Another week of the LCS concludes on Sunday with a round of four games. We’ve got some picks and selections to consider for your DraftKings roster from Sunday’s LCS action.
Curious about when major leagues and events will return? Check out our DraftKings Sports Calendar for the latest updates.
In the absence of Team SoloMid and Evil Geniuses on this slate, Cloud9 should be the stacking target despite expensive prices and a tough fixture against FlyQuest. Zven is the perfect target after a rare sub-par game against Evil Geniuses. He has averaged 4 kills with 5.5 assists per game and has also been killed under once per map.
Others to consider: Nisqy ($12,300)
Hauntzer hasn’t had a great summer season so far. He has been killed an average of 2.7 times per map, which is far too high. However, he was quite solid against Immortals on Saturday despite not being in the best engagement positions for the majority of the game. He is averaging 16.4 DKFP per game, not too bad for this price.
Others to consider: Impact ($6,200)
On any slate that includes Cloud9 it’s never a bad idea to build your roster around players from that team. That means you might have to sacrifice positions like jungler. Not entirely, but at least to an extent. Xmithie is no pushover in the jungle as he is averaging 2.17 kills and 4.17 assists in this summer split.
Others to consider: Broxah ($6,800)
Owning the mid laner and AD Carry from the best team in the LCS is a serious flex. Nisqy hasn’t quite hit his offensive momentum, which is a bit surprising because Cloud9 has continued to dominate. He has managed just 2.6 kills and 8.7 assists per game in this season’s summer split. After a loss on Saturday, expect a better performance from Nisqy on Sunday.
Others to consider: Pobelter ($7,800)
Liquid has been in terrific rhythm this summer. That’s because the team has hardly felt the absence of Doublelift. A lot of credit has to be given to Tactical for staying strong in the bottom lane. He has a KDA of 7.08 with averages of 4 kills and just 1.18 deaths. He even has a creep score of 350, second best in the LCS behind only FBI.
Others to consider: FBI ($7,400)
The third and final player from Cloud9 should be Vulcan. He has aced his 1v2 engagement situations, smartly moving in to help Zven register the kill. His inclusion may have been aided by some smart, inexpensive selections in top and jungler. He has averaged 23.6 DKFP, highest among all support players on this slate.
100 Thieves ($4,200)
I don’t have too many stats or reasons to justify this selection but in the LCS almost every team can beat another. Liquid has enjoyed a sensational season so far but it’s not over yet. 100 Thieves has gotten gradually better as this season has progressed, as well.
