Green, Yellow, and Red Flag STARTS for Pocono

*THIS COULD CHANGE TOMM* watch on Twitter if I make any changes I will tweet it out.

GREEN

Kyle Busch ($9700) – I came very close to putting him in the yellow because of his start spot.
Kyle Larson ($9900) – Hard to fade maybe the best driver in the series starting 7th isn’t bad if he can finish better.
Martin Truex ($10300) – At some point, he’s going to disappoint but starting 2nd he’s going to be good again.
Kevin Harvick ($9600) – Starting 12th should be solid all day and decent +/-
Brad Keselowski ($10100) – Has struggled lately but he’s pretty good at Pocono
Joey Logano ($9100) – Has also struggled lately but the salary of $9100 is too low for him at this track.
Jimmie Johnson ($10000) – Starting 19th fire up the 48 in your lineups he should move quickly
Denny Hamlin ($8900) – He’s very good at Pocono got his first win here his rookie season and starting 18th is too enticing.
Clint Bowyer ($8600) – After a bad week he needs to bounce back I love the starting spot.
Chase Elliott ($9300) – Has been very good here in 2 starts and starting 25th is a bargain I see him in the top 5 or 10 and maybe battling for the win.
Kasey Kahne ($7700) – Starting 26th should be good to use him I think top 15 is likely.
Dale Earnhardt Jr ($8500) – Swept the 2 races here a few years ago has to go to back for engine change but the official starting spot of 28th is still too good to pass up I see a top 10 this weekend possibly
Chris Buescher ($6600) – this guy has really impressed me this year and starting 29th he should give real good salary relief and who know’s could sneak another win out.
David Ragan ($5100) – hasn’t practiced too well but if you’re looking at a punt he’s about $900 cheaper then he should be.
Landon Cassill ($5300) – Same as Ragan he’s here bc he’s underpriced and could be a good PUNT
Cole Whitt ($5700) – A little pricey starting 32nd but every time I put him in the yellow he ends up running well his salary and starting spot should help roster choices.

YELLOW

Matt Kenseth ($9000) – Starting too high unless you think he will get out front and put some dominator points up otherwise he’s a risk.
Jamie Mcmurray ($8100) – Same as Kenseth would need to get some dominator points ( which are limited this week) to make this start spot worth it.
Ryan Blaney ($8400) – starting too high after 2 bad races could really surprise and get up front and lead but for now I’m being cautious.
Kurt Busch ($8200) – I know I know he won this race last year but this car hasn’t been as competitive as last season and I just don’t see him getting much bonus to help you.
Ryan Newman ($7600) – I could see using him In a GPP dart I think his ownership will be low because of starting spot.
Paul Menard ($6400) – Starting way too high for me when he’s currently 25th in owner points (team strength) ideally would want him in the 20’s
Austin Dillon ($7500) – 2 weeks ago he proved me wrong on gas gamble but as long as that doesn’t happen again he’s in the yellow for me could he move up? Yes but be careful
Erik Jones ($8300) – before today I was promoting Erik as a surprise winner this weekend but qualifying and practice so far are proving me wrong.
Michael Mcdowell ($5000) – this team has gotten so much better this year but I’m afraid I can’t use him starting this high up if he was 31st he would be the start of the week.
Daniel Suarez ($7900) – I have no CUP history on him which makes him tricky just use with caution is my best advice starting 14th and ranked 26th in practice.
Bubba Wallace ($6200) – I really like this kid and I want to use him but starting 16th in this car probably is a little too high.
Ricky Stenhouse ($7200) – I wanna use him but you never know if he will finish or not definitely a GPP play
Trevor Bayne ($7000) – I like him this week but I can’t promise he can get to where you need.
AJ Allmendinger ($6900) – This is my sneaky play this week he’s always decent here starting 21st I think he can move up and with the right strategy could win you a GPP
Danica Patrick ($6100) – Was on winning roster last week I really wanna use her but at 24th I need her in the 30’s use at your own risk.
Ty Dillon ($6800) – almost pulled it off last week I like his starting spot but he’s a rookie just be careful.
Jeffrey Earnhardt ($5200) – I was going to put him in the red but at this price and what he did last week I think you can squeeze him in and hope for best.

RED FLAG

Matt Dibenetto ($5400) – I wish he was starting farther back
Corey Lajoie ($4500) – cheapest player on the board and I still don’t understand why he’s had good runs this year only to fall apart at the end
Gray Gaulding ($4800) – Just a little worried being a rookie that he might not finish.
Reed Sorenson ($5500) – This car had a great run with Chastain a few breaks and Sorenson could get to top 25.
Cody Ware ($4700) – Guaranteed at least 5 points starting 38th can only move back 1 spot could use him as a PUNT to fit studs in.
Derike Cope ($4600) – Starting last guarantees 5 points but I don’t know how that car survives all day.
