Your regularly scheduled LoL DFS is back, as the two best regions in the world usher in their respective summer splits. Tonight should provide solid action, and it’ll be interesting to dissect all of the teams to open the slate. I’m breaking down all the LPL action tonight, as well as peppering in some of my favorite LoL DFS picks on this DraftKings slate.

LPL STARTING LINEUPS
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LCK + LPL Slate Breakdown
While BRO did end up finishing 10th place with a 5-13 spring split record, to me that feels like an over-achievement, and there’s a little bit of intrigue, even if little is expected in terms of results. With little in terms of roster changes, BRO will march out a similar set of players throughout the split, and on paper they’ve received a medium level opponent to start it all off. Taking shots on BRO isn’t the worst idea here.
There’s a lot of respect for LSB this split, as they open up as probably slightly too big of a favorite against BRO. They’re still my preference in this match, and they were showing signs of life in spring, but this doesn’t mean everything is necessarily solved yet. They are the most talented team, however, and worth taking shots on.
Kicking off the LPL side of the slate is big favorites FPX taking on newly rebranded UP. Having a series already won against another lesser team is likely a solid blueprint for what appears to be another 2-0. Even though it’s early in the season, there are no qualms with playing as much, or as little FPX in LoL DFS as you want, as this is a four-game slate, nonetheless Tian is an attractive option.

Formerly known as eStar, UP brings in new talent xiaocaobao to challenge in the mid lane, while known talent Smlz appears ready to probably do completely fine in the bot lane. Unfortunately for UP, FPX already has a series under their belt, although even if they didn’t it’d be tricky to love their chances in this series. Xiaocaobao is an interesting prospect, and while it’s tough to trust UP in this spot, he can be peppered in early in the split.
Our final LCK series sees two top half teams duking it out as T1 takes on HLE. My initial reaction to this series is one of minimal LoL DFS significance, even if both teams were top three in kills during the spring split. There’s also the ever so slight chance that T1 gets weird with their lineup, but they seemed to really focus on one lineup at the end of split, and it happens to be the best set of five players they can field. Within that starting five, Canna is interesting, and a player that’s capable of putting up solid LoL DFS scores from time to time.

Speaking of teams with potential to be weird with starting lineups, HLE really didn’t mess around with their lineup after the first half of spring. HLE is in a solid position to get the win tonight, and while they did lose to T1 both times in spring, while also dying a lot, there are much worse dogs on this LoL DFS slate. Getting a good team for cheap is always appealing, and HLE will likely fill out the rest of your roster with better players.
The summary of LNG in the spring split was simple. Win every series against teams that finish below you, while not even taking a single game off of a team that finished ahead of them. It’ll be interesting to see how they come out tonight as V5 is a different team, albeit one that on paper doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence in placing highly in this split. My interest in LNG will depend on the ownership projections, as LNG didn’t often rock the world in LoL DFS.
Many changes this offseason presents us with a largely new look V5 roster. Pzx is coming in from LNG’s LDL team, where he’s looked good in his year and a half with the organization. Uniboy is likely going to be a relatively solid part of the squad, but while the talent isn’t too bad, it’s difficult to be too optimistic for this V5 roster.
JNG – Tian. Top to bottom FPX is the safest team to see winning, because they’ve played a series, and are just the more talented team top to bottom. Tian is more than functional, and the FPX JNG will fit into a majority of my FPX stacks tonight.
Favorite Contrarian Pick
MID – Uniboy. LNG on paper is easily the correct side of this series, but it is not necessary to play a ton of V5 to drastically over the field. All that’s needed is that LNG plays poorly, which they’re capable of, and the new players on V5 perform well, so give me a small amount of V5 in LoL DFS tonight.
