There’s three elements to scoring in fantasy NASCAR at DraftKings. I will 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 (position differential). Good Finish is pretty self-explanatory and it essentially sets a drivers baseline fantasy score.
Let’s talk about Jimmie Johnson’s fantasy values. His Good Finish Value is high. He’s been the man to beat at Texas recently and I expect him to finish well. His Dominator Value is medium. At Texas over recent years he’s been a stats stuffer in terms of leading laps and getting fastest laps. This spring because of how he performed in “Dominator” statistics he was the top scoring driver (Points From The Spring 2015 Texas Race). Recently he hasn’t been as strong at these venues so that’s why he’s not rated high in that category. His Mover Fantasy Value is low. From his 8th place starting position I don’t expect him to pick up many of those points.
