Best of 3 Series
- NiP (-550) vs. Anonymo
- FPX (-285) vs. HYENAS
STYKO is the most expensive FPX player on the slate at $9,400 but he has been in great form as he has a 1.27 K/D ratio over his last nine maps played. He has been a headhunter over those nine games as he is sporting a 58.5% headshot percentage and has a .74 kill per round rate while having a low death per round rate of .58. His price point is high but he does offer upside as he has gone +20 in two of his last three matches played which is ideal in all formats.
device is a popular name in the CSGO world as he a member on a very powerful Astralis squad but has found a new home with NiP. When looking back at device over his last three months of games played, he has produced a 1.27 K/D ratio and had a .77 kill per round rate while having a low .60 death per round rate. While he has yet to play a competitive game with his new squad, he himself is one of the better CSGO players in the world and could hold his own as a one-off play.
Other captain plays: Maden
zehN is the best value on the slate and is a viable value play in all formats. He is sporting a 1.44 K/D ratio over his last nine maps that he has played and is sporting a .82 kill per round rate while having a low .57 death per round rate during that stretch. He is only $6,600 and has had back-to-back 70+ point performances on DK. zehN could easily be a great value captain play which would open up a lot of salary for the rest of your roster construction.
Kylar is certainly underpriced on this slate for the form that he has shown over the last month of games played. On 52 maps, Kylar has produced a 1.11 K/D ratio and has a +91 K/D differential during that timespan. He is sporting a .70 kill per round rate while having a .63 death per round rate but has kill upside as he headhunts with his 58.7% headshot percentage. With his pricing under 6k, Kyler could hold his own as a one-off play and hit value if they sweep or even have to go all three maps.
Other value plays: Farlig, Snax, hampus, KEi, aizy

Top Stacks/ Team Picks:
FPX (FunPlus Phoenix) is taking on a squad in HYENAS that is unranked and is looking to play their first competitive match as a unit. FPX is currently riding a three-game win streak and is 6-3 with a team K/D ratio of 1.15 over their last nine maps played. What we know of the HYENAS is that they feature a bunch of former NORTH players with bORUP who saw action with Heroic. Only bORUP has seen competitive action within the last three months so we have to think they will all carry some competitive rust in their first match as a collective unit.
FPX features a roster that sports a bunch of former GODSENT players who all carry a decent amount of experience over the past several years. Over the last month of games played, zehN and STYKO have performed the best as they both have the two-highest K/D ratios on FPX while Maden and Farlig are both viable stacking options as well. zehN is the best value of the group based on his price and production so he would be the first lock in any FPX stack you make.
Other Stacks: NiP
