Four more teams kick off their season tonight, and both series have enough intrigue within them. New teams, new rosters and new LoL DFS picks kick off another fun nighttime slate.

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

LPL Series

JD Gaming (JDG) vs. Edward Gaming (EDG)

LGD Gaming (LGD) vs. Anyone’s Legend (AL)


JDG’s offseason was mixed, with new additions 369, Missing and Hope joining the organization, but Hope is not starting tonight, while the other two make their debuts. No matter their long term outlook, the short term outlook for their opening series looks bleak, although catching EDG early season might be the time to catch them especially since their roster didn’t play in the Demacia Cup, and if JDG pulls off the upset, the rock of JDG, Kanavi, needs to be critical, while potentially being an overlooked jungler in a well off position tonight.


World champions EDG retain their 2021 roster, and once again look like one of the teams to beat in the LPL in 2022. They are kicking off their 2022 spring split campaign with a new look JDG roster, and even though early season tends to produce more surprising upsets, EDG going down tonight would still be quite surprising, which makes players like Viper all the more appealing for LoL DFS on this slate.


Certain LPL teams took a less splashy approach when it comes to free agency, and a lot of those teams are getting talked down, with LGD finding themselves near the bottom of most power rankings entering the split. LGD features a new bottom side of the map, with YeG, Eric, and Jinjiao, none of which are particularly exciting in comparison to other free agency pickups. Fortunately for LGD, this is a winnable opening series, in a split that likely features many challenges in a stacked LPL, and if LGD rolls, Shad0w is likely to be a huge part of why.


Formerly known as Rogue Warriors, Anyone’s Legend has an intriguing roster with the addition of Maple even if he’s not starting tonight. As RW, one thing was always certain; this team commits to decisions, and while success was not plentiful, it provided LoL DFS intrigue quite often. AL may not have the most talented roster, but there is no reason they cannot challenge another eclectic roster in LGD in this spot, with Betty offering a nice outlook should they come out on top.

Top LoL DFS Picks

JNG – Jiejie. Likely the biggest surprise of the Worlds 2021 run was how on point Jiejie was throughout the tournament. Carrying that form into the new year will make him a great LoL DFS option more often than not, as EDG keeping their roster offers tons of win upside.

Top Contrarian Picks

JNG – Shad0w. Low key the junglers on this slate are all really exciting LoL DFS options on a macro level, and If LGD finds success tonight, it is difficult to envision it not coming off the back of aggressive plays from Shad0w.
