Sun Dream Team tips GW12 – 5 FFGeek contributors show their teams for gameweek 12
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
GW11 – 46pts : Total – 719pts : Overall Rank- 19.5k :
What a very disappointing week , scoring only 46pts and dropping down nearly 12k places in the process ( not what the doctor ordered) , but hey no time to dwell , we dust ourselves down and go again 😀
So a fresh week brings fresh optimism, certainly hoping for a better performance this week.
There’s a strong possibility I’ll be using one or maybe two transfers and will all revolve around the Liverpool/city line ups on Sunday, with Ederson flagged up as an early doubt then a straight swap with Allison is on the cards, Mendy is another one facing the axe but again I will make my final decision upon seeing the team news on Sunday.
Good luck all in GW12 thanks for reading, will be back next week same time , same place .

Lee finished an incredible 79th overall in Sun Dream Team in his first attempt last season
GW10 points 34 total points 690, overall rank 61k
A disappointing week from Man City has resulted in a rank drop to 61k just 12 points from my 5 players,not helped by a -4 for Tomori.
With only 1 game this game week before another international break I think I’m going to keep my 3 November transfers until after the break in case I have any injuries to deal with. With Man City facing Liverpool it wouldn’t surprise me if it was 0.0 or 4.4 so I’m going to wait on the transfers and bring in more Liverpool players for when there fixtures improve.

Game Week 11
Hello once again my fellow fantasy football managers. This week my team gained a total of 54 points despite there being European midweek games. The player scores are in the picture below.
I did the move from Otamendi to Robertson last week as discussed in the previous review. It was good to see Robertson have an immediate impact with a goal coupled with TAA’s star man award in the weekend game vs Villa. Ederson and Tomori only gained negative points.
Mane is showing good consistency this season along with Sterling. Interesting as two must have midfielders clash in an early title decider this weekend as Liverpool host City. Mahrez didn’t play in the league game but started in the champions league but only gained 3 points. Mount had several efforts at goal against Watford but gained a minus point after kicked the ball away in added time. So that was disappointing.
Kane missed the weekend game at Everton through illness. That was a shame as he usually plays well against them. He then picked 3 points in the champions league as his teammates were amongst the goals. Salah not yet showing his best (explosive) form with only 5 points gained from rating and assist in champions league. Star of the week is Tammy Abraham with 15 points despite scoring an own goal vs Ajax. He is now a new entry to the 100 dream team points club along with Aguero.
The team has a total of 699 points and an overall position of 45k. So a fall of 12k places = a red arrow. I used my first monthly transfer on the move from Otamendi to Robertson last week and already used my second November transfer (details below). The team has a value of 53.6m with 0.0m in the bank.
I decided to get rid of Mount for Pulisic. Mason Mount has done well this season but I think Pulisic will give more to this team. Pulisic has a number of strengths to his game: he times his runs well and likes to cut inside from the wide positions to the central areas making himself a big threat to the opposition. He has good dribbling skills and so difficult to take the ball off him and so can win penalties as seen in midweek game against Ajax.
One of Pulisic’s biggest strengths looks to be his finishing (one of Mount’s weaknesses). He recently scored a hat trick away at Burnley with his left, right foot and his head. So he can score goals in many ways and he has that explosive point scoring potential within in his game whereas Mount has been largely consistent. There is a hint of Hazard in Pulisic and at 2.8m could represent a bargain. The only downside is possible rotation with Hudson-Odoi but Pulisic’s form makes him difficult for Lampard to leave out.
I decided to keep my final November transfer. I am still monitoring the Mahrez situation and may keep him for game week 13. Good to see Mahrez’s price rise this morning.
Good luck to me and everyone for game week 12. I am looking forward to this week’s games especially Liverpool vs City. See you next week.
Tom finished an incredible 34th in Sun Dream Team last season
GW10 pts: 73 total points 699 overall rank 45k
So, first off a decent haul for the week with 73 total points. Son, who get sent off against Everton (then had it overturned, did not get the points back though…..) was the star of the week netting a double and picking up MOTM in Serbia. Once again though I was subject to some annoying team rotation with Alderweild, Mane, Robertson, Aguero all not starting their Champions League Fixtures and Aubameyang missing the Europa League draw Arsenal had on Wednesday. Which is really annoying. A major part of picking people in European competition is the extra games they get over their Premier League only counterparts. But that purpose is defeated when they are all left on the bench!
The transfers I made all focused on the shody backline i had been plugging away with since the early months of the season. I have switched up to a 4-3-3 formation and transferred out Mahrez, Zinchenko and Tuanzebe and brought in TAA, Robertson and Jonny. These have all paid dividends already with TAA grabbing a man of the match and having a 13 point game week, Robertson scoring 8 and Jonny thanks to coming on in the 97th minute of Wolves Europa league fixture also gaining 8. So all in all a positive transition for the new boys.
Looking ahead to this weekend there are some brilliant games on. Man City vs Liverpool being the standout but also am very much looking forward to watching Leicster vs Arsenal. I have a feeling it could be a bit of a shootout…
After that comes the boring break which is the international break. I hope all the players get through it unscathed and we are fully fit for the resumption on the 23rd of November. That feels like an eternity away !!!

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
47 points scored and placed 79527 overall.
What a tough season, congratulations to those on over 800 points so far they have really nailed the in form players. Being 170 points behind the leader seems too much already in this game, just got to keep persevering and hope for a run of clean sheets from Liverpool to boost the ranking.
In comes Allison for Ederson this week to make a semi block Liverpool defence. What better time to hope for a clean sheet than a game against City. 4 goals from the out of sorts Kane would help too. So that leaves one transfer left this month, which will be kept back for any injury or suspension.
Best of luck.
