Revisiting the opening day of LPL LoL DFS is the theme tonight, as these four teams are playing their second series of the split, with both series offering potentially tricky decisions.
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown
Both IG and FPX lost their first series, but both also managed to take a game off of slightly superior opponents, making this series one to keep an eye on. IG offers a high ceiling, as they feature some solid young talent, but it was the more seasoned players in Wink and newly named XinLiu that flashed the LoL DFS upside in the opener. Keep an eye out on the Awesemo Ownership projections, as an unpopular IG offers some intrigue in a difficult, but not impossible series to win.
FPX is a team that shouldn’t be underestimated throughout the split, as shown in their opener against EDG, which they could’ve won 2-1, but they dropped game three to mismanagement. Playing with the fervor shown in games two and three make FPX an enticing LoL DFS option on this slate, as FPX appears to match up well with IG, and if they’re successful in getting the series win, xiaolaohu is one of the many interesting TOP lane options on this slate.
Closing out the night is an absolute banger featuring two teams destined for solid playoff seeding when the LPL split comes to a close. WBG looked shaky in their game two loss to IG but nonetheless rallied back to easily take game three in under 29 minutes. Huanfeng was tasked with a more supportive role in WBG’s first series, and even though he has a difficult lane assignment tonight against Viper, any success he finds only helps WBG LoL DFS chances.
Getting challenges early in the LPL split is the theme for EDG, as they find themselves in what should be another competitive series against WBG. Coming off a solid 2-1 series win over FPX, EDG flashed some of their LoL DFS potential, as they averaged 2.6 assists on 14.3 kills per game, and if they manage to maintain that assist total, while getting an uptick in kills, EDG will be a force throughout this split.
MID – Care. Overall FPX weren’t incredibly exciting on the LoL DFS front in their opening series, but with a lane assignment against another potentially aggressive young player in Yuekai, while factoring in Awesemo’s premium projections, makes Care a player to note this slate.
Best Contrarian Pick
TOP – TheShy. Perhaps the most polarizing player in the LPL, TheShy is someone that while capable of underperforming, is someone to always consider if Awesemo’s ownership has him not highly projected, as he’s one of the rare players capable of putting up big LoL DFS scores.Thanks for reading to the end of this article!
