Friday update: Stephen Guidry is out with a concussion. He saw the fourth-most wide receiver snaps last week. The official depth chart is hard to understand, as Eli Rogers and Andrew Jamiel saw more snaps than starter JaVonta Payton, who was inactive last week. Why he was inactive is unknown. Paxton Lynch is still listed as the starter as well.
Wednesday update: Good news! Pro Football Focus is doing XFL snap count data! This allows us to update the depth charts with a bit more accuracy. There will likely be some significant changes from Week 1 to Week 2 since teams aren’t locked in with their starters, but these should be pretty close.
The Orlando Guardians ended up suffering the worst loss in Week 1 of the XFL season. The fell 33-12 to the Houston Roughnecks and ended up benching their starting quarterback Paxton Lynch. It was an inauspicious start to the season.
Lynch was replaced by Quinten Dormady, who wasn’t much better. The Roughnecks QBs were sacked seven times, so it’s not like they had a ton of time to process the plays. So there will be an open question as to who will start in Week 2.
The running back situation has Jah-Maine Martin as the main back and one of the few backs to average over 4-yards per carry. He also saw a target, unlike backup Keith Taylor. He should remain on fantasy radars.
The pass catchers were led by Eli Rogers with seven targets, but Cody Latimer was the most productive, while Andrew Jamiel was the deep threat who connected for a touchdown. Latimer is listed on the depth chart as the H-back, which gives him some versatility.
