My numbers say Chase Elliott offers top DraftKings value at Texas I today. (photo courtesy nascar)

Here are my DraftKings driver points and price/point predictions for tomorrow’s Texas I race. To predict how many DraftKings points each driver will score tomorrow, I plugged my driver rankings for tomorrow’s race into my projection model, and the starting lineup. Then, to calculate each driver’s price/point, I simply divided each driver’s price by their predicted points.

The below table lists all drivers running tomorrow, and it’s sorted from lowest price/point to highest. If you’re on a small-screen device, scroll the table horizontally with a finger drag to see all the columns.

The table:

    For the drivers with 0.xx projected, not sure if that’s even possible. The least amount of points they can accumulate would be 4, as a 40th place finish nets them that.

    Good catch, it’s probably NOT possible. I hand tweaked those values because they were negative scores, and a negative price/point is nonsensical. That was an experiment, so I’m not committed to it. Will think on it.
