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


Instead, we will highlight players with an ownership percentage below 10%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 16.


Erik Durm, Frankfurt (Defender, 3.6m)
With his 17 point-haul against Mainz, Durm was the highest-scoring defender on Matchday 15, and he remains a great bargain pick, costing just 3.6 million.

Maximilian Mittelstädt, Hertha BSC (Defender, 8.2m)
The 23-year-old was deployed on the wing against Arminia Bielefeld and could potentially fill out that role once more against crisis-hit FC Köln with the injured Matheus Cunha unlikely to be fit in time for the weekend.

Mateo Klimowicz, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 1.9m)
At just 1.9m, Klimowicz could give you great bang for your buck. The 20-year-old started in Stuttgart's 4-1 win over Augsburg last week and is likely to remain in the line-up after he impressed and won a penalty in his side's win.


Ritsu Doan, Bielefeld (Midfielder, 8.8m)
The ninth-highest scoring midfielder in the game with 112 points to his name so far, Doan has made an impressive impact at Bielefeld since his loan move from PSV in September. Most recently, the Japanese midfielder picked up 12 points in last week's 1-0 win over Hertha, which saw him hit the post after a mazy solo run. Perhaps he will have a bit more luck in front of goal against a Hoffenheim side, who have lost their first two games of 2021, conceding seven times.

Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 13.2m)
Hofmann, who bagged a brace in Gladbach's 3-2 win over Bayern München last week, has had a fantastic start to 2021 after returning from injury, scoring a whopping 42 points in his last two games.

Filip Kostic, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 15.9m)
The 28-year-old Serbian international might not be the cheapest option, but he has been a consistent source of points in recent weeks and has a great schedule ahead.

Matthew Hoppe, Schalke 04 (Striker, 1.4m)
The U.S. youngster will head into Sunday's clash against Frankfurt with confidence after grabbing a hat-trick against Hoffenheim on Matchday 15. With a price of just 1.4m, he might be worth a punt if you're looking for a cheap forward.

Sheraldo Becker, Union Berlin (Striker, 4m)
Another cheap striker with confidence, Becker will be looking to continue his good form against Leverkusen after having scored two games in a row.

Jhon Cordoba, Hertha BSC (Striker, 11.3m)
Jhon Cordoba will be hoping to strike against his former club as Hertha aim to put last week's disappointing 1-0 to Bielefeld behind them when they take on troubled FC Köln. With his nose for goal and ruthless finishing, the 27-year-old striker can be a great differential when he's on his game, and Hertha have a handful of favorable fixtures ahead.

Marco Reus, Dortmund (Striker, 17.6m)
The BVB skipper looked back to his best in last week's 3-1 victory over RB Leipzig, which saw him pick up 15 points after providing two great assists. With an ownership percentage of just 3%, he offers an alternative to teammate Erling Haaland, who is owned by almost half of Fantasy Bundesliga managers.
