Comments: NASCAR Picks for Dover

Is it too early to call the Chase a three-horse race? As the Cup Series heads to Dover International Speedway this weekend for the third race of the Chase, point leader Matt Kenseth has already amassed an 18-point cushion, and fourth-place Carl Edwards is 36 points back. Sure, second-place Kyle Busch and third-place Jimmie Johnson are within striking distance, but the rest of the title contenders are going to need Kenseth to run into trouble to have a realistic shot at catching up.

From a fantasy standpoint, the early separation in the playoffs is really just a microcosm of the entire year. After all, Kenseth, Busch and Johnson have combined to win 15 of the 28 races this year with Kenseth owning a series-high seven wins and Busch and Johnson ranking first and second in top-five finishes. There is no reason to expect the three drivers that have dominated the series all year to slow down now that a title is on the line. Going forward, all three of these drivers should form a nice starting point when building fantasy rosters.
