The start of the campaign saw Town claim eight wins and a draw from the first 11 league encounters as well as heralding the club's most successful start to a season after going unbeaten in their first six.
There may have been a dip in form between October and November but maximum points this week against Bristol City, Burton Albion and the Canaries has seen the club return to winning ways and continue to defy the odds.
And according to German-based football site Transfermarkt, Huddersfield Town have no right to be mixing it at the top of the table considering the value of the squad at their disposal compared with their Championship rivals.
The latest data released on December 15 estimates David Wagner's squad at £16.11 million based on research considering player performances, length of contract as well as transfer rumours.
The figure sees Huddersfield Town sit 19th overall, between Ipswich Town and Preston North End.
The rest of the top six positions are comprised of Derby County, Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday.
At the bottom are Rotherham United (£11.86m), Burton Albion (£7.57m) and Barnsley FC (£6.65m).
David Wagner's squad are also one of the smallest in the league as well with just 24 players at the Head Coach's disposal compared with Sheffield Wednesday with the most (31) followed by Wolverhampton Wanderers (30).
