Heroic (0–2) vs. North (1–1)
Despite close games against both Astralis and G2, Heroic find themselves without a win. Their most recent loss to G2 was particularly disappointing, as they allowed G2 to get back into the game and win in overtime after some real blunders in re-take situations. North didn't have a much better time in their match against Astralis, failing to get to double digits on both maps. stavn had another excellent showing in Heroic's loss to G2, posting 77 frags, 16 assists and a K/D differential of plus-16 across three maps, and he is going to be a great, albeit very popular, play at just $6,600. niko has been jacked up all the way to $9,600, and while I did like him over TeSeS in the last slate, $9,600 is just way too much. cadiaN is still one of the lowest-priced players on the slate, and while he is far from a dominant AWPer, he does have enough upside to consider at just $4,400.
aizy and MSL remain the top plays on the side of North. It is a bit interesting to note that gade has top fragged in both of their last two meetings with Heroic, and he was great on Inferno against Astralis. However, rostering a player like gade is going to be a big risk that I would only ever consider in GPPs.
