Trey Williams - SEA ($4.2K): Last week was a quiet one for the Dragons running back but this week will be a rough go. Going up against the top offense in the Roughnecks, they will need to try and keep pace and might look for more out of the dual-threat runner in Williams. He could see around 15 total touches and get back to his first three games production.

Nick Truesdell - TB ($4.7K): Making his return to the Vipers after missing out on the last two games, they need to get the ball moving through the air a bit more. He was the main focus in the offense those weeks going for 78 yards and 7 catches. Expect him to have 4 receptions for 50 yards and this time he gets the first touchdown of his XFL career .

Saeed Blacknall - LA ($3.6K): Big-play threat, again, at a cheap price. If the Wildcats can get him a few more targets this could smash the value just like he did last weekend. Last week he hauled in 1 catch for 42 yards and a touchdown. This weekend's matchup with the Vipers is one to get him some more work. He should see 4 catches for 70 yards and another touchdown.
