The LCS resumes on Sunday with four more fixtures. We have some players for your consideration from DraftKings’ Sunday LCS slate, which includes a contest with a total prize pool of $60,000, including $20K to first place.

Normally, I’d say Zven is priced a bit too high to lend balance. However, on this slate, I’d think you will need him. He should have a fantastic game because Cloud9 faces Golden Guardians on Sunday. Zven has a combined KDA of 3.5/1/5, with a KDA of 8 this season. These numbers will continue to move upward.
Others to consider: Nisqy ($12,300)
Here is where you save some of your salary balance. Against 100 Thieves on Saturday, Impact had a combined KDA of 1/2/8, doing his job well to secure the win for Liquid. He has averaged 2 kills, 1.5 deaths and 3 assists this season. This isn’t a high-priced selection, so the numbers won’t be high but these inclusions are still so important.
Others to consider: Ssumday ($6,400)
This is also a selection to ease some of the burden on the average salary remaining per player. Evil Geniuses is one of the best teams in the LCS, so there is also that advantage. Svenskeren has been decent so far, adding 1 kill, 2 deaths and 7 assists per map. That sample size is for two maps, but his season deviation won’t be much from this.
Others to consider: Meteos ($6,800)
With five kills per game, PowerOfEvil has the third-highest kill average in the LCS thus far. His kill participation climbs over 10 with 5.5 assists as well. Also, he will face a struggling Immortals team on Sunday, which is an additional impactful reason to pick him. He is averaging 29 DKFP per game and should surpass that on Sunday.
Others to consider: Nisqy ($8,200)
CodySun and 100 Thieves have outright struggled in the first few games of the new split. That might change on Sunday with a stark difference in quality of opponent. CodySun had a combined KDA of 1/3/3 in a loss to Liquid on Saturday. Despite that sub-par performance, he has still kept a low death rate and now is the time to improve on his offensive output.
Others to consider: Tactical ($7,200)
This is purely a decision to improve the spending balance of your roster. I don’t expect Aphromoo will do much, in terms of adding too many fantasy points. At $4,200, though, all he needs to do is provide value. If you have the budget, then Liquid’s CoreJJ ($5,000) should be a better choice.
After a loss to open their summer campaign, FlyQuest has quickly put their season back on track with two wins, including one on Saturday against a quality team in Team SoloMid. FlyQuest racked up 28 kills to TSM’s 9 and had a gold advantage of 12,500. That performance will fill the team with confidence for Sunday.
