Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 13.
Lukas Kübler, Freiburg (Defender, 6.6M, 1%)
Kübler is back in form after a long spell on the sidelines and has won back a starting place at the right side of defence. His last two games have seen him score 13 and 12 points, respectively.
Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 8.2M, 11%)
Otavio is one of the league's most in-form defenders in terms of Fantasy output with 40 points to his name in his last three games.
Niklas Süle, Borussia Dortmund (Defender, 10.6M, 4%)
Due to Borussia Dortmund's long injury list, Süle should start as a right-back against Bochum this weekend. He showed what he can do from that position against Stuttgart on Matchday 11, amassing a whopping 23 points. If Raphael Guerreiro (12.3M, 4%) is passed fit to start on the left side of defence, he could be an even better option than Süle, so keep an eye out for Edin Terzic's pre-match press conference.
Lars Stindl, Gladbach (Midfielder, 10.3M, 2%)
After two quiet games, the Gladbach captain returned to double digits last week, amassing 10 points in a difficult away game against Union Berlin. Gladbach now have two favorable matchups against Stuttgart and Bochum, the first of them being a stand-alone fixture on Friday evening.
Jesper Lindstrøm, Eintracht Frankfurt (Midfielder, 12.7M, 9%)
While Daichi Kamada is the most popular option in midfield for Eintracht Frankfurt at the moment, Lindstrøm has performed considerably better Fantasy wise than his Japanese teammate as of late. Quite impressively, Lindstrøm has scored at least 17 points in three of his last five appearances.
Julian Brandt, Borussia Dortmund (Midfielder, 13.1M, 4%)
After scoring and picking up 11 points against Eintracht Frankfurt, Brandt was one of the regulars that started on the bench against Copenhagen on Wednesday. He was eventually subbed on in the second half and instantly provided a spark for BVB, setting up a Youssoufa Moukoko shot that hit the post. With Dortmund set to face Bochum at home, many Fantasy Bundesliga managers will probably target Jude Bellingham this week unless they already own him, but Brandt is certainly an interesting option as well in case you're looking to double up on BVB or want a player that is more of a differential.
Leon Goretzka, Bayern (Midfielder, 14.6M, 10%)
Especially after last week, many Fantasy Bundesliga managers are probably asking themselves if Leon Goretzka has become a better Fantasy Bundesliga asset than Joshua Kimmich. Goretzka has scored double digits in three of his last four outings, picking up 39 points in the process. In comparison, those four games have resulted in just 24 points for Kimmich.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bayern (Striker, 5.1M, 10%)
Choupo-Moting is on a roll, having found the net seven times in his last six games. Even if the veteran striker has played a lot recently, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann can't take him out of the starting line-up at the moment with the form he's in. The fact that he's available for just 5.1 million and has relatively low ownership only makes him more appealing.
Marvin Ducksch, Werder Bremen (Striker, 8M, 2%)
With Werder Bremen facing crisis-hit Schalke 04 at home this weekend, many Fantasy players will be targeting Niclas Füllkrug unless they already own him, but if you want a differential option, you could go for his striking partner Marvin Ducksch instead. Ducksch found the net 21 times and provided 10 assists in the 2. Bundesliga through the 2021/22 campaign, but has just two goals and three assists to his name in the Bundesliga this season. That could change against Schalke, who have lost six successive games.
Youssoufa Moukoko, Borussia Dortmund (Striker, 9.7M, 5%)
It could prove difficult to find space for Moukoko in a week with many other intriguing options up front, but the 17-year-old certainly has potential this week. Like Brandt, Moukoko was rested from the start in mid-week and should return to the starting line-up this weekend. The youngster has already scored double digits on three occasions this season and could be in for another big game against Bochum.
