Texas Motor Speedway is the home today for the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and the My Bariatric Solutions 300 has the green flag drop at 3:00 p.m. live on NBCSN. DraftKings has plenty of DFS contests going for the race, and we break down some of the best picks to round out your roster below, and you can set your lineups here.

Of course you’re allowed to take Kyle Busch or Chase Briscoe, but if you do you’ll need a few drivers that cost a bit less, so we look for some sleepers to help round out your roster.

Modest Sleepers

Justin Haley ($8,100)

He’s less than an average driver in terms of DFS salary, but has three-straight Top 10 finishes, two of them in the Top 5, and 10 Top 10’s in 15 races this season. Usually he runs over over $9,000 in salary costs, but you’ll get him cheaper today and still on a 1.5 mile track. Starts in 11th position today with plenty of room to grow.

Michael Annett ($7,700)

He starts on the pole today, has four Top-10 finishes in his last four races, with an average of 38.25 DFS points across those four outings. Annett is picking up 29.2 DFS points per outing this season, and with his current form and track position he should be able to score today.

Deep Sleepers

Jesse Little ($5,200)

The options get tougher down the board in this series where the separation on equipment is high, but Little has nine Top 20’s in his last 10 races. He finished 14th at Kentucky twice, once while starting on the front row and once while starting 15th. the 1.5 mile loop at Texas should produce similar results.

Kyle Weatherman ($5,100)

Take out his last race, and he’s significantly improved his track position every time in his last four. Started 32nd at Pocono and 27th at The Brickyard, but finished 15th in both events. Then started 30th and finished eighth at Kentucky in the first race. The second race at KS was a setback but he showed in the first one he can compete. And with the #74 car starting 33rd today, there’s plenty of room for growth and you can’t beat the price.
