Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 20%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 21.
Philipp Max, Eintracht Frankfurt (Defender, 8.9M, 6%)
Eintracht will be determined to bounce back from their disappointing 3-0 defeat against FC Köln when they face Werder Bremen in a stand-alone on Saturday evening. Max looks nailed on to start in an attacking wing-back role on the left and could cause real damage with his attacking prowess.
Jonas Hector, FC Köln (Defender, 10.5M, 8%)
Köln have looked solid at the back recently, keeping three clean sheets in a row, and Hector has produced double-digits in two consecutive matches.
Raphael Guerreiro, Dortmund (Defender, 12.8M, 9%)
It seems reasonable to own at least one Borussia Dortmund defender at the moment considering their good options at the back, great form and attractive schedule. Guerreiro is less popular than Nico Schlotterbeck and Julian Ryerson, but has actually outscored them recently, taking a whopping 45 point from his last two matches.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 12.8M, 0%)
Sosa was back in Stuttgart's starting line-up against Freiburg last week and set up his side's opener, taking his assist tally to six in 14 league games this season. With 'Die Schwaben' now having two fine fixtures ahead, the Croatian left-back could be a great differential.
Arne Engels, Augsburg (Midfielder, 1.5M, 1%)
Augsburg and Engels disappointed against Mainz last week, but the youngster remains one of the best budget options in the game, costing just 1.5 million. Starting off with Friday's game against out-of-form Hoffenheim, Augsburg have a nice run of fixtures coming up.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 8M, 1%)
Führich has scored in two of his last three games, picking up 34 points, and plays for a Stuttgart side with a few appealing matches on the horizon.
Florian Wirtz, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 13.1M, 13%)
Leverkusen have eased Wirtz back following his long injury spell, rotating him out of the line-up at times, but he should be given more and more minutes as the season progresses. In last week's 3-1 win over Hoffenheim, the 19-year-old showed once again just how much of a difference it makes for Leverkusen when he's on the pitch, setting up a goal and scoring 13 points.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bayern Munich (Striker, 6.1M, 19%)
Choupo-Moting still looks nailed on to start up front for Bayern, but despite this and his low price tag, the 33-year-old striker is owned by just 19 percent.
Sheraldo Becker, Union Berlin (Striker, 11.8M, 5%)
After an outstanding start to the season, Becker has only managed to score once and provide one assist in his last 13 Bundesliga games. Nevertheless, the 28-year-old might be worth getting this week, as he's one of the few nailed on players for Union and faces bottom-placed Schalke 04 in a stand-alone fixture on Sunday.
Sebastien Haller, Dortmund (Striker, 13.6M, 7%)
With Youssoufa Moukoko set for a long injury break, Sebastien Haller should be in line to start up front for Dortmund in the weeks to come. The Dutchman has scored 18 points in his last two matches and plays for an in-form side with a great schedule.
