Sun Dream Team tips – 4 FFGeek contributors show their teams for gameweek 1
Michael was joint winner of Sun Dream Team in 2016/17. He also finished top 300 in 18/19 and top 1k in 2017/18
You can see Michaels original draft and an interview where he talks about his Sun Dream Team strategy
Couple of tweaks to my original draft of last week.
In goal I’ve replaced Patricio with Pope who will benefit from Heaton’s departure and at £1.5m could represent good value.
And up top I’ve plumped for Jamie Vardy over Diogo Jota , Leicester have a decent run of games in the early weeks so Vardy could well be a decent pick .
No guarantees that this will start GW1 as I’m always itching to tweak but it should be pretty close .
Good luck everyone for the season .

Lee finished an incredible 79th overall in Sun Dream Team in his first attempt last season
I have made a few tweaks this week from my original team;
I have got a full team of European players (as long as Wolves make it to the next round) and have taken out the very cheap Dan James, replacing him with Ross Barkley who at £1m more, offers a much bigger goal threat (although he is not guaranteed to start like Dan James).
I have also changed formation to 4.3.3 as I wanted D.Jota in my team to partner Kane and Salah. At £2.5m, D.Jota is excellent value. Sterling and De Bruyne stay in midfield and in defence I have gone for the Liverpool full backs of Robertson and Alexander-Arnold who offer clean sheets,goals and assists.
Zinchenko should hold onto his place for at least the first few weeks and the ever reliable Azpilicueta makes up the back four. Patricio is now in goal as he ticks the European box; I feel Patricio was unlucky not to pick up a few more clean sheets last season.
Good luck to everyone for the new season :)

This is Bryan’s first season at Sun Dream team but he has a fantastic history in TFF finishing 37th last season and 7th in 17/18
Quite happy with this team and have made no changes since the first draft.
There is an injury concern over Leroy Sane (Geek note: now confirmed as injured) so I will come back on Friday to finalise the lineup. Current thoughts would be to replace Sane with a premium defender, possible Walker. This then would still be a top heavy eleven but a little more balanced 4-3-3 formation.
Any changes I will tweet before Liverpool v Norwich. Very best of luck with your selections
Redrum has finished the last 3 seasons in Sun Dream team in 5k, 750th, 250th
Ederson – one of the secure options into the city defence and a top keeper.
Zinchenko – could be the end of injury prone Mendy and this player offers very good clean sheet, ratings and assist potential. At 3.5m seems a good price for a City defender.
Stones – That completes the Man City defensive trio. Not a big fan of Stones myself but Walker and Otamendi positions are unclear with Laporte likely to be first choice but out of my price range and Walker may face competition from future signing Cancelo.
Alexander Arnold – Need a good quality Liverpool defender and this player edges it over his teammate Robertson as he takes set pieces.
Shaw – A good attacking left back at a decent price. Hoping the recruitment of Maguire and Wan Bissaka means the Man Utddefence is a lot tighter than last season.
Sterling – Goals and assists equals points in abundance.
Anderson – A very good first season from this talented Brazilian. With West Ham having good fixtures after their opening game, if Anderson adds consistency to his game he can become a Dream Team favourite.
Trossard – With the Brighton boss promising forward thinking football, this attacking midfielder could provide a direct route to goals. Trossard will want to follow in the footsteps of successful Belgians, Hazard and De Bruyne.
Townsend – With Zaha’s future unclear, he may become Palace’s star player. He has a very good long shot so I expect a few goals and he play in the opening round of the league cup which would be a bonus.
Kane and Salah – both need no introduction.
So a 442 formation with 2m in the bank to add flexibility going forward.
