EchoPark Automotive GP At COTA: NASCAR DFS Driver Picks For DraftKings, FanDuel

The big day has arrived as NASCAR unleashes on road at COTA for the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix. DFS Salaries are out on Draftkings and Fanduel for Drivers and that means it’s time to make picks and give us a solid Core for Sunday. The weather is looking to be incredible and I cant wait to see the Gen 7 car in action.

Earlier in the week, I made my first Bet on Action Network for the Cup Series race, and if you enjoy my DFS articles, be sure to read my Analysis on the bets. It’s the same vibe and Top 10s have been kind to us lately. Aside from that don’t forget to check out Dale Tanhardt’s Betting articles here on GGFS.

Before I spill my core DFS guys, it’s important to note that last year we had a rain fest. Stats from 2021 can be looked at but rely heavier on practice times and qualifying for this race when building lineups. Both the truck and Xfinity race were tricky, so there is no telling what we might see happen.

NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks For COTA On DraftKings & FanDuel

#9 Chase Elliott (DraftKings – $10.5K | FanDuel – $14K)

Chase Elliott starts P12 and should be a top contender for this race. You get a proven road course winner with place differential potential, and you have to spend up for it, but that’s ok. Elliott has proven time and time again that he is the Road Gawd, so ride the wave.

#1 Ross Chastain (DraftKings – $8.2K | FanDuel – $9.2K)

Chastain starts P16 on Sunday and has had some good experience in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday. Chastain ran up top most of the day and despite his fall back, I am not afraid to play him in a Trackhouse racing car. The speed is there and he’s knocking on the door of a dub.

#24 William Byron (DraftKings – $9.3K | FanDuel – $10K)

After the juju last week, I can’t pass up William Byron in the 24 starting P24. His nerves are probably loose and in a Hendrick car, he should make some good gains on the day. I look for Willy B to be pretty popular, but necessary on Sunday.

#77 Josh Bilicki (DraftKings – $4.9K | FanDuel – $2K)

For my ultimate gut boi play, I had to take Josh Bilicki. The man has some road experience and with him now in the 77 at Spire Motorsports, I feel pretty comfortable playing him more in certain situations. This week is one of those times where I think the DFS sites will never value him this low on road again.
