League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL/LCK, 6/26/20
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 Friday, June 26th, 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|
The news for this LPL slate is that Edward Gaming's ADC Hope is out due to a collapsed lung. BBD ($8,500) will be the starting ADC for Edward Gaming.
|Team||Match Record||Map Record|
|Hanwha Life Esports||0-3||2-6|
The LCK slate brings us a heavy favorite via T1 over Afreeca Freecs, while we have a bit of a toss-up with Team Dynamics versus Hanwha Life.
Star - 1.5x Points
karsa, Top Esports ($8,800) comes in with the third-highest (5.90) Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among junglers in the LPL, the highest average assists (10.67) per game, and the sixth-lowest average deaths (2.22) per game. On top of that, he comes in with a 71.5% Kill Participation (KP) Rate, showing he is involved around the map.
Top Esports are the best team in the LPL, hold a map record of 10-1, and come in as overwhelming favorites against Edward Gaming on this slate. karsa has an impact around the map and should be able to pick up the sweep bonus -- boosting his ceiling even further in the Star spot.
Rich, Team Dynamics ($8,400) has been impressive to start the Summer Split, and frankly, it's a bit surprising. He has never played at this level before, yet comes in with the third-highest KDA (3.18) among top laners in the LCK. That has led him to post 67 FanDuel points or more in two of his three series so far this split.
Team Dynamics are in a bit of a toss-up versus Hanwha, and we could see this series go to a full three games, granting Rich strong upside given his modest salary.
beishang, Team WE ($8,600) is a strong option in the jungle and should be in a spot for a sweep against the winless Rogue Warriors. When it comes to beishang's production in the Summer Split, he is only slightly behind karsa. beishang sits with the fifth-highest (4.63) KDA and the sixth-highest average assists (7.00) per game, and he jumps ahead in average kills (3.69) per game.
He's a solid pick in the jungle, and stacking Team WE with beishang could be a popular option on this slate.
Teacherma, Team WE ($8,900) has been ballin' out in the mid lane for Team WE and is very worth a roster spot on this slate. He comes in with 74 FanDuel points or more in four of his five series in the Summer Split -- with a high of 96 FanDuel points. It shouldn't come as a surprise if we find Teacherma as one of the more popular options at the end of the day.
He has 15 assists or more in each of his five series, 20 assists or more in four of the five, and 7 kills or more in three of the five. Teacherma is an all-around strong option who should be in a spot for a 2-0 sweep.
Teddy, T1 ($9,700) lost the first series of the Summer Split, posting 64 FanDuel points in the process. They turned things around in their second series with a win, where Teddy went on to post 87 FanDuel points. That is generally the ratio we see when it comes to the production from wins compared to losses. He is in a spot to replicate the 87-FanDuel-point performance, as T1 are heavy favorites over Afreeca Freecs.
yuyanjia, Top Esports ($8,000) is the most expensive option at support, but he is the cheapest play on Top Esports. This is always a tough call to make. Top Esports are the best team in the LPL and bring sweep potential to every matchup, so they're on the stacking radar. yuyanjia is expensive at support, but he is posting 63 FanDuel points or more in four of his five series in the Summer Split.
Team Dynamics ($7,500) comes in with 64, 45, and 49 FanDuel points over their first three series in the LCK. Reminder -- this is the team that got promoted from Korea's second-tier league, so they are off to a very strong start. With a record of 2-1, they have shown -- at least for now -- to be a viable DFS option in a loss. That can be huge, especially when they aren't too expensive.
