Week 3 XFL DFS Selects: Quarterback

Phillip Walker, Houston Roughnecks @ Tampa Bay Vipers (DraftKings: $11,500; FanDuel: $23). Walker is costly on both websites this weekend– and for excellent factor. We have actually seen him score 32 and 23 points, respectively, on DraftKings up until now this season, and versus this Vipers defense he must install a minimum of 3 goals. Walker is likewise hurrying the ball a bit so it’s just a matter of time prior to he discovers completion zone with his legs, which might quickly occur this weekend. Tampa Bay’s defense hasn’t been horrible on paper, however they have not truly been challenged by Matt McGloin and Brandon Silvers, so we can presume Walker must persevere and post a minimum of 23 DFS points.

Cardale Jones, D.C. Protectors @ Los Angeles Wildcats (DraftKings: $10,800; FanDuel: $20). I dislike his rate on DraftKings, however I like the $20 tag on FanDuel for the Sunday slate. Jones has actually shown to be rather trustworthy in money games, and this is perhaps his best match to date versus a Wildcats defense that parted methods with their protective planner after onegame The Wildcats have actually enabled 62 points on 759 yards through 2 weeks, so Jones must surpass the 19-20 points he’s taped the past 2games If he does not, then he’s not a fantastic worth on DraftKings, however the match is great, and Jones is trending towards 300 yards death, which would be a good reward on DraftKings if he arrives.

Jordan Ta’amu, St. Louis Battlehawks vs. New York City Guardians (DraftKings: $10,100; FanDuel: $21). Ta’amu continues to sign up the DFS points with his limb. Given, the Battlehawks were playing from behind recently, however Ta’amu returned strong worth with 37 pass efforts and 8 hurrying efforts. Furthermore, he handled to get a hurrying goal. On 17 hurrying efforts up until now, he has 109 hurrying yards and a goal. He’s not Lamar Jackson, however he is the hurrying quarterback of the league at the minute, and while we are seeing a substantial spike in the cost, he’s worth every cent. The Battlehawks are a big preferred versus a New york city team that was a little exposed recently. Ta’amu remains in line for another big game today.

Week 3 XFL DFS Selects: Running back

Luckily, DraftKings just needs you to play one running back every week. It’s not an enjoyable position to select and all the identifiable names are on the table, however I’ll attempt not to list a lot of.

James Butler, Houston Roughnecks @ Tampa Bay Vipers (DraftKings: $8,500; FanDuel: $17). Butler has actually been relatively goal reliant up until now through 2 weeks, however that will hold true with a lot of running backs in theXFL He has 20 overall touches through 2 games with 3scores He’s captured all 4 of his targets. In what appears to be the league’s most explosive offense, Butler is getting work and producing. I particularly like the match today since there’s the possibility that game circulation might benefit him if the Roughnecks go out to a substantial lead like lots of suspect. They might take their foot off the gas and run the ball with Butler who has actually emerged out of no place as Houston’s lead running back. As Ryan Hallam and I discussed prior to the Week 1 podcast, June Jones might simply as quickly keep tossing the ball. Butler’s income of $8,500 isn’t bad for a man with 3 goals up until now, however it’s a little a gamble based upon his touchdown-per-touch rate.

Matt Jones, St. Louis Battlehawks vs. New York City Guardians (DraftKings: $7,500; FanDuel: $16). Jones is nursing a small knee injury, however he played through it recently to reward his fantasy owners. Jones has actually been the only true work horse running back up until now. He has 37 overall brings and hasn’t discovered completion zone on the ground, although he has actually captured a goalpass Jones will square off versus the Guardians, who were shut out last week by the Protectors and enabled over 100 hurrying yards. If you think about how frequently he’s touching the ball even with Jordan Ta’amu taking some brings, Jones is still priced fairly.

Donnel Pumphrey ( DraftKings: $7,000; FanDuel: $13) and Jhurrel Pressley (DraftKings: $6,800; FanDuel: $15), D.C. Protectors @ Los Angeles Wildcats. Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Lance Dunbar, Dallas Renegades @ Seattle Dragons (DraftKings: $6,600; FanDuel: $15). Recently it was the Cameron Artis-Payneshow He went off on the Wildcats to the tune of 99 hurrying yards, 5 catches, and a set of goals. It’s quite unexpected how involved CAP has actually remained in the death game, as he’s captured all 9 of his targets through 2games Dunbar is still getting passing-down work out of the backfield. He’s captured 11- of-12 targets, and while he hasn’t discovered completion zone yet, he’s yielded good DFS returns. If you do not desire to pay up for Artis-Payne, the rate isn’t horrible for Dunbar.

DeVeon Smith, Tampa Bay Vipers vs. Houston Roughnecks (DraftKings: $6,300; FanDuel: $16). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Darius Victor, New York City Guardians @ St. Louis Battlehawks (DraftKings: $4,700; FanDuel: $12). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Week 3 XFL DFS Selects: Pass receiver and Tight end

Camera Phillips, Houston Roughnecks @ Tampa Bay Vipers (DraftKings: $11,100; FanDuel: $21). Phillips has actually become among Phillip Walker’s preferred targets. In addition to the 4 goals in 2 games, Phillips has 19 targets. The yardage hasn’t existed for him, however the benefit is substantial if he’s going to get even one goal today. It’s an extremely significant cost on DraftKings, however $21 is extremely affordable on FanDuel and in a passing pleased offense like Houston, he’s worth targeting.

Nelson Spruce, Los Angeles Wildcats vs. D.C. Protectors (DraftKings: $10,900; FanDuel: $20). Spruce is priced a little under Phillips this weekend, however he’s shown to be simply as trustworthy. Through 2 games, Spruce has 17 catches on 24 targets for 192 yards and a set of goals. He’s posted this production with 2 various quarterbacks. On DraftKings, he’s installed 24 and 27 points, respectively, so he’s discovering methods to install numbers even without discovering completion zone (a la Week 1). The drawback is the match versus D.C. this weekend, however a minimum of it’s a homegame The bright side for Spruce is that he must get a healthy quantity of targets, however the leading 2 receivers are a little dangerous this weekend provided their expenses.

Eli Rogers, D.C. Protectors @ Los Angeles Wildcats (DraftKings: $9,700; FanDuel: $15). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Kahlil Lewis, Houston Roughnecks @ Tampa Bay Vipers (DraftKings: $9,100; FanDuel: $18). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

DeAndre Thompkins, D.C. Protectors @ Los Angeles Wildcats (DraftKings: $5,700; FanDuel: $19). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Donald Parham, Dallas Renegades @ Seattle Dragons (DraftKings: $5,300; FanDuel: $16). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Nick Holley, Houston Roughnecks @ Tampa Bay Vipers (DraftKings: $4,400; FanDuel: $15). Analysis offered to Fantasy Alarm customers!

Reece Horn, Tampa Bay Vipers vs. Houston Roughnecks (DraftKings: $4,200; FanDuel: $15). I choose Horn’s rate on DraftKings a little more thanFanDuel It’s increased in current weeks, however even at $4,200 he’s still an actually excellentplay He has 8 catches on 13 targets for 93 overall yards this season, and in a match where the Vipers must be routing a fair bit, Tampa’s death game must be rather active. He’s still a gamble and not as safe for money games as I may state that Holley is, however Horn’s an excellent dart include GPPs. The news breaking late Wednesday that Seantavius Jones had actually been waived might produce more chances for people even more down the depth chart.

Week 3 XFL DFS Selects: Defense/special teams

D.C. Protectors @ Los Angeles Wildcats (DraftKings: $4,700). The Protectors are in some way not the most pricey D/ST on the slate. That honor goes to the Roughnecks today, and it’s rather confusing. The Protectors are merely squashing the remainder of the league ondefense They have 6 takeaways, 4 sacks, and 3 protective goals through 2games If they’re going cross-country to Los Angeles, it’s a difficult defense and perhaps the best money game play even. Josh Johnson didn’t truly illuminate the stat sheet recently and he may still be a little hurt. I anticipate more of the very same up until now from the Protectors.

Dallas Renegades @ Seattle Dragons (DraftKings: $4,200). Defenses versus the Dragons have posted 22 and 14 points, respectively, in 2games They merely do not have fantastic quarterback play with 3 interceptions through 2 games from Brandon Silvers. Do not get me incorrect, the Protectors are worth the money in money games, however Dallas is a respectable GPP play if this defense can score like the Vipers and Protectors have actually done over the last 2 weeks.
