Champion Picks: Week 5

LoL Champion Picks

LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 5 Spring 2020 is a crucial article to read for picking the right Champions for your Captain! If you are unsure how captains work, we recommend reading up on our Scoring System.

In this article we take you through the top 3 picks for each role and provide some insight into whether they are worth picking.

TOP LANE CHAMPIONS

 LEC Most Played Champions:  
 Aatrox – 19 times (6 games last week)
 Ornn – 12 times (1 games last week)
Sett – 12 times (New to top 3)

Recommendation for LEC Captains:
This week the winner is…….Aatrox again. It’s super hard to go past this Champion (even after the recent patch), teams are loving this dude! Sett is climbing the leaderboard which could be a viable second option, Ornn on the other hand was only played once which is a little concerning.

 LCS Most Played: 
 Aatrox – 23 times (4 games last week)
 Ornn – 11 times (5 game last week)
 Gangplank – 10 times (2 games last week)

Recommendation for LCS Captains: 
Ornn and Aatrox were clearly played the most last weekend, either of these Champions are worthy picks. It’s a lot less one sided than the LEC picks of these two Champions, however, Aatrox is winning with week by week consistency and hence welcomed to the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 5 Spring 2020.

 

JUNGLE CHAMPIONS

LEC Most Played:
Gragas
– 20 times (5 games last week) 
 Lee Sin – 17 times (4 games last week)
Jarvan IV/Elise – 12 times 

Recommendation for LEC Captains: 
Our beer slurping warrior Gragas is the hot favorite, closely followed by Lee Sin. Both are huge play makers and fit really well into most comps so we predict the trend will follow for Week 5. 

LCS Most Played:
 Lee Sin – 21 times (4 games last week) 
 Jarvan IV – 16 times (2 games last week) 
 Gragas – 8 times (3 games last week)

Recommendation for LCS Captains:
If you are picking a Jungler for your Captain the only safe bet is Lee Sin. Most players are playing this Champion at least one game, so it makes for a pretty safe x1.5 points for at least one match (let’s hope they score a ton in that match)

MID LANE CHAMPIONS

LEC Most Played:
 LeBlanc – 14 times (2 games last week)   
 Zoe – 9 times (4 games last week)    
 Cassiopeia – 8 times (3 games last week)    

Recommendation for LEC Captains: 
Hopefully you took our advice last week and didn’t pick a Mid Laner as your Captain….this role is sooo hard to predict and it doesn’t change for the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 5 Spring 2020. The worst part is their isn’t consistency between the LCS and LEC. Zoe seems like a safer bet at this point as LeBlanc seems to be getting banned a fair bit.

LCS Most Played:
 Zoe – 12 times (1 games last week)   
 Syndra – 10 times (2 games last week)
Orianna  9 times (1 games last week)

Recommendation for LCS Captains: 
Top 3 Champions were played less than two times….thanks for nothing LCS teams. This Champion Meta is wild, this is fairly normal for Mid Laners as they have a large pool of Champions they can play.

BOT LANE CHAMPIONS

LEC Most Played:
Aphelios – 22 times (7 games last week)
 Miss Fortune – 17 times (4 games last week)
 Senna – 16 times (0 games last week)*

Recommendation for LEC Captains: 
Aphelios.

We know that wasn’t a complete sentence, it just looked edgy. It’s way too risky picking any other Champion at this point, so we recommend Aphelios. That is 7 out of 10 games he was played on either team. 

*Senna is not worth picking anymore.

LCS Most Played:
 Aphelios – 22 times (4 games last week)
 Senna– 20 times (0 games last week)
Xayah– 12 times (2 games last week)

Recommendation for LCS Captains: 
The LCS is being difficult as always and Bot Laners have started testing out a range of Champions post the recent patch changes. 

*Senna is not worth picking as identified in the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 5 Spring 2020.

SUPPORT CHAMPIONS

LEC Most Played:


Braum – 22 times (3 games last week)
 Nautilus– 18 times (4 games last week)
 Rakan – 15 times (5 game last week)

Recommendation for LEC Captains: 
Braum was the sure favorite going into last week, but now the preference in LEC Support Champions have shifted in the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 5 Spring 2020. Rakan was the biggest mover of the week, followed by Nautilus. In the LCS, Nautilus was the most picked which indicates he may be a worthy pick across the board, even before Rakan.

LCS Most Played:

Nautilus – 15 times (5 games last week)
Tahm Kench – 15 times (0 games last week)
 Rakan/Thresh– 12 times (2 games last week)

Recommendation for LCS Captains: 
Poor Tahmmmmm, went from a sure pick to completely abandoned. This is a positive for LCS Captains, as it shows Nautilus being the standout pick, meaning the choice is much easier!

Overview

There has been a lot of debate about which role is the best to pick for a Captain. When deciding which player you want to choose as Captain I would recommend weighing the average score, variation of Champion in the role and whether Champions are consistent between the LEC and LCS.

Here are our recommendations by role:

  1. Bot Lane – Aphelios
  2. Top Lane – Aatrox
  3. Jungler – Lee Sin (LCS) & Gragas (LEC)
  4. Support – Nautilus
  5. Mid Laner – Who knows??
