Before building your DFS NASCAR lineups on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings, it is essential to review Scott Engel's best picks for the Instacart 500. 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 correctly pinpointed Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell as one of his top recommended lineup targets so far this season.
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 at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, Engel is targeting Kyle Busch as one of his favorite choices. The advanced statistics show that Busch will be a superb pick. The Loop Data stats demonstrate why Busch is one of the prime selections at Phoenix Raceway. This is also a great site for Aric Almirola to perform well for DFS purposes. Engel provides the important data that supports Almirola as a key lineup selection.
Engel is also strongly recommending an all-time standout at Phoenix Raceway who is an essential lineup pick on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top DFS targets for the Instacart 500 before you set your lineups.
