When it comes to racing at a Superspeedway, things can be a little more complicated in the NASCAR DFS world. For starters, since the track is larger, there are less laps in the race, so therefore there are less chances to earn dominator points.
With more drafting going on, there can also be many lead changes, and there can also be many more chances for wrecks as well.
Place differential could potentially be your best way to earn points in this race. Look for drivers that have the ability to gain some ground from the back of the pack.
Races at Talladega are always very unpredictable, so there could be a lot of surprises here at Sunday’s race. Let’s take a look at some DFS picks for Sunday’s Geico 500 at Talladega.
Joey Logano – $10,200

Logano has led numerous laps here, and In his last five races, he has finished in the top five in four of them, including a victory in 2018. Logano should earn you some big points.
Brad Keselowski – $9,600

Kyle Busch – $9,300
Busch is winless on the season, so he’ll be pushing hard to win his first checkered flag. Busch has been near the top, as he has finished in the top-five on six different occasions. Busch doesn’t have the best track record here, but he’s due for a victory. He is starting in the third spot, so he has an opportunity to get you some points by leading some laps, and he could just walk away with a victory here.
