With the LCK on its weekly break, Monday’s League of Legends action sees just two games from the LPL. Below, we break down some inclusions to consider from each position for your DraftKings roster.

Jiumeng has comfortably led Team WE in kills with an average of 4.48 per game. He has the most kills in the LPL’s summer season so far because he has played more games (21 in total). Against Dominus Esports, you would expect that confidence and momentum to influence objective collection in a big way.
Others to consider: Loken ($11,400)
From an offensive perspective, Zoom has been terrific this split. He has put up 3.59 kills per game in 17 games for JD Gaming. That dominance in the top lane opens up so many options, including early inhibitor access. That just throws the opponent’s base wide open with the turrets down. He even has 6.24 assists per map.
Others to consider: Morgan ($6,400)
In terms of value for money, I’d say Kanavi is slightly better than Beishang ($7,000). For starters, Kanavi has a kill participation rate of well over 10 (3.12 kills and 7.47 assists). He has a KDA of 4.74, which is quite high for a jungler. He has even averaged 73.4 DKFP per game.
Others to consider: Beishang ($7,000)
There needn’t be any hesitation with this pick. Teacherma isn’t overly expensive. Team WE has an advantageous matchup. And Teacherma has been quite solid in the middle lane. He has averaged 2.95 kills and 7.19 assists in this summer season to date. He has also maintained a KDA of 4.02 and a creep score per minute of 7.63.
Others to consider: Yagao ($7,400)
If Jiumeng ($7,800) isn’t your Captain, then he could definitely fill this ADC category. If he is, then Loken should be here. Loken has led JD Gaming in almost all metrics. He has most kills (4.47 per game), fewest deaths (1.59 per game), best KDA (6.93), highest cold collection (13.6k per game) and highest creep score (285).
Others to consider: Hope ($7,200)
Generally in two-game slates you have more luxury to spend on support and team because the delta between highest and lowest prices in most categories isn’t high. LvMao has led JD Gaming in assists (9.65 per game). He has even done an admirable job in helping his bot laner out.
Team WE ($5,600)
Team WE has won 13 of 21 maps in this split so far, including wins against some of the best teams in the league. Against Dominus Esports, the skill and depth of Team WE should be too much. This might go to a third map but Team WE should cruise through in any case.
