With DraftKings running a $175,000 Titan's Fury with $50,000 going to the winner, the optimal League of Legends DFS strategy on Thursday morning could pay off in a big way. But with so many people turning to eSports DFS while the rest of the sports calendar is on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, setting profitable LOL DFS lineups could be a challenge. There are six games on Thursday morning, including Vici Gaming vs. LGD Gaming, Gen.G vs. Damwon Gaming and T1 vs. APK Prince.
T1 and Gen.G are both sizable favorites, while Vici Gaming is a slight favorite. That could make top players like Gen.G's Ruler and T1's Gumayushi popular options in the LOL DFS player pool. Finding the right combination of League of Legends DFS stacks is key to winning big, so before finalizing any LOL DFS picks for Thursday, be sure to see the LOL DFS advice and cheat sheet from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

McClure's top League of Legends DFS picks for Thursday
For Thursday's split LPL/LCK action, one of McClure's top picks is Faker from T1. The 23-year-old South Korean player formerly known as GoJeonPa was the first player in LCK history to reach the 1,000 and 2,000 kill marks and he's made over $1.25 million in prize money during his professional career.
He's now a part owner of T1 and one of the team's most valuable assets as an eight-time LCK champion and three-time MVP. He's averaging 67.6 Fantasy points per game on DraftKings and has turned in at least 83 points in three of his last five matches.
McClure's optimal LOL DFS strategy for Thursday also includes banking on Life from Gen.G. Life is a 19-year-old South Korean player who has been with Gen.G since 2018 and had his contract extended through 2020 last November. He's had at least 16 assists in his last six matches and topped the 30-assist mark on March 4 and Feb. 21, putting up 94.3 DraftKings points for his performance in a 2-0 win over SANDBOX Gaming on March 4.
