Welcome Degens, we head to Pocono this weekend, the tricky triangle for some double header action racing both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  Toyotas have won the last 5 races here maybe this is the weekend the show out.  This breakdown will be different than previous as we have no practice or qualifying to go off of, the first laps on the track will be green flag race runs.  I will post my 3 favorite plays in each price range in this write up and a fade or two in each as well.  Give me a follow on Twitter @radjer_DFS

Let’s dive into Saturday’s race, as always all data points are from the last 6 races unless noted.

10k+:

Faves:

Kevin Harvick (9):  Top play in this range Avg finish of 6.67 and DK points of 61.29 over the last 6 here, still looking for his first win here.  Offers some PD upside and has been one of the fastest cars since the return.

Chase Elliott (5):  Has also been one of the fastest cars all year, and I believe will continue to be.  Hasn’t been stellar here but the chevys have been all year.

Fades:  

Christopher Bell (36): Offers PD upside but his tag makes him hard to play this weekend,  will need a top 7 to pay off, and this is a short race.

8k-9.9k:

This range is loaded with plays, but here are my Faves.

Kyle Busch (4): Best driver here over the last 6, won 3 times and finished top 10 in all of them.  Hasn’t shown the dominate race yet but this good be the week.  Avg finish of 4.0 and DK  of 74.42

Ryan Blaney (2):  IMO he’s been the best driver this year to this point.  Finally put it all together last week at Dega to get his first win.  He’s priced too cheap given his recent form and starting outside front row and the best pit stall.  He also does have a win here.

William Byron (16): has run well here in his career avg finish of 9.25 and 45.56 Dk points are second in this range behind Kyle.  Starting 16 offers some good upside.

Others I like in this range:

Denny Hamlin (3)

MTJ (11)

Alex Bowman (10)

Matt Kenseth (22)

Kurt Busch (7)

My fades:

Jimmie Johnson (12):  Just like the others in this range better, avg finish of 21.67 and 23.31 DK points.  I won’t have any JJ, just hasn’t been the same since his big wreck here.

6k-7.9k

My Faves

Erik Jones (19):  Will probably be the highest owned driver on the slate, he has an avg finish of 8.33 and 47.2 DK avg over the last six and is priced nicely to fit in your lineup.

Ty Dillon (34):  starting 34th offers solid PD upside I wouldn’t go crazy with Dillon but the avg finish of 23 here provides some PD needed.

My fades:

Bubba Wallace (23): avg finish of 28 and DK of 21.9, and I like the drivers in the above price range better.

The Rest 6k below:

Don’t really see the need to go this low this week with pricing but if need be

Michael McDowell (26): Been rock solid since the return of nascar.

Fades:

Smithley, Poole, Davison, Gase, Mcloed, Bilicki, Yeley IMO
