League of Legends Championship Series: Week 8 Recap
Last week marked the close of the regular season for the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS). CLG emerged as the standout team with impressive performances, securing their spot in the playoffs. Let’s take a closer look at how the action unfolded and how it affected fantasy eSports players.
CLG dominated the competition on Saturday, winning against Flyquest and pulling off a major upset against Echo Fox. Their players claimed four out of the top five spots in fantasy scoring. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes delivered exceptional performances, racking up 97.53 points on day one and 85.78 points on day two. Vincent “Biofrost” Wang and Kim “Reignover” Ui Jin also showcased their skills, making them valuable fantasy picks.
Other notable performances came from Cloud9, who defeated Optic Gaming to secure fantasy points.
Predictions for Sunday
Sunday’s matches saw CLG continue their dominance, occupying five out of the top six spots in fantasy scoring. Many fantasy players overlooked CLG, leading to winners relying on picks from TSM and Flyquest. Jason “WildTurtle” Tran from Flyquest delivered a standout performance, accumulating 78.16 points at an affordable price.
However, our predictions for Echo Fox’s Fenix and Team Liquid’s Doublelift fell short, resulting in low scores for fantasy players.
Fantasy MVP and Best Value
Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes emerged as the fantasy MVP of the week, ranking at the top of the scoring charts. Despite his high cost, choosing Stixxay as the team captain proved to be a winning strategy. Meanwhile, William “Meteos” Hartman from 100 Thieves provided great value, showcasing his skills with 58.26 points on Saturday and 69.35 points on Sunday at an affordable salary.
Overall, last week’s LCS matches showcased the importance of strategic picks in daily fantasy eSports. Despite some unexpected results, fantasy players had the opportunity to earn significant points by making the right choices.
