Wout Weghorst (£6.6m) was unable to justify his position as the top transfer target for the first match of his Double Gameweek 27, with more than 600,000 Fantasy Premier League managers deploying their Free Hit chip.
With highly owned assets from Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea all blanking due to the EFL Cup final on Sunday, playing the Free Hit proved a popular tactic, with Burnley the only side to play twice.
That and Weghorst’s 14-point return in DGW26 led to him being snapped up by nearly one million managers, but the Dutchman was unable to get on the scoresheet for the first of his two GW27 matches, a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace. His backers will be hoping for more joy when Burnley host Leicester City on Tuesday.
Ben Mee (£4.8m) was the second-most popular transfer in, gaining 647,000+ new owners after a 15-point haul against Tottenham Hotspur in midweek. But the Burnley defender also returned just two points.
In total, there were over 2.7m moves for Burnley players for their pair of matches.
Son Heung-min (£10.8m) took third spot, with more than 636,000 managers bringing in the South Korean. They were rewarded as Son found the net from a sublime Harry Kane (£12.2m) assist as Spurs won 4-0 at Leeds United to earn his managers nine points.
Weghorst also featured among the top three captains for DGW27, with more than 676,000 backing him with the armband.
Manchester United pair Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.7m) were the most-popular picks for the armband among players in action this weekend but both failed to deliver in the 0-0 draw at home to Watford.
Weghorst was the No 1 pick among the leading 100 managers in Fantasy, captained by 76 members of this elite group.
Kane and Son completed the top three. Kane scored before assisting Son’s strike, earning him two bonus points and a fourth double-digit haul of the season, with the previous three also away from home.
The three most-sold players were all from Liverpool, who next play in the Premier League when West Ham United are the visitors to Anfield in Double Gameweek 28.
