The NASCAR Xfinity Series returns in an incredible triple-header weekend at Darlington raceway. My NASCAR DFS picks via DraftKings are as tasty as the Steakhouse Elite 200 sounds.
Did that make sense? I think it made sense.
I will be in Darlington to catch all the action in a dramatic last-minute decision to make the trip. I can feel the electricity of the weekend upon me, and I’m not even there yet.
But you don’t care about that (unless you are there and want to come shotgun 900 beers with me at our beautiful new RV). You just care about winners.
The positive energy I am forcefully imposing on this article in order to start hitting massively in Xfinity is… well, it’s petty damn positive.
Couldn’t think of a nice big word there. Sorry. I didn’t feel like thinking about it too much. You get the jist of it.
The list of drivers below that you should play is full of winners. I’m guaranteeing it. I’m not afraid. I’m the best in the universe.
I’m about to make a buffet out of the Steakhouse Elite 200.
Enough of the yapping. Say your blessing, and let’s feast

NASCAR DFS Xfinity Picks For DraftKings
Ty Gibbs: #54 JGR Toyota – $11,100
Gibbs has proven to me that he’s an absolute super star. In his first three races of the season, his finishes are 1st, 2nd and 4th.
I know the counter-argument here is “But it’s Darlington”. Sure. I get it. However, his upside is nothing short of tremendous considering what he accomplished when he conquered the Daytona Road Course.
Even if he doesn’t meet up to par with his prior 3 starts, a Top 10 provides a great points day for your lineups. He’s shown the world that he’s got all the makings to force that into reality.
Bayley Currey: #74 MHR Chevrolet – $5,800
I’m doubling down on Currey this weekend. The upside on his place differential value holds true once again as I wrote him up in my truck picks.
In his last five races, he has four finishes inside the Top 26 and an average finish of 23.8. If you rule out his P40 finish at Talladega, his average finish in the four races prior is 19.8.
Bayley, I’m ridin’ you all weekend bud. If you deliver for me, come out to the RV and have some beers on me.
Secure Currey as a top punt play.
Noah Gragson: #9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet – $9,700
Before you say “You write about Gragson every week”, consider this:
It has not been every week, FYI.
But also, Gragson is averaging 27.2 FP per race via DraftKings. If he doesn’t get crashed from the lead at Homestead and doesn’t succumb to a random engine failure at Phoenix, his numbers would be off the charts.
In his last three races, he’s averaging 55 points per race with three finishes inside the Top 6.
I think Gragson has major potential to be a dominator play this weekend. Three Top 10’s in as many races at Darlington suffices as enough evidence to roll with Noah on Saturday.
BJ McLeod: #90 DGM Racing Chevrolet – $7,400
Now, to the best looking man in the sport. BJ has reached a point where he can be a formidable Top 25 entry somewhat often.
I think BJ is another top punt play for this race. A P38 starting spot combined with his experience and ability to over-perform in lesser equipment bodes well for a solid showing come Saturday.
Brandon Jones: #19 JGR Toyota – $10,400
Jones snuck up to steal a win away at Darlington last year in the aftermath of Denny Hamlin and Ross Chastain tangling in the waning laps. It seems like that’s how he wins all of his races, doesn’t it?
Jones is truly and by far the most wild card of wild cards in DFS. In 8 races, he has four performances of 46 FP or more. He also has four races of massive negative FP performances.
Fortunately, a P22 starting spot provides a decent buffer to a devastating outcome. Jones has also consistently shown competitive speed throughout most of the season. If you knock out the DNF’s, he would be having a tremendous season.
I love Jones as a top play for Saturday as I believe he will be a race-winning contender.
