It is time for some more XFL action! We are back for week 2 and ready for some great matchups. This week is full of major players missing games and major changes for some teams. It also seems as if DraftKings is getting used to where some players are being listed. Now it’s time to really find the top-of-the-line “value” plays.
Nick Holley – HOU ($4.8K): Holley is still currently listed as a running back on the site, but he will actually be starting at a wide receiver. Last week, he hauled in four receptions for 50 yards. He seems to be a top target for Phillip Walker, who had himself a day last weekend. This is a sneaky way to set up a team with value in mind. Finally, this will be the game of the weekend. We might finally get a game that hits the over for the score.
Adonis Jennings – LA ($3.0K): Injuries hit the wide receiver group of the Wildcats a bit this weekend. It looks like two members of the group could be out for this match up with the Renegades. With McBride being one of those players hurting, this opens up a chance for Jennings to get more work. In week one, he had just one catch for ten yards. He will score more than that this weekend, for sure.
Dontez Byrd – SEA ($3.8K): The Dragons will be a very interesting team to watch this weekend. They are dealing with a set of injuries as well, the biggest being starting quarterback, Brian Silvers. They will also be without wide receiver Kasen Williams in this matchup. The best way to look at this is the chemistry the two players stepping in might have with each other. BJ Daniels will be filling in at quarterback, and he may have developed some trust in Byrd from working with him over the past two weeks. Another big factor in this game is that both defenses have struggled. Could this be another high-scoring affair?
