In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious premium options such as Jadon Sancho, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Robert Lewandowski.


Instead, we will highlight players with a ownership percentage below 10%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 34.

Just like last week, you should be aware that all games will be played at the same time on Saturday, which means you can see how every team line up before the transfer deadline.

It also means that you will not be able sub in players throughout the weekend, so having a strong starting line-up is all that matters.

Goalkeepers:
If you're looking for a cheap option in goal, you could go with Florian Kastenmeier (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 1M). Fortuna Düsseldorf still have everything to play for as they need a win over Union Berlin to guarantee safety.

Mark Flekken (Freiburg, 1M) has been mentioned as a possible starter for Freiburg's home clash with struggling Schalke 04 and could be a great differential if he's in the line-up.


Defenders:
Ludwig Augustinsson (Werder Bremen, 8.2M) and Theodor Gebre Selassie (Werder Bremen, 8.3M) both like to come forward for a Werder side, who will need to beat FC Köln to have a chance of avoiding relegation.

Bayern München coach Hansi Flick has confirmed that Alvaro Odriozola (Bayern München, 8.7M) will be given a rare start against Wolfsburg. With a price tag of 8.7 million, he offers a fairly cheap way into the Bayern defence.

Jonathan Schmid (Freiburg, 9.4M) and Christian Günter (Freiburg, 13.4M) are proven Fantasy performers and both look like solid picks as Freiburg face a crisis-hit Schalke side, who haven't won a Bundesliga game since January.

You could also look at Ramy Bensebaini (Gladbach, 9.9M), who was among the highest-scoring Fantasy defenders last week, picking up 13 points against Paderborn.

Wendell (Leverkusen, 10M) and Danny da Costa (Frankfurt, 10.6M) are other viable options in defence.

Midfielders:
Listed as a midfielder, but playing as a striker, Kenan Karaman (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 5.7M) could offer good value for money as Fortuna face Union. His teammate Erik Thommy (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 10M) is also worth considering.

Daichi Kamada (Frankfurt, 7.7M) is set to return from suspension and offers a lot of potential as Eintracht Frankfurt lock horns with a Paderborn side, who have already been relegated.

Jonas Hofmann (Gladbach, 11.2M) was the highest-scoring midfielder last week, racking up 18 points despite failing to score or make an assist. This shows just how involved he is in Gladbach's attacks.

Leonardo Bittencourt (Werder Bremen, 11.6M) has previously shown he can step up when Bremen need him, scoring the winners against Freiburg and Schalke in May. With Werder desperately in need of three points against Köln, the 26-year-old could play a key role once again.

Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig, 12.6M) has picked up a solid amount of points since the league's restart and has singled out for praise by RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann ahead of Saturday's clash with Augsburg. "I'm really happy with Dani Olmo's performances. He's an extremely hard-working and intelligent player, who really wants to win. He's a competitive guy and has a lot more in his locker where goals are concerned, for example," Nagelsmann said.

Vincenzo Grifo (Freiburg, 12.7M) had been in impressive form before Matchday 33, racking up 42 points in his last three games prior to last week's loss to Bayern München. This time around, he certainly has the chance to score big again as Freiburg face crisis-hit Schalke.

Strikers:
If he starts, Lucas Höler (Freiburg, 9.1M) is an intriguing option for Freiburg's home game against Schalke.

After having scored three times in his last four games, Rouwen Hennings (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 11.1M) could find the net once more against Union Berlin.

With Eintracht Frankfurt taking on bottom side Paderborn at home, André Silva (Frankfurt, 11.5M) is a must-have player this time around.

Although he failed to score last week, Breel Embolo (Gladbach, 12.3M) caused plenty of trouble against Paderborn, using his pace and physicality. With a little more luck, the 23-year-old might be able to hit the back of the net against Hertha. Of course, you should also consider his teammate Lars Stindl (Gladbach, 13.5M), who bagged a brace last week.
