It’s time for the weekly all-in or fold post. For a reminder I’m going to give you 1 person at each position (this includes a team) that I think are going to outscore their Fantasy LCS projections (all-in candidates) and 6 that will score lower than their projections (fold candidates). Here is the recap of my week 1 all-in and fold.
|All-in||Projected||Actual||W or L|
|Fold||Projected||Actual||W or L|
Now here is my week 2 All-in and Fold Candidates
Top – Huni FNC (Projection: 31 pts) I don’t expect Fnatic to put up quite as many fantasy points as they did last week, but I think from what they showed last week they will be a good team in EU. Huni is a good top laner and is facing two teams that didn’t quite play up to what their expectations were in ROCCAT and Gambit. I don’t expect Huni to explode for another 65 points but I think he will beat out his projection.
Jungle – Impaler CST (Projection: 29 pts) Impaler put up good points week 1, and I think he is going to have another high scoring week. His two opponents this week are Team 8 and Gravity. Neither gave up huge points to the enemy jungler in week 1, but they didn’t shut them down either. I think Impaler will outscore his 28 point projection simply because of what I think he is expected to do for his team, which is make plays and pressure constantly. I’m pushing all-in on Impaler
Mid – Soren CW (Projection: 35 pts) I think Soren will be a high scorer on what will probably end up being a bottom team in EU. Sometimes these are the best kind of guys to target though. I expect closer to the 40 point mark from Soren since he faces Elements and MYM. Go all-in on Soren this week if you are unsure about him.
ADC -Steeelback FNC (Projection:40 pts) Another Fnatic player that I think will outpace his projection. (I almost put in two more of their players, but thought it might be overkill). I think the people at Fantasy Lolesports still aren’t sold on Fnatic, so their projections are all on the low end compared to their counterparts. Again I don’t think Fnatic will have 5 50+ point guys this week, but I think most will out perform their projection. So don’t hesitate to start Steeelback or any other Fnatic player this week.
Support – Lustboy TSM (Projection: 24 pts) TSM plays two tough bot lanes this week (Winterfox and Liquid), but I think Lustboy is a great player. He isn’t the flashiest support out there, and typically isn’t the one “making the plays,” but he plays so well in every aspect of the game that I think he will always be close to the 30 point mark.
Team – Gravity (Projection: 28 pts) Gravity showed some resolve in week 1 after losing the first game to bounce back and destroy C9. As a result I’m confident in them this week against a weaker DIG and a still uncertain CST. I can see both of these games turning into blood baths which will result in lots of towers and objectives for Gravity. I also think they will win both games, and as a result go all-in if they are one of your choices for the Team category.
Top – Quas TL (Projection: 34 pts) I fully expect Quas to finish the year in top 3 among top laners, but this is going to be one of those weeks where I don’t think he will break the 30 point mark. Liquid plays C9 and TSM even though both struggled week 1 I don’t expect them to do it a 2nd week in a row. Liquid may end up winning both games, but I don’t think Quas will be scoring machine for them. If he is your only top laner he will still get close to the 30, but I wouldn’t expect a “big” week from him.
Jungle – Diamond GMB (Projection: 26pts) Diamond looked like a dominant jungler last month at IEM and then he came out in week 1 and really struggled to make an impact. I expect another tough week for GMB and Diamond, and as a result I say fold him if you have another option.
Mid – Shiphtur DIG (Projection: 35 pts) 35 points is just to high for Shiphtur this week. He will end up around 30 because DIG expects him to make plays, and feeds him a lot of the resources. Until DIG can show me they can play consistent I won’t be playing any DIG players. So fold on Shiphtur this week.
ADC – Woolite ROC (Projection:31 pts) Woolite is a good ADC, but I think ROCCAT isn’t quite there yet for him to put up big numbers. I don’t think he will struggle every week, but he hasn’t had a favorable schedule to start the year. He plays FNC and Elements this week so I guess Woolite ends up with around 26 points.
Support – Nisbeth MYM (Projection: 27 pts) No MYM player is worth starting until they show us any reason to start them. 27 points from a support is a huge number, for example only 8 supports last week scored over 27 points. Nisbeth wasn’t even close to that with a 9 point showing in their two games. He is only owned in one of my leagues but if you own him. Please don’t start him this week.
Team – Impulse (Projection: 31 pts) Impulse played well in the first week, and only came out with 23 points. They play CLG and Team 8 this week. I don’t think they will win both games, in fact they could very easily lose both games, and if you lose both of your games it is really hard to break the 20 point mark. In other words fold Impulse in week 2 if you have them starting.
