2017 Fantasy Supercross Week Two: San Diego

Fantasy Supercross

The 2017 Fantasy Supercross season came storming out of the gates in Anaheim this past Saturday! There were several guys who looked FAST; Marvin Musquin was the fastest qualifier, Ryan Dungey and Jason Anderson both worked their way through the pack for Top-5 finishes, and Ken Roczen absolutely dominated on his Honda. I managed to get four of the top five right, although not in the correct order, and Cole Seely nearly ran down Eli Tomac to give me all the guys in the Top-5. Now if I can get the order right we’ll be in business! This week the RMFantasySX riders head to San Diego for the first of two races in the Whale’s vagina. This week’s Wild Card is 11th place.

Contenders:

Ryan Dungey – Dungey swept the San Diego races last year, so it’s hard to deny him a spot atop your picks.

Cole Seely – Seely has finished 6th, 3rd, and 2nd in three career San Diego starts. He looked great last week despite a slow start, pushing Tomac until the end. He looks fast this year, and is clearly benefitting from Roczen pushing him as a teammate.

Fantasy Supercross

Can Ken Roczen make it two straight wins to start the 2017 Fantasy Supercross season?

 

Ken Roczen – Roczen has finished on the podium three times in four career San Diego starts, and looked damn good last week.

*Trey Canard – Trey has five Top-10 finishes in San Diego, including a win. I’ll try to update this on his shoulder injury he sustained in Anaheim that prevented him from racing in the Main Event to see if he will be racing this week. *UPDATE* Canard will miss this week’s race due to his shoulder injury he suffered in practice last week. 

Chad Reed – The Kurri Kurri, Australia native has seven podium finishes in the 450 era, including three wins and a second at SD1 last year. He also looked great last week, riding in the Top-10 until contact with Weston Peick caused damage to his bike.

Eli Tomac – Tomac has finished 5th, 4th, and 6th in his past three races in San Diego. He started strong last week before fading to a 5th place finish.

Davi Millsaps – Until the past two seasons, Millsaps had finished Top-10 in every San Diego race he had started. He looks rejuvenated on the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM, finishing in the Wild Card 7th spot last week.

Marvin Musquin – Musquin had Top-10 finishes in both of his San Diego races during his rookie campaign, and he looked real fast last week. There’s been talk that he has been the fastest KTM rider each practice. Obviously he’s learning from the current 3 time champ, so that helps.

Jason Anderson – Two Top-5’s last year, a generally fast rider, a spot in your picks…

Wild Card: 11th Place

Justin Brayton – Three straight 9-12 finishes in San Diego.

Jake Weimer – Three 9-12 finishes in the last four San Diego races.

Broc Tickle – Mr. Wild Card averages a 10th place finish in San Diego.

Josh Grant – Two 9-12 finishes in the past three San Diego races.

Christophe Pourcel – A 13th place finish last year.

My Picks:

1st: Ryan Dungey

2nd: Ken Roczen

3rd: Jason Anderson

4th: Marvin Musquin

5th: Cole Seely

11th: Justin Brayton
