Your complete guide to tomorrow morning’s two-game, best-of-three LoL slate on DraftKings.
If you’re new to our eSports team, we have a Twitter account that will be posting lineups, news, or anything else that I think is relevant for LoL DFS. You can follow that account @esports_ef and you’ll find me on Twitter @RyanClifford
My projections for the two-game slate are already loaded into the EliteFantasy.com LoL optimizer and lineup builder. Let’s get to work!
Some settings I like to use when MME’ing on these 2-game slates:
- 4-3 builds are best for 2 game slates.
- Offensive players vs. TEAM pos – 0 players
- Randomness around 10-15%
- Players from Game MAX – 4
- Limit Opposing Players – 0
- Stack CAPT with at least 2 TOP/JNG/MID/ADC/SUP from same team
- Have at least one 4-player stack
- No TEAM CAPT (ADC or MID are best-suited for CAPT)
This slate features two best-of-five matches:
OMG (+475) vs. Funplus Phoenix (-950)
- Projected kills per game (per my model): OMG 12.3 – Phoenix 15.7
Rogue Warriors (+700) vs. Top Esports (-1800)
- Projected kills per game (per my model): Rogue 10.6 – Top 18.9
With that in mind, here are my player rankings by position – these are value rankings based on point per dollar:
- CAPT: Knight (MID – TES), JackeyLove (ADC – TES), Doinb (MID – FPX)
- TOP: 369 (TES), Nuguri (FPX), New (OMG)
- JNG: Karsa (TES), Tian (FPX), AKi (OMG)
- MID: Knight (TES), Doinb (FPX), Wuming (OMG)
- ADC: JackeyLove (TES), Lwx (FPX), Eric (OMG)
- SUP: Zhuo (TES), Crisp (FPX), cold (OMG)
- TEAM: Top Esports, Funplus Phoenix, OMG
The chalk will be Top Esports and Funplus Phoenix.
Well, at least pricing has tightened up a bit.
Listen, Top Esports is not going to lose again; not to this Rogue Warriors squad. Knight, JackeyLove, and Karsa should be in every lineup you build. They will be extremely chalky, as will the -950 favorite FPX. This is a slate I would advise you all to just stay out of.
If you need some action, I think the best move may be to plug in someone like OMG’s cold into your support spot, and stack up all the big scorers. JackeyLove, knight, Karsa, Doinb, etc.
For the 20-max builders and MME’s out there…here are my team exposures:
100% Top Esports
0% Rogue Warriors
