Comments: NASCAR Picks for Dover

Article: FedEx 400 Practice Recap: Drivers to Watch

Fantasy owners should have known it was going to be a long night at Charlotte when a rope from the sky fell and started damaging cars before the sun even went down. From there, a rash of engine issues and multi-car wrecks decimated the field. It got so bad that Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ended up 14th despite being two laps down. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that things will get easier this weekend when the series heads to Dover International Speedway. The concrete oval has been known to cause some carnage of its own, leading to the "Monster Mile" nickname. With walls on both sides of the track and a narrow pit road, staying out of trouble is easier said than done at Dover.

For fantasy owners, tackling the "Monster Mile" is also easier said and done. Outside of a select group of drivers, there just aren't many consistent options to turn to, which makes filling out fantasy rosters a serious roll of the dice. Heck, even some of the most consistent drivers at Dover have some really bad finishes on their resume. Of course, Fox is suspending the use of their overhead camera for this weekend's race, so there is at least one less thing to worry about this weekend.

  1. Jimmie Johnson, Lowe's/Kobalt Tools

Tough picking this week for sure! Don't know whether to take Kenseth or Johnson as my top dog this week.
