NASCAR DFS Picks, Fades, Projections for Bristol

NASCAR makes its first trip to Bristol Motor Speedway for the 2018 season. Bristol is a half-mile, steeply banked bullring, where accidents can happen quickly. As always, I’ll give you my NASCAR DFS picks, fades, and projections for this weekend’s race. Also, the NASCAR DFS Multi-Lineup Optimizer, Sim Scores, and Splits apps are updated for your NASCAR DFS needs. For betting insights into the race, check out my piece at The Action Network. In that article, I’ll highlight my favorite NASCAR bets for Sunday’s race. Also, be sure to check out Matthew Freedman’s article on the top prop bets for Bristol. I’m on vacation in Long Beach for the IndyCar race, so I will record RotoViz Live tonight (Saturday night) at 8:30pm PT/5:30pm ET — thus, be sure to get your questions to me on Twitter using the hashtag #RVLive before  and I’ll pick the best ones to answer. The video with my answers will be posted after I finish recording at If you’re new to daily fantasy NASCAR, or simply need a refresher, check out the steep track section of my track types article. Brush up on your general GPP strategy and game theory if you want to have a shot at taking down first place. If you’re more of a cash game player, check out how to target high floor drivers, and remember to find any potential race dominators. Let’s get to the NASCAR DFS picks and projections for Bristol!


The model projections assume that the driver finishes the race – hence why you don’t see any average finishing positions worse than about 26th. The Pts column shows the average projected DraftKings points for races when the driver finishes the race.
