The LCK’s regular season resumes on Thursday after a long weekly break. Two games make up DraftKings’ main slate on Thursday. We’ve got picks and considerations for your LCK roster.

Set your DraftKings lineups here: LOL $60K Shock Blast [$15K to 1st] (LCK)


Captain

Ruler ($11,700)

Ruler is the LCK leader in kills this summer. He is averaging 4.72 kills per game along with 5.11 assists and just 1.64 deaths, giving him a KDA of 6. He even has a creep score of 323. These stunning returns are reason enough to pick him as Captain. However, there is also the compelling reason of having an advantageous matchup in this game.

Others to consider: Bdd ($11,400)


Top

Canna ($6,400)

At $6.4K, Canna makes for a strong top laner because of his killing proficiency. He has been averaging a stellar 3.4 kills. He has a KDA of 4.95 with just 1.69 deaths per game. These are mid or bot laner numbers. That differential value could significantly boost your fantasy roster on this slate.

Others to consider: Rascal ($6,600)


Jungler

Spirit ($6,200)

You will need at least one inexpensive choice in your roster. That could be Spirit because he also makes for a decent hedging play in case T1 don’t find the nexus first. That allows you to cover most bases in terms of the outcome. Spirit has a kill participation of close to 9 but he could improve on his death rate.

Others to consider: OnFleek ($6,000)


Mid

Bdd ($7,600)

This isn’t a very hard choice because Bdd isn’t even that expensive at just $7.6K. He has been averaging 3.61 kills per game along with 1.5 deaths. He has a KDA of 6.26 - highest on Gen.G - with a creep score per minute of 8.83. He should have a field day out against a struggling Sandbox Gaming team.

Others to consider: Fly ($6,800)


ADC

Teddy ($7,600)

After Ruler, Teddy has the next highest kill total in the LCK. He has been averaging solid numbers right through the summer, including 4.57 kills. He has been killed an average of 1.2 times per map, so low that his KDA has risen to 8.02 - second highest in the LCK. He even has the highest creep score in the league with 356 per map.

Others to consider: Mystic ($7,200)


Support

Effort ($5,400)

Compared to usual League of Legends standards, the mid and bot laner above are quite cheap. That should mean that you have the luxury of drafting a relatively expensive support player like Effort. He has earned a high KDA of 4.14 with 2.12 deaths and 7.97 assists per game, indicative of strong assistance to his AD Carry right through the split.


Team

Gen.G ($5,600)

Gen.G is currently third in the LCK standings having won 11-of-15 series and 25-of-36 maps. Sandbox Gaming, on the other hand, has won just 6-of-15 series and 13-of-34 maps. That difference is massive from a statistical and confidence perspective.
