This one should be great and I hope it gets even better for all of you who are trying to take home some money this weekend at DraftKings. We’ve got some great matchups to start the weekend off right, so let’s dive right in!

This is easily one of my favorite sports to cover here at Rotoballer because I play a lot of COD myself and like to think I’m pretty good at it too. I’ve been following the COD League for about five years and I can finally put all this knowledge to the test! First off we have the Seattle Surge taking on the NYSL, then we have the Atlanta FaZe taking on the home team in the Toronto Ultra, then we have the red hot Optic Texas taking on the Florida Mutineers and lastly we have the Minnesota Rokkr in first place. in Los Angeles Thieves!

Whiteboard Overview

The first game is tough, Seattle has been very impressive during the qualifiers going 4-1 with their only loss coming to the Toronto Ultra in a 5 map match. I love Surge in Control so I don’t see a sweep here. NYSL has been very good on Hardpoint and Surge as well, so it could really come down to which maps are chosen. SnD, on the other hand, I give Surge the upper hand here. My only concern is that Seattle has struggled in LAN this year and the NYSL went through the entire Pro-Am in LAN without losing. As the odds indicate, this is close to a draw, but for value’s sake, I’ll give Seattle the win here and say 3-2.

Toronto has had the kind of ups and downs year. Major 2 was horrible for them and they seemed to have recovered quite a bit. They went 4-1 during the Major 3 qualifiers and even beat a good team in the NYSL and Seattle. But Atlanta on LAN is another beast. Atlanta seems to have turned SnD around and has also been pretty good in Control where Toronto has struggled. Toronto has the advantage at Hardpoint right now, but it’s not much. I expect Atlanta to win more than likely 3-1, but I wouldn’t be surprised at 3-2 either.

I don’t know if I have to say much about this other than Shotzzy is absolutely nuts and I’m ready for him to fail me when I’m with him this weekend! I’ve also seen photos of Skyz with a brace on their hand, which is a bit concerning, but could be more precautionary. Either way, Optic have been playing at an incredible level and I don’t see them losing here to Florida. Optic 3-0 seems like the most likely option as I don’t see where Florida can beat them.

Last but not least, this is where my surprised pick comes in. Minnesota looked very dominant during the Qualifiers and even beat the LAT 3-0, but here’s the difference. It’s on LAN this time. Minnesota in LAN has been horrible and I understand that with the addition of Havok to the team they have looked a lot better, but that didn’t seem to help much during the Pro-AM as they went 1-2 during the playoffs. LAT has always appeared on LAN and seems like a different team compared to when they play online. They’ve had their moments during the Qualifiers, including the fastest win in the CDL. I have this as a 3-1 LAT win. I could be dead wrong and Minnesota could be the real deal, but I think the LAT’s edge on this board could be huge, especially with how cheap they are.

COD DFS Basics

  1. Just like in CSGO, players receive two points for kills and are penalized -1 for dying. Therefore, the simplest stat to look at here is the K/D ratio.
  2. You need to include a team post on both sites. Teams accumulate fantasy points for games won (+4), matches won (+10), and search and destroy/control rounds won (+.5).
  3. Teams will play best-of-five matches in a rotation of various game modes. Those modes and the order in which they are played are as follows: Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, Control, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy.
  4. In hardpoint rounds, players with positive K/D ratios are usually the ones with the highest score and these rounds are usually the bloodiest.
  5. They have also changed a game mode from Domination to Control for League play. This is going to be very different in the game as it is based on rounds and not first to 200. They play first to win 3 rounds. You win by capturing both points or by killing the enemy team until they run out of life. One team defends and the other attacks.
  6. There is a sweep bonus this year as both teams and players can get a 20 point player sweep and a 5 point team sweep. In the event that they sweep, they are also awarded a 20 point bonus for not playing the hard spot and a 5 point bonus for not playing the final Search and Destroy map. That adds up to a sweep of 45 extra points that are going to be very crucial this year.

Captain COD DFS Considerations

Shooting: Yes, shotzzy broke the board and nearly dropped the high score line this season with 158. Going +31 with 77 kills is insane. They completely dismantled the LA Thieves. He’s been so solid this season that it’s hard for me not to have him in every lineup. During the Major 3 qualifiers, he averaged 1.21 K/D in HP, .89 in SnD, and 1.14 in Control. His comeback was just on another level. He’s going to have a huge estate, so if you’re someone who fades heavily, he looks the other way but for the cash games.

Celio: This is the perfect place to shop for bass in Cellium. He has struggled in his last three games and with this on LAN. I’m sure he comes back with an absolute bang. During Major 2’s run, Cellium was a respawn god, as he had 1.38 K/D HP and 1.23 Control. His numbers on his LAN are crazy. If there’s anyone who isn’t in Optic that you should have in your rosters, it’s Cellium. Plus, we’re getting it at a cheaper price compared to its Abezy and Simp teammates. I will always take Cellium over the other two when it is cheaper. Great place with high potential.

Other Captain Plays: Dashy, Simp, Hydra, Sib, Attach

COD DFS Value Plays

Octane: It may be a bit of a recent bias, but Octane, since the role change didn’t affect him too much, has looked like the best on this team during playoffs. It was a very up and down qualifier for LAT, but with Major in LAN, the human turret has a chance to show up once again. During the last LAN tournament Octane averaged 1.11 K/D HP, 1.15 SnD and 1.08 Control and helped his team to a solid 2nd place finish. At this price of $7,200, it’s a very good play for your GPP. I wouldn’t say he’s a big cash player because of how well Minnesota has been playing recently and the risk of them getting hit is there. High risk, but can also bring big rewards, especially if LAT can pull off a win to start the tournament.

Precision: $6,200 is too cheap to pass up, especially with the way his recent play has been. He hasn’t been the best on LAN, but I really think Accuracy has figured something out recently and drastically improved this team. He’s been amazing and even if he’s not up to 120+, he’s down 2 of his last 3. I think anything 90+ is a huge win for the price. Especially if this game goes for 5 rounds like I think it does, then there are a lot of points to be had and it will make it hard not to at least hit the value. He’s not someone I’d run as unique, so I think pairing him with Bb or Pred is a critical play because if Accuracy is doing well, at least one of those guys is crushing him as well.

Other Value Plays: Arcitys, CleanX(GPP), Havok, Drazah, Pred, Scump

Batteries COD DFS

Texas Optician: An expensive battery but a battery that is worth it. This is the only game I can see that ends in a sweep. Maybe the Atlanta game too, but I can see Toronto at least stealing a map. I just can’t find a place where Florida can make anything happen here. Optic is one of the best respawn teams in the league and their worst gamemode may be SnD, but it has been a much worse gamemode for Florida. Accommodating two players and team spotting is likely to be a critical play in cash games. They have the most likely path to an additional 45 points with a sweep and I see that happening. Prolute is too expensive so I won’t play with it. It’s been good but it hasn’t been 10.4k good. Shotzzy for almost a grand cheaper though? Yes please. Dashy at 8.8k is great and Scump at 8.2k is fantastic too. There’s no need to get Prolute for that price because the only way it ends up being a good play at that price is if it goes down to 140+.

Other team plays: Atlanta FaZe, LA Thieves (GPP), Seattle Surge, NY Subliners


  1. TLDR: Seattle Surge 3-1/2, Atlanta FaZe 3-1, Optic Texas 3-0, LA Thieves 3-1
  2. Seattle Surge: Bb, Pred, Accuracy
  3. NYSL: Kismet, Hydra
  4. Atlanta: All
  5. Toronto: Cammy, CleanX
  6. Optics: Shotzzy, Dashy, Scump
  7. Florida: Awakening at the Most
  8. LA Thieves: Octane, Envoy, Drazah
  9. Minnesota: Deputy, Havok
