Kscerato regained some of his lost fluency in the game against Evil Geniuses on Thursday. Despite Furia losing in the third map, Kscerato was fluent with 50 kills. He was also killed 54 times. However, Kscerato has proved that he is one of the most prolific killing players in professional CS:GO, which is why he is the Captain in this slate.
Others to consider: Fallen ($11,700)
High-priced flex options
Another incredibly consistent player. Fallen has led MIBR as they slipped down the CS:GO rankings following a sub-par run of form. Leading in dire situations is a good example of strong characters. Fallen has been that person for MIBR. In terms of more recent form, he had 37 kills and 33 deaths in a 2-0 loss to Liquid, another indicator of his consistency.
Chaos was outright hammered by 100 Thieves in their previous game in the CS Summit. Despite that drubbing, Xeppaa was consistent, providing Chaos with an avenue of reliability. He had 40 kills and 33 deaths with a team-leading ADR of 83.6 and KAST of 74.5%. His price is a bit high but that takes into account his sensational recent form.
Yuurih has held Furia in good stead. Kscerato has gone through something of a topsy-turvy month but Yuurih has stepped up to move Furia up to No. 5 on the CS:GO rankings. He had 57 kills and 50 deaths against EG in another dominant display of offensive strength. In total, he has averaged 62.5 DKFP per game.
Other to consider: Hen1 ($7,400).
Value flex options
Autimatic was the only player from Gen.G to put on a valiant fight in their loss to Cloud9 on Thursday. He had 44 kills and 33 deaths but couldn’t prevent a straight-maps defeat. He even had an ADR of 80.2. Autimatic has continued to dominate Gen.G’s production with his effectiveness with long-range weapons.
Koosta’s price has dropped significantly since around the turn of the year. He had 28 kills and 38 deaths against Cloud9 on Thursday. It was because of these inconsistent performances that his stock has slipped. However, against Chaos, Gen.G should be too strong. Koosta should return to some semblance of form.
Others to consider: Fer ($6,600), kNgV ($7,000).
