Richmond has always been a frustrating track for fantasy fans. Most of the big names struggle here and there are guaranteed to be a number of wrecks. To help you pick your team this weekend, here are the top-20 fantasy NASCAR drivers for the 2014 Toyota Owners 400.
Larson captured the pole for Richmond in the rain-shortend qualifying. Unfortunately, he doesn't have much experience in the front and will eventually find himself outside of the top-20.
Ambrose has three straight top-20 finishes and will be worth a late-round pick considering he is starting in 11th this year.
Logano has shockingly cracked the top-20 only once in his last five attempts in Richmond. He will start back in 17th and will be a very risky fantasy option this Saturday.
Biffle will unfortunately be starting back in 28th and will have a tough time making any noise this weekend.
After struggling at Richmond throughout his career, Truex Jr. has two consecutive top-17 finishes here.
Double-A seems energized about heading to Richmond this week. Almirola has already earned two top-10 finishes on short tracks this year and will be a great sleeper to look for.
In his last four races in Richmond, Busch has two top-10 finishes and two 28th place finishes. He will be the ultimate hit-or-miss option this Saturday.
McMurray finished fourth here last fall and showed he can compete at Richmond. He will start this year in seventh, so fantasy fans expect another top-15 finish from Ronald McDonald.
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.
Kahne will start in fourth this year, but he won't be worth reaching for considering his average finish of 17.95 on this track.
After a very slow start, Stewart has now cracked the top-10 in four of the last five races.
Gordon has three straight top-10 finishes in Richmond. He may be starting in 25th, but expect him to quickly make his way to the front of the pack.
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.
Edwards won the last race in Richmond and has cracked the top-10 in seven of his last eight races here.
Kenseth has three straight top-seven finishes at Richmond and will be a safe bet to crack the top-10 this week.
Bowyer has two top-two finishes at Richmond in his last three races, including a win in the fall race of 2012. He will start this year in third and will add another top-five finish to his Richmond resume.
Junior has finished inside the top-14 at Richmond in four straight trips, including a second apace finish in the 2012 fall race.
Keselowski will start in second, and considering Kyle Larson is sitting on the pole, the #2 car will quickly grab the lead this weekend. Keselowski is next to impossible to pass and will be able to do enough to make a impact this weekend.
Harvick has three career wins at Richmond. He will start this year in fifth and will be near the front of the pack all night long.
Busch has shockingly won three of the last four spring races at Richmond. He also has a 7.22 average finish here and will one of the best options to grab this weekend.
