5.25.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

CompLexity blew it and mouz continues to embarrass themselves as yesterday went pretty much according to plan. Today’s slate features a few interesting matchups and new faces for FaZe and GODSENT. Each game has a somewhat wide spread and we shall dive in and see what credence there is for that. Good luck everyone and happy memorial day! 

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.

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. 

fnatic(-250) V Spirit(+185) (8:00 AM EST)

Fnatic has stumbled recently but has a large talent avantage in this series. We haven’t seen them since the 12th but during that time frame, JW was feeling it and his low price here makes him more interesting than the expensive top guys who have floundered.

Chopper has been awful recently even as this team has been rolling over weaker opponents with great team play. They have a fighting chance here against fnatic and even though they are outmatched on paper there is room for them to make it a series.

FaZe Clan6,800

This seems like the most one sided series of the day. Each team has a new player with FaZe finally being able to replace oof-meister from their lineup. He was a major drag on their performance and we shall see how quickly they can gel with the new kid. FaZe swept GOD last time and they should be able to do it again, although the addition of Farlig is a big gain for them.

GOD is on the wrong side of a NiKo led team that swept them last time and the addition of Farlig probably isn’t enough to save them. This is a tough spot for this squad and not a position we envy or want to target for DFS.

This is our favorite spot of the day to see an upset and the odds here really should be tighter than they are. EG lost in their last attempt against C9 in a series that also saw some OT. This should be a great series to target as it should go 3 maps again and we look for the stars on either end to shine.

These guys are far too cheap on DK and should be chalky. They won in a 3 map series with OT last time and that’s a great indicator that this could be juicy for DFS. We wouldn’t play more than 2 guys from this team on a lineup as this matchup should look top-heavy in the box score but they are an intriguing value proposition.
