The opening series of this LoL DFS slate features two teams looking to distinguish themselves from the bottom feeders, while the latter game should result in a clean 2-0 for the champions. Like usual, Tuesdays are the last set of two-gamers for the week, and we will be going over some of the best LoL DFS picks today for DraftKings and FanDuel lineups

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

LPL Series

LGD Gaming (LGD) vs. JD Gaming (JDG)

Ultra Prime (UP) vs. Edward Gaming (EDG)


These kinds of matches are what distinguish the LPL from other regions, as both of these teams are 0-2, while offering their own little quirks. LGD early on has shown a propensity for action, as their games average 32.2 kills per game, placing them near the top of that category, even if their deaths do outnumber the kills. Eric and jinjiao could be interesting LoL DFS options in a unique series, where JDG might pick up more ownership strictly due to their name.


JDG has played EDG and RNG to open the year, so their 0-2 record is not entirely unexpected. How they come out this series will paint a better picture of their season long outlook, as a comfortable 2-0 will firmly place them in a crowded playoff picture, whereas a loss has potential to find a team with some solid pieces on a downward trajectory. Kanavi faces off against another aggressive jungler tonight, and if he is able to get the edge, he would make for a nice LoL DFS option.


Despite being 0-2 with a 1-4 game record, UP has rather quietly put up big fights against both LNG and TES. Naturally expecting them to beat EDG tonight is a bit ambitious, but they could pose a bigger challenge than expected, and while the win chances are low, so will the ownership on players like Elk tonight.


Most nights EDG will be comfortable favorites, with expectations of a 2-0, and tonight is no different even if it might be a little bit more challenging than most might expect. EDG currently lead the LPL in kills per game making them prime LoL DFS options, and if they manage to get a 2-0 not only will Scout look nice, but so will the entirety of this squad.

Favorite Pick Tonight

ADC – Viper. Taking shots on Viper is rarely a bad idea, and even though he is up against a formidable bot lane tonight, EDG should still get a 2-0, making his LoL DFS outlook shine.

Favorite Contrarian Pick Tonight

TOP – fearness. Even if it is only a small sample size, fearness has been put on high damage characters in each of the four games up to this point, which could allow him to have LoL DFS relevance, especially in a winnable matchup against 369.
