LoL Esports DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Breakdown
Opening the night with a banger, as the Telecom War carries more legitimacy than it has in most recent times. T1 is a more talented team, but their up and down form at best more than opens the door for an upset from KT. From a LoL DFS perspective, even with their hiccups, T1 is still near the top of the LCK in kills per game, and if you pair that with their 2.3 assists per game, they become really attractive in the case they win 2-0, with Teddy sitting at the top of the pile.
After entering the summer split guns blazing, taking down DK in their second series, it’s been a little more of a bumpy ride for KT, having dropped three of their last four series. On a positive note, every series they’ve lost, they’ve won a game, which proves them as a tough out. Since both of these teams are in the top three of the LCK in kills per game, it’s possible this is a relatively interesting LoL DFS game, and if that occurs, Doran taking on Canna makes for an appealing choice.
When BLG lost three of their first four series, including getting swept by SN, many individuals were ready to proclaim OMG as a clear-cut victor over them. One quick look at the teams they lost to, including going 2-1 against LNG and EDG, which by the way is the only game EDG has lost this split, paints a clear overreaction for that series. Now the question becomes will the perception flip back, and BLG gets a bump against a WE squad that just lost to RA? If BLG is too popular, then getting over the field will be difficult, but BLG has a fair shot here, and if they get the win, Aiming makes for an attractive LoL DFS option.
Currently on a mini two series slide, WE enters this series with a chance to find a win over a solid BLG squad. Only Missing doesn’t have a kill participation (KP) over 60%, but beishang tops the charts at 68.3% making WE a weird LoL DFS team early this split, on top of Shanks getting the start in mid lane tonight. WE is likely still the correct side, but expecting a difficult battle is fair, as this series can go either direction.
Scoring a 2-0 win over NS was an unexpected twist, but they did look good, and do carry a positive game record while sitting at 3-3 overall. Expecting a similar result here may be a tad ambitious, but outside of their nine-kill win over NS, every win prior had at least 14 kills, making UmTi a potential LoL DFS flier if you really need the salary.

Sitting undefeated in the LCK while also leading in kills per game, GEN jaunts into another series with expectations of another 2-0. That’s more than generous with the current best team in the LCK, but one thing is concerning, and it’s that the two teams here are both the best at not dying in the LCK. This is naturally a bit scary for LoL DFS purposes, where you want big kills and assists, regardless, taking shots on a likely 2-0 is rarely awful, and Rascal has a favorable lane assignment tonight.
What opened as a potential early season brawl between potentially two of the top teams in the league, now becomes a series in which one team likely finds form after a disappointing start. As even as this series appears on paper, RNG is in really bad form currently, and leads the LPL in deaths per game at 18.3, so targeting TES in LoL DFS is quite acceptable, should that RNG rear its head once again. Knight has all the tools to gap Cryin in the mid lane, after Doinb successfully did, and the mid laner offers an attractive option on tonight’s slate.
ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP
It’s been more than a bumpy ride for the MSI champions, not getting their start until the second week, as well as starting 1-3. It really doesn’t get any easier for RNG, as taking on TES, while an achievable outcome, probably ends up being another loss in their current form more often than not. Trusting RNG is extremely difficult, although they did take a game off FPX last time out which is promising. Wei really needs to find a groove here, which will be difficult, nonetheless his 69.5% KP is alluring, especially if RNG goes overlooked.
MID – Knight. Usually massively targeting a line so close is risky, but it’s also a fascinating way to get creative lines for LoL DFS. Knight is the clearly superior mid laner here, and if the league death per game leaders in RNG show up, he’ll be an amazing option.
Favorite Contrarian Pick
ADC – Aiming. BLG are the only team to have taken a game off of EDG this split, and with how WE made iBoy look, Aiming becomes an inviting LoL DFS pick on tonight’s fun slate.
