For those of us preparing for XFL DFS, there is some good news. We have official depth charts! With such new teams these depth charts will likely change quickly, but this should be how they start out Week 1, which will help us a lot when trying to set our lineups.

The BattleHawks are a tough offense to get a handle on, as they have a head coach who has never been a head coach and an offensive coordinator who hasn’t coached for nine years. They’re second to last in odds to win the championship as well. But, they do have Christine Michael, which is a big plus.

Jordan Ta’amu will lead the way at quarterback and has some rushing ability, which he will likely need. If he is allowed to run, he could be useful in fantasy, but this offense is difficult to project (as they all are really).

Christine Michael is the starter as expected. He’s shown plenty in his career to believe he will play well in the XFL. Being on what could be a poor overall offense will probably hurt his upside, but his skill level should elevate him enough to be useful in fantasy.

De’Mornay Pierson-El will be the slot receiver and had a good run in the AAF. He will likely be a consistent fantasy player in PPR leagues while L’Damian Washington has the most big play and touchdown upside.
