Counter Strike: Global Offensive DFS Picks (5/22/20) - DraftKings, Daily Fantasy


Welcome back, RotoBallers, to another edition of my Counter Strike: Global Offensive DFS picks. I have to admit, I am having a ton of fun playing and covering eSports DFS at RotoBaller! As always, I will do my best to give you the stats and info you need to build the best lineups possible for your GPP and cash game CS:GO contests on DraftKings which can also be related to FanDuel contests as well. 

We have a three-game main slate on DraftKings that involves teams from the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 series. This is an exciting tournament as it features some of the best teams in the world which mean we should see highly competitive matchups.

Today I'll be bringing you my Counter Strike: Global Offensive DFS lineup picks, analysis and advice for eSports DFS contests on DraftKings for Friday, May 22nd, 2020 at 8:00 AM. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @jorgepucks as I am happy to engage with readers and try to answer your questions!

Editor's Note: Our new Premium eSports tools include DFS Cheat Sheets, a powerful Research Station, and the DFS Lineup Optimizer. Check them out! VIEW TOOLS

 

DreamHack Masters Spring 2020-  (Best of 3)

  • Mousesports (-240) vs. Complexity (+180)
  • BIG (+110) vs. MAD Lions (-150)
  • MiBR (-250) vs. Chaos (+180)

 

CS:GO DFS Captain Considerations

Ropz has the most upside on this slate as he has had 80+ DK points in three out of his last seven games played. He is only $8,000 which is a steal compared to other slates where he has hovered above the $9,000 range. Over the last month, he has produced a K/D ratio of 1.17 while having a .71 kill per round rate and a .60 death per round rate. He will be a very popular choice for the captain role due to his price so he might carry heavy ownership on this slate. 

Sjuush is just $7,600 on DK and is underpriced for someone who is averaging 61.9 DK points per game. He has had 10 out of his 12 games where he had more than 50+ DK points with eight of those games hitting above 60+ DK points. He has carried a 1.12 K/D ratio throughout the 2020 season and has a .72 kill per round rate while having a .64 death per round rate. Sjuush is my favorite value play for the captain role and should be considered for both cash and tournament lines.

Other captain plays: FalleN, Bubzkji

 

CS:GO DFS Value Plays

acoR is the lowest-priced MAD Lions player on the slate despite him carrying a 1.16 K/D ratio since the beginning of 2020. He is averaging 55.6 DK points per game and he has had 11 out of his last 12 games end up with more than 40+ DK points per game which is great value for his price. During this 2020 season, acoR has had a .69 kill per round rate and a .60 death per round rate which is very solid. With his price being so low, acoR fits in both tournament and cash game lineups and is one of the top value plays on the slate. 

Woxic is on the higher end of the value spectrum at $7,200 but is worth spending up for on this slate. Over the last month, he has a 1.07 K.D ratio with a .71 kill per round rate. He has scored 50+ DK points in seven out of his last eight games which tells us that he has been in really good form as of late. He is averaging 53.5 DK points per game and for the price, he is worth every penny on this slate.

Other value plays: trk, AcilioN

Top CS:GO DFS Stacks

MiBR is the higher-ranked team when it comes to their matchup against Chaos and owns the head-to-head record of 2-1. These two squads faced off in March during the Flashpoint 1 tournament and MiBR took games one and three so they do have a slight edge on Chaos. MiBR has carried a team K/D ratio of 1.07 over the last month but has run into their arch-rival Furia which has hindered their upside overall as a team. Over the last month, FalleN and kNgV- have led the team with a 1.26 K/D ratio with fer only having a 1.06 K/D ratio over that timeframe. Trk just joined the team and while he didn’t do great in his first game with MiBR, he should grade out to be a good value play based on the salary savings and potential chance for bonus round points.  

MAD is my favorite team and stack on the slate. They are winners of four of their last five games and are the higher-ranked team compared to BIG. The entire team is reasonably priced which makes it easy to get a MAD Lions stack into your lineups on this slate. AcoR leads the way for the Lions with a 1.16 K/D ratio since the beginning of 2020 and he is very reasonably priced. Sjuush is carrying a 1.12 K/D ratio and Bubskji has a 1.09 k/D ratio over the same timespan so these would be the three main targets to focus on for your MAD Lions stacks.

Other stacks/teams: Mousesports
