There isn’t much to be said here that wasn’t already in my winner’s predictions post. We have to wait and see just how much the field changes from race 1 to race 2 on these back to back schedules. We’re about to see something we’ve never seen before and there is no good way to predict it.

At least for fantasy terms, we know which drivers are at least going to run well, and which ones might best to stay clear of. Some driver will inevitably find their groove in this second race after they might’ve struggled in the first, but the front runners will more than likely remain upfront.

I break my favorites down into three tiers. Upper-tier drivers worth $12,000-$9,000. Mid-tier worth $8,999-$7,000. Lower-tiers $6,999 and under. All based on DraftKings price ranges.

Upper:

  1. Alex Bowman – $10,000
  2. Kevin Harvick – $11,600
  3. Denny Hamlin – $10,700
  4. Jimmie Johnson – $9,100
  5. Martin Truex Jr. – $11,100

Mid:

  1. Erik Jones – $8,500
  2. Matt Kenseth – $7,600
  3. Kurt Busch – $8,700
  4. Tyler Reddick – $7,700
  5. Matt DiBenedetto – $7,000

Lower:

  1. John Hunter Nemecheck – $6,200
  2. Ryan Newman – $6,400
  3. Ryan Preece – $5,400
  4. Cole Custer – $6,600
  5. Ty Dillon – $5,900

Best Line-Up:

  1. Alex Bowman – $10,000
  2. Jimmie Johnson – $9,100
  3. Erik Jones – $8,500
  4. Tyler Reddick – $7,700
  5. Matt Kenseth – $7,600
