LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

ROGUE WARRIORS

RW has shown the capability to challenge or defeat really solid teams since their change to Xiaohao, and since this is their easiest remaining series, it is difficult on paper to not want some RW in LoL DFS lineups. Caution still needs to be applied though, as TT is more than capable of winning, however the aforementioned Xiaohao is taking on Xiaopeng, in a battle of fun junglers, with both likely to score well in LoL DFS if their respective team wins.

THUNDERTALK GAMING

Coming off a relatively uncompetitive series against LGD, TT marches forward into this match, knowing it is one of the few remaining series they can expect to be competitive in. With no clear-cut favorite here, both sides present great potential LoL DFS plays, and the less popular side may just be a solid strategy to take with regards to this series, with Ye being someone to keep an eye on.

VICTORY FIVE

V5 are on the ever-shorter road of having the first winless split since… V5 in spring 2020. Realistically, they are not in a good spot to win this series, however if one takes a look at their remaining schedule, this is truly one of the last chances to have even a glimmer of hope. Playing V5 in LoL DFS, even on a two-game slate, is playing with fire.

INVICTUS GAMING

Quite often IG will play to the level of their opponents, however last time out against RNG was a quick stomp from RNG, as they meticulously dissected IG in under an hour. Fortunately for IG, V5 is a largely hapless team, which is in a prime position to not win a game this split. Hesitancy towards IG seems unwarranted for at least tonight, as everyone on the squad should be extremely popular in LoL DFS tonight.

Favorite Pick

MID – Rookie. IG gets a theoretical cake walk against V5, and Rookie is in an excellent position to score big against a hapless V5 squad.

Favorite Contrarian Pick

Top – Langx. One area that RW still looks shaky at, with their newfound form, is in the top lane. Langx is a veteran, still capable of carry performances, which makes him worth a look tonight in LoL DFS.

I've been following and playing League of Legends for a decade now. Few things get my blood pumping more than a good ol' midnight LPL DFS sweat. I follow each of the four major regions of LoL in the LCK,LCS,LEC and LPL and each one has its own unique flair. Hopefully we can all learn a little bit about LoL DFS and best of luck in your contests! If you want additional fun stuff feel free to follow me @pickemgenius on twitter.
