NASCAR Truck Series: DraftKings DFS Lineup Picks for Charlotte NC Education Lottery 200 (5/27/22)

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads to Charlotte this week as part of a jam-packed weekend of NASCAR action.

Last week, Stewart Friesen won his first race of the season at Texas, which should get him into the postseason as he sits fourth in points. John Hunter Nemechek leads Ben Rhodes at the top of the points standings by four points.

Here at RotoBaller, we want to help you make informed decisions about your DFS lineups, which is why I'll be breaking down the slates for the Truck Series. Let's look at some NASCAR Truck Series DFS lineup picks for the NC Education Lottery 200 on DraftKings. Be sure to also check out our NASCAR Premium Tools for Truck Series including our DFS Lineup Optimizer and powerful Research Station. This slate locks on 5/27/2022 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Post-Qualifying Update

Check back after qualifying for some updates on this slate.


How The Top-Priced Drivers Have Done At Charlotte

Five drivers are priced at $10,000 or more:

Kyle Busch ($14,400): Kyle Busch is pricy. $14,400 is a lot of salary space to devote to one driver, and playing him means you'll need to hit the bargain basement for a good chunk of your lineup. Busch is someone who can go out and dominate a race, but his 51.2 fantasy points per race this year is just 0.1 more than Zane Smith. Busch has finished third in each of his races this year, but never posted the kind of dominant numbers that we're used to seeing when he dips down. Sure, he could post those numbers on Friday, but I'm really not sure how much I want to bet on that. (Though I will place actual bets on it.)

John Hunter Nemechek ($11,500): Nemechek won here last year, leading 71 of the 134 laps on his way to the victory. Sure, there was no Kyle Busch in that race, but a KBM truck has outrun Busch in two of his three starts this season. JHN should be considered at least the co-favorite here pre-qualifying.

Zane Smith ($10,800):¬†Smith has run here twice, with top 10s both times. He led double-digit laps in both races. With three wins already this year‚ÄĒincluding a dominant win at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway, where he led 108 laps‚ÄĒSmith should be considered a threat to win here. My concern from a fantasy angle is he has just one top five this year that wasn't a win, so he could end up just running a decent race where he lands in eighth but loses too many place differential points to be in winning lineups.

Ross Chastain ($10,400): Another start for Chastain in the 41 this week. He qualified 14th and finished 12th last week at Texas in this truck. Feels overpriced. Chastain is a great driver, but this equipment has limitations on faster tracks like Charlotte.

Chandler Smith ($10,100): Smith was sixth in his lone Truck Series start here. Overall, his average finish at tracks between one and two miles is 13.6, which is fine. He won at Vegas earlier this year and was fourth at Kansas and eighth at Texas. He's led just three laps over the last six races and feels like someone I'll fade unless he qualifies outside the top 10.

Mid-Price NASCAR DFS Options

Here are some drivers to keep an eye on between $7,000 and $10,000.

Ryan Preece ($9,300): Preece led 27 laps and posted 16 fastest laps at Texas last week. He's scored at least 40 fantasy points in each of his starts this season. he won at the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway last year. Plenty of reason to play him over some of the more expensive drivers and still get a really strong result.

Ty Majeski ($8,300): Majeski finished fifth last week...yet his DFS price went down? Okay. Sure. Majeski has posted three top fives in a row and two came at these 1.5-mile tracks. Majeski is going to break through and win one of these at some point. It probably won't be in this race because of the Kyle Busch factor, but I still expect a strong run from the 66 truck.

Matt DiBenedetto ($8,100): Two top 10s in a row for this 25 truck, both on comparable tracks to Texas. And his other top 10s this year? Daytona (which is kind of a crapshoot) and Vegas, which is another of these cookie cutters. This team has found speed on intermediate tracks, but he's also qualified outside the top 10 at each of them too, leaving room for some place differential upside. Hopefully that trend continues this week.


Potential NASCAR DFS Sleeper Picks

Let's look at some potential plays for under $7,000.

Tate Fogleman ($6,900): Because we've just been at two similar tracks, I'm leaning heavily on the last two weeks when figuring out my value plays. Fogelman started 35th at Kansas and finished 20th, then started 29th at Texas and finished 22nd. Poor qualifying runs mixed with improvement on race day is a good recipe for a solid DFS day.

Hailee Deegan ($6,500): Deegan has been 17th in each of the past two races. The issue was that she qualified well both times, so she didn't deliver the kind of fantasy days you want to see from someone in your lineup. I'm hoping Deegan gets back to her old ways of starting 25th or worse, which she had done in four of the five races before Kansas. If that happens, then I'll likely sprinkle her into a lot of lineups.

Jesse Little ($5,900): This isn't a great value slate. Little was 19th at Texas and 24th at Kansas, solid results for this truck. But he started 22nd both times, limiting the place differential upside. I'll like him if he starts 25th or worse.
