The NASCAR Cup series heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the second time this season. The green flag drops on the Quaker State 400 on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Before building any DFS NASCAR lineups on sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings, it is essential to review Scott Engel's best picks for the Quaker State 400.
Engel is an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association's Hall of Fame and is a two-time finalist for the FSWA Racing Writer of the Year award. He is a longtime Fantasy NASCAR analyst who has appeared on ESPN.com, Bleacher Report, the New York Daily News and SiriusXM NASCAR and Fantasy Sports Radio to break down the races from DFS perspectives. Engel targeted both recent Pocono weekend winners Alex Bowman and Kyle Busch as prime plays. He also correctly pinpointed Charlotte winner Kyle Larson as one of his top lineup selections in late May. In previous weeks, he highly recommended Talladega winner Brad Keselowski, and Martinsville and Darlington winner Martin Truex Jr. in both events.
Engel determines his preferred selections by using Loop Data, which are advanced statistics that are electronically recorded by NASCAR to accurately illustrate how drivers perform. Loop Data stats are very useful in DFS NASCAR to tell us which drivers truly will perform the best at particular tracks. They determine how a driver actually fares without the negative factors of crashes, car issues and pit problems. Last season, two SportsLine subscribers won DFS NASCAR tournaments in the same week using Scott's picks
For NASCAR in the Quaker State 400, Engel is again targeting Kyle Busch as one of his favorite drivers. The advanced statistics confirm that Busch will be a superb pick. The Loop Data stats demonstrate why Busch is one of the top choices at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is also a great site for Tyler Reddick to perform at his best levels for DFS purposes. Engel provides the important data that supports Reddick as a key lineup selection.
Engel is also strongly recommending a quality bargain play at Atlanta Motor Speedway who can provide a superb DFS return on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top DFS targets for the Quaker State 400 350 before you set your lineups.
