In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.


Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 7.

Benno Schmitz, FC Köln (Defender, 4.7M)
The Köln full-back scored a whopping 38 points in his first three appearances this season. Schmitz has only managed to take eight points from his last two games, but with a home game against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth now coming up, he could get back to his early season form.

Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 7.4M)
Frimpong had a great game against Mainz last week as he scored 18 points after providing the assist for Florian Wirtz's winner. With a game against a winless Arminia Bielefeld now coming up before the international break, he could provide great value for the price.

Christian Günter, Freiburg (Defender, 12.1M)
Having picked up at least 10 points in five of six games this season, Günter is the second-highest scoring defender in the game. Freiburg are in great form and take on crisis-hit Hertha BSC, who were thrashed 6-0 by RB Leipzig last week.

Angelino, RB Leipzig (Defender, 14.1M)
Angelino finally showed what an asset he can be with a 19-point haul against Hertha last week and will be welcomed back into the team after missing Tuesday's 1-2 defeat to Club Brugge due to suspension. Leipzig should have a good chance of bouncing back from that defeat, with a home game against 17th-placed Bochum coming up.


Florian Kainz, FC Köln (Midfielder, 7.8M)
Kainz has already picked up 49 points this season and plays on Friday against crisis-hit Greuther Fürth, who have already considered 16 goals this season – more than any other Bundesliga side.

Julian Brandt, Dortmund (Midfielder, 10.1M)
With Mahmoud Dahoud and Giovanni Reyna out, Julian Brandt is expected to start in central midfield alongside Jude Bellingham as Borussia Dortmund take on 15th-placed Augsburg at home.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 12.6M)
After a couple of disappointing performances, Grifo played a key role and scored 13 points in Freiburg's 3-0 win over Augsburg last week. With in-form Freiburg now set to face a Hertha side, who lost 6-0 to Leipzig last week, Grifo is an intriguing option.

Christopher Nkunku, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 14.9M)
Nkunku has scored six goals in his last four appearances in all competitions and is difficult to overlook this week, with Leipzig taking on Bochum at home.

Anthony Modeste, FC Köln (Striker, 7.4M)
Modeste has already scored four goals this season and will be keen to add to that tally at home against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth.

Donyell Malen, Dortmund (Striker, 12.2M)
Malen stepped up in Erling Haaland's absence against Sporting CP, scoring the winner in Dortmund's 1-0 victory in mid-week. With the Norwegian striker a doubt once more, Malen offers a cheaper route into Dortmund's attack.
