Expert tip of the week:
Players with teams decimated by "Big One" crashes at Daytona will be happy to know that as unpredictable as it was, Phoenix is the opposite. Last year, seven drivers earned top-10s in more than 50 percent of their short, flat track starts, led by Brad Keselowski, who swept the season. Get more tips from Dan Beaver's fantasy blog.
Last year's top three finishers:
1. Denny Hamlin
3. Greg Biffle
