League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL/LCK, 6/25/20
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|
|Royal Never Give Up||4-1||8-4|
The LPL gives us two very close series on this slate, as we see all four teams sitting in the top seven of the standings or higher.

DragonX are massive favorites against SANDBOX, while the GenG versus DAMWON should be closer.
Star - 1.5x Points
Doinb, FunPlus Phoenix ($9,300) could be in for a full three-game series against Invictus Gaming, and that should present him with plenty of upside. FunPlus Phoenix have picked up the win in each of their last two series, which has led to Doinb posting 86 and 90 FanDuel points.
Doinb is holding a 78% Kill Participation (KP) Rate so far in the Summer Split, which is the third-highest among mid-laners in the LPL. On top of that, he is averaging the fifth-most kills per game and the second-most average assists per game, giving a solid floor/ceiling combination.
New, Royal Never Give Up ($8,600) has been very solid in the top lane for RNG and is an option to look towards for some consistency. RNG are 4-1 in the Summer Split, and we have seen New post 57 FanDuel points or more in each of their four wins. The one loss brings a low of 14 FanDuel points, but that is to be expected.
Surprisingly, this should actually be a close series versus Victory Five, who also hold a record of 4-1.
Pyosik, DragonX ($8,600) could be the easiest answer in the jungle, which can be a highly variable position. DragonX are overwhelming favorites against an 0-2 SANDBOX Gaming squad and siding with the favorite will often lead to plenty of fantasy points. With two series under his belt in the Summer Split, Pyosik has posted 64 and 88 FanDuel points, which has helped push him to holding the third-highest (4.52) Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among junglers in the LCK.
Chovy, DragonX ($8,800) is way too cheap on this slate. DragonX come in as the biggest favorite on the slate, yet, Chovy is the sixth-most expensive mid-laner. The point-per-dollar value you are getting out of a mid-laner under $9K -- who is the favorite -- is tough to match on this slate.
A total of 72 and 91 FanDuel points in their two series are good numbers you can count on again if DragonX come away with the win. It's also likely that DragonX can pick up the sweep against SANDBOX, giving Chovy a further boost of fantasy points.
Ruler, GenG ($9,800) is one of my favorite plays on the entire slate, regardless of position. Ruler is tied for the fifth-cheapest ADC on the slate and given we should be looking at a full three-game series against DAMWON Gaming, he has serious upside. Ruler ended the LCK Spring Split with the second-highest KDA (7.00) among ADCs, the fourth-most average assists per game, and the fewest average deaths per game.
He has 14 deaths through his first two series in the Summer Split -- which isn't great -- but if he can limit those, his upside will increase even further.
BeryL, DAMWON Gaming ($8,000) is an interesting option at support for a few reasons. Overall, we might see DAMWON less popular compared to other teams on the slate and stacking them could give you some leverage. Next, he is tied for the most expensive option at his position and could see Crisp ($8,000) from FunPlus as a more popular option.
But BeryL has been holding his own in the Summer Split, posting 83 and 68 FanDuel points over his two series. He offers leverage and is putting strong numbers along the way.
DragonX ($7,600) make a ton of sense for the team spot since they are on the cheaper side of options and are still large favorites versus SANDBOX Gaming. Posting 52 FanDuel points or more in their first two series, DragonX look to be in a spot to hit that mark again and extend their win streak to three.
