Pat Mayo and Justin Freeman discuss DraftKings strategy and stacks for the upcoming XFL Week 2 slate, which features large prize pools, including a $50K to first contest. They also reflect on Week 1 and project how real information and statistics will affect XFL DFS going forward.
XFL Week 2 Strategy
After discussing the results from Week 1, Pat and Justin dive into Week 2, which begins on Thursday with a tilt between the St. Louis Battlehawks and the Seattle Sea Dragons. Justin is high on the Sea Dragons and believes the team’s offense will thrive in this home spot.
Moving to this weekend’s action, the duo debate whether Luis Perez ($9,300) will remain the starter with the Vegas Vipers as Brett Hundley ($7,000) waits in the wings. Pat and Justin then hop over to the San Antonio Brahmas, where Kalen Ballage ($7,100) was the recipient of a heavy workload in Week 1. Finally, Justin finds himself pretty bullish that Max Borghi ($8,000) can lead the Houston Roughnecks to a high-scoring output against the Arlington Renegades.
