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!
There are several good cars starting pretty far back Sunday night. But, to roster them, you're going to give up much chance of getting a lot of Dominator points for laps led and fastest laps because almost all those points come from cars starting in the Top 10. In fact, looking at the last four races here, of the cars that scored the most Dominator points (either 50+ laps led or 25+ fastest laps), 20 of those 21 cars started in the Top 10. And the lone outlier started 16th. It's only more difficult to pass with the new package this year, so I don't expect this to change at all.
Everyone will start with Kyle Busch and from there you have to decide whether you want to stay more conservative and get guys with position difference upside or go more aggressive and get a couple guys starting in the Top 10 in hopes of getting the DOM points.
Either way you go, here are the guys to target:
Bottom line for me as of now is to play this one more conservative and go for position difference in cash games with guys like Almirola, Newman, etc. There's just too much risk trying to chase DOM points and if you get one of those guys wrong you're toast. In tournaments, I'd do the exact opposite thing.
