Updated Fantasy Live Picks for Talladega


Sometimes you here something right before the race and it causes you to make a change to your fantasy lineup. Today is one of those days.

I was listening to an interview with Ryan Blaney on Sirius XM NASCAR radio this morning. Blaney was asked what he thinks of his chances of winning today. Blaney responded, “Well…. I always come to the track with the expectations of winning but it is hard to feel that way at this track. Honestly, I hate this type of racing. I have a good habbit of finding the wrecks and no matter what I do I cannot avoid them. I will try to win today but I expect to wreck. That is just how my career has gone at this track.”

Well that does not sound to positive. I am changing Ryan Blaney for Kurt Busch in my Fantasy Live lineup.

Here is my new lineup…

Brad Keselowski (6)

Kurt Busch (8)

Clint Bowyer (7)

Aric Almirola (7)
