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 24.

Lennart Grill, Leverkusen (Goalkeeper, 1m)
When Leverkusen's first-choice goalkeeper, Lukas Hradecky, picked up an injury last month, Niklas Lomb initially filled in for him, but he was dropped and replaced by Lennart Grill for Sunday's 1-2 loss to Freiburg. Even though Grill conceded two goals, he has been singled out for praise by Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz, who should keep faith in the 22-year-old after saying he doesn't want to make a change in goal every week. With Hradecky expected to be out until the end of the month, Grill is likely to stay between the sticks for at least three games.

Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 5.5m)
Last week's 5-1 victory over Schalke 04 marked the end of a very favorable run of fixtures for Stuttgart, who are now set to face Frankfurt, Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund within their next five matches. Nevertheless, with the form he's in, Sosa is still a great option, especially considering his low price.

Danny da Costa, Mainz (Defender, 8.6m)
Playing as a right wing-back, Frankfurt loanee Danny da Costa could be a great differential, with Mainz looking to shake off their disappointing 0-1 defeat to Augsburg against relegation rivals Schalke 04. Unlike Schalke, Mainz have actually looked like a team on the right path – at least prior to their loss to Augsburg – which is why Bo Svensson's troops should have a good chance of returning to winning ways on Friday. If you're looking for a cheaper Mainz defender, Philipp Mwene could give you great value for money at 1.6 million.

Paulo Otavio, Wolfsburg (Defender, 9.7m)
Wolfsburg were on an unbeaten run of eight games without conceding a single goal until they slipped to a 0-2 loss against RB Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. Despite the fact that they're coming off a defeat, investing in Wolfsburg players still makes a lot of sense, especially since they still have some quite favorable fixtures ahead. Otavio is surely an option to consider after proving himself as a very valuable Fantasy asset in 2021. The fact that he has scored at least 10 points per game since Matchday 17 says it all.


Kevin Stöger, Mainz (Midfielder, 7.4m)
After coming on to score two games in a row, Stöger was handed his fourth league start of the season against Augsburg last week. Whether he will keep his starting spot is a bit uncertain, but the good thing is that you will be able to see if he's in the line-up before the transfer window slams shut because Mainz play on Friday.

Milot Rashica, Werder Bremen (Midfielder, 12.2m)
Rashica may still be some way off the form he has showed in the past, but it seems like he's starting to get up to full speed. Playing up front despite being listed as a midfielder in the game, the Kosovo international certainly has differential potential as Werder travel to Köln.

Leon Goretzka, Bayern München (Midfielder, 15.5m)
The German international has worked his way back after contracting coronavirus and looked like a player in top form last week, setting up three goals in Bayern's 5-1 victory over FC Köln.

Karim Onisiwo, Mainz (Striker, 9.5m)
Onisiwo looks nailed on to start up front for Mainz against a Schalke side, who have conceded nine goals in their last two games.

Max Kruse, Union Berlin (Striker, 11.5m)
The former Werder forward is back from injury and celebrated his return to the line-up with a goal from the penalty spot against Hoffenheim last week. With seven goals and five assists to his name in just 11 games this season, Kruse has certainly shown just how decisive he can be for Union.

Alexander Sørloth, RB Leipzig (Striker, 14.3m)
With the return leg of RB Leipzig's Champions League last-16 tie against Liverpool to take place on Wednesday, 'Die Roten Bullen' coach Julian Nagelsmann is likely to make a few alterations to his side for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Freiburg. Sørloth is one of the players that could come into the starting eleven after recently impressing from the bench.
