Hamlin is another household name starting outside of the top-20 (28) this weekend. However, he thrives coming from the back of the field and will find himself in the top-15 sooner rather than later.

Johnson will start this race in 10th in Richmond, but he has shockingly racked up just one top-10 finish in his last five trips. He is obviously worth a top-10 pick, but it may be better to grab a driver that has historically done better on this track.
