There was big contrast for the millions of Fantasy Premier League managers who brought in Callum Wilson (£7.5m) or Miguel Almiron (£5.7m) for Gameweek 15.
Wilson was the No 1 target, transferred in by +1.2million managers after producing a career-high 19 points in Gameweek 14, while Almiron was the second-most transferred-in player following 42 points in the 30 days ahead of the deadline.
But while Almiron extended his fine form with a goal in Newcastle United's 4-1 win at Southampton, Wilson returned only one point and was subbed off at half-time.

The third-most in-demand player, Leandro Trossard (£7.0m), produced an attacking return for the third successive match to repay the faith of his 858,000+ new owners.
The Belgian provided an assist for Adam Lallana (£4.9m) as Brighton & Hove Albion beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2.
More than 5.2m managers breathed a sigh of relief as Erling Haaland (£12.1m) emerged from the subtitutes' bench to score his 18th goal of the season in Manchester City's 2-1 win over Fulham.
The Norwegian failed to recover from a knock to make the starting XI but, nonetheless, extended his run of producing an attacking return in every Premier League home match.
Haaland was booked for his celebration but received a bonus point to return five points.
His team-mate Kevin De Bruyne (£12.5m) was the second-most captained player, handed the armband by over 1.2m people.
De Bruyne rewarded their faith with an assist and also claimed two bonus points for a seven-point tally.
The Belgian has blanked in only one of his last 14 starts against promoted sides, amassing 135 points across those encounters.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) took third spot in the captaincy stakes.
Salah repaid the faith shown in him with two goals and a 15-point haul as Liverpool won 2-1 for their first away success of the season.

Joining Toney among the most-sold players were Phil Foden (£8.4m) and Wilfried Zaha (£7.5m).
After starting Man City's first 10 matches, Foden has now been benched for their last three Premier League contests.
He has produced one-point scores on each of those occasions, justifying the decision of more than 454,000 to sell him.
After getting just one goal across a run of four favourable fixtures, 418,000+ parted company with Zaha.
That decision came back to bite his sellers as Zaha scored and got an assist in Crystal Palace's 2-1 win at West Ham United.
