League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL/LCK, 7/1/20
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, July 1st, 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||Average Towers
Invictus Gaming comes in as massive favorites over Dominus Esports, while LGD Gaming are only slight favorites over Suning.

Much like the LPL matches, we see GenG as massive favorites over SANDBOX, with a coin-flip in the other series.
Star - 1.5x Points
Rookie, Invictus Gaming ($9,100) has been super consistent in the mid lane for Invictus Gaming, and since they are massive favorites on this slate, it's natural to look to him in the Star spot. He comes in with 73 FanDuel points or more in four of his last five series while also posting 14 assists or more in four of five.
Rookie is up against Dominus Esports, who are currently in 16th place out of 17 teams in the LPL. They are a very weak team, and that should put the sweep firmly within reach for Invictus, thus granting Rookie the bonus points -- on top of the 1.5x multiplier.
Rascal, GenG ($8,200) popped off in his last series, going for an insane 102 FanDuel points -- something we rarely see from top laners. You don't want to be chasing that total, but rather look to his average of 6.27 assists per game -- the highest in the LCK among top laners -- and a 67.1% Kill Participation (KP) Rate, which is the third-highest.
The consistent floor he brings is super valuable at a lower-scoring position like top lane, while the soft matchup versus SANDBOX Gaming will allow him to reach for that ceiling again.
Ellim, T1 ($8,000) should be in the starting lineup for T1, but there is no confirmation yet. T1 started the season with Cuzz ($7,800) as their jungler, but after going 3-3 in maps, they switched to Ellim. Since joining the starting lineup, Ellim and T1 have gone 4-0, with two series sweeps.
In his four maps played, Ellim has piled up 13 kills, 42 assists, and only 3 deaths. Those are amazing numbers from a player who is only $8K and makes a great addition to a T1 stack.
xiye, LGD Gaming ($8,600) is a very affordable mid laner on this slate and comes in a decent favorite. LGD Gaming have won four of their five series in the LPL Summer Split, and xiye's stats reflect that. He has posted 60 FanDuel points or more in the four wins, with a high-water mark of 98 FanDuel points.
LGD are setting up as one of the more popular stacks on the slate since they are very affordable and are the favorites against Suning.
Teddy, T1 ($9,500) has truly flexed his power in the last three series for T1, posting 87, 112, and 103 FanDuel points. As you would assume, all of those series were victories for T1, and Teddy was the main driver during this stretch. He posted 14 kills or more in each series, 14 assists or more in two of the three series, and 5 deaths or fewer in each series.
Paying up for Puff ($10,200) or Ruler ($10,000) is a great idea, but if you can't afford their salaries, Teddy is an awesome option on this slate.
Life, GenG ($7,700) is one of the easier answers at support, and you shouldn't overthink it too much. GenG are set to not only win this series versus SANDBOX Gaming but are in a spot to pick up the sweep, which means more fantasy points for LIfe. If they do grab the sweep, it boosts his floor of points and would be viable as a one-off in your lineups, allowing you to fully stack the higher-scoring positions.
T1 ($7,400) comes in with 57, 55, and 58 FanDuel points over their last three series, and you can expect that level of production again if they pick up the win. They are in the middle of the pack when it comes to their salary, so no need to spend all the way to the top for plenty of fantasy points.
