The registration is now open and the player list is already published on the official FPL website, so you can start seeking to compile the optimum 15-man squad ahead of first gameweek's kick-off.
With a £100million budget to spend and unlimited transfers to consider until Gameweek 1 you can tinker with potential team selections.
Will the game's top ranked player of the past season, Bruno Fernandes (£12.0m), be the first player you pick for your squad?
Or will you back one of the new signings to the Premier League like Emiliano Buendía (£6.5m) or Ibrahima Konaté (£5.5m)?
You can start to ponder these decisions now.

Assessing the opening GameweeksDon't waste time in assessing the fixture list and the opening Gameweeks. While it is tempting to plan a squad for the long haul, building one capable of strong returns over the first month is often the wisest tactic.
Over reliance on unproven newcomers to the Premier League, at the cost of established FPL talent is another common temptation to be avoided.
Pre-season form and fitness should also be monitored. Awareness of those clubs prepared to rest star players, fatigued by a summer of international exertions, is key over the early Gameweeks.
