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!
Sunday Morning Update - I'm trending away from Kyle Busch. Really hate the Lap 20 caution and the chance for someone to jump him on pit road. Also no guarantee he leads at all since Logano is one of the best drivers on the restarts.
Update #2 - Truex and Kenseth to the rear for failed inspection.
Let's turn the page on that Trucks race. It was a fluky race and a nightmare for most from a Fantasy NASCAR perspective. About the only thing we can take from it are that it's really, really hard to pass near the front of the field. And there are some strategy options available to get track position. So keep those things in mind heading into Sunday.
Looking back at last year's Kentucky race, we saw pit road decisions and mistakes were a critical factor. With how important track position is, and how little speed fall off there is in the tire, we could see some 2-tire or fuel only stops throughout the race. And being mistake free on pit road will be essential. All of that leads to a little more variance because it's impossible to predict what strategies everyone will use and when someone will make a mistake or have something crazy happen on pit road. Just look back at Indy last week where we had a super speedway style "Big One" on pit road.
What to do with Kyle Busch?
What to do with Christopher Bell?
What salary savers are the best targets?
What mid tier guys are viable for cash games? I'd say the group from $8,000 to $8,600 are the targets here.
I'm still looking at bets. Will update if anything looks really good to me. I think the market has caught up and is pretty close to spot on lately, so not as much has been jumping out to me lately.
