The Dongers Club – Sat, Sept 12th

I forgot how busy my Saturday’s can be when NFL and CFB are both coming back.  But I have a clear mind going into this Saturday night MLB DFS slate and Baseball is still King in my mind.  Hey, how about that Mondesi streak?  Goodness gracious man.  Happy Mike Trout Saturday btw.

Eight game slate tonight as the Giants and Padres are PPD due to COVID.

Breaking news:  Pirates/Royals risk of PPD because … of a shooting?  That’s all I know.



  • All games play
  • Roof closed in Texas


It’s atrocious tonight.   

Zac Gallen

Another spot where I do not want to actually use Gallen, but there’s literally no other choices out there.  He won’t get blown up, but I don’t see a dominant outing coming from him today.  Problem is on DraftKings you are having a hard time finding two pitchers to trust without including him.

Dakota Hudson

I have a low scoring game tonight between the Reds and Cardinals.  Hudson’s pitching long enough so we can trust him.

Update:  I’m also considering just a game stack of SP in this game.


Kyle Hendricks

Always better at home, but RHP vs the Brewers are the play these days.  They had their 19 run game two nights ago and I doubt they score more than 4 the rest of the month.  Ok, that’s a bit extreme, but you get the idea.


The guy in the picture above — play him.


LA Angels vs Colorado Rockies

With lots of decent hitting spots tonight, I am going Story and Trout and moving on unless it’s a nice value play.  Righties against Barria.

Pirates vs Royals

Assuming this game does play it’s another doozy tonight.  Hunter Dozier will go yard.  Maybe twice?  But explore the Pirates side of the house as well.  Really liking some Colin Moran and *gulp* Josh Bell…
