This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also hint that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to escape further damage when engaged or poked.

Lucian often takes many more minion kills than Rakan. Champions that do not acquire a lot of minion kills typically don't require much CS to be effective.
