The Mad Lions have had a sensational summer split so far, having won six of seven games. Carzzy has led that proficiency with 4.14 kills and 6.57 assists per game. He has a KDA of 5.36, built on a low death rate as well. He has averaged 27.2 DKFP per game. Interestingly, he has a low creep score, by bot laner standards.
Others to consider: Rekkles ($12,600)
Alphari’s K/D ratio is impressive. For a top laner to have this effectiveness offensively is a massive boost. Alphari has 2.29 kills and 6 assists per game, but importantly, he has been killed an average of 1.43 times per map. That creates so many opportunities for Origen. His average of 23.7 DKFP per game is the highest for top laners in this slate.
Others to consider: Bwipo ($6,600)
Inspired is a hedging target. Origen, on paper, is the better team, but Rogue possess some real quality through their roster. Inspired has been decent this split. Firstly, he has a K/D of above 1 (1.86 kills and 1.57 deaths per game). He also had 6.71 assists a game. Most importantly, his affordable price opens up options.
Others to consider: SelfMade ($6,800)
G2 Esports has lost three of seven games in this split, which is one of the most surprising results of the season. They will be desperate to return back to normalcy this weekend. Caps is a big part of that offense for G2. He has managed just 2.71 kills with 6 assists this season. That’s quite low by his usual lofty standards.
Others to consider: Nemesis ($7,600)
If you’re looking to splurge on the bot laner, which isn’t a bad idea in fantasy League of Legends, then Rekkles should be the target. Firstly, Fnatic will be keen to put a bad second week behind them this weekend. Secondly, Rekkles has been a fantastic player for Fnatic right through this year. He has a kill participation rate of 7.43 and a KDA of 6.5 in this split.
Others to consider: Upset ($7,600)
Hylissang hasn’t quite been his best yet. However, he has a fantastic opportunity to turn that form around against SK Gaming on Friday. He has just 0.14 kills and 4.43 deaths this split, not great in either metric. But he also has 5.29 assists in seven games in summer.
Excel Esports ($4,600)
You will probably need to save plenty on your team. Excel Esports presents that opportunity. They have struggled, with just two wins out of seven. No player has a KDA of more than 3. Against Vitality, though, they will fancy their chances of finding a win.
