FalleN has continued his dominance on this MIBR team, which is exceptionally rare simply because of the nature of CS:GO. Against Evil Geniuses in MIBR’s previous game, he had 61 kills and 48 deaths with an ADR of 78.1 and a game-leading KAST of close to 80%. He is MIBR’s best player as is indicated by his high DraftKings price.
Others to consider: Floppy ($13,500)
High-priced flex options
Floppy has been undeniably Cloud9’s best player since the start of May. He has averaged well over 0.70 kills per round, leading the K-D charts for Cloud9 on a consistent basis and he has averaged 58.3 DKFP. In his past two contests on DraftKings, he has added 74 and 50 DKFP, with a combined 94 kills in those two matchups.
Grim has racked up over 10,000 kills in a career that has spanned 13,852 rounds (0.74 kills per round). He also has a headshot rate of close to 50%. Any player that has these killing metrics is worth their salt as an offensive lead. Against Yeah, a team that has been hit by conflict of interest issues, Grim should have another strong K-D game.
Calyx has been an offensive stalwart for Envy. Despite his team not having played too much CS:GO in the past few months, he still has over 20,000 rounds of experience with 16,255 kills (0.76 per round) and 13,600 deaths (0.63 per round). He has an impressive K/D ratio of 1.20 and a headshot rate of 55%. These numbers are far too good for too long to ignore.
Others to consider: Xeppaa ($10,200).
Value flex options
After a sub-par period, oSee is starting to find the same fluency that made him one of the best killing weapons on Cloud9. He is also relied on for efficient management of the AWP, a very important role on any CS:GO team. Cloud9 should also beat New England Whalers without dropping a map, which means oSee also has the chance of adding bonus points for the rounds not played.
kNgV- is a stacking play from MIBR. Chaos hasn’t played too much professional CS:GO in the weeks leading up to this regional tournament, while MIBR has continuously been at it against some of the best teams in the world in the Blast Premier Series. Against EG in the previous game, kNgV- had 51 kills with a damage output of 74.
Others to consider: Sonic ($7,000), Michu ($7,600).
