League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL/LCK, 6/24/20
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 LCK Summer Split is officially here, and we have League of Legends DFS action! Let's break down the LPL/LCK slate for Wednesday, June 24th, and see who stands out. (Just a heads up, the slate locks at 4:00 a.m. EST).
Here are the starting lineups for the LPL. Generally, the LCK doesn't release starting lineups prior to the games.
|Team||Match Record||Map Record|
|Oh My God||1-4||4-8|
A look at the four teams from the LPL on this slate, where Top Esports come in as an overwhelming favorite. The LNG Esports versus OMG matchup could be a bit of coin-flip
|Team||Match Record||Map Record|
The LCK could see both series go to a full three games and present some upside if you choose to stack those teams.
Star - 1.5x Points
knight, Top Esports ($9,100) has looked amazing so far in the LPL Summer Split and finds himself as a massive favorite against Bilibili Gaming. Top Esports are in the elite-tier of the LPL, holding a 4-0 record with a map record of 8-1. In those four wins, we have seen knight post 85 FanDuel points or more in each series.
He comes in with a total of 57 kills and 17 deaths through nine maps played, an unbelievable ratio -- which presents him with a massive ceiling of points. Top Esports will dominate this matchup and we will see plenty of knight along the way.
chenlun17, LNG Esports ($8,500) is a viable option in the top lane on this slate and should be able to come away with the win against OMG. LNG are a middle of the road team who could end up fighting for a playoff spot. Their opponent, OMG, are sitting near the bottom of the standings with a 1-4 record.
chenlun17's game log is very clear and shows the basic rule of fantasy production in LoL. Players post more points when they win. In their two wins, he has 68 and 89 FanDuel points. In their two losses, he has 23 and 20 FanDuel points. With the matchup in favor of LNG, we should expect the higher end of outcomes on this slate.
BonO, KT Rolster ($8,300) isn't off to the best start in the LCK Summer Split, but has a winnable matchup versus Hanwha. KT Rolster are a good team -- finished the Spring Split in fifth place -- but haven't found their footing in the Summer. If they are going to get things moving in the right direction, it could come via the hands via BonO.
BonO finished the Spring Split with the fourth-highest (4.13) Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among junglers in the LCK, along with the fourth-most average assists (6.61) per game. BonO is a strong jungler, but the team hasn't been winning games -- which gives him access to his ceiling. This is the matchup where he can show that off and post his best numbers of the Summer Split.
Kuzan, Team Dynamics ($7,700) is really cheap on this slate -- like really, really cheap. He comes in as the seventh-most expensive mid-laner and is facing off against APK Prince in a coin-flip matchup. Team Dynamics are 1-1 to start the Summer Split and saw Kuzan post strong numbers in both series. Of course, the winning series was better with 96 FanDuel points, but the loss wasn't bad with 62 FanDuel points.
If he is displaying that level of relative consistency at that salary in a toss-up versus Prince, why wouldn't you look to him? The point per dollar value he can bring to your roster is tough to match on this slate.
JackeyLove, Top Esports ($10,200) is the most expensive player on the slate, and yeah, he is worth rostering. He is the highest-scoring player from the best team on the slate, who come in as the largest favorite on the slate. This is taking a running back in the NFL who averages 20 carries a game and is a large home favorite. He will likely be popular, but that is chalk you are going to have to eat.
JackeyLove comes in with 78 FanDuel points or more in each of his last three games, with two of them being at 96 and 111 FanDuel points. He is the easy answer on this slate, don't overthink things.
cold, OMG ($7,000) is one of the cheapest players on the entire slate and has looked pretty strong in their last two series. Yes, OMG aren't a strong team -- a record of 1-4 -- but cold has been producing some solid fantasy points. He comes in with 54 FanDuel points or more in each of his last two series, one win and one loss in that time. He's a bit of a punt play, but cold is posting numbers in losses -- which is valuable in LoL DFS.
Team Dynamics ($7,300) is very affordable and could be a key salary-saver on this slate. If your goal is to roster JackeyLove, knight, and another high-priced player in the MVP spot, you need salary relief. Team Dynamics not only fit that category but are in a winnable matchup versus APK Prince. With 45 and 64 FanDuel points in their first two series, you will get production regardless of the outcome.
