League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL, 6/30/20
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 LPL Summer Split is officially here, and we have League of Legends DFS action! Let's break down the LPL slate for Tuesday, June 30th, 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||Average Towers |
|Average Dragons |
|Royal Never Give Up||4-2||8-6||6.1||2.21|
This is a two-game slate, and the two matchups couldn't be more different in the quality of teams playing. RNG and Team WE are both in the top seven for the league, while LNG Esports and Bilibili Gaming are both in the bottom four of the league.
Star - 1.5x Points
Teacherma, Team WE ($8,300) has been super strong to start the LPL Summer Split and makes an ideal choice for the Star spot. Teacherma comes in with 74 FanDuel points or more in five of his six series this split and is averaging the fifth-most (3.53) kills per game among mid laners in the LPL.
On top of his strong stats, he comes in with a very affordable salary since Team WE are considered the underdog against RNG. Team WE are higher in the standings and with RNG changing their lineup, it wouldn't be a shock if they win this series.
chenlun17, LNG Esports ($8,200) will be starting in the top lane for LNG, despite the fact Flandre ($8,400) is also listed at the position. Flandre has been in the starting lineup for the past four maps, but LNG have gone 1-3 in that time. The starting lineups are here, and you will see chenlun17 as the starter. In the two series LNG won with chenlun17, he posted 89 and 69 FanDuel points -- an attainable level due to their matchup versus Bilibili Gaming.
beishang, Team WE ($8,000) has been a flat-out, unbelievable star in the Summer Split. In the six series beishang has played this split, he has posted 66 FanDuel points or more in all of them, with 76 FanDuel points or more in five of the six. With a record of 4-2, beishang is finding a way to post very productive numbers in losses. That can be very tough to find on a two-game slate and not something you want to be passing on.
Maple, LNG Esports ($9,000) isn't going to blow you away with his stats -- they aren't amazing -- but this matchup is one to attack. LNG sit with a record of 2-4, and his production in the four losses are very clear in his game log. But, in the two series they won, he posted 123 and 77 FanDuel points, which is what we are aiming for on this slate.
Maple is up against Bilibili Gaming, who comes in with a record of 1-4 and has been swept in three of their five series. LNG aren't amazing by any means, but this is a winnable matchup for Maple and thus, more potential fantasy points.
Betty, Royal Never Give Up ($9,700) is coming off a very rough series where RNG got swept but has a chance to turn it around against Team WE. Over the six series in the Summer Split, Betty has posted 79 FanDuel points or more four times, which has led to him holding the second-highest Kill/Death/Assist Ratio (KDA) among ADCs in the LPL.
Betty is, without a doubt, an All-Star, and the level of production he brings to your lineup is almost unmatched on this slate. RNG comes in as the favorites in this series, and you should look to stack them -- even against a tough opponent.
Ming, Royal Never Give Up ($7,600) is a strong addition to an RNG stack, since you are getting plenty of upside at a lower-scoring position. Ming comes in with the seventh-highest (66.9%) Kill Participation (KP) among supports in the LPL. RNG averages 12.7 Kills per game as a team, and that should put Ming in a spot to pick up plenty of assists and rack up the fantasy points.
Team WE ($7,300) are in the top six or better of the LPL for average Towers per game and average Dragons per game. That has led them to posting 32 FanDuel points or more in each of their six series so far, despite two of those being losses. They come in with a high floor of fantasy points, which will only be boosted if they come away with the win.
