Rakan usually has a significant smaller longest kill spree than his foe does. On average, Rakan takes a similar amount of damage to Jhin. This commonly reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the champion with increased HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further damage when engaged or poked.

Rakan usually totals many fewer minion kills than Jhin. Champs who on average don't get many minion kills usually do not require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale adequately off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with many minion kills, such as carries, usually need a lot of items to be effective. In either case, try to best the values presented here to do well.
