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'm interest in a few new bets I've seen posted. Truex odds are moving big time to where it's no longer a good play.
Saturday Night Updates Are Below In Bold
I'll be adding more notes on Saturday, but here's where I'm at on Friday night:
Qualifying for Sunday's race will take place a few hours before the race begins, so I won't be able to provide a detailed analysis based on starting position, etc. And that's a huge factor in choosing the right plays in any format -- but especially cash games. So I'm going to talk first about approach and lineup concepts and then move on to some specific driver targets. Some of the guys I talk about here are going to end up being bad plays based on their starting spot, and others I don't mention might be great plays based on their starting spot. You'll need to pay attention Sunday afternoon and update your lineups accordingly.
According to Bob Pockrass, the inspection process will take place before qualifying, so we should not see any post-qualifying penalties causing cars to start in the back. Because of that, cars won't be able to change set ups after qualifying. They will race in the set up they qualify in. So it's very possible we see cars that do not qualify well moving forward during the race because they were set up for longer race runs at the expense of single lap speed during the qualifying run.
General Coke 600 Approach
Top Tier (Over $10k) - more notes to follow on Saturday
Honestly, anyone in this tier is playable. It all depends on starting spot and the type of Dominator and/or position difference upside they offer. Here are my top choices without considering starting spot.
Upper Mid Tier ($8-10k) - more notes to follow on Saturday
Like the Top Tier, anyone in this tier is playable. It all depends on starting spot and the type of Dominator and/or position difference upside they offer. Here are my top choices without considering starting spot.
Lower Mid Tier ($6-8k)
Salary Saver Tier (Under $6K)
Only one bet so far. Not a lot posted yet on the sites I use.
I'm not loving many bets this week. The head to heads I've seen posted seem pretty fairly priced to me. I do see Truex as a slight underdog in some matchups (like vs. Kyle Busch), so I'm monitoring those and may jump.
