Earlier than I get into a few of my favourite performs for Sunday’s race at Richmond, I’m going to offer you a preview, and likewise what lineup building will appear like for this race.
Race Preview/Lineup Development
The NASCAR Cup Collection can be heading to Richmond. It’s one other quick observe (3/4 mile) that’s identified to have lengthy inexperienced flag runs and never many DNFs. Drivers can go a lap down in a short time, in order that’s one thing we’ll have to think about when making our DFS lineups this weekend. This race is 400 laps which implies there’s plenty of dominator factors obtainable. Taking a look at previous optimum lineups at Richmond, it appears to be like like we’re going to wish no less than two dominators in money and tournaments. On FanDuel, they don’t have quick laps however on DraftKings, they are going to be essential for having a shot at taking down a gpp. With drivers on completely different methods all through the race, this may make quick laps very unpredictable, however the drivers in higher tools usually tend to rack up these additional fantasy factors. With all of that out of the way in which, let’s get into a few of the guys that I’ll be focusing on in my DFS lineups this weekend.
Martin Truex Jr (DK $11,400 FD $14,000)
Truex has gained each quick observe races this season (Phoenix and Martinsville) and can look to make it three for 3 this weekend at Richmond. He has nice observe historical past with two wins, 5 prime 5’s, seven prime 10’s, 970 laps led, a mean end of 9.2 over his final ten begins right here. He’ll begin 1st, so he has a terrific alternative to attain plenty of dominator factors all through the race. Truex will even be within the Auto-Homeowners Insurance coverage scheme which he at all times appears to run very nicely in. The one draw back with him is that if he loses the lead early and by no means will get again to the entrance, he’ll most likely kill your lineup.
Kyle Larson (DK $10,300 FD $11,200)
Martinsville is Larson’s worst observe, but he nonetheless managed to complete prime 5 regardless of the horrible observe historical past. This actually tells you ways Hendrick Motorsports is in comparison with Chip Ganassi Racing. He had a really quick automobile at Phoenix however was by no means in a position to lead as a result of he failed inspection and had two dashing penalties on pit street. Larson is one other driver that has a terrific observe historical past at Richmond with one win, two prime 5’s, 5 prime 10’s, and a mean end of 11.2. The factor it’s important to maintain is that these stats have been from when he was within the #42. This #5 automobile has confirmed nice velocity this season, so I really like Larson as a prime tier possibility this weekend.
Alex Bowman (DK $8,800 FD $9,000)
Richmond hasn’t been the best observe for Bowman, however he did handle to complete ninth right here final fall so there’s undoubtedly prime 10 upside. Like I stated earlier, these quick laps can be very tough to foretell, however I might see Bowman being a driver that scores a few of these factors due to his elite tools or with a pit street technique. He’ll begin again in twenty fourth, so he presents loads of place differential and may be very reasonably priced on DraftKings and FanDuel. Bowman appears to be like like a robust mid tier play that we will play in each money and tournaments this weekend.
Christopher Bell (DK $7,800 FD $9,200)
Bell has completed prime 10 in each quick observe races this season and put up some dominant stats at Richmond within the Xfinity Collection, so he’s a driver that I actually like within the mid-tier. He’s in nice tools driving the #20 for Joe Gibbs Racing, so it wouldn’t shock me to see him end inside the highest 5 and rack up loads of quick laps all through the race as nicely. I’m hoping folks get scared off of Bell due to his excessive beginning place as a result of that’ll decrease the possession of a driver that has a ton of upside this weekend.
Daniel Suarez ($DK 6,600 FD $5,300)
Suarez has ran very nicely along with his new group this season and likewise has a terrific observe historical past at Richmond, ending prime 10 in three of his six begins at this observe in elite tools. Beginning all the way in which again in twenty seventh, he presents plenty of place differential which makes him a really protected possibility for money video games on this value vary that additionally has plenty of upside for tournaments as nicely. I believe he’ll be fairly chalky, however my subsequent driver can be a man you may pair or use as a pivot off of Suarez that’ll undoubtedly have decrease possession.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr (DK $6,200 FD $6,300)
Stenhouse has been improbable this season ending prime 15 in his final six races. He confirmed nice velocity at Richmond final fall and normally runs nicely at these quick tracks. I do know he doesn’t provide as a lot place differential as a few of the different drivers on this value vary, however Stenhouse is a man that I might see staying on the lead lap and probably contending for a prime 10 end. In tournaments, we’d like the drivers which have a excessive ceiling, and he’s undoubtedly a driver that gives that and is underpriced on each websites.
