The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series stops at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday for the Geico 500. The green flag drops at 2:00 pm. ET.
Before building any DFS NASCAR lineups on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings, it is essential to review Scott Engel's best picks for the Geico 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. He also cited Martinsville winner Martin Truex Jr. as his top choice two weeks ago.
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 Talladega Superspeedway, Engel is targeting Joey Logano as one of his favorite choices. The advanced statistics show that Logano will be a superb pick. The Loop Data stats demonstrate why Loganoi is one of the prime selections at Talladega Superspeedway. This is also a great site for Ryan Newman to perform at his best levels for DFS purposes. Engel provides the important data that supports Newman as a key lineup selection.
Engel is also strongly recommending a quality bargain play at Talladega Superspeedway who can provide a solid DFS return on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top DFS targets for the Geico 500 before you set your lineups.
