Captain

Jeskla ($12,300)

Jeskla has been a reliable offensive weapon for Mousesports this year. In 65 games in 2020, he has generated 3.82 kills per game along with 5.86 assists per game. That takes his KDA to a dependable 4.31. He even has a creep score of 284. Mousesports also has the matchup advantage in this game, making Jeskla’s selection as Captain even more compelling.

Others to consider: Hjarnan ($12,000)


Top

Pride ($6,000)

Fnatic Rising has played 49 games this year. That’s quite a large sample size to analyze a player’s production. Pride has racked up an astounding 3.88 kills per game. For a top laner, that is an incredible return. He has a kill participation of over 10 and a death rate of just 2.22 per map. And he is priced at just $6,000.

Others to consider: Tolkin ($6,800)


Jungler

Zanzarah ($6,400)

Zanzarah has built quite an impressive kill participation, at least by jungler standards. With a kill participation of over 10 and an average of 2.77 deaths per map, he has earned his KDA of 3.77. Although I haven’t seen much of the Ultraliga this year, these stats indicate that his flanking game has improved in team fights.

Others to consider: Dan ($6,200)


Mid

Lider ($8,000)

Spending $8,000 on a mid laner seems a bit high but it’s worth the expense for Lider. He has enjoyed a stunning year so far, as he leads Mousesports in kills with 4.92 per game. He does average just 4.51 assists per game, which indicates his preference for leading engagements. He has been thoroughly dominant in the Prime League Pro Division this year.

Others to consider: Nite ($7,600)


ADC

Hjarnan ($8,000)

Hjarnan has continued to stay consistent in Germany’s Prime League. He has predictably been the most proficient player for his team this year, with a team-leading KDA of 4.62. He has 3.95 kills per game, a metric he would like to improve on. He also leads GamerLegion in gold collection, picking up close to 14,000 gold units per map.

Others to consider: Jezu ($7,400)


Support

Bravado ($5,000)

A support player’s most important analysis point is assist rate. Bravado has racked up 11.43 assists per game, which is tremendous by any standards. He has added 1.31 kills to that, carrying his KDA to 5.78. For just $5,000, these numbers are far too good to pass up.


Team

Vodafone Giants ($4,400)

With all these high-priced selections, you will need value in a few categories, including this one. Vodafone Giants has played a combined 51 games in Spain’s LVP SLO and the European Masters this year, and the team has won 38 of those maps. The LVP SLO, Spain’s premier League of Legends tournament, is quite competitive.
