Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 10.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 7.7M, 10%)
After an impressive start to the season, Leverkusen have fallen into a bit of a slump lately and are winless in their last four games in all competitions following Wednesday's shocking 1-2 DFB-Pokal defeat at home to 2. Bundesliga outfit Karlsruhe. Nevertheless, Jeremie Frimpong remains an option worth considering, with 'Die Werkself' set to take on a struggling Wolfsburg side, who sacked Mark van Bommel and replaced him with Florian Kohfeldt in the wake of last week's 2-0 defeat to Freiburg. The offensive oriented full-back has already picked up 70 points this season and was a bright spot against Karlsruhe, getting on the scoresheet.
Ramy Bensebaini, Gladbach (Defender, 10.3M, 2%)
Bensebaini grabbed a brace in Wednesday's impressive 5-0 DFB-Pokal victory over Bayern, which saw him play as a wing-back. One of Bensebaini's goals was scored from the penalty spot, which suggests that he's back on penalty duty after a spell on the sidelines. That alone makes the 26-year-old an interesting option, although he will probably drop back into the back three against Bochum, with Jordan Beyer set to miss the game due to an injury.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 11.1M, 10%)
Sosa began the season with a bang, taking 28 points from Stuttgart's opener against Greuther Fürth, but has since struggled to have the same impact. However, with Stuttgart facing relegation-threatened Augsburg and Bielefeld before the international break, it might be worth looking his way again.
Wooyeong Jeong, Freiburg (Midfielder, 5M, 8%)
The 22-year-old has already scored three goals this season and should have a good chance of adding to that tally as Freiburg face bottom-placed Greuther Fürth at home. You might might want to take him out next week, though, with Christian Streich's troops locking horns with FC Bayern at Allianz Arena on Matchday 11.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 5.3M, 0%)
Führich joined Stuttgart from Paderborn last summer after an impressive 2020/21 campaign that saw him rack up 13 goals and seven assists in the 2. Bundesliga. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old missed the start of the season due to an injury, but he has worked his way back to fitness, having started the last four games in all competitions. Führich is yet to score or assist in a Stuttgart shirt, but with the potential he has, he could be a great player to own with games against Augsburg and Bielefeld on the horizon before the international break.
Thorgan Hazard, Dortmund (Midfielder, 12M, 8%)
Coming off a brace in Tuesday's 2-0 DFB-Pokal win over Ingolstadt, the Belgian international could be a nice differential against a Köln side, who are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league this season.
Jonathan Burkardt, Mainz (Striker, 6.7M, 1%)
Burkardt justified his place among our recommendations last week as he went on to score 26 points – more than any other player on Matchday 9 – against Augsburg. He followed up on that with a goal and an assist in Mainz's 3-2 DFB-Pokal win over Arminia Bielefeld, who 'Die Nullfünfer' will now face again in the Bundesliga.
Lucas Höler, Freiburg (Striker, 7.5M, 1%)
The Freiburg striker is starting to prove himself as a reliable Fantasy asset, having picked up 73 points so far this season. Höler is the best-performing Freiburg player in terms of expected goals (2.85 xG) and will face a Greuther Fürth side, who have conceded more goals (24) than any other team in the league.
Breel Embolo, Gladbach (Striker, 10.4M, 3%)
After a disappointing return on Matchday 9, Embolo went on to score twice in Gladbach's 5-0 victory over Bayern in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. Both he and Gladbach should take confidence from that game going into Sunday's clash with Bochum.
Andrej Kramaric, Hoffenheim (Striker, 15.6M, 5%)
Kramaric looks like one of the most intriguing forwards before next month's international break, with Hoffenheim facing Hertha BSC and Bochum in their next two games. The fact that Hoffenheim play on Friday night this Matchday means he offers great flexibility.
