XFL DFS Week 3 Help: Competition Inside the Games

When looking to enjoy your XFL DFS experience in week 3, look to my article for a moment from week 1 or week 2 to understand what this is about as who is in control of these offenses and defenses. Don’t forget to view as much game film as you want maybe late at night if you do so for the players in this league, as I have not had any trouble finding any players’ college and short professional film. This week we are focusing a bit more on the narratives and the strategies of DFS on Draftkings.

XFL DFS Week 3 Satruday

Houston Roughnecks at Tampa Bay Vipers

  • Odds: Roughnecks -5.5
  • Over/Under: 47
  • Time: 2 p.m. ET
  • TV Channel: ABC
  • Take Houston
  • Narrative: June Jones Run and Shoot vs. Jerry Glanville blitz. These 2 have had a rift apart from each other. See my article from week 2 for more on this. This should be a lot of fun as Tampa has a no name defense, that could not rush the passer in week 1 but showed an improved rush vs. Seattle. Seattle is desperate for a win.
  • Best WR’s to Target in order: Phillips if healthy, Lewis, Holley, Coates
  • Truesdell, SJ Green (CFL new aquisition) Williams, Horn, Tolliver, S. Jones
  • RB touches: J> Patrick (27), D. Smith (23),
  • Butler (20), A. Williams (7)

Dallas Renegades at Seattle Dragons

  • Odds: Renegades -4.5
  • Over/Under: 44.5
  • Time: 5 p.m. ET
  • TV Channel: FOX
  • Take the under
  • Narrative: Can Stoops and Landry Jones take on what I consider to be the 2nd best defense in the league? Maybe best when it comes to yards allowed to WRs. Someone will break one for Dallas, its just a matter of who. See below who your best options are in DFS.
  • Best WR to Target in Order: K. Reynolds, A Prohl, D. Byrd, C. Hamlett
  • D. Parham, J. Badet, F. Nagel, S. Pric

  • Time: 3 p.m. ET
  • TV Channel: ESPN
  • Take NY and or the under
  • Narrative: RB’s trying to make or remake their mark in the XFL, with a smash mouth style from both teams, the STL Hawks announced they want a 50% balanced attack. NY is just trying to bounce back as Victor is the underdog of the XFL. Read about his experience in a refugee camp here.
