Here are the Positional Rankings from for your XFL DFS Week 1 Lineups.



Now let me preface this by saying that NOBODY knows exactly how this is going to go this week. With some differences from the NFL, we could see some crazy scoring. Think NBA All-Star game or the ProBowl where very little defense is played. Let’s dig in!


XFL DFS Week 1



Cardale Jones

We all were able to see what he could do at Ohio State but he was just a bust in the NFL like a lot of these players that are playing in the XFL. He does have some very impressive arm strength that he could show off if he connects with his WR Rashad Ross. Depending on what site you play on, the pricing is quite a bit different.


Josh Johnson

You’ll probably remember this name from YEARS ago. He used to have the arm and the legs, but he’s an ‘old’ 33 year old XFL player. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is highly owned, I mean as highly owned as you can be depending on how many of you degenerates play some XFL this weekend. Make sure to pair him up with one of his WRs as well.


Other Players To Consider:  Connor Cook, Aaron Murray



Running Backs


Christine Michael


If I’m completely transparent with you, I thought he was still in the NFL. I saw what he could do in Seattle and wouldn’t be surprised to see him absolutely dominate these chumps. His price tag is going to set you back a bit, but let’s be honest, he could absolutely dominate with the XFL rules that are implemented to ramp up the pace of play and could lead to some high-scoring games.



Kenneth Farrow

Another name that was just recently in the NFL. The kid is only 26 and I would not be surprised if he and Michael have good season that they won’t soon be back in the NFL. We last saw Farrow in the AAF and he was a WORKHORSE. He ended up 2nd in rushing attempts, 2nd in carries, and 4th in TDs in the short stint of the AAF.


Other Players To Consider:  Elijah Hood, Cameron Artis-Payne, DeVeon Smith



Wide Receivers/TE/FLEX


Sammie Coates

He was supposed to be the next best thing in Steeler Nation when Martavius Bryant was hurt/suspended and JuJu was just a no-name rookie. That just didn’t happen. He didn’t have the best of hands when it came to the NFL, but he always had speed. His best season came in 2016 where we saw him get 21 grabs for 435 yards and 2 TDs. With his speed, and the rules in place to make this a fast-paced league, we could see Coates absolutely dominate in Week 1.




Rashad Ross

Ross is another name you might remember from the NFL if you happened to be a Redskin fan in 2015. I mean he only had 8 catches for 184 yards and a TD but if you watched the AAF you might also recognize the name. He ended up with the 2nd most yards and receiving touchdowns in the first 8 weeks of the league. He’s going to be super expensive in Week 1, but I would 100% pair him up with Cardale Jones this week.




Other Players To Consider:  Mekale McKay, Eli Rogers, Nick Truesdale
