AdventHealth 400 DFS: DraftKings, FanDuel NASCAR Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks

Chase Elliott - NASCAR DFS Picks, Betting Picks, Daily Fantasy NASCAR

The NASCAR Cup Series makes the first of its two 2024 visits to Kansas Speedway on Sunday for the AdventHealth 400. Last year, Denny Hamlin and Tyler Reddick earned victories at this track.

Last week, Hamlin led 136 laps on his way to a win at Dover. The victory has moved Hamlin to the fourth spot in the regular season point standings, 49 points behind leader Kyle Larson. Martin Truex Jr. sits second, while Chase Elliott is third in points.

Below are my NASCAR DFS lineup picks for the AdventHealth 400 on DraftKings and FanDuel this week. This slate locks on 5/5/2024 at 2:09 p.m. EST. If you have any questions or want to talk about NASCAR, you can find me on Twitter at @juscarts.

William Byron

Starts 36th - DK: $10,500, FD: $12,500

Let's get the chalk play out of the way to start things because have to talk about it. William Byron is a must-play in Cash games, though you're fine to go a little light on him in GPPs since he'll likely be the most rostered driver in the field.

Byron was the second-fastest driver in practice behind only Tyler Reddick, but his chance at a potential pole award went out the window when he made contact with the wall during qualifying. That's doomed Byron to a 36th-place starting spot.

Byron has three wins so far this season and seven top 10s with an average finish of 12.1. That alone should showcase how much place differential upside the No. 24 car has, but if you need another reason, then it can be that Byron was third in this race last season.

 

Chase Elliott

Starts Ninth - DK: $9,800, FD: $11,500

After a down year in 2023, Chase Elliott is back in title contention in 2024. He has one win and four top-five finishes while currently sitting third in the overall point standings.

Elliott should be a contender for the win on Sunday, as this is one of his better tracks. Even when he was struggling last season, Elliott managed to turn in one of his best races in the fall race, leading 47 laps and finishing sixth. He's won here once and also has two other second-place finishes. Overall, he's led 40-plus laps five times at Kansas.

 

Bubba Wallace

Starts 23rd - DK: $9,500, FD: $10,000

After posting the third-fastest lap in practice, Bubba Wallace couldn't follow that up with a top qualifying result and will start Sunday's race from the 23rd position. That might impede his shot of winning this race, but it also makes Wallace one of the best place differential options in this field.

Wallace recorded one of his two Cup Series victories at this track, leading 58 laps to win here in 2022. Last year, he was fourth in this race, leading nine laps. He also led three laps in the fall race, but he couldn't back that up with a good finish as he finished 32nd after an accident during the second stage of the race.

Brad Keselowski

Starts 30th - DK: $7,700, FD: $7,800

I really love the place differential upside with Brad Keselowski in the No. 6 car this weekend, as he'll fire off from way back in the 30th position on Sunday afternoon.

Brad K had four top-five finishes already this season, though he also has three DNFs, which has him mired back at 16th in points. Still, his finishes at the intermediate tracks this year have me optimistic about Sunday's race, as he was second at Texas and 13th at Vegas.

As far as his Kansas performances, Keselowski has two wins here. He was ninth in the fall race last year, leading 23 laps along the way. He's been top 20 in three of his four Kansas races since moving to RFK Racing.

 

John Hunter Nemechek

Starts 29th - DK: $6,000, FD: $4,800

This one's risky, but this is a race where I really don't love the value options, so we've got to take some risks.

John Hunter Nemechek has really struggled so far this season, posting just two top 10s in his first season with Legacy Motor Club. However, he showed some improvement at Dover last week, starting 34th and managing to move up 14 spots by the end of the race.

JHN has two wins here in the Xfinity Series, including a dominant win here last year as he led 154 of the 200 laps. He also has a win here in the Truck Series. While there's pretty much no shot he gets a Cup Series win here on Sunday, I think he can potentially finish +15 or so in place differential.

 

Daniel Hemric

Starts 33rd - DK: $5,500, FD: $3,500

Daniel Hemric's return to the Cup Series has been uneven. Through the first nine races of the season, his best finish was 16th, but the No. 31 car has put something together over the last two weeks. His ninth-place finish at Talladega doesn't mean much since that's a superspeedway, but last week's ninth-place run at Dover was impressive. Hemric starts 33rd, so there's definitely some place differential upside here for one of the cheapest drivers in the field.
