League of Legends – Fantasy LCS Preseason Rankings

Here we are folks, the fantasy LCS season is upon us, and with it comes a chance to dominate your friends and crush them like tiny paper cups on a weekly basis.

If you’re new to Fantasy LCS the basic premise is that you join or start a league, then hold a draft where everyone in the league takes turns at selecting people from the LCS rosters of players from the EU and US (this differs based on your geographical location). Then, each week you go head to head against another member of the league, set your line up from players currently on your team, and how they perform on The Rift correlates to fantasy points. The person with the most points in your head to head wins that weeks matchup, then ultimately the player with the most wins throughout the season wins the league. There’s a superb how to play guide from Riot located here.

The 2016 Spring Split is shaping up to be an exciting one with plenty of familiar faces on unfamiliar teams, some of whom have even crossed the Atlantic to join their new organisation. Below are my rankings based upon what we’ve seen from players over the last year; or for some of the more established veterans, their body of work overall, and is merely a prediction of how I believe they rank coming in to the season.

I’ll be posting weekly rankings prior to the games so I’d recommend checking the latest rankings prior to setting your lineup each week.

The older hands among us will notice some memorable names in the mix now with both Crumbzz and Alex Ich returning on Renegades as well as Froggen making a comeback playing for 3 time NBA champion Rick Fox’s new team; aptly named Team Fox. Also for some reason ZionSpartan renamed himself Darshan.

I know that some of you are screaming looking at the top lane rankings already asking how I can have Huni so low. Sadly, it’s all about reliability. When Huni’s good, he’s very good and will net you a literal ton of fantasy points; but when he’s bad, you’ll rue the day you drafted him. He’s a serious boom or bust player, but is almost guaranteed to go in the first couple of rounds of your draft, so if you want him, don’t wait for him in the later rounds as it just won’t happen.

You may also have spotted that Bunny FuFu is totally omitted from the Support rankings, that’s because right now both Bunny and Hai are listed as the support for Cloud 9. Until we know how the workload is going to be split between them it’s impossible to try and predict which one is going to have the better fantasy year. Once the season is under way and there’s clarity around the timeshare you can expect one of them to feature as a top play most weeks. My advice right now would be if you’re drafting a support, look elsewhere. Alternatively if you really are clamouring for the C9 support, handcuff them and draft both.
