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!
I'm not going to do much more with driver targets until after qualifying this week. At these plate tracks, so much of what I want to do is decided by qualifying position that I can't even narrow things down in a useful way until we see where drivers will start. We really want to focus on position difference potential this week and we have no idea what that will be until we know the starting lineup.
As far as the weekend schedule goes, it's unique this week. On Friday, there are two 50-minute practices but no qualifying. On Saturday, there is qualifying but no practice. Unlike a normal week, practice at the plate tracks really doesn't tell us a whole lot about who's going to have success on Sunday. So, unless some huge news breaks on Friday, I'm not planning on a post-practice update. The next update will likely be a final update with DraftKings and FanDuel targets late Saturday.
Here's just a few more driver notes to keep in mind:
