2014 Predicted Points Finish: #20

On the plus side, Menard has averaged a top-20 finish in four straight seasons, proving he can stay out of trouble and deliver decent results. On the other hand, he has already reached his ceiling as a driver, and he has never had double-digit top-10s in a season and never leads many laps. For fantasy leagues that only take into account driver points, Menard's consistency makes him an asset. In all other formats, his lack of upside limits his value.
