NASCAR Xfinity Series: DraftKings DFS Lineup Picks for Texas SRS Distribution 250 (5/21/22)

The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Texas on Saturday for the SRS Distribution 250. A.J. Allmendinger currently leads the points standings by 25 points over Noah Gragson, with Ty Gibbs behind them in third.

The Series was off last week, with the most recent race being on May 7th when Justin Allgaier won at Darlington. JRM drivers have now won three races in a row, with a different one winning each time. Can either Sam Mayer or William Byron make it four different JRM winners in four races?

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 Xfinity Series. Let's look at some NASCAR Xfinity DFS lineup picks for the SRS Distribution 250 on DraftKings. Be sure to also check out our NASCAR Premium Tools for Xfinity Series including our DFS Lineup Optimizer and powerful Research Station. This slate locks on 5/21/22 at 1:47 p.m. ET.


Xfinity DFS Picks - DraftKings

Be sure to also check out all of our other weekly NASCAR DFS articles and analysis to help you set your optimal DFS lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel.


William Byron ($11,000) - Starting 15th

The Cup Series star dips down into Xfinity this week for the first time in 2022. He was a trendy pick to dominate this one before qualifying, but ended up turning in a lap that put him just 15th.

I expect Byron to m0ve up through the field in this one, with the starting spot taking away some laps led upside but introducing some place differential upside.

Byron was second here in the Cup Series last year, leading 55 laps. In Xfinity, he has two top 10s in two starts, both back in 2017 and both featuring Byron leading 17 laps.

Noah Gragson ($10,500) - Starting 1st

Gragson is my pick to win this race. JRM cars have been fast lately. Gragson should be positioned to lead a lot of early laps. He's had top 10s in his last three Texas races, including a pair of top fives. He was third here in the last race at this track.

Also notable: Gragson led 52 laps and finished second at Vegas. So, we've seen him run well on an intermediate track this year already.

(Gragson is at +400 to win this race. It's not a bet that will pay a lot, but it's one I'd feel good about taking.)

Landon Cassill ($8,300) - Starting 38th

There are some place differential plays that I really love on this slate. I've chosen not to write about one of them, Jeffrey Earnhardt, just because it's tough to fit all the mid-priced PD guys in a lineup with each other and still have room for some heavy hitters.

Cassill starts 38th. His average finish this season is 13.0, with three top fives and six top 10s. One of those top 10s came at Vegas, where he finished sixth. Cassill isn't blowing anyone away at Kaulig, but he's quietly been better than Jeb Burton was in this car last season.

Anthony Alfredo ($7,600) - Starting 37th

Alfredo starts 37th in the Our 23 car. His average finish this season is 14.3. That includes a top five and three top 10s. Unlike a lot of the drivers we're discussing, he didn't really impress at Vegas, where he finished 17th, but he did deliver a fifth at Fontana in this car, which is impressive and I think is at least a little notable when figuring out how to project him on a fairly fast track like Texas.

Also notable is that Alfredo is running well lately. He's finished 15th or better in six consecutive races—and if we extended that to 16th or better, it would be seven races.

Ryan Ellis ($6,700) - Starting 28th

The other Alpha Prime car, driven this week by Stefan Parsons, was 18th in qualifying. Ellis didn't show that kind of speed, but qualifying hasn't been his forte this year. Before this race, his average starting position was 34.0.

But Ellis has an average finishing position of 20.3, which included a 13th at Vegas, the closest comparable track the series has run this season to Texas. His only finish outside of the top 20 was at Talladega, when he had a mechanical issue that led to a DNF.

Ryan Vargas ($5,700) - Starting 31st

Vargas has an average finish of 25.8 this year, which isn't that much better than where he starts this week, but there's enough upside here for me to consider him as a punt play.

Vargas has run surprisingly well at this track, including an eighth-place finish here in 2020. He followed that up with top 25s in both starts here last season and has completed 99.8% of his laps at Texas. Really think Vargas can sneak a top 20 here.
