Pitchers
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal.
SP Mike Wright NCD S. Jang $8,900
Riding the wave with the first place team in the KBO running out another import on Sunday. Wright's recorded a 1.69 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP through his first 16 innings. He needs to limit free passes to reduce traffic on the bases. As a blank favorite, Wright makes for a strong cash game option with some GPP upside if he can turn up the strikeouts against Hanwha. NC Dinos enters Sunday as the biggest favorite on the board at -250 with the lowest run total as well (nine runs) with each other game projected for a total in double digits.
SP Won Tae Choi KIW J. Seo $9,500
Lotte's lost five of their last six scoring 16 runs in them (2.67 average) and faces uphill odds against Kiwoom. Choi sports a 4.80 ERA but his 3.28 FIP hints at positive migration to the mean. Due to his price, Choi makes for a rough target in GPP's but he could be in line for the win bonus (Kiwoom's a -190 favorite) which will be dicey to mine on this slate.
SP Chang Gyu Lim LG W. Cuevas $7,200
This lines up to be a potential pitcher's duel so targeting Lim and his 13:1 K:BB over his first 12 innings could pay off on Sunday. Lim's 3.75 ERA accommpanies a 2.85 FIP adn 1.08 WHIP. He's only yielded one home run this season and at this price point represents a solid play with some upside. Hopefully he pitches to his 2.85 FIP not the 10.5 over/under for this contest.
SP William Cuevas KTW C. Lim $7,800
On the other side of this match-up, Cuevas also looks enticing if getting beyond his 5.71 ERA. Beneath the bloated ERA, Cuevas boasts a tidy 16:3 K:BB through 17.1 innings wiht a 4.72 FIP and 1.04 WHIP. He's suffered from some bad luck with a 59.4 percent strand rate despite a .234 batting average against. A GPP flyer at a lower price than the chalk above. Tread lightly on Cuevas but there's a glimmer of tournament hope.
SP Min Woo Lee KIA R. Pinto $7,000
Another tournament play, Lee's Kia Tigers opened as a -177 favorite on the road. Lee's recorded 13 strikeouts against seven walks through his first 16.2 innings but his WHIP (1.44) comes as a warning. Those gambling on Lee will focus on his 3.38 FIP, well over a run below his ERA and his bad luck with a 62.5 strand rate this season.
         
Hitters
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal.
C Dong Won Park KIW J. Seo (R) $4,200
Park carries a .346/.382/.673 slash into Sunday's contest. He's launched four home runs and five doubles making half of his hits (18) result in extra-bases. If Park's in the lineup, he makes for a terrific target at catcher on Sunday.
C Min Ho Kang SAM Y. Lee (R) $3,500
Kang's homered in two of his last three starts and if he plays on Sunday could provide salary relief in DFS builds. Kang's facing a Doosan pitcher with a 1.76 WHIP and .279 batting average against in 2020. Add in Samsung's park being a launching pad (seven home runs on Saturday) and this game could easily hit the over.
C Tae Goon Kim NCD S. Jang (R) $2,000
Looking for a minimum salary stat stuffer? Eui Ji Yang left Saturday's game early after straining his neck on a tag play at the plate. It makes sense for the Dinos to give their star a day off plus Monday for extra rest. If Kim gets the start, he's only logged 13 plate appearances this year but owns a .333 batting average with a 1.017 OPS.
1B/2B Jose Miguel Fernandez DOO D. Buchanon (R) $6,000
Just another multiple hit game for Fernandez on Saturday (11th time in 16 contests) going 4-for-5 with his fourth home run. Samsung's trotting out Buchanon (7.50 ERA) with a tired bullpen working 14.2 of 18 inings so far in this series. Although Fernandez will be chalk, his .500/.532/.779 slash cannot be ignored.
1B/2B Joo Hwan Choi DOO D. Buchanon $2,300
Looking for a cheaper alternative and still get a part of the torrid Doosan offense, Choi blasted his fourth home run on Saturday among his two hits and provides much needed salary relief with upside on this slate.
1B Byung Ho Park KIW J. Seo (R) $5,100
Chasing yesterday's numbers never makes sense in DFS. However, Park could be on the precipice of a heater crushing two home runs in a lopsided win for the surging Heroes offense. With only four home runs this year, keep in mind Park led the KBO with 33 last season using a de-juiced baseball. He's facing a pitcher allowing a .323 batting average against and already served up four home runs over his first 15 innings this year. Yahtzee.
1B/2B Keon Chang Seo KIW J. Seo (R) $2,300
Once again, if trying to save money Seo makes sense hitting atop the Kiwoom batting order riding a 12 game hit streak raising his average to .308 on the year. Seo's with two home runs and four stolen bases through his first 17 games.
2B Min Woo Park NCD S. Jang (R) $4,400
Riding an eight-game hit streak, Park racked up two more hits on Saturday along with stealing his second base. Park nursed a leg injury earlier in the week so perhaps the steal signals a return to health. Ranking third in the KBO in hits, Park's slashing a 379/.438/.530 through 73 plate appearances.
2B Jae Won Oh DOO D. Buchanon (R) $2,100
Talk about a bargain, Oh went yabbo on Saturday hitting a grand slam. He's cranked out three home runs this year, gone five for his last 12 (.417) with four runs, a double, a home run, six RBI and two walks his last three contests.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal.
SS Ha Seong Kim KIW J. Seo (R) $5,100
Disregard the price, Kim's on fire and worthy of use in all formats. Over his last five starts, Kim's 11-for-19 (.579) with 10 runs, four doubles, two home runs, eight RBI and a stolen base. He's yet to record a combo meal (HR/SB) in the same game in 2020 but Sunday could provide his first. Hitting second in the Kiwoom lineup, Kim should provide dividends upon investment.
SS Jae Ho Kim DOO D. Buchanon (R) $2,500
Kim received Saturday off, so to quote James Grande from yesterday: Kim's slashing .400/.468/.473 riding a 14-game hit streak with seven of them resulting in multiple hit contests. He has a little pop and a little speed so if needing salary relief, Kim makes for an intriguing zig off the beaten path.
3B Kyoung Min Hur DOO D. Buchanon (R) $2,700
Hur's not much on power, but hitting .302 and batted fifth on Saturday. With this game being the highest total on the slate, getting cheap pieces in stacks or mini-stacks makes sense.
2B/3B Jin Hyuk No NCD S. Jang (R) $3,200
A hot and cold player, No could be a sneaky play in a Dinos mini-stack. Currently hitting .298/.375/.439 slash with two home runs and 10 RBI.
OF Jung Hoo Lee KIW J. Seo (R) $4,500
Lee launched his fourth home run and finished with four RBI on Saturday. Facing another favorable match-up on Sunday, Lee brings his robust .381/.446/.714 slash into Lotte versus a pitcher yielding four home runs over his first 15 innings along with a .323 batting average against.
OF Sung Bum Na NCD M. Kim (R) $4,800
Na has been extremely unlucky this year, yet has four bombs and a .835 OPS. The 27% K-rate is concerning, but Na is too good and has too much pop to continue to struggle at the dish. Expect big things in this match-up.
OF Mel Rojas Jr. KTW C. Lim (R) $6,100
Homered from each side of the plate on Saturday in consecutive at-bats. Rojas Jr. ranks second in the KBO in average (.455), OBP (.493) and hits (30). Pretty, pretty good even if LG sends a very good arm to the mound.
OF Dong Yeop Kim SAM Y. Lee (R) $2,900
Trying to outline players in every price point, Kim hit two home runs on Saturday and faces a Doosan pitcher with a 4.72 FIP and 1.76 WHIP on Saturday. Doosan may win, but the Lions will score runs. Why not target their cleanup bat due for more positive migration to the mean.
OF/1B Jae Hwan Kim DOO D. Buchanon (R) $5,600
Possibly the only hitter without a hit on Saturday for Doosan without a dinger, or at least it feels that way. Kim enters Sunday with a .400 average and .933 OPS while batting fourth in a potent lineup poised to score more runs in bunches on Sunday.

Stacks

 

Team Stacks
1 DOO Bears   Opp. Pitcher D. Buchanon
Stack Jose Fernandez Kun Woo Park Jae Ho Kim Jae Hwan Kim Jae Won Oh
It's hard to ignore an 12 game total especially when 16 runs crossed the plate on Saturday between Doosan and Samsung. It's also hard to ignore the -210 favorites Doosan is. Everything is pointing to a big night considering Samsung's bullpen has been taxed the two previous games logging 14.1 of the 18 innings in them. Buchanon allowed 10 earned runs and three home runs his last outing. He could be asked to wear one in this contest with the two teams combinining for seven home runs on Saturday.
2 KIW Heroes   Opp. Pitcher Jun Won Seo
Stack Keon Chang Seo Ha Seong Kim Jung Hoo Lee Byung Ho Park Dong Won Park
Ranking as the second highest total on the slate (11 runs), Kiwoom's offense seems primed to repeat its 12 runs from Saturday. Seo's allowing a .323 batting average against and already served up four home runs through his first 15 innings with a 7.20 ERA, 7.55 FIP and 1.73 WHIP. Traffic equals runs and targeting Heroes on Sunday makes perfect sense. Both Park's and Lee all could leave the yard in this one.
3 NCD Dinos   Opp. Pitcher Shi Hwan Jang
Stack Min Woo Park Suk Min Park Sung Bum Na Jin Hyuk No Jin Sung Kang
Without knowing if Eui Ji Yang will catch until lineups post around midnight EST, key on the players who usually populate the lineup for the 13-3 Dinos. Hanwha's sending Shi Hwan Jang and his 7.20 ERA with a 2.33 WHIP to the mound. So far in 2020, Jang's yielded a .364 batting average against with eight of the 24 hits he's allowed resulting in extra-bases (six doubles, a triple, one home run).
