League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL, 6/10/20
FanDuel is offering League of Legends daily fantasy, and look, if you don't know what that is, it's okay.
I have you covered with a detailed but straightforward primer to get you all set up, whether you're a DFS player looking to dig into the new sport, or a League of Legends fan ready to take your action over to FanDuel.
The LPL Summer Split is officially here and we have League of Legends DFS action back! The LPL is considered to be one of the two best regions in the world, which should bring us high-quality League of Legends on a daily basis. If you want a quick overview of the teams and their rankings, check here. Let's break down the LPL slate for Wednesday, June 10th, and see who stands out. (Just a heads up, the slate locks at 5:00 a.m. EST)
|Implied Win |
|Royal Never Give Up||62.5%||9th|
Another interesting slate where there is one clear favorite -- JD Gaming -- while the other matchup is much closer. This could lead to some rosters opting for a game stack -- from the Vici vs. RNG series -- and impact ownership along the way. If you want to take a look at the starters for each team, check here.
Star - 1.5x Points
Xiaohu, Royal Never Give Up ($7,800) is the starter for RNG and comes in as the cheapest mid-laner on the slate, presenting savings and point-per-dollar value. Xiaohu looked awesome in their first series -- which was a 2-0 win -- where he posted 10 kills, 25 assists, and only 2 deaths. The upside he brings at his price tag cannot be matched on this slate, and he should be able to put up similar numbers in this series. Also, this series appears to be more likely to go all three games, whereas the JD Gaming series could be a sweep.
New, Royal Never Give Up ($7,800) is coming off a very impressive performance in his first series as the top-laner for RNG and still holds a cheaper salary. Over the two games in their first series, he had seven kills and only a single death while carrying a 64% Kill Participation (KP) Rate. If he can continue this level of production, his salary won't stay this low.
Kanavi, JD Gaming ($8,200) and JD Gaming have an implied win probability at 84.8%, yet we find him as the cheapest jungler on the slate. JD Gaming have yet to take the rift in the Summer Split, but they are the reigning LPL Spring Split Champions and shouldn't be priced this low. He held the second-highest Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among LPL junglers in the Spring Split, and you absolutely want him at this price tag in this matchup.
Yagao, JD Gaming ($8,500) is yet another JD Gaming player who is too cheap on this slate. Sure, it needs to be mentioned that they are playing Suning, who have started the Summer Split 2-0 -- a surprise to many fans. But this is the reigning LPL Champions we are talking about, not a team who happens to be on a hot start. Trust Yagao in the mid lane...or even the MVP spot and roster two mids.
iBoy, Vici Gaming ($9,800) and Vici are the underdogs in this matchup versus RNG -- only slightly -- and present themselves as a solid leverage stack. iBoy looked as strong as ever in their first series, posting 17 assists, 6 kills, and only 1 death in their 2-0 sweep over Bilibili Gaming. This would be the series to push towards all three games and that would bring iBoy plenty of upside if you have him in a Vici Gaming stack.
SwordArt, Suning ($7,400) is tied for the cheapest player on the slate and shouldn't be too highly owned. Suning are off to a hot start (no pun intended) and hold a 2-0 record while losing only one game. SwordArt has posted big numbers so far and if they are able to pull off the upset against JD Gaming, you can expect similar production from him. He has a total of 49 assists, 4 kills, and 10 deaths in the five maps they have played in the Summer Split.
JD Gaming ($7,300) are the favorites, the second-cheapest team on the slate, and make a whole lot of sense if you are stacking their players. Respect to Suning and their 2-0 start to the Summer Split, but this is simply too cheap of a price tag for the best team from the Spring Split and arguably one of the best teams in the world.
