In KBO DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on FanDuel and DraftKings, finding value in the KBO DFS player pool can be a serious challenge because of a general lack of familiarity with the league’s players. NC Dinos left fielder Myung-gi Lee isn’t a household name stateside and his numbers don’t jump off the page because he doesn’t hit for much power. However, he’s got impressive bat-to-ball skills and some plate discipline that could be useful in your KBO DFS lineups.
Lee has recorded at least two hits in seven of his last eight games and he’s become an intriguing value play in KBO DFS lineups. But where else should you be looking to find value to afford some of the league’s big stars like Jin Sung Kang, Jose Miguel Fernandez and Roberto Ramos? Before locking in your KBO DFS picks for Thursday, be sure to check out the optimal KBO DFS strategy and advice from DFS millionaire Mike McClure.

McClure’s top KBO DFS picks for June 18
One of McClure’s top KBO DFS picks for Thursday morning is Doosan Bears first baseman Jose Miguel Fernandez. The 32-year-old is second in the KBO in batting average (.393) in his second season with Doosan and his 32 RBI are tied for fourth in the league. Fernandez is currently on a seven-game hitting streak entering Thursday and he’s hit a staggering .476 against Samsung so far this season.
McClure’s KBO DFS strategy also includes rostering Doosan Bears right fielder Kun Woo Park. The 29-year-old has hit at least .319 in each of his last five seasons in the KBO. Park started the 2020 season slowly, but he’s caught fire of late. Park is riding a streak of four consecutive multi-hit games with a pair of home runs and a pair of doubles during that span.
He’s had eight multi-hit games now dating back to May 31 and he’s reached base safely in all 13 games since that date. Park, Fernandez and the rest of the Doosan lineup will look to jump on Samsung Lions starter Yoon Dong Heo on Thursday. Heo got roughed up for eight hits and three earned runs over five innings in his last start against the LG Twins on June 3.
