2017 Consensus Fantasy NASCAR Driver Rankings

Last week I published my early 2017 Fantasy NASCAR driver rankings and with so many changes looming for the 2017 season (new aero package, SHR to Ford, driver changes, etc.), I admittedly had trouble confidently slotting my Top 30 drivers.

As a result, I reached out to respected FNP analysts Kyle Wiseman (@KWiseman33) and David Rochester (@DR_FNP) for their opinions as well to see where we all agree and, more importantly, differ.

As always, remember that this is a projection of Fantasy Racing value only and these rankings do not reflect picks for the 2017 championship or which 16 drivers will qualify for the Chase.
