Greg Biffle

There were ups and downs at times, but 2010 was a solid year for Biffle. He picked up two wins, 19 top-10s and finished sixth in the final standings. Biffle can be as streaky as any driver, but as the past few years suggest, he is a top-10 driver when all is said and done.

Biffle has finished seventh or better in the final standings in each of the last three seasons. During that stretch, he has averaged 10 top-five finishes and 17 top-10s while compiling a 14.3 average finish. He has posted better all-around numbers than he is given credit for, as well. In the last three seasons, Biffle has posted an average finish of 17.2 or better at all four track types on the schedule.

There is no doubt that he is at his best at the intermediate tracks. Fifteen of his 16 career wins have come at the intermediate tracks. That being said, he has shown in recent seasons that he can be a top-15 driver at every track type. He is always going to go through hot and cold stretches, but as long as he is performing at his current level, he is going to be a staple of the Chase.

From a fantasy standpoint, Biffle is an elite option at the intermediate tracks in all fantasy formats. Martinsville is the only short track where he struggles, and he needs to improve his numbers at Infineon. That being said, he is a safe No. 2 option for teams in "Draft and Play" leagues. He will carry a fantasy team at times, but the rough patches he experiences now and then prevent him from having first-round value.
