The following chart takes into account the very basics: the starting position and the projected finish of each driver. The projected finishes are averaged from five different ranking systems, using both mathematical equations as well as personal rankings. This chart also includes the average projected base points + laps led as well as the dollar per FPT. It assumes that all drivers projected to finish 11th or better will complete all laps, those projected 11th-16th will finish 1 lap down, those projected 17th-24th will finish 3 laps down, those projected 25th-30th will finish 5 laps down, and those projected 31st or worse will finish 7 laps down. You can click the headers below to sort the chart by that attribute. By default it is sorted by average projected FPTS.

As someone who has always been obsessed with numbers, Fantasy NASCAR has been the perfect fit with me. I pride myself on the quality of my analysis for each race, and am glad that I have been able to help others along the way. I've been a serious Fantasy NASCAR player for over 10 years now, and I'm just getting started.
