Captain

Sh1ro ($14,700)

For the second consecutive day running, my Captain for the Nine to Five would be Sh1ro. He wouldn’t have let you down had you picked him as Captain on Tuesday. He had 37 kills and 22 deaths in a 2-0 win over Syman, with a damage output per round of 88.8. His 22 deaths was the second lowest in Gambit Youngsters. He also averages 72.3 DKFP per game, highest on this slate.


High-priced flex options

Krad ($8,200)

Hard Legion was in dominant touch against Avez. Of the two maps that were won, Hard Legion conceded just seven rounds. Krad had a middling individual performance, with 48 kills and 47 deaths. He absolutely struggled in the second map (Vertigo), where he had just 11 kills and 25 deaths. Apart from that, Krad was quite solid right through the game. He would want to put that performance behind him on Wednesday.

Kressy ($9,000)

Despite Alternate Attax cruising past Endpoint 2-0 in a straightforward straight-maps victory in the Nine to Five competition on Tuesday, Kressy had a bad day. He managed just 28 kills but was also killed 37 times. Inconsistency is not the perception he would want to give out because he has actually been quite steady. He has averaged just 38.9 DKFP per game. That is far too low for a player of his caliber.

Fr0slev ($7,800)

Fr0slev’s fantastic killing form held AGF in good stead on Tuesday against Secret. Only in Train (the second map), Fr0selv had a negative K-D. Eventually, he ended with 60 kills and 51 deaths, leading AGF to a win in the third map. He even had a 1v2 clutch win in the first map in a pistol round.

Others to consider: TMB ($8,600)


Value flex options

Slaxz- ($7,400)

Slaxz- put in another astounding individual performance on Tuesday, his second in successive days. He led Alternate Attax with 60 kills and just 33 deaths. In fact, he led both teams in almost every major metric: kills (60), K-D (+27) and ADR (94.8). His price has risen slightly from Tuesday, but it’s still low enough to consider him a value-for-money choice.

Ax1le ($6,800)

Ax1le was in terrific offensive rhythm on Tuesday. Not often would you have Ax1le staying consistent with such fluency but that’s also fairly reflected with this low price of $6,800. He had 42 kills, second highest in Gambit Youngsters against Syman, with just 23 deaths and an ADR of 106. He had the highest KAST (81.4%) among both teams in this game.

Others to consider: Nafany ($6,600), Stfn ($6,400).
