KBO DFS: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, advice, player pool for May 22
The 2020 KBO season has captured the attention of baseball fans around the world and daily Fantasy players have gotten in on the action thanks to KBO DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s being offered on FanDuel and DraftKings. The NC Dinos have been the league's best team at 12-2 after a nine-run rally in the ninth inning to beat the Doosan Bears on Thursday, and NC Dinos players have been popular options for KBO DFS stacks. Jin-sung Kang, Min-woo Park, Suk-min Park and Eui-ji Yang all have an OPS of at least .900 on the season.
Meanwhile, LG Twins first baseman Roberto Ramos, who previously played in the Rockies minor league system, has looked like an MVP candidate with a 1.407 OPS through 13 games. Ramos hit 62 home runs in his last two seasons in Colorado's system and he's a regular in KBO DFS lineups early in 2020. Before crafting your optimal KBO DFS strategy, be sure to check out the top KBO DFS picks, player pool and advice from SportsLine DFS millionaire Mike McClure.

McClure's top KBO DFS picks for May 22
One of McClure's top KBO DFS picks for Friday morning is outfielder Jae Hwan Kim of the Doosan Bears. The 31-year-old had a down year in 2019, with his OPS dropping by over 200 points from the previous three seasons to .804.
However, he's been back on the attack in 2020 with four homers, 15 RBI and a 1.034 OPS. And after a difficult series against the NC Dinos, Kim and the Bears get a solid matchup against Samsung Lions right-hander Ben Lively. The former Phillies and Royals pitcher has a 5.54 ERA through his first first three starts of the 2020 season.
McClure also likes NC Dinos outfielder Sung-bum Na as part of his KBO DFS strategy for Friday. The 30-year-old missed most of the 2019 season after suffering a gruesome leg injury on a slide into third base, but he's healthy this season and he's been hitting the ball with authority this week. Na has three multi-hit games in his last four contests and he's got four home runs and nine RBI already this year.
How to set your KBO DFS lineups for May 22
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Friday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
