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


Captain

Rekkles ($12,000)

After a period of nine games, Rekkles has built his KDA to 8.63. He led the LEC’s regular season in spring in KDA as well. He has consistently put up some staggering numbers this season, a testament to his skill in Summoner’s Rift. His most impressive metrics this split have been killing effectiveness (3.11 per map) and deaths (0.89 per game).

Others to consider: Perkz ($12,600)


Top

Finn ($6,200)

Finn’s problem this season has been his K/D ratio. He currently has two kills and three deaths per map. He has chipped in with 6.56 assists per game, which is quite decent. If he wants to dominate the top lane, he can’t put himself into 1v2 situations. That will allow him a better chance of staying alive long enough to contribute to objectives.

Others to consider: Bwipo ($6,400)


Jungler

Trick ($6,000)

Trick hasn’t done much this split. He has been just about decent from a production standpoint. The majority of his lack of output comes down to his team’s struggles in summer. However, he has an opportunity to improve on his underwhelming KDA of 2.43 when SK face Vitality on Friday.

Others to consider: SelfMade ($7,000)


Mid

Humanoid ($7,600)

Humanoid and Mad Lions have been in unstoppable form in summer. Mad Lions has won seven of nine maps, and Humanoid has played a massive part in that success with 4.33 kills, easily the highest for Mad Lions. He has the second most kills in this season’s LEC, behind only Larssen ($7,800), who is also not a bad option for mid laner.

Others to consider: Larssen ($7,800)


ADC

Hans Sama ($7,400)

If you’re willing to take a small risk with Hans Sama as your bot laner, it opens up plenty of opportunities for the rest of the categories. He is incredibly inexpensive at just $7,400. He has aggregated 36 kills in the LEC so far, fifth highest. Rogue has proved to be quite the competitor this season after a somewhat middling summer split.

Others to consider: Carzzy ($7,800)


Support

Mikyx ($6,200)

As a result of Hans Sama in bot lane, you can draft the most expensive support player here. Mikyx has managed 7.44 assists a game. His kill participation of 8.0 is decent but it’s not reflective of his skill and prowess. He should improve on his overall numbers as this season progresses.


Team

G2 Esports ($5,400)

G2 Esports has had a miserable summer split so far compared to its usual standards. Out of nine games, G2 has won just five. That’s still quite strong. Against a quality Origen team, G2’s price has dropped to just $5,400, which is a fantastic opportunity to draft arguably the best LEC team for a low cost.
