Teenage Mutant Ninja 400

We move on to Chicagoland this week, even though our race sponsor gives us the feel of New York City. It won’t be all about pizza and karate today as driver’s are still trying to fight their way to the top of the standings. Last years winner, Denny Hamlin put together a solid run to find victory lane.  This week I will provide 5 top end daily fantasy NASCAR plays and 5 value plays. One Loose Lug Nut is presented by UTV Family. Check them out at or on twitter @utvfamily they are giving away a 2016 Polaris Rzr Turbo.

Daily Fantasy NASCAR Picks

Top End Picks

1. Kyle Busch

Busch starts on the pole and has a 106 driver rating at Chicagoland. I am not going to sit here and say he could lead every lap, but he could lead every lap.

2. Jimmie Johnson

Johnson starts in the 8th spot and has the highest driver rating among active drivers. He has a good chance to pull down some place differential points and could even lead laps near the end of the race.

3. Matt Kenseth

Fantasy just got a whole lot better thanks to Monkey Knife Fight. With fast-paced games like Rapid Fire and Either/Or, it’s never been easier to play fantasy and win. New to MKF? Get Exclusive $100 Deposit Match + Free $5 Game

Kenseth starts a spot above Johnson, but doesn’t have quite the driver rating at 103. He could still work his way up to the front and find himself in victory lane.

4. Kevin Harvick

Harvick is Harvick. He starts in 4th and should stay up front with the chance to lead some laps.

5. Brad Keselowski

Another guy who could put up dominator points this week. BK will start 2nd and if he can work past Kyle Busch he could easily rack up the points.


Value Picks

1. Tony Stewart

Stewart starts in the 11th spot, but has had a lot of success at Chicagoland. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him maintain his position and maybe even post up a top 10.

2. Danica Patrick

Danica starts in the 25th spot, but could easily work her way up to a top 20 finish. She has been on fire as of late and should put up some nice place differential points.

3. David Ragan

Ragan will start 32nd and if last year is any precursor could find the top 20. He put up a lot of place differential points last year and will look to do the same this week.

4. Casey Mears

Mears is a safe place differential play and one that could find the top 20. I definitely have him in cash game lines.

5. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 

It pains me to use Ricky, but he has been hot and could remain hot today.
