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 Saturday, May 23rd, 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.

DreamHack Masters Spring 2020- (Best of 3)
- BIG (+145) vs. Mousesports (-195)
- Complexity vs. MAD
- MiBR (+240) vs. Liquid (-375)
CS:GO DFS Captain Considerations
blameF is just $7,800 which is extremely cheap for someone who is carrying a 1.40 K/D ratio over the last 42 games played. He has had a 74 kill per round rate and a .53 death per round rate which is very good. He has had six straight games where he has had over 50+ DK points with one of those games hitting 130 DK points! While MAD is a solid opponent, blameF has been in great form and should not be overlooked in lineups.
EliGe is only $8,800 which is really cheap for the upside he brings. While he has had some down games recently, this seems to be a great spot for him against MiBR. He has faced them on six maps since the beginning of 2020 and owns a 1.42 K/D ratio against them during that time span. EliGe averages 69.4 DK points per game and has the ability to hit 100 DK points in any match. He is a great tournament play and would be one of the top captain options on this slate.
Other captain plays: k0nfig, NAF, syrsoN
CS:GO DFS Value Plays
Poizon checks in at $7,000 and is one of the cheaper options from this Complexity squad on this slate. He is averaging 49.7 DK points and has had 60+ DK points in four of his last six games played. Over the last month, he has carried a 1.21 K/D ratio while having a .77 kill per round rate and a .63 death per round rate. Poizon has been relatively consistent and even brings upside which makes him viable for both cash game and tournament lineups.
tabseN seems to be way underpriced for what he has done lately. He is just $6,000 and is averaging 59.1 DK points per game. Over the last month, tabseN has had a 1.15 K/D ratio and produced a .76 kill per round rate while having a .66 death per round rate. He has had three of his last five games go for 60+ DK points and for his price, that kind of production and value is needed to take down tournaments.
Other value plays: oBo, kNgV-, acoR

Top CS:GO DFS Stacks
Complexity has really been performing well over the last month as they have gone 29-13 over their last 42 maps. As a team, they have had a K/D ratio of 1.18 with four of their members having a K/D ratio above 1.15. They have won five straight games and had a very convincing win against Mousesports winning 2-0.
MAD Lions have carried a team K/D ratio of 1.03 over the last three months which is pretty solid but doesn’t compare to the great form that Complexity is exhibiting. Complexity is rather cheap on this slate which makes them really intriguing from a stacking standpoint. blameF and k0nfig lead the team with above 1.30 K/D ratios over the last 42 maps played and are both under $8,000 which makes them easy stacking targets. oBo and poizon are cheaper options that can be plugged in as a third-stacking option or as value one-offs.
Liquid has won nine straight games against MiBR and owns the overall record against them (27-12). While they haven’t been in the best of form, it is hard imagining them dropping five straight games. Over the last month, Liquid has produced a 1.01 K/D ratio and suffered some close losses (three straight games lost in the third game). Twistzz has been the strongest Liquid player over the last month with a 1.20 K/D ratio. NAF has had a 1.15 while EliGe has only had a 1.07 K/D ratio. These would be the main three Liquid players to focus on as they all can have big days when their game is on point.
Other stacks/teams: BIG
