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 18.

Josha Vagnoman, Stuttgart (Defender, 8.2M, 1%)
Started on the wing in Stuttgart's 1-3 loss to Gladbach last week and scored the Swabians' only goal of the game. Although he may be moved back to right back, Vagnoman is a nice option this week, as he's on sale and Stuttgart are expected to improve against Bochum.

Niels Nkounkou, Eintracht Frankfurt (Defender, 9.2M, 1%)
Was given the nod over Philipp Max at left wing-back last week and repaid the faith with an assist and a whopping 20 points against RB Leipzig. Eintracht now have some really tasty fixtures on the horizon, starting with a trip to relegation-threatened Darmstadt this weekend, so Nkounkou should have a good chance of continuing his good form.

Ian Maatsen, Borussia Dortmund (Defender, 10M, 1%)
Was thrown straight into Dortmund's starting lineup for last week's 3-0 win over Darmstadt. He looked very impressive and now has three nice fixtures coming up.

Merlin Röhl, Freiburg (Midfielder, 3.2M, 3%)
Played a bit deeper than usual last week, filling in for the suspended Nicolas Höfler, but still managed to take a respectable 7 points. The youngster should be back in the attacking midfield for the home game against Hoffenheim this weekend, which should only increase his chances of getting a good return.


Robin Hack, Gladbach (Midfielder, 7.4M, 1%)
One of the standout performers last week, Hack scored a brace in Gladbach's 3-1 win over Stuttgart. He will take confidence from that performance as the Fohlen head into a favorable home match against Augsburg before tough away trips to Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich.

Ansgar Knauff, Eintracht Frankfurt (Midfielder, 8.7M, 1%)
Scored the winner and picked up 11 points in Frankfurt's win over RB Leipzig and now heads into a string of nice fixtures.

Lovro Majer, Wolfsburg (Midfielder, 11.5M, 1%)
Majer had a really productive matchday 17, scoring 14 points, and is on set pieces for a Wolfsburg team with some favorable fixtures on the horizon.

Deniz Undav, Stuttgart (Striker, 10.8M, 19%)
Undav and Stuttgart had a bit of an off-day against Gladbach last week, but he still managed to score 7 points. With Undav having found the net nine times in 14 games this season, he and his team will be looking to bounce back against Bochum.

Sasa Kalajdzic, Eintracht Frankfurt (Striker, 11M, 0%)
Had a rather quiet Frankfurt debut against Leipzig, but should get more chances against a leaky Darmstadt side this weekend.

Jonas Wind, Wolfsburg (Striker, 13.1M, 9%)
Wolfsburg's top striker has struggled to maintain his early-season form, but remains their biggest threat up front. With Wolfsburg facing Heidenheim and FC Köln next, the Dane is an intriguing option.
