2017 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Kenseth was consistent last season, just not as excellent as he would have liked. The Joe Gibbs Racing star posted two victories, but he only came up with eight Top-5 and 19 Top-10 finishes when all was said and done. The veteran driver was good enough at the end of the season to post a fifth-place finish in the standings, but it really didn't reflect the lack of speed that the No. 20 team suffered most of the season. Kenseth has the potential to improve on these numbers in the upcoming season, but a number of variables will have to fall into place. He and crew chief Jason Ratcliff are going to have to work hard to get more speed and better handling out of their cars, and at that point some momentum and consistency can develop. A return to 2015 numbers (five wins and 12 Top-5 finishes) is possible but will demand a lot of work.
