In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Jeremie Frimpong and Harry Kane.

Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 20%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 4.

Moritz Nicolas, Gladbach (1.1M, 4%)
Jonas Omlin is out with a long-term injury, so Nicolas should start for a long time. He impressed in his debut, scoring 8 points against Bayern, and is a no-brainer at 1.1 million.

Omar Traoré, Heidenheim (Defender, 1M, 8%)
With Marnon Busch still out injured, Traoré remains the cheapest starter in the game, costing the lowest possible price.

Mitchell Weiser, Werder Bremen (Defender, 9.5M, 10%)
After a very impressive 4-0 win over Mainz before the international break, Werder now have one of the best schedules in the league, facing Heidenheim, Cologne, Darmstadt and Hoffenheim in their next four games. A proven Fantasy asset, Weiser has scored 25 points in his last two games, and you can even save 1.1 million by grabbing him this week, as he's on sale.

Benjamin Henrichs, RB Leipzig (Defender, 12M, 16%)
With 45 points after three games, Henrichs has been the third-most productive defender in the game, behind only Jeremie Frimpong and Alphonso Davies. As Leipzig prepare for a very favorable game at home against Augsburg, the Germany international is one of the most intriguing picks at the back this week.

Brajan Gruda, Mainz (Midfielder, 1M, 0%)
If you're looking for a midfield enabler, it doesn't get any cheaper than Gruda. The highly-rated youngster started in an attacking role against Werder and is coming off an impressive performance for Germany's U21 side, setting up two goals in a 3-0 win over Kosovo. With Ludovic Ajorque fit again, Gruda may not start this week, but he should at least come off the bench.

Nathan Ngoumou, Gladbach (Midfielder, 6.2M, 7%)
After an impressive start to the season with a goal and 13 points against Augsburg, Ngoumou has struggled in Gladbach's last two difficult matches against Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich. This weekend's clash with bottom side Darmstadt could see him return to form.

Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 9.6M, 8%)
With the exception of their second half performance against RB Leipzig, Stuttgart have been very impressive this season, most recently crushing Freiburg 5-0. Not least thanks to the performances of Führich, who already has two goals and two assists to his name.

Marvin Ducksch, Werder Bremen (Striker, 10.9M, 2%)
On all set pieces for Werder, Ducksch could be a great differential to own up front in the coming games given the Green-Whites' nice run of games. However, after picking up a knock against Mainz, Ducksch is doubtful for the game against Heidenheim, so make sure he's passed fit if you want to bring him in.

Serhou Guirassy, Stuttgart (Striker, 13M, 9%)
Guirassy tops the scoring charts with five goals after three games and will now face the bottom two teams in the league, Mainz and Darmstadt.

Lois Openda, RB Leipzig (Striker, 14.5M, 14%)
In a week where two of the game's other premium strikers, Harry Kane and Victor Boniface, face off, Openda has the advantage of being involved in a very favorable fixture, with Leipzig facing Augsburg at home.
