Week 2 of the XFL season kicks off on Saturday afternoon, and after recently, things are searching for for the newleague Sure, there were some kinks in Week 1, however in general the quality of play was quite strong, even with numerous backup QBs pushed into action. Obviously, there is still going to be a good deal of unpredictability from a DFS and season-long fantasy viewpoint this early in the season (returning QBs, playing time up for grabs, and so on), and you’ll see that in the rates on both DraftKings and FanDuel as you make your lineup choices.

Week 2 XFL DFS Chooses: Quarterback

Phillip Walker, Houston Roughnecks vs. St. Louis Battlehawks ($10,600 DK, $23 FD). Walker was the star of Week 1, impressing with his capability to strike receivers deep downfield. Even more noteworthy was his capability to avert the pass rush. He consistently made himself little to make protectors miss out on and after that uncorked a pass 30 yards downfield. His 4 goal passes will be hard to match, and we will learn today if the St. Louis defense is as excellent as it looked recently or if the Dallas offense was just bad. Walker is the highest employed quarterback on both websites, however if he can come close to duplicating his Week 1 efficiency, he will be worth it.

Cardale Jones, D.C. Protectors vs. New York City Guardians ($10,200 DK, $21 FD). Jones didn’t dissatisfy in Week 1 with 235 yards and 2 goals. He looked stiff at times, however in general he was relatively outstanding. There is a bargain of skill on this offense, and if the line can provide him a little more time today, Jones might be even much better. The Guardians defense was “bend, don’t break” recently versus the Vipers, however Jones is a far better quarterback than Aaron Murray is. I called him safe recently on the Fantasy Alarm XFL podcast and on Sirius/XM, and I am a substantial Jones backer once again for Week 2.

Landry Jones, Dallas Renegades @ Los Angeles Wildcats ($ 9,500 DK, $19 FD). The XFL definitely desires Jones (knee) to prosper, and it looks like he will have the ability to play in Week2 He does not have the most skilled pass receiver group in the league by any stretch, however there are some excellent weapons out there. DraftKings has him as the fifth-most pricey quarterback, while on FanDuel he is 4th. My rather conservative nature has me avoiding a person who missed his first game when we do have what seem much safer choices, however at the exact same time the Los Angeles defense was the worst in the league recently and cut its finest gamer. Jones isn’t the worst option, however you won’ t discover him in much of my lineups.

Jordan Ta’amu, St. Louis Battlehawks @ Houston Roughnecks ($ 8,900 DK, $20 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Josh Johnson, Los Angeles Wildcats vs. Dallas Renegades ($10,400 DK, $18 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Week 2 XFL DFS Chooses: Running back

As anticipated, running back wasn’t a position of focus in the XFL in the opening week. A couple of teams were run heavy, and some hardly attempted to run at all. Luckily on each website you are just required to play one running back, although on DraftKings you can likewise utilize one in a FLEX area. The rates on the 2 websites is extremely various. FanDuel appears to be much more reactionary to the first week’s action, while DraftKings is a little more conservative based upon last weekend’s games.

Matt Jones, St. Louis Battlehawks @ Houston Roughnecks ($ 5,900 DK, $18 FD). Jones was the workhorse of the opening week and the only running back to get 20 brings. It appeared that he would lag Christine Michael in brings, however Michael had a hard time and Jones produced 85 hurryingyards He is handling a knee injury and is bring a doubtful tag, however reports are that he was at least a minimal individual in Thursday’spractice Today he deals with the Roughnecks, who didn’t quit a ton of hurrying yards in Week 1 however did enable 3 runs of more than 10yards There is still a little issue that Michael might do much better today and take some work, however he in fact had unfavorable fantasy points recently. If Jones is active he is an outright take on DraftKings.

James Butler, Houston Roughnecks vs. St. Louis Battlehawks ($ 6,300 DK, $19 FD). If you listen to the Fantasy Alarm Week 2 XFL podcast with Dan Malin, you understand that we are both reluctant on Butler today. He did not enter into recently at the top of the depth chart, and he had simply 9 brings. He was targeted two times and scored on both a reception and rush. It simply feels like Houston isn’t going to be a big running team thinking about the history of head coach June Jones, and Butler’s wage skyrocketed compared to recently. He is on maybe the most explosive offense in the league, however specifically on FanDuel, his price makes him dangerous till we see Houston regularly use him.

Darius Victor, New York City Guardians @ D.C. Protectors ($ 4,100 DK, $16 FD). Here we are once again with another pass- catcher out of the backfield. Victor was noted behind Tim Cook on the depth chart entering into Week 1, however it was Victor who had 9 reaches Prepare’s 4. Victor brought a little additional worth with 3 catches for 25 yards. This one is a little bit of a danger since it would not be a shock if Cook got more brings today, and the Guardians just ran the ball 13 times with the running backs in Week 1. Since his wage on FanDuel isn’t actually in line with the production he had last week, he is more of a DraftKings play.

Lance Dunbar, Dallas Renegades @ Los Angeles Wildcats ($ 4,600 DK, $15 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Nick Holley, Houston Roughnecks vs. St. Louis Battlehawks ($ 4,800 DK, $14 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Week 2 XFL DFS Chooses: Pass receiver and Tight end

You won’ t discover Austin Proehl here. I like him, however his wage took a substantial jump for a person we anticipated absolutely nothing from recently. Too abundant for my blood. I wish to see him do it once again.

Nick Spruce, Los Angeles Wildcats vs. Dallas Renegades ($10,400 DK, $20). This might be the getting star of theleague He was handling a backup quarterback recently, however Spruce was open whenever a play was required. He captured brief passes, he captured deep passes, he captured passes over the middle. He captured whatever. Ideally he will have the exact same chemistry with Josh Johnson today, however it appeared like practically every pass went to Spruce recently. He is the highest employed receiver on both websites (connected with Austin Proehl on FanDuel), however I believe he will be worth every cent. I completely anticipate him to be the most targeted receiver in Week 2.

Mekale McKay, New York City Guardians @ D.C. Protectors ($10,200 DK, $16 FD). It took McKay a little time to start, however he had the ability to make a couple of plays. Truthfully, he is just actually a play on FanDuel, as DraftKings in some way has him as the second- most pricey receiver. McKay definitely revealed the big play capability we understood he had, however the Guardians are among the more well balanced offenses in theleague McKay has the sensation of a touchdown-dependent man, however might discover one versus a Protectors defense that quit 3 passing goals to a weaker offense recently.

Eli Rogers, D.C. Protectors vs. New York City Guardians ($ 9,700 DK, $17 FD). This is my preferred pass receiver in theleague It isn’t that Rogers is some amazing receiver that belongs in the Pro Bowl in the NFL, however he definitely revealed some capability to get open on Sunday, and he has sure hands. He has among the much better quarterbacks in the league, and with Rashad Ross on the other side of the field, defenses can’t concentrate on him. He isn’t super inexpensive on either website– and it will be difficult to work him and Spruce into a lineup– however Rogers is another man that I feel is a near certainty for excellent production on a weekly basis. He is almost a should-play at his rate on FanDuel.

Daniel Williams, Tampa Bay Vipers @ Seattle Dragons ($ 7,600 DK, $19 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Flynn Nagel, Dallas Renegades @ Los Angeles Wildcats ($ 5,200 DK, $16 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Jordan Smallwood, Los Angeles Wildcats vs. Dallas Renegades ($ 6,900 DK, $18 FD). Analysis readily available to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Others to think about: Web Cam Phillips (Houston Roughnecks vs. St. Louis Battlehawks), De’Mornay Pierson-El (St. Louis Battlehawks @ Houston Roughnecks), more readily available for Fantasy Alarm customers!
