06.23.20 CSGO Summit EU

We jump from one extreme to the next with only two games today, with both looking lopsided. This should be a very chalky slate which means that 1 weird pick you decide to go with could make the difference. We will all be pleased when these crappy teams aren’t included in DFS anymore and only the top level matchups are given attention. Good luck to you all 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.

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.

Fnatic is the big favorite but their loss to Heroic last night reminds us that anything is possible in online CS. Do not treat these guys as an obvious win as they have a tendency to absolutely crumble against opponents. Their map pool looks solid and they’ll be chalky as the big favorite.

This team shocked MAD Lions before being dropped by FATE yesterday and that second series was really close. They look great and are a solid team to punt on for the upset on a small slate. This may be where GPPs are won if they pull it off.

C0ntact has been off and on and was swept by compLexity in their last opportunity. These guys are way too expensive for the nature of this matchup and it’s hard to play them when facing a daunting opponent. This should be the last team to consider on the slate.

CompLexity has looked formidable recently and is our favorite team on the slate to target. Their top 4 players have all looked solid recently and played well against them last time as well. K0nfig is absurdly cheap for his upside and will be a favorite on the slate but don’t sleep on the next 2 guys either.
