I started this blog to provide a casual, recreational level of fantasy NASCAR advice and discussion. I've been playing these contests for a number of years and am annoyed by lineup sellers and groups of players using the same lineup. I'm hoping to give the casual player some help in building solid lineups that can beat that annoying crowd most of the time. I'm not a "tout" and don't do this for a living, so proceed accordingly. I hope you enjoy the discussion here and Good Luck!
I don't have a whole lot to say here because I'm pretty much out from a cash game perspective this week. I don't like to play obvious chalk weeks because I want to play 6 on 6 instead of 4 on 4. This week, I'd expect everyone to have Harvick and Logano, so that reduces the competition to 4 against 4. There's just too much luck and randomness involved at that point for my liking. It makes it worse that there's additional good and pretty obvious plays starting in the mid- to late- 20s starting spots. Guys like Buescher, Byron, etc. Play light and hold onto your resources for the last few races or other sports.
We'll see what happens in qualifying but I'm pretty locked in right now on Friday night. Here's what I'm looking at:
For the super speedway races, I go along with the strategy of using guys starting in the back half of the field. Especially in cash games, there's just too much risk starting anyone in the front half of the field given the wrecks and attrition rate we see at these races. So there's not a whole lot of detail to go into until we know starting spots. Here's a few notes to guide your lineup building:
I'll add a few notes for the Cup Series race after qualifying on Saturday.
200 laps at Dover, so a good chunk of fastest laps and laps led points are out there. Based on past performance and Friday practice, it looks like Cole Custer and Christopher Bell are the two most likely dominators and we can probably fit them both in a cash game lineup with four decent options behind them. Here are my main targets:
