Jamie McMurray has not yet earned a top-15 in 2018 with his best result of 16th coming in the wild card Daytona 500.
Last year, McMurray was one of, if not the most consistent drivers in the field in the opening races so this has come as quite a surprise for fantasy owners. It’s time to stop waiting for his fortune to reverse and the No. 1 should be left in the garage until McMurray earns at least two consecutive top-15s. Even then, he should only the started on tracks that best suit his driving style. Mar 21 - 1:39 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the second fastest lap in Friday’s practice for the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway with a speed of 137.762 mph.

McMurray was comfortably atop the leaderboard until his teammate Kyle Larson posted a lap that was .098 seconds faster in the final moments of practice. With both Chip Ganassi Racing teams at the top of the leaderboard, that underlines the overall strength of this organization.

In addition to driving his regular No. 1 Chevrolet in Sunday's Cup Series Ticket Guardian 500, Jamie McMurray will pilot the No. 42 DC Solar Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) DC Solar 200 at ISM (Phoenix) Raceway on Saturday.

McMurray will make his first NXS start in over four years (143 races), his last start came in Sept. 2013 at Richmond. He has 187 career NXS starts on his resume with 68 top-10 and 31 top-five finishes including eight series victories. His last NXS victory was in 2010 at Atlanta. McMurray's only NXS win with Chip Ganassi Racing was in 2004 at ISM Raceway. In 12 previous NXS starts at ISMR he has led 47 laps and has four top-10 and one top-five finish.-CGR

Jamie McMurray appeared to cut a tire with 91 laps remaining in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and slapped the wall.

McMurray was running just outside the top 10 at the time. Last year, he had one of the most consistent records on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he has struggled in the first two races this season. He should be done for the day and will retire in about 36th.
Mar 4 - 5:41 PM

Jamie McMurray’s 19th-place finish last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway is the third consecutive time that he has finished outside the top 15 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

This is significant because McMurray earned eight straight top-15s on this track type at the beginning of last year. He struggled considerably at Kansas Speedway last fall and finished 34th, then was 18th at Texas Motor Speedway. With a third poor result, fantasy players can identify this as a trend.

Jamie McMurray was the first driver to sustain damage in last weekend’s Advance Auto Parts Clash, which confirms that he is crash prone on restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

McMurray has sustained some crash damage in 21 of the 32 races he has run on the big tracks since rejoining Chip Ganassi Racing, which equates to 65.6 percent of the time. When he stays out of trouble he is a decent value, however, with a pair of wins in that same span including the 2010 Daytona 500.

Jamie McMurray will make his fifth consecutive and 12th overall start in Advance Auto Parts Clash (The Clash) at Daytona International Speedway (DIS) on Sunday afternoon Feb. 11.

The Clash is a 75-lap, invitation-only lineup of Monster Energy Cup Series (MENCS) drivers that consist of pole winners from the 2017 MENCS season, former Daytona 500 pole winners and 2017 MENCS Playoff contenders. The starting field for The Clash will be determined by random draw during a special fan event. McMurray is a two-time runner-up (2009 & 2011) in the season-opening exhibition race at DIS.-Chip Ganassi Racing

DC Solar is moving to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) for the 2018 season as a primary partner with both Kyle Larson (No. 42) and Jamie McMurray (No. 1).

In addition to partnering with Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) in the MENCS, DC Solar will continue to be seen in the XFINITY Series (NXS) for several races on the No. 42 Chevrolet with both Larson and McMurray behind the wheel. McMurray will compete in the NXS for the first time since 2013. He has not run multiple races in one season in the series since 2011 when he competed in six races. He is an eight-time winner in the NXS, with his most recent win coming at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 2010 driving for JR Motorsports. McMurray enters the 2018 season on the heels of three consecutive trips to the Playoffs, the most recent of which saw the veteran driver advance to the second round.-CGR

Jamie McMurray finished sixth in the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, which snapped a four-race streak outside the top 15.

McMurray was one of the most consistent drivers throughout the season, but when things went badly in round two, he lost his momentum. Now he needs to score another top-10 so this team can head into the offseason with a positive program.

Playoff contender, Jamie McMurray got involved in an accident at the lap-27 mark as a group of Chevrolets headed for pit road.

McMurray got turned by Erik Jones as he slowed for the pits. He was hit multiple times and will finish in the high 30s. He has advanced through the playoffs via consistency to this point, but without a win in Kansas next week, this could be the end of his championship hunt.

Jamie McMurray finished fifth in the Bank of America 500, which was his first top-five in the past nine races.

That might have been his first top-five in a while, but he has been one of the top values regardless. In his last nine efforts, he has not failed to score a top-15 and consistency is often more important than raw power. Of course, it’s nice when the two can be combined.

As predicted on Rotoworld in the Weekend Update, Jamie McMurray scored yet another top 10 in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway. He crossed under the checkers ninth.

McMurray has eight top-10s and 14 top-15s in his last 18 attempts—a rolling half season. He qualified modestly in 26th and that means he added 17 place-differential points to his total.

Jamie McMurray finished 10th in the Taste of the Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

That has been the common theme for McMurray all year. He rarely challenges for the win, but his consistent finishes in the high single digits and low teens makes him one of the most attractive fantasy options in the field.

Jamie McMurray finished 10th in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, which is his 13th top-10 in 25 races this season.

McMurray has another seven top-15s and a 17th. He has been the most consistent driver this season and while he may struggle to make the second round of the playoffs he is going to continue to be a great fantasy value.

Jamie McMurray posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a speed of 126.604 from laps three through 12.

Long run speed is critical on a rhythm track like Bristol. McMurray enters the race with six consecutive top-15s, but no top-fives. Look for another finish in that same range.
