This week’s event is at Pocono Raceway, the second of the season at the site. Sean and Ray weigh in on some of their prime choices and best values. First, the latest “Silly Season” news is covered, with the looming driver and team changes, and insights on if performances in the coming weeks will be affected because of such developments. In a rare twist for this week’s race, qualifying is actually on the same day of the race, which makes for more challenging forecasting. You may have to enter your initial lineups now and be ready to tweak them in a shorter window on Sunday. Kyle Busch is at the top of the salary ladder again, but can he finish what he started last time at “The Tricky Triangle”? He was dominant for a good portion of the last race at the site, but was not able to stay in the mix for the victory. This could be another event where a top driver like Busch dominates, or it could turn into a crazy crash-fest like last week’s race at Indianapolis. Kevin Harvick is a good bet for a strong finish, and while Jimmie Johnson is short on recent momentum, he has excellent history at Pocono. The pricing on Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano has dropped. Denny Hamlin was once a regular standout at this track, but can he regain that form? Of course, the Engels then answer the question if Ryan Blaney can recapture the form that led to his first career victory at this site earlier this season.
Top value performers such as Chris Buescher are highlighted to help you fully fill out your lineups. Sean then shares his initial DraftKings lineup, Scott takes a quick look at NASCAR Fantasy Live ownership percentages.
