Jamie McMurray finished fifth in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was his seventh top-five of the season and his second of the past three races.

McMurray was one of the strongest contenders all season, but a lack of consistency and some bad luck early in the year kept him out of the Chase. He and 2014 Rookie of the Year teammate Kyle Larson should be immediate good values in 2015.

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Quicken Loans 500k. His top speed was 137.106 mph.

McMurray has not been one of the top-ranked drivers in pre-race coverage at Phoenix and he should be a better earner next week at Homestead, but in place-and-hold leagues, he could provide good value if he sneaks into the top 10.
Nov 8 - 3:25 PM

Jamie McMurray spent much of his day at Texas battling to stay on the lead lap or to regain the lap he ultimately lost. With a rash of cautions late in the AAA Texas 500, he got back on the same circuit as the leaders and finished fifth as chaos erupted during two green-white-checkered attempts.

That was McMurray’s second consecutive top-five on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. He finished third in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte and should be on fantasy owners’ radar screens at Homestead in two weeks.

Jamie McMurray set a new qualification record and won the pole for Sunday’s Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway. His fastest lap was 18.954 seconds, which converts to 99.905 mph.

McMurray had one of the fastest cars this spring before contact with Dale Earnhardt Jr. cut a tire and sent him into the wall. It is safe to say that he has unfinished business and wants to dominate the race. The track record of 100.201 mph was set by Joey Logano this spring during the first session.

Jamie McMurray scraped the wall in the first practice session for the Goody's 500. He made minor contact.

McMurray will not need to roll out a backup car, which is good news for his owners. He swept the top 10 at Martinsville last year and was running with the leaders when he was wrecked by Dale Earnhardt Jr. this spring.
Oct 24 - 12:30 PM

The Chip Ganassi Racing teammates Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson had the best 10-lap averages at Talladega in the first practice session for the Geico 500. McMurray went 196.586 mph from his third through 12th laps, while Larson went 196.061 from laps two through 11.

Look for these drivers to run together for as long as they can on Sunday. McMurray is the defending winner from last fall and Larson can learn a lot by following him.
Oct 17 - 4:51 PM

From the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono this August through the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire three weeks ago, Jamie McMurray posted eight consecutive top-15s. Then, he suffered bad luck at Dover and Kansas to finish in the 20s twice. He needed to rebound at Charlotte and did just that with a third-place finish in the Bank of America 500.

Since he failed to make the Chase, McMurray is one of the best values in most salary cap games. The series heads to Talladega next week, which is a site where McMurray won last year to become one of the most recent spoilers in the Chase battle. McMurray failed to qualify for the playoffs in 2013.
Oct 11 - 11:55 PM

Jamie McMurray was running fifth in the Hollywood Casino 400 with 10 laps remaining when he suffered a flat left front tire. He was forced to pit and fell to 25th in the final standings.

McMurray overcame contact with Jeff Gordon early in the race and climbed back into contention. He ran well enough to secure the fifth-best average running position of 8.29, but ultimately cost fantasy players a ton of points.
Oct 6 - 10:14 AM

Jamie McMurray had the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Hollywood Casino 400. He posted a speed of 188.740 mph from laps one through 10.

Only four drivers recorded 10 or more consecutive laps in that session, but McMurray also reportedly had one of the two quickest five-lap averages along with his teammate Kyle Larson. McMurray’s fastest single lap of 191.584 mph was second best, which gave him the best balance of speed and durability.
Oct 4 - 1:55 PM

Last week was the first time since Pocono in August that Jamie McMurray failed to crack the top 15. He finished 39th at Kansas this spring, but had four consecutive results of 16th or better in 2012/2013.

McMurray should be able to rebound this week, so fantasy owners should not worry about him. Another finish in the high single digits or low teens is well within reach and the Chip Ganassi Racing drivers should continue to be the best non-Chasers in the field. McMurray posted the sixth-fastest time in Friday’s practice session with a lap of 195.489 mph.
Oct 3 - 2:41 PM

Jamie McMurray is seeking his fourth consecutive top-10 at Dover. He finished fourth at Richmond, ninth at Chicagoland, and fourth at New Hampshire.

McMurray has not been overly stout at Dover recently and has not scored a top-10 there in his last 12 starts. He qualified fifth for the AAA 400, however, and earned top-15s in his last two starts on this track.
Sep 27 - 10:22 AM

Jamie McMurray scored his third consecutive top-10 at New Hampshire and his eighth straight top-15. Having missed the Chase, he is on a mission to prove he is as strong as the playoff contenders and this week’s fourth-place finish does just that.

It is difficult to argue with the success that he and teammate Kyle Larson are having. Both drivers carry their momentum forward and must be viewed as favorites to run well at Dover next week.
Sep 21 - 8:03 PM

Jamie McMurray narrowly missed the pole for the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire. His speed of 140.437 mph was 3/100ths of a second slower than pole sitter Brad Keselowski.

McMurray is the highest qualified non-Chase driver this week. He finished in the top 10 at Chicagoland and has something to prove by upstaging the Chasers. That makes him a great value this week, especially in salary cap games.
Sep 19 - 5:45 PM

Jamie McMurray has been consistent and occasionally one of the best values on short, flat tracks this season. In five races, he has two top-10s and another two results of 16th or better.

McMurray’s best finish came in the regular season finale Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond when he crossed under the checkers fourth. That was not enough to get him into the Chase, but is should get him onto quite a few fantasy rosters.
