The round of 16 in the BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Showdown starts on Tuesday. Here is a look at the players to consider for your DraftKings roster from the three-game slate.

Set your DraftKings lineup here: CS:GO $40K Quickscope [$10K to 1st] (BLAST)


Captain

blameF ($15,300)

blameF is coming into this game on the back of a terrible performance in the previous game against Vitality. He had 24 kills and 39 deaths in a resounding defeat. In the game that preceded the loss, blameF led both teams when he racked up 52 kills and 29 deaths against BIG with an average damage per round of 104.2. This volatility comes with the territory. From a fantasy standpoint, it’s important to just back talent and skill.

Others to consider: yuurih ($15,900)


High-priced flex options

yuurih ($10,600)

yuurih’s price has risen drastically after a run of good form. Furia hasn’t played much in the last few weeks after a highly-successful run at IEM New York, which should leave yuurih well-rested for BLAST. He had 57 kills and 43 deaths in a 2-1 loss to MIBR in Furia’s previous game on November 4. He had a successful 1v2 clutch and just missed out on a 1v4 clutch by the final opposing CT. He wouldn’t be my Captain, but he would occupy a flex position.

jks ($9,200)

jks hasn’t taken long to settle into a new role with a new team. That comes down to the quality of player he is. He had 31 kills in a drubbing at the hands of Vitality, but had 45 kills and 29 deaths in a win against BIG. His prowess and experience with long or short-range weapons for 100 Thieves is well-documented. He just needs to find his rhythm to stay on the right K-D side consistently.

KSCERATO ($8,400)

KSCERATO’s fall has been a bit surprising. He just hasn’t performed to the level he can over the last few months. Discount him at your peril, though. He has been around the Furia set-up for years, and has helped carry Furia to No. 4 on the CS:GO rankings. He had 47 kills and 47 deaths in the previous game. He has also been averaging a commendable 64.2 DKFP per game.

Others to consider: YEKINDAR ($8,800)


Value flex options

Jame ($7,600)

Not many will remember Jame’s stellar proficiency with Avangar before the team was disbanded. After his move to Virtus.pro, his output hasn’t dropped but his average price has, making him an easy selection in the value category for this slate. Case in point is Virtus.pro’s previous game against OG. Despite a 2-1 defeat, Jame had 52 kills and 43 deaths. He was the only Virtus.pro player to have a positive K-D.

mir ($8,200)

mir has been in sensational form on the professional circuit over the last few months. In his last 66 maps, he has averaged a stunning 0.81 kills with a decent death rate of 0.64. More than half of those kills have been headshots (53.4%). He is averaging 58.4 DKFP per game. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t meet that fantasy average in this game.

Others to consider: arT ($7,400)
