"With power comes responsibility" was always the motto of that great American philosopher Peter Parker. And even if I’m not as powerful as Spiderman (believe me, I’ve tried), I did feel like a superhero last week. All three players I recommended to you in my previous article ended up scoring on Matchday 2. Joel Pohjanpalo even notched a hat-trick!

About Flo: From shoe sizes to the number of goals scored in training, Official Fantasy Bundesliga Scout Florian knows everything there is to know about every single member of the Bundesliga's all-star cast. He claims to have discovered Fritz Walter and Franz Beckenbauer, and now he wants to share his talent-spotting prowess with you.

By the way, that’s why I have now left James trailing in my wake in the table. But we don’t want to dwell on that…for too long anyway. This week, I’m not going to exhaust my super-powers and won’t be making any predictions for Matchday 3. Instead, I’m going to reveal the players who cost less than four million but are still first-team regulars at their clubs. That’s also nice isn’t it?


Benno Schmitz (RB Leipzig, 2m)

After Lukas Klostermann suffered a cruciate ligament tear, Benno Schmitz will be given his chance in the Bundesliga. He’s probably the biggest bargain available in Official Fantasy Bundesliga. Sign him up now!

Chance of making the starting line-up on MD3: 95 percent

Fabian Holland (Darmstadt 98, 3,9m)

Fabian Holland is the cheapest player to have played every minute so far. He’s picked up eight points so far but faces a a stiff challenge from Borussia Dortmund in the next match. So maybe you should wait until next week to sign him.

Chance of making the starting line-up on MD3: 99 percent

Pascal Stenzel (SC Freiburg, 1,9m)

The right-back sat out the opening game of the season, but completed the full 90 minutes against Borussia Mönchengladbach to pick up six points in the process. As one of the promotion heroes, he’s fought to reclaim his place and is the cheapest first-team regular in the Official Fantasy Bundesliga.

Watch: The top players available for less than 10 million.


Onur Bulut (SC Freiburg, 4m)

The attacking-midfielder has started one match so far and was brought on as a sub in the other. Over the course of his 114 minutes, he’s collected eight points. Bulut and Freiburg are playing on Friday night against 1. FC Köln, which means that you can relegate him to the bench on Saturday if he fails to score impressively.

Chance of making the starting line-up on MD3: 40 percent

Mario Vrancic (Darmstadt 98, 2,9m)

One appearance over 90 minutes and one on the sidelines – Vrancic might not be guaranteed a place but will get game-time in the long run. Whether that happens in Dortmund on Saturday remains to be seen, so my advice would be to put him on the shortlist and observe his development.

Ante Rebic (Eintracht Frankfurt, 3,8m)

Ante Rebic has not played a minute so far this season, but still makes it onto my list. That may seem strange, but there aren’t too many alternatives up front at the moment. Rebic has recovered from glandular fever and is pressing his claim for a starting berth. How the loanee from Fiorentina performs is difficult to judge.

Chance of making the starting line-up on MD3: 75 percent

Sign Rebic for your Official Fantasy Bundesliga team

I hope you can find something you need among those options. Especially with the midweek fixtures coming up and the clubs certain to rotate, you should keep strength-in-depth in mind. This bargain six-pack should help. But remember to be vigilant as you eye a bargain.
