07.02.20 CSGO DK Summit

I hope you all had your brooms out yesterday to sweep up some cash. None of the series were very close in a weird day for fantasy that saw a bunch of losers outscore main players. The slate today is a bit more all over the place with hopefully closer matchups. Pricing today is looking interesting so let’s go ahead and see what we have before the holiday weekend is here! 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

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (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. 

GODSENT(-130) V OG(+100) (12:00 PM EST)

GOD:

STYKO6,6001.080.7069.30%1.1
kRYSTAL4,6000.830.5064.70%0.81

Both teams here have been playing remarkably well recently. Farlig has been a Godsend for this team (sorry) but his price here is perplexing. He will need to have a GODly performance to pay that off and map selection should play a factor there. That pick is not for the faint of heart, even if he does well, that salary is rough.

NBK-5,6000.990.6467.60%1.01

This team is always hard to predict but ISSAA has easily been their best player of late. We have a few players drawn out as top plays but we really don’t want to look past ISSAA unless you are confident in this team winning. They are mostly a one off target on this slate if anything.

North(+225) V NiP(-312) (3:00 PM EST)

N:

gade5,4000.960.6167.90%0.91
Kristou4,4000.870.5664.10%0.81

Both of these teams have not been inspiring much confidence with their recent play but North is the big underdog for good reason. These players are fine when facing lower tier opponents but NiP is a solid team that should prove difficult. The map pools look positive for NiP as hell but hold a glimmer of hope for a close series.

hampus5,2000.960.6367.20%0.97

NiP will win this if their top players do well and could even stomp them if they all play up to their potential. Nawwk has been a disaster lately and we see his price slipping away as a result. Plopski, twist, and REZ will need to carry much of the load and their pricing is fair for their upside in this matchup but hard to stomach with how gross this team can be.

FURIA(-294) V Cloud9(+214) (3:00 PM EST)

FUR:

VINI5,0000.970.6069.60%0.9

FUR is a much more cohesive and well functioning team than C9 and their individual talents are superior too. They have made some questionable map picks recently and are prone to errors but should be able to overcome it all here. ArT has looked great recently and should be a popular pick today.

This team is on or off and they tend to ride cold or hot streaks hard. If they get off to good starts on any of the maps we could see that snowball into a solid performance but these guys seem to always blow it in crucial moments so don’t get overzealous here.

s0m6,0000.980.6369.30%0.94
daps5,0000.890.5667.30%0.79

This matchup is the closest of the day and seems like a crapshoot in either direction. It should end up being close but 100T has the advantage which makes it hard to trust a stack of this team. It seems like a better idea to look for a top performer on either side and hope they are the hard carry in a drawn out series.

Jks and Gratisfaction have been the best players for this team and their prices are very approachable. We see these guys being popular pivot plays in an okay matchup and great upside. You can certainly do a lot worse at these salaries.
