NASCAR DFS Picks, Fades, Projections for Pocono

NASCAR heads to Pocono Raceway, AKA the Tricky Triangle this weekend for 160 laps at the 2.5-mile circuit. As always, I’ll give you my NASCAR DFS picks, fades, and projections for this weekend’s race. Also, the NASCAR DFS Multi-Lineup OptimizerSim Scores, and Splits apps are updated for your NASCAR DFS needs. Because there was no NASCAR podcast this week thanks to my tooth extraction, be sure to check out my Pocono preview article which has all the info I’d normally give on the podcast in article form, as well as early week thoughts on drivers post-qualifying. RotoViz Live will be in written Q+A form as well. Get me your questions on Twitter using #RVLive and Saturday night I’ll write up an article answering the best questions. For betting insights into the race, be sure to check out PJ Walsh’s piece at The Action Network as he fills in for me this weekend. In that article, PJ will highlight his favorite NASCAR bets for Pocono. Also, be sure to check out Matthew Freedman’s article on the top prop bets for Sunday’s race. If you’re new to daily fantasy NASCAR, or simply need a refresher, check out the large oval 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 Pocono!


The model projections assume that the driver finishes the race – hence why you don’t see any average finishing positions worse than about 32nd. The Pts column shows the average projected DraftKings points for races when the driver finishes the race.
