Fantasy tip: As a driver with Dale Earnhardt, Inc. in 2008, Smith won the Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year Award without a top-10. However, he qualified for all and finished in all 34 races they entered. In 2009, Smith ran a part-time schedule with Furniture Row Racing, but they plan to attempt every race this season, hoping to improve on last year's lackluster 27.7 average finish. Avoid him on draft day.
