Two regular season weeks remain in the LPL, and this Monday night LoL DFS slate features four teams either vying for better playoff positioning, or just trying to get into the picture at all.
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Slate Breakdown
One week ago it’d be preposterous to think about AL not being a playoff team, but after a loss to OMG, AL finds themselves in a precarious position with four teams with playoffs already locked in left to play. AL has shown flashes, making them capable of beating RNG, and if they do manage to pull off the upset, their LoL DFS prevalence is likely to be high, and low owned, as they average 2.6 assists per kill this LPL split.
ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP
RNG clinching playoffs changes little in terms of motivation, as top two is still in the picture, with three bottom half LPL teams left to play after this series. Top to bottom RNG projects very well tonight, as even though AL is a middling team in terms of deaths per game, four of their 13 losses are 20+ death games, making Xiaohu an incredibly intriguing option tonight.

Losing to IG in the manner that happened paints an incredibly difficult picture for the chances of UP, as even if it was an uphill battle for playoffs, few teams offer a better first step than IG. Battling against another struggling team in FPX is unlikely to be the remedy to get them back on track, but the talent still frustratingly flashes from time to time, and with side selection tonight, H4cker could beat his projection if he takes advantage of a poor performing Clid.
Also sitting on the outside of the playoff picture after some exciting early LPL wins, FPX finds themselves in an unenviable position of needing at least two wins in their final three series to advance. FPX is the more capable team this split, and while Clid isn’t playing well this split, an opportunity against H4cker could not only be what is needed to get a good result, but it also opens the door to being LoL DFS relevant.
Best LoL DFS Pick
ADC-Gala. Even though RNG can lose this series, they’re still the more enticing LoL DFS option tonight, as they lead the slate in kills per game, with Gala being a consistent performer, capable of big scores.
Best Contrarian LoL DFS Pick
ADC-Elk. Flashing plenty of talent during his stint at WE, Elk hasn’t demonstrated much this LPL split, nonetheless he remains a capable player that should be on LoL DFS radars.
