Two more weeks of LPL and LCK regular season begins with a Wednesday night slate, opening with a battle of bottom dwelling LPL teams, and closing with a crucial LCK showdown between two top three teams.
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Slate Breakdown
Ultra Prime (UP) vs. ThunderTalk Gaming (TT)
Royal Never Give Up (RNG) vs. LGD Gaming (LGD)
DRX (DRX) vs. Nongshim RedForce (NS)
Gen.G (GEN) vs. Damwon Kia (DK)
In terms of openers, the LPL is dishing out a pairing of teams that are currently out of the playoff picture, however UP has outs to get there, and it needs to start tonight against TT. UP have been one of the more peculiar performing teams this split, as the bottom half of the map is above average in the LPL, with Cryin and Elk doing a lot of the heavy lifting.
Since Ucal and Chieftain joined the roster, TT has been a more competitive team, although they still have big lapses in judgment that likely stem from communication issues as a newer team. TT is worth considering in LoL DFS tonight, as UP is not a picture of consistency as well, and if TT comes out on top, a low owned Puff in a difficult lane against Elk could be enticing options.

DRX really broke out for LoL DFS players last series as they put up 43 kills in a 2-0 sweep of LSB. Tonight DRX walks into a trickier contest against a struggling NS team, and with playoff seeding on the line, DRX has every incentive to win tonight, with Pyosik having solid potential at the JNG position tonight.
Few imagined NS would be outside of the playoff picture looking in at this point, however, it is a grim reality for this squad that has DRX and DK as their next two opponents. Picking up a win here is pivotal, and DRX can be beat, especially if Bdd finds some better form tonight.
ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP
Closing out the LPL is a seemingly one sided affair as RNG takes on LGD. RNG being big favorites are an incredibly versatile LoL DFS team tonight with everyone firmly on the table, especially team kill participation leader xiaohu.
LGD are in an incredibly unlikely spot to make the playoffs, especially as their final four series are all against current playoff teams. Finding a way to be competitive in this series could be difficult, however they are not afraid to force action, and if they catch RNG off guard, they could be sneaky LoL DFS plays tonight.
Last but not least is the most important series of the night in terms of standings as LCK stalwarts GEN and DK duke it out for playoff seeding prevalence tonight. GEN are currently averaging 14.1 kills per game, and in their first meeting GEN and DK put up a combined 108 kills over three games, with GEN accounting for 52 in a 2-1 series win. That could make this series a particularly interesting one for LoL DFS tonight, however there are still lingering illness issues around at least Chovy, and since this is the late LCK series, news on Ruler’s availability will not be known before lock.
Associating DK with high levels of LoL DFS importance, as even though they are third in the LCK in kills per game, it is only an 11.9 average, which is paltry when comparing other teams on the slate. Luckily for DK, their biggest performance was against GEN, and if they are able to duplicate that performance, Canyon could make for a potentially stealthy option, especially in a series where GEN will be without Chovy tonight.
MID – Xiaohu. Few things need to be said about RNG tonight even with their 2.1 assists per kill total, as Xiaohu faces off against an LGD team they should comfortably 2-0.
Best Contrarian Pick
ADC – deokdam. Showmaker has the more appealing lane assignment tonight with Chovy presumably remaining out of this series, giving him an easier assignment, however with deokdam being the same price, he could end up being a more overlooked piece of DK tonight.
