ANOTHER day. Another slate with potential weather issues. We have three games with potential PPD risk due to rain. Make sure to check back a little before roster lock if any games have been PPD or delayed.

 

Pitchers
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
SP Eric Jokisch KIW O. Despaigne (R) $9,700 20.69
Talk about pure and utter dominance. Jokisch is fresh off eight scoreless innings against the KIA Tigers in which he allowed one hit and one walk. So two opponents reached in that one. He also threw seven three-hit innings allowing one run the start before, so he’s really locked in. His ERA is down to a robust 1.42 and his WHIP? A casual 0.85. Jokisch has already shut down KTW this year allowing one run over seven innings while striking out nine. Although he’s on the road, he’s still favored to win here at -166.
SP Raul Alcantara DOO B. Kim (L) $8,600 17.21
We’ve seen Alcantara turn into a workhorse lately as he’s gone 6+ innings in four straight appearances which have resulted in four straight quality starts. He’s had 5+ K’s in 3-of-4 and has put up 16+ DK points in four straight. The Hanwha offense is the worst in the league and they have lost four games in a row. Doosan are the biggest favorites on the slate at -335. Alcantara is one of the better cash plays of the slate.
SP Adrian Sampson LOT R. Pinto (R) $8,400 8.2
Sampson followed up his best start of the year with a very pedestrian outing but he gets an anemic SK offense in this one to bounce back against! Sampson has flashed seven strikeout upside and his ability to shut down offenses before. This game comes with risk, not only because of Sampson’s inconsistencies, but because there is a chance it gets rained out. We’ll have to monitor this one up to roster lock. This game only has a 9 O/U and Sampson is a -165 favorite in Vegas.
SP Jung Hyun Baek SAM T. Wilson (R) $6,000 12.53
After a rough start to the year, the southpaw for Samsung has really turned it on lately allowing just three earned runs over his last four starts. Not only that, but he’s flashing upside notching 11 K’s over his last two games while winning 3-of-4 starts. His team is rolling too, winning 8-of-10 games moving them to three games over .500 for the year. Samsung is home which bodes well for Baek. Great value and this is one of the games with limited rain exposure.
Hitters
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
C Kang Nam Yoo LG J. Baek (L) $4,600 6.33
As much as I like Baek as a value arm, I’m not naive to think LG can’t go off in this spot. He gets hit hard against right-handed hitters and Yoo lead LG in runs batted in during the month of June with 18. His .766 OPS and 31 RBI from the catchers spot is amongst the league lead at the position.
C Dong Won Park KIW O. Despaigne (R) $5,400 7.98
Park is struggling at the plate, but let's not ignore his .292/.369/.545 slash with nine homers and 33 RBI from the catcher's position. Park has done most of his damage against RHP batting .317 with five-of-nine bombs. Odrismaer Despaigne has allowed four-of-six homers to righty swingers.
1B/OF Ja Wook Koo SAM T. Wilson (R) $4,800 10.03
Koo is riding a five-game hitting streak and has 14+ DK points in four straight. Koo has two homers over his last four and has SB upside as well, so he can do it all. He has multi-position eligibility and Tyler Wilson struggles vs. LHH allowing them to hit .304.
1B/2B Keon Chang Seo KIW O. Despaigne (R) $4,400 8.81
Another three hit day for Seo who’s now batting .368 over his last 10 games. We’ve documented it a lot how he’s a unique speed/power combination, but it needs to be something we say every time he makes the playbook. He has 15 XBH and 11 SB. He’s on pace for a MONSTER year and it flys under the radar because of some elite hitting teammates.
2B/SS Dixon Machado LOT R. Pinto (R) $4,500 7.62
I don’t love the price tag all that much, but I love the multi-position eligibility at positions that don’t have deep player pools. He’s also been hitting very well batting .321 over his last 10 games while showing off some speed to boot. Machado is a multiple category stat sheet stuffer.
SS Sun Bin Kim KIA S. Choi (L) $4,400 7.44
This play really is NOT exciting by any stretch. He doesn’t hit for any power and doesn’t steal a lot of bags, but Kim can just hit. He has back-to-back three-hit games and is up to .354 on the year in terms of average. He has the split advantage here as well.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
SS Ha Seong Kim KIW O. Despaigne $5,200 10.29
After a short IL stint, Kim has come back with vengeance going 4-for-8 with five RBI in his first two games back. He’s an elite talent with a lethal combination of speed and power that can play with anybody in the league. He’s one of the better DFS contributors in the league on a regular basis.
3B Won Seok Lee SAM T. Wilson (R) $4,000 7.65
Third base is so scarce and Lee is really rollin’ right now, hitting .355 over his last 10 games. He has a five-game hitting streak and has driven in runs in three straight too. He’s driven in 30-of-36 of his runs against RHP.
3B Kyoung Min Hur DOO B. Kim (L) $3,300 8.41
Another day, another weak 3B player pool, another day with Hur making my playbook. Hur has an excellent .320/.365/.464 slash and has dual threat ability. He’s so viable because he’s hitting well but mainly because his price tag is so user friendly.
OF Kun Woo Park DOO B. Kim (L) $4,200 8
We want the right-handed bats against the left-handed throwing Kim and Park has been dynamite over the last month. He was barely hitting over .200 at the beginning of June and is well over .300 (.318) and has an OPS of .842. He has five multi-hit games over his last nine and is hitting .313 vs. LHP.
OF Aaron Altherr NCD D. Gagnon (R) $5,900 10.29
I mean, I prefer lefties against Gagnon but Altherr is on FIRE right now. He’s hit five home runs over his last eight games and has three stolen bases over his last 10. Altherr now has 14 HR and 9 SB this season and is a smidge below a 1.000 OPS at .994 as well. Nobody can stop Altherr right now.
OF Hae Min Park SAM T. Wilson (R) $3,000 6.85
Like I mentioned earlier, Tyler Wilson struggles with left-handed hitters. They’ve hit .304 against him on the year. Park as three multi-hit games over his last four and is hitting .371 over his last 10. He has four homers and six stolen bases to boot, so he can do a little of everything.
OF Eun Sung Chae LG J. Baek (L) $3,200 8.17
We saw Chae really come into his own in the power department two seasons ago before the ball was altered, but even last year he still belted 12 HR with a dead ball. He’s hit five this season and has been a very respectable hitter at the dish posting a .293 AVG and has a .791 OPS. He hits lefties well batting .290 against them.
Team Stacks
1 KIW Hereos   Opp. Pitcher
Odrisamer Despaigne
Mini-Stack Dong Won Park Keon Chang Seo Ha Seong Kim    
I don’t love any full stacks on this slate, but I like Kiwoom as a sneaky mini-stack. Odrisamer Despaigne has allowed 4+ in 4-of-5 starts and Kiwoom is a top-four offense in most meaningly offensive categories. This is one of the few games without rain expected and KIW is -177 favorites.
2 SAM Lions   Opp. Pitcher Tyler WIlson
Mini-Stack Ja Wook Koo Won Seok Lee Hae Min Park    
Although LG is throwing out Tyler Wilson, that isn’t as good as it sounds. Wilson really struggles against left-handed hitters and Samsung has a couple of good ones. The 9.5 O/U in this contest is the second-highest of the slate and SAM comes into this game hot, winners of three straight and 8-of-10.
3 DOO Bears   Opp. Pitcher Bum Soo Kim
Mini-Stack Kun Woo Park Kyoung Min Hur Jose Fernandez    
Yup. Another mini-stack. This game features the only double-digit implied runs total (10) and DOO has a good match-up against the southpaw. Bum Soo Kim has control issues walking 6.5 opponents per nine innings. His 4.34 ERA is also almost a run and a half lower than his FIP (5.73 FIP). Doosan has some potent right-handed hitters throughout their lineup that can give Kim problems.
