Pitchers
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
SP Drew Rucinski NCD H. Yang (L) $9,400 21.3
The best pitching match-up on the board in terms of pitchers is in this game and I prefer Rucinski to Yang. First off he’s favored at home at -180 and the O/U sits at a slate low 9 implied runs. Rucinski has been as solid as they come, notching eight straight quality starts and has put up 18+ DK points in 6-of-7. One of those starts came against tonight’s opponent, KIA, so he’s familiar with their lineup. A lineup he struck out eight times over six innings.
SP Chris Flexen DOO M. Kim (R) $8,400 16.6
Flexen is going to a popular SP2 on this slate given his match-up with the worst offense in the league residing in Hanwha. Flexen has back-to-back games of 7+ K’s and has a very strong 8.7 K/9 this season. Doosan are MASSIVE -420 favorites tonight and because of it we’re putting Flexen in our cash game pool.
SP Won Tae Choi LOT R. Pinto (R) $8,700 13.94
Choi is coming off a lights out performance against KIA his last time out allowing just one hit over seven scoreless innings while striking out six. Choi has now put up double-figure fantasy points in 6-of-7 starts including one against KTW earlier this season. Despite being on the road, Choi and Kiwoom are still favorites at -130. Probably wouldn’t use him in cash, but love deploying him in GPP’s.
SP Chan Gyu Lim LG Y. Heo (L) $8,200 17.84
I don’t love the value on this slate and Lim is probably as far down as I’m going to go. He’s coming off a fantastic performance against SK shutting them out across seven innings and has now notched quality outings three times in a row. Lim has elite swing-and-miss stuff as his 9.5 K/9 is one of the higher marks in the league amongst starting pitchers. Vegas likes him here and so do I. He has 30+ DK point upside.
Hitters
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
C Kang Nam Yoo LG Y. Heo (L) $4,600 6.33
So, Yoo dominates southpaws. He’s batting .500 on the year against LHP on the year and has hit 4-of-5 homers against them. He’s up to 34 RBI on the year already which is amongst the league leaders for catchers. If you’re not paying up for Eui Ji Yang, Yoo is the perfect mid-tier option.
C Eui Ji Yang NCD H. Yang (L) $5,900 9.05
Yang is riding a six-game hitting streak and has four RBI over his last two games. He’s batting .367 over his last 10 games and gets the southpaw in this match-up. Yang vs. Yang crime here and the catcher Yang is elite against a LHP that’s allowed four HR to RHH this year.
1B Jae Il Oh DOO M. Kim (R) $4,100 9.49
Everytime we look Oh’s average is climbing. It’s up to .372 thanks to a .417 AVG over his last 10 games. Oh’s price is still so cheap and has flashed his upside against RHP hitting four of his six bombs against them. Oh is one of the better cash plays at his price and match-up.
1B/OF Jae Hwan Kim DOO M. Kim (R) $5,600 9.81
Kim is another hot Doosan hitter batting .382 with an OPS of 1.199. He’s been their primary run producer and power hitter as he’s now up to 14 RBI over his last 10 games and 49 overall. We have the split advantage to boot. The multi-position eligibility is a plus too.
1B/OF Jamie Romak SK J. Seo (R) $4,700 7.96
Romak has homered twice over his last six games as the power slowly comes back. Romak has hit 29+ homers in all three seasons he’s completed in the KBO so there will be a run of power shortly and maybe that started on Friday. He’s hit 6-of-8 bombs against RHP this season.
1B/2B Jose Fernandez DOO M. Kim (R) $6,000 10.82
Although Kim is a strikeout artist, left-handed swingers do whatever they want. They’re batting .315 with five bombs already this year. Fernandez is slashing .444/.565/.667 over his last games, his lone problem is still the lack of the power he’s showing. He does, however, have eight bombs this season.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
2B Chi Hong An LOT J. Kim (R) $3,100 7.84
Second base is a dreadful position to get quality bats, so An makes our player pool here. An has been good against both righties and lefties, but has hit all three of his homers against RHP on the year. LOT hitters get to face off against a pitcher that has posted a 5.73 ERA on the year along with a 1.73 WHIP
3B jae Gyun Hwang KTW W. Choi (R) $4,600 9.08
I don’t love the match-up because I like the pitching on the other side of this, but Hwang has dominated lately. He’s slashed .395/.478/.737 with seven XBH (3 HR), 13 R, 11 RBI and a SB to boot. He’s riding a six game hitting streak and will look to make it seven in this spot.
3B/SS Jeong Choi SK J. Seo (R) $5,400 8.4
Choi has homered in two of his last three games and three times over his last 10. Choi has surpassed a .900 OPS on the year and has a hit in 5-of-6 games. This game has the second highest O/U at 10 implied runs and Choi will be hitting in the middle of the SK lineup.
SS Ji Hwan Oh LG Y. Heo (L) $3,600 8
This is by no means a sexy play, but Oh went deep on Friday and is showing he DOES have some pop in his bat. He does have an .866 OPS over his last 10 games and is up to .771 on the year. We’re really rostering him for his ability to steal bases as he’s up to nine on the year. We also get the split advantage here.
OF Ah Seop Son LOT J. Kim (R) $5,900 9.08
This guy has been really good for a really long time. He has failed to hit .300 just once since 2010 and the one year he didn't? A cool .295. Son is hitting .351 on the year and although he’s not flashing the power or speed he has in the past, he’s reached double-figures in both of those categories for seven consecutive seasons.
OF Eun Sung Chae LG Y. Heo (L) $3,200 8.17
Chae is only 3.1K on this slate and that’s too cheap for the upside in this match-up. Chae hit 37 homers from 2018-’19 and has deposited five this season already. He has some pop, is a very good run producer driving in 70+ in 3-of-4 seasons and is well on his way to that mark again this season.
OF Aaron Altherr NCD H. Yang (L) $5,000 10.29
Nobody can stop Altherr. NOBODY! He’s still only 5.1K! NOw he draws the southpaw! I’m still going to use ! over and over again! He has crushed lefties to the tune of a .368 AVG and seven bombs in only 38 at-bats. Pretty hard not to love Altherr here.
OF Hae Min Park SAM C. Lim (R) $3,000 6.85
Park had another two hit outing on Friday, giving him three straight, his fourth over his last five games and sixth over his last 10. Park has hit .368 with a .915 over those 10 games. He’s really cheap, has the split advantage and has a decent power (4 HR) and speed (6 SB) combination going. If looking for value in GPP’s.
Team Stacks
1 DOO Bears   Opp. Pitcher Min Woo Kim
Stack Jose Fernandez Jae Il Oh Jae Hwan Kim Se Hyuk Park Jae Won Oh
Stacking the left-handed hitters against Min Woo Kim here could be very beneficial to us in this spot. Kim has let left-handers hit .315 while belting five bombs already this season. This game has a solid 9.5 run O/U with Doosan coming in as -420 favorites. Doosan has averaged 6.3 runs per game over their last 10. The offense is rolling and is in a great spot to put up a crooked number.
2 LG Twins   Opp. Pitcher Yoon Doon Heo
Stack Kang Nam Yoo Ji Hwan Oh Eun Sung Chae Roberto Ramos Hyun Soo Kim
We have found the game with the largest O/U as it sits at 10.5 with LG -155 favorites despite being on the road. I prefer the righties here as they're hitting .306 and have deposited two bombs in just 15 at-bats against Yoon Dong Heo. That said LG has two ELITE LHH that could round out your stack for the evening.
