Welcome back, RotoBallers, to another version of my Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DFS picks. Well, today didn’t go as planned… NaVi losing for the first time on this year’s LAN to Liquid of all teams was completely insane and almost unpredictable. S1mple could also have one of the worst performances in the past 6 months. Gambit handled the Heroic as expected and won quite a few tournaments. But we move on and we’ll get it back tomorrow when G2 has a rematch with NiP who still has no gear, but this time kennys is out and nexa is back with some much needed support. In the other game we had ZywOo and company take on Astralis, who played really well. This will be the third match between these teams since Astralis changed their roster. In the end, we have NaVi and Heroic holding each other in the first round of the losing group.
Today I will bring you Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DFS DraftKings eSports team selection, analysis and tips for DFS eSports competitions for Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at 10:30 a.m..

Blast Premier World Final
Best of 3 options
- G2 (-300) vs. NiP (+220)
- Astralis (+145) vs Vitality (-190)
- Navi vs. Heroic
Niko: I know what you’re saying, “He just got these two captains last week”. I know, but these are clearly the best plays on the charts. G2 will show up once they have defeated NiP and step in and make sure they get the job done this time. This time they have nexa instead of KennyS which I believe is a big upgrade, especially given how poorly the kennys played in their most recent game. NiKo may have lost but he still has 80 kills with a +15 K/D difference and is still one of the top scorers on the leaderboard. NiKo holds 1.31 K/D at 0.84 KPR and 0.64 DPR.
ZywOo: ZywOo is an absolute monster in this game, and I just wanted to give a few stats for his last two games against Astralis recently. He got an average of 81 kills with an average K/D difference of +34. Yeah, it’s only 2 games but still, those are crazy stats to keep up with. On LAN, he averaged 1.42 K/D with 0.85 KPR and 0.60 DPR across 52 maps. This will be a close game, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go to OT at least one map and we’ll most likely see 3. If there’s anyone you should play from this game, it’s ZywOo and he’s on the heater right now.
Other captains play in order of preference: hunter, K0nfig, BlameF, REZ (GPP), Shox
Nexa: I really love Nexa as a value game on tomorrow’s FD. He was amazing on LAN this year and was a huge part of helping G2 reach the finals against NaVi. He has 1.12 K/D on LAN with 0.67 KPR and 0.60 DPR. He’s very cheap on FD and at a viable price on DK, but I would recommend going to AmaneK on DK as a cheaper spinner.
BlameF: The blame has been solid since joining Astralis, he holds 1.17 K/D at 0.74 KPR and 0.63 DPR. This is respectable given his price on DK of 7k and also a mid-range play of FD. I would say he’s more of a GPP player but I can see this match going on 3 maps which means a very high score. In the two games against Vitality, he also played quite well. This is a big game that BlameF can get into and is in a great position to win some GPP.
Other values close in order of preference: AmaneK, gla1ve (GPP), misutaaa, Perfecto

Top Stack / Team’s Pick
G2: I’m going back to G2, with nexa joining the team. I think this elevates them a lot. Nexa was on fire in the final tournament where he played so well and was a big part of their success up to the Finals against NaVi. With nexa they have a solid 4 and then Jackz. Who like I said is a forever blur for me and so far it continues to grow. NiKo and Hunter both have a great ability to be top-notch bots and be able to hold the game in their hands. AmaneK has shown to be a good enough AWPer to get them. And then there was nexa, who showed up and helped this team a lot. I think there’s a lot of revenge in this story, which I don’t usually focus on. But I think they want to get this win after such a disastrous loss before. On the other hand, the device is yet to be released and I still believe it’s a huge blow for NiP. Hopefully G2 doesn’t let me down twice in a row.
