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!
If you follow me on Twitter @dfsnascarguy you know it's been a great weekend so far with big wins in the Truck and Xfinity races on Saturday. That's four in a row dating back to last week's Bristol sweep. We've had a good run here in cash games, but I'm changing course a bit for Sunday because of how crazy the DK pricing is. Here's where I'm going:
First, the crazy DK pricing. A host of guys are wildly under priced, including Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski, Eric Jones, Cole Custer and Michael McDowell. With this pricing structure, I think we're going to see very, very chalky cash game lineups built around Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, Cole Custer and Michael McDowell. There's a little flexibility on the last spot, but a few likely highly owned guys there too. So, what we're likely to see is a lot of ties or 1-on-1 driver matchups deciding the outcome of cash games. Not the thing I like to be playing.
So, what to do? I'm going to play lighter overall and focus more on a few tournament lineups. I'll still be using some of the chalky plays but will be trying to combine them with high ceiling, lower owned guys who have the potential to blow up the slate. Here are a few guys I'm focused on:
