5.27.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

This is a day of close matchups and is the best day for fans of CS in recent memory. We have the 2 best players in the world going at it, FaZe V fnatic, and a toss-up matchup of EG and GenG. This looks like a day benefiting fans over bettors and it may be a day to avoid and recharge, to get those stress levels down. Good luck if you try to tame this beat 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

Fanduel Scoring

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. 

NaVi(-169) V Vitality(+129) (8:00 AM EST)

NaVi:

It’s hard carry versus hard carry and only 1 will prevail. This should be great fun to watch if you’re up for it, but it’s not as fun for DFS purposes. These teams have played a bunch with mixed results and the carries are the only people that are easier to trust. Help will have to come from somewhere and getting that guy(s) right is the trick.

ZywOo might be our favorite play of the day and he comes in at a discount over s1mple. He has had more consistent success against NaVi and this team has better recent form. Big Z also has the better supporting cast and if you go with Vitality for the win, stacking here makes a lot more sense than the mess on the other side.

This is the most interesting matchup of the day. FaZe is the favorite but looked awful yesterday while fnatic won out the series in truly impressive fashion. They beat FaZe a month ago when olof was still a thing and we’ll see if they can best this new squad as well.

FaZe won yesterday against Spirit technically but it felt underserved due to technical issues and every player went negative. They are in a tough spot here and maybe a similar situation that will limit fantasy upside?

EG continues to frustrate and disappoint despite their best efforts and stanislaw pretending to be a capable player for a map. This is as good a chance as they’ll have to get back in the win column and they need this win to continue.

GenG looked like total garbage yesterday but they were playing really well prior to that and we are going to chalk it up as an off day. They already bested EG once during the Road to Rio and will be looking to do so again. That series was really tight and we saw autimatic as the only guy able to go positive which is not a great sign for this team, especially coming off a pathetic showing.
