Sunday’s Pocono 350 will be an exciting race. The drivers could be fatigued coming off of Saturday’s Pocono Organics 325. When looking at DFS options, there will be a lot of factors to take a look at. Saturday’s results will also play a big part of picking your lineup for Sunday’s affair.
Starting position could be a big key to picking the winner. Four of the last five winners here have started in one of the first 10 positions, so when making your lineup selections, take a look at those who have a good starting position. With the track configuration making passing tough, those who have good starting spots have the potential to earn you lap-leading points.
Place differential points could be hard to come by here. With passing being very difficult, it is going to be very hard for drivers starting at the rear of the field to move up. Mid-pack starters may be the way to go if you’re looking for place differential points.
We won’t know Sunday’s starting spots until after Saturday’s race, so make sure that you take a good look at the starting field. Let’s take a look at some potential fantasy studs for Sunday’s Pocono 350.
Kyle Busch – $11,000
Busch has a high salary, but his track record here warrants it. Busch has taken the checkered flag in three of his last five starts at Pocono. Along with six straight top-10 finishes here, Busch has what it takes to tame the triangle. If Busch races well on Saturday, that will make him an even better selection on Sunday.
Martin Truex Jr. – $9,800
Truex has won twice at Pocono, with his most recent victory coming in 2018. With four top 10 finishes in his last six starts here, Truex is a good pick to finish at or near the top.. Truex loves racing on 2.5 mile tracks, so Pocono could be good to him.
William Byron – $8,600
Byron only has four career starts at the Pocono Raceway. He hasn’t won here yet, but he has finished in the top-10 in three of those four. Byron could be a great choice for a spot in your lineup.
Erik Jones – $7,400
As we can see above, we seem to have a common theme here. Jones, along with Busch, Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin (who has also had success at Pocono) are all members of the Joe Gibbs Racing Team. The Gibbs Team has won the last five races at Pocono. Jones is winless in his six starts at Pocono, but he has finished in the top five in four of them. Jones hasn’t had a great 2020 season, but maybe coming to Pocono could be the change that he needs. Jones could be a great value pick.
