Gragas Matchups Overview
Gragas General information
Gragas is a strong early game Support. Try and look for aggressive plays whenever possible.
Throw your Ultimate R just behind the enemy to ensure they get knocked forward. Placing it on top of them may knock them in the wrong direction.
Staying off to the side while your team groups can allow you to flank the enemy and knock them into your teammates.
