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!
Short post for this one because I don't mess much with this "race". It's a really long season with over 90 races when all three series are considered. A key part of bankroll management is knowing when to take it easy. With a field of only 18 cars this week, it's really not a smart idea to play much (if any) DFS because lineups will be so similar. Especially with the 11 and 22 sure to be in almost every lineup, most H2H and cash games will come down to whether you have one different driver then your opponent(s) and how that driver does. Not the risk I want to take out of the box in a new season.
If you want to burn some money this week, I think the best idea is to lay $10 or so on a copule of the long shots to win the race. With only 18 cars in the field and a wreck almost certain to take out a chunk of the field, we could very well see an odd ball winner. I'm seeing Eric Jones +2000, Austin Dillon +2500 and Ryan Newman +2800. Others of note Jimmie Johnson/Alex Bowman +1600, Kyle Larson +2000 and Kurt Busch +1400. That's where I'd focus any money you want to fire this week.
ADDED: I'm also seeing a few head to head driver match ups approach +150 odds. For example, Kyle Larson +145 to finish in front of Ryan Blaney. That's another potential area to hit given how random the outcome is likely to be.
