The Likely Suspects: Pick carefully, my friends, as selecting drivers who qualify in the top 10 starting position is key. More than 70 percent of the time that's where the winner will be. I am looking at these likely suspects this week: AJ Allmendinger, Carl Edwards, Martin Truex Jr., Jimmie Johnson, the Busch Brothers, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski.

My 2 Cents: The key to succeeding in fantasy games is not to go with the emotional picks. This week that means don't be seduced into picking road-race ringers. Instead look for Sprint Cup regulars with open wheel experience. This week's no-brainer selection is a two-way tie between AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch. My next picks are: Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards, Kurt Busch and Jamie McMurray. I will round out my team with Justin Allgaier and David Gilliland.

My final four: Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, AJ Allmendinger and Justin Allgaier.

Points to ponder:
  • Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing are tied for the most wins at Watkins Glen in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with six each.
  • AJ Allmendinger leads all active drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in average finishing position at Watkins Glen with a 7.833.
  • Jeff Gordon leads all active drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in laps led at Watkins Glen with 262 laps led in 22 starts.
  • 21 of the 32 (65.6 percent) NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Watkins Glen have been won from a top-five starting position.
  • 23 of the 32 (71.8 percent) NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Watkins Glen have been won from a top-10 starting position.
  • 19 different drivers have won at Watkins Glen International in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, led by Tony Stewart with five wins; followed by Jeff Gordon with four.
