The LPL Summer Split is officially here, and we have League of Legends DFS action! Let's break down the LPL slate for Tuesday, June 23rd, and see who stands out. (Just a heads up, the slate locks at 5:00 a.m. EST). Here are the starting lineups for the LPL.
|Team||Match Record||Map Record|
The JD Gaming versus Dominus Esports matchup couldn't be more lopsided, while we should have a much closer matchup with Invictus Gaming versus LGD Gaming.
Star - 1.5x Points
Kanavi, JD Gaming ($8,600) has been a roller coaster of production in the Summer Split. With 75 FanDuel points, 11, and 54, there is inconsistency for Kanavi in the jungle. That can all change against Dominus Esports, who see all of their players sitting in the bottom 16 of the entire league for worst Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) in the Summer Split.
The jungle is a high-impact position -- naturally, it has plenty of upside -- and rostering Kanavi in the Star spot will amplify that even more in this series.
Langx, LGD Gaming ($7,900) comes in with the fourth-highest KDA (4.19) among top laners in the LPL and has a chance to improve that. This is going to be a very close series against Invictus Gaming, as they are tied with a 3-1 record. On the opposite side of Langx, we will see TheShy ($8,400), who averages the second-most deaths per game (4.11), along with holding the fourth-lowest (1.54) KDA among top laners.
With an almost coin-flip series on our hands, side with Langx, who is remarkably more consistent compared to TheShy.
Ning, Invictus Gaming ($8,300) comes in on a three-game winning streak, and oddly enough, he has been producing big numbers in each game. Ning has posted 66 FanDuel points or more in three straight while having a total of 11 deaths in their last seven maps played. He has the seventh-highest (4.56) KDA among junglers in the LPL and is averaging the sixth-most (2.89) kills per game.
He's an all-around great option, who will be very involved in a series that should go to a full three games.
Yagao, JD Gaming ($9,200) hasn't posted eye-popping numbers in his two most recent series, but this matchup versus Dominus Esports is not one you should be passing on. JD Gaming are the reigning Spring Split Champions and are off to a slower start in the Summer, which should turn around now facing Dominus, who are 0-4 with a map record of 0-8.
Dominus Esports sit at the bottom of the standings and come in as massive underdogs in this matchup. Trust the talent and pedigree of JD Gaming via Yagao on this slate.
LokeN, JD Gaming ($9,300) is in the same situation as Yagao mentioned above. His production isn't top-tier, but this is a one-sided matchup you should look to jump on. We see LokeN with 61 FanDuel points or more in two of his three series this split, and if they pull off the sweep against Dominus Esports, we should be looking at a new high-water mark for his production this split.
Southwind, Invictus Gaming ($7,600) is the second-most expensive support on the slate but is worth paying up for. He comes in with the fourth-best KDA among supports in the LPL and finds himself in a matchup versus LGD Gaming, which is primed to go all three games. The price tag isn't amazing, but Southwind comes in with 68 assists and only 8 deaths in his last three series.
LGD Gaming ($7,300) comes in as the second-cheapest team on the slate and are being viewed as the underdog versus Invictus Gaming. LGD have posted 45 FanDuel points or more in each of their three wins while posting 24 FanDuel points in their loss. Both teams hold a record of 3-1, and if this series is going to be a coin flip, take the cheaper team.
