Based on his consistency, Cole Whitt could be a conditionally good pick for fantasy players. His last four efforts on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks of Texas, Kansas, Charlotte, and Kentucky have ended in results ranging from 27th to 31st.
Whitt will not anchor many rosters, but if he fits the final niche he could be a good value. Consistency is often at least as important for players as raw strength. Aug 29 - 10:06 AM

Cole Whitt has been consistent on flat tracks this season with five results ranging from 27th through 32nd.

Whitt’s Pocono 400 finish was 30th, which is close to his average on minimally-banked courses. Fantasy owners can expect another result in that same range and plan accordingly.

Cole Whitt has shown promise on NASCAR’s flat tracks. He finished in the top 30 in four of five races, with a best of 27th being earned at Phoenix. His other efforts netted a 29th at Martinsville, 30th at Pocono, and 28th at New Hampshire, which leaves a 41st at Richmond as the only poor effort.

At Richmond, Whitt had tire issues that sent him behind the wall for an extended stay. He was not the only driver to experience trouble that evening as veteran Clint Bowyer also had to make extensive repairs after a tire failure. Whitt’s consistency otherwise makes him an interesting dark horse choice for a top-25.

What’s in a name? In Cole Whitt’s case it would appear to be worth two positions. In his first eight races this season with Swan Racing he posted an average finish of about 31st. His latest 11 races netted and average of 29th.

Equally important, Whitt has been improving during races. His first eight attempts witnessed him finishing better than he qualified in 63 percent of his starts; the last 11 have shown advancement in 82 percent.

Cole Whitt will make his first New Hampshire Cup start this week. Fantasy players will need to determine his fantasy relevance based on performances in other short, flat track races at the Cup level.

Whitt has not been great on the short, flat tracks of Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond with an average finish of 34.4. His best effort of 27th came in the Profit 500k at Phoenix earlier this year, however, and that could bode well for another top-30 finish in the Camping World RV Sales 301.
