The schedule is full on Tuesday, August 29th. An interesting divisional series starts, as the Dodgers travel to the D-Backs. Maybe the D-Backs can cut into that 19 game lead LA currently holds (just jokes…). It’s Godley vs. Hill, fresh off his no-hitter turned extra inning loss. Keep an eye on the Nationals roster to see what lineup faces Nicolino. Word is Turner & Harper are close to a return.
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 8/29/17:
Chris: A couple of things seem certain: Chris Flexen will not go deep, he’s going to allow baserunners, and he’s going to give up some runs. There are more well-known Reds to pick, but I like Scott Schebler‘s recent numbers. He has multiple hits in 2 of his last 3. Over his last 7 games, he’s averaging a batted ball distance of 226 feet, up 23 feet from his season average. His hard contact rate is 45% (up 9%). His exit velocity is 93 mph (up 3 mph). He hits lower in the order than I prefer, but he stays relatively cheap and I’m looking for a low-owned dong from him today.
If you want a similar stat profile (I could almost copy and paste from above), but want a hitter higher in the lineup, take a look at Kole Calhoun. He’s been moved to the cleanup spot and it’s paid dividends for his power numbers. He’s averaging 243 feet distance, 42% hard contact, and 94 mph EVO.
Who do you think will hit a home run today? Let us know in the comments!
