06.04.20 CSGO Blast Slate

These best of 1s are horrid but they are dominating the DFS landscape on DK at the moment and we can almost see the light from these being over. We wouldn’t touch these contests with a 39.5 foot pole but for all you out there that enjoy these contests for whatever reason, let’s get to it!

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
1v3 Clutch+2 Pts
1v4 Clutch+3 Pts
1v5 Clutch+5 Pts
Quad Kill+3 Pts
Ace+5 Pts
Rounds Not Played Bonus +0.5 Pts per round not played

Fanduel Scoring

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. 

MAD Lions V mousesports (9:30 AM EST)

MAD:

acoR5,6001.10.6872.00%1.05

MAD swept muz in their last try and they should be able to do well again. Their prices are all far too lwo here and if they have a repeat performance and beat mouz, the top lineups should have at least 1 or 2 MAD players. You have to really love mouz to fade these guys.

karrigan5,2000.870.5763.10%0.9

It’s too risky to write off this team on the early slate but they are certainly not the favorite against MAD. They should be viewed as a contrarian play and being priced higher than the MAD guys is certainly perplexing. There is a chance for ropz to have a solid score even in a loss but the rest of the team is a lot harder to play.

The most talented player in the tournament against the worst team involved? Yea, lock that in. They finally beat Astralis after tying the previous 2 Blast matches and they should notch their second W here.

This is a tight matchup and kind of a toss-up. We prefer fnatic but this could be close, leaving value at the top end. We wouldn’t look past the top 2 guys or so and wouldn’t really roster multiple guys.

Golden of all people has seemingly enjoyed these best of 1s. He has been playing much better of late and another win here could see him show up as a great value option. The big boys are a pain to play given the variability in their performances that is exacerbated by this format but we have to pick somebody to pair with Golden unless you want to wing it with him alone.

Chaos is in trouble in this matchup and lost a 2-1 series to FURIA recently. Map selection may play a large role here but in any case, they need a flawless execution to have a chance in this matchup.

The possible best team in NA has a few players firing on all cylinders and the only reason to hesitate here is their prices. We can see paying for a guy here but fitting two of them is a large gamble.

This should be fun but 100T has the advantage. They have swept Cloud9 in their last 2 chances and they are priced way under their potential for some reason. A pair of guys from this team is affordable and has great upside.

You have to really buy-in to the upset narrative here to justify paying these prices. Even if they win, playing multiple guys here seems like a really risky option in a series that seems just out of reach.

This is the toughest team on the late slate to find any positives to point out and they are only a contrarian play.

Why are these guys all under $8k against an opponent like this? There is a lot of stacking potential here and at least running a combo of them makes a lot of sense.
