ANALYST

NASCAR fantasy players have been on a wild ride the first three weeks of the season with three upsets and plenty of surprise performances in the first three NASCAR Cup Series races.

If NASCAR fantasy players were astute enough to pick William Byron, Tyler Reddick or Kyle Larson last week at Homestead, they had a big week. But NASCAR fantasy players who played Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski, Ryan Blaney or even Denny Hamlin were likely disappointed.

NASCAR fantasy players will likely want to stick with the top drivers and safer bets at least one more week as Las Vegas Motor Speedway has produced few upsets over the years. One of the few exceptions, however, was last March when Joey Logano won the race, but Matt DiBenedetto, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Austin Dillon and Bubba Wallace all made NASCAR fantasy players happy by finishing in the top six.

The last race at Las Vegas in September favored NASCAR fantasy players who took fewer gambles, with Kurt Busch winning and Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. both finishing in the top five.

The 1.5-mile track tends to favor the top drivers, however, making things a bit easier for NASCAR fantasy players this week. Check out our betting odds and picks for Las Vegas to help with your NASCAR fantasy lineups.
