It’s a generous day slate on Wednesday, August 16, with 6 games playing in the afternoon. 9 games will make up the main slate.
Johnny G invites the MLB experts from Hammer DFS to take an early look at who they predict will go deep to help you fill out your rosters on DraftKings and FanDuel.
Up and down your squad, everyone needs home runs in their DFS lineups. From your high-priced stars hitting value with one swing to your low-owned, minimum-priced punt helping you take down a big dollar contest, we all dig the long ball. The experts will be digging through the match-ups and stats to find players in good spots and sharing them with you.
If you need more than a four-bagger to get your bankroll growing, Hammer DFS has a full-service chat to get you back on track. Check out a sample of what their members pulled in recently:
Here are Johnny G’s Home Run predictions for 8/16/17:
Garret: Ubaldo Jimenez is giving up 1.93 HR/9 and one of my favorite hitters of my generation faces him tomorrow in Robinson Cano. THERE IS NO SWEETER SWING in baseball! There aren’t many recent stats that would lead anyone to pick Robby Cano to hit a dong but do it and you won’t be disappointed
Chris: We already know that Giancarlo Stanton will go deep, so cross him off the list. My official pick is Zack Cozart. He’s 7 for 18 against Lackey with 2 doubles and 2 dongs. He’s had 5 hits in the four games he’s started during the current road trip, including 2 home runs and 4 home runs in his last 8 games. You’ll definitely want to consider him on FanDuel, since he carries a low-to-mid $3k salary and typically hits in the 2 hole.
