Since his return from a leg and foot injury that caused him to miss the first 11 races, Kyle Busch has been inconsistent—to say the least. By virtue of those up-and-down performances, Busch’s daily fantasy value has also fluctuated.
This weekend, however, it’s time to trust Busch all over again. Even if you didn’t start him for his lone win at Sonoma, the odds of a second on Sunday look pretty favorable.
But why should you trust Busch? His win at Sonoma was great, but it was sandwiched between two sub-par performances with -32 points at Michigan and 23 points at Daytona. Even with an early wreck at Daytona, Busch is clearly trending up and heading to one of his best tracks.
With such a small sample size at Kentucky, it’s difficult to pick exactly which drivers will excel in The Bluegrass State. Luckily, Busch has been one of the most consistent racers with an average finish of 4.5 at Kentucky.
Brad Keselowski has more wins (2), but has been more steady at the track. More importantly, Busch has also led over 100 laps at Kentucky twice in four races and driven to Victory Lane once.
At over $3,000 less than Kevin Harvick, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver is a great addition to any lineup as a No. 1 or 2 driver. Pair him with another affordable driver like Keselowski or Jeff Gordon and expect great results on DraftKings.
