06.09.20 CSGO DreamHack

We have a bunch of fun teams today, including an awesome G2 V NaVi battle. Pricing is a bit all over the place but there are some nice options presenting themselves. There are a lot of solid options in the $7-8k range and making the right choices there will be really important. Good luck everybody 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

Kills+1.5 Pts
Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt

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. 

Astralis(+138) V NiP(-182) (8:00 AM EST)

Astralis is still in flux and harmony still seems far off for them. Prices are absurdly high for a series they should lose and even if it’s kept close, it’s a lot to ask of these guys to pay off salaries like this.

NiP dumpstered Astralis in a best of at Blast and they should be able to lock this done without too much of a struggle. Their pricing is pretty accurate for their upside and they make for solid plays against a team with no identity.

G2 has had a little bit of a break and should be well rested and prepared. They have looked great and should have a solid shot here. Even in a loss, there should be value potential here with so much crap at the bottom of NaVi’s roster.

S1mple and co is facing a tough matchup in G2 and this should be a great series to watch. S1mple is a great play in a matchup like this but it’s tougher to lean on his teammates. There are options if you are all in on NaVi but it’s likely better to temper expectations.

BIG is less talented than FaZe and their map pool looks dicey in comparison. They are likely going to lose but could see a decent performer if it’s kept close. There is a lot of value on DK but tougher on FD.

FaZe is in a good spot here against BIG and their top 3 have been showing good recent form. Their odds are a bit generous and it should be a kind of close series. We’d say that playing 2 of these guys can make sense but maybe don’t stretch for 3.
