    Saturday: Pocono Organics 325

    Sunday: Pocono 350

    Teams are supposed to use the same car for both races. Or else start at the back of the pack on Sunday.

    Is it crazy to go all in on Erik Jones tomorrow? Wonder how his backup car will do? Unless he crashes again, his positions differential have to make him an auto-play. He’s been awesome at this track. How much Jones is too much Jones? Decisions, decisions.

  • ljason8eg

    Erik will probably fly through the field, run inside the top ten for most of the race, then blow a tire with 5 laps to go and finish 30th.

    It’s all about your risk tolerance. There’s enough variance in NASCAR I would never recommend going all in on anyone, but that’s me. I usually max at around 65-70% at tracks like Pocono, where wrecks are rare. Jones was a great play today and look what happened. I suppose an argument can be made that since he had issues today it then becomes less likely for him to have an issue tomorrow. Law of averages or something.

    and take out your dominator

    So many great plays tomorrow. Is it ever optimal to punt one of your roster spots to fits in what you think are five slam dunk plays in Nascar?

    Logano starting 36

    As gross as it may seem, sprinkling in Quinn Houff and his minimum 4 points, might not be the worst play in the world. It allows you to make some crazy good lineups.

    This has not been a good track for him the past few years.

    True, but he has nowhere to go but up. A reasonable finish of 15 probably puts him in the optimal lineup.

    Yeah, I am firing 10 lineups tomorrow and I have 70% of both Jones and Bell and 50% of Almirola. Doesn’t feel right.

    and im sure he comes in at dom price

    Looks like Bowman will be chalk starting 27th but Chevys were crap yesterday and his car had an issue yesterday. He could be a chalk fade.

    In the 10k range on FD

    Bowman
    Byron
    Jones

    I have no Bowman, a couple Byron and one Jones. I think there’s a chance that fading all 3 is a good play though.

  • Stangs13

    Best play below 6.1k?

  • goboltsgo

    lots of people going to the back and they still have tech to do watch the news y’all going to be very important i would guess.

  • depalma13

    Massive overlay in the $5k Trucks race.

  • depalma13

    Last minute change to drop Crafton from my top lineup worked this time. Usually that bites me.

  • realphipps

    As someone who sucks at all DFS, I find today’s race to be one of the toughest to play. So many good plays in the back of the pack, so many bad plays up front.

  • monarch

    Where does Logano need to finish to be a must play? I think its tricky because all the JGR guys are high ceiling plays and an argument can be made that their team is just really better today than Penske and you want all of them considering they have PD built in as well. So Logano finishing maybe 18th might not be necessary?

  • monarch

    To piggyback off that. Everyone will see what Chris Bell did yesterday PD wise and see that Logano is cheaper and want some of that action. But Bell is like almost team JGR and the scoring should be much much higher today

    I’m rolling with just a few lineups again, so not fading the super chalk. Which I think is Logano, Jones, and Reddick. Agree that if you fade one of them and something happens, you get yourself way ahead of the field.

    I don’t have either, but if I was going there Michael McDowell or Quinn Houff would be my pick.

    P.S. I changed my mind and made one more lineup. Put Houff in it.

    Nice finish to the Trucks. A few top 15s!

    Awesome great job! Didnt play any of the trucks hoping to do well in the $3 20 entry myself. Have to step away from lineups for a bit though as i tend to start plugging most of the same guys in instead of checking my ownership %‘s. Going to be a very interesting race today cant wait.
