DraftKings’ slates return to two games with the LCK on break on Monday and Tuesday. We break down Monday’s LPL slate with picks to consider from each position for your League of Legends roster.

Slowly but surely, JackeyLove is catching up on his mid laner Knight ($11,700 CP) for most kills in the LPL. JackeyLove is currently averaging 5.94 kills per game over a period of 16 maps after missing the first two games. He has the highest creep score on Top Esports, with 295.44 and gold collection (472 per minute).
Others to consider: Knight ($11,700)
Bin has been steady at the top lane for Suning this split. For starters, he has 2.82 kills per game with a K/D of more than 1 (2.68 deaths). That in of itself provides Suning with plenty of open opportunities to make its way into the opponent’s base. He also had 4.59 assists per game. For this price, he should provide a solid fantasy return.
Others to consider: 369 ($6,400)
On Mondays and Tuesdays in this summer season, you will have the additional liberty for junglers and top laners because most slates are likely to be two games. That restricts the delta between high-cost and low-cost players. As a result, Karsa should not be too hard to draft on this slate. He, like the rest of this Top Esports team, has been excellent at any position in this split.
Others to consider: Weiwei ($6,000)
This is one of the easier picks on this slate. Knight has led the LPL in kills per game (he is the only player in the league to be averaging over six kills per game). He has also built his KDA to 9.92 on account of his death rate of 1.44. These are stellar numbers for one of the best mid laners on the professional League of Legends circuit in Asia.
Others to consider: Angel ($7,400)
I’m slightly surprised that Huanfeng’s price is higher than JackeyLove’s ($7,600). If you have JackeyLove as your Captain, then Huanfeng should be the next best target for bot laner on this slate. Huanfeng has decent, if not flashy, metrics in this summer season. He has a combined KDA of 4.07 and a creep score of 315., while his kill participation is only slightly over 8.
Others to consider: Wings ($7,200)
To complete the roster, you will need at least one inexpensive option. Support should be that category on this slate. Like his team, XinMo has also struggled in summer. In total, he has averaged just 6.9 assists per game with 0.55 kills. He would want better numbers when Bilibili Gaming begins to turn its form around.
Top Esports ($5,600)
If you can make some room for Top Esports on your roster, then you should be able to also create some space between your roster and the rest. Top Esports is the best team in Asia currently. With due respect to Victory Five, especially after a fine start to summer, the squad might not be able to stay abreast with Top Esports.
