I debated even writing a Fantasy list because this is going to be a crapshoot the likes of which we’ve never seen. More than likely we will see the usual characters running up front, but we really don’t know how this will affect teams.

Some big teams may struggle to adapt to the lack of prep time and lack of team members. It’s near impossible to predict who will win this race or even come in the top five. I will use the same tactic as I had in my winner’s predictions article. Drivers who are always good at Darlington as well as whose been getting seat time in the sims.

Word of warning, since NASCAR is the only sport actively running, there will be a high number of people betting on these races. DraftKings will be extremely busy, so competition will be stiff.

I break my favorites down into three tiers. Upper-tier drivers worth $11,800-$9,000. Mid-tier worth $8,999-$7,000. Lower-tiers $6,999 and under. All based on DraftKings price ranges.

Upper:

  1. Denny Hamlin: $11,100
  2. Kyle Busch: $11,800
  3. Kevin Harvick: $11,500
  4. Erik Jones: $9,200
  5. Martin Truex Jr.: $10,800

Mid:

  1. Kurt Busch: $8,500
  2. Matt Kenseth: $7,900
  3. Austin Dillon: $7,400
  4. Chris Buescher: $7,000
  5. William Byron: $8,700

Lower:

  1. Ryan Newman: $6,500
  2. Ty Dillon: $5,600
  3. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: $6,800
  4. Bubba Wallace: $6,000
  5. Corey LaJoie: $5,800
