2017 Updated Fantasy NASCAR Driver Rankings

The team at FNP posted our first round of 2017 Fantasy NASCAR driver rankings back on January 9th. However, since that post went live, Carl Edwards made a surprise announcement that he was retiring from full-time racing, effective immediately.

As a result, I turned to Fantasy Racing analysts Kyle Wiseman (@KWiseman33) and David Rochester (@DR_FNP) once again to now account for Daniel Suarez, and not Edwards, piloting JGR’s #19 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series car this season.

What do you think of our consensus ranking of Suarez? Is he too high or too low? We invite you to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
