Yahoo / Fantasy Live / Fox: Quick Picks

The AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway is fast approaching, but before the green flag waves at "The Monster Mile," it is time to try to make some money at DraftKings playing DFS NASCAR.

With 400 laps on tap for Sunday's race, the laps led and fastest laps run categories need to be your main focus. Passing is difficult at Dover, so it is common for one driver to get out front and stay there for long stretches. In fact, one driver routinely leads more than 150 laps.

Unfortunately, many of the top candidates to lead the most laps this weekend carry enormous salaries, so it is going to be tough to own more than one high-priced driver and still field a competitive all-around lineup. You can probably get away with owning two studs and four mediocre sleepers in a cash game, provided your two studs perform as expected, but in a tournament setting, you are probably going to have to pick one driver to build around.

Remember to get your lineups finalized and locked in, and make sure to follow along with the action Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET on FS1.

Building Blocks

Kyle Busch ($10,500)

He has been red hot heading into the AAA 400, piling up three wins and two second-place finishes in the last six races. Busch has also been stout at Dover over the years, winning twice and ranking third among active drivers in laps led at the track. Starting third, another dominant showing in the laps led and fastest laps run categories from the defending champ could be on tap.
