DraftKings & FanDuel NASCAR DFS – Bass Pro Shops Night Race – September 19, 2020

Core Plays

Kyle Busch – DK: $10,400 | FD: $12,000 – Starting 9th

Kyle Busch has had a polarizing season of some highs but more lows which have led to some inconsistent fantasy payoffs for us. Busch hasn’t taken a checkered flag since November of 2019, though he has still finished over half of his races in the top ten this year. We’ve seen some recent success out of Busch as he has finished sixth and seventh in his last two races but he carries some recent momentum into Bristol as well as he has finished inside the top four in his last three races here and has won three of his last six. Busch had led at least 30 laps in six of his last eight races at Bristol and has over 100 laps led in four of those. We can attribute a bit of the struggle of this year to the weirdness of no practice and qualifying, but Busch is a talented enough of a driver to also be able to get his team to the front. Busch’s price is pretty low on FanDuel this week, and DraftKings isn’t too bad factoring in the potential differential we can get. This is Bristol, so the front should stick, but Busch should be able to battle as his last three starts here has seen him start 7, 31, and 17 and finish 4, 4, and 1.

Tyler Reddick – DK: $6,600 | FD: $7,500 – Starting 17th

Reddick’s first cup go-about at Bristol did not go so well as he finished 28th after only finishing 199 laps of the race. However, Reddick has had some success at shorter tracks, most recently finishing 11th at Richmond and 13th at Dover. Now, neither are exactly like Bristol, but Reddick actually has seen success at this track at the Xfinity level. In Reddick’s last two races here for Xfinity he finished second and first while leading a combined 80 laps. These Xfinity stats don’t mean a ton to us as it is an entirely different field, but it does show he knows how to handle a track that is as weird and small as Bristol. Passing isn’t the easiest here, so we don’t necessarily want to just stack the back, as going down a lap or two can happen extremely quick here. Reddick in the middle of the pack for a cheap price feels like as safe of money as we can get this weekend.
