Due to illness, Michael Annett will not drive the 46 car tonight at Bristol. Justin Allgaier will take his place. Annett will therefore earn zero DraftKings points tonight per DraftKings’ Position Eligibility rules:

“Driver eligibility determinations and decisions around driver inclusion into the player pool are at the sole discretion of DraftKings. If a driver withdraws, gets substituted out before the race, or does not end up participating in the race for any reason, that driver will receive zero fantasy points.”

If you play Yahoo’s fantasy NASCAR game, you’ll like this: Jeff Gordon now appears in Group C and will apparently be available when he drives the 88 car at Indianapolis this week and Pocono next week. Grab him while you can!

Note: If you don’t see him listed, make sure you have “Show Only Entered Drivers” un-checked.

Thanks to PJ at Fantasy NASCAR Preview for the tip.

Fantasy NASCAR Alert: No Ryan Blaney at Daytona II

I play Yahoo’s fantasy NASCAR game, and earlier this week I was stoked to see Ryan Blaney listed on the Daytona II entry list. I rate Blaney relatively high at the plate races (so far), so he would’ve made an excellent start saver in Group C.

Alas, rain washed out qualifying yesterday, and that bumped Blaney out of the race because as a part-timer, he lacks owner points and race attempts. Which is how NASCAR sets the field when rain washes out qualifying.

Bottom line: If you’ve tabbed Blaney this week in your fantasy game(s), make sure you swap him out before the green flag waves.
