Ty Dillon finished 16th last week at Phoenix International Raceway, behind his two principal Rookie of the Year contenders Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones, who scored top-10s.

Predicting top-10s for rookies is difficult because it usually entails a certain amount of luck and track position. Dillon will earn several strong finishes this year, but our best guess says he will wind up with only half as many as Suarez and Jones.
