At the top, three very aggressive picks in Jax, Riven, and Urgot, and three champions that are all consistently rated in the top or high tiers by all the sources we used. When adjusting this data for rankings by elo (which only a handful of our source tier lists do) we see that for low elo (gold and below) only Jax is considered to be in the top/S tier for top laners. If you’re looking to climb in the preseason as a top laner, Jax should be your priority pick or ban.

Below them, we have a very strong and diverse crew of champions making up the A tier with six divers, three juggernauts, two skirmishers, and one mage. We highlight Irelia here because of all the champions in the A tier she is the one with the highest deviation in terms of opinion – some rankings have her as very strong, but others rank her average or even below average – so she might not be the most stable pick now. On the other hand, Sion – the only tank in this tier – is the most stable pick in terms of deviation in rankings.

Speaking of tanks, you’ll notice that a lot of those tanks are situated towards the bottom of the rankings. Only three tanks were in the B tier or higher on this list (although Poppy was on the verge of making the cut), while the bottom two tiers contain five tanks. The average ranking for tanks as a class would be -0.548, which means the average tank is squarely in the C tier. Compare this to the juggernaut class, with an average ranking of -0.011, which is below average but still in the B tier. As a class, fighter/skirmishers are the strongest class in the top lane right now with the worst being Trynadmere who is still in the B tier.
