Given the nature of our first matchup, it’s important to choose between FD and DK. You can make the right lineup work on either site, but in a 2 gamer, there’s not as many options. We’ll discuss it below, but it could be a very rewarding 2 gamer.

BLG(+118) V RW(-154) (5 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||32:36||33:36|
RW’s W/L might not look impressive, but they’ve won every single series since they turned their luck around. Now that they’re against a team like BLG, they should be the obvious choice. What makes this so interesting for DK is the pricing; BLG players are more expensive. Given how strong RW is when they win, this doesn’t make much sense. RW seems to be the best option for this slate given their success when winning, and the DK players will have an easier time affording the solid places.
BLG Top Picks:
RW Top Picks:
There are some great options on RW’s side of things, so you can take as many of their players as you want. Haro has been known to be particularly effective, but all 4 picks should work very well for you. BLG will do alright with Meteor and FoFo, but given RW’s chances, they aren’t as attractive options. The other matchup is sure to be great for EDG, but that doesn’t mean you should grab 4 EDG players. That’s going to be very difficult for the FD players at any rate, so this is a nice alternative to invest in.
EDG(-323) V LNG(+232) (7 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||34:33||31:48|
Despite EDG’s weaker performances this split, LNG is a very weak team and should be dismantled quite easily. The favorites definitely look solid here, so you won’t save much salary from this matchup. Still, EDG’s roster has great potential and they’re fighting one of the weakest teams in the LPL, so we can expect some high scores out of this matchup as well. Should be a rewarding slate.
EDG Top Picks
LNG Top Picks
Xiaoxiang is a decent option against Flandre, and you’ll probably be better off with Haro instead of Jiejie. Jiejie is good, but as always there’s a sub risk. Scout is a great option as well, although Maple is one of LNG’s strongest players and could give him a bit of a fight. Just be careful of your salary; it’s going to be difficult to form your lineup on FD, but remember the team slot is going to be the best to sacrifice. Since you have to take players from 3 different teams, you need to make a sacrifice, and the team slot will likely lose you the least amount of points. The other ideal situation is a top laner doing well on his own yet the team loses the game, so you could grab Flandre and hope for a solid performance from him.
