What do you mean by 'Best and Worst Performers'?
Glad you asked, we review players from each role that racked up those fantasy points and shame those who flopped (in a nice way). This article aims to give you player insight into the past week’s matches because we know you may not watch every single second of the LCS and LEC like we do! With that said, here are the LoL Fantasy Best and Worst Performers Week 7 Spring 2020.
Keep in mind that it’s based on their salary, expected performance and how they actually performed.
Team: Evil Geniuses
Discussion: It was a banner week for Evil Geniuses all around the board, as they continued to pick up steam heading into the final weeks before playoffs. Kumo went deathless on the weekend and picked up a combined 12 kills, making him tyhe highest scoring top laner in Week 7, while only costing a measly $180,000. He was by far one of the highest value players of the week.
Discussion: Week 7 was FlyQuest’s chance to pull ahead of the “soup” that is the middle of the LCS standings, but they dropped the ball. As a consequence, all of Flyquest had terrible value, and V1per was no exception. He only had one kills across both games, and a combined 7 deaths, for his worst weekend to date.
Team: Team SoloMid
Discussion: Dardoch (and TSM as a whole) showed up HUGE this weekend when they demolished Cloud9 in their first game of the week, shocking most and pleasing some true believers (shoutout to @Relise_lol who had an all TSM lineup and placed first in Week 7!) Funnily enough, most of Dardoch’s points came from that C9 match, their next match versus FlyQuest was a much closer game, but still netted him quite a few points.
Team: Team Liquid
Discussion: Just when it started to look like Team Liquid were finally turning things around, they have another 0-2 weekend. Not only was it an 0-2, but it was versus CLG and IMT, two teams that many think aren’t even going to make playoffs. Broxah really struggled to pick up points in these losses, despite one of them going for 50 minutes. Overall just another disappointing week for the worlds finalist, Broxah.
Team: Schalke 04
Discussion: Just by looking at his points, you’d think Abbedagge was coming off a dominant 2-0 week, but it was actually a 1-1! His KDA in the loss wasn’t too impressive, 2-4-4, but his 490 CS allowed him to still pick up a decent amount of points. The lion’s share of his points came from his incredible 8-2-5 Sett game versus SK, which ultimately catapulted him into high value territory.
Discussion: From winning the LCS player of the week award in Week 5, to being the lowest value player in Week 7, it’s been a bumpy ride for PowerOfEvil. Just like the rest of his teammates this week, POE struggled to pick up points in both of their losses, with a good chunk of the points coming from CS (you hate to see it).
Discussion: After playing on the academy squad for the first 6 weeks of LCS, Apollo made his triumphant return to the main stage with two outstanding games! Similar to Abbedagge, despite having a 1-1 week, Apollo was able to pick up quite a few points in the loss, the absolutely smash the second game (8-0-3 on Aphelios!). Apollo was a real sleeper pick, with not many people aware of his skill level, which made the payoff even sweeter for anyone that bet big on the veteran bot laner.
Discussion: Week 7 was really rough for WildTurtle, especially considering he was the second lowest scoring player on FlyQuest, the team that had the lowest scorers on average out of any team. With a combined KDA over both games of 1-7-2, it’s clear to see why he scored so low.
No other clear bot lane under performers in Week 7
Discussion: Vander was without a doubt the most valuable player not only the LoL Fantasy Best and Worst Performers Week 7 Spring 2020, but the entire split so far. Both of his games were exactly the kinds of games you want to see from a support. Single digit kills, double digit assists, and less than five deaths. It was especially impressive considering that he played Nautilus in both matches, a champion known for sacrificing himself to get those juicy engages. It’ll be hard to top this barring another low salary support playing something akin to Zeyzal’s Rumble last week or a pop off Pyke game.
Discussion: As is tradition for the team with the most under performing players on the week, the support for FlyQuest, Ignar, is Week 7’s lowest value support pick. There’s not much to say except when your teammates can’t get kills, you cant get any points from assists, plus you can’t CS, so it’s a done deal.
Discussion: Evil Geniuses quietly had quite a dominate 2-0 week, and are really heating up just in time for playoffs. They secured 4 dragons in each game, first tower in both games, and one of their victories was under 30 minutes. FNC and C9 normally dominate the team score department, but the near 200K salary EG beat out everyone else in Week7, earning them their spot.
Discussion: FlyQuest were without a doubt the biggest bomb in Week 7. They had two chances to prove that their were the definitive 2nd best team in the LCS, and they blew it. Both games were more or less blowouts, and these 10 points were all they had to show for it when everything was said and done.
