06.21.20 CSGO BLAST

Since we only have a 2 gamer, we’ll throw some premium notes in the discord rather than taking the time to put together a separate article. This 2 gamer is a lot of fun, with two teams in positions to succeed and some one offs elsewhere to fill in the gaps. Salary shouldn’t be much of an issue with value around so good luck, have fun, 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.

Fanduel Scoring

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. 

Vitality(-104) V FaZe(-125) (10:30 AM EST)

Vit:

misutaaa5,4000.970.6171.00%0.9

ZywOo needs a big showing here for this team to do anything as we don’t know if shox’s recent form will show up here or not. This is a risky team to buy into and should be a one off target at most.

FaZe swept Vitality 2 days ago and it wasn’t even really close. ZywOo was held in check and that’s difficult to expect again but it’s possible. These guys should be safe to target and even a ZywOo resurgence shouldn’t be enough to sink them.

MiBR(-122) V Evil Geniuses(-106) (6:30 PM EST) 

MiBR:

trk4,80010.6273.80%0.85

MiBR feels like a bigger favorite than the odds suggest, having beaten them twice in the past week or so. Trk is absurdly cheap for how he has been playing for them and against EG in particular and he’s a phenomenal value option. This team has other bright spots and are a great team to target.

Even in beating FURIA yesterday these guys didn’t score well for fantasy. They face an uphill battle here to contribute to your lineups and this is the team to fade of any on the slate. Win or lose, potential isn’t exciting.
