The LCK resumes on Wednesday after a couple of days off. Along with the LPL, there are four games that make up DraftKings’ slate, which includes a $200,000 contest. We break down targets from each position for your roster.
In a decent sample size of 15 games this season, Puff has been in beast mode across the board. His defensive metrics have been impressive considering the pace of the LPL, which is slightly quicker than the LCK. He has averaged 3.53 kills along with 4.07 assists per game but also had just 1.6 deaths a game.
Others to consider: Kramer ($12,000)
Nuguri’s price has taken a massive hit because his team has a tough upcoming fixture against T1, one of the best League of Legends teams in Korea. Damwon Gaming is no pushover either, having won seven of nine games so far in this split. Nuguri has played his part in that prowess with 2.89 kills, 2.67 assists and 5.78 assists per game.
Others to consider: LangX ($6,000)
Gen.G could be a strong stacking target on this slate. The team has won seven of 11 maps in this summer split to date. Clid hasn’t been fantastic, but you can expect steady and consistent returns from him. He has averaged 1.91 kills and 6.91 assists per game. That kill participation rate isn’t bad at all.
Others to consider: Ning ($6,800)
While several teams have undergone widespread changes in the LPL, Invictus Gaming has maintained the core of its roster. Rookie is a huge part of that squad, occupying the middle lane in Summoner’s Rift. Rookie has a KDA of 4.76, highest on his team, thanks to a low death rate and a kill participation rate of close to 10.
Others to consider: Bdd ($7,800)
Kramer is a highly-enticing target on this slate purely because of his stunning split numbers. He has a lofty KDA of 7.81 because of his offensive production of 5.08 kills and 4.54 assists while also keeping an efficient defense. He has almost single-handedly carried LGD to eight map wins in this summer season.
Others to consider: Teddy ($7,800)
An 8-5 map record isn’t great, but LGD has been so incisive in the games it has played that the overall output has been hard to match for any team, apart from Top Esports, in this split. Mark’s numbers are no different. He has averaged 9.31 assists per game while most other support players have struggled to reach 8.
Gen.G started the summer season with a loss, but has quickly bounced back to register three straight wins. The team has been consistent as well, as was evidenced from the spring split. Against Sandbox Gaming, I wouldn’t rule out a comfortable straight maps win.
