Fantasy Nascar DFS Top Plays for the Toyota Owners 400
High Priced Drivers
The first driver to discuss is Kevin Harvick, who was priced at $10,800 and started in 10th place. Harvick has been impressive at Richmond Raceway and has had a solid season thus far. His performance at a similar track in Phoenix was also noteworthy. Despite the high price tag, Harvick proved to be a strong contender throughout the race. His DK rating was 92.67, and he was projected to score 51.77 DK points. Additionally, he was owned by 23.1% of lineups, which made him a popular pick.
The second high-priced driver to consider is Kyle Larson, priced at $10,600 and starting in 9th place. Larson was also impressive at Phoenix, and his discount compared to his teammate, William Byron, made him an attractive option. His DK rating was 96.91, and he was projected to score 47.63 DK points. Larson was also owned by 23.5% of lineups, making him a popular pick.
Mid Priced Drivers
Moving on to the mid-priced drivers, Ryan Blaney stood out, priced at $8,800 and starting in 17th place. He has been consistently good at Richmond Raceway over the years and had a starting spot under $9k. He even had the potential to be a dominator late in the race and had the potential to earn some extra points with the place differential. His DK rating was 88.04, and he was projected to score 43.01 DK points.
The second mid-priced driver worth mentioning is Brad Keselowski, who was priced at $8,300 and started in 24th place. Keselowski has shown some promise this season, and Richmond Raceway was one of the better tracks for RFK racing last season. He provided a strong place differential play in the mid-range, with a DK rating of 94.69 and a projection of 43.02 DK points.
Low Priced Drivers
Finally, let’s look at some of the low-priced drivers. Austin Dillon, priced at $7,200 and starting in 27th place, had a great track record at Richmond Raceway over the years. Last season, he performed well in the new car. His DK rating was 70.19, and he was projected to score 36.53 DK points. He was owned by 20.8% of lineups.
The second low-priced driver to consider is Aric Almirola, priced at $7,600 and starting in 32nd place. This team has shown some more speed as a whole in 2023, and Almirola has been solid at Richmond Raceway over the years. A top-fifteen finish with top-ten upside was not out of reach. His DK rating was 68.78, and he was projected to score 39.71 DK points. He was owned by 20.7% of lineups.
In summary, some of the high-priced drivers worth considering were Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson. Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski were mid-priced drivers to watch, while Austin Dillon and Aric Almirola were low-priced drivers with potential. DK Projection and DK Rating were key metrics to consider while making picks.
