Australian DFS Weekend Results - 16th July 2019
There were some absolute cracking AFL matches over the weekend, highlighted by the Magpies upsetting the Eagles by one point on Friday night. Here, we take a look at the major DFS wins from that slate, as well as the Saturday and Sunday slates.
Moneyball kicked off AFL Round 17 with their $40,000 Eagles vs Magpies Special. It attracted 2,600 players and proved to be a really tight contest, much like the match itself. Taking home the chocolates with a score of 804 was itsbaker. He was the only player to crack 800 and collected $4,000 for his efforts. Brodie Mihocek (120) and Jarrod Cameron (101) were his standout performers on the night at low cost. Finishing in second place and collecting $1,850 was DaDestroyer, while third place and $1,150 went to bigpuffing.
Moneyball went big for AFL Saturday with their $50,000 contest for the five-game slate. 3,592 entries made it their most supported contest for the weekend. Dominating the slate was myfootyboots with four of the top 10 places (including first), resulting in over $7,000 prize money. Another prominent player was chriseddy999, who finished with eight of the top 20 teams to collect over $3,000. Broady4 also chimed in with $2,250 collect for his second placed finish.
The three-game slate on Sunday was well supported by Moneyball with another $40,000 contest. There were over 2,400 entries in what was an injury-riddled slate. Stephen Coniglio burned plenty of teams with his first quarter knee injury, as did Toby McLean’s hamstring. If you were any chance of a collect on Sunday, you needed to have faded those two popular picks and added Josh Dunkley to your team. Dunkley went HUGE with 189 fantasy points thanks to his 39 touches, 15 tackles and two goals. Rwhelan09 read this slate the best with his first and second placed teams earning him just shy of $6,000. Gaveliott1975 was the other podium finisher, collecting $1,150 for third.
The biggest contest for AFL Round 17 belonged to Draftstars with their $100,000 Eagles v Magpies on Friday night. The top 1,450 entries collected some money here, but it was hawkmagic17 who took home the biggest slice of the pie with his 871 points earning him first place and $9,948! Second place and $4,974 was awarded to Jclark16, while third place and $2,487 went to carlninness.
Draftstars held more big contests for the Saturday and Sunday slates. Their $60,000 Saturday contest was won by lion4life, which sent $6,700 his way. Second place ended up being a three-way tie with lion4life, dlockley and fantasy_boss, all winning $2,124.The $50,000 Sunday contest was won by Bencov ($4,960), while HandsomeT7 ($3,720) came second and Tbetta ($2,232) came in third.

It was won by 4kemba for a $1,182 collect. Other Podium places belonged to mancity20 ($788) and jaeso1991 ($568), who were second and third, respectively.
