League of Legends Tier List: The Best Top Laners On Patch 11.7

Buffs to the forgotten Yorick and Teemo, along with Yasuo and Mordekaiser highlighted Patch 11.7. The big nerfs to Turbo Chemtank also helped to shake up the latest League of Legends tier list for top laners.

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in League of Legends Patch 11.7. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each champion that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. As always, you can find the link to all the underlying data here.
