For NASCAR fantasy players, the first two weeks of the 2021 season have likely been agonizing β€” unless you were astute enough to pick Michael McDowell and Christopher Bell.

Otherwise, the fate of NASCAR's top drivers in the Daytona 500 and on the Daytona Road Course probably wrecked many NASCAR fantasy lineups.

The good news is that things should return to normal this week, making it easier for NASCAR fantasy players to select their lineups. The Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway will be more typical of what NASCAR drivers and teams face week to week on the 1.5-mile track.

The Homestead race also means more of the sport's top stars and NASCAR fantasy picks should run well at Homestead and return to the front, making them safer plays in NASCAR fantasy.

Here's a look at the top drivers at Homestead and the best NASCAR fantasy plays for Sunday's Cup Series race.
