Last week in this very same digital space, I liked Kevin Harvick as my top pick, because of his crazy laps led numbers recently at Dover. But I made Martin Truex Jr. my second pick.I kept the same order for my weekend picks, with the advice that if you could get both into your lineup, do it. I hope you could have worked it, because the 134.75 points for Truex in his victory was probably enough to overcome the -18.5 by Kevin Harvick, who had a track bar issue early in the race.Truex Jr. showed no signs of stopping his incredible run. He has averaged 106.9 DraftKings points per race over the past five weeks, going over 80 each week. He has finished as one of the top-two fantasy options each time out over that span.His recent performance is even more impressive when you consider that he, frankly, didnt enter the Chase that hot. In the four races before that run, Truex averaged 15.8 fantasy points per race, only once ranking better than 20th in fantasy points in a single event.How good has Truex been recently? Over just the past five weeks, he has raised his seasonlong fantasy points average from 48.0 to 58.2.Meanwhile, the only driver he trails in fantasy points average this season, Harvick, has gone the other way, dropping from 68.1 to 63.2 over the past four races, capped off by last weekends negative effort.Of course, we cant hold finishes solely against Harvick. One poor race was due to an unlucky pit road occurrence. Then the mechanical issue on Sunday led to another poor score. The other two of his past four starts were top-five finishes, although he only led eight laps combined in those four races.After a couple of weeks at one-mile tracks, were heading to a Saturday night race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, a 1.5-mile track. This is the most common track type on the schedule, and its especially common down the stretch this season, as four of the final seven races are on this sort of course.The spring race at the track is a 400-lap, 600-mile affair, which plays like a short track, in terms of playing for the laps led. Saturdays race will be 100 miles shorter, but you still get 334 laps for bonus points purposes.So lets crunch the numbers and figure out some early-week fantasy plays for Charlotte. Remember to check back in over the weekend for my final picks and fades.Im starting my team with:Im not here to shake up the world and surprise you with my picks. Im all about providing solid fantasy plays. Therefore, my top pick this week is Martin Truex Jr. All you need to know about Truex this season is that hes averaging 94.1 fantasy points per race on the 1.5-mile tracks. The second best is 61.9 points.Oh, you want another stat? The last time the Cup Series ran at Charlotte, Truex led 392 of 400 laps and won from the pole for 197 DraftKings fantasy points. Since 2005, when NASCAR began tracking all the stats used in DFS NASCAR, thats the highest-scoring day at a track measuring more than a mile.Keep an eye on these four:Kevin Harvick: Im sticking with Harvick despite the 15.5-point day in the last 1.5-mile track race, because it came due to unfortunate timing on pit road and not anything performance-related. In fact, Harvick kept pace with the leaders at Chicago but could just never get his lap back. Before that race, Harvick had finished in the top 10 at eight straight 1.5-mile tracks. He has also finished second in the past two Charlotte races, with five top-two finishes in the past seven races there.Jimmie Johnson: Johnson has been a less-expensive play and has shown signs of regaining his past form. After leading 95 laps combined in a 21-race span, Johnson has led at least 90 in two of the past three races, finishing in the top three in fantasy points in both of those starts. Sure, Truex dominated at Charlotte earlier this season, but he had 106 fastest laps, and Johnson, who finished third, had 72.Kasey Kahne: Im going out on a limb with Kahne, who has finished 10th or worse in the past five Charlotte races (28.5 DraftKings points per race) after finishing eighth or better in the previous five there (96.1 points per race). In his past five races overall, regardless of track type, Kahne seems to be starting to figure it out, with an 8.2 average finish and 44 points per race, ninth among all drivers but best among those whose average cost is under $8,500.Jamie McMurray: Im not sure where McMurray will be in salary, but chances are hell be a little lower than he was before his technical issues at Dover. McMurray has been a start/finish differential monster at Charlotte over the past three seasons, moving up a combined 61 positions from his start in the five races combined, good for 49.8 points per race. That point average places him fifth among all drivers from 2014-16 at Charlotte.Thats all I have for you for now.
