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!
Bets - posted 1/25/23
In the last seven races at Daytona, we've had four long shot winners in Justin Haley, Michael McDowell, Austin Cindric and Austin Dillon. So, when odds were posted a few weeks ago, I looked for good/experienced drivers in good equipment at long odds. Here were the four best bets I saw --
The 2023 NASCAR season is just around the corner, so here's an update on my plans for this season:
It’s an interesting DFS slate for Sunday’s race. Obviously, the Toyotas have a ton of speed and are the favorites to lead laps, run fastest laps and finish very well. On the flip side, we have a number of guys who usually run near the front starting way back in the field after poor practice and qualifying sessions on Sunday. Let’s go through some of my favorite plays –
With same day practice and qualifying for the Xfinity Series, I won't be doing a DFS write up for that. I will have a full DFS article for the Cup Series race posted Saturday night.
On the Xfinity side, I'm seeing Sheldon Creed with some wildly high odds. I've seen +500 Top 5, +1000 Top 3 and +4000 to win. All are strong plays in my view. This is a top tier RCR car capable of winning races. And Creed pretty desperately needs to win to make the playoffs so we know they'll be going all out.
Here are my top drivers for Sunday's Cup Series race on the Indy road course--
Glad to be back with some notes for the Indy road course race for the Xfinity Series on Saturday. Here are the guys at the top of my driver pool -- remembering that I'm focused mostly on cash games and single-entry tournaments:
Just wanted to do a quick update. All is good, just too busy with family and life to spend the extra time on write ups the last month or so. I will not be doing anything for Pocono, but I do plan getting back in the game here for the Indy Road Course and beyond.
Thanks for your support!
Didn't have time to write up Xfinity or Trucks, but I'll have my Cup thoughts up Saturday night.
Here are some notes and my top targets for Sunday:
I'll be posting Xfinity on Friday night and Cup on Saturday night this weekend. Good luck.
Another weird practice and qualifying session leaves us with a lot of position difference plays starting further back then expected. Let's go through the guys I think will be most popular and talk about a few pivots--
With the way qualifying played out, we're going to have a lot of lineups looking alike. I'm going to go over what should be the popular plays with a few pivots off them.
It will be Xfinity only for me this weekend. I'll post my notes here late Friday night after practice and qualifying.
Looks like we'll have some real popular drivers in cash games and single entry tournaments. Here is how I see most lineup builds going--
