Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 6

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 6.

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 6.

Pascal Stenzel, Stuttgart (Defender, 4M, 18%)
Stenzel has been a boom and bust player so far this season, with two big hauls but otherwise low scores. On sale this week for 4 million, you can't really go wrong with him.

Luca Netz, Gladbach (Defender, 6.4M, 0%)
Netz and Gladbach have struggled since the start of the season, but should have a good chance to bounce back in the coming weeks as their schedule eases considerably with games against Bochum, Mainz, FC Köln and Heidenheim coming up. An attacking wing-back, Netz could be a useful player to pick up if you're looking for a budget option at the back.

Mitchell Weiser, Werder Bremen (Defender, 10.8M, 16%)
Weiser was a disappointment last week, taking just five points in Bremen's 2-1 home win over Köln, but he remains one of the best options at the back as the Green-Whites take on a Darmstadt side who have just one point and allowed 16 goals.

Alejandro Grimaldo, Bayer Leverkusen (Defender, 10.8M, 18%)
Scored an acceptable 9 points last week and remains a decent option, either as an alternative to Jeremie Frimpong or as a second Leverkusen defender if you want to double up on Die Werkself, who look unstoppable at the moment.

Rocco Reitz, Gladbach (Midfielder, 2.1M, 2%)
One of the few bright spots of Gladbach's campaign so far, Reitz looks set to retain his starting spot after being one of his team's best performers in recent games, also from a Fantasy perspective. For the price of just 2.1 million, you get a likely starter for a Gladbach team with a really good schedule.

Jan-Niklas Beste, Heidenheim (Midfielder, 7.9M, 9%)
Heidenheim's attacking talisman, Beste has amassed an impressive 47 points in four appearances so far, averaging 11.7 points per game. He scored big in Heidenheim's first two home games of the season - 18 points against Hoffenheim on Matchday 2 and 19 against Werder Bremen on Matchday 4 - and could carry on in the same vein against a Union side struggling to display the defensive solidity they became known for last season.

Marco Reus, Borussia Dortmund (Midfielder, 13.3M, 2%)
If you're looking for an alternative to Julian Brandt in Dortmund's midfield, both Felix Nmecha and Marco Reus could offer good value at a lower price. After scoring Dortmund's winner against Wolfsburg last week, Reus looks set to continue in attacking midfield against Hoffenheim and is owned by just 2%.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 15.7M, 8%)
Grifo was one of the best fantasy assets in the Bundesliga last season, but while he's shown flashes of brilliance this campaign, he hasn't displayed the consistency to justify his high price tag. This has seen his ownership drop to 8%, making him a bit of a differential for Freiburg's favorable home game against Augsburg.

Kevin Behrens, Union Berlin (Striker, 9.6M, 8%)
Behrens started the season with a bang, scoring four goals in his first two games, but has now failed to find the back of the net in four consecutive games. This weekend's match against a Heidenheim side who have conceded at least two goals in every Bundesliga game this season should give him a good chance to get back on the scoresheet.

Marvin Ducksch, Werder Bremen (Striker, 11.3M, 1%)
Werder's set-piece specialist scored 15 points last week and should be able to continue his good form against 17th-placed Darmstadt.
