BlameF has been in tearaway form for Complexity over this past week, leading them to the final stages of the Blast Premier Series. He has been hard to stop all year, actually, particularly from a killing standpoint. He had 37 kills and 32 deaths, a middling performance by his lofty recent standards against Forze in Complexity’s previous game.
Others to consider: Brollan ($12,600)
High-priced flex options
Brollan is a high-priced target irrespective of the opponent. He has been Fnatic’s most productive performer in a topsy-turvy 2020. Most impressively, he led Fnatic when the struggle was real right after its ascent and subsequent descent from the No. 1 ranking. He should have a field day out against Nordavind.
OG was blanked 16-6, 16-6 in their previous series against Ninjas in Pyjamas. Despite that embarrassing defeat, Mantuu still managed 25 kills and 30 deaths. He has been a considerable force with the AWP in particular and should lead OG on Monday against Sprout. There is also the rounds-not-played bonus potential in this matchup.
All credit to BIG for a fantastic March. They not just competed but comfortably beat Faze and G2 in the final games of the DreamHack Masters. That challenge was laid down by SyrsoN. It wasn’t long ago that he was a value choice, but that sensational form has led to his promotion up to the high-priced target category. He has even averaged 63.5 DKFP per game, another indicator of his rhythm.
Others to consider: Tabsen ($8,200), F0rest ($8,600)
Value flex options
The Blast tournament was kind to KRIMZ. He suffered a calamitous slip in form around the time Fnatic rose to No. 1. He found his offensive fluency in that competition, leading Fnatic repeatedly in the best-of-one games. He also makes for a strong stacking play considering the massive disparity between Fnatic and Nordavind.
I’m not entirely sure this price for Sjuush is justified. He has been a strong second-in-command to Bubzkji ($8,400) from a defensive and offensive perspective. He has put up in excess of 50 DKFP as well. Against PACT, Sjuush should put in a strong K-D game and also claimed the bonus points on account of the matchup advantage.
Others to consider: K0nfig ($7,800), XANTARES ($7,000)
