Fantasy owners have come to expect more from Roush-Fenway Racing than they have seen this year. Greg Biffle made a comment at Auto Club about the organization dying a slow death. He is missing only a little each week, however, and has finished on the same lap as the leaders in all but one race.

In 21 previous starts at Atlanta, Biffle has scored 10 top-10s and another four top-15s, but he rarely finds the very front of the pack. Biffle has only three top-fives, the best of which was a third in 2005.
Greg Biffle is back in the Sprint Unlimited lineup this year after missing 2014’s edition of the race, but he should be able to immediately get back up to speed.

The AAA 500 should be one of Greg Biffle’s best opportunities to score a late-year top-five and be one of the best fantasy values in nearly every game. In his last 12 attempts on this track, his worst finish was a 12th and his best was a victory in spring 2012.
Greg Biffle was probably not particularly happy with his qualification effort that landed him 21st on the Goody's 500 grid, but that is about average during his last three starts at Martinsville.
Greg Biffle failed to advance to the Contender round of the Chase, but he may have had one of the biggest impacts on who advances to the Eliminator. In an accordion-style accident on lap 86 he clipped Jimmie Johnson and sent him into first Justin Allgaier and then the inside wall. Johnson and Allgaier sustained heavy damage. Biffle escaped with minimal destruction, remained on the lead lap, and finished 15th in the Hollywood Casino 400.
