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


Instead, we will highlight players with an ownership percentage below 10%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 14.

Peter Pekarik, Hertha BSC (Defender, 4.6m)
Nailed on to start at right-back for a Hertha side with a great schedule on the horizon, Pekarik could offer great value for money.

Tin Jedvaj, Leverkusen (Defender, 4.8m)
Since both Daley Sinkgraven and Wendell have tested positive for coronavirus, Jedvaj could come into the Leverkusen line-up from the start of 2021. Priced at just 4.8m, he's a cheap way into the 'Werkself' defence if he starts. Fortunately, you will be able to see if he's in the line-up before the Fantasy Bundesliga transfer window slams shut on Saturday.

Ismail Jakobs, FC Köln (Defender, 6.6m)
Jakobs has struggled to live up to the expectations after his breakthrough campaign last season, which saw him score twice and set up two goals in 20 games. Nevertheless, the 21-year-old is worth considering due to his low price, Köln's favorable fixtures and the fact that he usually plays on the wing despite being listed as a defender on the game.

Ryan Sessegnon, Hoffenheim (Defender, 9.1m)
Sessegnon finished off the year in impressive fashion, scoring two goals and making two assists in his last six Bundesliga games of 2020. The Tottenham loanee is mostly used as a left-back, but is also capable of playing further forward if needed and plays for a side with a great schedule.


Aymen Barkok, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 3.9m)
Much like Sessegnon, Barkok has really started to make a name for himself in the Bundesliga as the season has progressed. The 22-year-old has made 13 appearances so far with two goals and three assists to his name and should be nailed to start following Bas Dost's departure. With a price of just 3.9m, he may be worth a punt, but you should be aware that he's just one yellow card away from a suspension.

Ondrej Duda, FC Köln (Midfielder, 7.8m)
After falling out of favor at Hertha BSC, Duda is trying to resurrect his career at FC Köln, where he has become a key player, scoring two goals and making three assists in 12 games so far. The 26-year-old, who scored 11 goals and made six assists for Hertha in the 2018/19 season, plays up front for a Köln side with a great fixture list and is available for just 7.8m.

Christoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim (Midfielder, 11.3m)
Baumgartner has found the net four times and set up five goals in 21 games in all competitions this season. With Hoffenheim taking on Freiburg, Schalke, Bielefeld, Hertha and FC Köln in their next five games, he could be a great differential.

Matheus Cunha, Hertha BSC (Striker, 14.4m)
Cunha will be out to prove himself after he was singled out for some heavy criticism by Hertha coach Bruno Labbadia after being taken off at half-time against Freiburg on Matchday 13. The Brazilian was on fire from the start of the campaign, scoring six goals and making two assists in his first eight league appearances, but then fell into a slump. If he can rediscover his form from earlier this season, the 21-year-old could be a great differential, especially since Hertha have a great schedule ahead, starting with a home game against bottom-side Schalke on Saturday.

Patrik Schick, Leverkusen (Striker, 14.7m)
After adjusting to his new surroundings, Schick seems to have established himself as Leverkusen's clear first-choice forward ahead of Lucas Alario. The Czech international finished off 2020 with three goals and an assist in his last four games and will be eager to continue his form in the new year.

Andrej Kramaric, Hoffenheim (Striker, 15.6m)
Kramaric is expensive, but can certainly justify his price tag when he's in form. Having already found the net 13 times in 14 games in all competitions this season, the Croatian international could be a real difference-maker in the weeks to come.
