06.26.20 CSGO Summit

We are back to a slate full of more lopsided matchups and some strange pricing decisions from DK. There are a bunch of great captain options today so we should be able to see really high scoring lineups with no need for value plays at all really. This is a slate to shoot for the moon with your guys and could be interesting. 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
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

Fanduel Scoring

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. 

x6tence(+198) V ENCE(-270) (12:00 PM EST)

Queenix6,4000.940.5869.70%0.8

These guys haven’t played much recently and we don’t have much to go on. There isn’t much of a reason to target this team at all, just move along.

EZ 4 ENCE? X6tence is not a good team and refrezh’s pricing is nothing but a joke by a rogue DK employee. The map pool looks a bit weird here so we could see strange things happen but it would take a collapse for ENCE to lose to a team like this.

Heretics(+287) V FaZe(-417) (12:00 PM EST)

Both of these teams have hit somewhat of a rut recently but FaZe has the overwhelming talent advantage here. They could steal away a map and make this go the distance and air tight rotations could make this a fun series but Maka can’t keep playing like garbage.

FaZe is on an awful skid against a series of top teams so they really need to rebound here against lower level competition. These guys are all coming in at really solid prices given the matchup and there is potential for a few guys to pop off against crappy competition like we saw from Vitality the other day.

MiBR(+127) V FURIA(-167) (3:00 PM EST)

TACO5,0000.950.5869.30%0.83

As Marty McFly would say, I’ve seen this one before! These guys battle it out constantly and the death threats should flow freely. MiBR beat this team in their last go around after several dominating showings by FURIA before that. FalleN has not had great showings against these guys so we’d prefer to look at the next two guys up.

These guys always play MiBR hard and they should want more than anything to win this series. Similarly to MiBR, they have a guy in KSCERATO who has struggled in this matchup but their other top players have shined. Salaries here are pretty low for their potential and this series should be fun to watch.

GenG(-256) V Chaos(+189) (6:00 PM EST)

GenG:

daps5,0000.870.5467.00%0.77

GenG is in a similar position to FaZe and are looking to end their skid against an inferior team. GenG’s auto-ban is one of Chaos’ favorite maps and that bodes well for a good series. They need their stars to shine here and if they play well, they should win handily.

A bunch of roster changes have caused issues here as steel was one of their ebay players. They have some solid players but their team comp is a mess and they should be outgunned.
