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 8/21/17:
Garret: Kyle Seager has 4 homers since August 1st mixed with an underwhelming .206 average. I feel the need to pick on SunTrust Park again, and I like how Kyle’s approach at the dish plays out. For the month of August, he is hitting fly balls 52.6% of the time, and he is pulling 40% of the balls off of his bat at 45% Hard contact against RHP. Those numbers are a recipe for dongarita down in Atlanta. He gets Mike Foltyncxghwyz, who I don’t usually pick on because he has decent stuff, but I’m still predicting dongaritas for lefties!
Chris: Brian Dozier is putting it together lately. He’s hitting .344 over his last 15 games (20 for 58) with 5 HRs. He especially crushes lefties and he gets another one today in Carlos Rodon. Lifetime, Doz is 7 for 19 against Rodon with 3 HRs.
