As we move towards the closing stages of the CS Summit, all games have plenty of importance attached to them. We’ve got picks for your DraftKings roster from Friday’s main CS:GO slate below.
Curious about when major leagues and events will return? Check out our DraftKings Sports Calendar for the latest updates.
It’s usually a rare occasion when Zywoo doesn’t lead Vitality in the K-D charts. He didn’t against OG, but still managed a fine performance of 55 kills and 54 deaths with a damage output per round of 76.6. He had two separate 1v3 clutch wins and even had an ace. This is becoming all too frequent for Zywoo, which is a fantastic sign for Vitality moving forward.
Others to consider: Brollan ($14,700)
High-priced flex options
Brollan couldn’t quite prevent Heroic from eventually winning their CS Summit game on Thursday. Brollan had 63 kills and 70 deaths with a K-D of -7. He still contributed in other metrics: he had a team-leading ADR of 79 and KAST of 74.5%. Fnatic will be looking to Brollan to carry them out of this mire of inconsistency they’ve somehow found themselves in.
All three maps of Liquid’s previous game against 100 Thieves went to three maps. Elige managed 60 kills in that fixture. His offensive skill has helped Liquid turn around their sub-par early-year form. He is now the most commanding player in Liquid, which is why he should find a position in your roster for this slate.
Farlig’s trade to Godsent will be a welcome change for him. He now has much better teams to play against because his former team, Copenhagen Flames, didn’t play too many tournaments in the top tier of professional CS:GO. He had 48 kills and 51 deaths against OG on Thursday. He had one poor map and two very good ones in that game, but still finished with respectable numbers.
Others to consider: Tabsen ($8,400).
Value flex options
Cerq has taken over as Evil Geniuses’ most prolific player. He has repeatedly led the K-D for EG while some of his colleagues have undergone a topsy-turvy period of good and poor form. EG’s last game against Gen.G was no different. Cerq had 37 kills and 29 deaths, including a 1v3 clutch win, to lead EG to a win without dropping a map.
syrsoN’s price has dropped again. He is now at just $7,400 after a consistent price upwards of $8,000 for the duration of last week. That’s a good sign for fantasy players because he hasn’t lost much fluency or form. He had 39 kills and 37 deaths in a 2-0 win against Fnatic. He has averaged 64.3 DKFP per game over a sustained period of time.
Others to consider: Maden ($7,200), Krimz ($7,600)
