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 18.
Sven Ulreich, Bayern (Goalkeeper, 1M, 4%)
With Manuel Neuer in quarantine, Sven Ulreich is in line to start against Gladbach, provided the match will not be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Bayern's squad.
Aaron Martin, Mainz (Defender, 3.6M, 2%)
Aaron plays as a wing-back and is on set pieces for a Mainz side, who have conceded the third fewest goals in the league. In addition, 'Die Nullfünfer' have a quite favorable schedule.
Pavel Kaderabek, Hoffenheim (Defender, 9.9M, 1%)
After recovering from a long-term injury, Kaderabek started Hoffenheim's last game of 2021 as a right wing-back, picking up 13 points against Gladbach. A defender who likes to get forward, the Czech international could be a great differential now that he's fit again.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 10.7M, 8%)
Stuttgart kick off the second half of the season against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth, which automatically makes them interesting from a Fantasy perspective. Sosa showed how high his ceiling can be in the reverse fixture, which saw him score a whopping 28 points.
Raphael Guerreiro, Dortmund (Defender, 14.1M, 13%)
After recovering from yet another muscle injury, Guerreiro is fit for the start of the second half of the season. If he can stay injury-free, the Portuguese international is undoubtedly one of the best defensive options in the game.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 4.8M, 0%)
Führich is a midfielder in the game, but looks set to start up front against a Greuther Fürth side, who have conceded 49 goals in 17 games this season.
Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 14.8M, 7%)
Freiburg's attacking talisman has amassed an impressive nine points per game on average this season and kicks off 2022 with a home game against 17th-placed Arminia Bielefeld.
Kevin Schade, Freiburg (Striker, 1.2M, 1%)
If you're looking to free up funds, Schade could provide excellent value for money with a price tag of just 1.2 million. The youngster has already found the net twice in the Bundesliga this season and is expected to start against Bielefeld.
Jonathan Burkardt, Mainz (Striker, 7.9M, 2%)
Burkardt and Mainz will be looking to build on their impressive first half of the season, facing a COVID-stricken RB Leipzig side as well as Bochum and Greuther Fürth in their first three league games of the year.
Ihlas Bebou, Hoffenheim (Striker, 8.6M, 0%)
Bebou has found the net five times in 13 league games this season, including a hat-trick against Greuther Fürth in November. The 27-year-old is owned by 0 percent of managers, is available at a fairly low price considering his potential output and will face an Augsburg side, who have won just one of their nine away games this season.
