There’s three elements to scoring in fantasy NASCAR at DraftKings. I refer to them as “Dominator”, “Mover” and “Good Finish.” Dominator points come from leading laps and having fastest laps. Mover points come from drivers who are able to advance in the running order. Good Finish is pretty self-explanatory and it essentially sets a drivers baseline fantasy score.
Let’s talk about Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s fantasy values. His overall fantasy value is high. The combination of netting a good finish, and picking up some mover points should give him a good points day. His Dominator value is low. He’s going to have a hard time leading laps from the 16th place starting position. He might get in a few fastest laps but that would be negligible. His Mover fantasy value is Medium. I think he’ll be able to move up quite a few positions. If he moves up 10 positions that would net you 20 points. His Good Finish value is high, I expect him to finish well on Sunday.
