DraftKings has another five-game KBO slate for Wednesday. We go over the top plays at each position below as we reach the middle of week three in the 2020 season below. You can set your lineup here.

Pitcher: Chang Mo Koo, NC Dinos ($10,000)

Koo has been flat-out ridiculous. He’s struck out 18 batters in two quality starts and hasn’t given up a single run. The Dinos ace has allowed six hits and only walked two batters this season. Flexen is the next best option, but it’s hard to go against a pitcher who hasn’t dipped below 31 DKFP this season.

Catcher: Jin Sung Kang, NC Dinos ($2,500)

Keep riding the Kang train. He wen’t 2-for-3 against the Doosan Bears Wednesday and is batting .500 with three home runs and nine RBIs. His 1.597 OPS is outrageous. While this production isn’t sustainable, Kang has a hot bat and has barely seen his price rise from $2,200.

First Base: Jae Il Oh, Doosan Bears ($4,300)

Oh has continued to get on base at an efficient rate. He’s dropped below 10 fantasy points once in his last nine games. Although he didn’t score Tuesday, he knocked in a run with a double and was walked twice. Steady production for this price is worth it. Consider a riskier play in Roberto Ramos ($3,100) as well though. He can give you plenty of value and is among the league leaders in home runs (5).

Second Base: Min Woo Park, NC Dinos ($4,100)

Park outplayed the more expensive options at second base Tuesday and has reached double-digits in fantasy points in four of his last five games. He tallied one hit in his last outing but was also walked twice. Park is already cheap, but an alternative option at second base is Joo Hwan Choi ($2,200), who is batting .303 with three home runs and eight RBIs.

Shortstop: Woo Jun Sim, KT Wiz ($2,800)

Sim is in the middle of a nice stretch and is averaging 15.25 fantasy points per game over the course of his last four appearances. He’s batting .303 with seven RBIs and is one of his teams better hitters so far this season.

Third Base: Dae In Hwang, Kia Tigers ($4,000)

Hwang has just begun to get involved with the Tigers and has looked impressive. The 24-year-old has four hits in five at-bats with a home run and two RBIs. He’s injected some energy into his team’s batting lineup and could continue to do so.

Outfield: Baek Ho Kang, KT Wiz ($5,800)

Kang is riding a hot streak and has tallied at least 20 DKFP in three straight games. He’s reached double-digits seven times in his last 10 games. He’s batting .367 with five home runs and 14 RBIs.

Outfield: Preston Tucker, Kia Tigers ($6,100)

Tucker didn’t hit a home run in his latest outing, but did extend his streak of double-digit fantasy point outings to five games. He went 2-for-4 Tuesday and scored two runs. Although his price has risen, his upside makes paying up worth it when he strikes gold.
