KBO DFS - Tuesday, May 12th


New series begin today

Top games for offense:

  • Doosan Bears at Lotte Giants O/U is 10, so expect some chalk here. Good ballpark historically for offense Giants lead the league in home runs with 9 so far and have scored 36 runs in 5 games. Bears not too far behind with 32 runs through 5 games.
  • KT Wiz at NC Dinos KT Wiz carry the highest ISO in the league at 0.222 as a team Both teams slugging near .500 on the season Both Pitchers (Despaigne, Rucinski) are 'known' quantities, likely chalky options today. Good second tier leverage game.

Other Games:

  • Kia Tigers at Hanwha Eagles
  • SK Wyverns at LG Twins
  • Samsung Lions at Kiwoom Heroes


Eric Jokish ($8700 - Kiwoom Heroes)

Heavy home favorite today against the paltry Samsung Lions.

Woo-Chan Cha ($7700 - LG Twins)

Lefty arm who should avoid the long ball today and still get some decent strike-out upside vs the Wyverns. Cha is at home in a nice pitchers park and SK has a relatively decent K% for opposing P's thus far.

Aaron Brooks ($7500 - Kia Tigers)

Had a pretty good start by his standards last week, walking no batters and striking out 5 over 5 2/3 IP against Kiwoom. Today he faces the Eagles who have a league low 0.101 ISO thus far despite having one of the better hitters in Preston Tucker on their side. Overall it's a spot Brooks should be able to go deep against tonight and not give up too much damage at home.


Doosan Bears

Jose Miguel Fernandez is the cornerstone premium hitter in this stack, which likely will have five straight lefties in it against Raul Aclantara tonight. Alcantara is just bad all around so I'd attack him with as many Bears as possible. This is a great hitters park, a high total and the Bears lock in that 9th inning road AB no matter what.

Lotte Giants

Other side of the chalk game today. We have to like Byung-Hun Min (OF), Dixon Machado (2B/SS) and a nice value play in Hoon Jung at $2700 (2B) who has really started the season off nicely and benefits when hitting in front of Dixon Machado. Words I never thought I would utter.

NC Dinos

Attack Despaigne. NC Dinos are off to a 4-1 start led by Jin-huk No and Sang-bum Na. The Dinos in their two home games over the weekend dropped 21 total runs and they seem poised to do that again against the traveling Despaigne.


Sang-bum Na (OF, $3600) - NC Dinos


Eui Ji Yang the star catcher for the NC Dinos is banged up and likely could sit out today. Avoid him in an NC Dino stack.
