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 a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 26.

Philipp Mwene, Mainz (Defender, 2.2M)
Mwene has provided great value for Fantasy owners in recent weeks, picking up a total of 26 points in his last two games. This weekend's match-up with Hoffenheim might not be the easiest for Mainz, but looking further ahead, they have some great fixtures on the horizon.

Nico Schulz, Dortmund (Defender, 6.3M)
With Raphael Guerreiro still sidelined, Schulz should get another run out at left-back against FC Köln. Costing just 6.3m, the 27-year-old is a fairly cheap way into the BVB defence.

Ramy Bensebaini, Gladbach (Defender, 12.1M)
Arguably one of the Bundesliga defenders with the highest ceiling when he's in form, Bensebaini could be a real difference-maker this week as Gladbach look to end their winless streak against Schalke 04, who are in an even bigger slump. The 25-year-old left-back is a slight doubt, but is projected to play.

Rolland Sallai, Freiburg (Midfielder, 8.3M)
It has been a bit of a breakout season for Sallai, who has racked up five goals and four assists in 21 games this campaign. Freiburg haven't been at their best lately, but since they now have some quite favorable fixtures ahead, tapping into Christian Streich's troops might be a good idea.

Florian Wirtz, Leverkusen (Midfielder, 8.4M)
Having recovered from COVID-19 and fought his way back to fitness, Wirtz should come back into the Leverkusen line-up for their clash with Hertha. Leverkusen are in poor form, but so are Hertha, and Wirtz could play a key role to help his side to an important away win.

Thorgan Hazard, Dortmund (Midfielder, 12.5M)
Owned by just 3 percent of Fantasy Bundesliga managers, the Belgian winger could be a great differential as BVB lock horns with a Köln side, who have taken just one point from their last five games.

Lars Stindl, Gladbach (Midfielder, 15.8M)
Stindl will be hoping to bounce back from his horrific penalty miss last week as Gladbach take on rock-bottom side Schalke 04. Having already scored 13 goals and made 12 assists in 36 games in all competitions this season, the 32-year-old could be in for a big day against 'The Royal Blues'.

Leon Goretzka, FC Bayern (Midfielder, 16.3M)
The German international is in great form, having picked up a total of 53 points in his last three games.

Ermedin Demirovic, Freiburg (Striker, 7.8M)
Demirovic has impressed in his first Bundesliga season with four goals and seven assists to his name so far. As mentioned further above, Freiburg are looking at a nice run of fixtures, so now might be a good time to bring in the 22-year-old striker, who is widely projected to start.

Alexander Sørloth, RB Leipzig (Striker, 14.7M)
Two goals and two assists in his last three Bundesliga appearances suggests Sørloth is finally finding his feet in Germany. If the Norwegian international starts against Bielefeld on Friday evening, he's certainly an intriguing pick for Matchday 26.
