Captain

JackeyLove ($11,700)

JackeyLove’s price has lowered slightly from Friday’s slate, which makes his selection even more compelling. He has been in tremendous offensive form over the last few months, which will further improve his fantasy value. He has a kill participation rate of close to 15 (3.67 kills and 10 assists per game). He has maintained a desirable death rate of 1.5 too.

Other to consider: Knight ($11,400)


Top

Wunder ($6,000)

The first and most important metric to analyze for a top laner is the K/D ratio. Ideally, that ratio shouldn’t stray too far below 1.0. For Wunder, it’s going the other way. He has averaged 3.29 kills and 2.86 deaths per game. These are terrific numbers for a top laner. He has added a commendable 6.14 assists per game to this at Worlds so far.

Other to consider: Rascal ($6,200)


Jungler

Clid ($6,600)

Clid might need to disengage better to improve his KDA. He has averaged 2.67 kills and 2.67 deaths per map this season. He has a KDA of 3.56 because he has also managed to help his colleagues rack up kills. He has a steady fantasy output of 65.5 DKFP per game too.

Other to consider: Jankos ($6,400)


Mid

Knight ($7,600)

Knight and JackeyLove as a mid laner and bot laner combination is too strong to ignore. That can be a serious flex that could distinguish your roster from the rest. Knight has averaged a decent 4.33 kills and 4.67 assists per game. By his standards, that’s lower than usual. Still, there is enough value in his selection considering the way Top Esports plays.

Other to consider: Caps ($7,000)


ADC

Perkz ($7,200)

Perkz has stood up at Worlds after a sub-par summer split in the LEC. He has averaged 4.0 kills and 7.29 assists per game. This comes after a despondent period in the summer in which he was struggling for any type of momentum. One of his more impressive metrics has been his creep score, which is currently at 307.

Other to consider: Ruler ($7,400)


Support

Mikyx ($5,200)

Mikyx has been quite solid as a support player at Worlds. He has racked up an average of 9.86 assists per game, which has had a direct impact on the success of G2 at this event. He will be an important player for Perkz as well considering a lot of the kill production will have to come from the bottom lane.


Team

Top Esports ($5,600)

If you have the budget, then Top Esports is undoubtedly the best team on this slate. I can’t pick between Gen.G ($5,000) and G2 ($4,800) with any certainty. I can say that Top Esports will be very hard to beat for any team in this tournament.
