The NASCAR Cup Series will make its debut at World Wide Technology Raceway just outside of St. Louis, MO. The track will provide some challenges for some drivers who haven’t seen the track in years, some have never raced here. This will also provide challenges for your fantasy team trying to figure out who to pick. That is where this article comes in. Read below to help you figure out your DraftKings NASCAR DFS picks for the Enjoy Illinois 300 this weekend.
DraftKings NASCAR DFS Overview
In this DraftKings NASCAR DFS picks column, we will be using DraftKings prices and scoring. Their scoring includes the following:
- .25 points for leading a lap
- .45 points for the fastest laps
- Add/subtract a half-point based on the difference in a driver’s finishing position relative to their starting position
- Points based on where the driver finishes
Enjoy Illinois 300 Drivers to Consider | DraftKings NASCAR DFS Picks
Ross Chastain ($10,000)
Ross Chastain has a win in his Truck Series career at this track. He knows the track because of that and will have a bit of an advantage come Sunday. Of course, there will be practice this weekend so the other drivers will be somewhat familiar with the track, but not as familiar as the driver of the 1. Put the watermelon smashing Chastain in your DraftKings NASCAR DFS lineups.
Christopher Bell ($9,200)
A driver who has been under the radar this season. Christopher Bell has had good races on this track before in the Truck Series. Bell should have that success transfer to the Cup Series for the first race on this track. The 20 car should be in your DraftKings NASCAR DFS picks this week.
Todd Gilliland ($4,900)
A guy who could be sneaky good this weekend is the driver of the 38. Last year Todd Gilliland was in the Truck Series so he will be the one who ran this track the most recently. Gilliland probably won’t get you a top ten, but he will get you position differential and maybe a top 15. Put the 38 car in your DraftKings NASCAR DFS lineup for a good cheap option.
Enjoy Illinois 300 Drivers to Avoid | DraftKings NASCAR DFS Picks
Kyle Larson ($11,300)
The driver who is the most expensive this week is the driver of the 5. Kyle Larson has not raced at World Wide Technology raceway before. Which means he did not have a lap turned on track before Friday. Not what you want from a guy who costs the most out of all the drivers. Save your money and look elsewhere for your DraftKings NASCAR DFS picks.
Tyler Reddick ($9,400)
The driver of the 8 has had a roller coaster year so far. He has had a good race almost getting a win then the next week he falls flat and has a problem. Reddick came back from a flat last week to finish sixth, which means this week is time for him to have a problem. Avoid Reddick this week for your DraftKings NASCAR DFS lineups.
Brad Keselowski ($7,100)
The newest owner-driver to the Cup Series is not having a great season at all. The driver of the 6 has been down bad in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season. Only three top tens for him this season and two of them came in non-points races (Daytona Duel and All-Star Race). Keselowski and RFK need to turn things around soon, but for now do not put him in your DraftKings NASCAR DFS picks.
