Welcome back for another week of daily fantasy NASCAR. This week the Monster Energy Cup series travels to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Overton's 301 on Sunday afternoon. The track is a 1.058-mile Intermediate track and with just 12 degrees of banking, is one of the flattest tracks in the series. What does that mean? It is going to be tough to pass making track position very important.

From a fantasy perspective, qualifying is going to be crucial when looking for Dominator drivers. There have been eight drivers over the last six races here(two in each of the last two races) that have led 100 or more laps, and all of them started inside the Top 10 at the drop of the green flag. As always, we will have to fill in around those possible dominators with some place differential value. There is a plethora of those once again this week. Keep in mind these picks are written Friday night and the model on the cheatsheet is not complete with two more practices tomorrow. Check back in the chat for updates or grab a copy of the FREE cheatsheet that will be updated following the final practices. Let's take a look at some of my top plays post-qualifying.

 

Daily Fantasy NASCAR: DraftKings DFS Lineup Picks - Overton's 301

Martin Truex Jr. ($10,300) 

He moves to the pole position and has a great shot at picking up a ton of dominator points once again this week. He was second fastest in opening practice and it will ultimately depend on the final two practices but he has led 1,115 laps this season, over 250 more than second in that category. He is currently #1 in my model.

Kyle Larson ($9,700)

He originally had the pole until the #42 car failed post-qualifying inspection and will start from the read of the field once again. At a price under $10K, he is an auto play in cash games and makes a tough fade in GPP's with the place differential upside.

Ryan Blaney ($8,300)

He opened up the weekend fourth in practice but failed to make it to the final round of qualifying and wills tart 15th on Sunday. He finished 12th and 11th in last year's races here and depending on the final two practices, looks like he has a Top 10 car this week.

Ryan Newman ($7,300)

As long as his price stays in the low $7K range and he keeps qualifying outside the Top 20 I will use him in cash games every week. He starts 24th this Sunday and has finished Top 20 here at NHMS in seven straight races including three Top 10's, two of which where he started outside the Top 20.
