2018 Fantasy Supercross Week One: Anaheim

Fantasy Supercross

The 2018 Fantasy Supercross season is upon us! Our friends over at RMFantasySX are back at it again with over $100,000 worth of prizes on the line! The best part? Once again the league is FREE! That’s right, it doesn’t cost you a dime to play, yet you can win prizes each week and the Top-10 season finishers once again win HUGE prizes! That is, those of you in 2nd to 10th place, because this is my year to win it all. Just saying. As I discussed in my season preview, defending champ Ryan Dungey, as well as perennial contender Trey Canard, both retired following the 2017 season, leaving the 2018 chase wide open! With only one former champion left racing(Chad Reed), it’s more than likely(no offense, Chad) we will see someone win their first championship this year. I cannot wait for the action to start at A1!

Contenders:

Ken Roczen – Roczen stole the title of “King of Anaheim” from Chad Reed roughly four years ago. Roczen has three A1 wins in four starts and has five overall Anaheim wins already in his young career.

Eli Tomac – Although a legitimate championship contender, Tomac has never finished on the podium at A1. In fact, his best finish in Anaheim overall is a 3rd place in 2015.

Marvin Musquin – Marvin has a podium finish(3rd) at A1 and two podiums at Anaheim overall.

Jason Anderson – Anderson does much better at A1 than A2, with a win, a 2nd, and a 4th versus a 5th, 7th, and a 9th.

Cole Seely – Seely has three podiums and three 6th place finishes in Anaheim.

Blake Baggett – Anaheim has not been kind to Blake, with a best finish of 7th. I’m willing to chalk that up to slower bikes and learning a new bike/team last year.

Broc Tickle – Tickle(hehe) has been solid, but unspectacular in Anaheim. But Broc has never been on a bike/team this good. He’s essentially riding Ryan Dungey’s championship winning bike from last year. I’ll reserve judgment until I see a few races.

Cooper Webb – Webb had a 10th at A1 and a 4th at A2 his rookie year last year.

Justin Brayton – Justin has five Top-10’s at A1 and thirteen Top-10’s at Anaheim overall.

Chad Reed – Reed hasn’t won at A1 in the past 8 years, but he does have six Top-10’s in that span, including two podiums.

Justin Barcia – Bam Bam has three Top-10’s at A1 and seven Top-10’s at Anaheim overall. He will be filling in for Davi Millsaps for the first six weeks of the season.

My Picks:

1st: Ken Roczen

2nd: Jason Anderson

3rd: Marvin Musquin

4th: Blake Baggett

5th: Eli Tomac

Wild Card 7th: Broc Tickle
