NASCAR DFS Picks, Tiers & Rankings: 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300
Driver As | Fast Thoughts
Martin Truex Jr. continues to lead the field in NASCAR DFS points scored per race (45.6 per DraftKings). He has been on a heater lately and returns to a track he finished sixth at last season, leading 42 laps along the way.
Kevin Harvick is the king of the shorter flat tracks, scoring T5s at both Phoenix and Richmond this season.
It’s hard to fade William Byron and Kyle Larson with how well they’re running this season. However, you really have to pay up for them this week, with their price tags reaching over $11,000. I prefer to pivot to the $10,000-or-below range for my top NASCAR DFS drivers this week.
Driver Bs | Fast Thoughts
Ryan Blaney is hot off a win and ran fourth here last season. His speed metrics (courtesy of ifantasyrace.com) were the second-best across the board. $10,100 is a fair price for him this week.
Bubba Wallace continues to shine. Including the All-Star Race, the No. 23 car has four straight T5s.
Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing (RFK) is running well. Chris Buescher scored his first stage win last week and has finished with a T10 in four of his last five races (not including the All-Star Race). He’s a great leverage play for your NASCAR DFS lineups this weekend.
Driver Cs | Fast Thoughts
Ryan Preece has been better than advertised at shorter flat tracks this season (12th at Phoenix and 18th at Richmond). Other than that, in this tier, I’m really only interested in rolling the dice on Corey Lajoie this week in the No. 9 car. Lajoie has averaged 32.1 NASCAR DFS points per game and should show up in the best equipment of his career.
Driver Ds | Fast Thoughts
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has impressed all season and is still just $6,400 in pricing. A.J. Allmendinger finished 10th at Gateway last season. Carson Hocevar takes over Lajoie’s No. 7 car. He has only raced three times in the Xfinity Series but finished with a T10 twice.
Driver Fs | Fast Thoughts
Austin Dillon and Austin Cindric are still underperforming and overpriced. I rather throw a dart on the likes of JJ Yeley, who mans the No. 51 car this week and is averaging 23.4 NASCAR DFS points per race.
