Robin Zentner (Mainz, 1.8M) and Mark Flekken (Freiburg, 2.1M) remain solid low-price options while Tomas Koubek (Augsburg, 7.2M), Rafal Gikiewicz (Union Berlin, 7.3M) and Frederik Rønnow (Frankfurt, 7.4M) offer good value for money as well.
Fantasy Bundesliga players don't come cheaper than Ismail Jakobs (FC Köln, 1M) who has played FC Köln's last three games. It's slightly doubtful if he'll be handed another chance, but he might be worth a gamble with a price tag of just 1 million.
With Union Berlin having a nice run of fixtures coming up, you could look at their wing-backs Christoper Lenz (Union Berlin, 2.6M) and Christopher Trimmel (Union Berlin, 8.2M). While Lenz's price is favorable, it might be worth spending a little more to bring in Trimmel who has set up five goals in all competitions this season.
Martin Hinteregger (Frankfurt, 10.3M) has been quite dangerous in front of goal this season, scoring five times in 23 appearances in total. Apart from actually hitting the back of the net, Hinteregger picks up plenty of points by making goal attempts and winning duels.
Philipp Max (Augsburg, 12M) also gets our recommendation. The left-back has been very impressive in recent weeks, racking up 64 points in his last three games.
Robert Andrich (Union Berlin, 4.8M) is generally a good low-price option in midfield, and he looks particularly interested now that Union Berlin have a couple of tasty fixtures against FC Köln and Paderborn coming up.
Florian Kainz (FC Köln, 6.1M) and Daichi Kamada (Frankfurt, 6.8M) could both offer good value for money as well, provided they start.
Leonardo Bittencourt (Werder Bremen, 11M) is starting to find his form at Werder Bremen. The 25-year-old has scored in each of his last two Bundesliga appearances and is an interesting option for his side's home game against Paderborn.
Christoher Nkunku (RB Leipzig, 11.4M) has been in extraordinary form lately and received plenty of praise from RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann ahead of Saturday's clash with Hoffenheim. Nkunku is a slight rotation risk, but should start once more, so he can continue his great form.
Marcus Ingvartsen (Union Berlin, 4.4M) looks like the most interesting low-price option up front. The Danish striker scored a penalty on Matchday 13 and set up a goal on Matchday 12. If you're willing to spend more on an Union Berlin striker, you could bring in Sebastian Andersson (Union Berlin, 10.1M) who has scored seven goals in 14 games in all competitions this season.
Florian Niederlechner (Augsburg, 9.6M) and Goncalo Paciencia (Frankfurt, 11M) are other solid striker picks.
Finally, with the form he's in, Milot Rashica (Werder Bremen, 13.8M) almost looks like a must-have player for Werder's home game against Paderborn.
