The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Talladega Superspeedway this week. The new scoring format for the Fantasy Live game will provide different strategies for this race.
Selecting drivers who start in the back with a good chance to score position differential points is the most important strategy to use this week. Fantasy players cannot completely ignore the Stage points though. Selecting drivers who start outside the top 15 who I think will quickly move into the top 10 and try to stay there the entire race will be my strategy this week. This will give my team an opportunity to score position differential points and Stage points.
Here are my picks for the GEICO 500…
Kyle Larson $27.75 (Starts 21st)
Jimmie Johnson $26.75 (Starts 30th)
Clint Bowyer $20.00 (Starts 17th)
Austin Dillon $20.25 (Starts 18th)
Cole Whitt $5.25 (Starts 38th)
PICK TO WIN: Brad Keselowski
Good luck this week!
