Drivers have two types of fantasy value every week. They have Personal Fantasy Value, and Comparative Fantasy Value.
Personal Fantasy Value is an estimation of how good the driver is at a certain track compared to the other venues on the circuit.
Comparative Fantasy Value is an estimation of how good the driver compares to the competition at a certain track.
The levels of fantasy value from best to worst are … > High > Medium-High > Medium > Low
Let’s talk about Matt Kenseth’s fantasy values at Sonoma.
His Personal Fantasy Value is Low. Out of all the tracks on the schedule Sonoma is arguably his worst. It’s home to his worst average finish (21.9) and in 17 races he’s only finished in the top ten once.
His Comparative Fantasy Value is Medium. Performance wise this weekend I think he’s likely going to be around a high-teens performer.
