5.22.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

Yesterday was a fun day of CS with great matchups and fun players going. Today pretty much just sucks and we have no interest in watching any of these series. It’s actually an interesting slate for DFS purposes and there are a lot of interesting plays and no teams that really feel like a “must play” so it’s a great day for you GPPers out there but one we would not recommend playing cash for. Good luck 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
1v4 Clutch+3 Pts
1v5 Clutch+5 Pts
Quad Kill+3 Pts
Ace+5 Pts
Rounds Not Played Bonus +0.5 Pts per round not played
Match Sweep Bonus +5 Pts (minimum of 2 maps played)

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. 

mousesports(-278) V compLexity(+203) (8:00 AM EST)

karrigan5,2000.90.5864.20%0.92

Mouz may be the second biggest favorite of the day but compLexity shouldn’t be a pushover here. CoL has been on a tear recently and their map pool aligns nicely with mouz to push the envelope here and we feel this has the makings of a 3 map set. Mouz should come out on top but this doesn’t feel like a scenario to stack too many of these guys in your lineups, the top scorers here should be thin at the top.

CompLexity has been on a tear, albeit against competition that is a tier below where mouz is. This is a great opportunity for them to step it up against a better opponent but it’s a stiff ask. A few of these guys have been in good form individually speaking and if they keep their groove here they are a very intriguing contrarian combo.

MAD Lions(-185) V BIG(+141) (11:30 AM EST)

MAD Lions6,400

These guys haven’t played an official match since April 19th and it’s anybody’s guess if they will look out of sorts. They are more talented than their opponent here but their lack of recent form and map pool make this an uneasy team to be super confident in. We will likely see individual talent overmatch the opponent in this one and as long as they keep their rotations and comms running nicely, they should be able to take this series but maybe in 3 maps.

This is the one team of all of the games on this slate that we really have in interest in rostering. Win or lose, these guys are not particularly interesting and their high prices are a turnoff. Because we said that, they’ll probably roll over MAD but in all seriousness this is a team to limit exposure to.

MIBR(-303) V Chaos(+219) (3:10 PM EST)

This team continues to disappoint and crumble against teams that they really should be beating, on paper at least. This Chaos team has dealt with Liquid with little issue a few times recently and MIBR is a similar team. Thankfully it seems that kNgV-’s price has been fixed to properly reflect his upside. It’s a tough mental block to pay these prices for a team that always seems to shit the bed but the upside here is likely the highest anywhere.

This is not a great series to be targeting this team and even if they hang around, there likely won’t be much DFS success as we saw recently against Liquid.
