Our biggest DFS NASCAR bargain play of the weekend ended up qualifying on the pole. AustinDillon ($6,900) beat Kevin Harvick for the top spot and showed good speed in qualifying. He came out of nowhere as he was outside the Top 20 in both practices. Place Differential is a huge deal at Chicagoland and with Dillon starting on the pole he can’t move up. This makes him a bit of a low upside play but with his price he is still worth a long look.
The guy Dillon beat to the pole, KevinHarvick($11,200) ran in the Top 3 in both practices and has shown good speed all weekend. Harvick’s upside is a bit capped with him starting this far up but he should be a great cash game play. If you want to play someone other than Kyle Busch and Truex Jr., Harvick is the clear DFS NASCAR choice.
My top DFS NASCAR play for this week didn’t change from my original article and didn’t change from last week. MartinTruexJr. ($10,900) is the hottest driver in the series and qualified 18th. Although Truex Jr. has not shown great speeds this week, his recent Chicagoland success and momentum puts him as my top driver. He should run in the Top 5 and contend for a win. Coming from the 18th spot, he should add great upside.
ChaseElliott ($9,700) and KyleLarson ($9,500) qualified 13th and 14th respectively. These two have a better Chicagoland history than anyone else in the series. They should both run better than they start and provide good PD points. Elliott will be highly owned but Larson could be less owned, making him a great high risk, high reward DFS NASCAR GPP option.
DanielSuarez ($7,400) should provide great value as he starts 29th and was ninth in final practice for lap averages. Suarez also has an Average Finish of 11.5 at the site. Suarez is a bargain at his price and is a great value option to make space for Truex Jr. or another top priced DFS NASCAR guy.
If you are looking for a DFS NASCAR punt play, Matt DiBenedetto ($6,700) ran pretty well in practice but qualified 30th. He is also coming off a career best finish of fourth at Sonoma.
