“Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him For a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime” – probably someone important


DFS is hard-yakka at the best of times. There’s nothing worse than watching your beautiful, bountiful profits dwindle away in the last quarter only for a dirty multi-entering professional to snatch 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, kicking you entirely off the leaderboard altogether, leaving you shaken to the core on a Saturday night out. 


The after-siren adjustments, the late changes, the first-quarter injuries, the role changes, the upswings, the downswings, the weather, f*%k, even the bounce of the oval-shaped ball can send a man over the edge.


It’s just. too. much.


And that’s exactly why we built DraftStuds – a Daily Fantasy community backed by Australia’s biggest winning players where professionals and newcomers alike can talk strategy and console one another in the inevitable dark times on the DFS grind.


“Yeah, sure. But what’s this got to do with the whole fish thing in the first sentence?” 

We thought you’d never ask. 


The DraftStuds community was built to give subscribers the best chance to succeed in AFL contests on Draftstars. And while exclusive Draftstars tips and cutting-edge DFS tools are certainly important, we understand they only account for one piece of the puzzle. We rather focus on shedding light on the thought processes behind each strategy and the core DFS concepts that underpin them, in the hope that our members can enjoy DFS as much as we do!


Alex ‘Tbetta9’ Trombetta, AKA ‘The Grandaddy of Fantasy’, has been around the Aussie fantasy scene since a young Dane Swan was +6’ing his way into official pig status. Previously gaining traction in the fantasy community for his content at DreamTeamTalk, Tbetta made the transition from AFL Fantasy to AFL DFS and never looked back. Not only has the man shown year-on-year profit increases, he’s lined the pockets of his ‘Bible’ readers in the process. As a result, the Tbetta Bible has been dubbed the ‘holy grail’ of Daily Fantasy information and is the go-to document for all serious DFS’ers. 

If you haven’t seen the ‘chriseddy999’ username topping Draftstars and Moneyball leaderboards, you simply haven’t been around long enough. A genuine savant across various gaming lobbies, Chris ‘floppynuts09’ Edwards made a name for himself in the online poker scene at a young age, becoming one of the very best heads-up cash game players in the world. Unfortunately for us, online poker was outlawed on Australian soil in 2017, meaning ‘Flop’ turned his attention to betting on AFL and Daily Fantasy Sports in 2017. A shrewd decision indeed, judging by the amount of leaderboards the man frequents.

 Jason ‘Broady4_’ Broadbridge’s story is one to be admired. The Prince of Perth, or the King of AFL, began his Daily Fantasy journey like the rest of us – at the small stakes Draftstars contests. But like a phoenix from the ashes, Broady flew from from the $2 contests, soaring right into the biggest contests on the Draftstars platform. Gifted with a strong grasp on theoretical DFS concepts and specialised AFL knowledge, Broady has finished among the top 3 profiteers in 3 successive seasons, becoming one of the most feared DFS men in Australia. Accessing his player picks each slate is plainly unfair on the field, but that’s exactly what the man delivers in his game plans.
