My name is James Swindell and I will be continuing to bring you LEC DFS content here on RotoBaller. Friday was another excellent slate for the LEC and there are plenty of more matches to get excited about on Saturday.

As our LEC competitors make the final push for playoff spots, the matches will only grow in intensity.

This slate is one that you definitely that both DFS players and LoL fans will not want to miss.
