24) David Ragan | No. 6 UPS Ford | Roush Fenway Racing
Pros: There weren't many positives to take from 2009 for Ragan, which means he should be anxious to get 2010 underway. He is working with a new crew chief in 2010, Donnie Wingo. Wingo was on top of the box for Jamie McMurray in 2009 and knows the Roush Fenway Racing organization very well. Ragan scored two top-10s in 2009. He finished 13th in the standings in 2008.
Cons: After a promising 2008 season, Ragan floundered in 2009. Roush Fenway pared itself down to four cars in 2010, and Ragan may be the beneficiary of some extra attention as a result. He finished 27th in points in 2009, which was very disappointing following narrowly missing the Chase the prior season.
Fantasy tip: Keep an eye on Ragan as the season moves along. His performances in the middle races may show whether he is back to what we saw in 2008 or if 2009 was more representative of the truth. He is a third driver with strong No. 2 potential, but you are assuming a considerable risk by selecting him.
