DraftKings Xfinity NASCAR DFS – O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 – October 24, 2020
Harrison Burton – DK: $10,400 – Starting 12th
We fall into a similar situation that we did last week and that is that Burton is offering us the best odds to win the race, at the best starting position to get us differential, at a price that isn’t completely breaking the bank. The Xfinity series has been a two-horse race between Austin Cindric and Chase Briscoe over the past handful of races and both of those are also in play, but Burton should be able to manage a top-eight finish here at a Texas track that he ran well at back in mid-July. In that race, Burton finished fourth after starting seventh and he also led 17 laps while having 13 of the fastest laps. Burton shakes out as the second-highest projected driver this week on FantasyCruncher.
David Starr – DK: $5,300 – Starting 23rd
Starr is another guy who you are going to get what you pay for – we aren’t going to have any top ten upside, but at this bottom-dwelling price there is still some upside here and I do think Starr shakes out as one of the best point per dollar plays this week. I may be chasing small narratives here, but Starr is from Texas and though this might not exactly be a home-court advantage, it is a track he knows. In fact, back in July, Starr started this race 23rd (just like this week) and managed a 14th place finish. With him running in his home state, we can at least have the comfort of knowing this team will run out the best car for their driver.
