2014 Predicted Points Finish: #9

He is coming off a year when a back injury forced him to miss four races completely and took a huge toll on his production when he was behind the wheel. His 4 top-5s and 8 top-10s were both the fewest of his career, and his 21.0 average was the worst of his career. While Hamlin was arguably the biggest fantasy busts of 2013, an offseason to get his back right should be all it takes to bring a return to form. Keep in mind that from 2009 to 2012, Hamlin won a combined 18 races and had at least 14 top-5s three times. At full strength, there is no reason he shouldn't return to his championship-caliber form.
