Whether you are playing to win the F2P Cup, 1v1 Challenge, or taking on a Squad Battle, we all are after the W. We may even make some money on the way. So let’s take a look and see which players should be in your quarantine bubble and which players you should socially distance from this week.
- SLEEPER: A medium-to-low priced player that is set up well to shock the world (in a good way)
- BREAKOUT: A player that is poised to drastically outperform their price, whatever it may be
- BUST: A medium-to-high priced player that will fail to return value on their price
So far in his young LEC career, Hirit has the same amount of 20+ point games as he does <10 point games. He is equally boom as he is bust, but this is a rare week where MSF is favored to win, and then we all know how bloody G2 matches can be.
We haven’t seen the upside we want from Broken Blade, but there is something to be said about consistency. Despite two losses, Broken Blade has scored 12+ points in all but one game this season. Now, the team that just handed G2 and Rogue their first losses of the season get a much easier schedule.
Odoamne has now failed to get more than 1 Kill in 5 of his 7 games as a Rogue member. Pair that with the worst Kill Participation among all Tops in the LEC, it is hard to see Odoamne having a big week.
It is easy to say that Vitality is a massive disappointment and that you shouldn’t think of putting them in your lineup. However, despite a 5 game losing streak, Skeanz has refused to be a fantasy bust. He has only failed to score 10 points once and now gets a much easier week after just going through the gauntlet of the Top 4 LEC teams of 2020.
We may be seeing Gilius breakout into GodGilius even before S04 is facing elimination. Now that he is able to get his hands on Pantheon, he has been an absolute menace on the rift. AST & MAD are among the 3 teams that give up the most fantasy points to Junglers per game.
After a very underwhelming week that featured their first loss and an unimpressive win over Astralis, it is tough to see Rogue beating G2. Inspired has proven that he is not the ‘pop off one game makes up a week’ type of fantasy player, so unless he steals a second win, it will be tough for him to return $290k worth of value.
This season, we have very clearly learned that Milica is low on the LEC Mid Laner Power Rankings. It is even more apparent when you look at his point totals as every time he faces a Mid better than his, he fails to score 15 points. However, the two games in which he was the better mid, he scored 23+ in each. That should be the case this week so that he can bring some sneaky value.
Last 4 Games for Abbedagge: 4 wins, four games of 20+ points, only 5 Deaths to 37 Assists. Just gaudy numbers for a player that now faces his easiest matchups of the year.
Humanoid has his ups and downs, but all signs are pointing to down for him this week. He will be outmatched in the Mid Lane this week in both games as he faces Larssen and a surging Abbedagge.
I know NA fans love crapping on Kobbe due to his poor TSM performance, but he has been much better in 2021. Despite only winning a single game, Kobbe has 19+ points in 5 of 7 games. He ranks 3rd at the position in PTS/L, give him a decent floor with tremendous upside.
I didn’t want to talk about another S04 player, but Neon gave me no choice. Once again, he is quietly putting up stupid good numbers for a streaking S04 team. Teams continue to let him take Kaisa, as he has played her the last 5 straight games, 3 of which have been 33+ point wins.
Inconsistency makes decision making so much more difficult. Not only is there a chance of Carzzy just flopping on his own (he now has three games with 5+ Deaths), we now have to worry about him playing Support-focused Seraphine. Too many variables to have any confidence here.
Do you know which Support leads the LEC in Kill Participation, Kills, and is 2nd in Fantasy Points/Win? Okay, it is obvious that I’m describing Treatz, but it is still very impressive.
It would be sooooo Hyli for him to fall flat on his face now that his price has finally risen to Top 2 at the position. His 3.3 point win over G2 could be a precursor of pain to come.
SK Gaming has gotten one win in every single week this season. That trend is shaping up to go another week, too, with lowly Vitality on the slate. Then you are an FNC flop away from the biggest value at the position.
Vitality is the only team under $250k that I would not be absolutely shocked if they went 2-0. In the preseason, we would be expecting a 2-0 here for the bees. Let’s see if they can turn their season around.
I would rather not spend $290k on the 2nd priciest option at Team on somebody who has dropped 2 of their last 3. Even If I have to take on more risk spending less, I’d rather profit from those savings than tanking a week going all-in on G2.
