This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional damage when engaged or poked.

In Graves vs Nidalee matchups, Graves commonly gets a bit more CS than Nidalee. Champs that don't earn a lot of minion kills normally do not require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale well off of their skills and stats alone. However, champions with tons of CS, such as ADCs, usually require a lot of gold to be effective.
