Best, sleeper options to consider for NASCAR DFS at Atlanta on Sunday

Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski are two of our top picks for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

The NASCAR Cup Series’ Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is set to begin Sunday at 3:00 p.m. ET at Atlanta Motor Speedway. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Chase Elliott ($9,900)

Elliott has notched three top 10 finishes in his last four races at Atlanta. He’s had a chance to win more than one recent Cup Series race. The Georgia native has to feel confident in his home state and will start in first on the grid.

Brad Keselowski ($8,900)

Pit stalls one and two won’t be in play, but Keselowski has been assigned to the third stall ahead of Sunday’s race. He’s fresh off a win at the Food City 500 and has seven top 10 finishes in 11 races at Atlanta Motor Speedway since 2008.

Sleeper Picks

Clint Bowyer ($8,700)

Bowyer has notched top 10 finishes in each of his last few races in Atlanta. He finished second to Keselowski at the Food City 500. He hasn’t had a ton of success at the track in the past, but his he’s been in the hunt to get a wins and should receive some consideration.

John Hunter Nemechek ($6,000)

Nemechek has been a promising rookie this season and is riding a nice stretch. He’s tallied three straight top 20 finishes in the Cup Series and has placed 13th in back-to-back races. He’s finished as high as ninth since the season resumed and is an inexpensive dark horse.
