The LPL and LCK roll on with another five games from both leagues on Sunday. Here is a breakdown of DraftKings’ slate with some suggestions to consider for your fantasy roster from the five-game slate.
Ghost has the second-lowest death rate in KIA DWG at 1.5 per game. For a bottom-laner to have such a low death rate is crucial because it increases a player’s KDA considerably. Ghost has a kill participation of 8.75 (4.5 kills and 4.25 assists), which is quite low in comparison to his counterparts in the LPL. However, his KDA is 5.83, much higher than many in the LPL. That’s where his value lies.
Others to consider: y4 ($12,300)
A price of $6,600 is a little more than the ideal expenditure for top-laner, but Khan is worth the cost. Khan used Fizz and Sion as his champions to rack up a combined KDA of 10/5/11 against Sandbox in the previous game. Form is clearly not a concern for him. He has an overall KDA of 3.6 and a creep score of 266 in spring so far.
Others to consider: Cube ($5,600)
LNG Esports has been a pleasant surprise this season. Tarzan has been no different. He has a stellar kill participation of over 8.5 (2.64 kills and 5.93 assists per map) with just 1.79 deaths. This level of efficiency in each individual metric has earned him a team-leading KDA of 4.8. All this for the price of just $6.6K.
Others to consider: H4cker ($6,000)
There is a tinge of regret for leaving out ShowMaker ($7,600) on this slate but Cryin’s form and confidence are too compelling to ignore. He has a team-low death rate (1.67 per map) along with a kill participation of 10.86. He even has a creep score per minute of 9 and gold collection of 13.8k. He is averaging 85 DKFP per game.
Others to consider: ShowMaker ($7,600)
If you have the budget, then this position is a toss-up between Deft and y4 ($8,200). I reckon eStar will be a trickier opponent for V5 than Liiv Sandbox would be for Hanwha Life Esports. Their kill rate is about the same in any case. Deft has averaged 4.58 kills and 4.84 assists at a KDA of 4.84.
Others to consider: y4 ($8,200)
Lwandy has the second-best KDA in LNG Esports this season. For a Support, that is quite startling because this position usually involves a lot of deaths. Lwandy has averaged 8.43 assists with just 1.93 deaths. Effectiveness in these two metrics is his unique selling proposition.
eStar has lacked some offensive firepower in the lanes in this split after the departure of some key players. Still, the team has six wins in 17 maps, which isn’t awful. It is likely that eStar will lose this series but a map win could still provide sufficient fantasy value.
