5.19.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

We see more familiar faces here than yesterday, but we have a similar scenario with each game being really one-sided. This will be a really chalky day and unless we see an upset then the top teams may have a bunch of ties. G2 is the one team we really see as being at risk against a different look from North, while the  other 2 squads should roll over their opponents. We have to find ways to cram in the chalk and then maybe play with fire for the last roster spot or so for fun. Good luck everyone and game on. 

Draftkings’ scoring follows the chart shown below, with a focus on K/D and clutch plays. Rosters are set with a Captain position who receives 1.5x his points at 1.5x his salary, but beyond that it is positionless. This is important to understand because CS teams follow a composition of different roles such as IGL (In game leader), entry fragger, support, etc. With Draftkings making no distinction between players, it is left to you to decide which roles are most important within this scoring system and to take advantage of that. For several teams for example, their IGL is not often going to score highly as they may be less skilled at the game but are valuable in ways that Draftkings doesn’t record. With that in mind, we will jump into a quick look at the roles of key players, their key stats, and how their perceived performance should fare in accordance with their salary. 

Players
StatisticFantasy Points*Players drafted as Captain earn 1.5x fantasy point values
Kills+1.5 Pts
Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt
1v3 Clutch+2 Pts

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)

Deaths -1.5Deaths -1Rounds Lost -.5
Assists 1.5Assists 1Match Won 10
Headshots .3Headshots .2Team Sweep 10
Sweep Bonus 22.5Sweep Bonus 15

Fanduel has 6 slots for a captain, 4 standard players, and a team. The captain position does not affect a player’s salary like it does on Draftkings. This is particularly advantageous for when you have an inkling that a superstar will put up a large performance but you don’t want to limit your options elsewhere. The team slot will be a lot of fun for those situations where you like a team to win but don’t like the fantasy prospects of any particular players so you can still get some exposure. We figure most users will try to pick the cheapest winning team because a lot of the stats you get points for are hard to predict, but a winning team should definitely fare better.

Our top plays are designed to show the most playable options on each team, factoring in performance and price. The top 2 plays on each team will be in our player pool and the third tier top plays are people we will sprinkle in a bit along with the core group. All of the statistics shown are for the last 3 months to see who has been performing well recently while still keeping a significant sample size. 

Astralis(-909) V Heroic(+509) (8:00 AM EST)

The number one team in the world slaughtered G2 and are now being spoon fed a win by a team that really has no business playing Astralis. As long as these guys don’t goof around, there’s a chance you’ll miss this series if you blink. Dupreeh is back to form and gla1ve has been rolling, making this an almost unbeatable team.

G2 Esports6,700

G2 is the team that is most likely to be upset on this slate and they actually did lose to North a week ago. This squad is a slightly different roster than last time and likely is even better. It’s hard to expect the upset to happen again, but this should be a 3 game series and is closer than the odds suggest. We are hoping for a kennyS rebound here against a less talented roster but he is a risky play, given his recent poor play.

North6,300

Kristou is in here for North and just as Fanduel finally figured out jumpy so they again are a man short. He is a fine player at only 18 years old and should be a bit of a talent boost from jumpy. It remains to be seen how he fits in with the team with limited practice and reps but they should be able to fare okay. This is the underdog to put stock into today over the other 2 and a 3 game series or upset is in the cards.

Team Liquid6,900

This team is cheap on FD relative to the rest of the slate as Liquid is poised to dominate this series against a middling team. They are huge favorites because there is frankly a huge talent disparity here and it would take a collapse for them to drop the series or even a single map really. These guys can be played with confidence.
