Day Two of the playoffs are here and let’s get ready to play some more fantasy! Four teams have been eliminated on day one and if you are like me, then they are already dusted to try and upgrade our current cards. On Day Two, we have four best-of-three’s and that means we have a lot of options to pick for our squad. The teams to choose from are OG, Newbee, Team Secret, Evil Geniuses, Virtus pro, Royal Never Give Up, TNC, & Liquid
. Yes folks, a total of eight teams to choose from. Quite a difficult task to work around.
Let us take a look at each team and each player’s TI averages that are playing on day two of the playoffs.
Royal Never Give Up:
Ah Fu (15.6)
Mind Control (10.5)

MY PICKS FOR DAY 6!
The second day of playoffs is full of choices for us to go through and we are going to pick the best players we can in best-of-three match-ups we think will give us the most points. There are plenty of players available right now that have very high averages in match-ups where I think they will do more of the same.
For my cores, I am going for Gabbi & Yawar.
These are right now, hands down, the highest core point makers. For both these players I think they are going to be in long game series meaning there will be a lot of time to pick up points. TNC has been playing plenty of games over 40 minutes (today's games against VG went well over 60 minutes) and that will give ample time for their players to score some big points, while Newbee has done the same and played plenty of close match-ups with games lasting over 40 minutes. I think both these players will stay consistent in the points they pick up in their upcoming matches.
For mid, I am going with Sumail
who is first in average points in the mid player role! Sumail has been quite reliable for us when it comes to points with his high averages and he is always quite the play maker. I think again it comes down to a team that plays consistently well and a player that is consistently at the top in picking up points. So we will put our trust in Sumail once again and hope he gets us the most points out of our mid slot.
Finally for our support picks, I am going with Tims
(yet again) and Pieliedie
. Tims racked up 50 points on day one of the playoffs and I don’t think he will slow down anytime soon. He is a play maker and does it all, gets kills, places wards, and has long stun duration. He is a versatile player and gets us the points we need.
The last time we played Pieliedie, he was a ward placing machine getting 75 points for us on the day JUST FROM WARDS
. He always seems to get us towards the top in support picks and I believe he will keep it up against OG today.
So our lineup is as follows:
If you are looking for some alternatives I would suggest Puppey
Finally, all the best to everyone for tomorrow's fantasy games!
