The Liverpool star entered the Gameweek as the top-scoring Fantasy player, having blanked in only two appearances all season. But that became three as West Brom frustrated the champions in a 1-1 draw.
Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.7m) completed the top three of most-selected captain picks and their combined 1.3million managers also suffered similar frustration as both failed to deliver at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
It was the sixth time this season that Salah, Kane and Son had been the top three captain picks.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) replaced the Spurs pair in the estimation of the leading 100 FPL managers.
But the elite FPL bosses also were left to rue their selections as both blanked on Saturday.
De Bruyne missed a big chance to score in Manchester City's 2-0 victory over Newcastle United, while Calvert-Lewin failed to score or assist for only the third time this season despite Everton winning 1-0 at Sheffield United
Salah was also the most-popular acquisition ahead of Gameweek 15, with Patrick Bamford (£6.4m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) the two next-most popular buys.

A combined 1.3million managers would have been scared to see both make Chelsea's starting line-up on Saturday.
But luckily for those sellers Chilwell and James both blanked as Chelsea suffered a 3-1 defeat at Emirates Stadium.
Callum Wilson (£6.6m) was sold by more than 220,000 as Newcastle began a run of difficult fixtures.
Indeed, that decision immediately looked to be a good one as Wilson was an unused substitute against Man City. Newcastle face Liverpool and Leicester City in GW16-17.
