Champion Picks: Week 9

The LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 9 Spring 2020 article is a helpful resource for determining which Champion’s you should pick for your Captain each week. 

If you are unsure how captains work, we recommend reading up on our Scoring System.

For Newbies:
There are 148 Champions in League of Legends. At the start of each match players take it in turn to pick Champions they want to play, and ban Champions they don’t want their opponents to play.

TOP LANE CHAMPIONS

LEC ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Aatrox – 31 times (2 games last week)
 Sett – 28 times (2 games last week) 
 Gangplank – 22 times (1 game last week)

Analysis for Captain

Ergghh, LEC Top Lane meta looked less stable over the weekend. Not sure if it was because of the short break or whether teams are trying to pick smart over safe. We would avoid an LEC Top Laner for Captain this week.

LCS ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Aatrox – 43 times (5 games last week)
 Sett – 26 times (1 game last week) 
 Ornn – 18 times (3 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

The LCS didn’t reflect the LEC’s choices this weekend. Aatrox is still a very popular choice and we recommend sticking with him.

JUNGLE CHAMPIONS

LEC ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Gragas – 40 times (8 games last week) 
 Lee Sin – 33 times (3 games last week)
  Jarvan IV/Sejuani– 15 times (1 game last week)

Analysis for Captain

Wow, Gragas is popular…8 games makes him a must pick for next week if you were going to pick a Jungler for Captain.

LCS ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Lee Sin – 38 times (2 games last week)  
 Gragas – 28 times (5 games last week)
 Jarvan IV – 24 times (2 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

Gragas was trailing the LEC in popularity for the LCS. However, after some huge wins with the Champion, his stock value should trend upwards.

MID LANE CHAMPIONS

LEC ANALYSIS

Most Played

 LeBlanc – 19 times (1 game last week)   
 Azir  – 16 times (2 games last week)    
 Zoe – 15 times (2 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

Yeah…wouldn’t pick an LEC Mid Laner again this week. That means we have recommended avoiding them in the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 9 Spring 2020! 

LCS ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Zoe – 28 times (1 game last week)   
 Syndra – 23 times (2 games last week)
Orianna  18 times (2 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

Zoe was trending in the right direction, but this week she dropped off hard! Mid is such a hard meta to predict and often these players have a large player pool. It’s back to avoiding Mid Captains again (unless someone is spamming a single Champ)

BOT LANE CHAMPIONS

LEC ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Aphelios – 42 times (3 games last week)
 Miss Fortune – 35 times (4 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

We decided to remove the third most popular Champion for Bot Lane, Miss Fortune and Aphelios have been such staple Champions, we continue to ONLY back these two in the LoL Fantasy Champion Picks Week 9 Spring 2020.

LCS ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Aphelios – 38 times (4 games last week)
 Miss Fortune – 31 times (3 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

Similar to the LEC, the LCS have had these two Champions week on week. The Third Champion in both regions has changed every week, this creates confusion so let’s just take it out!

SUPPORT CHAMPIONS

LEC ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Braum – 35 times (1 game last week)
 Nautilus – 35 times (4 games last week)
 Rakan – 25 times (1 game last week)

Analysis for Captain

Braum seems to be falling off a bit with LEC supports, Nautilus has such better engage and with assassins being played it’s easier to fight with him over a defensive Champion like Braum.

LCS ANALYSIS

Most Played

 Tahm Kench – 34 times (5 games last week)
Nautilus – 31 times (5 games last week)
 Rakan/Thresh– 18 times (3 games last week)

Analysis for Captain

Tahm and Naut made a statement this week in the LCS. I love these two…the issue is that the LCS lacks supports that score well.

THE WRAP UP

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.
