Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 15

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 15.
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 15.

Jordy Makengo, Freiburg (Defender, 2.4M, 0%)
Currently one of the best budget defenders in the game, Makengo has scored 10 points in each of his last two games and plays for a Freiburg team with two good matchups before Christmas.

Joakim Mæhle, Wolfsburg (Defender, 7.5M, 1%)
Mæhle is an attacking fullback with an eye for goal, as he has shown for the Danish national team, where he has scored an impressive 11 goals in 42 appearances. So far, however, he hasn't really shown that side of his game for Wolfsburg, having only scored once and provided one assist since his summer move from Atalanta, but that could change now that he's been moved to the left wing-back position he usually plays in for the national team. This weekend's clash against a Darmstadt side who are winless in their last seven matches certainly looks to be a good opportunity for the Dane to do well, although Wolfsburg themselves have struggled of late.

Robin Gosens, Union Berlin (Defender, 11.5M, 6%)
Union have looked much improved since Nenad Bjelica took over as coach, and one of the changes he's made is to move Gosens from full-back to the wing. The German international picked up an acceptable 9 points against Gladbach last week, despite not being directly involved in a goal and not keeping a clean sheet, and Union now have winnable games against Bochum and FC Köln coming up.

Brajan Gruda, Mainz (Midfielder, 1.8M, 6%)
At a cost of just 1.8 million, the young attacking midfielder has been one of the bright spots in what has been a very difficult campaign for Mainz so far. Die Nullfünfer have actually looked pretty good at times in recent weeks and have been unlucky not to get more points and score more goals. This week's home game against Heidenheim is certainly one they will be looking to win, and Gruda could play a key role in getting those vital three points.

Merlin Röhl, Freiburg (Midfielder, 2.7M, 1%)
Like Gruda, Merlin Röhl is making his breakthrough in the Bundesliga this season, having worked his way into Freiburg's starting lineup. Playing in an attacking role, Röhl has two goals and two assists in 15 appearances for Freiburg in all competitions this season, and he could add to that tally before Christmas with two favorable fixtures on the horizon.

Jamal Musiala, Bayern (Midfielder, 15.8M, 15%)
Musiala made his first start for Bayern since returning from injury in the 1-0 win over Manchester United in midweek and showed great promise, although he wasn't involved in the winner. He should start again in Sunday's crunch clash with Stuttgart, with Bayern hoping the 20-year-old will play a key role as he has so often done in the past.

Julian Brandt, Dortmund (Midfielder, 17.7M, 18%)
After a disappointing run of games, Brandt returned to double figures against RB Leipzig last week, scoring 16 points in Dortmund's 2-3 loss. With BVB facing Augsburg and Mainz in their last two games before Christmas, Brandt should have a good chance of finishing the year on a high.

Mathys Tel, Bayern (Striker, 8.7M, 1%)
With both Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry sidelined, Tel is likely to start on the wing for Bayern in the coming games. 8.7 million is by no means a high price to pay for a starting attacker for the German champions, and Tel has been involved in nine goals (six goals, three assists) in 19 appearances this season despite only four starts in all competitions.

Jonas Wind, Wolfsburg (Striker, 12.8M, 7%)
Wolfsburg will look to put an end to a bad run of form when they face a team in even more trouble than they are: Darmstadt. Having been involved in 12 goals in 14 Bundesliga appearances for Wolfsburg this season, Saturday's game looks like a tasty one for Jonas Wind.

Lois Openda, RB Leipzig (Striker, 16.8M, 18%)
After a well-deserved rest in midweek, Openda should be fresh to make a difference against an injury-hit Hoffenheim side on Saturday evening. With 10 goals and three assists in 14 league games already, the Frenchman is one of the most intriguing forwards this week.
