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 19.

Cedric Brunner, Bielefeld (Defender, 5.3M, 0%)
Bielefeld are in great form, having won two and drawn one of their last three games, and now face fellow relegation candidates Greuther Fürth at home in a six-pointer. While Brunner only managed to amass two points last week, he actually scored 10 in each of his last two games before the winter break.

Kevin Akpoguma, Hoffenheim (Defender, 5.5M, 2%)
With Pavel Kaderabek out injured again, Akpoguma should start at right wing-back for Hoffenheim for weeks to come. Akpoguma has picked up six points on average, with the defender's best return being his insane 25-point haul against Leipzig on Matchday 12. Most recently, he scored 11 points against Augsburg despite only playing 53 minutes.

Silvan Widmer, Mainz (Defender, 7.6M, 6%)
It just wasn't Mainz's day against Leipzig last week as Bo Svensson's troops fell to a 4-1 defeat after Alexander Hack saw red in the first half. 'Die Nullfünfer' have generally had an impressive season, though, and Widmer has played a key role in their success, picking up 123 points in total, which makes him the sixth-highest scoring defender in the game. He most recently played as a centre-back, but has been tipped to return to the right wing-back this weekend. With Mainz facing Bochum and Fürth in their next two games, Widmer looks like a great option for the price.

Patrick Wimmer, Bielefeld (Midfielder, 5.4M, 2%)
Wimmer has settled in really well following his summer move from Austria Vienna, scoring two goals and making four assists in 16 Bundesliga appearances so far. With 118 points to his name, the winger has been the highest-scoring player for Bielefeld, who lock horns with bottom-placed Fürth at home this weekend. The only disadvantage is that he's just one yellow card away from a one-match suspension.

Masaya Okugawa, Bielefeld (Midfielder, 7.1M, 2%)
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is another great option from Bielefeld, having scored in each of his last three Bundesliga games.

Jesper Lindstrøm, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 8.1M, 2%)
Another in-form player, Lindstrøm was nominated for the Bundesliga's Player of the Month award for December after he scored three goals and provided two assists in four games last month. The Danish international wasn't directly involved in any of Frankfurt's goals against Dortmund last week after returning from quarantine, but still showed plenty of attacking threat.

Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 12.5M, 14%)
RB Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco has sung the praises of Dominik Szoboszlai ahead of Saturday's clash with Stuttgart – and deservedly so after the 21-year-old scored and provided an assist in last week's 4-1 win over Mainz. Szoboszlai struggled to nail down a starting berth in the first half of the season, but looks like a safe starter for the time being.

Rafael Borre, Frankfurt (Striker, 9.3M, 1%)
After a difficult start to life at Frankfurt, Borré seems to have found his feet in Germany. The 26-year-old has either scored or assisted in each of his last five Bundesliga games and is coming off a brace against Dortmund. Another plus is Frankfurt's favorable schedule, which will see them face Augsburg, Bielefeld and Stuttgart in their next three games.

Karim Onisiwo, Mainz (Striker, 8.7M, 0%)
With Jonathan Burkardt getting a lot of attention, his partner in crime up front, Karim Onisiwo, has been a little more under the radar. Burkardt has scored five Fantasy points more than Onisiwo, but the latter has played fewer minutes and has done better in terms of both expected goals and expected assists.

André Silva, RB Leipzig (Striker, 16.6M, 7%)
Silva began 2022 with a bang, bagging a brace against Mainz, and has now found the net four times in his last four Bundesliga games.
