In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.


Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 31.

Jannes Horn, FC Köln (Defender, 1.4M)
Horn picked up 11 points in mid-week as FC Köln sensationally beat RB Leipzig, winning three huge points in their bid to avoid relegation. The left-back costs just 1.4 million, and 'The Billy Goats' now have a favorable run of fixtures, starting off with Friday's clash against Augsburg, who have taken just one point in their last three games without scoring.

Pavel Kaderabek, Hoffenheim (Defender, 10.1M)
Kaderabek's Fantasy Bundesliga output hasn't been up to the standards of the past, but the Czech international has stepped up his game in recent weeks. Coming off a 20-point haul against Gladbach in mid-week, Kaderabek will look to finish off the season in style as Hoffenheim approach games against Freiburg, Schalke 04, Arminia Bielefeld and Hertha BSC.

Christian Günter, Freiburg (Defender, 12.4M)
Günter scored a whopping 28 points in his last outing against Schalke 04 on Matchday 29 and should be raring to go after Freiburg's mid-week game against Hertha was postponed.

André Hahn, Augsburg (Midfielder, 5.4M)
After being given a rest against Frankfurt, Hahn is in line to come back into Augsburg's line-up for their Friday night fixture against 17th-placed FC Köln. The 30-year-old is available for just 5.4 million and should play up front.


Valentino Lazaro, Gladbach (Midfielder, 9M)
Lazaro should keep his starting place after getting on the scoresheet in Gladbach's 3-2 defeat against Hoffenheim. Owned by just 1% of Fantasy Bundesliga managers, the winger could be a nice differential as 'Die Fohlen' lock horns with relegation candidates Arminia Bielefeld.

Roland Sallai, Freiburg (Midfielder, 9.3M)
Like Günter, Sallai displayed great form in Freiburg's 4-0 win over Schalke 04 before resting in mid-week.

Leon Goretzka, Bayern München (Midfielder, 16.5M)
Goretzka, who has already scored five goals and made seven assists in 22 Bundesliga games this season, has been tipped to come back into Bayern's starting eleven for their clash with Mainz after recovering from an injury.

Filip Kostic, Eintracht Frankfurt (Midfielder, 20.9M)
Kostic is by far the highest-scoring Fantasy Bundesliga midfielder, having racked up 286 points in total, but still has an ownership percentage of just 14%. With a price of 20.9 million, the Serbian international is expensive, but he's worth the cost, especially considering Frankfurt's favorable fixtures.

Ihlas Bebou, Hoffenheim (Striker, 10.4M)
The 27-year-old striker has been one of Hoffenheim's top performers this season and got on the scoresheet against Gladbach on Matchday 30, taking his goal tally to eight in the league this season. This, combined with Hoffenheim's great fixtures, makes him an intriguing option.

Max Kruse, Union Berlin (Striker, 12.2M)
Union's talismanic striker could be a great differential as Union host a Werder Bremen side, who have lost their last six Bundesliga games.
