5.24.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

A couple sweeps yesterday and a disappointing collapse from mouz brings us to today’s slate with a bunch of frankly uninteresting matchups. There are some close games between trash teams and then a series that FURIA should dominate. FURIA will be mega chalk and should be safe to target for cash games so it’s a little bit of a different slate than we’ve had for a few days. Good luck to 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

Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt

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.

This team has been looking good but they are playing with fire here in a series that shows some high prices despite the impending doom. It’s hard to bet against the capital Ns but they have their work cut out for them here.

These guys dominated yesterday and haven’t lost a map since the 13th. That’s right, a map. They have 6 sweeps in a row and are playing a BIG team they beat 2-1 a few days before that streak began. This team is firing on all cylinders and we have great confidence in them here.

They did it. They managed to collapse again and break my heart. This is a top 5 team in the entire world and they can’t seem to beat lower level teams or show any modicum of consistency. Ropz is 8600 and we trust him as much as we trust Boombl4 around an all you can eat buffet so there’s no way we can possibly vouch for him here in a spot that any reasonable amount of deductive reasoning would otherwise suggest is a great opportunity. Something is not right with this team and we have to wait and see if a roster change or something is coming to right the ship.

You know what sucks about this matchup against a sucky mouz team? MAD also sucks. You’re probably catching onto the enthusiasm that’s oozing out of this writeup but this really is an unfortunate series of teams that don’t look so great. If these guys rebound and win, they’re going to need much better performances than they’ve been giving.

These guys are expensive yet still somehow seem too cheap. They have dominated a few of the top teams in the world and Chaos shouldn’t stand a chance. Weirder things have happened but this is a team you can be confident in. Everybody here is in play.

FURIA is playing like they’re the team to beat in NA and this is the one team on the slate we are avoiding entirely. Even if they manage a map or a win, it would be a grind and upside is tough to see.
