Drydene 400: DFS NASCAR Lineup Sleepers And Drivers To Avoid

The second trip to The Monster Mile is here as NASCAR heads into the second round of the playoffs. Last Sunday at the ROVAL, Chase Elliott pulled off the ultimate power move by winning the race after wrecking his car into the tire barrier on a restart while leading. For all you kids out there, this serves as an important reminder that nothing is impossible (also he has the most kick-ass celebration of the year thus far).

The four drivers who were eliminated this past Sunday include Erik Jones, Aric Almirola, Ryan Newman, and Kurt Busch. I wouldn't count on much from Almirola and Busch as the season continues, but Jones and Newman still have some good fantasy days ahead. For Jones, those days could start on Sunday.

What We Learned At The ROVAL

  • Never Give Up - Chase Elliott
  • Alex Bowman might be the new bad boy of NASCAR?
  • Kyle Busch doesn't care about your fantasy lineups
  • Bubba Wallace is entertaining AF when he's mad


DFS Lineup Sleepers - Bank of America ROVAL 400

Erik Jones

Cheat master Jones could do some damage this Sunday in your fantasy lineups. In all seriousness, Jones is looking for some redemption from the last few races since his win in Darlington. At Dover, Jones puts up an average of 36 FPTS, and increased his speed between both practices on Friday.

Alex Bowman

Bowman is now (in my opinion) the new up an coming bad boy of racing. I don't know when the full process will take effect, but he's quick on his way to stirring the pot after a hectic past two weeks. In Friday's first practice, Bowman placed a Top 5 finish with a speed of 161.067 which is a good sign of a repeat run from earlier in the season at this track.

Daniel Suarez

Suarez is holding on for dear life trying to claim his first win in the NASCAR Cup Series, but unfortunately, I don't think it can happen this Sunday (or even this year). What I am certain of is the 43.5 FPTS this guy puts up at this track. Look for Suarez to post at least a Top 10 finish this Sunday.

Paul Menard

Menard is getting ready to hang up the racing suit, and as much as he would love to get one more victory in the series, it probably won't be here. Menard has a tough time on the concrete track, only averaging 15 FPTS since 2017. Don't put your faith in the beard this Sunday.

Landon Cassill

Cassill is a popular low-cost driver to fill the gaps some weeks, but leave him out at The Monster Mile. Cassill has only made it inside the Top 30 twice since 2016, and it was barely a Top 30 finishing both those times in 29th. Cassill also only averages 11 FPTS at this track.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

As Stenhouse Jr. still awaits a new ride for 2020, and I'm not feeling a standout performance to help with it this weekend at Dover. Stenhouse Jr. did have a seventh-place finish in the second practice on Friday, but don't let these smooth moves fool you. Stenhouse Jr has only averaged 16 FPTS at this track since 2017.
