iRacing DFS Pro Invitational – Dover – May 3, 2020
This week at Dover we get an inversion of 10 cars, and specifically, the top three finishers from Talladega starting at the tail end of the field. This is similar to last week, though it caused some confusion through qualifying. As always, make sure to confirm the starting position before the slate locks.
Timmy Hill – DK: $12,000 | FD: $12,000
With a $2,000 price increase for William Byron, we have finally reached the point where it won’t be easy to build around Byron. Last week Byron started at the back of the field with the inversion and still managed a sixth-place finish. Timmy Hill is expensive in his own right here, but excluding his 11th place finish last week at Talladega, Hill has finished inside the top three in his last four iRaces. When you speak to consistency, Timmy Hill is your guy as he has yet to score less than 48 fantasy points in any of the iRacing events. The only knock here is we haven’t got a lot of fast laps or laps led out of Hill, but he has proven he is one of the top three racers in this format.
JJ Yeley – DK: $5,000 | FD: $3,000
We don’t have a ton of data or information on Yeley in iRacing as he participated in his first-ever last week at Talledega, but that first race came away with a respectable 15th place finish after starting 20th. There is risk here, but both sites are still pricing Yeley towards the absolute bottom of the barrel for pricing. In a format that has a handful of guys who consistently finish towards the top (Byron, Hill, Smithley) and also have very high prices, we are going to need to find someone to off-set that pricing. In this range of prices, we have a lot of Nascar veterans who have struggled at the iRacing level, so I am fine taking the even steeper discount on Yeley and seeing if his finish was more than just a one-off performance. If he can turn in even a 30 fantasy point race, we are looking at 6x value on DK and 10x on FanDuel.
