Chase Elliott was the second-best non-playoff driver in the Ford 400 at Homestead Miami Speedway with a fifth.
After not advancing to the final stage of qualifying Elliott started back in 18th and moved forward 13 spots to capture his sixth top-five of the 10 race playoffs. Last year in his first attempt at the track the then rookie finished just outside the top 10 in 11th. "Second-place Chase," a nickname the young driver hopes to soon lose will start the 2018 season in the No. 9, his father's old car number. Elliott will be on a mission to capture a quick win to prove his standing with the sports best drivers. Nov 19 - 7:03 PM

For the fourth time in the 2017 playoffs, Chase Elliott finished second in a NASCAR Cup race. This time as the runner-up to Matt Kenseth in the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

This may well have been the most frustrating second-place finish of his career because it was his final chance to get into the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a shot at winning the championship. On his way to the front, Elliott raced Denny Hamlin hard and contributed to the No. 11 cutting a tire. This is a new era of aggression for the sophomore driver.

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway with a speed of 137.368 mph.

Elliott needs to win in order to qualify for the Championship finale and while that is hard to predict for a sophomore driver without a victory to his credit yet, he came close on another short, flat track before getting spun at the end of the Martinsville Speedway race. A solid top-five will still make him a great fantasy value.

Chase Elliott finished eighth in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, but he was the second-worst playoff contender and lost ground in the points.

However, Elliott scored significant fantasy points and that is what is of most concern. Next week he will have to win at Phoenix International Raceway to continue to be playoff eligible and after such a solid run on a short, flat track last week in Virginia, he could actually threaten for at least a top five.
Nov 5 - 7:36 PM

Chase Elliott was one of seven drivers who failed to clear inspection for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and he will line up 34th on Sunday.

Elliott was the only playoff contender who failed to advance and that is going to have a huge impact on his hopes to advance. He will earn positive place-differential points, however, and that makes him a good fantasy value.
Nov 3 - 6:49 PM

Chase Elliott was leading the First Data 500 with a handful of laps remaining before he got wrecked by Denny Hamlin to finish 27th—the last driver one lap down to the field.

In one fell swoop, Elliott went from having an automatic berth in the playoffs to practically needing to win one of the next two races to advance. While his fans are undoubtedly upset that he got wrecked, he also moved then-leader Brad Keselowski out of the groove to take the lead in the first place.

Chase Elliott posted the third-fastest lap in qualification to line up on the inside of the second row for the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Jeff Gordon won this race with this same team as recently as Fall 2015 and Hendrick Motorsports has always been incredibly strong at Martinsville. Elliott should be considered a solid sleeper.
Oct 29 - 1:37 PM

Chase Elliott finished fourth in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, which was his fourth top-five in the past six races.

Elliott is now seeded last among eight playoff drivers because he does not have very many bonus points. That could prove to be the difference between making the final round and missing out, but he is going to continue to be one of the top values as he tries to keep his consistency intact.
Oct 22 - 7:33 PM

Chase Elliott was only 15th-quick in Happy Hour practice for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway with a speed of 178.243 mph.

That made Elliott the second slowest playoff contending driver and he can ill afford to struggle with the tight points’ battle among the top 12.
Oct 21 - 5:20 PM

Add Chase Elliott to the list of drivers eliminated from contention due to a wreck at Talladega. He dove into a hole that did not quite exist and tipped Daniel Suarez into Kyle Larson.

That leaves Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski as the only playoff contenders still running damage free with a handful of laps remaining.
Oct 15 - 6:22 PM

With a lap of 190.412 mph, Chase Elliott will line up alongside his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the front row for the Alabama 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway

The No. 24 team has one of the best plate programs in regard to single laps, but the race is made up of 188 trips around the track—and Elliott has had difficulty staying out of trouble at Talladega in the past.
Oct 14 - 6:06 PM

For the third time in the past four weeks, Chase Elliott came up one position shy of a win. He finished second in the Bank of America 500.

Elliott was bitterly disappointed after losing the lead with two laps remaining at Dover International Speedway last week, but he earned the most points in NASCAR Fantasy Live. He had another stellar week at Charlotte Motor Speedway and has become a place-and-hold driver.
Oct 8 - 4:55 PM

Chase Elliott led 138 laps and dominated a long run in the final stage of the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, but he was unable to navigate traffic as well as Kyle Busch and was passed with two laps remaining.

On pit road, Elliott took the blame for the loss. He has a tendency to get down on himself after making mistakes and fantasy owners should keep that in mind as the playoffs progress.
Oct 1 - 5:49 PM

With an average speed of 155.518 mph, Kyle Busch posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Busch came up one position short of winning the pole. Starting on the outside of Martin Truex Jr., Busch has the potential to use that long-run speed to lead laps, He is expensive in salary cap games, but likely well worth the investment.
Sep 30 - 3:06 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in Happy Hour for the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway with a speed of 157.363 mph.

Elliott enters the weekend with a three-race streak of top-fives and solid practices only enhance his odds of repeating. In most salary cap games, he is moderately high—but not so much that he is prohibitively expensive. Elliott is one of the best values this week. Elliott also had the second-quickest, 10-lap average.
