Fantasy Bundesliga: 10 players to consider for Matchday 19

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 19.
In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Joshua Kimmich or Jamal Musiala.

Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 20%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 19.

Philipp Max, Frankfurt (Defender, 9M, 0%)
German football magazine Kicker is tipping the PSV loanee to come straight into Frankfurt's starting line-up for their home game against crisis-hit Hertha BSC. If he plays, the attacking wing-back could cause plenty of problems for the shaky Hertha defence.

Christopher Trimmel, Union Berlin (Defender, 9.7M, 11%)
Prediting who will start as wing-backs for Union is really difficult, with Christopher Trimmel, Josip Juranovic, Jerome Roussillon and Niko Giesselmann competing for two spots. However, it's fair to assume that Trimmel, who has scored 40 points in his last two games, will start this week's home match against Mainz after watching Tuesday's 2-1 DFB-Pokal win over Wolfsburg from the bench.

Piero Hincapié, Leverkusen (10.6M, 1%)
A switch from 3-5-2 to 4-3-3 has seen Hincapié move from central defence to left-back to the benefit of his Fantasy output. The 21-year-old has picked up 21 points in his last two games – one point more than the more popular Jeremie Frimpong – and is now set to face Augsburg in a stand-alone fixture on Friday evening.

João Cancelo, Bayern (Defender, 13M, 0%)
Playing as a right wing-back in a 3-4-3 system, the Manchester City loanee impressed and provided an assist as he made his Bayern debut in Wednesday's 4-0 win over Mainz. In light of Cancelo's impressive debut and the performances he has delivered for Manchester City in the past seasons, it's very appealing to bring him in right away.

Daichi Kamada, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 11.9M, 11%)
Even if Kamada has struggled to live up to his brilliant performances before the World Cup, the Japanese international is certainly an intriguing option for Frankfurt's tasty home game againt Hertha as an alternative to his more popular teammate Jesper Lindstrøm.

Marco Reus, Dortmund (Midfielder, 13.1M, 3%)
Marco Reus finally made his comeback from injury off the bench against Leverkusen last week and is expected to make his first start of 2023 against Freiburg this weekend. If you want the BVB captain in your squad, now is a good time to bring him in, as he's on sale.

Christoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim (Midfielder, 14.1M, 10%)
Hoffenheim are going through a difficult spell at the moment, having lost three of four games in 2023 so far. Saturday's clash with struggling Bochum represents a good chance of getting back on track, and Christoph Baumgartner is certainly one of their more attractive Fantasy assets, coming off a 12-point haul against Gladbach.

Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 16.1M, 19%)
Many Fantasy managers opted to ship out Hofmann last week, as he was very questionable, but he managed to recover from illness in time to start against Hoffenheim and went on to pick up a whopping 28 points. With Gladbach facing Schalke 04 and Hertha in their next two games, he's very hard to look past this week.

Kevin Behrens, Union Berlin (Striker, 4.9M, 0%)
Behrens has grown in importance from Union as the season has progressed and looks in line to start against Mainz after scoring the winner off the bench in the DFB-Pokal against Wolfsburg in mid-week.

Moussa Diaby, Leverkusen (Striker, 14.4M, 7%)
Although he's yet to find the net in 2023, Diaby has looked as threatening as ever for Leverkusen, and he could certainly have scored against Dortmund last time out if it wasn't for a couple of excellent saves from Gregor Kobel. With Leverkusen kicking off the matchday against Augsburg on Friday, Diaby could give you the perfect start to the weekend if he has a good game.
