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 22.

Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 4.8m)
Having already picked up 114 points this season, Sosa offers high value at a very low cost. Most recently, the Croatian wing-back set up his side's only goal against Hertha BSC, picking up 14 points.

Tim Fosu-Mensah, Leverkusen (Defender, 8.6m)
The right-back is starting to find his feet at Leverkusen, having started his side's last four games in all competitions, and should keep his starting spot with Lars Bender still sidelined due to an injury. Although he hasn't exactly been lighting it up from a Fantasy perspective yet, Fosu-Mensah offers plenty of potential as Leverkusen face a struggling Augsburg side, who have lost six of their last seven Bundesliga games.

Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 9.1m)
Currently sitting fourth in the Bundesliga table, Wolfsburg have been a revelation this season - and so has Paulo Otavio. The Brazilian left-back has been a consistent source of points for weeks, helping Wolfsburg to six clean sheets in a row. Especially since 'Die Wölfe' now have a very favorable fixture list ahead, there's no reason why they can't continue their impressive form.

Yannick Gerhardt, Wolfsburg (Midfielder, 7.3m)
Gerhardt's has played a key role in Wolfsburg's impressive run, emerging as a regular starter in attacking midfield. With a price of just 7.3 million, the 26-year-old is a steal.


Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 13.4m)
Hofmann and Gladbach have struggled in recent weeks, but are still seen as huge favorites against Mainz at home, and it should only be a matter of time before Hofmann starts producing the form he showed earlier in the season.

Nadiem Amiri, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 13.6m)
Nadiem Amiri was sorely missed by Bayer Leverkusen while he sat out with coronavirus. Fortunately for 'Die Werkself', the attacking midfielder was able to make his return in last week's 2-2 draw with Mainz, coming on in the second half, and he is likely to be back in the starting eleven against Augsburg on Sunday.

Christopher Nkunku, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 16m)
Nkunku is arguably Leipzig's most in-form attacking player at the moment, having taken a whopping 56 points from his last three appearances.

Sasa Kalajdzic, Stuttgart (Striker, 6m)
After finding the net three times in his last two games, the tall striker will lead the line against a Köln side, who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six games in all competitions.

Marco Reus, Dortmund (Striker, 18m)
For the most part, it has been a year to forget for Marco Reus so far, but the 31-year-old looked solid in mid-week against Sevilla and will look to build on that performance against struggling local rivals Schalke 04. Owned by just 3% of Fantasy Bundesliga managers, he could be a good differential.

Wout Weghorst, Wolfsburg (Striker, 18.8m)
Weghorst has had a very impressive season so far, scoring 19 goals in 27 appearances, and will be difficult to look past as Wolfsburg enter a nice run of fixtures.
