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


Instead, we will highlight players with a lower ownership percentage, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 4.

Keep in mind that there is no transfer limit this time around, so you can make all the changes you want until the round kicks off on Saturday.

Frederik Rønnow, Schalke 04 (Goalkeeper, 1.7m)
With Ralf Fährmann ruled out with an injury, Eintracht Frankfurt loanee Frederik Rønnow is set to come into Schalke's starting eleven for the home game against Union Berlin. Schalke have conceded 15 goals in their first three league games of the season, so don't expect a clean sheet, but Rønnow's low price and the fact that you can sub him on before the last game of the round makes him a very attractive second-choice goalkeeper.

Daley Sinkgraven, Leverkusen (Defender, 6.1M)
With 13 points to his name, Sinkgraven hasn't been particularly productive so far this season, but the left-back's low price tag combined with Leverkusen's great schedule make him a player worth considering.

Almamy Touré, Frankfurt (Defender, 8.1m)
Having been in the line-up for the last two games, Touré seems to have nailed down a starting place at the expense of Danny da Costa and Timothy Chandler. Playing as a right wing-back and owned by just 1%, the 24-year-old picked up an impressive 12 points on Matchday 3, and he is likely to make another solid contribution as Frankfurt face a Köln side, who have lost their first three games of the season. Frankfurt will be up against Bayern München on Matchday 5, so you might want to sell him again next week, but since there is no transfer limit this time around, Touré might be worth a short-term punt.


Christopher Lenz, Union Berlin (Defender, 9.5m)
Lenz has been the fifth-highest scoring defender in the game so far, racking up 29 points in three games. Coming off a crushing 4-0 victory over Mainz on Matchday 3, Lenz and Union have a good schedule ahead of them.

Angelino, RB Leipzig (Defender, 13.5M)
Having already picked up 37 points this season, Angelino has been more productive than any other defender from a Fantasy perspective. Still just owned by 14%, the Spanish wing-back is very hard to look past.

Jean-Manuel Mbom, Werder Bremen (Midfielder, 1.3m)
Costing just 1.3m, Mbom offers plenty of bang for you buck. The central midfielder has racked up 13 points in his last two games and should keep his starting spot against Freiburg.

Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 12.7m)
Hofmann's points tally of 33 makes him the third-highest scoring midfielder and by far the most productive Gladbach player until now. With upcoming fixtures against Wolfsburg and Mainz, who are both still winless in the league this season, the 28-year-old is surely an option worth considering.

Leon Goretzka, Bayern München (Midfielder, 14.1m)
Goretzka has already scored two goals for Bayern in all competitions this season and also found the net while he was on international duty with Germany. With a lower ownership percentage and price than most of Bayern's other players with attacking prowess, the 25-year-old is a great pick for Saturday's clash with newly-promoted Bielefeld.

Lucas Alario, Leverkusen (Striker, 9.9m)
Patrik Schick's injury means that Lucas Alario is expected to play up front for Leverkusen in the weeks to come. Having scored 37 goals in 101 games for Leverkusen so far, the Argentine striker deserves to be on your Fantasy radar, especially considering that 'Die Werkself' have a very decent run of fixtures coming up.

Matheus Cunha, Hertha BSC (Striker, 12.7m)
Hertha have been very inconsistent from the start of the season, losing two out of their three opening games, but Cunha has still managed to pick up 31 points. The Brazilian has a bit of x-factor about him and can be a huge difference-maker when he's on his game. Now set to face a Stuttgart side, who are hit by injuries in defence, the 21-year-old could be a very good differential.
