Jeremy Schritt breaks down the 6/25/20 LoL DFS slate, including his favorite League of Legends plays and stacks for LPL and LCK DFS.

Closing out the LCS weekend with four solid, if unspectacular matchups. I’m looking at the games, and posting some of my favorite League of Legends DFS plays on the slate.

LCS Games June 28, 2020:

Game 1: 100 Thieves (100) vs. Team Solomid (TSM)

Game 2: Immortals (IMT) vs. Cloud 9 (C9)

Game 3: Golden Guardians (GG) vs. FlyQuest (FLY)

Game 4: Team Dignitas (DIG) vs. Evil Geniuses (EG)

Game Notes:

100 Thieves

There seems to be a bit of a quandary around this 100 roster, and playstyle. They don’t appear to have someone who can consistently carry games for them, and seemingly forget their best player is sitting in the top lane at times. After their disjointed loss against CLG on Saturday I’m having a difficult time loving their matchup here. Should they remember their best player is Ssumday, he can take advantage of Broken Blade’s up and down play.

Team Solomid

Wild what can happen when TSM has a largely cohesive draft. They steamrolled EG, with only a small mid game shotcalling blunder allowing EG to take their second dragon. My main issue with this game is how popular might TSM be since 100 looked bad, while they looked good? If Awesemo has their ownership near the top, it’ll be difficult to get over that. Regardless, I like TSM in this game, and I once again love Bjergsen and his matchup against Ryoma.

Immortals

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a team that struggled to beat academy teams, but maybe this IMT roster is an upgrade over their “main” lineup. This is not to say I have any faith in them taking down C9, and it’s difficult to buy low on IMT as they have a pretty brutal next two games after this one as well. IMT wins this game if C9 clowns around a little bit too long. It’s extremely improbable, and this isn’t the LPL, but never say never, and if it were to occur, Xmithie likely is involved in a good chunk of the kills.

Cloud 9

What can you say about C9? The team is just the best team in the LCS, and even if they lose a game or two during the split, they’re North America’s best hope at international success this year. Even though IMT are playing their academy roster this week, C9 should be able to overpower them with ease. My favorite play would be an expensive Blaber, as he’s got an ADC ceiling as a JNG.

Golden Guardians

One area that GG has looked solid at throughout this early split is having an early gold advantage. This is promising to me, as having an early lead is typically a great blueprint for overall success. They allowed IMT their first win of the split on Saturday, and they looked disjointed after about the 15 minute mark. I don’t mind their chances against FLY, and with their loss on Saturday, I won’t need to get crazy to be even or over the field. I like FBI against everyone’s new favorite old timer ADC Mash, and if he gets unpunished by IgNar early, he could easily post a nice LoL DFS score.

FlyQuest

It was a little rockier than one would like in FLY’s victory over CLG on Friday. I like them to win this game more often than not, but I worry slightly about a few aspects of their game which could be exploited eventually, including this game. The area that FLY obviously has their biggest advantage is in the mid lane. PowerOfEvil is an absolute stud, and Damonte’s roaming style is less likely to be effective here.

Dignitas

Positive news for DIG fans as even though they lost again, there were positives to take away. Lourlo looks to be a little bit of an upgrade, and they were playing TL very close for the opening 15 minutes, before eventually taking the game to over 45 minutes. There is always a chance that EG gets wild, meaning DIG could take advantage, possibly snagging a win, however I’m less enthused after EG did that on Saturday. Froggen tends to be a rock in the mid lane, for better or worse, and DIG should look to get him a good lane matchup against Jiizuke here.

Evil Geniuses

We all got to see a little bit of the wild that makes EG so attractive as a LoL DFS option on Saturday. Unfortunately it was the bad kind of wild, as Jiizuke was the constant victim of TSM bullying him, while EG couldn’t get going anywhere else. Love the bounceback spot against DIG though, and I like Svenskeren to perform well in a win.

Favorite LoL DFS plays on the slate:

C9-They’re expensive on DraftKings and FanDuel, but the only worry you probably have is whether or not they’ll beat IMT too quickly. Those worries are valid, but I will not be getting rid of any C9 players that pop up for me.

ADC-Bang. Love the spot against DIG, and Bang and Zeyzal should outclass their lane opponents, which should lend itself to a nice LoL DFS score in a game win.

Favorite contrarian LoL DFS play on the slate:

JNG-Closer. I spoke a little bit about GG possibly being able to get comfortable early game, and if that’s the case, then Closer is someone I like to facilitate that. Oddly, I like him more with the loss against IMT, as now I should be able to just take stabs on him to be alright ownership wise.

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.
