Best, sleeper options to consider for NASCAR DFS at Darlington on Wednesday

Kevin Harvick headlines the field of drivers facing off in Wednesday’s Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway. We break down why he and other participants could be ideal DFS picks.

Racing returned last weekend with the Real Heroes 400 marking the restart of the 2020 Cup Series schedule. The Cup Series returns on Wednesday for a second Darlington race. The Toyota 500 is set to begin at 6:00 p.m. ET on FS1, and DraftKings will have DFS contests going for the race. We break down some of the best picks in the field below. You can enter your lineup here.

Best Bets

Kevin Harvick ($11,600)

Harvick won at The Real Heroes 400 on Sunday and had the first pit still. He’ll have the first pit stall again on Wednesday. Most players will probably go with Kyle Busch ($12,000) as their top driver, but Harvick’s recent success and pit placement give him and advantage here.

Chase Elliott ($10,300)

Elliott didn’t seem to be affected by rust Sunday at The Real Heroes 400. He finished in fourth place and extended his streak of top seven finishes to three races. He and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman ($10,000) are top five drivers in the NASCAR Cup series and should be considered favorites.

Sleeper Picks

Joey Logano ($9,400)

Logano has a decent price tag, but could be more expensive given his recent success on intermediate tracks. He’s tallied seven top five finishes on intermediate tracks sine February of 2019. His 18th place finish at The Real Heroes 400 shouldn’t affect his confidence too much.

Clint Bowyer ($7,300)

Bowyer got close to a top five finish Sunday but was thrown of course after getting some debris on his car during the race. Although Bowyer hasn’t been good at Darlington historically, he could build upon the success he had over the weekend and hope misfortune doesn’t strike again.
