DFR Podcast #017: Interview with PlayON $100,000 AFL Super Contest Winner Lion4life
In the newest episode of the Daily Fantasy Rankings Podcast we speak to the big winner from the PlayON $100,000 AFL Super Contest, and the new number one ranked DFS player in the country, Lion4life.
In one of the largest DFS collects in Australian history, Lion4life made a massive play in his team lineups, and it paid off, as he scooped over half of the $100,000 prize pool himself!
Read more about how Lion4life achieved this feat in our $100,000 Super Contest recap article.
In the podcast, Lion4life talks about his background in DFS and how he used some crucial information to help him form the winning Super Contest lineup. The secret to his victory was being able to fade the highest-owned player on the slate in Adealide's Brodie Smith. Lion4life browsed some online footy forums to find some rumours about Smith as a possible late omission. He decided to switch out Smith from his lineups just two hours before lock out, and that proved to be a winning move.
Lion4life explains how he uses his own techniques to build lineups, working around a core group of players, rather than using automated lineup builders, and is looking forward to tackling the upcoming NBA season.
Find out more about how Lion4life won the Super Contest, and how we sweated the games during the day in the full podcast below.
