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 15.

Benno Schmitz, FC Köln (Defender, 4.8M, 4%)
Schmitz costs just 4.8 million, has picked up seven points per game on average and plays a standalone match on Friday. Köln are yet to lose a game at home this season while Augsburg have the second worst away record in the league.

Timo Baumgartl, Union Berlin (Defender, 5.9M, 1%)
18-percent owned Niko Gießelmann is the most obvious pick from Union in defense, but if you're looking for a differential, Baumgartl is an alternative worth considering. The centre-back has taken 35 points from his last three games – more than any other defender in the league – and will now come up against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth at home.

Raphael Guerreiro, Dortmund (Defender, 14.3M, 13%)
After being rested in the Champions League in mid-week, Guerreiro should start Dortmund's last three Bundesliga games of the year, provided he can stay injury-free. The Portuguese left-back has scored an average of nine points per game, and Dortmund have a favorable run of fixtures before Christmas, with games against Bochum, Greuther Fürth and Hertha BSC coming up.

Amine Adli, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 8.3M, 0%)
Adli racked up 18 points last week after scoring and providing an assist against Greuther Fürth, taking his points tally for his last three games to a whopping 38.

Ondrej Duda, FC Köln (Midfielder, 10M, 1%)
Although the 27-year-old disappointed last week, he should remain on your radar, with FC Köln facing relegation candidates Augsburg on Friday. If Duda is in the line-up, he might be worth taking a punt on.

Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 11.9M, 14%)
Szoboszlai has rotated in and out of the Leipzig team this season, but has still done quite well from a Fantasy perspective, picking up 115 points in total and 9 points per game on average. The Hungarian midfielder scored and played well in Leipzig's first game after the sacking of Jesse Marsch, helping 'Die Roten Bullen' to an impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City in the Champions League, so he should stay in the starting eleven.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 14.4M, 5%)
Grifo is a very reliable source of points, having picked up 15, 14 and 10 points on Matchday 14, 13 and 12, respectively. What's most impressive about his form is that Freiburg actually lost two of those games. They should be heading into this weekend with plenty of confidence, though, having crushed Gladbach 6-0 in their last game.

Anthony Modeste, FC Köln (Striker, 8.5M, 9%)
After finding the net eight times in his first 11 Bundesliga games of the season, Modeste has now gone three matches without scoring, but he remains an attractive option, with Köln hosting 16th-placed Augsburg in a standalone match on Friday.

Taiwo Awoniyi, Union Berlin (Striker, 9.1M, 4%)
Hoffenheim's Ihlas Bebou grabbed a hat-trick against Greuther Fürth on Matchday 13 before Leverkusen's Patrik Schick put four past the helpless bottom-placed side last week. With Awoniyi, who is already on nine Bundesliga goals this season, set to come up against the shaky Fürth backline this weekend, it might be his turn to gather a big points haul.

Stevan Jovetic, Hertha BSC (Striker, 10.1M, 1%)
Coming off a brace against Stuttgart, Jovetic will be aiming to find the net again versus 17th-placed Arminia Bielefeld at home.
