The midfielder converted a late penalty to score for a fifth consecutive match and reward the 638,000+ managers who transferred him in for Gameweek 32.
He has 13 attacking returns in 10 appearances since joining West Ham on loan, scoring nine goals and assisting four.
Lingard is currently the most-bought player ahead of Friday's 18:30 BST Gameweek 33 deadline, already earning another 30,000+ transfers in.
That has taken his ownership to 29.8 per cent and made him the fourth most-popular midfielder in Fantasy, overtaking Ilkay Gundogan (£5.8m) and only narrowly behind Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).
Lingard's backers will be relieved after West Ham manager David Moyes said he believes Lingard's late withdrawal on Saturday was only because of cramp.
Lingard's average of 8.9 points per match is the best in FPL this season and more than double that of any other West Ham player.
But some of his team-mates are also in eye-catching form.
Jarrod Bowen (£6.0m) set up Issa Diop's (£4.3m) goal on Saturday and has now amassed 31 points over the last four Gameweeks.

An injury to Michail Antonio (£6.5m) has boosted his attacking threat, with Bowen playing in a front two alongside Lingard.
Right-back Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) has provided an assist in each of the last three Gameweeks.
His total of seven assists ranks third among defenders this term.
Newcastle will assess Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m) after he was substituted with an ankle knock.
The Frenchman followed up his double-digit haul in Gameweek 31 by claiming an FPL assist for his side’s first goal on Saturday.
He now has six attacking returns in his last seven appearances.
Adama Traore (£6.0m) was directly involved in a goal for the third match running, assisting the winner scored by Willian Jose (£6.8m).
And Wolves' upcoming matches continue to look promising for their key players at both ends of the pitch.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next three matches score no more than three.
