DraftKings & FanDuel NASCAR DFS – South Point 400 – September 26, 2021

Core Plays

Joey Logano – DK: $9,900 | FD: $10,500  – Starting 9th

There isn’t a stand-out dominating racer at Vegas, but what we have is instead a solid group of drivers like Keselowski, Larson, Logano, Truex, Kyle Busch, and Ryan Blaney who over seven races all hold an average finish in the top eight. When it comes however to dominator categories, Logano stands out above the field with two wins over his last seven races here and six top tens. Not only that, Logano has led 324 laps over that stretch. Logano’s last two races in Vegas have been subpar, but from 2014-2020, Logano led at least 25 laps in eight of nine races, including wins in 2019 and 2020. While it has been a rougher 2021 season, Logano’s price here isn’t too high and his starting position offers us some wiggle room. Ultimately, this is a race with a lot of options and some pricing that isn’t too restrictive.

Chase Briscoe – DK: $6,000 | FD: $7,200 – Starting 19th

Over Briscoe’s last ten races, he has scored above 24 fantasy points in seven of them, but 37 or more in five of them. While Briscoe only has four top-ten finishes on the year, he does carry an average finish of 18.9 and average fantasy points of 27.2. While at the Cup Level Briscoe hasn’t produced any results to write home about at Vegas, he did see a lot of success at the Xfinity level, winning his last two races at Vegas in February and September of 2020. In each of these races, Briscoe led at least 89 laps with 164 led in the latter. Briscoe has returned 4.5x value or higher in his last three races.
