Update: Talladega
By itself, nothing is predictive at Talladega, but practice and qualification can tell you which drivers have a little more swagger to their step.

Officially Tony Stewart finished sixth after starting 14th in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but Ty Dillon ran all of the practice, qualified the car, and ran most of the race. Stewart will be credited with the finish in the points and all fantasy games, however, since he started the No. 14 Chevrolet.

Notably, the only mistake made by this team all afternoon was by Stewart in the pits. He was too fast exiting during a green flag stop, which cost the No. 14 a lap to the leaders. He was given the Free Pass on the first caution of the day, made the driver change to Dillon, and allowed the part time driver plenty of time to make up for lost time.

When Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun into Kasey Kahne and Michael Annett, he was the first driver to wreck, but was far from the last. By the end of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, 87.5 percent of the field had been impacted by crash damage.

This was one of the most chaotic races at Talladega fantasy owners have seen in quite some while. Winning one’s league this week required a lot of luck.

Trevor Bayne was in a position to win the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway in the closing laps, but he got shuffled from the draft and finished 10th.

He led 22 laps near the end of the show, however, and banked some points for his fantasy players. More importantly, this is his second top-10 in the last three races and his worst result in the past four was a 17th at Richmond. That makes him fantasy relevant heading to a track type that was once very kind to Roush-Fenway Racing.

Ryan Blaney earned his third top-10 of the season in the 10th race of 2016. He finished ninth after starting the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway 19th.

Blaney has been lagging behind fellow rookie Chase Elliott and did so again this week. Elliott finished fifth, but that has not made Blaney a bad value. He is less expensive in most salary cap games and proved that he is capable of running with the leaders when he stays out of trouble.

Kurt Busch has finished 12th or better in his last four Talladega SuperSpeedway races. This week he was eighth after starting the Geico 500 18th.

While Busch has been a good value, he has rarely been a great one. It has now been 19 races (or a decade) since he last finished among the top five on this track. Busch is still seeking his first restrictor-plate, superspeedway win.

Clint Bowyer finished seventh in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after starting 34th. This is his fifth top-10 finish in his last six starts on this track.

Notably, it is also his second top-10 of the season after finishing eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway. It is too soon to form a bandwagon for the driver and team, but momentum has been gained with less success.
