DraftKings Driver Values: Bristol II, 2015

Here are my DraftKings driver points and price/point predictions for tonight’s race at Bristol. To predict how many DraftKings points each driver will score today, I plugged my driver rankings for tonight’s race into my projection model, and Friday’s qualifying results. Then, to calculate each driver’s price/point, I simply divided each driver’s price by their predicted points.

My points projection model is a work in progress, so don’t take the below info as gospel. Still, I think it can provide big-picture help when crafting DraftKings lineups.

Note: the below table lists all drivers running today, and it’s sorted from lowest price/point to highest. If you’re on a small screen device, scroll the table horizontally to see all the columns:

    Thanks so much… DK is fun and I DO NOT bet much…5-10$ but still very much learning. Which contest is the best to maximize returns? I have been doing the 3 man and 20 man.

    I’m actually not sure yet which contests offer the most value–I need to look into that, too! I’m sure someone has figured it out.
