Poppy is a late game assassin with no early game. Poppy's early game is so bad it makes Akali's early game look op. She gets crushed in lane by pretty much everyone and crushed in the jungle by anyone viable. If you make it to late game you can 100-0 any carry and chunk tanks, but the problem is you're still going to facetank crowd control. You've also got the problem of zhonyas hourglass being built against you which makes you totally useless. The current meta with Lulu, Kayle and Soraka being popular picks also hurts Poppy's viability since they can make a single target really hard to blow up.

There are safer assassin picks with stronger early-mid game and comparable late game (Zed, Lb, Syndra if you call her an assassin)

Um, maybe because in ARAM you suck at the champ you play and the enemy suck at the champ they play, or they straight up don't try hard at all. ARAM means literally nothing--even blind pick in SR is much, much more serious. In ranked, people hold on to your ONE weakness and fking squeeze your balls till they crack. They don't try that hard in ARAMs. If the 5 enemies all used their main champs with LP on the line, I doubt u can do that good.
