CS:GO top targets

There is plenty at stake in Saturday’s DreamHack Masters late slate on DraftKings, including a $30,000 contest with a top prize of $10,000. How to balance out your roster from the four teams? We break the slate down below.

Set your lineups here: CS:GO $30K Clutch [$10K to 1st] (DH Late)


Captain

Naf ($12,300)
Naf is my choice for Captain because he has been more consistent than Elige in the short term. Both players are incredibly skilled, so only form is left to analyze. Naf is coming off a solid 66-63 K-D game against Furia despite Liquid losing that game. His incredible offensive proficiency should help him provide a high return on investment.

Others to consider: Elige ($13,200)


High-priced flex options

Bubzkji ($8,800)
Mad Lions was beaten by BIG in their tournament opener. All five players finished with a negative K-D. Looking forward after that game, you would say that their best players will have to stand up. Arguably their best is Bubzkji. He had just 46 kills and 58 deaths against BIG but it wouldn’t be surprising if he reverses that K-D in this game.

Fallen ($8,000)
Fer ($7,000) and Fallen went off against Chaos. They demolished their opponents 16-12, 16-10. Fallen finished with 46 kills and 26 deaths with a K-D of +20 and an ADR of 85.9. He even had a 1v2 clutch win in the second map and a 1v3 clutch win denied in the opening map. Fallen has been one of the most consistent players for MIBR.

BlameF ($7,800)
BlameF is one of the most sought after players in this Complexity team because of his all-round prowess. He has a solid kill rate but his low death rate sets him apart. A case in point was the previous game against Mousesports. He had the lowest deaths among both teams with 22 deaths. Along with 30 kills, he finished that game with the highest KAST, at close to 80%.

Others to consider: Elige (8,800)

Value flex options

Twistzz ($7,200)
Twistzz is often an under-rated player in this Liquid team. He broke out of that shadow temporarily with a stellar performance against Furia. He led his team in kills (71), lowest deaths (59), K-D (+12) and KAST (76.3% of the rounds). His breakout displays of offensive strength prove his worth to this Liquid team. And that is worth more than $7,200.

Sjuush ($7,400)
Sjuush is another highly under-rated CS:GO player. That fact is a result of his inconsistency on the big stage. He did what he could to try and stave off BIG in the third map. He even had an ace in that map, Vertigo. It was insufficient in that matchup, but that doesn’t mean he will continue to underperform. Sjuush has a high kill rate this year, and he should showcase that on Saturday.

Others to consider: Fer ($7,000), Kngv ($6,400).
