Core Plays

Ryan Blaney – DK: $10,000 | FD: $11,600 – Starting 10th

Blaney can be frustrating at times due to inconsistency, but picking and choosing the spots to use him is also important. Blaney led 150 laps to a 112 fantasy point outing back in July at Texas and has always benefited from intermediate tracks that let him capture his full speed. Blaney has had strong showings at other 1.5-mile tracks, like Charolette, Atlanta, and Miami – all rendered 54 fantasy points or higher performances. Kevin Harvick is the best overall graded driver at this track and him from the pole could render a ton of laps led early. I think the differential upside and past success gives a slight bump for me to Blaney at $1,000 cheaper, but don’t let me talk you off of Harvick.

Michael McDowell – DK: $6,100 | FD: $6,500 – Starting 23rd

McDowell has been a popular well for all DFS players this year mostly due to the fact his price has stayed pretty consistent and with an average fantasy output of near 30 per week, it makes sense that McDowell frequently carries a decent chunk of ownership. Some of McDowell’s best races on the year have come at 1.5-mile intermediate tracks, including a 19th place finish just last week in Kansas. The last time McDowell raced at Texas back in July he started 34th and finished 15th. Atlanta, Miami, Kansas, Texas have all rendered 30 fantasy point or higher output.
