Fantasy League Standings after Charlotte
We are four weeks into the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. James’ team has now scored the most points in three of those races. However, Eric’s team still leads the standings 997-960. Weekly wins don’t matter here. It’s all about the points.
James’ team was boosted by Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson. Elliott has been the big surprise for this team. Gobbling up points every week.
Eric’s team was really hurt by the issues of Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman. They scored the least amount of points of every driver in the pool (Alone with Kurt Busch).
