06.11.20 CSGO DreamHack

As DreamHack wraps up we are left with the top performers on this slate and prices seem high. There seems to be a bit more talent disparity than the past few days which makes things more clear but fitting everyone in is tough. We are having big storms here and are about to lose power. I’m happy to help in the premium discord from my phone until it dies, but please don’t expect a premium article tonight! 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

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

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. 

NaVi(-192) V MAD Lions(+146) (8:00 AM EST)

S1mple is over $10k or $12k depending on which site you play and that’s a pretty tough ask of anyone. It’s only a 3 gamer so you may have to go that way if you truly believe in him but he’ll have to go off here to be worth it.

MAD has played well but NaVi is a top tier team and looks like a big challenge for them.

FaZe Clan6,700

FaZe beat NiP 2-1 in their last try but their recent form leaves a lot to be desired. NiKo really needs to have a more consistent performance here for them to win and coldzera’s recent form and prior performance against NiP is encouraging at his low price.

Plopski has been leading this team recently and did well against FaZe in his last try. The other guys have been much more inconsistent recently and are more of a gamble, especially against a team like FaZe. If they keep it close again there may be value after Plopski but it’s risky.

FURIA(-167) V 100 Thieves(+127) (3:30 PM EST)

This is the upper bracket final and FURIA is in a good spot to win this. They are the better team and have a nice matchup for the map pool. These guys are expensive but that’s apt for the spot they are in. ArT has looked great recently and could be that value guy to get you over the top.

Liazz has been in great form, seemingly out of nowhere and is super cheap. This team is tough to target on this slate against FUR and should only be picked as contrarian plays. They are cheap and could help pay off if they upset, but that’s a big IF.
