After back-to-back weeks of racing at Daytona International Speedway, the NASCAR Cup Series is once again running in the Sunshine State this week. Homestead-Miami Speedway will be the first 1.5-mile track to host a race in 2021. It’s a far cry from Homestead’s former status as the host track of the championship race, but fans can still get in on tons of good NASCAR DFS action this weekend.

NASCAR DFS | “Rapidfire” Contest for 3x Buy-In
I see Denny Hamlin leading laps early, but something is going to cost him late in the race. I don’t think he finishes in the top 20 to get points. Give me Kevin Harvick in that matchup. Then, I like Chase Elliott to get a top 5 here and Martin Truex Jr. to not finish close enough to keep it close enough. Follow that? Take the Harvick-Elliott combo in this NASCAR DFS prop.
NASCAR DFS | “Rapidfire” Contest for 1.5x Buy-In
To be quite honest, the spreads in this NASCAR DFS prop are a bit puzzling to me. For as well as Denny Hamlin has run so far this season on his way to three stage wins, a driver of Kevin Harvick’s skillset catching 1.5 fantasy points is simply too good to pass up. Harvick’s average finish at Homestead of 6.9 is better than any other driver with multiple starts at the track. Harvick ran better than expected last week at the Daytona Road Course and should have another strong showing on Sunday.
Looking at the other two matchups in this contest, I again find myself struggling to justify not taking the points with JGR’s Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch. Past statistics from Homestead-Miami Speedway support the underdogs. Harvick, Truex Jr. and Busch all have a higher career driver rating at Homestead than Hamlin, Elliott and Logano. With positions gained and lost not a factor in Monkey Knife Fight NASCAR DFS scoring, I like two of the three dogs to get the job done and make this a winning play.
