No. 4 Mousesports begin their DreamHack Masters campaign on Friday. There are two other games in DraftKings’ main CS:GO slate. Here is a look at how to potentially fill your roster.
Set your lineups here: CS:GO $60K Quickscope [$15K to 1st] (DH)
Frozen isn’t the obvious choice for Captain as is fairly well indicated in his price. He is, however, one of the most underrated offensive players in professional CS:GO. For a long time now, Frozen has been the AWPer for Mousesports. He has been averaging 0.70 kills per round during the last three months. If you’re looking for a high-risk, high-reward Captain in this slate, Frozen is your best bet.
Other to consider: Fallen ($15,000)
High-priced flex options
Fallen is an incredibly skilled player, but is he worth the tag of the most expensive player in this slate? The fact that that question is being asked is an indicator that he is probably not worth the Captain’s price of $15,000. However, he should definitely make up at least one flex position. He had 46 kills and 38 deaths against Furia to lead MIBR in both kills and K-D in their previous game.
Fer did not start well against Furia and that underwhelming form carried on right through the game. He finished with 31 kills and 41 deaths. He has plenty of experience though, which is an important characteristic to consider after a drubbing. He is also a strong stacking target from MIBR considering they start as heavy favorites against Chaos.
Accuracy is one of Bubzkji’s strengths. In his career that has spanned 18,637 rounds, he has racked up 13,602 kills with a headshot rate of over 50%. He even has an ADR of 81.4 over his career. He has been one of the most consistent players for Mad Lions and has played a massive part in their ascent up to No. 13 in the world.
Other to consider Kngv (8,400)
Value flex options<
This price for a player of Ropz’s quality is a fantastic opportunity. Ropz has been arguably Mousesports’ most prolific offensive player despite the prowess of Frozen. In fact, he has been averaging 0.05 kills more than Frozen (0.75 per round in the last three months) with just 0.62 deaths as well. All this quality for $8,000 can provide your roster with a competitive advantage.
It’s interesting that Sjuush is priced so low despite having the best K/D ratio in Mad Lions over the last few months, even surpassing Bubzkji. He has the same kill rate at 0.74 per round but he is also averaging just 0.64 deaths during this period. He even has an average damage per round of over 80 with a KAST of over 70. There isn’t much harm in having two players from Mad Lions in this particular slate either.
Others to consider Acor ($6,000), Woxic ($7,200)
