Robin Zentner (Mainz, 1.6M) and Mark Flekken (Freiburg, 1.8m) are the cheapest starting goalkeepers you will find if you're looking for bargain options.
If you're willing to spend a little more on a goalkeeper, you could look at Thomas Koubek (Augsburg, 7.1M) who seems to be starting to find his feet after a difficult start in Germany. Although Koubek and Augsburg have struggled this season, they now have a fairly good run of fixtures coming up as they face Hertha BSC (H), Köln (A) and Mainz (H) in their next three games.
Zack Steffen (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 7M) is a great long-term option, but if he's not in your squad already, you might want to wait to bring him in as Fortuna will be up against Bayern this time around.
Frederik Rønnow (Frankfurt, 7.4M) should stay in goal until the winter break and is another solid option in the same price category.
Christopher Lenz (Union Berlin, 2.4M) currently looks like the best bargain option in defence. His teammate Christopher Trimmel (Union Berlin, 7.9M) is a little more expensive, but has offered good value for money so far.
Schalke 04's Jonjoe Kenny (Schalke 04, 8.2M) and Bastian Oczipka (10.8M) remain good long-term options.
The same goes for Pavel Kaderabek (Hoffenheim, 11.3M), Stefan Lainer (Gladbach, 11.7M) and Achraf Hakimi (Dortmund, 12.9M) who all have decent matchups this week.
Lukas Rupp (Hoffenheim, 3.4M), Laszlo Benes (Gladbach, 4M) and Alphonso Davies (Bayern, 6.2M) are all good budget options.
Patrick Herrmann (Gladbach, 8.9M) has done well for Gladbach in recent weeks and might be worth taking a punt on following his brace against Werder Bremen on Matchday 11.
Karim Bellarabi (Leverkusen, 11.9M) and Marcel Sabitzer (RB Leipzig, 13.8M) have both been doing consistently well.
You could also invest in Leon Goretzka (Bayern, 12.2M) who looked in great form for Germany during the international break.
Jürgen Locadia (Hoffenheim, 10M) has scored three games in a row and is currently the only fully fit Hoffenheim striker, with Ihlas Bebou, Andrej Kramaric and Sargis Adamyan all struggling ahead of Sunday's clash with Mainz.
Marcus Thuram (Gladbach, 12.5M) and Milot Rashica (Werder Bremen, 13.2M) are other in-form strikers worth considering.
Finally, it may be worth investing in Paco Alcacer (Borussia Dortmund, 14.7M), provided he's in the line-up for Dortmund's home clash with Paderborn tonight.
