5.29.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

Dreamhack has been fun so far with crazy upsets, roster changes, and constant action each day and we have it all again ahead of us. We see a few teams to target, a few to shy away from, and a little bit of in between question marks. This looks like a fun day for DFS so good luck, lets get it, 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

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. 

Vitality(-127) V ENCE(-103) (8:00 AM EST)

This is not a great matchup for this team and we are concerned about their ability to handle a team with depth given that ⅘ of this roster sucks. This seems like a spot to fade the mighty ZywOo.

ENCE surprised a lot of us yesterday and they have NaVi light here in front of them. They beat them a few days ago without much protest and should have no issues doing it again. This is a fun team to stack here.

NaVi was surprisingly railed by ENCE yesterday but NiP has far from a similar team dynamic to dfo the same here. This should be a good rebound spot and we saw s1mple do great yesterday despite the loss. Look for him to bring about a rebound today.

These guys are in a rough spot and NaVi is a similar team to Vitality and that looks like a tough situation once again. This is our least favorite team on the slate to target but hey, if ENCE pulled it off yesterday then why not NiP?

Evil Geniuses(-105) V 100 Thieves(-123) (3:10 PM EST)

Evil Geniuses6,700

EG looks awful while 100 Thieves is trending up and that’s why these odds are so close even though you may be thinking that EG is better on paper. This team feels like mouz in that they have the roster to get it done every game, but they should really be avoided for the time being with them not currently able to get the results they want.

100T has a new coach and it so far appears to be paying massive dividends. Their rotations and play calling look so improved over the most recent series, allowing for the individual talent to shine through productive team play. This is great news for them, but not for EG as they are catching Brehze and co at a really down period for them.
