With five teams tied for second place with an 8-5 record, the last five games of the season are critical for playoff seeding. With Cloud9 sitting atop the standings at 11-2, they are most likely to finish as the number one team entering playoffs. However, everyone was saying the exact same thing last summer, so we’ll just have to see how the rest of the season plays out.
Here’s a partial lineup of players who have shown steady growth over the season for March 6 on DraftKings and FanDuel
|Top Lane||Finn||$5,600 DK, $7,500 FD|
|Jungle||Broxah||$6,600 DK, $7,900 FD|
|Support||IgNar||$5,600 DK, $7,800 FD|
CLG has started their miracle run towards making spring playoffs. It’ll be a difficult road ahead as they must win out and one of the five teams who are tied for second at 8-5 must lose out. So, they’ll need to be perfect the rest for the rest of the season and get a little luck on the way. Both Finn ($5,600 DK, $7,500 FD) and Broxah ($6,600 DK, $7,900 FD) have been key for CLG’s last to wins and strong early game performances. Finn has been CLG’s strongest player since the end of week two where CLG had been finding massive early game success but failed snowball those leads into wins. After Broxah joined finally was able to join the team CLG instantly showed improvements, continuing their successful early games while being more competitive in the mid-late game. CLG has looked good in their last two games and should continue against a weak FlyQuest.
IgNar ($5,600 DK, $7,800 FD) has been improving each game looking to return to his all-pro level from summer 2020. He seems to have found his comfort zone on Rell which is his new version of Rakan. The support meta has narrowed to few champions with a focus on hard engagers, IgNar’s specialty. Evil Geniuses got a much needed win over 100 Thieves to get their shaky season back on track. IgNar’s consistency should help Evil Geniuses against the weaker teams whom EG have struggled against.

Please note that Damonte has been subbed out for 100 Thieves during this weekend’s matches. Former starting mid laner and academy mid laner for 100 Thieves, ry0ma, will be taking over. FanDuel has not yet added ry0ma to their player database so he is unable to be selected for this weekend’s matches. Therefore, you are unable to select a mid laner for 100 Thieves for Saturday’s games. Hopefully ry0ma’s toolkit will be better suited for the meta and give 100 Thieves a much-needed playoff push towards the end of the season.
FanDuel Lineup for March 6
|Top Lane||Finn||$7,500 FD|
|Mid Lane||PowerOfEvil||$8,400 FD|
|AD Carry||Deftly||$10,200 FD|
|Remaining Salary||$100 FD|
While Neo ($12,300 DK, $10,100 FD) didn’t have the strongest week four, he’s bound for a turnaround game against Golden Guardians. Golden Guardians have the weakest bot lane in the league and can be exploited by Neo and aphromoo. Neo has the second and fith highest points per game among AD carries on FanDuel and DraftKings respectively and with the 1.5x multiplier as MVP will rack up points.
Even in loses PowerOfEvil ($6,400 DK, $8,400 FD) still manages to look good. PowerOfEvil’s mastery of control mages has put him right at the top of LCS mid laners in 2021. PowerOfEvil will be up against last minute substitution ry0ma from 100 Thieves on Saturday. Ry0ma is viewed as a better control mage player than Damonte and was most likely the reasoning for the substitution. Control mage versus control mages matchups is widely considered as a skill check which heavily favors PowerOfEvil, the control mage master.
Deftly ($8,000 DK, $10,200 FD) has taken the TSM Lost approach, pick Kai’sa and win. Deftly is 6-1 on Kai’sa this season, winning his last four games on the champion. As Kai’sa is one of the top championd in the meta, whenever the top AD carries in the LCS can get their hands on in it results in wins. While Kai’sa has a 55.6% win rate across 45 games in the LCS, the players who play Kai’sa the most (Defly, Lost, Zven, Tactical, Raes) have a 66.7% win rate or better on the champion. Meaning Kai’sa is finding greater success on more skilled players and is lower priority among weaker teams.
Dignitas ($5,800 DK, $8,000 FD) pulled a miracle out of a bag against TSM. If you turned off the nameplates you would have thought TSM was Dignitas as DIG won through dragon control and fantastic teamfighting in the late game. TSM was unable to pull the trigger on many of the dragon fights allowing Dignitas to remain in the game by stacking mountain drakes and acquiring the soul. Dignitas are up against Golden Guardians on Saturday which should be a similar affair to GG’s performance against Team Liquid.
DraftKings Lineup for March 6
|MVP||Dardoch||$10,800 [MVP] DK|
|Top Lane||Finn||$5,600 DK|
|Mid Lane||Soligo||$7,600 DK|
|AD Carry||Deftly||$8,000 DK|
|Remaining Salary||$0 DK|
The term, “coinflip” has often been associated with Dardoch ($10,800 [MVP] DK, $8,500 FD) meaning there’s about a 50/50 chance that Dardoch will have a good game. “Coinflip” players are looked at as wildcards that can change the game for the better or worse and usually don’t have the best results in competitive play. However, Dardoch has transformed his gameplay from 2020 becoming much more consistent and team oriented. He added another unique champion to his growing list of 13 in Gragas against TSM. Dardoch has a ton of potential as an MVP selection as he’s shown a plethora of carry champions in his arsenal and could even bring out another. Soligo ($7,600 DK, $9,400 FD) has been the perfect counter to Dardoch’s newfound playstyle. Soligo plays a very supportive role for Dardoch and his team allowing the other players on Dignitas to shine.
