Another strong slate and this one features three teams in the top-10 of the preseason rankings. Both matchups have clear favorites, which could push ownership in that direction.
Star - 1.5x Points
Puff, Invictus Gaming ($9,900) is the ADC for IG and is coming off a very strong Spring Split which he will look to build on in the Summer. He ended with the highest Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among ADCs in the LPL, the highest average kills per game, and the 10th-fewest average deaths per game. Invictus Gaming have yet to take the rift in the Summer Split, but expect the same level of production from him in this matchup.
TheShy, Invictus Gaming ($8,500) was one of the most volatile players in the LPL Spring Split, but that brings an immense amount of upside. Of course, there is plenty of risk here -- so we'll touch on everything. Among top-laners in the LPL, TheShy averaged 3.28 kills per game -- the highest among full-time starters. TheShy also averaged 4.13 deaths per game -- which as you might be able to guess, were the most at his position. Embrace that range of outcomes and he can lead you to the top of the leaderboard.
beishang, Team WE ($8,300) comes in as the underdog in this series, but not by much. Also, they are sitting at 8th in the preseason rankings, so it's not like they are a weak team. Just because Invictus Gaming are "better" doesn't mean you can't look to Team WE as viable fantasy options. In fact, beishang is one of the best options from Team WE. During the Spring Split, he finished in the top 10 for KDA, highest average assists per game, highest average kills per game, and the fewest average deaths per game.
Fenfen, eStar ($8,900) is a bit of a question mark in the Mid lane, but should you look to him in your fantasy lineups? The short answer is yes. The long answer has to do more the matchup against Dominus Esports, the 15th-ranked team in some preseason rankings. The Mid-Laner for Dominus is Twila, who doesn't have a ton of experience and surrounded by a weak team. Fenfen also doesn't have a ton of experience, but the team around him is much stronger and should be on the winning side.
Wink, eStar ($10,200) is the one to trust from eStar. If Fenfen is a question mark, Wink is carved in stone. He is a pillar of consistency and finished in the top-five among ADCs in the Spring Split for KDA, highest average assists per game, highest average kills per game, and the top 6 for the fewest average deaths per game. If there is one answer on this slate, Wink is right choice.
Missing, Team WE ($7,500) is the second-cheapest player on the slate, and since you need to be rostering players form at least three teams, he could be the one to pick. As noted above, Team WE are good, and they can certainly stand tall against Invictus Gaming. Missing and his ADC Jiumeng ($9,600) have actually found their way into some preliminary roster builds due to their prices and potential leverage they bring.
eStar ($7,800) are worth paying up for on this slate, as they offer the most consistency and safety for your lineups. The idea of paying up for a team isn't great, but with how heavy of a favorite they are, the sweep potential is there at a bit of a higher percentage compared to Invictus Gaming.
