DFS NASCAR Advanced Stats for DraftKings, FanDuel: Ambetter Health 400 Lineup Picks

My weekly NASCAR “By the DFS Numbers” Race Previews include a combination of statistical markers from Loop Data reports and the RotoBaller NASCAR Cup Series Research Station. Loop Data, which are the advanced statistics that are electronically recorded by NASCAR to accurately illustrate how drivers truly perform, are featured as highly relevant indicators.

Loop Data stats are useful in DFS NASCAR in revealing which drivers have performed the best at certain tracks. They determine how a driver performs without the negative factors of crashes, car issues, and pit problems.

The NASCAR Research Station is one of our most important features in the RotoBaller NASCAR Season Pass package. It is a deluxe suite of advanced NASCAR statistics that can help you identify the top drivers and value plays for ideal lineup constructions every week. It includes historical, recent, and projected stats, along with Loop Data.

Ambetter Health 400 Loop Data And Research Station Overview

If you want to work on your fantasy NASCAR setup with all the best statistical tools, the Research Station is your numerical garage for DraftKings and FanDuel lineup building. Get access to the Research Station with the RotoBaller NASCAR Season Pass. Enter promo code KING at checkout for an additional discount. We also have Research Stations for the Xfinity and Truck Series.

Drivers are listed in order of preference for lineup usage based on their pricing tiers. All Loop Data stats cover the last four events at Atlanta Motor Speedway unless otherwise noted. We use DraftKings prices as a basis, but most of what is recommended should also be applied to FanDuel lineup builds. Selected Research Station indicators are highlighted in italics.


Ambetter Health 400: By The DFS Numbers

Joey Logano: Third in Driver Rating in the last four Atlanta events (100.4). Second in Laps Led (163). Third in Average Running Position (10.7). Highest Implied Odds To Win (6.9 percent).

William Byron: First in Laps Led (171). Second in Green Flag Speed (181.398). Has Finished in the Top 3 in three of his last four superspeedway starts. Leads in Driver Rating Gained vs. Similar Drivers (27.5). First in Fantasy Points Gained vs. Similar Drivers (55.9).

Ryan Blaney: All-time second-best Driver Rating among active drivers (98.0). Best DR over the past four races at Atlanta (108.0). First in Average Running Position (7.4).

Chase Elliott: Second in DR in the last four Atlanta races (104.7). Second in ARP (10.1). Second-highest implied Odds To Win (6.3 percent). Projected to score the most Fantasy Points (49.70). Elliott starts 28th and will be a prime Place Differential target.

Denny Hamlin: Leads in Quality Passes (passes of cars in the Top 15 while Under Green Flag Conditions, 650). Second in Average Position vs. Actual Finish (4.7).

Christopher Bell: Third in Laps Led (125) and Green Flag Passes (852). First in Average Position vs. Actual Finish (4.8). Bell starts 22nd and is a viable Place Differential option.


Key stats for Atlanta on the RotoBaller Research Station. 

Kyle Busch: Has finished in the Top 7 in his three of his last five superspeedway starts.

Ross Chastain: Second in Fastest Laps Run (35). His 22 percent Implied Odds to Finish in the Top 5 are the best of any driver below $9000. Second in Fantasy Points Gained vs. Similar Drivers (28.8).

Martin Truex Jr.: Third-best all-time Driver Rating (95.1). Third-Fastest on Restarts.

Erik Jones: Leads in Green Flag Passes (946). Projected to score the second-most Fantasy Points (46.15). Jones is a very good and apparent PD play, as he starts from the 37th spot.

Alex Bowman: Second in Quality Passes (572). Has finished in the Top 6 in two of his last three superspeedway starts.

Tyler Reddick: Fifth in Fantasy Points Gained vs. Similar Drivers (25.3).

Corey LaJoie: His 30 percent Implied Odds of Finishing in the Top 10 are the second-best of any driver priced at $7000 or below.  Projected to score 44.65 Fantasy Points, the most of any driver below $6800. Has finished in the top 10 in his last three superspeedway starts. Second in Driver Rating Gained vs. Similar Drivers (22.7). Third in Fantasy Points Gained vs. Similar Drivers (27.2). LaJoie will be a top bargain play from a starting position of 32nd.

Austin Cindric: His 31 percent Implied Odds of Finishing in the Top 10 are the best of any driver priced at $7000 or below.

Daniel Suarez: Fourth in Fantasy Points Gained vs. Similar Drivers (25.7).

John Hunter Nemechek: Projected To Score 37.15 Fantasy Points, the most of any driver below $6500. He is a worthy PD option as a bargain play, as Nemechek starts 34th.

Chase Briscoe: Leads in Fastest Laps Run (42).  

Josh Berry: Leads in Green Flag Speed (181.425).

Justin Haley: First Among Closers (4.5 Average Spots Gained in the final 10 percent of the last four races at Atlanta). Third in Fastest Laps Run (33). Second in Green Flag Passes (921). Haley is an obvious salary saver at $5300. He can potentially earn a decent finish from a starting position of 31st.
