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 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 20.

Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 8.6m)
The Brazilian left-back has been in excellent form recently, scoring a total of 42 points in his last three games. As another plus, Wolfsburg have a favorable run of fixtures ahead, starting with this week's clash with an Augsburg side, who have lost four of their last five games.

Christopher Trimmel, Union Berlin (Defender, 10.5m)
Like Wolfsburg, Union Berlin now have some great fixtures coming up, and Trimmel is one of their key Fantasy assets, having already scored 122 points from his wing-back position this season.

Nordi Mukiele, RB Leipzig (Defender, 10.8m)
After being given a break from the starting XI in mid-week, Mukiele looks quite certain to come back into RB Leipzig's line-up for their game against a struggling Schalke 04 side. Playing in his usual right wing-back position, the Frenchman racked up a solid 12 points against Leverkusen last week.

Yannick Gerhardt, Wolfsburg (Midfielder, 6.9m)
The 26-year-old seems to have nailed down a starting place in attacking midfield after putting in some impressive performances in recent weeks. Priced at 6.9 million, he offers solid value at a fairly low cost.

Marc Roca, Bayern München (Midfielder, 8.8m)
Although he isn't a high-ceiling player, Roca may be worth considering this week. With a price of just 8.8 million, the Spanish midfielder is a cheap way into Bayern's midfield for their Friday night game against crisis-hit Hertha BSC.

Milot Rashica, Werder Bremen (Midfielder, 12m)
It has been a difficult campaign for Rashica so far, but the Kosovo international is beginning to look like his former self. He made a real difference after coming on at half-time against Schalke last week, setting up Werder's goal, and was rewarded with a starting spot in Tuesday's win over Greuther Fürth in the DFB-Pokal. Rashica is now expected to keep his spot in the line-up against Arminia Bielefeld, playing up front despite being a midfielder in the game.

Dani Olmo, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 16.8m)
Olmo should have plenty of energy after he was given a well-deserved rest from the starting line-up against Bochum in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. The Spaniard has been a consistent source of points this season and could be in for a big game against bottom side Schalke 04.

Taiwo Awoniyi, Union Berlin (Striker, 7.6m)
After scoring five goals in seven Bundesliga games, Awoniyi has been on a barren run in front of goal since Matchday 14. It only seems to be a matter of time before striker will regain his scoring touch, though, and he should have a good chance of getting back on the scoresheet against a Mainz side, who have conceded twice in each of their last three games.

André Silva, Frankfurt (Striker, 18.7m)
One of the most in-form players in the Bundesliga at the moment with a points haul of 62 in his last four Bundesliga games, Silva is arguably a must-have player at the moment.

Thomas Müller, Bayern München (Striker, 21.4m)
You probably already own a Bayern striker in Robert Lewandowski, but there's no reason you can't double up on the Bavarians up front. A consistent part of Bayern's starting eleven this season, Thomas Müller has featured in every game and is only second to 'Lewy' in total points this season.
