Fantasy Live Picks for Indianapolis (Updated)

Facebooktwitter

The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday. Sometimes when you sit back and give your team a second look you come up with another lineup that should score well. That is what happened this morning.

It is no secret that I get scared every time I use Danica Patrick in my lineup. Last week she paid off with a 13th place finish and the 9th most points in Fantasy Live. Am I playing with fire by using her again? Indianapolis is one of her better tracks and she does have good memories of running in the top 10 in the Indianapolis 500.

I have two teams I play each week in Fantasy Live. 90% of the time I play the same lineup in each league. This week I am using different lineups. I will use the lineup I posted Saturday night in my Fantasy Racing Tips League (Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Danica Patrick and David Ragan).

In my Fantasy NASCAR Sportswriter’s League (The best of the best are in this league), I am using a slightly different combination of drivers. AJ Allmendinger starts 40th and should move up 15 positions in the race. He has less risk than Danica Patrick so I will use the No. 47 over the No. 10 car. That means I need to switch out David Ragan as well. Matt Dibenedetto looked to have similar speed as Ragan so I will use him in the race. My new lineup will be Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, AJ Allmendinger and Matt Dibenedetto.

 

Here are my picks for the Brickyard 400…

Martin Truex Jr. $28.25 (Starts 6th)

Kyle Larson $28.00 (Starts 25th)

Kyle Busch $27.00 (Starts Pole)

Danica Patrick $9.25 (Starts 23rd)

David Ragan $7.50 (Starts 30th)

PICK TO WIN: Kyle Busch
