There are four relatively unattractive underdogs on this LoL DFS slate headlined by two winless teams in BRO and WE, and with tough but fair pricing tonight is a test of lineup construction. Let’s get into some DraftKings LoL DFS picks for Friday, July 15.
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Slate Breakdown
Winning only a single game in their first eight games doesn’t paint a great picture for BRO, and while it’s still very likely they get a series win at some point, almost half the season is complete. Recently, BRO is trying out a few things strategically, but against what should be a motivated NS, getting to them in LoL DFS is a tough ask.
Changes for the NS roster show up in the form of another veteran support in SnowFlower, and keeping an eye on his status could be important, as if he starts, he’s cheaper than Effort, and could be lower owned. NS needs this series, and should win 2-0, and while they can be LoL DFS relevant tonight, it’s entirely possible they grind out a series win, especially if they go with their new roster.
Not often does a LoL DFS slate feature two winless teams this deep into the season, but WE joins BRO tonight, with WE having the much more difficult opponent in JDG. WE needs a ton to go right here, but JDG leaks games, with all but two series going the distance, and at their prices, all WE might need is one big game to make a splash in LoL DFS on this slate.
Strictly looking at how JDG projects tonight tells the story of how this series most likely goes, and even though JDG drops a ton of single games, they still score well on average. JDG is very expensive tonight, and with not much jumping off the page from the underdogs, getting to Hope in a plus matchup could be more difficult than expected.

Even though not every team has completed their first round robin of the LCK, this series officially kicks off the back half of the split as surprise LSB takes on HLE. In terms of how the first half of the split went, LSB only lost to what many consider the three best teams in GEN, T1, and DK, and even though the new HLE roster looked improved, getting to any Prince tonight in LoL DFS against a still largely untested Cheoni is appealing.

Outside of game three, HLE was very competitive against T1, while thoroughly smashing them in game two. Performances like that could make HLE a sneaky target in the back half of the LCK split, with Karis taking on another talented young player in Clozer in what could be an explosive mid lane tonight.
ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP
Closing this LoL DFS slate is the best series in terms of talent on both sides with RNG taking on a slumping LNG. At their best, RNG can run circles around most LPL teams, including LNG, but they’ve been shaky, dropping a game to WE, and also only having one 2-0 series up to this point. Xiaohu against Doinb is one of many possible marquee lane assignments tonight, and with the form Doinb is in, Xiaohu could take advantage, putting in a big LoL DFS night.
Looking at underdogs tonight is a real test, and with LNG being clearly the most talented of the underdogs, how their ownership will shake out is something to keep an eye on. Tarzan doesn’t have the chemistry this year with Doinb, as their styles tend to clash, nonetheless the talent is always there, and with few cheap options tonight, perhaps he can be the catalyst to an LNG upset.
Best LoL DFS Pick
JNG-Kanavi. Being the biggest favorites of the night, JDG and Kanavi have everything setup to put up strong LoL DFS performances.
Best Contrarian LoL DFS Pick
ADC-Light. None of the underdogs are particularly appealing, nonetheless getting to LNG tonight can offer some different LoL DFS builds with favorites, in a still winnable series for them.
