Healy breaks down DraftKings League of Legends Mid Season Cup – May 28 – 3:00 AM EST
Filling in for tonight’s LOL Mid Season Cup slate. Only a 2 gamer again tonight which both Ryan and Ken have provided some fantastic roster construction/optimizer tips over the last week of articles. I highly recommend checking them out prior to building rosters.
When playing a DraftKings League of Legends tournament, it is important to team stack and focus on narrowing down the teams that will provide the best chance of winning. Total score is determined by kills, assists and overall player performance in each LoL game that happens on the rift, but the goal is always to aim and stack winning teams for the easiest chance at taking down cash games and GPP tournaments. We take a closer look at what teams might be able to provide us an edge.
Teams to Target
2 game slate tonight that consist of teams from both the LPL and LCK. The LPL is notorious for far more killing/fantasy scoring throughout the year so most will immediately flock to those teams when matched up with an LCK squad. Its important not to jump to that assumption without digging a bit deeper as it often time leads to an over slower matchup much like a typical LCK match. If anything I often time bump up my projection on the LCK team. If I had to take a side in each match it would be Funplus Phonenix (+115) and Top Esports (-230). My focus on DFS lineups will be to at minimum stack 4 players from 1 team while trying to fit a 3-man stack in my remaining spots.
Players to Target
Player knowledge is just as important as team knowledge. Knowing where a player can shine in a line is what separates the people who cash GPP’s regularly and those who fall off.
