Stenhouse Jr. is coming off a ninth place finish in New Hampshire and it was one of his best performances of the entire season. However, he looked lost last year at the Brickyard. He finished 25th and was constantly struggling to keep the car on the bricked track.

4. Kurt Busch

Busch isn’t exactly a superstar, but he normally has value in deeper formats. Unfortunately, has never done well at Brickyard. KB has just one top-10 finish here in his last nine races. Busch will struggle all afternoon and won’t be worth drafting this week.

3. Carl Edwards

Edwards shockingly has one top-10 finish in the last five races in Indianapolis. He can be one of the best drivers in the world, but he won’t be worth gambling with this week in the Midwest.

2. Denny Hamlin

Hamlin has just one top-10 at Brickyard in his last five races. He has notoriously struggled on the bricks and has an average finish of 16.88. It would be better to avoid DH altogether this week.

1. Joey Logano

Logano was a hot commodity earlier in the year, but he has since cooled down. He is coming off a miserable 40th place finish in New Hampshire, and he has only one top-10 finish in his last three races this year. Even worse, he also has just one top-20 finish in his last three races in Indy. Let someone else deal with J-Lo this weekend.
