Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (9/15)

Today will be my final Swing for the Fences article of the baseball season, as I focus all my energy (and time) on the NFL. It has been a good run this season with some highs and lows but...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (9/12)

Just one long ball on Friday’s list but there were four hitters that scored at least 12 FanDuel points so it wasn’t a total bust. For Tuesday’s 14-game night slate I feel like you must have either Corey Kluber...

Anybody paying attention to baseball anymore with the kick off the NFL season last night? If you are then here are my home run hitters for Friday night’s 15-game slate of MLB action. There are some big names at...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (9/5)

Not a good night on Friday with only one home run from my list of hitters. We’ll give it another go on Tuesday night’s full 15-game slate. Note that I will try to continue posting this article every Tuesday...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (9/1)

Tuesday’s lineup saw three of my picks not play. However, of the six that did two of them hit homers with Giancarlo Stanton (of course) and Scott Schebler (my boy) going deep. The Friday night slate consists of 13...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/29)

I posted my second straight three home run night last Friday with five of my nine selections scoring at least 18 FanDuel points. This brings my season total up to a 24% home run rate from my selections. Looking...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/25)

Welcome to the Friday edition of Swing for the Fences. No this is not a duplicate of Tuesday's lineup even with J.D. Martinez as the featured hitter again. Although I'd be okay with duplicating Tuesday's results where I was...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/22)

Sorry there was not a Swing for the Fences article last Friday as I took one last family trip before Summer ends. My selections from a week ago Tuesday were decent. While there was only one home run there...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/15)

Another solid Swing for the Fences column on Friday with four home runs. Today’s article will focus primarily on hitters that are hot right now. I am a firm believer in streaks both hot and cold and while it...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/11)

I was able to put together a nice five home run day with my Tuesday lineup, including a double dong from Jake Lamb for my fourth two-homer pick of the season. Friday’s have not been as kind to my...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/8)

My “Bizzaro Day” attempt on Friday where I picked all cheap “Longshot” options didn’t pan out the way I had hoped. Oh well, they were all longshots, after all, I guess I can’t be too disappointed in the results....

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/4)

My Tuesday lineup “only” had two home runs to speak of but the hitters in my lineup still went off with four players exceeding 25 FanDuel points and 7 out of 9 players scoring at least 12 FanDuel points....

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (8/1)

For Tuesday night’s 15-game slate, I am going to do something a little different with my home run predictions write up. I’m going to give a pair of hitters from four different teams who hit close together in their...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (7/28)

There are so many value home run hitters on Friday night’s big 15-game slate, especially on FanDuel, that you can fill out a lineup and still get a top flight pitching option. Hopefully, we can start off the weekend...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (7/25)

Only one long ball from my crew on Friday but every player on the list did produce at least some fantasy points including my longshot Marcus Semien who scored 28.2 FanDuel points despite not hitting a home run. My...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (7/21)

Only a couple of long balls from my Tuesday night lineup but some solid fantasy points from a couple of other hitters without a homer still made it a solid lineup. Friday’s 14-game night main slate looks like a...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (7/18)

Friday night’s picks went very well with 5 HRs including two bombs from Bryce Harper. I’ll look to keep the post All-Star break momentum going with some long ball hitters for Tuesday’s 15-game slate that features a lot of...

Swing for the Fences: DFS HR Predictions for FanDuel and DraftKings (7/14)

Well, it has been two full weeks since my last Swing for the Fences article due to vacation and the MLB All-Star break. I suppose I could have done a Home Run Derby article but without much DFS implications,...
