We are nearly halfway through the XFL season already and injuries are a top story again this weekend. With that being the case, the value plays are out there on some of those teams missing stars. The key is finding the right ones. Good luck this weekend and enjoy the games!

Darius Victor - NY ($14): The backfield in New York may seem to be a timeshare but Victor is the one getting the most work as of late. He received most of the carries last week and is a threat in the receiving game. Expect the workload to be around 20 carries and 3 catches this week.

Rashad Ross - DC ($14): Over the last two weeks it seems like the Defenders have gotten away from what makes Ross the most dangerous. That weapon is his speed and ability to maximize efficiency. The focus for them is getting Cardale Jones back on track, who really struggled in week 4. This matchup against the Battlehawks will be an interesting game that could turn into a high-scoring bout.

Sam Mobley - HOU ($12): It seems as though the Roughnecks will be thin at the wide receiver set again. That doesn't seem to make a difference to their offense though and they continue to have the next man up mentality. He might not see the most work during the games but that should not scare you away. He is a threat to take even just one catch into the end zone.
