Curious about when major leagues and events will return? Check out our DraftKings Sports Calendar for the latest updates.


Captain

Jiumeng ($11,700)

Jiumeng has been the most potent offensive weapon for Team WE by a distance. He has averaged 4.33 kills per game along with 6.13 assists, so his offensive game has remained strong. He even has a KDA of 4.4. This production is the reason he has been able to average 86.6 DKFP per game, highest among all players in this slate.

Others to consider: Teacherama ($11,400)


Top

Holder ($5,800)

Holder has been killed far too often this split. Part of that comes down to the desperation needed to win team fights in disadvantageous engagements. As a result, he has been killed an average of 4.16 times per map. His killing proficiency has been steady, adding 2.79 kills and 5.42 assists. He has managed 41.6 DKFP per game, not too bad for a top laner that has been struggling.

Others to consider: LangX ($6,200)


Jungler

Peanut ($6,800)

With 2.43 kills and 6.9 assists, Peanut’s kill participation rate has been quite strong. He hasn’t put himself into losing fight situations, which has resulted in a decent death rate of a little over 2.0. Against a Rogue Warriors team that is near the bottom, Peanut should fancy his flanking chances from the jungle.

Others to consider: Beishang ($7,200)


Mid

Teacherama ($7,600)

Teacherama’s stability in the middle lane has allowed Team WE’s jungler and bot laner to remain aggressive. That’s an invaluable asset for any team to have. He has 2.92 kills but has helped his colleagues with 7.21 assists every map. Other metrics, like creep score (260) and gold collection (12,700), are strong as well.

Others to consider: Xiye ($7,400)

ADC

Kramer ($7,400)

If Jiumeng ($7,800) isn’t your Captain, then he should at least be in this category. Kramer is the second-best choice for bot laner in this slate. Apart from a strong matchup advantage, Kramer has some majestic summer numbers. With 4.1 kills a game, he has easily led LGD Gaming in offensive production. He also leads LGD in CSPM (9.54) and gold collection per minute (442).

Others to consider: ZWuji ($7,000)


Support

Ley ($5,200)

Instead of an expensive support player and inexpensive team, I’d go the other way in this slate because there is a degree of certainty about Team WE. As a result, Ley should fit well into your requirements. Ley has even averaged 9.0 assists per map for a team that has lost 17 of 22 games in summer.


Team

Team WE ($5,600)

Team WE has been solid and reliable right through this split. Only five players have been needed, which is always a sign of consistency. The team has also won 15 of 24 maps in this split to date. That should increase against a stumbling LNG Esports team.
