Fantasy Supercross Preview Week Two: San Diego

Fantasy Supercross

Wow! Week one of the Fantasy Supercross season, presented by RMFantasySX, was amazing! Crashes, bumps, passes, and fights! Yes fights! What a way to start the season. ‘El Hombre’ Jason Anderson showed his 2nd place finish in A1 last year was no fluke, winning with relative ease. Of course Ryan Dungey podium’d, continuing where he left off last year  with a solid, yet hard fought, 2nd place finish. Cole Seely, Eli Tomac, and Ken Roczen rounded out the Top-5. Bubba Stewart suffered a pretty serious crash and subsequent concussion has him listed as questionable for week two. I didn’t do too bad with my picks, getting Dungey’s 2nd place correct while also landing points for having Roczen and Tomac in my Top-5. So I’m currently 8,886th out of 52,550 players. Not a bad start but certainly room for improvement.

Contenders:

Trey Canard: Canard has two other Top-10 finishes in San Diego and absolutely dominated last year’s race. He is my clear favorite for this week.

Ryan Dungey: He’s never finished worse than 6th in San Diego, culminating in a 3rd  place finish last year.

Ken Roczen: Roczen has a 3rd and a 2nd in two career San Diego starts.

Chad Reed: The Aussie has 6 career podiums in San Diego, including 3 wins.

Davi Millsaps: Millsaps looked good last week on the BTO KTM, and he has finished in the Top-10 in every career start in San Diego, with the exception of last year’s fluke season.

Eli Tomac: Tomac had a 5th place finish last year on his old Honda, and his Factory Kawasaki looked exceptionally fast last week.

Cole Seely and Jason Anderson: Cole had a 6th place finish last year in San Diego and looked great last week. El Hombre finished 10th last year and after last week, it’s hard to deny him, or Seely for that matter, a spot in the championship race.

My Picks:

1st: Trey Canard

2nd: Ryan Dungey

3rd: Eli Tomac

4th: Ken Roczen

5th: Cole Seely

Wild Card 12th place: Chad Reed

Last year I had all five riders correct for the San Diego race, but I had them all in the wrong order! Thanks to RMFantasySX for giving us some points for Top-5’s this year!
