In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious premium options such as Jadon Sancho and Robert Lewandowski. Instead, we will take a look at the players who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 26.


Goalkeepers:
Florian Kastenmeier (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 1M) and Markus Schubert (Schalke 04, 1M) are two bargain options to consider. If you want to invest more in a goalkeeper, you could bring in Timo Horn (FC Köln, 6.1M).

Defenders:
Noah Katterbach (FC Köln, 1M) should start at left-back for a Köln side, who have a few great fixtures in front of them.

With a price tag of just 4.8 million, Matthias Zimmermann (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 4.8M) looks like a solid pick for Fortuna Düsseldorf's home game against Paderborn.

Angelino (RB Leipzig, 8.6M) has been in excellent form since joining RB Leipzig from Manchester City on loan in January and offers great value for money at just 8.6 million.

Wendell (Leverkusen, 10.3M) and Pavel Kaderabek (Hoffenheim, 10.8M) are other viable options.


Midfielders:
Kenan Karaman (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 5.6M), who plays as a striker despite being listed as a midfielder, has previously shown that he can find the net and looks like a good differential pick for Fortuna's home game against Paderborn.

Florian Kainz (FC Köln, 6.7M) was in great form before the Bundesliga was halted and is surely an option worth considering.

Christoph Baumgartner (Hoffenheim, 7.5M) has been one of Hoffenheim's stand-out performers this season, is set to start as a striker and has a nice run of fixtures coming up.

After going through a dip in form, Amine Harit (Schalke 04, 9.2M) found himself on the bench for Hoffenheim's last few games before the suspension of the Bundesliga. But as he proved several times in the first half of the season, the offensive midfielder can score big on his day.

If you have more to spend, it's certainly also worth considering Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig, 13.5M), who has been a revelation for RB Leipzig this season.

Strikers:
Matheus Cunha (Hertha BSC, 8.8M) has been one of the bright spots of a difficult year for Hertha so far. With Bruno Labbadia having taken over the coaching reins from Alexander Nouri, the German capital club might get things moving in a more positive direction.

Mark Uth (FC Köln, 10.7M) was on a roll before the Bundesliga season was suspended and looks like a great pick for Köln's home game against Mainz. As does his teammate Jhon Cordoba (FC Köln, 11.7M), who has scored 10 league goals so far this season.

Finally, Patrik Schick (RB Leipzig, 11.2M) offers good value for money at 11.2 million. The striker is carrying a minor knock, but is expected to make the squad.
