DraftKings Driver Values: Daytona I, 2016

Here are my DraftKings driver points and price/point predictions for today’s Daytona 500. To predict how many DraftKings points each driver will score today, I plugged my driver rankings for today’s race into my projection model, and the 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 with a finger drag to see all the columns:
