Another week of the LEC is upon us. Friday will see a whole round of fixtures, including some delectable games. We’ve got players and considerations for your DraftKings League of Legends roster below.
We should see a renewed G2 team this weekend after that unbelievable comeback win against Rogue. G2 was struggling but that turnaround should inspire the roster with so much confidence. Perkz needed that, too. He has just 2.82 kills and 3.91 assists per game, but I suspect that game will be the change in momentum he desperately required.
Others to consider: Caps ($12,000)
Dan Dan ($5,400)
Due to a comparative lack of offensive production coupled with Misfits’ poor form this season, Dan Dan’s price has dropped significantly. That presents an opportunity to draft a reliable top laner for a cheap price. He has 2 kills and 3.38 assists per game, which is not bad. He has managed 16.1 DKFP per game.
Others to consider: Bwipo ($6,400)
Mad Lions has been so dominant, so explosive that even Xerxe’s price has plummeted for this slate. Yes, Mad Lions is in some terrific form, but Origen and Xerxe are no pushovers. He will look to improve on his low kill rate of just 1.46 per game. Considering Mad Lions’ aggressive template, he will get his fair share of opportunities to do that.
Others to consider: SelfMade ($7,000)
Through all the turmoil that G2 has had to endure in summer, Caps has shone through as a bright light. He comfortably leads G2 in kills with 4.08 per game. No other player from his team has managed over three kills per map. He even has the best KDA in G2 with 3.56. That should make him an easy choice for mid laner if there are no budgetary constraints.
Others to consider: Humanoid ($7,600)
After a terrific spring split, Rekkles seems to have lost the spotlight with some mediocrity this season. Still, he has some strong numbers, including KDA (8.5), deaths per game (1.08) and assists (6.15). He will want to improve on his killing proficiency though, which currently stands at 3 per map.
Others to consider: Carzzy ($7,800)
This isn’t exactly a stacking play from Misfits, at least that’s not the primary reason. But Doss does seem to have a lot of factors in his favor, including price and fantasy output. He has 5.77 assists per game, but he has been killed far too often at 3.15 times per map - highest on his team. Improve that and results will change.
Somehow, Fnatic is staying over .500 for the season. Currently, the team is 7-6. However, there has been a change in momentum. Even though Rogue is a quality all-round team, Fnatic has proved repeatedly that there is enough skill and experience to get through tricky situations.
