Fantasy League Standings after Kansas
Just four races remain before we crown a NASCAR Champion and a Fantasy League Champion. Kyle Larson is out but Eric and James battle on.
For the first time since New Hampshire, Eric was able to score more points than James. After this week, it’s virtually deadlocked at 1,398 (James) and 1,394 (Eric).
James’ team was wounded badly following the mechanical issues of Larson. He was aided by the strong runs of Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott.
Eric’s team was dominant when it came to the stages. Martin Truex, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Ryan Blaney all put up huge numbers – each driver over 40 points. The damage could have been worse if not for the Erik Jones accident that crippled the bottom of Eric’s roster.
- Eric and James each picked 8 playoff drivers, draft style.
- The total points earned by a driver throughout the playoffs will contribute to the team’s total.
- Most points earned wins.

After the round of 16 all three players are tied. Points will resume after the Round of 12 is complete.
Round of 12 highlights
James, Eric and Todd all had Larson as the champion. With Larson out there will be no champion points awarded. It comes down to the final four drivers. The only difference is Eric with Jimmie Johnson making it to Homestead.
