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!
FanDuel is launching a fantasy NASCAR product this weekend. The first group of contests is now live. Here's a brief rundown:
It seems really odd to award .1 for a lap completed. And this takes some of the bite out of a race dominator who starts at the front. For example, a guy who starts from pole, leads 200 laps and wins the race scores almost the same as a guy who starts last because he failed qualifying inspection, doesn't lead a lap but finishes in the Top 5.
Our friend @DKNascar on twitter has run a few spreadsheets that show how drivers would have done thus far this season using the new FanDuel scoring system. I'd encourage you to check it out and follow him.
At least for this week, I've got to imagine most people playing FanDuel will be loading their lineups with drivers starting towards the back of the field.
