GOAT’s 2023 Verizon 200 DFS Breakdown

GOAT's Verizon 200 DFS Breakdown

NASCAR Verizon 200 at the Brickyard
Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course
Sunday 08/13/23 2:30 PM
2.439 mile Road Course

I’m up, I’m ready, because I’m a BEAST!  Full disclosure, I went to bed like three hours ago, and I am very much so, still drunk!!  This is an 82-lap event and first time here.  Only two races here in the past.

Last Race Notables: Reddick won.  Reddick led 38 laps, Bell led 17 laps, Blaney led 17 laps. Start/Finish:  Burton 13/3, Allmendinger 20/7, Custer 24/9, Stenhouse 38/13, Jones 35/15, Ty Gibbs 26/17, Lajoie 31/18.

Remember, number of laps sway the importance of scoring in different directions.  Less laps = less laps led points, and less fastest lap points, making place finish and place differential points a bit more valuable.  Yes, you will still need the dominator, but there is less likely to be two or three of them that really separate themselves from the pack.

Let me give you guys a better idea of what we are doing here for Nascar.  We put out an early article with some track stats and what drivers I will have my eyes on based on some numbers.  Things can change once qualifying and practice are over, so then we put out an update with drivers who seem to be fast or have had a good or bad qualifying run.  I put out a total of 12 drivers I like and a few who I am off.  The guys I am off are typically guys who don’t run that well here and have qualified in a decent position.

I am trying to narrow things down for you.  Too much information can just be confusing.  If you need more information, you can look at the projections tab.

Take a look at the scoring to better understand why I do it this way:

Point Scoring:
Drivers will accumulate points as follows:

DraftKings Scoring:

  • Place Differential = +/- 1 PTs (Where they start vs. where they finish….start 20th, finish 10th = 10 pts)
  • Fastest Laps = +0.5 PTs
  • Laps Led = +0.25 PTs
  • Finishing Position Scoring (winner: 46 pts, 2nd: 42 pts, 3rd: 41 pts, 4th: 40, 39, 38, 37, etc…)

FanDuel Scoring:

  • 0.1 PTs for each lap completed.
  • Place Differential = +/- 0.5 PTs (Where they start vs. where they finish….start 20th, finish 10th = 10 pts)
  • Fastest Laps = +0.5 PTs
  • Laps Led = +0.1 PTs
  • Finishing Position Scoring (winner: 43 pts, 2nd: 40 pts, 3rd: 38 pts, 4th: 37, 36, 35, 34, etc…)
