Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 29.
Marcel Lotka, Hertha BSC (Goalkeeper, 1M, 0%)
Lotka was subbed on after Alexander Schwolow sustained an injury during last week's 1-2 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen and ended up scoring five points despite conceding twice. With Schwolow now ruled out for the foreseeable future, Lotka is currently the cheapest starting goalkeeper in the game.
Niko Giesselmann, Union Berlin (Defender, 5.4M, 13%)
Back to full fitness after an inconsistent period, Giesselmann picked up eight points last week. Playing as a left wing-back, the 30-year-old will probably go head-to-head with untested 18-year-old Julian Eitschberger, who is being tipped to earn his senior start for Hertha at right-back due to Peter Pekarik's likely absence. Giesselmann has scored a total of 170 points this season, meaning he ranks as the eighth highest-scoring defender despite his relatively low price tag.
Jerome Roussillon, Wolfsburg (Defender, 6.3M, 7%)
After missing Wolfsburg's disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Augsburg last week, Roussillon should be back at his usual left wing-back spot against out-of-form Arminia Bielefeld, who are winless in their last five games.
Silvan Widmer, Mainz (Defender, 7.7M, 8%)
Coming off a goal against Augsburg in mid-week, Widmer will now face a Köln side with a number of notable absentees, including Benno Schmitz, Timo Hübers and Salih Özcan. In terms of Fantasy output so far this season, only three other defenders (Schlotterbeck, Günter and Gvardiol) have done better than Widmer, who has amassed seven points per game on average.
Ramy Bensebaini, Gladbach (Defender, 10.8M, 4%)
Bensebaini is one of the defenders with the highest potential this matchday, with Gladbach facing bottom-placed Greuther Fürth. The Algerian international should play as a wing back and is on penalties.
Jae-sung Lee, Mainz (Midfielder, 6.5M, 1%)
With an ownership percentage of just 1 percent, Jae-sung Lee could be a great differential for the next few games, with Mainz looking at fixtures against injury-hit FC Köln and relegation-threatened Stuttgart. Last week, the attacking midfielder managed to score 14 points despite playing just 22 minutes against Gladbach. Lee's minutes have been managed recently after an exhausting international break, which saw him travel a total of 20244 kilometers play two full games for South Korea, but he's expected to be fit enough to start this weekend.
Giovanni Reyna, Dortmund (Midfielder, 10.7M, 8%)
German football magazine Kicker is predicting Reyna to be in Dortmund's starting eleven against Stuttgart. Should he indeed start, which will be revealed when Dortmund's starting eleven is revealed around an hour before the transfer deadline on Friday, the 19-year-old wonderkid could be a real difference-maker.
Kerem Demirbay, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 13.3M, 1%)
With 25 points to his name in his last two games, Demirbay has taken on more offensive responsibility since Florian Wirtz sustained a long-term injury. Back from suspension, the 28-year-old could be a nice differential as he's just owned by 1 percent.
Taiwo Awoniyi, Union Berlin (Striker, 9.4M, 3%)
Awoniyi was the joint third-highest scoring striker last week, picking up 14 points after getting on the scoresheet against FC Köln. The Nigerian forward should have a good chance of getting on the scoresheet again, with Union coming up against a Hertha side with several absentees in defense.
Alassane Plea, Gladbach (Striker, 15.4M, 3%)
After a really productive spell, Plea didn't have his best game against Mainz last week. Nevertheless, having scored 11,6 points on average in his last five games, the Frenchman is surely worth considering against last-placed Fürth.
