Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 6.
Alexander Meyer, Dortmund (Goalkeeper, 2.5M, 1%)
Meyer was in goal for Dortmund in their 3-0 Champions League win over FC Copenhagen in mid-week after Gregor Kobel sustained an injury. With Kobel likely to be out until the international break, Meyer looks like a good pick for the next few weeks.
Luca Pellegrini, Frankfurt (Defender, 8.1M, 1%)
In light of Eintracht's Champions League games this and next week, head coach Oliver Glasner is expected to rotate his side for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Wolfsburg. Pellegrini missed last week's 4-0 win over RB Leipzig through injury and came on at half-time of Tuesday's 0-3 defeat against Sporting CP. With Christopher Lenz ruled out, the Italian left-back looks quite certain to start for a Frankfurt side with a favorable run of fixtures coming up.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 11.3M, 9%)
Leverkusen are in the middle of a crisis, having lost six of their seven games in all competitions this season, so investing in them is obviously a gamble at this stage. But since 'Die Werkself' have a quite attractive schedule until the international break, facing Hertha BSC and Werder Bremen in their next two, Jeremie Frimpong could be worth a punt. The 21-year-old has played in an attacking wing-back role lately and showed the potential he has on Matchday 4 with his brace against Mainz.
Raphael Guerreiro, Dortmund (Defender, 12.6M, 11%)
Guerreiro celebrated his return from injury with a goal in Dortmund's 3-0 win over Copenhagen in the Champions League. The 28-year-old has a higher ceiling than most other defenders and will now look to hurt a Leipzig side, who have appointed former BVB boss Marco Rose their new coach as a replacement for Domenico Tedesco after back-to-back losses that have seen 'Die Roten Bullen' concede eight goals.
Niklas Schmidt, Werder Bremen (Midfielder, 2.9M, 0%)
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder earned his first start of the season against Bochum last week and is likely to retain his starting spot with Leonardo Bittencourt still out and Jens Stage only just back in training. If Schmidt is in the starting line-up against Augsburg on Friday evening, he could prove to be a great differential at a low price, with teammate Romano Schmid (Midfielder, 4.9M, 0%) also being an option worth considering in midfield.
Wooyeong Jeong, Freiburg (Midfielder, 7.1M, 0%)
Jeong is in line to make his first start of the season against Gladbach on Sunday after he came on for Roland Sallai and made an assist in Freiburg's 3-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen last week. With Sallai ruled out, Jeong is a cheaper, less popular alternative to teammates Ritsu Doan and Vincenzo Grifo.
Mario Götze, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 9.4M, 10%)
As earlier stated, Frankfurt are likely to make a number of changes because of their involvement in the Champions League. But after establishing himself as an undisputed starter in attacking midfield following his summer move from PSV, Götze is widely being tipped to retain his starting place at home against a Wolfsburg side yet to win a game in the league this season.
Simon Terodde, Schalke 04 (Striker, 4.1M, 1%)
The 2021/22 campaign's top goalscorer in the 2. Bundesliga finally found the net for the first time this season on Matchday 5, scoring the equaliser against Stuttgart. With Schalke facing bottom-placed Bochum at home this weekend, he offers plenty of potential at a low cost.
Niclas Füllkrug, Werder Bremen (Striker, 6.1M, 9%)
We also recommended Füllkrug last week, and he didn't disappoint, picking up a whopping 20 points against Bochum. The experienced forward has now scored five goals in five games this season and plays a crisis-hit Augsburg side on Friday evening. What's not to like?
Serge Gnabry, Bayern (Striker, 14M, 6%)
After starting on the bench two games in a row, Gnabry is likely to start up front against Stuttgart, with Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann expected to rotate his side to cope with a tight schedule.
