There may be just one Gameweek gone but many Fantasy Premier League managers have been quick to make use of their chips.
More than half a million managers have resorted to activating a chip as they seek to improve their points totals.
Of these, more than 154,000 managers have played their first Wildcard chip of the season, while a further 144,000+ have played their Bench Boost chip.
The most popular has been the Triple Captain chip, with more than 236,000 using that.
A quick fix is tempting with a Wildcard.
This is especially since managers have seen several 2018 FIFA World Cup stars such as Paul Pogba (£8.1m), Raheem Sterling (£11.0m) and Dele Alli (£9.0m) return earlier to Premier League action than they suspected.
But for managers tempted to use their chips, The Scout offers some factors to consider before pushing the button.
None of the 16 players to record double-digit points returns in Gameweek 1 were forwards.
Callum Wilson (£6.0m) was the top-scoring forward with eight points.
Give them time to find form before reassessing.
Once fully fit, they can play a big part in managers' future plans.
Although Premier League clubs cannot buy new players until January, there is still the possibility of departures.
Players can still be sold to clubs to leagues whose transfer windows are still open, such as in Spain, Germany and France, where they do not close until 31 August.
So should some unexpected sales occur, you may need to restructure.
There will be better opportunities to exploit the chips in Double Gameweeks, when two or more teams face two fixtures in a single Gameweek, doubling the points potential of their players.
These tend to be in the second half of the season and are typically caused by domestic cup postponements.
For example, by using the Wildcard before a Double Gameweek, FPL managers can tailor their squads, signing players with more than one fixture.
This tactic can be extended further by activating the Bench Boost chip in a Double Gameweek.
Bench Boost brings all four substitutes into play, providing the opportunity to field 15 players, each with two fixtures in a single Gameweek.
