Fantasy Daytona 500 top tier picks
You will see his name a top almost every fantasy picks page and for good reason. He is predicted every year to win and it's almost a matter of time for the Team Penske star. He can look dominate at times on the Superspeedway tracks and Dale Earnhardt calls him the best driver in the pack. He will be high owned so you can fade him and hope for a poor finish which has happened in previous years here. See where he qualifies before you decide to fade, if he's top ten his chances at winning are high.
Keselowski's teammate Joey Logano will also be highly touted on most Daytona pick lists, he and Brad work great together and if they get the lead they will be extremely hard to pass. He finished 6th last year and so far this year Team Penske has won 6 of the last 9 Superspeedways. He should be a top 5 finish this year barring any mishaps.
Hamlin is one of the most skilled drivers in the race and won the Daytona 500 in 2016. He has 7 Daytona speedway wins and is one of the best restrictor-plate drivers in the field. He is great value on Draftkings and he's my favorite pick of the top 5 salary guys.
Daytona 500 Sleeper Picks for 2018
Has seen to figure out the restrictor-plate races and performs best in these types of races improving every race. He's super cheap and will be very low owned especially if he qualifies way back in the field. He has the potential to finish top ten and at $5900 salary that will be a gift.
Another driver who has better potential in restrictor-plate races with the equalized field. At $7000 he provides salary relief in order to stack some of the big priced guys. He has a great feel for avoiding crashes which if some of the bug guys get caught up in and he avoids is a big time benefit to your fantasy lineups. He is a Ford driver and then perform great at Daytona.
