07.02.20 CSGO Summit

4 more games await us today and we have a few more big favorites. There are a few teams on this slate that are not on the same level as the others and we hope to see them lose and go away for a bit (looking at you Movistar Riders). The showdown today looks like a lot of fun and the late slate ignores the early game which should be exciting to watch but a pain for fantasy. Whatever you decide to play, we all wish you luck and take some contests down! 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
1v3 Clutch+2 Pts
1v4 Clutch+3 Pts
1v5 Clutch+5 Pts
Quad Kill+3 Pts
Ace+5 Pts
Rounds Not Played Bonus +0.5 Pts per round not played
Match Sweep Bonus +5 Pts (minimum of 2 maps played)

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)
Kills 3Kills 2Rounds Won 1
Deaths -1.5Deaths -1Rounds Lost -.5
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. 

fnatic(+120) V BIG(-156) (12:00 PM EST)

FNC:

Golden5,4000.90.5767.40%0.85

This series is the closest of the day and can once again be avoided by playing the late slate if you don’t want the stress associated with playing this matchup. These guys are too expensive for a negative matchup and their map pool aligns poorly. This feels like a 2-1 loss for FNC and they’ll have to perform well in the face of adversity to do anything for DFS.

These guys continue to roll and their pricing has not picked up enough yet. If they beat fnatic, we should see great scores from a few guys here. This seems like a team to avoid or go all in on today.

G2(-179) V ENCE(+136) (3:00 PM EST)

AmaNeK5,20010.6172.10%0.86

G2 is a big favorite here over ENCE and they played really well yesterday despite dropping a map. They have a deadly 3 man stack at the top of the team and the only difficult part is determining who will be the guy on a given day. Pricing here may play a big factor in deciding who to run with….

Draftkings only has 4 players from E on their roster because they matter so little. These guys aren’t completely inept but this is a negative matchup.

FaZe was embarrassed by ENCE yesterday and brought down a lot of DFS lineups with them. MR is a joke of a team and the best follow up these guys could hope for to rebound. Everyone can conceivably be played in a spot like this. Rain has continued his stellar play and we are still looking for NiKo to take over a series like he is capable of doing, maybe this is his moment.

GenG was just beaten by these guys and seem outmatched in every way. This EG team has a tendency to run hot or cold so there could be potential if it’s one of their off days. Pricing here scares us as it takes a great day to pay off $8k and even in an upset that would be asking a lot of BnTeT.

This team is really intriguing for DFS .Brehze has looked much better recently and we have even seen tarik playing like he’s a professional player, good for him! If these guys keep up their play that we have seen in the past week, this could be the top team to stack of the day with reasonable prices and great upside.
