Multiple drivers have reported that the new aerodynamic package is creating extremely loose conditions. Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart complained they get lose when approaching a car. Greg Biffle pulled up behind Kasey Kahne at the halfway mark in the second practice for the Pure Michigan 400 and caused him to wiggle and push up the track with the same condition.
The same tendency was noted at Indianapolis Motor Speedway a few weeks ago. If passing becomes increasingly difficult, starting position will be more important than ever in fantasy NASCAR handicapping. Aug 15 - 8:57 AM

Greg Biffle spent less than 15 laps among the top five, but one of them was critical. He advanced from 14th to fifth as cars around him were forced to take fuel and he was scored in that position at the end of the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway.

This was Biffle’s first top-10 in the past nine weeks and only his second top-15. It is too soon to jump on his bandwagon, but momentum has shifted with less stimuli.
Aug 2 - 8:17 PM

Greg Biffle has earned one top-10 in his last nine attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he made the most of it. The No. 16 finished second to Carl Edwards in the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

That position was earned through a fuel mileage gamble and is one of only three top-10s in his last 23 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Biffle should finish in the mid-teens range at Kentucky Speedway in the Quaker State 400 and should only be used if he fits the final niche on one’s roster.

In addition to rolling out a backup car, Greg Biffle was forced to change his engine for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. No matter where he qualifies, he will have to start from the back of the pack.

Starting position is meaningless on plate tracks and Biffle’s ability to get to the front is not in question. He has not finished among the top 15 in his last seven Coke Zero 400 attempts, however, and cannot be considered a favorite this week.
Jul 3 - 5:59 PM

Greg Biffle was expected to be the primary driver at Roush-Fenway Racing after the loss of Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth. The organization has struggled, however, and the No. 16 has only two top-10s this season.

One of these strong finishes came in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and was partly aided by strategy. Biffle is at an uncomfortable level in most salary cap games based on his potential, and so long as he continues to finish worse than 20th on average, he is a difficult fantasy pick.

Greg Biffle needs to turnaround his season and that could happen this week at Michigan International Speedway. His third and fourth victories on this track came in his last five starts with back-to-back wins in fall 2012 and spring 2013.

Two of Biffle’s last three attempts ended in top-10s and he may be happy to repeat. At his salary cap and popularity, a top-10 would make him a solid value.
Jun 11 - 4:37 PM

This week Greg Biffle scored a top-10 qualification effort for the first time in the last five races at Dover International Speedway. His speed of 159.483 mph landed him on the inside of row four in seventh for the FedEx 400.

That is not necessarily good news for his handicap because he qualified in the top 10 three consecutive times in 2011 and 2012 with a best result of 11th. Given last week’s runner-up finish after starting fourth, Biffle will probably challenge for a top-10 this week, however.

Greg Biffle scored his best result of the season when he crossed under the checkers second in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In pre-race coverage, we predicted this would be his first top-10 on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway and he beat that projection by a significant margin. Several spots were earned because of his fuel mileage gamble, however.

This is Biffle’s first top-five since last August at Pocono Raceway and it signals a general improvement at Roush-Fenway Racing. He still needs to be evaluated on a weekly basis until he strings several top-15s together.
May 24 - 10:49 PM

Greg Biffle earned his season-best starting position in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600. He posted the fourth fastest time and rolls off the grid from the outside of the second row.

This is the second consecutive week Biffle earned a season-best starting position. Last week he started seventh at Kansas Speedway in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400 and earned his best result on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway. With renewed confidence, he could finish better than 12th this week and earn his second top-10 of 2015.
May 21 - 9:45 PM

Greg Biffle won the first segment of the Sprint Showdown and will advance to Saturday night’s all-star race.

This will be his 15th consecutive appearance in the exhibition, but his odds in the main event might not be great. His last three starts all ended 15th or worse with an average finish of 18.7. He finished fifth in 2011.
May 15 - 8:23 PM

Greg Biffle entered the 2012 Hollywood Casino 400 with two wins and a current seven-race, top-10 streak. Kansas Speedway was reconfigured for that race and Biffle has not scored a top-10 since.

Biffle has been steady in his last three starts on this track with results ranging from 13th to 16th. Given the struggles he has experienced this season, his salary cap is relatively modest. Another low teens finish would make him a good—but not great—value.
May 8 - 12:11 PM

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Geico 500. His top speed was 197.929 mph.

Biffle was more than two mile per hour slower than teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the first practice session, but that was a factor of the size of the draft, plus when and how the No. 16 caught it.
May 1 - 5:28 PM

Greg Biffle spun after his first lap of qualification for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. NASCAR allowed him to put on a fresh pair of scuffed tires, but he could not overcome the mistake and will start Sunday’s race 33rd.

Bad luck and trouble continues for Roush-Fenway Racing. Until they reverse their fortune, fantasy players should avoid Biffle until his salary cap drops to a bargain level.
Apr 17 - 9:37 PM

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.

At his level of experience that is not enough to make him fantasy relevant. He has only one top-15, but could be on the cusp of scoring several top-10s in a row once the switch flips at RFR.
Apr 5 - 6:06 PM

Greg Biffle was responsible for the first caution flag at Auto Club Speedway. He slapped the wall in the first practice session and may have dropped parts or fluid onto the track.

Biffle has struggled at Auto Club to post more than two consecutive top-10s during his career. Last year an overheating problem contributed to a 40th-place finish and he needed a better start to the weekend. He will probably not have to roll out a backup.
