The Likely Suspects: Hendrick Motorsports and Roush Fenway Racing drivers are the traditional masters at Phoenix, however with so much on the line anything can and will happen! I recommend focusing on these drivers this week: Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Newman, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski.

My 2 Cents: To say this week's race will be drama-filled is quite the understatement. No matter who is on your fantasy team this week, it will be memorable. My no-brainer pick is last week's winner Johnson, followed closely by Newman. My next picks are Harvick, Greg Biffle, A.J. Allmendinger; and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. I will complete my team with Danica Patrick and Justin Allgaier. If you have Logano and Keselowski starts left (I don't), swap them out for Allmendinger and Stenhouse Jr.
