NASCAR DFS Picks and Projections for The Duels

The Duels at Daytona are two qualifying races that set the starting lineup for the Daytona 500. I’ll give my NASCAR DFS picks and fades for each of the two races. The Duels are two 60-lap races, with half the field in the first race, and the other half of the field in the second race, for a total of 20 drivers in each race. That means, compared to The Clash, place differential would normally be even more important, but due to the nature of the Duels tending to have fewer cautions, I see most scenarios where two or even occasionally three drivers starting inside the top 10 end up in the winning DFS lineup in either race. For a strategic breakdown of the race, check out RotoViz Live which covers strategy for this slate. Since our NASCAR DFS Lineup Optimizer can only handle one race at a time, the Optimizer currently only displays lineups for Duel 1. The Optimizer will be updated for Duel 2 as soon as humanly possible after lineups lock for Duel 1 (within a handful of minutes). Here are the projections and picks for the Duels.
