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!
Back to more of a normal schedule this week with one practice and qualifying on Friday, two practices on Saturday and the race on Sunday. So we shouldn't have any race day inspection issues like we did with Watkins Glen.
200 laps at Michigan, so we've got 100 fastest lap points and 50 laps led points in play on DK. In the last few Michigan races, we've seen the top "Dominator" lead about half the laps and get a similar number of fastest laps. So there will be more focus on the potential dominators this week.
Here's an initial list of guys I'm most focused on heading into Friday. It's a longer list then I'd like to start from for two reasons. First, I think we've got a bit of a deeper field at the top. In other words, I don't see the Big Three as far out in front of the field as we saw at other tracks. I can see a race Dominator coming from somewhere other than that group of three. Maybe that changes with practice and qualifying -- we'll see. Second, there's a pretty deep group of mid- to low- priced salary saver type guys. More of them are in play then normal. We'll be able to chop down this list as the weekend goes along and we see practice speeds and starting spots, etc. So here they are:
I'll have some Xfinity notes on Friday night and a full/final Cup update Saturday night.
