They are joined by Ray Smith of NASCAR Statistics, who provides further DFS NASCAR in-depth insights and lineup recommendations. This week’s race is at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sean and Ray weigh in on some of their prime choices and best values. This is another week when Kyle Busch is considered a top contender, but can he finally finish the job? Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson are both among the highest priced drivers, and Sean identifies who he likes the best among the top-level selections. Then the guys delve into some of the picks below the elite levels. Can Denny Hamlin build on a win from last week? Is Matt Kenseth going to build on last week’s strong showing? Jimmie Johnson has a strong history at this track, so we hear how he looks against the rest of the field this time. Sean and Ray also discuss whether Joey Logano can make a push this week, and if Ryan Blaney is one of the better selections for his price tag.
Sean asks Ray to expand on some of the his better bargain picks, including Kasey Kahne. Strong consideration is also given to Ryan Newman. A Scott favorite, Chris Buescher, is also in the mix, and Ray targets a driver under $6,000 who can help you frontload your lineup. The latest news is also touched on, including Alex Bowman’s return to the Cup series next season. Sean then shares his initial DraftKings lineup, Scott reviews his Yahoo selections, and takes a quick look at NASCAR Fantasy Live ownership percentages.
