The KBO Rundown- FanDuel KBO DFS Picks- May 19th, 2020 (5/19/20)

Welcome to the Daily Rundown for FanDuel for KBO DFS contests on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Pitcher to Target

Using mykbostats.com you can see the projected starters below for Tuesday’s games:

Looking over the pitching on this slate we have several solid options to chose from but two of the options jump out at me as better than the rest. The first of those options is Won Tae Choi ($25) of the Heroes. Choi has been solid in his two starts this season with ten strikeouts and only four runs allowed in his 12 and third innings. Now, Choi has not picked up a win in either of those starts and on FanDuel the win is crucial, but I like him to pick up his first win in this one as he takes on the Wyverns. The Wyverns have only won one game this season and rank dead last in runs scored per game at 3.09. The odds also favor Choi heavily as he is the second-largest favorite on the slate and the Wyverns have the lowest projected run total on the slate.

William Cuevas ($24) is the second pitcher that jumps out at me. Cuevas was awful in his first start of the season but looked excellent in his last start. In that start, he went six innings while allowing just one run and striking out four. I expect we see a similar start as that start as he takes on an Eagles team that has struggled to hit the ball. To start the season the Eagles are averaging the second-fewest runs in the KBO at 3.17 and have hit just four home runs which is the lowest in the league. Cuevas also looks to be a lock to pick on the win which once again is a must on FanDuel as the Wiz have the largest projected win percentage on the board on this slate at 62.6%.

If you are looking for a pitcher that is likely to fly way under that radar on this slate than Shi Hwan Jang ($23) might be the pitcher for you. Jang is in a horrible match-up against the Wiz and is a huge underdog in this one but he has been excellent in his first two starts. Jang has picked up a quality start in both of those starts and has 13 strikeouts while allowing just five earned runs in his 12 innings of action.

Stack to Target

The Giants have the highest projected run total on this slate at 5.51 and it is hard to argue with using them in this one as they take on Min Woo Lee. Lee has allowed seven runs on 13 hits with four walks in his 10 and two-thirds innings of action. The Giants also have a great offense. This season they have six players with an OPS over .900, three players with an ISO over .240, and are averaging six runs a game. Dixon Machado ($14) is my preferred hitter on the Giants. Machado despite hitting at the bottom of the order has been excellent with four home runs and 14 RBIs. Jun-Woo Jeon ($14) is another hitter to look at. Jeon also has hit four home runs this season while hitting .320. If running a three-man stack which I personally am doing Ah-Seop Sun ($13) would be who I finish my stack with. Sun has at least six fantasy points in every game this season and is slashing .405/.510/.541 with 11 runs scored.

If you don’t want to stack what should be a chalky Giants team and are looking for a stack that should be low owned look at the Bears. Yes, I said the Bears after being chalk the past lord knows how many slates should be low owned tonight as they take on Mike Wright. Wright is probably the best pitcher on this slate and is not someone I normally would stack against but the Bears have been that good. The Bears lead the KBO in runs scored per game and batting average while ranking second in home runs hit. As always if you are stacking the Bears you are going to want exposure to Jose Miguel Fernandez ($17). Fernandez is slashing a ridiculous .479/.519/.729 with an ISO of .250 this season and has at least nine fantasy points in all but three of his games. Jae-Hwan Kim ($17) and Jae-II Oh ($17) are also elite plays on this slate. The only issue I personally have with the Bears today is their salary as they are uber expensive as you can see by each of the three guys I highlighted being $17 in salary.
