Citizen Soldier 400
Yahoo: Top 30 Drivers
Yahoo / Fantasy Live / Fox: Quick Picks
It has a wet weekend at Dover International Speedway, and all the rain isn't going to make setting DFS NASCAR lineups for Sunday's Citizen Soldier 400 any easier.
Qualifying was washed out, setting the field by owner points and ensuring that there wouldn't be any big names starting deeper in the field. As a result, it is going to be tougher to identify the drivers who will be the biggest movers and score the most points in the place differential category.
Rain also washed out part of the second practice session and all of Happy Hour, making it tough to tell which big names have the cars to beat and which mid-pack drivers will be the top sleepers.
The 400-lap race further complicates matters because hitting on the driver who leads the most laps is a must with so many points available in the laps led and fastest laps run categories. With that in mind, you may want to pay up for at least a couple of studs to increase your chances of picking the dominant driver.
Check out one last look at my top picks and potential sleepers for Sunday's Citizen Soldier 400, and make sure to get your DFS NASCAR lineups locked in.
Kevin Harvick ($10,900)
With rain disrupting track activities all weekend, it isn’t a bad idea to stick with the driver that has been unstoppable at Dover the last couple of years. Harvick has led the most laps in three of his five starts here with Stewart-Haas Racing, leading 511 more laps than any other driver in that stretch. He led 355 laps in a win here last fall, so there is no denying his enormous ceiling.
Martin Truex Jr. ($10,500)
He had one of the best cars in the May race at Dover, and despite being involved in a late wreck, he still rallied for a top 10. More importantly, he has been the best driver on the track the last few weeks, either winning or leading the most laps in each of the last four races. With Truex starting on the front row and already locked into the next round of the Chase, he can focus solely on delivering another dominating performance.
