Fantasy tip: A driver for Richard Petty Motorsports by way of merger from Yates Racing, Menard will enter his third full-time season in the Sprint Cup Series with only with one top-10 finish since 2007. Last season, his most successful stretch came between April and May in which he finished three of five races in 13th place (twice) or 15th place (once). After that, Menard would only have one such top-15 result the rest of the season. Without a career average finish of 20.0 or better on any Cup track, pass on Menard for the time being.
