Instead, we will highlight players with an ownership percentage below 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 19.
Florian Müller, Freiburg (Goalkeeper, 4.2m)
One of the cheapest starting goalkeepers you can find, Müller's 22-point haul against Stuttgart last week made him the third-highest scoring player in the game on Matchday 18. The Freiburg goalkeeper has generally been a reliable Fantasy asset this season, picking up a total of 102 points.
Mateu Morey, Dortmund (Defender, 2.2m)
With Thomas Meunier ruled out, Morey is set to keep his starting place on the right side of defence. Costing just 2.2 million, he offers a lot of potential at a low cost as Dortmund take on Augsburg at home.
Erik Durm, Frankfurt (Defender, 3.6m)
Durm is very hard to look past at the moment due to his price, position as a wing-back and the fact that he's a certain starter for an in-form Frankfurt side with a favorable schedule.
Felix Agu, Werder Bremen (Defender, 4.4m)
The young full-back has seized his chance while Ludwig Augustinsson has been out with an injury and currently looks like one of the most attractive bargain defenders.
Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 8.3m)
Otavio had a great game against Leverkusen last week, scoring a whopping 18 points, with 12 of them coming from won duels. Playing for a Wolfsburg side in fine form and with a nice schedule ahead, the 26-year-old is a good long-term option for a reasonable price.
Mateo Klimowicz, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 1.8m)
Klimowicz isn't certain to start, but since Stuttgart face Mainz on Friday, you will be able to see if he's in the line-up before the Fantasy transfer window slams shut. Available for just 1.8 million, the technically gifted youngster has looked very promising at times this season, although he could definitely improve his end product, having only found the net once with an expected goals of 2.84.
Romano Schmid, Werder Bremen (Midfielder, 5.1m)
Coming off a crushing 4-1 victory over Hertha, Werder have a favorable run of fixtures ahead starting with this week's home game against Schalke 04. Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt has been singing the praises of Schmid recently – and deservedly so. The 21-year-old costs just 5.1 million and plays a striker despite being a midfielder in the game.
Filip Kostic, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 16.8m)
Kostic gave his best performance of the season yet in last week's 5-1 victory over Arminia Bielefeld, which saw him pick up 24 points after scoring and making an assist. His price tag is steep, but if Kostic can replicate last week's form, he's surely worth the cash. If you're looking for a cheaper option, his teammate Amin Younes is a very solid pick at 6.9 million.
Josh Sargent, Werder Bremen (Striker, 9.1m)
After coming on to score a wonderful goal against Hertha on Matchday 18, Sargent was guaranteed a starting spot by Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt at the press conference ahead of Saturday's clash with Schalke 04. If he can build on last week's performance, Sargent could be a great differential this week.
André Silva, Frankfurt (Striker, 18.3m)
The fourth-highest scoring player in the game so far, Silva just can't stop scoring goals at the moment. Since Frankfurt have three great fixtures ahead – Hertha (H), Hoffenheim (A), Köln (H) – it's not too late to jump on the Silva train.
