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 14.
Michael Esser, VfL Bochum (Goalkeeper, 1.7M, 0%)
With Manuel Riemann ruled out of Bochum's trip to Augsburg, Esser will be handed a rare start. Esser proved himself as a valuable Fantasy asset while playing for Hannover 96 seasons ago and now plays for a Bochum side, who concede a lot of shots.
Benno Schmitz, FC Köln (Defender, 4.8M, 4%)
With a total of 82 points to his name this season, Schmitz has been one of the best cheap defenders in the game so far. After amassing 12 points in Köln's 4-1 victory over Gladbach last week, Schmitz will now come up against relegation candidates Bielefeld and Augsburg in his next two games.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 8.4M, 11%)
Frimpong ranks as the third-highest scoring defender, having picked up 110 points so far. Having scored his first Bundesliga goal last week, he could do a lot of damage against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth at home. Be aware, though, that Frimpong is just one booking away from suspension.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 11.1M, 10%)
The Croatian wing-back is once again starting to look like the player that made him so popular among Fantasy Bundesliga managers last season. Most recently, he scored the winning goal in Stuttgart's 2-1 win over Mainz, picking up 10 points.
Amine Adli, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 8.3M, 0%)
Apart from Florian Wirtz, who is owned by 29 percent, Adli seems like the most intriguing Leverkusen midfielder this week. The young winger has an ownership percentage of 0% and has scored 20 points over his last two games.
Ondrej Duda, FC Köln (Midfielder, 10M, 1%)
Duda had a very good game against Gladbach last week, getting on the scoresheet and picking up 16 points, and will look to build on that performance as Köln prepare to face relegation-threatened Bielefeld and Augsburg in their next two games.
Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 14.4M, 13%)
Hofmann performs week in, week out, but is still owned by just 13 percent of managers. The 29-year-old has taken 40 points from his last three games, which is more than any other player, and even though Gladbach lost 4-1 last week, he still managed to score 14 points.
Georginio Rutter, Hoffenheim (Striker, 7.8M, 0%)
The 19-year-old scored a whopping 23 points last week after bagging a brace and providing an assist in Hoffenheim's 6-3 win over Greuther Fürth, taking his points tally to 34 in his last two games.
Anthony Modeste, FC Köln (Striker, 8.5M, 9%)
Modeste didn't have his best game against Gladbach last week, but still managed to pick up seven points. The veteran forward already has eight Bundesliga goals under his belt this season and could be a great player to own in the weeks to come, especially with Köln's favorable fixtures in mind.
Patrik Schick, Leverkusen (Striker, 14.6M, 7%)
The Czech international has a very high ceiling this week as he looks set to lead the line for Leverkusen against crisis-hit Fürth, who conceded six goals against Hoffenheim last week.
