06.06.20 CSGO DreamHack/Blast Slate

Draftkings has once again combined DreamHack and Blast into a 4 game slate while FD only cares about the 2 DreamHack games. One of the DH series is severely lopsided so FD will be chalky while on DK there will be an obvious core to pick around. Yesterday went well for us and we hope it pleased you all too. Have a great weekend 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
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
Match Sweep Bonus +5 Pts (minimum of 2 maps played)

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.

ODER is the favorite despite having been swept by this team recently. Their top line players need a better showing ehre to keep this close or reverse course and get a win. Don’t let the odds fool you too hard into stacking these guys, this is a tough matchup.

AVANT just swept this team a few days ago but each map was fairly close. They are in a good spot to win again but a 2-1 series is in the cards. A close series means we have to be careful on either side of this matchup and not look too deep.

Both Blast series today have intriguing and close matchups. Mouz is a minor favorite but this feels like a toss-up. We would prefer playing only 1 guy on either side of a matchup like this, but you do you.

Price disparities are wide on this team and there could be some nice value if they manage to beat mouz. A guy like Jamppi is far too cheap for his potential meanwhile allu is priced a bit above what should be expected. Tough choices to make if targeting ENCE!

There is not much upside here and no reason to target them on DK at all. For FD, you have to have nerves of steel or a disdain for money to go contrarian.

This is the top team to stack and they are priced as such. In their last series against Beyond, 4 players went +11 or better. They are priced pretty fairly for their upside and a few players need to find their way into your lineups and they are basically a must play on FD.

This game has dead even odds as of writing this and that feels right. Fnatic has a far deeper roster in comparison to a top-heavy Vitality. There are some options here but they did lose 2-1 last time against Vitality so be careful.

ZywOo is still under 9k but this is a tougher matchup than he saw yesterday. He is the obvious top pick for this team but he has to perform to a high standard to pay off. It’s hard to trust any of the other losers on this team but there are pockets of potential.
