Moving Averages

Smooth out the ups and downs and find trends for Fantasy & DFS NASCAR projections

Moving Averages Use Loop Data Metrics

Although, 'Loop Data' has been available since 2005, it's only been in recent years these advanced stats have become a greater part of the NASCAR sports wagering conversation. Serious DFS and fantasy NASCAR players dig into these metrics and their driver projections benefit for it. Some Loop Data metrics are best aggregated by races at a specfic track, others are best tracked through the season to spot trends over the duration of a few or several races. The Moving Average display fits excellently this purpose. Several of these metrics also are used in the Loop Data Metrics Tools section. Traditional Metric Tools (using start and finish positions) are available in addition to these advanced metrics. Use the Fantasy NASCAR Statistics / Metrics Site Map to locate which tool(s) provide that.

I've NOT YET made these tools work for the Xfinity Series. BUT WILL once the full Xfinity data is brought into the database.
