LCK comes back on July 23, but the LPL is still kicking. I’m looking at each series and breaking down some of my favorite LoL DFS picks for the slate.

Series 1: Rogue Warriors (RW) vs. eStar (ES)
Series 2: Team WE (WE) vs. Bilibili Gaming (BLG)
LPL Starting Lineups
One of the most fun LPL teams to watch, RW are currently on an impressive three-series win streak after starting 0-8. They have a bunch of work to do to even sniff the playoff bubble, and it starts by beating another 3-8 team in ES. Awesemo’s ownership projections will likely determine what side I like of this game the most, as this should be a tight contest. Haro could very well be the most impactful player in this series, and I expect him to be the first person that I want in my RW stacks.
The fall from grace we’ve seen from ES this split hasn’t been pretty with a six-loss series loss streak that just got broken. Both of these teams are 3-8 with outside shots at the playoffs, and this series should be quite even. Everyone outside of Xiaobai has at least a 71% kill participation (KP), and while they haven’t lost recently, RW still lead the league in deaths per contest at 16.7. An ES series win likely would lead to an impressive LoL DFS output. Fenfen will be replaced by Irma tonight, and his LDL stats are a little scattered, as he’s played a lot of less traditional mid lane selections. He will likely be less-owned, and I’m more than OK taking shots on him. Rat had an excellent LPL debut last time out, and while he was shaky at times, I look for him to be an important player once again should ES come out on top.
Evident flaws of WE were exposed in their 0-2 loss to LGD, but the question remains how many teams are capable of following the blueprint provided? WE still need to beat teams below them to avoid the cluster of teams fighting for playoff spots, including this series against BLG. Jiumeng and Missing should provide WE a definite advantage over their counterparts, and hopefully they enable them appropriately. If they are able to take advantage of their opponents, I like both of them to score well for LoL DFS purposes.
Alternating wins and losses in their last five series, BLG is coming off a win against DMO. BLG has their own outs to take this series, and most of it comes down to either shutting down beishang, or neutering what Teacherma wants to do. Luckily Meteor and FoFo are extremely good, and unless they draft poorly, they should be able to push back against WE’s tendencies. This is another jungle matchup that’s very exciting, and if Meteor is successful, he could provide an excellent LoL DFS score with his nearly 79% KP.
JNG – Haro. Once again I’ll restate that Haro is a madman that will be important to an RW series win. RW is cheaper on both DraftKings and FanDuel, so Haro will easily fit into any build type on both sites.
Favorite Contrarian Play
MID – FoFo. There’s no mystery here as I believe BLG is very live in this series, with Teacherma constantly being the player I typically target against. FoFo has more than enough talent to suppress Teacherma, and he tends to be the focal point for BLG.
