Modest, deep sleeper options to consider for Xfinity Series DFS at Dover International Speedway

For Round 2 of the Dover doubleheader, we find some sleepers and deep sleepers for Sunday’s Drydene 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series Race at Dover International Speedway.

Justin Allgaier won yesterday’s Xfinity Cup Series Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway, and what a better way to celebrate than to try and win today’s Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway. Same race, same length, same sponsor, same concrete... different day.

You can set your lineup here, and today’s contests lock at 1:20 p.m. instead of 12:45 p.m. See, there is something different about them!

Modest Sleepers

Michael Annett ($7,900)

Started eighth and finished ninth yesterday for 34 DFS points. Now has eleven Top-10 finishes this season, and moves up a single spot to start seventh today. In a series where consistency shows better equipment, he’s been solid since the Covid break.

Timmy Hill ($6,900)

Despite a vibration that kept him starting and finishing in last place yesterday, prior to that had improved on his starting position in each of the last seven races, averaging 34 DFS points each. He begins in 36th again today, but hopefully will finish more than 55 laps. It’s actually pretty impressive he still gained nine DFS points despite being the first out of the race yesterday.

Deep Sleepers

Kyle Weatherman ($6,400)

Started 20th and finished 25th yesterday, which means he’ll start in the 26th spot today. But the big thing is in a pretty clean race all-around, Weatherman didn’t end up in the wall. The problem with bargain hunting in the Xfinity Series is the equipment of drivers is so disparate, you’re really having to hope for wrecks in front of you to find value. A clean run is very possible at The Monster Mile.

Tommy Jo Martins ($6,200)

Began 14th and finished 21st yesterday, which is bad. But today he begins 24th, so he just needs a hold to improve on place position. Before yesterday had improved on where he’s started in each of his last six races, including four on ovals. Averaged 35.8 DFS points across his last six races, including 30.0 on ovals before only scoring 16 yesterday. But he’ll have more room to improve via DFS today from further back in the field.
