With four League of Legends games scheduled for Sunday from the Asian scene, we break down some picks to consider from each position of your DraftKings roster below.
Set your lineups here: LOL $100K Shock Blast [$25K to 1st] (LPL-LCK)
Puff has started well defensively. Keeping your death rate allows you to open so many avenues of contribution in terms of itemization. He has just 1 death per game so far. Offensively, he has been decent, with 3.5 kills and 4.33 assists per game, giving him a kill participation rate of close to 8 with a KDA of 7.83.
Others to consider: Hope ($11,100)
Rascal didn’t have a great series opener. He had 1.67 kills but was also killed 10 times in a three-map matchup. That disparity led to a low yield from a fantasy perspective. Still, he is coming off a solid spring season, in which his production as top laner had a lot to do with a fine performance from Gen.G.
Others to consider: Bin ($6,400)
You will need a relatively inexpensive jungler for better balance. With so many options, you should be spoiled for choice. Ning is one of those choices that could provide a strong return in exchange for an affordable price. Ning has started the summer split with a kill participation rate of close to 10 (3 kills and 6.33 assists per game).
Others to consider: Clid ($6,800)
Bdd had 10 kills in the split opener, leading Gen.G in the previous game. He has been a stable force for Gen.G right through the year, including a solid spring season. His team will rely on him for offensive production, adding gold and kills where possible to pull the game in their favor. He should soon improve on his fantasy average of 50 DKFP.
Others to consider: Rookie ($7,400)
Huanfeng and Suning Gaming are expected to have a good day against Rogue Warriors. That’s largely because of his form this season. In 12 games in this summer split, he has averaged 3.25 kills along with 3.75 assists per game. He is so expensive on this slate because of a perceived matchup advantage.
Others to consider: Hope ($7,400)
Southwind has done his bit so far for Invictus Gaming. He was one of the best support players in the spring season as well. Here, he has averaged 8.5 assists along with 0.5 kills per game. He has managed 49 DKFP per game, which is quite good for a support player.
Invictus Gaming ($5,000)
Invictus Gaming has begun with two series wins out of three and the team has lost two maps so far. Damwon Gaming ($5,600) is the most favored team on this slate but I’d say its price is a bit too high. If you’re looking for value, Invictus might provide a better chance.
