The transfer window is finally shut but the upcoming weeks will be crucial for Sky Sports Fantasy Football managers as they try and integrate the Premier League's new stars.
With the majority of players unavailable for this weekend's action, you are better plotting any potential moves carefully, and waiting until the international break to ensure injuries don not ruin your transfers.
Champions Manchester City were the main protagonists on deadline day, bringing in five players to bolster as squad that saw Nigel de Jong, Stefan Savic, Roque Santa Cruz and Dedryck Boyata depart.
Defender Maicon came in from Inter Milan and is available for £6 million, while former Swansea winger Scott Sinclair (£7m) moved to Eastlands along with Benfica midfielder Javi Garcia (£5.7m), Matija Nastasic (£5m) and reserve keeper Wright.
Sinclair's replacement at the Liberty Stadium could be Pablo Hernandez, who arrived from Valencia and can be purchased for £6.5m.
QPR added to their mammoth summer shopping spree with the signing of Marseille man Stephane Mbia (£5.5m) late on, as well as keeper Julio Cesar and Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero who could be worth a look.
Stoke were another busy side on August 31 and brought in Maurice Edu from Rangers who will set you back £5m, Blackburn star Steven N'Zonzi £5m and Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam.
Tottenham were also busy and although main signing Clint Dempsey is already in the game, Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be available for £5.7m.
You would imagine he will be Spurs' first choice stopper, but with Brad Friedel having played over 300 consecutive league games, it may be worth seeing what Andres Villas-Boas decides before taking the plunge.
