Welcome back to Fantasy LCS everyone. I am very excited for the new split, and can’t wait to start writing about the season. I’m going to be posting my rankings throughout this weekend, and try to get a week 1 all in or fold post up. So lets start with top laners. I will be putting them in numerical order and then a breakdown at the end will be the tiers I think they should be drafted.

 

1. FNC Huni

2. H2K Odoamne

3. Liquid Quas

4. TiP Impact

5. GMB CaboChard

6. CLG ZionSpartan

7. GV Hauntzer

8. UoL Vizicsacsi

9. SK Freddy122

10. Origen Soaz

11. TSM Dyrus

12. CW Youngbuck

13. T8 Calitrolz

14. C9 Balls

15. Roccat Steve

16. Elements Jwaow

17. TDK Seraph

18. Dig Gamsu

19. Giants Werlyb

20. NME Flaresz

 

1  Huni stands alone, will probably finish in the top 3 in points again. Is worth a top pick simply because he outscores his counterparts by so much each week.

2-5 This is the next best, all 4 have put up big weeks, and have shown that they can carry their teams. I would feel good getting any of these guys in the 2-4 round range.

6-11 These are all guys who will put up either very consistent point totals or be feast or famine, but because a few of them could put up 50+ weeks they are worth getting or at least stashing for good match-ups.

12-14 These 3 are all capable of having great splits, but because of last split, and their team’s ability they are more of a sleeper pick. Cali is the shot caller and put up a few big weeks at the end of last split. He is probably the most interesting out of the 3.

15-20 These guys aren’t really worth owning until they show they can do something. If you have a good hunch with one of them then by all means take them, but if you are in a league with me, I won’t be taking any of them until they prove they can score.

Sorry for the delay in the post. Internet was cutting in and out yesterday, but it seems to have corrected itself. As a result of the delay I’m going to do a shorter post for this week. Week 4 was a really good week for the LCS, lots of upsets, awesome CLG TSM game, and just some fun games to watch. It also was a really low scoring week in comparison to the last two weeks. As a result of that I had another off week in my projections. I am slightly above .500 so this week I’m going to get that winning record much higher. Here are my week 5 All-in and Fold candidates.

 

All-In

Top- ZionSpartan (Projection: 31pts) Zion is averaging 17 pts a game for a total of 34 pts a week. He has a easy game against Dig, and a tougher matchup against C9. C9 hasn’t been their usual self so I think Zion is capable of scoring some points against them, but he may not have to if he puts up big numbers against Dig. The main thing I have to worry about here is that the Dignitas game isn’t a 25 min blowout win by CLG.

Mid- Fenix (Projection: 28pts) I’m not sure why Fenix is projected so low, he is averaging 34 pts a week. He does face two tough opponents in Pobelter and Bjergsen, but I think he has the ability to play with both of those guys. I think he will come up with a few big plays this week, which will result in him getting to his average of 34 pts.

Support- NRated (Projection: 25pts) NRated plays with the best ADC in Europe right now. Even though NRated hasn’t played as well the last two weeks, he still gets to play with a very aggressive AD and team, which will result in him putting up well over his projected 25 pts. He is a sure fire All-in in my opinion.

 

Fold

Top- Dyrus (Projetion: 33pts) Dyrus has scored better each week of the split, but I think this week he will score just below his projected 33pts. He typically isn’t one to get big kill numbers, but he is a good team fighter which results in high assist numbers. I don’t think either of their games will be 45+ min games, so I don’t expect him to have big numbers. They play Coast and Liquid, who both have good top laners too.

Mid- XiaoWeiXiao (Projection: 38pts) I am a fan of XWX, but I think 38 is to high this week. I’m thinking closer to the 34 mark for him. He plays C9 and Gravity, both have competent mid laners, and so far Impulse has looked good when Impact and Rush get going XWX has been more of a support player this split. That is another factor in why I think he is a fold candidate this week.

Team- Team Liquid (Projection: 27pts) I think Liquid will win their first game against Winterfox, but I expect them to lose to TSM. Most teams don’t break the 25 point mark unless they go 2-0. Plus changing their ADC another time won’t go as seemless as their first week with Keith. Liquid has some great players, but they haven’t been consistent enough in their play for me to trust their team this week.

This is my final NA ranking post of the preseason. In case you missed my support and ADC post click here, or if you missed my mid and jungle post click here. In my previous posts I give a 10-1 rank of each position on how I feel they will do in the upcoming Fantasy LCS season. The rankings are based on the point system that the Riot Fantasy LCS website uses, the play of the pros as of late (mainly solo queue stuff or IEM tournaments), and how the team plays. These aren’t to be your one stop rankings, but rather a piece of information that can help you come draft day.

Here are my NA Top lane rankings

10 – CaliforniaTrlolz Team 8

9 – Gamsu Dignitas

8 – Avalon Team Winterfox

7 – Cris Team Coast

6 – Hauntzer Gravity

5 – Impact Team Impulse

4 – Zionspartan CLG (will miss first week for suspension)

3 – Dyrus TSM

2 – Balls C9

1 – Quas Team Liquid

10-6 This is the lower tier, a lot of them are new to the LCS scene or have very little experience playing on the “big stage.” Top lane doesn’t put up huge fantasy numbers typically, most of last year their role was tanky champions or another ap champ to help balance the team’s damage output.

5-3 This is the 2nd tier, all three of these guys will have some weeks where they put up big numbers, and they will be pretty consistent in other weeks, but their team’s focus typically won’t be for them to get fed so they won’t have huge numbers like the other 2 could. Impact could end up dominating since he was a top player in Korea solo queue, but that doesn’t always mean success with a change in communication

2-1 These are my top tier guys, I put Quas over Balls, because of the team’s playstyles. C9 will probably be the best team this split, but because they have so many weapons they aren’t always the best fantasy guys. Quas did well in his first split in the LCS last year, and I think he will build on that success and finish at the 1 spot for NA top laners.

 

Here are my NA team rankings

10 – Team 8

9 – Dignitas

8 – Team Coast

7 – Team Winterfox

6 – Team Impulse

5 – Gravity

4 – Team Liquid

3 – TSM

2 – CLG

1 – C9

10-8 This is the lowest tier in terms of the team you can draft. I think they will struggle this year, because of both talent on their teams and the competition ahead of them. You probably don’t want to own any of these three for your fantasy team.

7-5 This is my unknown middle tier. All three of these teams have the players and the potential to finish top 4, but I don’t think they will given the 4 teams ahead of them. The only way 1 or more of these 3 climb into the top 4 is if some bad blood happens in the teams ahead of them.

4-2 All of these teams have the potential to be the 1 spot, but from what I saw from C9 at IEM I doubt they will pull it off. These teams have top tier talent, but they also all have made changes to their roster, which takes time to get on the same page, and follow through on calls made by the shotcallers.
