Set your lineups here: LOL $60K Shock Blast [$20K to 1st] (LEC)
Perkz ($12,900) is obviously the better target for Captain but his price is just so high that the balance of the rest of your roster will be skewed unfairly. As a result, Upset might make for a better strategic pick considering the expected difference in points is not too high between them. Upset has averaged 2.67 kills per game, which might not seem too high, but that has come with two losses in three games.
Others to consider: Perkz ($12,900)

Dan Dan ($6,400)
Misfits started the LEC with two losses but came back on Sunday to beat Origen. Dan Dan had a combined KDA of 3/1/2 in that fixture. For a top laner, considering Misfits’ 1-2 record, Dan Dan has some solid numbers of 2 kills and 3 assists with 1.33 deaths, giving him a KDA of 3.75. He also has a CSPM of 8.55 so far.
Others to consider: Bwipo ($6,600)
Again, the temptation of Jankos ($8,000) is very strong, but you must fight off that feeling in order to build a more stable roster. Sure, Jankos will have a fantastic game but that doesn’t mean he is the best choice for your squad if you have budgetary constraints. SelfMade has a KDA of 29 this split, with 3.67 kills, 0.33 deaths and 6 assists per game. Even Jankos can’t match that.

Larssen has begun this season in some sprightly form. In three games, he has already built his KDA to over 10. He has an average of 5 kills, 1 death and 7.67 assists, giving him a KDA of 12.67 with a CSPM of over 10. In the previous game, against Schalke, he had a combined KDA of 8/3/12. No wonder he is averaging 36 DKFP per game.
Others to consider: Nukeduck ($7,600)
Here is where you spend up by drafting one of the best players in the LEC, from a production standpoint. In a loss to Vitality in their previous game, Perkz had a combined KDA of 1/3/1, well below his best. Despite that performance, he has still put up some sterling split numbers: 3.67 kills, 1.67 deaths and 3.67 assists per game.
Others to consider: Rekkles ($8,200)
An interesting stat to open this justification is that Vander hasn’t been killed yet this split. This season is still very young, but he also has the highest KDA in the LEC. By a combination of both stats, he has racked up close to 30 DKFP per game, highest among all support players in the LEC. He has 1.33 kills and 12 assists per game, carrying his KDA to 40!
This isn’t a very easy decision to make. There is also the value option of Misfits ($5,000) to consider. Both teams have solid spring records. Misfits started the split with two losses while Rogue has been more consistent, which is the only minor factor separating these two.
