Welcome back, RotoBallers, to my League of Legends DFS column! The League of Legends pre-season is upon us, and we here at Rotoballer have got you covered. We’re in for a slew of action with the KeSPA Cup kicking off in Korea on Monday simultaneously; the Demacia Cup gets underway in China. We will be getting our first look at some of these new rosters as the teams continue to prep for the 2021 season.
We’ll Have a format similar to the world’s group stage. If you don’t recall, the players that you roster will accumulate points for both games they play throughout the day. Instead of my regular match breakdown format, I’m going for a more general overview of Group A teams. I think this might be necessary to help us reacquaint ourselves with these teams.
Today, I’ll provide my League of Legends advice, analysis, and lineup picks for the KeSPA Cup 2020 slate on DraftKings that lock at 1:00 AM ET on Monday, December 21st, 2020. Make sure you follow me on Twitter @Mr_Malmanger as I often post starting lineups when I see them and other useful info for the slate.
Editor’s Note: Our new Premium eSports tools include DFS Cheat Sheets, a powerful Research Station, and the DFS Lineup Optimizer. Check them out!

They won the KeSPA Cup last year but were unable to continue that success into the regular season. In group A, they look to hold second place behind DWG in the initial rankings. Bang, while not quite as talented as Mystic, will benefit from a return to the LCK. Lehends coming over from HLE will give him a chance to start over as well. None of the other Bot lane duos in this group are overpowering, and they should be able to keep pace.
The rest of the map remains mostly unchanged, with Dread getting the starting spot in the jungle full time after Spirit retired. Kiin has regressed in the past few years but remains an average league player. Fly is not the particular player he once was, but he will be unlikely to lose games for the team. Afreeca remains a steady if an unspectacular team on paper stacks up as the second team in this group.
Afreeca shuffled coaches by promoting Rigby to head coach. Lira joined as an…
