Racer X Fantasy: High Point Preview

Racer X Fantasy High Point Preview

Racer X has partnered with MotoDynasty to bring you Fantasy Motocross. We'll be offering cool weekly and series prizes; dynasty play; private leagues that just you and you're buddies can play in; weekly fantasy previews; and weekly podcasts all focused on fantasy.

How to Play

1.) Sign-Up: This will be the easiest decision you've made all week. Go to motodynasty.racerxonline.com to sign up. 

2.) Play Options: There are two different ways to play Racer X MotoDynasty Fantasy Supercross. 

A.) Dynasty play is where you test your skills against thousands of others to win weekly and series prizes.

B.) Create or join a private league with your buddies, co-workers, family, the dude at the local watering hole—whoever. You can talk smack on your way to the league title.

They Were Who We Thought They Were

Below are the stats for the top ten of dynasty points earned for Muddy Creek. In short, the more points a rider earned, the more accurate the user base played them. Take Jeremy Martin for example. He finished first. Most of you predicted this. Therefore, he garnered the most points. Or take Shane McElrath. He finished just outside the top ten in twelfth, but most users predicated this, and he scored the sixth-most points last weekend.

Check out the rest of the top ten. This is a great indicator of who is a predictable fantasy racer.

Top Picks

250 Class

Adam Cianciarulo | Last week: 4th
AC is poised for a moto win. Not sure he gets it this weekend, but keep an eye on his progress.

Jordon Smith | Last week: 11th
Speed is never in question with the GEICO rookie. His consistency isn’t on par yet, but top ten is a lock.

Zach Osborne | Last week: 9th
Does Osborne bounce back from last weekend? I think so. Top five is a solid pick.

Hayden Mellross | Last week: 13th
The Aussie was the top privateer a week ago. While another top fifteen may be a stretch, top twenty is a must.

Jace Owen | Last week: 19th
The privateer had flashes in his first outdoor race of 2015. Keep an eye on him going forward. He may sneak into the top ten at some point.

 

450 Class

Jason Anderson | Last week: 3rd
Anderson is finding his stride in his rookie season. Another podium could be a challenge, but top five is a good pick still.

Fredrik Noren | Last week: 12th
Noren has been hampered by a knee injury, but top ten is still a good pick.

Ryan Sipes | Last week: 11th
The former race winner pulled double duty last weekend—racing Muddy Creek on Saturday and a GNCC on Sunday. He’ll race again at High Point and is worth a look for the top ten.

Wil Hahn | Last week: 14th
Hahn will eventually land inside the top ten. It may happen this weekend.

Jesse Wentland | Last week: 20th
The privateer is a top-twenty lock. Top fifteen isn’t out of the question either.

 

Sleeper Stats

Picking riders 1–20 can be an overwhelming task. But, when you nail that top-twenty pick no one else had, it’s oh so sweet. Each week we’ll run down the previous week and then give you a few guys to keep an eye on.

250 Class: Glen Helen

Rider: Hayden Mellross | 13th

Points Scored: 642

Users that picked him top twenty: 44

 

450 Class: Glen Helen

Rider: Tony Archer | 18th

Points Scored: 1,870

Users that picked him top twenty: 78

 

Ones to Watch

250 Class

Alex Frye: Look for the rookie to bounce back from a tough debut. Top fifteen is a good pick.

 

450 Class

Gannon Audette: He was nineteenth overall in his first race last weekend. Look form him to improve a few spots at High Point.
