Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses may feel they have been left with little to work with following a quiet deadline day, but there are bargains to be had from some lesser name signings.
While the likes of Falcao, Leandro Damiao and David Villa remained with their current clubs, Nacho Monreal, Urby Emanuelson, Luciano Becchio and Christopher Samba could be worth a look.
Spain international Monreal, who is valued at a modest £6m, should go straight into the Gunners' line-up for the visit of Stoke, with Kieron Gibbs out injured and Andres Santos, well, somewhat short of form.
As with most Spanish full-backs, Monreal is more than competent going forward so should be good for a few assists and maybe the odd goal, while Arsenal enjoy a favourable run of fixtures in in the coming weeks, with a visit from the Potters followed by Sunderland (A) and Aston Villa (H).
The acquisition of Emanuelson (£6.2m) looks somewhat less appealing, hardly boasting an impressive record in the goalscoring front, averaging just one a season over the last four campaigns.
Becchio, on the other hand, racked up an impressive 19 goals for Leeds before moving to Norwich.
How well the Argentinian will adapt to life in the Premier League remains to be seen, but he arrives at a good time for the Canaries as they travel to struggling QPR before hosting inconsistent Fulham.
One signing who has proven himself in the top flight is Christopher Samba (5.4m), whose aerial prowess while not only strengthen the Hoops defensively but give them an added threat from set-pieces, netting 14 times during his six seasons at Blackburn.
However, it is Theo Walcott who is the most popular man in the transfer market with Fantasy Football bosses.
The England frontman has scored 11 and set-up nine goals this season despite making just 13 starts, and looks a worthwhile signing at just £7.5m.
His team-mate Olivier Giroud is also starting to look a good acquisition having netted five in his last three games.
Sky Bet rate Arsenal as one of the big favourites to triumph over the weekend along with Manchester United and Everton, who offer more obvious options.
While Robin van Persie is impossible to part with, his strike partner Wayne Rooney could be the man to side with when Fulham host the league leaders.
The England striker is a real purple patch player and certainly has his eye in at the moment, scoring three in two, whilst boasting an impressive record against the Cottagers, netting four in their last four meetings.
For Everton, it is tougher to predict where the goals will come from with Marouane Fellaini without a goal in six league games, while Nikica Jelavic is goalless in eight.
Leighton Baines is now the Toffees' third highest scorer following his midweek brace, but commands a significant fee at £7.1m.
On the injury front, Vincent Kompany will be missing but his central-defensive partner Matija Nastastic looks far more appealing anyway at a meagre £5m, especially with City looking to make it seven successive clean sheets in all competitions when Liverpool visit on Sunday.
Elsewhere, Dimitar Berbatov, David Luiz and Michel Vorm have all been ruled out of action this weekend.
