Okay so your lineup is set, now upon which head do you lay the Captain Crown? Pick 2 Champions for your Captain, and if they play either one, you get 50% bonus to the fantasy points in those games. There are different strategies to use when picking a Captain, but the end goal is always to get those extra points. Getting the Captain bonuses separates the chumps from the champs, so be ready to read the meta and use that crystal ball!

  • Best Overall Captain: A threat to lead all players in scoring with a predictable Champion pool
  • Risky Captain: High upside value, but more risk due to Champion variety
  • Safe Captain: Sacrificing some upside to make sure that you get the Champion picks correct

Best Overall captain: G2 Jankos: Olaf & Graves

Jankos Captain Spring Week 2 2021

Look at that, a Jungler on top! When you are playing against the new Caps/Rekkles version of G2, you have to focus your bans on Mid & Bot. Jankos is getting exactly who he wants, and is making the most of it as he has finally returned to his high-Kill potential Jungler style.

Risky Captain: RGE Hans Sama: Kaisa & Aphelios

Hans Sama Captain Spring Week 2 2021

Talk about a SuperWeek! Hans Sama was absolutely on fire in Week 1, having 2 separate 8+ Kill games on Kaisa. The Champions here isn’t the risky part, it is more whether Hans Sama can keep up the ridiculous pace. Look out Rekkles & Upset, there is a new top-tier ADC looking to take over the LEC.

safe Captain: G2 Caps: Akali & Twisted Fate

Caps Captain Spring Week 2 2021

I mean, if people are just going to let Caps take Twisted Fate each game, he won’t complain! It limits his upside as the Kill potential goes down some, but there are just oh so many Assists to be had. Caps’ in-lane opponent will just be relieved he isn’t constantly getting solo killed, so TF should keep making it through.

Deeper Dive - Captain Role Meta

LoL top lane icon

Top Lane

Fat Man and the Croc! Top Lane is all about Gragas & Renekton right now. Camille is making moves, but still nothing on those top two. This lane still isn’t Captain worthy, even if you have Wunder.

LoL Jungler Icon


As you can tell by the Top Captain of the week, Jungler stock has been rising! There are too many other priority bans so Graves keeps getting through. Olaf, Hecarim and Taliyah are also very popular and still bring great Kill potential. Pantheon is never going to get through though.

LoL Mid Lane Icon

Mid Lane

Everybody loves Twisted Fate! The cardmaster may reduce the scoring upside of players somewhat with less Kill potential, but the Assist numbers are off the charts. And with Caps & Larssen prioritizing the Champion, you know he is good! The tricky part with mid Captain is who to pair with TF. Lucian, Orianna, Viktor and Zoe all make their own cases.

LoL bot lane icon

Bot Lane

Kaisa Kaisa Kaisa. No surprise there. However, it is none other than Aphelios that has emerged as the second option at the position, with Jhin & Samira behind. This is still the go-to position for Captains, as you can make a strong case for crowning your Bot Laner, regardless of who you have there.

Thresh, Leona and some Alistar. Love the engage Champs.
