Call of Duty Daily Fantasy Helper: Week 11 New York, 7/10/20
FanDuel is now offering Call of Duty League DFS, and we have another set of matches for Friday. 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.
Quick note, this locks at 4 p.m. on Friday, July 10th.
The Call of Duty League is back for the New York Home Series, and we should go over the new scoring again. A scoring update changes how players and teams will gain fantasy points and could change how we value each. First off, players will receive 15 FanDuel points for Maps Not Played Player Bonus (MNPPB) and teams will receive 3 FanDuel points for Maps Not Played Team Bonus (MNPTB). This is the same as the 'Sweep Bonus' we see in League of Legends and CS:GO, granting extra points for getting the series done quickly.
Next, players will receive an additional one FanDuel point for Search and Destroy Kill Bonus (SDK), since this was the lowest-scoring game mode -- which would be played twice during a full five-game series. In prior COD helpers, I noted that Search and Destroy was a very low-scoring game mode and presented very little fantasy value, but that is now changed. The extra point will go a long way in helping a player's overall floor and ceiling.
|Team||Series||Series Win |
|Games||Games Won |
|London Royal Ravens||9-11||45%||37-44||46%|
|New York Subliners||8-14||36%||40-49||45%|
|OpTic Gaming Los Angeles||7-13||35%||35-44||44%|
|Los Angeles Guerrillas||5-13||28%||29-47||38%|
This event features four teams from the top half of the league and four teams from the bottom half. This should give us some overall balance and allow us to target different teams to potentially stack.
MVP - 1.5x Points
Formal, Chicago Huntsmen ($10,100) has been unbelievably consistent in his recent matches and is very worthy of the expensive salary. Over his last five series, Formal has posted 102 FanDuel points or more in each one, along with 4 or more Domination Captures (CAP) in four of those five series.
His most recent event was at the Minnesota Home Series, where he averaged 27.24 Kills per 10 minutes (Kp10M) over five hardpoint maps, 22.33 kills per domination map over three maps, and 7.00 kills per Search and Destroy map over five maps played. Formal is one of the highest floor plays on the entire slate -- you just have to spend the salary to get him in your lineups.
Mack, New York Subliners ($9,900) has been amazingly consistent since he joined the New York starting lineup, and he's worth having in any lineup you make, MVP spot or not. If we take a glance at his game log, we see 10 series played with him having scored 101 FanDuel points or more in 9 of those series.
On top of that, Mack has pushed past 150 FanDuel points three times in this span -- giving him one of the highest floors along with a very high ceiling. New York will be taking on Minnesota in this series, and with the teams separated by only two spots in the standings, this series could push towards a full five games -- granting maximum upside for Mack.
Zooma, New York Subliners ($7,900) has always known for being a high-upside player. Given his affordable salary, he offers great point per dollar value. To put it simply, the range of outcomes we see from Zooma can be vast. Over his last fives series, we see a low of 43.4 FanDuel points, but a high of 113 FanDuel points.
He is the ideal player for a tournament lineup since his ceiling is so high, all while coming in under $8K. As noted above, this should be a close series versus Minnesota, with plenty of time to rack up fantasy points.
Seany, London Royal Ravens ($8,500) is very similar to Zooma, where he brings a very high ceiling of points coupled with a potentially low floor. In his last five series, Seany has posted over 103 FanDuel points three different times but has been as low as 46.8 FanDuel points in that same span. His salary is a bit more expensive compared to Zooma's, but we are dealing with some serious upside that you want to lock into your tournament lineups.
Godrx, Minnesota RØKKR ($8,900) is a player to consider from Minnesota, considering I've mentioned this series against New York could be going longer. Two players from New York are above, so it's time to give some love to Godrx on the other side. He has posted 93 FanDuel points or more in three of his last four series,
That point total is bolstered by the fact that he has four 4 Domination Captures or more in those same three series, along with 81 seconds of Capture Time (CTIME) or more in each of his last two series. Adding points from multiple categories will allow him to post plenty of points in any situation.
Cleanx, Toronto Ultra ($7,800) has only been in the starting lineup for Toronto for one event (two series), so we'll need final confirmation he'll be back there again -- that will be found here. Yes, this is a small sample size, but in the two series, he posted 123 and 99 FanDuel points. Those are some serious numbers for a veteran, let alone a rookie.
If Cleanx is back in the starting lineup for Toronto, you can look to him as one of the best value players on the slate.
Atlanta FaZe ($5,900) is the best team in the Call of Duty League, the favorites in this series, and one of the favorites to win the entire event. They are tied for the highest salary of any team on the slate, but with that, you are getting a team that has posted 22 FanDuel points or more in each of their last 12 series -- something no other team can say.
Minnesota RØKKR ($5,300) is more of a contrarian pick at the team spot since they are the underdogs versus New York. They offer salary relief but don't have the same consistency or relative safety compared to some of the top teams.
