21) Marcos Ambrose | No. 47 Little Debbie Toyota | JTG Daugherty Racing

Pros: Ambrose had a strong 2009 campaign, his first full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He scored four top-fives and seven top-10s in the 36 races, finishing 18th in points. His best finish of the season was second in the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at Watkins Glen, no surprise that it came on a road course, but two other top-fives were scored on ovals.

Cons: Ambrose was inconsistent in 2009. While that is excusable for someone in their rookie season, it is still a concern. He scored four top-fives, but he also racked up 17 finishes that were outside of the top 20.

Fantasy tip: You cannot ignore Ambrose on a road course, but by the end of the season he was leading on ovals as well. The Tasmanian could make the Chase for the Championship with just a small step up in oval performance in 2010. Ambrose is a high-upside No. 3 racer for fantasy owners.
