Call of Duty Daily Fantasy Helper: Week 8 Seattle, Saturday 5/23/20
FanDuel is now offering Call of Duty League DFS, and we have another set of matches for Saturday. If you are new to Call of Duty DFS, I put together a quick introduction piece to give you the basics. The rosters are similar to CS:GO DFS, and we'll take a look at a few different things to break down some players in good situations.
Assault, Minnesota RØKKR ($10,400)
Minnesota didn't have the best event two weeks ago but are back at it this weekend looking to get moving in the right direction. Despite the team failing to succeed, Assault was able to average 23.7 kills per map over the seven respawn maps he played. He will add a modest amount when it comes to Domination Captures and Hardpoint Capture time, adding to his already high floor of points.
Minnesota came into this event with the third-best odds for the outright win, and if they are going to be on the winning side, you should look to stack a few of their players. Assault should lead the way and his combination of floor and ceiling is what you want in the MVP spot.
Temp, New York Subliners ($9,400)
Despite being in 11th place out of 12 teams this season, the New York Subliners came into this event with the best odds to win the tournament outright. You may want to take that with a grain of salt, but I'll say this about New York -- they have plenty of talent, but they just haven't put it all together as a team yet. Temp has a great price tag, and you should consider putting him in the MVP spot today.
Two weeks ago, New York played a total of 10 respawn maps where Temp was able to average 23.8 kills per map. He has five Domination Captures or more in three of his last five series, along with over 100 seconds of Hardpoint Capture time in three of his last five series. He has a super-strong floor and is coming in at a great price point.
Formal, Chicago Huntsmen ($9,100)
Some of the players on the Huntsmen are too cheap this week and bring a bit of value to your lineups. Chicago haven't played at an event in a month but finished in 3rd place and played a total of 11 respawn maps. Formal posted an average of 22.6 kills per respawn map while finishing with a positive kill-to-death differential in each series he played.
Formal won't add a ton when it comes to the secondary stats but holds a strong floor from purely kills. His ceiling isn't as high as it once was, but given the fact we should be looking at a longer series here, his consistency is what you should be looking to lock into your lineups.
Wuskin, London Royal Ravens ($8,900)
While Wuskin's most recent series wasn't great -- London got swept -- if we look back further, we see that he brings plenty of fantasy points to your lineups. London are a middle of the road team and often find themselves in longer series. They are good, not great, and that causes them to struggle at certain points. They get in spots where they cannot close out a series or are just good enough to extend it one more map.
That is great form a fantasy perspective since we get more fantasy points from their players, and that is why Wuskin should be a strong option today. He is on the cheaper side of things, comes in with three Domination Captures or more in each of his last three series, along with 50 seconds of Hardpoint capture time or more in those same three series. He isn't a pure slayer going for kills but rather a strong role player who brings value based on some secondary stats.
Slasher, OpTic Gaming Los Angeles ($9,000)
OpTic Gaming had their best result of the season at the last event, finishing in second-place during the Florida Home Series. They played a total of 20 maps in that event, 13 of which were respawn maps. On those 13 maps, Slasher averaged a very strong 26.2 kills per map.
Not only was his average kills per map strong, but he was adding plenty when it came to Domination Captures and Hardpoint Capture time. He's averaged 4.8 Domination Captures per game over his last five series and 110 seconds of Hardpoint Capture time in those same five.
Chicago Huntsmen ($5,800)
Chicago are one of the favorites to win this event, and they don't come in as the most expensive team in action. Stacking players with their team brings a bit of correlation to your lineup, which is something to consider. Chicago should be able to come away with the win and offers a good combination of safety and price.
