Yes, only one free transfer per game week. You do have a Wildcard, which when you play it means you can change your whole team if you want without a points deduction. You used to only get one wildcard per season, though I think they changed it so you have two now, unless you don't use the first one by the midway point.
Obviously, the more transfers you make, the larger the points deduction. I think making two transfers will dock 4 points, so it can sometimes be worthwhile if the extra player you want out is injured and you can switch him with someone who will likely make those points back for you.
