The best League of Legends LPL 2022 LoL DFS picks tonight, with expert DraftKings fantasy projections & LoL starting lineups today (8/9/22)

On one side of the coin is the LCK with two big favorites, and on the other side is the LPL with also two pretty big favorites, making this LoL DFS slate a potentially tricky navigation.

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK  Slate Breakdown

FREDIT BRION

BRO season is once again in hiatus as they were unable to maintain any momentum, dropping the series against DK 0-2. Perhaps BRO finds more success against a struggling DRX, and at their ownership perhaps it’s worth sprinkling them in, however, the most likely result is another loss, with Lava being someone that needs to shine for BRO to have a better chance.

DRX

Losers of three straight, DRX find themselves in a must-win over BRO as they currently sit on the edge of the playoff picture. Fortunately for DRX, a series against BRO is likely just what the doctor ordered, and while there is likely a nice floor for DRX, in the first meeting DRX only managed to put up 21 kills, albeit, in two 40-minute games, the LoL DFS output could be less than players desire from an expensive team.

Kicking off the LPL side of this LoL DFS slate is a seemingly one sided contest as TES takes on RA. TES is on a nine series win streak, albeit each of the last four series needed to go to three games, but the good news is that TES were facing off against much better teams in that stretch. Knight has a nearly 80% kill participation, and in a plus matchup tonight against RA, he projects very highly in the LoL DFS sphere.

RARE ATOM

On the other end of the table is RA, who are coming off a series against BLG which either of the three games could’ve gone either direction, with the series prior also flashing what RA can do, taking a game off JDG. Unfortunately RA is running into a buzzsaw tonight, but if they get the big upset, they’re a team averaging 17.5 kills in victories, with Leyan having some potential in that scenario.

NONGSHIM REDFORCE

With time running out in the LCK split, the seemingly talented NS roster keeps putting up disappointing performance after disappointing performance. Tonight against what should be a motivated DK provides NS few outs to be LoL DFS relevant, however with them carrying extremely low ownership, taking chances on the talents of Bdd could be fruitful if NS pull off the upset.

DAMWON KIA

Steady risers in the LCK rankings, DK find themselves on the cusp of a top-two spot for playoffs, and if they are to achieve that, beating NS is a must. In terms of LoL DFS prospects, Kellin is one of the best options, as not only does he lead DK with an impressive 80.3% kill participation (KP), he’s a support on a team that should win 2-0, which always helps out the outlook from the support position.

BILIBILI GAMING

Still one of the more frustrating rosters in the LPL, BLG is slowly working their way back into the playoff picture as winners of their last two, and while tonight will be very difficult, they have some outs. Newcomer Rise hasn’t had the impact BLG, or himself would like, looking like a rookie in all aspects of the games, and with Gala being one of, if not the best LPL ADC, any success BLG will have almost certainly requires him to have a solid series.

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP

RNG is an incredibly potent, and scary LPL team, while also being one of the more exciting LoL DFS teams, as they’re currently top five LPL teams in kills. Top to bottom RNG is a clear favorite tonight, but that was also the case in the previous two series wins which saw them drop games to WE and LNG. Wei is a player capable of dictating games alongside Xiaohu, and in a series RNG can’t afford to overlook, both offer LoL DFS upside in a win.

Best Pick

JNG-Tian. Having a renaissance season, Tian finds himself in a strong position against a lesser team in RA to have a fantastic LoL DFS night in a series TES is strongly favored.

Best Contrarian Pick

MID-FoFo. Neither of the recent wins from BLG have looked particularly strong, and their chances to beat RNG aren’t high, nonetheless taking a shot on the BLG veteran mid-laner opens the door to more interesting LoL DFS lineups tonight, while also carrying legitimate substitution risk.

I've been following and playing League of Legends for a decade now. Few things get my blood pumping more than a good ol' midnight LPL DFS sweat. I follow each of the four major regions of LoL in the LCK,LCS,LEC and LPL and each one has its own unique flair. Hopefully we can all learn a little bit about LoL DFS and best of luck in your contests! If you want additional fun stuff feel free to follow me @pickemgenius on twitter.
