I perpetually suck at Fantasy NASCAR. The last few years it’s because I don’t have the time or energy to keep up with racing news. I’m busy, damnit!
I’m off to a bad start already this season because 4 out of my 5 racers the first week were knocked out by that 17-car pileup at Daytona. If past patterns hold out, I will continue to stink and the other people in my fantasy group will wax me. This is somewhat humiliating, since I’m the only one among them who knew jack about racing before we started this a few NASCAR seasons ago.
So… you NASCAR fans and RPM watchers… this where you come in. I get to reshuffle my lineup every week, if desired. I set up my first team on the fly, with no research. Now is time to get serious. Cranky’s reputation is at stake. I need to know who among the lower-profile drivers seem like good bets. These are ones I can pick up cheap, pointwise, but can deliver good bang for the buck. If they start doing well, their price will go up, but I’ll have them locked in at a cheaper price thanks to SDMB wisdom.
Who’s your favorite up-and-comer?
