What is your approach/advice to the Week 2 slate?

Zak: Stack the St. Louis BattleHawks while the Defenders are still struggling.
Brian: Ride the hot hand in Houston.
Scott: Target the top two passing offenses (Houston and Los Angeles) and find value in pass catching RBs in potential negative game scripts.
Mark: Focus on your WRs first and build your lineups around them.
Alex: Now that we are four weeks in, ownership will start skewing to reflect recency bias. This is the week to find the pivot plays and high-ceiling plays to stand apart from the competition.
Taylor: With Landry Jones out, running backs Lance Dunbar and Cameron Artis-Payne should continue to see 5-7 targets each and will have even more volume in the run game making both ‘must starts’ this week.

Make sure to follow everyone involved for some of the best content across the XFL! We will see you again next week for the Week 4 survey.
