KBO Daily Fantasy Baseball – Best Picks, Top Sleepers and Lineup Help For Friday, May 29

| May 28, 2020 10:45 am PDT
KBO DFS Advice 5/29

Thursday morning was very kind to my KBO DFS picks. Had Warwick Saupold been remotely good, we could have won all of the money.

That just goes to show there is still a lot to be gained from breaking down the top options early in the day. Scouring the player pool for some KBO DFS sleepers and loosely finalizing KBO DFS lineups also can be beneficial.

I also think there is incentive in both betting on KBO and at least paying mind to the way the games are priced at the top baseball betting sites.

Whether you bet on the games or not, though, you can lean on Friday’s KBO betting predictions to assist you.

With that, it’s onto Friday morning’s slate with a look at my favorite KBO DFS picks, sleepers and more.

KBO DFS Pitchers to Trust on 5/29

  • Drew Rucinski – NCD ($9.3k)
  • Eric Jokisch – KIW ($9k)
  • Aaron Brooks – KIA ($8.1k)

Unlike yesterday, this is a pretty good slate for pitching. Rucinski is another elite run prevention artist, as he owns a masterful 2.49 ERA and is 3-0 with 23 whiffs on the year.

The strikeout rate is good, he doesn’t give up much damage, he’s on a team that can help him win, and he doesn’t typically walk many batters. Facing a bad Samsung team doesn’t hurt, either.

Jokisch is even better in terms of run prevention, as he’s 3-0 with a sparkling 1.17 ERA. He won’t make as many bats miss, but the gap isn’t substantial. His price is better, but his matchup is significantly worse.

You can keep saving cash and drop down to Aaron Brooks, too. The Kia ace has been extremely reliable, averaging 16.8 fantasy points en route to a 3.28 ERA. He does give up quite a bit of contact and faces a solid Twins offense, but he’s a good value.

KBO DFS Bats to Roster on Friday

  • Eui Ji Yang, C, NCD ($5.4k)
  • Jae Hwan Kim, 1B, DOO ($5.5k)
  • Jose Fernandez, 2B, DOO ($6k)
  • Suk Min Park, 3B, NCD ($4.5k)
  • Ha Seong Kim, SS, KIW ($6.2k)
  • Sung Bum Na, OF, NCD ($4.9k)

Yang is finally starting to live up to his talent and price tag. He’s donged in each of his last two games and has one of the best matchups on the board. He’s a fine one-off, but I like him as part of a Dinos stack.

Doosan is one of the best KBO DFS stacks again. They honestly always seem to be due to their talent and production, but I never mind paying for their studs.

Hwan Kim is one of three viable 1B options they have at DraftKings, depending on how their lineup shakes out. You can also use Kim at OF, but his power and efficiency could give Kyung Eun Noh (major contact issues) fits.

The same can be said for Fernandez. He is slaying on the year and offers as much upside and safety as anyone in the KBO. I have no qualms paying $6k for him.

I really like NCD and I’ll be emphasizing lefties when it makes sense. It sure does at 3B, as Woo Park is hitting a cool .333 and has a solid matchup in front of him.

Seong Kim is super pricey, but I’ve spoken about him all season. He’s just so versatile and can return value in a number of ways. He’s facing a high contact pitcher, so I like his chances to rip off a multi-hit game.

Bum Na was a beautiful one-off pick yesterday and I love lefty Dinos bats (and a full stack) going into Friday morning. He’s on fire right now with 10+ fantasy points in five straight games, so I won’t be fading.

KBO DFS Value Plays to Target on 5/29

  • Min Woo Kim, SP, HAN ($6.9k)
  • Jin Sung Kang, C, NCD ($3.4k)
  • Roberto Ramos, 1B, LG ($3.7k)
  • Joo Hwan Choi, 2B, DOO ($2.2k)
  • Dae In Hwang, 3B, KIA ($3.5k)
  • Jin Hyuk No, SS, NCD ($3.5k)
  • Ji Wan Na, OF, KIA ($3.4k)

There are three arms with the name Kim on this slate, so be careful. Min Woo Kim is my preferred option and he’s so cheap given his production, upside and matchup.

Woo Kim does allow some hard contact, but he’s been rock solid and his flaws are less of a concern when you look at who he’s facing. SK is not an offense to be feared (second to last in home runs and dead last in batting average), so he’ll be the cheap arm I gravitate to.

I love NC for Friday, so if they keep rolling Sung Kang out there, you need to tap into that value. I’d certainly prefer him over his more pricey teammate if lineups lean that way.

I’m not going out of my way to roster Ramos or the Twins in a tough matchup. That said, Ramos has donged in three of the last four games and has gone deep nine times in 2020. He is a monster.

Hwan Choi is super cheap exposure to the Bears. I won’t force a Doosan stack, but getting cheap pieces to one of the best offenses in the league couldn’t hurt.

Hwang has slowed down and is facing a solid pitcher, but he does have the splits edge and comes in at a discount. He won’t be a priority, but I won’t ignore him, either.

Hyuk No is a wonderfully priced Dinos bat. Given his price, matchup and production, he’s one of my favorite plays of the entire slate.

I also like Wan Na, as Kia righties look appealing against Cha, who gives up a lot of contact and has gotten donged in every game in 2020. He’s too cheap given his upside in this spot.

Friday’s Best KBO DFS Lineup

  • SP: Drew Rucinski – NCD ($9.3k)
  • SP: Min Woo Kim – HAN ($6.9k)
  • C: Jin Sung Kang – NCD ($3.4k)
  • 1B: Jae Hwan Kim – DOO ($5.5k)
  • 2B: Keon Chang Seo – KIW ($3.8k)
  • 3B: Suk Min Park – NCD ($4.5k)
  • SS: Jin Hyuk No – NCD ($3.5K)
  • OF: Jung Hoo Lee – KIW ($5.4k)
  • OF: Sung Bum Na – NCD ($4.9k)
  • OF: Hee Dong Kwon – NCD ($2.6k)

I am very interested in pairing Rucinski and Jokisch due to the nice value on this slate, but I also have eyes for Woo Kim. I suggest a SK hedge stack somewhere just to be safe, but paying up and paying down at pitcher also makes sense.

The Dinos are my top KBO stack for Friday. I am sprinkling in two Kiwoom sticks and a pricey Doosan bat, but any combination of those stacks looks pretty appealing.

Hee Dong Kwon is the only “throw in” Dinos bat I have here. The rest I love, so if you’re not into him or a full NC stack, just pivot off of him. You should certainly mix and match if you’re rolling out several KBO DFS lineups, but this feels like a great starting point.
