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


Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 13.

Marvin Schwäbe, FC Köln (Goalkeeper, 1M, 0%)
A number of cheap goalkeepers have emerged as options worth considering, with one of them being Marvin Schwäbe, who is expected to play at least the next five games for FC Köln as Timo Horn has been ruled out for the rest of the year. Pavao Pervan (Wolfsburg, 1M) and Josip Martinez (RB Leipzig, 1M) should earn rare starts as well, filling in for Koen Casteels and Peter Gulacsi, respectively. However, bringing in one of them would be more of a short-term decision as Casteels and Gulacsi will most likely be able to play again this year once they have recovered from COVID-19.

Mads Pedersen, Augsburg (Defender, 4.3M)
Augsburg pulled off one of the biggest shocks in the Bundesliga so far this season when they beat reigning champions Bayern 2-1 last week. With Iago back from injury, Danish left-back Mads Pedersen was pushed forward as a left midfielder, and the move paid off as the Dane scored and picked up 13 points. He should continue in that role against a Hertha side, who have taken just one point from their last three Bundesliga games.

Kevin Akpoguma, Hoffenheim (Defender, 5.8M, 2%)
Although a natural central defender, Akpoguma has done well at the right wing-back position recently. In fact, he scored more points (25) on Matchday 12 than any other player in the game even without scoring or assisting. With Hoffenheim now set to face bottom-placed Fürth, the 26-year-old looks like one of the most interesting picks in defence.

Maximilian Mittelstädt, Hertha (Defender, 7.1M, 1%)
Despite being a defender in the game, Mittelstädt has started the last five games on the left wing. It was a week to forget for the 24-year-old on Matchday 12 as he failed to pick up any points in his side's disappointing 2-0 defeat to local rivals Union Berlin. But after scoring double-digits in three of his four previous games, he is still worth keeping an eye on.


Amine Adli, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 8.3M, 0%)
Adli appeared in our tips last week, and he didn't disappoint with a goal and 13 points to his name. Although he will probably play on the wing instead of up front with Patrik Schick back from injury, the 21-year-old remains a good differential pick.

Lars Stindl, Gladbach (Midfielder, 13.7M, 6%)
After a handful of disappointing performances, Stindl showed just how a valuable Fantasy asset he can be as he picked up 19 points in Gladbach's 4-0 win over Greuther Fürth. Although Jonas Hofmann is arguably the better pick of the two at the moment, Stindl has the potential to outscore his teammate when he's on his game. At the same time, he offers more value as a differential as he is owned by fewer players.



Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 13.7M, 4%)
The Italian winger is Freiburg's set piece taker and attacking talisman. Despite the fact that Freiburg lost 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt last week, Grifo still managed to amass 10 points, taking his tally to 97 for the season. Looking at the last three Matchdays, Grifo is the second-highest scoring midfielder with 38 points, only behind Gladbach's Jonas Hofmann (42).

Jonathan Burkardt, Mainz (Striker, 7.5M, 3%)
Germany's U21 captain is one of the most in-form strikers in the league, having scored five goals in his last five games. He should have a good chance of adding to his goal tally against a Stuttgart side, who have only kept one clean sheet in the Bundesliga this season. Another plus is that he offers great flexibility because he's playing on Friday evening.

Taiwo Awoniyi, Union Berlin (Striker, 8.8M, 3%)
If you're looking for a consistent goalscorer up front, Awoniyi is surely an option worth considering. The Nigerian forward scored his eighth league goal of the season last week, meaning that only Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland have found the net more in the Bundesliga than him this term.

Andrej Kramaric, Hoffenheim (Striker, 15.8M, 5%)
Kramaric is in line to make his return from injury when Hoffenheim face crisis-hit Greuther Fürth this Saturday. With the high ceiling he has, the Croatian international could be a real difference-maker this week.
