The playoffs for the summer split of both the LPL and the LCS will now move along at a rapid pace. DraftKings has a two-game slate from both leagues on Friday, including FlyQuest against Evil Geniuses and an enticing matchup between Team WE and LGD Gaming. We break down the slate below with some suggestions for each position.

Set your DraftKings lineups here: LOL $60K Shock Blast [$15K to 1st] (LPL-LCS)


Captain

PowerOfEvil ($11,400)

PowerOfEvil had the most kills in the regular season of the LCS. He averaged 4.61 kills with a kill participation of well over 10. That level of production for a mid laner is almost unprecedented in the last few seasons of the LCS. He will carry over his confidence and killing fluency from the regular season into the playoffs.

Others to consider: WildTurtle ($11,700)


Top

Morgan ($6,000)

A two-game slate shouldn’t make price too big a consideration, but it’s still important to look for value at certain positions. Morgan has a little over 2.0 kills and a kill-to-death ratio of under 1.0. Still, there is immense value in this selection because of the price-return relationship. He has even averaged 6.02 assists per game during the regular season.

Others to consider: Solo ($6,400)


Jungler

Santorin ($6,600)

Santorin’s value has been derived from his kill participation, which includes 2.89 kills with 8.89 assists. To add to this impressive offensive output, his defense has also been extremely solid, with just 1.83 deaths per map. He has racked up a terrific KDA of 6.42, which is atypically high amongst junglers.

Others to consider: Peanut ($6,800)


Mid

Teacherma ($7,200)

Teacherma, at this price, should ensure you don’t face any price concerns for the rest of the slate. He had 3.12 kills and 6.93 assists per game, which translates into a high KDA because he also has under 2.5 deaths per map. Plus, he will add incremental value with his farming and creep score.

Others to consider: xiye ($7,400)


ADC

WildTurtle ($7,800)

In a best-of-five, you would want to fill your roster will skilled players because eventually, they will find fluency, which is not always the case in a shorter format like a best-of-one. WildTurtle has been steady right through the summer split for FlyQuest and he will continue to provide value. He had a KDA of 9.64 in the regular season, built on a death rate of just 1.1 per map.

Others to consider: Kramer ($7,600)


Support

IgNar ($5,400)

It’s not a bad idea to stack as much as possible with the might and consistency of FlyQuest. Evil Geniuses won’t be pushed over, but FlyQuest is just a little better in almost all categories, including support due to IgNar. He averaged 9.94 assists during the regular season, highest in the entire LCS.


Team

Team WE ($4,800)

I’ll go for the upset here. Team WE is a surprising underdog in this one. There wasn’t much that separated these two teams in the regular season. Team WE had 9 wins out of 16, while LGD had just one additional win. Also,iIn terms of depth of personnel, Team WE might have a slight edge.
