David Gilliland | No. 38 Taco Bell Ford | Front Row Motorsports

Gilliland's Cup career that began with an improbable victory in the Nationwide Series, and he is still clinging to a spot in the sport's top series. He ran 32 races in 2010, compiling a 29.3 average finish. He made a majority of the starts for Front Row Motorsports, and despite the organization downsizing in 2011, Gilliland is expected to compete full time in 2011.

Although it's not set in stone quite yet, Gilliland appears to one of FRM's full-time drivers this year. While the organization isn't exactly a force in NASCAR, it does have enough sponsorship to allow its drivers to run entire races. Case in point, Gilliland had just two DNFs last season.

As long as things go as planned for Gilliland, his career numbers put him somewhere in the top 30. While his fantasy value is minimal in most formats, he deserves to be drafted in the fourth round of Draft and Play leagues. In an eight-team league where four drivers have to be started each week, Gilliland should end up being a legitimate No. 4 option for a team.
