Kyle Larson has been the strongest rookie by a wide margin in 2014 with four top-fives and another four top-10s. He leads the rookie standings over Austin Dillon by a score of 215 to 187 points.

No one expected this kind of output from Larson at the beginning of the year, but players have rapidly adjusted to make him one of the most popular drivers in the fantasy field. In the final 17 races, if he fails to find Victory Lane, his season might be classified as a minor disappointment. His third-place finish at New Hampshire stopped a three-race skid in which he finished outside the top 25 each time and he is safe to place on one’s roster again.

In the Camping World RV Sales 301, Kyle Larson narrowly missed matching his career-best finish. With a dramatic green-white-checkered finish, he crossed under the checkers third behind Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch. His best career finish is second in this March’s Auto Club 400. This was his fourth top-five in 2014.

More importantly, Larson ended a three-race slide that saw him finish 28th at Sonoma, 40th at Kentucky, and 36th at Daytona. His third-place finish elevated him to 14th in the standings and puts him back in Chase contention based on points. With 11 unique winners this year, only five positions remain open for drivers near the top of the points’ standings.
