Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
SP Mike Wright NCD M. Lee (R) $9,700 14.43
Wright is a solid number three starter for NC. Is he worth 9.5K? Sometimes and others he doesn’t even come close to hitting value. He’s primarily a GPP play as he averaged 7.1 K/9 so nothing truly elite but very serviceable. He’s a favorite in Vegas and this game only has a 9.5 O/U, which plays into Wright’s hand.
SP Aaron Brooks KIA S. Lee (L) $9,000 19.44
It’s a tough spot for Brooks, but boy has he been lights out lately. He’s given up just two earned runs over his last three starts. He’s gone for 20+ DK points in 4-of-5 starts and in the one he failed to reach 20 he hit 18. This nine run O/U is the lowest on the slate despite two powerful offenses. He strikes out over 8 opponents per nine innings and his 2.83 FIP matches his elite 2.36 ERA as well. Brooks fits the cash game mold better than Wright.
SP Jong Hoon Park SK J. Kim (R) $8,300 13.87
It’s really hard to ignore all of the strikeouts Park is racking up. He’s notched two straight eight K games and has six or more in 8-of-10 games. He may have a 5.37 ERA, but he’s put up 15 FP in 8-of-10. Hanwha’s offense leaves a lot to be desired and is one we constantly like to pick on. Park and SK are big -155 favorites despite being on the road in this one.
SP Min Ho Lee LG M. Wright (R) $7,200 13.51
It’s a tough spot to trust anyone in considering NC is the league’s best offense, but it could be worth it in tournaments. Lee has a sparkling 1.62 ERA and since becoming a starter he’s allowed two or fewer runs in each outing. He has a bit of a control issue, but does have upside in the strikeout department notching 7+ in back-to-back starts in June. Not viable in cash, but he’s firmly in play in tournaments.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
C Se Hyuk Park DOO S. Park (R) $3,800 6.26
Park extended his hitting streak to nine games with a hit on Friday and is batting a robust .400 over his last 10 games overall. Park has taken his average all the way up to .298 and we get the split advantage against Se Woong Park.
C Sung Woo Jang KTW C. Choi (L) $3,000 5.87
Catcher is not the strongest position on the board for Saturday’s slate but Jang is rolling slashing .370/.438/.556 over his last 10 games. His average has crept up to .292 and OPS just below .800 at .779. It’s not the easiest match-up, but he does have the split advantage here.
1B Dae Ho Lee LOT H. Yoo (L) $4,100 8.72
Old faithful is in an ELITE spot here. He gets a pitcher who’s allowed 16 XBH to RHH and Lee himself has a strong .289 avg vs. LHP. Lee is slashing .310/.356/.571 over his last 10 games. 1B is really strong tonight, but how do you ignore this price tag in an 11.5 O/U?
1B Jae Il Oh DOO S. Park (R) $4,200 9.1
Oh homered on Friday extending his hitting streak to four while notching hits in 9-of-10. Oh has a great match-up in a game with a monstrous 12 O/U. His opponent has allowed a .321 AVG to LHH and Oh is casually hitting .348 on the year.
1B/2B Jose Fernandez DOO S. Park (R) $5,900 10.6
This is the match-up of the day. For both sides. Se Woong Park has allowed LHH to bat .321 and has given up five bombs to boot. Fernandez hasn’t let up at the plate at all and has flashed some power of late belting three bombs over his last 10 games. He has eight of his 10 home runs against RHP.
2B Hoon Jung LOT H. Yoo (L) $4,100 9.6
Although he only has 15 RBI this year, he missed a lot of time and only has 27 games played. He hits fifth in this potent Lotte offense with plenty of run producing opportunities. We also get the split advantage on Joon’s behalf in an 11.5 total.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
2B/3B Dong Hee Han LOT H. Yoo (L) $2,600 5
Hey! Some freakin’ 3B value! We don’t get that a lot in the KBO, so I’m excited. Get off my back. That said, Han has homered three times in two games and five times over his last seven. Han happens to hitting a cool .520 with three homers and six RBI vs. LHP. Probably using him in every lineup considering his 2.5K price tag.
3B Won Seok Lee SAM H. So (R) $3,600 7.61
Over his last 10 games, Lee has slashed .367/.447/.567 with two homers and 10 RBI. Seok has been an RBI machine against righties, notching 33 of his 40 against them. SAM has been very good on the road this season, notching an .893 OPS compared to .678 at home. Samsung is one of the better stacks on this slate.
3B/OF Tyler Saladino SAM H. So (R) $4,400 8.38
Saladino returned from the IL and went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in his first game since June 23, so he looks healthy. Saladino has had a really strong season at the dish with a .917 OPS and has contributed in both power (6) and speed (5) when healthy. His multi-position eligibility and match-up are bonuses as well.
3B/SS Jeong Choi SK J. Kim (R) $5,300 8
Long stint on the IL, huh? Two days to be exact. He returned to action and had a strong outing going 2-for-5 with a run, double and RBI. Choi is as explosive as they come offensively and has an OPS of .911 despite only a .267 AVG. Choi gets a pitcher who has thrown only 6.2 innings since 2018.
SS Ju Suk Ha HAN J. Park (R) $4,300 6.38
Ha didn’t let us down on Friday and we can go back to the well on Saturday. The position honestly sucks right now with all of the value struggling, but Ha hits third and has a ton of speed as he flashed on Friday stealing a bag. Strong mid-tier option.
OF Preston Tucker KIA S. Lee (L) $5,800 10.06
Do we care about the lefty/lefty match-up? Not really. He’s homered in three-of-four games giving him 14 on the year. His match-up with Seung Ho Lee -- who is a lefty -- is a good one considering he’s allowing LHH to bat .329.
OF Ji Wan Na KIA S. Lee (L) $3,600 7.38
Na is rollin’ a little bit homering in two straight games while driving in seven runs over his last three. Na has been one of the better run producers for KIA this year driving in 35 runs thus far. He’s been so good reaching base this season at a .374 OBP and has some pop with eight bombs.
OF Chang Jin Lee KIA S. Lee (L) $3,000 6.5
Na is rollin’ a little bit homering in two straight games while driving in seven runs over his last three. Na has been one of the better run producers for KIA this year driving in 35 runs thus far. He’s been so good reaching base this season at a .374 OBP and has some pop with eight bombs.
OF Hae Min Park SAM H. So (R) $2,600 7.38
Park had two more hits on Friday and is now slashing .341/.357/.537 over his last 10 games. He's doing a little of everything this year and with SAM offense clicking the way it is, now is the time to load up on them. Especially at this price point.
OF/1B Jae Hwan Kim DOO S. Park (R) $5,100 12
Kim has a lot going for him here, but the power is what stands out. He hit 34+ homers from 2016-'18 and 15 with a dead ball last season. He's already at 11 this year and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to see that number end at 12 or 13 after Saturday.
Team Stacks
1 DOO Bears   Opp. Pitcher Se Woong Park
Stack Jose Fernandez Jae Il Oh Jae Hwan Kim Kyoung Min Hur Se Hyuk Park
I mean let's start with the fact that this game has a slate-high 11.5 O/U and Doosan is a strong -152 favorite. Their match-up against Se Woong Park is a doozy as he has a 5.71 ERA and 1.46 ERA. He has also served up 10 bombs already this season and lefties especially dominate Park as they’re batting .321 against them this season.
2 LOT Giants   Opp. Pitcher Hui Kwan Yu
Mini-Stack Dae Ho Lee Hoon Jung Dong Hee Han    
I mean we love the full stack for Doosan, but how about coming back with Lotte Giants as well considering their match-up isn’t too shabby either. Hui Kwan Yu can not pitch on the road. He has a 7.08 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and allows his opponents to hit .344. Lotte has belted 14 HR over their last 10 games -- tied for the most in the league and Yu has allowed five bombs to RHH.
3 KIA Tigers   Opp. Pitcher Seung Ho Lee
Mini-Stack Preston Tucker Ji Wan Na Chang Jin Lee    
I think this KIA mini-stack will go under owned because of it’s low 8.5 O/U we’re looking at in Vegas. That said, Seung Ho Lee is exploitable, especially on the road. He’s allowed a .311 BAA and has a 5.68 road ERA. Lee also doesn’t miss bats with only 33 K’s across 54 innings, which bodes well for KIA. The righties should be the primary option, but don’t neglect LHH as Lee lets LHH bat .329.
