1. Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme (Cloud9)
2. Vincent “Biofrost” Wang (TSM)

Man, Biofrost just does not get the level of praise he deserves. While everyone is lauding Vulcan and Ignar (deservedly so), Biofrost has quietly put up fantastic numbers despite playing with one of the less-productive ADCs in the LCS. He continues to be the best support in terms of vision control (2.81 vision score per minute) and one of the best in terms of kill participation (72%).

3. Lee “Ignar” Dong-geun (FlyQuest)
4. Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in (Team Liquid)
5. Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam (Evil Geniuses)
6. Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent (Immortals)
7. Choi “huhi” Jae-hyun (Golden Guardians)
8. William “Stunt” Chen (100 Thieves)
9. Andy “Smoothie” Ta (CLG)

The other half of the disappointing CLG bot lane, Smoothie is another player (though less-likely than Stixxay) that I could see the team walking away from. While Biofrost was the best player in the LCS when it comes to controlling vision, Smoothie is the worst with a 2.21 VSPM. Even Keith was better in terms of vision than Smoothie.

10. Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black (Dignitas)

After initially looking like a candidate for bounceback player of the split, Aphromoo has fallen back into his pattern of poor play. He has the worst damage per minute, adjusted and unadjusted, of any support in the LCS. Last weekend, he got completely outclassed by Zeyzal, going 0/5/5 on Nautilus.

11. Yuri “Keith” Jew (Golden Guardians)
