In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Alphonso Davies, Christopher Nkunku and Sadio Mané.

Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 12.

Sven Ulreich, Bayern (Goalkeeper, 3.4M, 3%)
With Manuel Neuer still out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, Ulreich will get at least one more game in goal for Bayern.

Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 7.8M, 3%)
Otavio has scored double digits in two of his last four games. A home game against Bochum makes him an extremely attractive option, even if Bochum are coming off an impressive win against Union, although it's a downside that he's just one yellow card away from suspension.

Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 12.1M, 2%)
As he has proved a number of times this season, Sosa's ceiling is high. That combined with his low ownership and a favorable game against Augsburg make him very interesting this week.

Felix Nmecha, Wolfsburg (Midfielder, 3M, 0%)
Nmecha started against Leverkusen last week and was praised as Wolfsburg's best player in that game by his coach Niko Kovac afterwards. Therefore, he looks likely to start once more at home against 17th-placed Bochum.

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, Freiburg (Midfielder, 5.4M, 1%)
Kyereh offers a cheap alternative to Grifo and Doan as Freiburg look to face bottom-placed Schalke 04.

Christoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim (12.7M, 11%)
If you want a player from the last game of the weekend between Hoffenheim and Köln, Baumgartner is a very good shout. He had a quiet match against Bayern last week, but playing against a Köln side that have conceded seven goals in their last two Bundesliga games will be a much different task.

Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 13.2M, 11%)
Szoboszlai has emerged as a safe starter since Marco Rose took over as RB Leipzig coach and has set up three goals in Leipzig's last two games.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bayern (Striker, 4.7M, 4%)
Choupo Moting is in amazing form at the moment, having scored five goals in his last four competitive games, and should therefore keep his starting place against Mainz.

Stevan Jovetic, Hertha (Striker, 8.3M, 0%)
Jovetic has taken 12 points from each of his last two games and will now come up against an out-of-form Werder side.

Michael Gregoritsch, Freiburg (Striker, 9M, 9%)
The Austrian international plays up front against Schalke, which automatically makes him interesting. In addition, his price is fairly low, he's been doing well for Freiburg this season and is playing a stand-alone fixture.
