In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious premium options such as Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski. Instead, we will take a look at the players who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 16.



Goalkeepers:
Fantasy Bundesliga players don't come cheaper than Markus Schubert (Schalke, 1M) who is set to start in the next few games while Alexander Nübel is suspended after being shown a straight red card on Matchday 15.

If you want to bring in a cheap keeper, you could also pick Robin Zentner (Mainz, 1.3M).

Timo Horn (FC Köln, 6.3M) and Tomas Koubek (Augsburg, 7.2M) are viable options if you're willing to invest a little more.

Defenders:
FC Köln have a few interesting low-price defenders in Noah Katterbach (FC Köln, 1.2M) and Ismail Jakobs (FC Köln, 1.2M), with the latter even expected to start on the wing.

Eintracht Frankfurt have been in poor form lately, but 'Die Adler' now have a couple of nice fixtures coming up, so you might want to consider Almamy Touré (Frankfurt, 4.5M) and Danny da Costa (Frankfurt, 11.7M).

Werder Bremen are struggling even more than Frankfurt, but have an even more tasty run of fixtures coming up. Michael Lang (Werder Bremen, 4.6M), who should start at right-back, used to score plenty of goals when he played for Basel in the past and might be worth taking a punt on.

Christopher Trimmel (Union Berlin, 8.9M) remains a great option, and so does Philipp Max (Augsburg, 12.5M) who netted twice on Matchday 15.

Midfielders:
Laszlo Benes (Gladbach, 3.8M) is a slight rotation risk, but should retain his place in the starting eleven against Paderborn. Priced at just 3.8 million, he's a cheap way into the Gladbach midfield.

Fredrik Jensen (Augsburg, 4.5M), who scored on Matchday 15, and Robert Andrich (Union Berlin, 4.9M) are other attractive budget options.

Alphonso Davies (Bayern München, 6.2M) might play as a left-back, but offers a lot going forward, and considering he's currently a safe starter for Bayern, his price tag is quite low.

Daichi Kamada (Frankfurt, 7M) should offer good value for money as he looks set to return to Frankfurt's line-up against Mainz.

Leonardo Bittencourt (Werder Bremen, 11.1M) is expected to be back in the starting eleven for Werder, and with an ownership of less than 1 percent, he could be a nice differential.

Strikers:
Marcus Ingvartsen (Union Berlin, 4.7M) remains the best low-price striker after scoring on Matchday 15.

If you have more to spend on a striker, you could bring in the in-form Florian Niederlechner (Augsburg, 10.4M) who racked up 17 points on Matchday 15.

Goncalo Paciencia (Frankfurt, 10.9M) should return to the Frankfurt line-up and looks like an interesting option, with 'Die Adler' facing Köln and Paderborn in their final two games of 2019.

Finally, Marcus Thuram (Gladbach, 13.1M) has the potential to score big at home against Paderborn, and the same goes for Milot Rashica (Werder Bremen, 14.2M) who will be looking to find the net again after scoring a great goal against Bayern last week.
