We break down some sleepers and some deep sleepers today’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

One of the biggest races on the NASCAR calendar might feel different today without fans, but you can still get your bets down for the Coca-Cola 600 today at 6:00 p.m. ET on Fox. DraftKings has plenty of DFS contests going for the race, and we break down some of the best picks to round out your roster below, and you can set your lineup here.

Modest Sleepers

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ($7,400)

He’s got a fifth and a tenth in his last two races at Charlotte, and it’s the best track for average finish last year on his calendar. Lifetime he averages an 18.9 finish here, and already has two Top 10s in seven races this season. With Stenhouse it’s always a gamble, but he can get you some points today.

John Nemechek ($6,300)

The rookie had a rough run at Darlington midweek, but on body of work he’s still got value. Started 34th and finished ninth at Darlington’s midweek race for one of the most impressive trips through the field. Since he doesn’t have a ton of horsepower, he’ll likely start towards the back of the field, but that seems to fit him best, as he’s added more than 10 places from his starting position twice this season.

Deep Sleepers

Ty Dillon ($5,700)

Had a somewhat disappointing run at the Toyota 500 midweek, starting on the outside pole and finishing 19th, but he still led eight laps and scooped up 11 points. That’s well off his average of 29.1 fantasy points per face this year, but if he can get closer to his usual this year at this price point, he’ll save you valuable roster dollars.

Bubba Wallace ($5,900)

He’s not spectacular, but he’s consistent. Has a 16th and a 25th career at Charlotte in two races, and is averaging 33.3 fantasy points per race this season on the major circuit. Throw in a couple of Top 10’s already, and you’re getting value at under $6,000 against your salary cap. Another guy that seems to race well in the middle of the field, which will likely be required after qualifying today.
