After a few months that seemed to last a lifetime, we have finally made it to the Daytona 500. NASCAR DFS on DraftKings and FanDuel is going to be popping off like Sheck Wes concert in the pre rona days, and the guys and I are so pumped to bring you what you need to get the bag during the super bowl of racing. To top it all off, Chef BoiRDeen, Dale Tanhardt, and me packed our shit up around midnight and headed to Tona to bring you guys some great video content along with our DFS and Betting articles here on the site.
Before digging into my free NASCAR DFS plays this week, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people who have been joining our Discord. I never dreamed that we would be off to this type of a start before the first major race of the year, but here we are. I’m very grateful for you guys and look forward to getting to know you all on a personal level this season.
This year’s Daytona 500 is packed with new drivers, new energy, and overall and different tone with all the changes NASCAR has made to spice up the sport. On Wednesday, Alex Bowman kicked things off in a big way for Team Hendrick and stole the pole in his new whip (The 48 is back!? Maybe?), and Bubba Wallace is looking SO DAMN FAST in his new 23XI Toyota Camry. I am amped to get my lineups set, so zone into your monitor with me, and let’s get our money-making asses into gear.

Daytona 500 NASCAR DFS Picks – DraftKings and FanDuel
#11 Denny Hamlin – (DK – $10.4K | FD – $14K)
Why not kick things off with the man that’s posted back to back Daytona 500 wins, Mr. Dennis Hamlin. Hamlin will be starting from P25 on Sunday, and you have to play him with that type of place differential upside. I don’t see him pulling a three-peat, but if all goes well he should easily finish inside the Top 8 on Sunday.
#17 Chris Buescher – (DK – $6.9K | FD – $7.3K)
Buescher just continues to get slapped in the face by the people setting the prices at DraftKings, and while his feelings may be hurt, this makes our salary budget happy AF. Since making the move to Rousch Fenway Racing, Buescher has landed himself inside the Top 10 in both of his previous races at Daytona International Speedway. He will start P22 on Sunday (Get Ballsy and just play the man, It’s Tona!).
#9 Chase Elliott – (DK – $10.3K | FD – $13.5)
If you don’t have the 2020 NASCAR Cup Champion in some lineups this Sunday, are you even a real NASCAR fan? I agree that Elliott hasn’t had the best luck here in years past, but watching the confidence he has coming into this season moves the needle for me. Elliott starts from P12 on Sunday and will have his new teammate Kyle Larson behind him for additional support.
#43 Erik Jones – (DK – $7.3K | FD – $6K)
That damn Jones boi made me a little sad during The Duels on Thursday night, but it’s whatever. I’m not passing up a driver starting P31that has good enough equipment to bide his time and strike when we least expect it. I’ll be playing a decent amount of Jones in my lineups on Sunday.
