The new campaign may be weeks away but the season is about to begin for millions of Fantasy Premier League managers across the world.
Planning can begin from 09:00 BST on Thursday, when the 380 fixtures for 2018/19 are released on premierleague.com.
Gameweek 1 is often the most significant weekend of a campaign for players of FPL.
Why? Because the opening weekend can set the tone for the season.
The first Matchweek provides an early hint of which players you need in your squad.
Mohamed Salah was a perfect example.
In the opening Gameweek of 2017/18, he showed the form that would eventually lead to an FPL single-season record points-haul of 303.
By Gameweek 6, Salah’s ownership had doubled after he returned three double-figure scores and 34 points in his first five appearances.
Finding such form players and getting ahead of the curve can make all the difference to a Fantasy season.
Two of the three top-scoring forwards of 2017/18 were also quick off the mark.
Roberto Firmino showed that being reclassified would not dent his FPL prospects.
The Brazilian scored 180 points as a midfielder in 2016/17.
But he matched Salah's goal and assist for Liverpool on Matchweek 1 and went on to score 181 points.
Gameweek 1 can also bring overlooked players to the attention of FPL managers.
Priced at £4.5m, the centre-back was the top scoring-player of the opening Gameweek, gaining 15 points in a 1-0 home win.
By the end of the season, he was the fourth most-bought defender with nearly two million transfers in.
Seven teams scored three or more goals in Gameweek 1 last season. Fantasy managers must be prepared to react quickly should the forthcoming campaign follow suit.
It may be a long way off, but making plans now can make all the difference.
The fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier League season are released at 09:00 BST, Thursday 14 June.
