DraftKings Xfinity NASCAR DFS – A-GAME 200 – April 30, 2022

Core Plays

Justin Allgaier – $10,300 – Starting 7th

We head to “The Monster Mile” at Dover this weekend for the A-GAME 200. As you guessed, Dover is a mile-long track, featuring 200 laps and this is a track that one driver above all else stands out. If reading bold headlined names above this sentence is a strong suit of yours, you’ve probably already come to the conclusion that that driver is Justin Allgaier. Now, this is a bit of a double-sided play here as Justin Allgaier is arguably having one of his worst seasons over the last six years with just four top-ten finishes in nine races on the year. Over the last five races, Allgaier has finished worse than 14th four times and the 14th is his highest finish in that stretch. So with the negative out of the way, the positive is since 2013, Allgaier has finished 12th or better at Dover in every single start. He finished 12th in each run in 2013 and 11th in 2017, but besides that, it has all been top seven or better finishes. From 2017-2021, Allgaier has seven top-five finishes with two wins and two seconds. Allgaier has led at least one lap in each of his last seven races here and 67 or more in three of his last four here. If you trust track history and confidence then Allgaier is your guy this year. If you believe in seasonal results over it, then spending up on John Hunter Nemechek is your next best option, followed by Gragson, and then Allmendinger if I had to rank them.

Parker Retzlaff – $6,200 – Starting 23rd

If you read this article weekly I know I saw this same thing a lot, but it is just the truth and that is the value at this level is very volatile and highly variable. From poor equipment to inexperienced drivers, there is a reason some guys are priced this low so you should never be going all-in on the name here. That being said, I still like to write this article with one high-priced and one low-priced option for the reader’s sake. The low-priced option that ends up here also usually ends up as my highest owned low-priced guy, so I am not just putting a name to paper and not backing with it. However, there have been a ton of mixed results from this spot in the past. Okay, got that out of the way, I am rolling with Parker Retzlaff after back-to-back strong showings at Richmond and Martinsville. Retzlaff is just 18-years-old and has just three Xfinity races under his belt and one of them ended with mechanical failure. In the other two races that he was able to finish he netted a 12th and 10th place finish for 37 and 39 fantasy points. Retzlaff has experience at Dover, making two ARCA starts there in the past (finishing 7th and 12th). There is a lot of risk on a rookie driver here, but he has shown a lot of chops in the last two races.
