The Sway Bar: NASCAR Draftkings Plays, Fades and Values for the Martinsville Fall 2018

Late qualifying and late inspection makes things difficult. Super quick version this week so you guys can get to your lineups. This week will likely be pretty messy because of the inspection failures. As always, the research is just getting started, so think about getting signed up and get exclusive access to our projection model, the domination station lineup optimizer, and most importantly, direct chat room access to some of the sharpest NASCAR minds in the industry. I will be on there all weekend updating everyone on my research.

Top Plays

Kyle Busch – This is a lock. KB is the best at Martinsville right now and its not close. He should lead most of the laps and probably win.

Martin Truex Jr. – MTJ has been improving on short tracks lately, but still is without a win. The win likely won’t come today, but thanks to his qualifying time be disallowed, he is one of the best plays of the day. Super chalky though – you could make a case for fading him.

Jimmie Johnson – JJ is like MTJ Jr this week – not much chance to win, but should have a good showing thanks to his starting spot.

Clint Bowyer – I think is Boywer is a nice pivot off the Busch/MTJ/JJ train this week. He has been super fast recently and won here in the spring. He has finished in the top ten here in the last three goes, and should have something for Busch this time around.

Worth Mentioning

Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott, Ryan Newman and Erik Jones are all worth a look this week and offer a trip off the chalk,

Value Plays

Paul Menard – Menard will start towards the back thanks to an engine change. He has been a top 20 staples here during the last couple races and the same can be expected here.

David Ragan – I only like this pick because he is starting so far back. He looked strong in practice, but his races here haven’t been very impressive in the past. Still a valuable play, though.

Bubba Wallace – Bubba starts 37th at one of his better tracks (atleast in the lower series). This is a risky play because Bubba has been a magnet for trouble this year. Don’t go crazy here – I feel he will be overowned anyway which will diminish his value.

AJ Allmendinger – AJ should offer some value this weekend. He starts too far up to be too over-owned, and has tremendous ability at Martinsville. I will be way over on the Dinger.

So there it is folks. We will be talking more strategy on the DFS Army Slack Room right up until lock. Get signed up and get exclusive access to our projection model, the domination station lineup optimizer, and most importantly, direct chat room access to some of the sharpest NASCAR minds in the industry. As always, use my research as a launching point for yours. Trust your process, good luck this week, and let’s make some cash.
