There are just two weeks remaining in the summer split of the LCS. Some of you may be in a heated battle for first place in your league, maybe you just couldn’t string together enough wins so you are in the middle of the pack, or you are just trying to get out of last place with the final weeks. Either way the season has been an enjoyable one so far. Here are my results from last week (Had some really close calls on my support picks) and then my picks for week 8.

All-in Projected Actual W or L
Viz 30 59.49 W
Helios 24 10.99 L
PowerofEvil 37 71.75 W
CandyPanda 42 20.79 L
Kasing 24 23.53 L
UoL 24 36 W
Fold Projected Actual W or L
Dyrus 35 20.51 W
Amazing 34 28.19 W
Febevin 42 61.53 L
Freeze 36 10.03 W
BunnyFuFu 45 44.26 W
CLG 34 38 L
This Week W-L 7W-5L Total W-L 39W-31L-1T


All-in (players that will score more than their projections)

Top- Cabochard (proj: 25pts) Cabo has scored more than 25 four times this split, and with match-ups against Origen and UoL (both teams are good) he will do just enough to get over the 25 point mark.

Jung- Fr3deric (proj: 25pts) Fr3deric has been neither a fantasy stud or a fantasy dud. He averages right at 28 points a week, and with match-ups against Roccat and H2K that is probably what he will end up with this week.

Mid- Ryu (proj: 36pts) H2K hasn’t been as dominant as of late, but their match-ups this week (giants and CW) are too good to pass up. Ryu will end up with just above his average of 40 points for week 7.

ADC- Apollo (proj: 38pts) Apollo has been one of the best ADC’s this split, his worst week was over 33 points and his best was 71. Match-ups against TSM and TDK don’t scream fantasy points, but he is a consistent scoring machine. Look for him to get in the mid 40’s this week.

Supp- Adrian (proj: 29pts) Who is the 2nd highest scoring support in the summer split? If you guessed Adrian you are right. The bot lane for TiP has quietly been one of the biggest reasons they are winning games, and you should expect that to continue.

Team- Giants (proj: 22pts) Giants average 24 points a week, and they have broken 30 the last two weeks. They won’t go 2-0 this week, but they will do enough to get in the mid 20’s.


Fold (players that will score less than their projections)

Top- Flarez (proj: 30pts) Flarez has managed a score of more than 30 only twice this split. If he was an option for you, he shouldn’t be.

Jung- Move (proj: 42pts) Move has been a consistent fantasy producer this split, but only breaking 42 points twice so far means he is a great fold option with that projection. He will probably finish right around his average of 37 points.

Mid- Pobelter (proj:41pts) 37, 19.5, 17.3 those are the last three weeks for Pobelter. He was the highest scoring mid laner after week 4, but he has now fallen to the 5th. He will still have a good week, but won’t quite hit the 40 point barrier.

ADC- Otter (proj: 35pts) When looking at the numbers this is a fair projection for Otter. However, given last week’s results and this weeks opponents it doesn’t look good for Enemy. 28 points is about where Otter will end up.

Supp- Hylissang (proj: 31pts) After 2 big weeks for Hylissang (and UoL), it seems as though he will come back down to the mean. He currently averages 28 points a week, but before the last 2 weeks he was closer to the 24 point mark. UoL probably won’t win both of their games given the jungle switch, therefore Hylissang will not prosper in week 7.

Team- Enemy (proj: 28pts) Enemy has only broken 20 points twice this split (22, 24). Don’t see why that would change this week against C9 and Liquid. Fold enemy if you were considering them.


Who are your week 8 All-in or Fold candidates?


Week 3 is just a few days away, and if you are like me you have been trying to figure out who is going to be the surprise this week, and which of the bigger names are going to have an off week. After looking over match ups, points scored each game, and trying to see what teams allow points to which positions I think I have some pretty good All-in candidates  and Fold candidates for you. I had a great week 2 so I’m confident going into this week. Here were my week 2 results.

All-In Projected Actual W or L
Huni 31 51.48 W
Impaler 29 25.7 L
Soren 35 25.24 L
Steeelback 40 53.39 W
Lustboy 24 38.91 W
Gravity 28 39 W
Fold Projected Actual W or L
Quas 34 6.92 W
Diamond 26 25.38 W
Shiphtur 35 13.07 W
Woolite 31 40.12 L
Nisbeth 27 19.61 W
Impulse 31 17 W
This Week W-L 9W-3L Total W-L 15W-7L

ALL-IN (Players that will exceed their projected points)

TOP- Cris (Projected: 29pts) Even though Coast hasn’t won many games, they have been in every single game. Cris has been the 2nd highest top laner, even though Coast plays C9 and Liquid (I expect Coast to go 0-2 this week). I think they will make both games close, and Cris will have a high kill participation, which always results in fantasy points. I’m thinking around the 35-36 mark for him.

JUNG- Santorin (Projected: 34pts) TSM has a super easy schedule this week, and usually when teams go 2-0 all of their players have scored well. Santorin seems to know exactly what his role is on TSM, which is play smart and create opportunities for Turtle and Bjerg to make the plays. Because of this and his 3rd lowest 8 deaths from Jungle made him very appealing. Go all-in on Santorin week 3.

MID- Ryu (Projected: 34pts) Ryu has secretly been one of the most consistent Mid laners. He is probably available in a lot of leagues too. He is averaging 16.4 pts a game, but he has 8 deaths on the season which is 6th fewest of mid laners. I think he has decent match ups with SK and Gambit this week. NiQ has the most deaths of all mid laners which will mean a few points in game 2 for Ryu. He may only get 8-10 points in the game against SK, but he will make up for it in game 2.

ADC- Altec (Projected: 34pts) Altec is off to a slow start, but he is still a very skilled AD and I think this is a week you can plug him in and expect big points. He plays CLG and Team 8 this week, which aren’t great match ups. However, Team 8 has allowed teams to score a lot of fantasy points against them. I also, think both games could be on the longer side which usually means more points scored.

SUP- Aphromoo (Projected: 29pts) Going into the year I was high on Aphro and Lustboy, both are worthy candidates for All-in, but I’m going to go with Aphro here for more variety in my picks. He has always been a playmaker for CLG, and it seems like he is in a zone in the early going. I think both games against Winterfox and Gravity will be close and could see 45+ minute games. If that happens lots of points will be scored by all players in those games.

TEAM- TSM (Projected: 29pts) Playing Impulse and Dignitas in week 3 should be a 2-0 week for TSM. They play safe and don’t give up objectives easily. Because of that I think they will break 30 pts rather easily this week. If you can grab them off the waivers do your team a favor and grab them.

FOLD (Players that will not meet their projected points)

TOP- Wickd (Projected: 29pts) Wickd has been really unimpressive so far. He has been the worst of all the players on Elements, and even in their big scoring week he only managed 32 pts. He faces a weak MYM and then SK in game 2. I think he will score some good points in the first match, but may be the leader in deaths in game 2. I would look for other options if you can if Wickd is your guy this week.

JUNG- Airwaks (Projected: 29pts) The wolves have struggled and I think they will again this week. UoL have been really aggressive and I think that will make Airwaks struggle in that game, and I think Gambit won’t allow him to make a ton of plays on the map. I’m seeing closer to the 24 point mark for him. In other words fold if he is your starter this week.

MID-XiaoWeiXiao (Projected: 31pts) Impulse has 2 wins on the year, but they have been underwhelming in my opinion. XWX is a great mid laner, but he hasn’t quite hit his stride yet. I think with his match ups against Gravity and TSM, I don’t see him getting to the 30 pts mark. So him and most of Impulse is Fold for me this week.

ADC- Cop (Projected:37pts) Cop is the prime example of consistency over feast or famine. He makes himself useful in team fights, and because of that puts up fantasy points. I think this week he will score a little less than what his projections say. Since he is facing the wildcard impulse and a quality CLG. I’m going to say fold on Cop this week if you have better options.

SUP- Edward (Projected: 27pts) I really believe Gambit is close to breaking through, they have been in their gaming house for 2 weeks now and I think that will help their overall follow through on their shot-calling. They have a winnable schedule this week, but I think they are still 1 week away from starting to fully click. Because of that I’m saying fold on their bot lane.

TEAM- SK (Projected: 35pts) SK has been dominant so far early on the year, and I think they could very easily go 2-0 again this week, but I have a feeling they are going to lose their game to Elements. It is hard for teams to score more than 30 unless they win both games, so I think SK falls short of their high projection. (Sometimes you have to be bold in your predictions right?)

Points may change in the next 24 hours. I am going to be driving home, Tuesday, Feb 3rd, so I will update the points when I can
