DraftKings Xfinity NASCAR DFS – New Holland 250 – August 21, 2021
Ty Gibbs – DK: $11,000 – Starting 10th
While the price is a little high here, Ty Gibbs has quickly established himself as a potential future face of racing as the 18-year-old has eight top-ten finishes in his 11 races on the year, including three wins. Gibbs has had a fastest lap in every race he has run this year and four or more in nine of the eleven races. Gibbs has also led at least two laps in each of his last five, with three of those races hitting double-digit laps led. Gibbs is averaging 48.9 fantasy points per race on the year which is also a stat that is being held down by his one bad race at Road America in which he finished with negative points after a 33rd place finish. Gibbs starts tenth here, yet he carries the best odds on to win at 3-1 for the race. We can peg Gibbs for some fast laps as his equipment has been the best in the Series, likely some laps led, and a 3-1 chance at a win. Gibbs just offers the total package for me this week and I do not mind paying up for him. While Gibbs doesn’t have any experience at this track, he is racing in the ARCA race, which will give him a little extra practice.
Colin Garrett – DK: $6,000 – Starting 29th
We have only seen Garrett once this year and that was back in April at Talladega where he finished 15th after starting 22nd. The previous two races from Garrett came in 2020 at Kansas and Miami, two races where he finished with 48 and 36 fantasy points with a 14th and 16th place finish. Garrett will be in the car most recently driven by Brandon Gdovic which netted a 16th place finish. The lower-tier of this player pool is filled with guys who have run all year and struggled to ever find value, with only one driver priced below Garrett averaging more than 22 fantasy points on the year. I admittedly don’t know a ton about Garrett, but his small sample results are positive and I rather take a shot at him rather than be disappointed by Gray Gaulding one more time this year.
