XFL DFS Picks: The XFL DFS Daily Plug Week 5

XFL DFS Picks
The XFL DFS Daily Plug is our weekly XFL write-up that highlights the top XFL DFS picks for FanDuel & DraftKings. The Plug then provides actionable information for each slate by giving lineup construction advice, making specific recommendations on how much of your bankroll to allocate, and exactly what types of contests to play -- all depending on the type of player you are.
Be sure to read all the way through to the end!

Keep an eye on this page, updates will be made IN BLUE on gamedays if anything changes. The XFL has added an Injury Report page, so check that as well closer to lock.

Be sure to follow our XFL DFS team on Twitter: Brian Jester, Chris Rooney, & Lucas Jensen.

XFL DFS Rules

There are still the normal differences in fantasy football scoring between DraftKings and FanDuel. FanDuel remains 0.5 points per reception, with no bonuses. FanDuel rosters will consist of 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR/TEs, and 2 flex players. There are no defenses in FanDuel XFL contests. FanDuel has also opted (for now) to only offer 2 game main slates, instead of full weekend 4 game main slates.

DraftKings has PPR scoring, and the same 3 point bonuses as NFL for passing/rushing/receiving. DraftKings rosters will consist of 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WRs, 2 flex players, and 1 DST. TEs have been lumped in with WRs on DraftKings. 

With the XFL’s rules for 1, 2 or 3 point conversions, both sites have decided to award the respective amount of points scored on a conversion to players. Example: if a QB throws a successful 3 point conversion to a WR, both players will earn 3 fantasy points.

Note: should any game go to overtime, each offense gets to run 5 two-point conversion plays. Any successful conversions will accrue fantasy points accordingly.
