We may only be a few days into the summer split, but League of Legends DFS hasn’t missed a step. Tonight appears to be a night where four sets of three games wouldn’t be surprising, and building while factoring in ownership projections this slate seems to be potentially more important to find your favorite players. I’ll break down each team, and series below, while also presenting some of my favorite LoL DFS picks on DraftKings for tonight’s LPL & LCK series.
Bilibili Gaming (BLG) vs. LNG Esports (LNG)
Team WE (WE) vs. Suning (SN)
Afreeca Freecs (AF) vs. Fredit Brion (BRO)
Damwon Kia (DWG) vs. T1 (T1)
LPL Starting Lineups
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LCK + LPL Slate Breakdown
AF is once again in a position this split to be a team that many people will want to see do well, but on paper this disjointed group of talent is unlikely to get it done. Tonight is an exception, as BRO is quite beatable, and with BRO crushing LoL DFS in their opening series, AF might be a neat little leverage spot if BRO is wildly popular. Kiin is still more than capable of having big moments, and I still won’t mind rostering him in this position.
Strategically BRO looked really strong in their sweep over LSB. Plays were largely crisp, and at no point did it feel like there was a gap in talent between the two teams. Fortunately tonight is another night where BRO shouldn’t be outgunned too badly, if at all, and it will be interesting to see the level of overreaction to their opening performance. BRO being too popular will likely see me being quite under the field, but more than likely I’ll take shots on them again, with UmTi as an interesting piece after orchestrating their first series win.
If you ask many individuals of a team that’s likely to find their way into the playoff picture that didn’t make it in spring, BLG is the one that comes up most often. Typically this is at the expense of LNG, making this series a potentially important early season clash. If Zeka were a stronger mid laner, I’d have a stronger lean to BLG, but as is, this could be a competitive, three game series that is capable of going either direction. Any BLG 2-0 likely comes from a strong bot lane performance from Aiming and ppgod, even though it likely won’t be easy for either team.
This really is a weird, early season battle between two teams probably vying for the last few playoff spots. Both teams have also played a series already, with LNG coming out on top of their series against V5 rather convincingly. LNG appears to finally recognize that even though Ale can be a little rough around the edges, the talent seems to be there, and hopefully he’s given time to grow this summer split to mitigate the solo lane weaknesses of LNG. As underdogs, LNG is moderately attractive tonight, with Tarzan at the top of the pile.

Kicking off the split against T1 is hardly a welcome home present for the LCK representatives, who might not be fully prepared for the split. If there’s ever a time to catch them off guard, it’s after travelling back from MSI, with less preparation for this series than they’d probably like. Does this mean don’t play DWG? No, of course not, as DWG is currently the best team in the league, and they should still win this series, and while I’m not sure it’ll be as clean as they would like, ShowMaker is a player from DWG I favor quite a bit for DWG in LoL DFS tonight.
Daeny, coach of T1, claims that the roster won’t swap as frequently as it did in spring, which is wonderful news for LoL DFS, and T1 fans in general. After smoking Chovy and friends 2-0 in the opening series of their split, T1 receives a matchup against the team most likely to win the split in DWG. Perhaps T1 carries some of the form from the HLE series, taking a game, or upsetting DWG altogether, and while I’m not against having a smidge of them in LoL DFS, I’ll be waiting for better spots to go heavy on T1.
WE gets a difficult test to open their LPL split up against SN, and the addition of Mole in the mid lane, could be an interesting piece to the puzzle. Being the underdog in this position makes WE slightly more intriguing from a LoL DFS perspective, as while this isn’t a top tier team, getting this level of solid talent typically isn’t this affordable. I still don’t think they’ll win tonight, but I have some interest, with beishang as my preference.
Losing to IG is not that big of a deal. SN will be a playoff team, and they’re still a team capable of posing a threat to upper tier teams, and tonight will be another good test against another solid team. Coming off a loss might make them a little less popular, alongside the fact that this series might be pretty tight. Nonetheless, SN is the correct side.
JNG – Canyon. While the jungle meta at MSI carries over, and Canyon wasn’t necessarily a big LoL DFS player there, I’m still buying into his talent. The matchup is tricky, but Canyon is still capable of taking over any game, so sign me up even with a crazy price tag.
Favorite Contrarian Pick
MID – Fly. Targeting the player facing off in lane against Lava isn’t something many will be too excited to do. Pull the reins on the sentiment and play what might be an unattractive AF squad in my LoL DFS lineups in a spot they’re fully capable of winning.
