Kevin Harvick (DK: $11,500): Coming into this week, anyone could make a decent argument to why fading Harvick at this price tag at Bristol would make sense. However, after the first practice that option went out of the window since Harvick will have to start in the rear of the field on Sunday afternoon after the crash in the first practice. Bristol is one track where we really need to focus on two main things when building lineups, dominator points and safe floors for each driver. Harvick carries both this weekend, even though it seems far fetched that he’ll end up being a dominator starting that far back, its very easy to see him being one of the top overall scorers this week from place differential alone. Over the last six races here, Harvick owns a driver rating of 112.5, which is the highest of any driver in that same time frame. During those last six races he has five top ten finishes and three top fives. He’ll add in some fastest laps and could challenge for the lead in the later parts of the race if he can make his way through the traffic. This season, Harvick has been one of the best drivers in some of the best equipment in the sport, so no one should worry about the quality of the back up car this weekend. We expect Harvick to be one of, if not the highest owned drivers of the weekend, but with virtually no downside and the safest floors on the slate we feel confident in locking him in as our Must-Have of the race.
