ProfessorM's Bargains and Busts Week 4

It's time for another edition of the Bargains and Busts. Just as a reminder (and for those who've just discovered them), bargains are those players who got the best return for the money, while busts are those who cost you the most for negative returns. Bargains are simply points/£, while busts, since they are negative, are points*£/10. I changed the bust formula this week because it seemed the negative scores were a bit too high. Someone suggested a different calculation of points - cost which I may do later, but not for now.

Bargains

Here are the week's top 10 bargains. Livermore makes his second top 10, while Ramsey is in the top 25 for the second week. Ben Arfa was 12th this week after going 4th last week.

Here are the average points/£ over the season so far. While some of these may not still be bargains because of price rises, and some had one really good week, they would have been some of your best choices overall.

Finally, we have our average busts across the first four weeks. O'Shea leads the way with his horrid week 3 returns, and despite a better week 4, van Persie's poor showings in weeks 2 and 3 are keeping him in the bottom 10.
