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.
Biffle should only be used by fantasy players if he fits a specific niche on their roster. Otherwise save him for Kansas, Bristol, or Michigan where he has his three-best career-average finishes. Feb 28 - 11:54 AM

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.

Biffle has a personal three-race, top-10 streak going with a best of second in 2013 and a worst of sixth in 2012. Most of his bad results came after accidents, so he should be a strong threat if he stays out of trouble.

Greg Biffle scored five consecutive top-10s as part of a remarkable run to make the Chase, but his momentum stalled immediately afterward. He finished 19th in the Federated Auto Parts 400 and earned only one top-10 during the Chase.

Both good and bad momentum can carry over from one season to the next, but with significant changes coming at Roush-Fenway Racing after dropping from four teams to three, Biffle should be able to hit the reset switch easily.

Roush Fenway Racing has announced its 2015 crew chief lineup.

Greg Biffle’s No. 16 Ortho Ford will again be headed up by Matt Puccia, who has led Biffle to ‘Chase’ appearances in each of his three full seasons at the helm. "We have seen proven results with Matt Puccia and Greg Biffle and we will look to continue to build on that moving into 2015," said Jack Roush.-Roush Fenway Racing

Greg Biffle earned three consecutive victories at Homestead from 2004 through 2006, but he has earned only one top-five in the seven races that followed.

The good news is that his latest top-five came two years ago, but he has not had a lot of success dialing in the 2014 chassis so it is unlikely he will earn another.

Greg Biffle was as strong as most of the Chase drivers in the Eliminator round. He finished ninth in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k, which was his third consecutive top-15 this season.

Since he was not in Chase contention, that meant that he was a better value in most games and that positive trend should continue for one more week.

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.

Nearly 60 percent of those starts ended in top-fives and his average since fall 2008 has been a respectable sixth. He has struggled off and on this year and might fly under most fantasy players’ radar screens, which makes him one of this week’s best differentiators.

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.

Biffle qualified 22nd in the spring 2013 STP Gas Booster 500 and finished ninth. This spring, he started just outside the top 10 in 11th and fell to 18th, so he is one driver for whom starting position on this bullring seems to be unimportant.

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.

With as much bad luck as Biffle has faced throughout the year, he was due a strong finish. Teammate Carl Edwards crossed under the checkers fifth and all three Roush-Fenway racers finished on the lead lap. It is too soon to say they have reversed their fortune, but they are heading in the right direction finally.

Greg Biffle’s struggles continued for a second week at New Hampshire. He lost two laps early and managed to finish only 16th in the Sylvania 300 after scoring a 23rd in the opening Chase race at Chicagoland.

Biffle currently sits 14th in the standings and will need to have a solid run at Dover in order to advance into the Contender round. He finished 39th in this spring’s FedEx 400, but swept the top 15 on that track in 2012. He should be watched in practice, but will not be a favorite unless he posts quick 10-lap averages in both Saturday sessions.

Greg Biffle spun off turn two at New Hampshire in final practice. He managed to keep his Ford off the wall and sustained minimal damage after going through the grass.

At the time, Biffle was 20th on the chart and undoubtedly looking for additional speed. The team now knows which direction not to take.

Greg Biffle will drive chassis RK-922 in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta. This car was last raced at Indy where it finished 13th.

Biffle qualified 18th for Sunday night’s contest, which is his worst starting spot in four races. He started 19th at Indy and climbed to 13th, but one week later he overcame a 25th-place qualification effort to finish fifth at Pocono in a different chassis.

Greg Biffle enters the weekend with a four-race, top-10 streak this season dating back to the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono. His previous two attempts at New Hampshire and Indy ended in top-15s.

Biffle should be considered a favorite to keep his top-15 streak alive, but he could be a long shot to finish in the top 10. His last three efforts at Atlanta ended in top-15s, but he has not finished better than 11th there since spring 2010.

Greg Biffle finished 10th in the Irwin Tools Night Race and completed a sweep of the top 10 by Roush-Fenway Racing. Teammates Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Carl Edwards finished sixth and seventh respectively.

Roush had been on a sizeable slump in the past several races, but uniformly strong runs at Michigan last week and Watkins Glen suggest this organization has put that behind them. For Biffle, this was the fourth straight top-10 and sixth consecutive top-15 this season.

Ortho and its complete line of home, lawn and garden pest control products will serve as the anchor partner on the No. 16 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry driven by two-time NASCAR Champion Greg Biffle in a multi-year deal.

Ortho makes its debut on the No. 16 car next week at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and will appear on the car for two more races this season before becoming the anchor partner in 2015. Ortho’s parent company, Scotts Miracle-Gro teamed with Roush Fenway from 2005 until 2011, teaming for 12 wins and 14 poles across all three of NASCAR’s major series. Mark Martin drove the Scotts Ford F-150 to six victories in the NASCAR Truck Series, while Carl Edwards captured the 2007 NNS Championship carrying Scotts colors.-Roush Fenway Racing
