Pavao Pervan (Wolfsburg, 1.7M) and Robin Zentner (Mainz, 1.8M) are both good options if you're looking for a cheap goalkeeper.
Zack Steffen (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 7.8M) is the highest-scoring fantasy goalkeeper until now and remains a great choice at 7.8 million.
Marcelo Saracchi (RB Leipzig, 5.6M) came on to score against Werder on Matchday 5 and looks like a potential starter, with Marcel Halstenberg doubtful for the game against Schalke 04 on Saturday.
Leverkusen full-backs Lars Bender (Leverkusen, 7.9M and Wendell (Leverkusen, 10.5M) look like solid options as 'Die Werkself' take on Augsburg.
Christian Günter (Freiburg, 11.4M) and Stefan Lainer (Gladbach, 11M) have been the second- and third-highest scoring fantasy defenders so far, respectively, and the latter looks like a particularly good choice going forward.
Niko Gießelmann (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 8.3M) and Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha BSC, 9.3M) are two other full-backs who could be worth a punt. They both take set pieces and have some manageable fixtures coming up.
It's also worth mentioning Pavel Kaderabek (Hoffenheim, 11.4M) who currently plays as a winger despite being listed as a defender in-game.
Laszlo Benes (Gladbach, 3.6M) has been one of Gladbach's best-performing players lately and looks like a bargain at just 3.6 million. Daichi Kamada (Eintracht Frankfurt, 6.6M), who is set to return to Frankfurt's starting eleven, is another good, cheap option.
Marius Wolf (Hertha BSC, 7.8M) and Javairo Dilrosun (Hertha BSC, 11.1M) both scored on Matchday 5 and are worth looking at, with Hertha having a nice run of fixtures in front of them.
Amine Harit (Schalke 04, 8.6M) is in excellent form, but it may not be the right time to pick him up as Schalke have a tough away game against RB Leipzig coming up.
Ellyes Skhiri (FC Köln, 8.6M) has been among Köln's stand-out performers so far and has picked up 38 points so far. His point haul is quite impressive, considering his side's difficult opening games, and it will be interesting to see what he can do in the upcoming weeks now that Köln have some more manageable fixtures coming up.
Josip Brekalo (Wolfsburg, 8.8M) didn't have his best game last time around, but still looks like a good pick.
Nadiem Amiri (Leverkusen, 11.3M) and Axel Witsel (Borussia Dortmund, 11.6M) were among the highest-scoring fantasy midfielders on Matchday 5 and could be worth picking up ahead of this weekend.
Finally, it's worth mentioning the in-form Marcel Sabitzer (RB Leipzig, 13M) who has been the second highest-scoring fantasy midfielder so far.
Lucas Höler (Freiburg, 6.4M), who has scored in each of his last two games, is one of the few cheap strikers worth considering.
Looking at the higher-priced options, Jhon Cordoba (FC Köln, 10M) looks like a possible differential pick. The 26-year-old may not have scored so far, but has made plenty of attempts on goal, and it only looks a matter of time before he will get on the scoresheet.
Lucas Alario (Leverkusen, 10.2M) and André Silva (Frankfurt, 10.7M) are other mid-price options to consider. The two strikers both scored on Matchday 5 and are relatively low priced.
Meanwhile, it's also worth looking at Marcus Thuram (Gladbach, 11.4M), who gathered confidence with a brace against Fortuna Düsseldorf. Alassane Pléa (Gladbach, 13.1M) didn't have a good game on Matchday 5, but has been quite impressive otherwise.
