Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 20%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 29.
Oliver Baumann, Hoffenheim (Goalkeeper, 8.3M, 2%)
Looking at the last four matchdays, Baumann has been in remarkable, consistent form, scoring at least 8 points per game and 35 points over that time span, so if you're looking for a goalkeeper, he's a good option that may have flown under the radar a bit.
Josha Vagnoman, Stuttgart (Defender, 4.2M, 1%)
Borna Sosa is usually the name that comes to mind when considering Fantasy assets from Stuttgart, but since Sebastian Hoeness took over as coach, Josha Vagnoman has proven to be worthy of consideration as well. With a whopping 40 points in his last two games, Vagnoman could be a great difference-maker to star on Friday night as Stuttgart look to extend their three-game unbeaten streak in all competitions against Augsburg.
Pavel Kaderabek, Hoffenheim (Defender, 8.5M, 0%)
In terms of Fantasy production, Kaderabek is currently one of the most in-form players in the league with 41 points in his last four games. After a rough patch, Hoffenheim seem to have turned the corner and are now on a four-game unbeaten streak, which they should have a good chance of continuing at home against FC Köln.
Joao Cancelo, Bayern Munich (Defender, 13.8M, 13%)
With Benjamin Pavard suspended, the Portugal international should start on the right side of defense against Mainz. With four double-digit hauls and an average of 8 points per game, Cancelo usually does well when he plays.
Kevin Stöger, Bochum (7.8M, 6%)
Despite his low price and ownership, Stöger has actually been the second best midfielder in the last five games with 46 points, behind only Dominik Szoboszlai. It's worth noting that he's scored from the penalty spot in three of those games, but his consistency is still impressive, as he's picked up at least 7 points every week over the period.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 8M, 0%)
Führich is playing out of position as a striker for a Stuttgart team, who seem to have turned their fortunes around with Sebastian Hoeness at the helm. Although Führich hasn't been particularly good Fantasy wise in recent weeks, he could be worth a shot for the Friday night game against Augsburg, who will be without three of their key players in Gikiewicz, Gouweleeuw and Berisha.
Christoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim (Midfielder, 14.9M, 8%)
Playing out of position as a striker, Baumgartner is an intriguing option in midfield as in-form Hoffenheim take on a Köln side who have conceded in four of their last five Bundesliga matches.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bayern Munich (Striker, 5.8M, 4%)
Owned by just 4% and costing a measly 5.8 million, Choupo-Moting is expected to lead the line for Bayern again against Mainz. The 34-year-old's physical presence and goalscoring ability were sorely missed by the German champions while he was out injured, so his return should improve their attacking game in general.
Donyell Malen, Borussia Dortmund (Striker, 13.3M, 5%)
Looking at the last four matchdays, Malen is tied with Raphael Guerreiro for the most points produced with 50. With Brandt and Bellingham struggling to find the form they showed earlier in the season, Reus on the bench and Haller not finding the net on a consistent basis, he's arguably Dortmund's most in-form attacking asset right now.
Marcus Thuram, Gladbach (Striker, 15M, 15%)
Thuram is on a roll with two goals and two assists in his last four games, scoring double-digit points in three of them. The Frenchman offers great flexibility, as he'll be involved in the final game of the weekend at home to Union Berlin, and has two tasty games against Stuttgart and Bochum coming up after that.
