Comments: NASCAR Picks for Talladega

Break out your lucky charm of choice. The Cup Series is heading to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend, and thanks to the horsepower-robbing restrictor plates used at the track, multi-car wrecks are just waiting to destroy fantasy lineups. Plain and simple: Talladega is on par with Daytona as the biggest fantasy headache on the schedule, and there just isn't a fool proof strategy to handle the chaos that can ensue at the track. That being said, there is nothing wrong with minimizing the potential damage, particularly in leagues that cap the number of times each driver can be used, including Yahoo! leagues.

I highly recommend relying heavily on sleeper options rather than big names. Every driver on the track has an equal chance of getting caught up in a wreck; on the flip side, just about every driver that survives the wrecks has a chance at getting a solid finish. In other words, a lineup of stars and a lineup of underdogs have an equal chance of producing a solid day. With that in mind, there really isn't a big need to risk wasting starts from the top drivers in the series.
