Puff has been one of the most effective killing weapons in the LPL. He has most kills for his team, averaging 4.44 during the summer split. He even chipped in with 4.83 assists. He will be relied upon to lead his team through team engagements and produce the kills. That’s majorly why he will be a fine choice for Captain.
Others to consider: Ruler ($11,100)
Doran is such a tempting selection because of his offensive effectiveness. It’s unusual for a top laner to have a kill rate of over three per game. By maintaining that proficiency in team fights, he ensures that his team has the upper hand in all lanes. He even has a creep score of 283, which increases his fantasy value.
Others to consider: TheShy ($6,400)
On League of Legends slates on DraftKings, jungler is probably the category to save some of your average salary remaining but when there is a player that has averaged a kill participation of close to 10 it wouldn’t be a bad idea to make an exception to that rule of thumb. Clid had managed 2.72 kills and 7.14 assists per map in the regular season.
Others to consider: Peanut ($6,600)
While Rookie hasn’t been magnificent from a killing perspective, his steady output could be crucial in a game where his team does have a slight matchup advantage. He has averaged 69.7 DKFP per game. Even though he is the most expensive player on this slate, he is still worth the price.
Others to consider: Bdd ($7,200)
This is probably the most compelling stat for Ruler’s selection. He had the most kills in the LCK, averaging 4.86 kills over a period of 43 maps. That’s even more impressive because the LCK is a slower-paced tournament, compared to the LPL. He even has a KDA of 6.63 with a fantastic creep score of 324.16.
Others to consider: Kramer ($7,200)
Keria has been exceptional at his role this summer. He has led the entire league in assists, putting up 8.91 per map. To do this over 45 games takes some serious skill. DragonX has benefited from that output because it opens up the ability to claim neutral objectives before your opponents and move towards the enemy base.
Invictus Gaming ($5,200)
Even though Invictus Gaming played a five-map thriller against FunPlus Phoenix on Saturday in the regional finals, there will be some momentum carried over from that matchup into this game. It’s hard to argue that Invictus Gaming doesn’t have the better roster either, making this the team to beat on Sunday.
