Best Monkey Knife Fight NASCAR DFS Props for the Daytona 500
NASCAR DFS | “Rapidfire” Contest for 3x Buy-In
I took it easy with Hamlin vs Logano and Keselowski vs Elliott. I firmly believe that Keselowski and Logano will be finishing the race in the top three while Hamlin and Elliott both wreck. And giving me the points along with my pick to win, easy money. -Zach McAdoo
NASCAR DFS | “More or Less” Contest for 3x Buy-In
I like Team Penske as a whole in the Daytona 500. The trio of Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano have proven to be terrific at working together as draft partners in the superspeedway races. Add in their semi-teammate in Wood Brothers driver Matt DiBenedetto and you’ve got a quartet of drivers who know how to get organized and work their way through the tightly packed field. Blaney should spend ample time up near the front and I’m expecting a strong finishing result from him as well. For this NASCAR DFS contest, I’ll take Blaney to go over 12.5 fantasy points.
William Byron may be starting second, but things could very easily go south in a hurry. Thanks to a nasty crash in the Bluegreen Vacations Duel qualifying race, the Hendrick Motorsports driver will be forced to drive a backup car in the Daytona 500. I’m not convinced he will be able to put a quality race together in a backup car. With that said, I’ll play under 12.5 fantasy points for Byron in this NASCAR DFS contest. -Henry John
MONSTER Payout NASCAR DFS Prop

Heck, you might as well just say you won the Daytona 500 itself if you manage to ace this prop!
