In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Angelino or Robert Lewandowski.


Instead, we will highlight players with an ownership percentage below 10%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 11.

Iago, Augsburg (Defender, 5.1m)
Iago missed out on Augsburg's 3-1 loss against Hoffenheim on Monday, but is expected to be ready for Sunday's clash against a Schalke side, who are without a win in their last 26 league games. Known as a full-back with attacking prowess, the 23-year-old is a steal at 5.1 million provided he's fit. UPDATE (Friday 11 November): Based on the pre-match press conference with Augsburg coach Heiko Herrlich, it looks like Sunday's game comes too soon for Iago. If you want to bring in a defender from Augsburg, you could look at Felix Uduokhai (5.7m) instead.

Daley Sinkgraven, Leverkusen (Defender, 6.8m)
Costing just 6.8 million, Sinkgraven is a cheap way into Leverkusen's defence. The 25-year-old has started four out of his team's last five games and most recently scored nine points. Should you want to invest more in a Leverkusen defender, Sven Bender is available for 10.1 million.

Christian Günter, Freiburg (Defender, 11.7m)
One of the top-scoring defenders last year, Günter is a proven Fantasy asset. The 27-year-old, who scored 14 points on Matchday 10, plays in an attacking wing-back role and is on set-piece duty for a Freiburg side, who have a good run of fixtures.

Jamal Musiala, Bayern München (Midfielder, 1.9m)
Jamal Musiala has forced his way into Bayern's first team with some quite impressive displays this season. At 17, Musiala still has a lot to learn, but the attacking midfielder has potential and possesses the ability to make a difference on his own as recently demonstrated in last week's 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig, which saw him score a great goal. Musiala is by no means a certain starter, but is in German football magazine Kicker's predicted line-up for Saturday's game against Union Berlin – and should he start on the bench, he's very likely to come on. With a price tag of just 1.9 million, it might be worth taking a punt on the youngster.


Ritsu Doan, Arminia Bielefeld (Midfielder, 7.9m)
With a good run of fixtures against Freiburg, Augsburg and Schalke 04 on the horizon, Bielefeld will be looking to build on last week's 2-1 win over fellow relegation rivals Mainz. Doan was instrumental to the win over Mainz, providing the assist for the opener before scoring a fantastic solo goal. In fact, the Japanese midfielder was the highest-scoring player on Matchday 10 along with Hoffenheim's Florian Grillitsch, racking up an impressive 20 points. Having previously picked up 15 points against Bayern München, 10 points against Wolfsburg and 8 points against RB Leipzig, Doan has proved that he can do well against any team.

Giovanni Reyna, Dortmund (Midfielder, 8.3m)
Reyna is in line to rotate back in the starting eleven for Saturday's game against Stuttgart after starting on the bench for Dortmund's 2-1 win over Zenit in mid-week. The U.S. international scored a wonderful goal against Frankfurt last week and offers great value for money with a price tag of just 8.3 million.

Daniel Caligiuri, Augsburg (Midfielder, 10.5m)
Caligiuri has arguably been Augsburg's most important player this season so far, contributing both defensively and offensively. The 32-year-old has netted twice in his last three games and took his tally in the league to four for the season with his goal in last week's 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim, which saw him pick up 14 points despite being on the losing team. Considering Augsburg have a run of favorable fixtures the fact that and Caligiuri is on set-pieces and penalties, it's hard to look past him.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 12.9m)
Grifo has been a valuable Fantasy asset in recent weeks, picking up 16 points in each of his last two games. Now set to face relegation candidates Arminia Bielefeld and Schalke 04, the winger is a very attractive pick.

Ermedin Demirovic, Freiburg (Striker, 6.9m)
The 22-year-old striker is yet to find the net this season, but looked very promising in last week's 2-2 draw with Gladbach and was deservedly singled out for praise by Freiburg coach Christian Streich after the game. With games against Arminia Bielefeld and Schalke 04 coming up, Demirovic can be a great differential.

Florian Niederlechner, Augsburg (Striker, 9.8m)
Having struggled to reproduce his form of the 2019/20 campaign, which saw him score 13 goals and make eight assists, Niederlechner will be looking to kickstart his season as Augsburg take on crisis-hit Schalke 04 at home.
