DraftKings NASCAR Lineup: Daytona 500 Sleepers & Bargain Picks

As is typically the case with restrictor-plate races, the Daytona 500 always has an element of unpredictability. Though it's often an elite driver who ultimately earns the checkered flag (the last five winners of the Daytona 500 have all finished at least third in a Cup Series in their career), it's usually a wild ride to get to that point. Wrecks are expected, cautions are frequent and lead changes are the norm. Last season, for example, all four of the restrictor-plate races were among the Top 8 in total lead changes. This makes for an entertaining race, but in terms of DFS, it means that sleepers and value picks have even more potential. Starting position is vitally important for NASCAR DraftKings (scoring is based on place differential), and the lineup won't be finalized until Thursday night, so this is still a preliminary look, but you can click through the gallery for a rundown of some of the best potential bargains for this year's Great American Race. Just know that if any of the following drivers end up starting near the front, they are much less appealing. You can also click here for more DFS analysis. (Getty)
