This weeks post isn’t going to have as much depth. It has been a tough last few days for our son, so I’m a little tired and don’t have the time to jot down everything. As a result just going to give the picks for the week. Last week was my worst week I have had in a while so this is a bounce back week for me.

ADC is one of the two high scoring positions in the fantasy LCS. Usually smart to get 1 good one in the first 3 rounds, but if you decide to pick other positions their is high parity in points scored at the ADC position.

  1. Zven
  2. Doublelift
  3. Forg1vengre
  4. Hjarnan
  5. Sneaky
  6. Rekkles
  7. Piglet
  8. Wildturtle
  9. Altec
  10. Stixxay
  11. Steelback
  12. Emperor
  13. Freeze
  14. Mrrallez
  15. Apollo
  16. Adryh
  17. Keith
  18. Kobbe
  19. Mash
  20. Safir

1-4 These should be the highest scoring ADCs at season end. They have shown they can put up big points they are on talented teams, and they are unafraid to make big plays.

5-9 These will be the most consistent guys you can grab at ADC. They all can be in the top ADC conversation (fantasy wise), but they probably won’t be the highest scoring because of the teams they are on and their own play-styles.

10-15 This group of 6 has LCS experience (except Stixxay) and will be great #2 ADCs for you to own. I think CLG, and UoL will have good fantasy splits, and I’m a little low on Ren and Dig.

16-20 I don’t see these guys getting much higher than the bottom 5. Obviously every season there are a few guys/teams that play way better than everyone thought so don’t ever get married to “rankings” or “projections.” Go with who is playing well and the guys you prefer to pull for.

Group A plays this Thursday, which means every team plays three games. In your daily league you will get the choice of 4 players at each position. This group was the most competitive group of all the groups the first weekend. Every team got at least one win and no team went undefeated. The choices are smaller each day, but knowing the strengths of the teams helps us decide on whom we should pick. Here is a quick breakdown of each team, and who should be the best bang for their buck (I will be using Alphadraft’s salary for my examples of this post)

Pain Gaming – Even though they did beat Flash Wolves in a game, they will have the lowest fantasy point total of the 4 teams. The one thing that Pain has done well in their games is group and get picks. They have the highest kill participation of their members of every team (all 5 players are in the top 20 of Kill Participation). However they didn’t have a single person in the top 20 of kills or assists. For that reason I don’t think any of the pain members are worth buying for this group. If you have to buy someone for cheap Kami is your best bet.

Flash Wolves – The Flash Wolves were never out of a game the first weekend. They were upset by Pain, but they were winning most of the game. They didn’t have any huge performances from their players, at least no one player had a 40-50 point game. They did have a few that showed they could be worth getting when the price is right. The ones to look out for are Steak, Karsa, and Swordart. Steak has particularly good value for these match-ups, and played even with Smeb and Zion the opening games.

 

CLGlogo

Counter Logic Gaming – CLG is tied for first, but showed that they are beatable. They had some fantasy studs the first weekend though. If you take away the Koo game Doublelift and Pobelter had 1 death between them. Doublelift had 14 kills in the three games (13 in the two games against FW and PNG) and Pobelter had 27 assists in the three games (he had 2 in the game against Koo). These are the two that I think are worth owning in any lineup you make. If you don’t end up with both of them than Doublelift should be given the edge because he will usually lead the team in kills. Both Zion and Aphro are great pickups too, but I think you can get more value from the other team’s top and support.

 

koologo

Koo Tigers – Even though Koo lost their first match-up against FW it appears that they are the best team out of the four. I would be comfortable with owning any of the Koo players for the three games this Thursday, but if you want to hedge your bet with some other team’s players than these are the three that should perform best. Gorilla had 2 great games and 1 mediocre game, but since he is $400 cheaper than Aphro and the same price as Swordart I think you get the most value with him as your support. Pray is also a great buy. Pray is $600 cheaper than Doublelift and the same price as NL/Kkramer, even though he finished with only 1 less kill, and 3 more assists than Double. The bot lane for Koo could be a steal. The last buy should be Hojin. He is the best jungler of all the group A teams and is only a little more expensive despite putting up much bigger numbers throughout the games.

 

Here is a lineup that I’m running

Top – FW Steak $6900

Jung – Koo Hojin $7600

Mid – CLG Pobelter $7900

ADC – Koo Pray $8000

Support –  Koo Gorilla $7100

Flex – CLG Doublelift $8600

Team – Koo Tigers $3800
