Another round of fixtures awaits on Saturday in the LEC. With plenty at stake, we break down some players to consider from Saturday’s DraftKings slate below.
Set your lineups here: LOL $35K Kill Lane [$10K to 1st] (LEC)
Misfits started this season slowly. They were red hot early in the split opener against Fnatic, but somehow they collapsed under pressure. Kobbe was fantastic in that game and also fantastic in the games that followed that. In his previous game, he had a combined KDA of 3/0/6. Overall, he has a KDA of 4. This might seem like a left-field choice, but G2’s mid laner and ADC are far too expensive for Captain.
Others to consider: Caps ($12,600)
Jenax has enjoyed an astounding offensive season so far, at least by top laner standards. He has averaged 3.25 kills and 4.25 assists per game, which is extremely rare in League of Legends. Even rarer is his KDA of 3.33. However, he didn’t have a great game on Sunday against Mad Lions with a KDA of 0/5/1.
Others to consider: Orome ($6,400)
Razork hasn’t quite hit his stride in this split so far. He has averaged just 1.25 kills, 3.5 deaths and 4.5 assists. These numbers are only going to improve because there is talent and skill in his style of play. Despite these poor numbers, he is still averaging over 15 DKFP, not too bad for a jungler.
Others to consider: SelfMade ($7,200)
Extremely expensive is the first factor that comes to mind for Caps. However, G2 is the best team in the LEC so you will have to pay a premium to have that guarantee of class. Caps’ current season averages of 2.67 kills, 2 deaths and 4 assists are only going to go up. He has repeatedly proved himself as one of the best mid laners in Europe.
Others to consider: Febiven ($7,400)
Despite a poor start to the split, Perkz has still been hard to stop. G2 lost two of their opening three games. He still leads G2 with 3.67 kills and 3.67 assists per game. He has developed a KDA of 4.4 with a low death rate of 1.67. Perkz is the most expensive player on this slate, but he is also likely to provide the highest return.
Others to consider: Rekkles ($8,200)
After all these high-priced, high-production selections, there is no doubt your average salary remaining per player would have taken a beating. Support is the category to soothe some of that pain. Tore hasn’t enjoyed a great season so far, with no kills in three games. But he does have the ability to provide a decent fantasy aggregate.
SK Gaming ($4,600)
If you pick the roster just as mentioned in this article, you will be left with exactly 0 in the bank. This might be an efficient method to pick a balanced roster that includes Caps and Perkz. SK Gaming has started the split with three wins in four games, so form and confidence aren’t a problem.
