There are several mismatches in Sunday’s League of Legends slate from the LPL and the LCK. We break down some targets for your DraftKings lineups below.
Set your lineups here: LOL $80K Shock Blast [$20K to 1st] (LPL-LCK)
JD Gaming and Loken have begun the way they would have desired. Although they have lost four of nine maps in the LPL, they have still shown plenty of promise to continue where they left off in spring. Loken has led the production for JD Gaming with 4.22 kills and 5.56 assists per game along with 1.89 deaths a game.
Others to consider: Teddy ($12,300)
Doran hasn’t been too bad this season, providing DragonX with another avenue for offense. He has managed 1.67 kills and 4.78 assists while guarding the top lane, which is quite high. He has a KDA of 3.05 in this summer split thus far and he is reasonably priced on this slate.
Others to consider: Zoom ($6,400)
LNG has lost some of its early-season form. So has Xx. Still, he has some very good numbers, particularly from a contributory capacity. He has managed in excess of seven assists per game, which is solid since it is crucial for a jungler to aid teammates in their fights and engagements in the lanes.
Others to consider: Kanavi ($7,400)
This is a play to secure the mid laner and ADC combination from JD Gaming in its game against Rogue Warriors. Yagao has used his form to make a fine offensive start to this season. He is averaging 3.44 kills, 2.22 deaths and 6 assists per game along with a KDA of 4.25. He isn’t out of reach either with a price of $7,600.
Others to consider: Faker ($7,400)
The reason Teddy is the most expensive player on this slate is because of his class and skill. Along with that, he has some of the best numbers in the LCK in this young summer season with 4.78 kills, 1.56 deaths and 4.78 assists per game, giving him a KDA of 6.14. He also has a fantastic creep score per minute of 11.04.
Others to consider: Deft ($7,800)
The death rate for support players is extremely high in League of Legends when compared to most other roles while the kill rate is very low. For that reason, a good starting point for fantasy is to pick an inexpensive support player with high assist metrics. Hang fulfills the first criteria at least.
JD Gaming ($5,600)
If you have the budget for a slightly expensive team, JD Gaming is your team. They have proven themselves as one of the best teams in the LPL, having finished as runners up in the spring split. They are far too strong for Rogue Warriors in this matchup.
