Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 DFS: DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy NASCAR Lineup Picks

The NASCAR party people are headed north for a race at one of the tougher one-mile tracks on the schedule. When you think "NASCAR parties" the first place that usually comes to mind is Talladega, but New Hampshire Motor Speedway is right there with it. New England just likes to do things big, and this track is a banger like at all the other New England sporting events.

This track is flat as a pancake and can make passing a difficult task, but we've seen that things have changed with common narratives after the introduction of the new package. We really don't know what to expect just yet, but something you can bet on is that the restarts should be intense due to the lack of banking and grip.

Since 2016, Martin Truex Jr. has been the best driver to use in DFS. The Bass Pro wheel gripper has averaged about 84 FPTS over three years, but has failed to take the checkered flag (and I don't see it happening this time around either). One wow factor from Friday's practice was Matt DiBenedetto qualifying in P7, and with that comes the added confidence in my decision to park him this weekend (Check out my Sleepers And Drivers To Avoid article).


DFS Lineup Picks - DraftKings, FanDuel

Chase Elliott #9 (DraftKings $10,000 | FanDuel $10,700)

Elliott has taken a back seat to his teammates at Hendrick Motorsports since his victory in Talladega and that may come to a close this weekend (I feel that energy). In years past, Elliott has been pretty consistent with the way he runs in New Hampshire, and consistency is key.

In Friday's practice, Elliott finished first with a speed of 137.086 and qualified in 12th place. The average production we see out of Elliott is around 25 FPTS, but expect to see an uptick this Sunday.


Kevin Harvick #4 (DraftKings $11,100 | FanDuel $12,500 )

It's that time to bite your fingernails again because Harvick is back in my sights. The last time I talked about Harvick he placed sixth after starting 23rd in Sonoma, but New Hampshire ain't no road course.

Since 2015, Harvick has finished inside the Top 5 when he qualifies behind P10 (interesting stat). This Sunday Harvick starts in P14, which is the same position he started in last July's race when he secured the victory.


Denny Hamlin #11 (DraftKings $9,700 | FanDuel $11,500)

The number 11 FedEx Toyota Camry had an unexpected delivery to the wall at Friday's practice. Hamlin will be finishing the race weekend with a backup car, and I don't think anyone should panic about the situation.

Hamlin may not have had the best day in practice, but when he's starting a race in P23 I want all the smoke. Hamlin averages around 35 FPTS at this track and even if he doesn't win the race, he will be a go-to driver for your DFS lineups this week.


Kyle Larson #42 (DraftKings $9,400 | FanDuel $10,400)

I know you're probably thinking "Dang when was the last time Chase wrote about Larson?" Let's just say it's been a minute, and I'm excited about the guy this weekend.

Larson has finished with positive placement at this track since 2017 and showed decent speed in Friday's practice (126.296). One big reason to give Larson a play on Sunday is that he averages around 55 FPTS in New Hampshire.
