5.31.20 CSGO Home Sweet Home Slate

We step away from DreamHack here for a 2 game, DK only slate for the Home Sweet Home tournament. This is not a particularly inviting slate but oh well, it beats having nothing for a day…marginally. If you want further help, sign up for premium today and ask any questions you may have in our premium discord chat! 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

Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)

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.

Heroic is a big favorite but they are likely going to have to play mirage which is forZe’s top map and one they don’t have a lot of experience with. This could make things interesting and this team is not a slam dunk for us. They should still take this series, but don’t expect a cakewalk.

These guys are in a rough spot after a crazy series yesterday that saw several overtimes. They look like they should pick up a map here but an upset is not totally out of the question. This team is not a priority to draft, but make sure you have some shares.

supra5,0001.030.6469.80%1.02

GY is the underdog here but we again don’t see a huge gap here. Sh1ro is one of the top rising talents in CS and their map pool is an intriguing pair for coL. We expect another close series here and don’t think there is a team to really avoid on this slate.

This team has been playing great and is in a nice spot to pick up a win. They have a few players who have been in great recent form and if they continue to display that play, this should be a good series for them.
