There is a crucial NASCAR Cup playoff race ahead at Kansas Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 2:30 pm ET. Before assembling your NASCAR DFS lineups on FanDuel or DraftKings, you must review Scott Engel's top picks and key strategies for Kansas, as the competition will be hot when the Round of Eight begins.
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, SiriusXM NASCAR and Fantasy Sports Radio to break down the races from DFS perspectives.
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 NASCAR DFS 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. Two SportsLine subscribers won NASCAR DFS tournaments in the same week recently using Engel's picks.
For NASCAR at Kansas Speedway, Engel is looking at Erik Jones as one of the best choices. The advanced statistics suggest Jones is a top pick who will challenge the playoff contenders. You can also expect a strong showing from Kurt Busch. Engel shares numbers that indicate Busch could push for his first-ever win at the site and his second playoff victory of the season.
Engel is also recommending a strong value play for Place Differential points on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top NASCAR DFS targets for Kansas before you set your lineups.
