Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
SP Warwick Saupold HAN M. Lee (R) $8,500 14.6
Going against the stream in this match-up with Saupold's Eagles a -165 underdog in Kia. However, over his last three starts, Saupold's recorded a 1.96 ERA with 17 strikeouts versus one walk in 18.1 innings. He may not get the win due to a sporadic offense, but if he gets support a quality start bonus and an under the radar win could ensue.
SP Dan Straily LOT J. Lee (R) $10,000 20.22
Over the last month, Straily's challenged homegrown Chang-mo Koo for the best pitcher in the KBO honors. In June, Straily did not register a win or loss but surged to a 28:3 K:BB in 29.2 innings with a 2.12 ERA in them. Facing a tough Dinos lineup for the first time this year comes with challenges but Straily should accrue enough strikeouts and a quality start bonus on the road.
SP Casey Kelly LG Byung Jo (R) $9,200 11.06
For the underlying stats crowd, Kelly's FIP (4.39) sits below his ERA (5.12) but he's struggled putting hitters away this season. Points in his favor, LG's a -180 favorite at home and he's opposed by a pitcher with a 4.83 FIP with only 12-plus innings below his belt this year in the KBO. If Kelly can keep the Wiz left-handed power hitters at bay (Rojas Jr./Baek Ho Kang) he may record the win.
SP Jong Gi Park DOO Y. Jo (R) $7,300 17.75
For the GPP crowd, Park's Doosan offense should provide him with a chance to win. However, Park's only tossed 16 innings this season with an enticing 13:4 K:BB and 2.81 ERA. He could be due for some regression and allows RHH to bat .280 so far, but his 15.3 K-BB% and price allows for some upside when building lineups for Thursday.
SP Tae In Won SAM G. Lee (R) $7,700 12.4
Won enters this contest with his team a -180 favorite, but with some caveats. Won's a bit erratic with his command at times evidenced in his 15:12 K:BB in June over 28.2 innings. However, he pitches well at home with a 2-1 record and 2.35 ERA in five starts spanning 23 innings. There may not be much upside here but if he notches his fifth win, Won could be worth two times value in DFS.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
C Se Hyuk Park DOO Young Jo (R) $3,600 5.77
Not rocket science here, Doosan's in a game with a run total of 11, so getting a cheap piece of the action at a position of need nightly in DFS makes sense. If Park's in the lineup, he's a solid floor guy to record a hit, run or RBI in a potentially high scoring contest.
C Dong Won Park KIW J. Park (R) $5,400 7.98
If ging for power upside at catcher, Park could be the play armed with a .323 average against RHP with nine doubles and five home runs driving in 25 this year in 99 at-bats. Plus, Park allows RHH to bat .280 this year in limited exposure.
C Kang Nam Yoo LG B. Jo (R) $4,600 6.33
Steady producer Yoo cooled off at the end of June but his team's a heavy favorite. Yoo's hitting .291 this year with 31 RBI in 48 games playing a physically demanding position.
1B/2B Jose Fernandez DOO K. Jo (R) $6,000 10.82
Recorded a perfect Wednesday going 5-for-5 including his eighth home run of 2020 reclaming the top spot in the KBO in average (.396) and runs (43) in the process. Over his last 10, he's slashed a robust .425/.500/.625 with 11 runs and six walks.
1B/OF Jae Il Oh DOO K. Jo (R) $4,100 9.49
Racked up multiple hits in four of his last five games going 10-for-17 (.588) with two doubles, a home run and four RBI.
1B Dae Ho Lee LOT J. Lee (R) $3,800 8.94
Perhaps below the radar, Lee's gone 4-for-7 in two games against NC and over his last 11 at-bats produced three doubles and two home runs. Lee's never been a lights out arm and gives up extra-base hits to RHH.
Pos Player Team Opp. Pitcher DK Sal. DK FPPG
1B/2B Joo Hwan Choi DOO K. Jo (R) $3,300 8.44
Seeing a theme with Bears in the playbook yet? Choi owns positional eligibility and GPP upside batting fifth in the lineup. He's hit safely in nine of his last 10 games with a .333/.349/.381 slash with seven RBI. He's due for a dinger as well.
2B/SS Ji Hwan Oh LG B. Jo (R) $3,600 7.49
Riding a modest three-game hit streak, Oh tallied three hits on Wednesday, owns a .316 average his last 10 with five doubles in them plus can steal a base hitting second for LG.
2B/SS Ha Seong Kim KIW J. Park (R) $5,200 10.29
Back from the injured list, Kim went 3-for-5 in his return driving in two runs. Against RHP, Kim's batting .301 with seen home runs and may help keep Kiwoom in this game since Park struggles more with RHH early on than left-handed ones.
3B Kyoung Min Hur DOO K. Jo (R) $3,300 8
Registered multiple hits in five of his last seven contests going 10-for-26 (.385) with seven runs and five RBI in them. Doosan should score plenty and Hur at a low price should be involved.
OF Kun Woo Park DOO K. Jo (R) $5,900 8.76
If Park's leading off, his value increases while in the midst of a four-game hit streak with seven runs and five RBI in them. Over his last 10, Park's slashing .405/.463/.486 as well.
1B/OF Jae Hwan Kim DOO K. Jo (R) $5,600 9.81
Blasted three home runs driving in 12 his last 10 games with an alluring slash of .375/.545/.719 moving atop the KBO leader board in RBI (47) in the process.
OF Jeong Hyeop Heo KIW J. Park (R) $2,300 5.44
If needing salary relief, Heo's hit safely in six straight games going 8-for-20 with four runs, a double, a home run and driving in three for the Heroes.
OF Ah Seop Son LOT J. Lee (R) $3,600 9.08
On base maching Son gets the splits advantage against Lee (gives up a .313 average to LHH). Son should leadoff and carries a .410/.452/.641 slash over his last 10 games with hits in nine out of 10 games. Over his last two starts, Son's recorded multiple hits in each while driving in four along with a home run in them.
OF Hyun Soo Kim LG B. Jo (R) $5,300 8.96
Although Roberto Ramos could finally snap out of hs power funk in this match-up, Kim keeps compiling hits against RHP (.344) with four home runs and 20 RBI this year. A safe floor guy if looking to balance lineups.
OF Mel Rojas Jr. KTW C. Kelly (R) $6,000 12
So, Kelly's not been dominant this year so a two-man Wiz stack with Rojas Jr. and his teammate below may be underowned in Doosan stacks. However, Rojas Jr. has back-to-back three-hit games with a double in each. He's hitting .375/.457/.750 his last 10 and due for a dinger.
1B/OF Baek Ho Kang KTW C. Kelly (R) $5,200 11.56
See above, Kang's hitting .365 against RHP this year with nine home runs and 23 RBI through 85 at-bats. He's a double dong player waiting to happen and will be low owned on this slate.



Team Stacks
1 DOO Bears   Opp. Pitcher Young Gun Jo
Stack Kun Woo Park Jose Fernandez Jae Il Oh Jae Hwan Kim Joo Hwan Choi
Take your pick, one could use the top of the order, focus on the players on Doosan batters highlighted in the playbook or just fit them in throughout a lineup in DFS on Thursday due to the high run total (11) in this game and knowing they could get deep into the Kiwoom bullpen forcing a pitcher to wear it.
2 LG Twins   Opp. Pitcher Byung Wook Jo
Mini-Stack Ji Hwan Oh Hyun Soo Kim Roberto Ramos Eun Sung Chae  
Although the run total in this one sits at 9.5, LG comes in as a -190 favorite and facing a pitcher with a 1.42 WHIP and 4.83 FiP on KT yet to reach six innings in any start this year. KT's bullpen struggles so the Twins could exceed their implied run total in this one. Especially if Ramos launches a home run.
