Jeremy Schritt breaks down lol dfs picks for Draftkings on January 13 2021 LPL/LCK

Why hello there LPL it’s been awhile. Your LCK friends have their usual days off, so the red carpet is all yours. Hopefully rust isn’t present for any of the teams in this LoL DFS breakdown, although the LPL tends to embrace chaos a little more than other regions.

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

SUNING

We’re in for two potentially really strong series in the LPL tonight, starting with SN taking on JDG. It’s been awhile since their 0-2 loss to EDG, bringing their series record to 3-4, nonetheless fifth place only sits at 4-3 making placement swings potentially huge as we near halfway through the split. SN really hasn’t found form up to this point, and part of the reason seems to be a weaker early game facilitated in small part by SofM not playing super great this LPL split. Since this is SN, taking shots on them don’t feel futile, and I like huanfeng a lot if they manage to get the victory. 

JD GAMING

Speaking of teams with an uneven early game for similar reasons, JDG just hasn’t been able to power through equally matched teams yet. This’ll provide each team a solid test in that department, however I slightly favor JDG to come out on top for the series win. Kanavi is someone to keep an eye out for, and his navigation of the map likely will dictate how much success JDG finds in the mid and late stages of the game. Zoom vs. Bin is an incredible lane matchup, however Zoom has been quite impressive recently, and in a battle of two great top laners, if JDG comes out on top, Zoom should be a good LoL DFS option.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX

Fortunately our second series has the potential to be as good as the first, making this LoL DFS slate a nice welcome back to the LPL. Saying that, I pretty comfortably expect FPX to find the series win here as form speaks, as they’ve not dropped a game since January 16. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of tonight is the return of Tian. Bo currently rocks a ten game win streak, with a majority being sub 30 minute victories, so dynamically it’ll be interesting to see how FPX adjusts with the return of Tian, and even though we get LPL starting lineups in way ahead of time, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see a little residual ownership on Bo making Tian slightly more attractive. 

TEAM WE

If the LPL is anything like the LCK coming back from a break, this series game one will be a 50 kill game that WE wins, before a close game two, and a less close FPX game three win. I’m being a little facetious here, but sometimes breaks in play do cause rust, which can lend itself to wilder results. The best part is that WE is talented enough to where if they’re playing their A game, they don’t need that much of a drop off from FPX to come out victorious. Shanks’ matchup is one I don’t mind targeting, and if Beishang finds successful ganks, that could provide the team with a solid groundwork. 

Favorite LoL DFS Pick

ADC-Lwx. Lwx is an extremely solid LoL DFS option, while also flashing a high enough ceiling from time to time. He’s my favorite FPX player tonight, although I have few issues with making anybody your favorite option from FPX. 

Favorite Contrarian LoL DFS Pick

MID-Angel. Players from SN look like more attractive dogs tonight, and Angel has a reasonable lane opponent. He’s quietly produced at a solid clip, with the second highest damage share and KP on the team, making him someone I have no issue playing.

I've been following and playing League of Legends for a decade now. Few things get my blood pumping more than a good ol' midnight LPL DFS sweat. I follow each of the four major regions of LoL in the LCK,LCS,LEC and LPL and each one has its own unique flair. Hopefully we can all learn a little bit about LoL DFS and best of luck in your contests! If you want additional fun stuff feel free to follow me @pickemgenius on twitter.
