Today we’re going to try and dig into this Slate and figure out which players top the charts in our “Dong Detector”. Our goal is to help you find HR hitters.
As we all know, everyone loves the long ball and in the DFS world, especially on Social Media, the MLB Long Ball is King. The HR is the key In DFS and having the player or two with a HR or two (aka Double Dong) can lead to winning lots of $$$.
Day Early Dong 7/14
With a 45% hard-hit% and a 57% FlyBall rate v LHP, Perez has another matchup v LHP; Cole Hamels. If you can squeeze him in, I think we were a Day early with this DONG Detector pick yesterday
Dong Detector picks for 7/15
Mike Napoli (TEX)1B
Against LHP Danny Duffy, Mike Napoli has 2 DONGs and a .667 BA in 10 PAs
Corey Dickerson (TB) OF
Left handed bats have been smashing RHP J.C. Ramirez to the likes of a .381 wOBA and a 46% hard contact rate. He’s allowed 1.44HR/9 this season. Corey Dickerson has seen his career take off since joining the Rays. Fresh off his first All-Star start, I expect his .258 ISO v RHP to lead to a DONG tonight.
Cody Bellinger (LAD) 1B
Bellinger’s mom has been hotter than him over the last week, but that’s okay, we are back at hitting baseballs, not hitting on MILFs. Tonight, Bellinger get to face RHP Jose Urena and his 42% flyball rate and 1.22 HR/9. The bonus is that the Marlins bullpen is one of the worst in MLB. Dodger bats are in a great spot and can be very stackable.
Brandon Drury (ARI) 2B
With Cano and Murphy being the popular play tonight, Brandon Drury is going to be nice value DONG. He faces RHP Mike Foltynewicz and his 1.37HR/9. The winds will be blowing out to Left Center and temperatures and humidity will be high again. Some more Peachy Dongs!
Kris Bryant (CHC) 3B
Temps are up and humidity is horrible in Baltimore tonight, you saw what happened in the same conditions last night, right??? Tonight, the Cubs get a chance to bombard Wade Miley with several DONGs. Kris Bryant has seen his hard-hit% increase by 7% in the last 15 days and has a great .299 ISO v LHP. Miley is known to give up the DONG easily; allowing 1.34HR/9. Crab cakes and Dongs are what this game will be about tonight!
Scott Schebler (CIN) OF
The winds will be blowing out to right field tonight and the lefties in the game will have some fun. Schebler has a .224 ISO v RHP. His hard-hit% is up 4% over the last 15 days. Tonight, he faces Mad Max. This will scare most DFS players from Reds bats. Good, because you can punt with Schebler and win all the money.

Good luck and stay in the green!
