The LCK is back after a two-day break. Four games across the LPL and the LCK constitute DraftKings’ main slate on Wednesday. Here is a look at some players to consider from each position for your roster.

Set your DraftKings lineup here: LCK-LPL $70K Double Buff [$20K to 1st]


Lwx ($12,300)

Lwx has been in stunning early-season form in the bottom lane for FunPlus Phoenix. He currently has 6.22 kills per game, the second-highest in the LPL behind only JackeyLove. He has a kill participation of exactly 10 (6.22 kills and 3.78 assists per game) with a KDA of 6.92 and a creep score of 9.82 per minute.

Others to consider: Ghost ($11,100)


Khan ($6,200)

I really like Nuguri ($6,600) because he has the potential to be the best top laner in the LPL, but his price is a bit too high considering Lwx would be my Captain. As a result, I’d go around to the best team of the LCK for my top laner. Khan has struggled a touch, putting up low offensive returns of just 2 kills and 4.71 assists per map, but these will improve soon.

Others to consider: Nuguri ($6,600)


Haro ($6,400)

Rogue Warriors is not the best team in the LPL, nowhere near that actually. However, Haro has been excellent in the jungle, producing a team-leading 2.73 kills per map along with 3.73 assists. He is also one of only three players in Rogue Warriors to have played all 11 maps so far. He is averaging 34.4 DKFP per game.

Others to consider: H4cker ($5,800)


ShowMaker ($7,200)

For a while now, ShowMaker has been one of the most efficient mid laners in the LCK. His defensive effectiveness has helped Damwon Gaming win so many fights because he is able to disengage, recover and go again in a slightly more advantageous position. As expected, he has a team-low 1.57 deaths per game, with 3 kills and 6.14 assists in spring.

Others to consider: Doinb ($8,000)


Wink ($7,600)

Wink has the best KDA (6.38) on Invictus Gaming this season because of his defensive proficiency (he is averaging 1.44 deaths per game). He has managed 3.78 kills per game with 5.44 assists, which are solid kill participation numbers. He also has an advantageous matchup against a team that has struggled in the lanes this season.

Others to consider: Ghost ($7,400)


ShiauC ($4,400)

I’d prefer to spend a bit more on Team than Support on this slate. ShiauC can act as a hedge in case FunPlus Phoenix is too aggressive in team fights. Despite eStar having split the 10 maps played so far, ShiauC has been reliable, racking up 8.4 assists per game so far.


Invictus Gaming ($5,600)

There is just too much fluidity on Rogue Warriors ($4,200) currently. The team has used seven players already. In 11 maps played, RW has won just two. Invictus Gaming is well-positioned to capitalize on that inefficiency and improve its current win percentage of just over 50.
