Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Jeff Gordon
Denny Hamlin has more Homestead wins than the other championship contenders and will start on pole in Sunday’s season finale.
C.J. Radune notes Brad Keselowski won at Martinsville Speedway earlier this season and would complete the sweep with a win this weekend.
C.J. Radune analyzes this week's race at Dover where Kevin Harvick is a two-time winner.
C.J. Radune says Kyle Busch should be an easy fantasy selection this week because of his past dominance at Indianapolis as well as his terrific driving last week at Darlington.
Daniel Hemric started 11th and finished 12th at Michigan in June. A repeat of that finish would be a good payoff for fantasy players taking him with this week's bargain price tag.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gordon retired at the end of the 2015 season.
Despite Gordon’s season-long feud with Clint Bowyer, that boiled over shockingly at Phoenix, and his horrendous bad luck, the Hendrick Motorsports star still had a very good season all-in-all. Gordon managed to pick up two wins, including the emotional victory in the season finale at Homestead and finished a respectable 10th in the final driver standings. The good news is that this is about as tumultuous as it can get for a driver in a given year. The new season and clean slate should be a welcome sight for the driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet. Gordon and crew chief Alan Gustafson have combined for five wins and 36 Top-10 finishes the last two seasons, but have yet to really challenge for a championship together. That could change in 2013. Of the upper tier drivers in the sport, Gordon easily has the most upside and will likely come at a much cheaper price than the rest on fantasy racing draft day.
Gordon finished 11th in the final 2005 points standings, and won four races despite his poor season. We expect Gordon to challenge for yet another championship in 2006 as he and new crew chief Steve Letarte get their chemistry established.
