NASCAR DFS is back, and it’s time to bag with my Driver Picks for the Ruoff Mortgage 500 at Phoenix Raceway. Theres been a solid influx of DFS players on DraftKings and FanDuel in the past few weeks, and It’s because THE PEOPLE WANT IT! People also want NASCAR Best Bets, and luckily I have you covered over on The Action Network app.
I had a fantastic Saturday, and if you rode with me and Dale you did good with your NASFINITY Bets where we saw DAT BOI Noah Gragson take the win. I’d like to take a sentence to tell Noah and Trevor Bayne that I appreciate their services. I’d also like to thank them for funding my DFS lines this week as well.
We saw some pretty wow things during Cup practice, and my picks this week reflect what I saw (and what my wizard brain is seeing in the future). We all know that Truex and Larson will be heavily owned due to their qualifying positions, but what separates a winner from a loser is the ability to look outside the box.

Ruoff Mortgage 500: NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks For DraftKings & FanDuel
#4 Kevin Harvick (DraftKings – $9.1K | FanDuel – $10K)
Iv’e got a very good feeling about K-Harv on Sunday, and it’s scary. This track is a beast, and I cant help but feel that old stats will play into this race in a big way. Harvick is just about in the Top 5 for every category of stats NASCAR has at for Phoenix, and it looks like he has some solid long run speed.
#47 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (DraftKings – $7K | FanDuel – $7.3K)
Stenhouse had an alright run in practice but he ended up having to pop the engine out after a malfunction. This sets Ricky up to be the king of place differential potential in Phoenix starting P36. What I love the most is that Hendrick gave him a new engine and he referred to it as “A Bullet”.
#41 Cole Custer (DraftKings – $6.2K | FanDuel – $5K)
Cold world for Cole Custer last week in Las Vegas, but we’re not in Vegas anymore so who gives a shit. Custer starts P25 on Sunday, and my model is projecting him to be about 18% owned in DFS lineups. I’m expecting a solid bounce back for Cole and the Ford camp in general.
#11 Denny Hamlin (DraftKings – $10.1K | FanDuel – $11.5K)
I may disrupt some of you with this play, but I’m all in on Hamlin tomorrow in betting and DFS. Hamlin starts P2 and with Larson starting from the rear I’m confident Hamlin will stay up front and possibly take Stage 1 with dominance. He loves the adjustments made on his car after practice and he seems calm, cool, and collected.
