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!
Hope you all enjoy the Holidays with friends and family. We're under 8 weeks until the Daytona 500 now. We're gearing up for the 2019 fantasy racing season. In the meantime, I found this article over at NBCSports.com pretty helpful. CLICK HERE It tracks all the off-season driver and crew chief changes for the Cup and Xfinity Series.
We'll be back with more pre-season material soon.
We've had a number of driver and crew chief changes that will have a big impact on fantasy NASCAR prospects for 2019. Just yesterday, the news of Kurt Busch moving over to the #1 car for Chip Ganassi Racing was made official. The folks over at nbcsports.com have compiled a list of already announced driver and crew chief changes as well as the open rides for 2019. I encourage you to check it out -- CLINK LINK HERE.
It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out. Generally speaking, for fantasy racing purposes, it makes a lot of sense to avoid guys in new situations at the beginning of the season. This gives them time to work things out and develop the lines of communication needed to get the team running well. So guys like Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson and William Byron will be tougher to roster in the first part of the season. We'll see about Martin Truex. He has the same crew chief and was already affiliated with JGR so it's not a completely new situation, but it is still a big change. I'm taking a wait and see approach on that right now.
