Adam Dunn Coming on Strong Headed Into the All-Star Break

I was a big fan of Adam Dunn (pictured 2008 Upper Deck Piece of History baseball card) from a fantasy baseball perspective headed into this season. Over the past 3 years Dunn has only had a .247 batting average but has hit exactly 40 home runs in each of those seasons – that consistency is great for fantasy baseball. In the post-steroid era that is elite production. Dunn has always drawn a lot of walks which enables him to consistently get 100 runs to go with his 100 RBIs each year.

In the latest scoring period Dunn has 4 home runs and 5 in the last 7 days. Putting him on pace for 44. He did loose some at bats earlier in the year (thanks to Dusty Bakers brilliant managing) so 20-25 home runs post all start break seems very doable. He’s only batting .229 this year with only 1 stolen base (he’s normally good for 6-10). I think this makes Adam Dunn a great buy low target in many fantasy baseball leagues.
