The league’s depth charts are out ahead of week one, and fantasy owners should start taking notes. We have full breakdowns of the Dallas Offense and Defense here on XFL News Hub, but we’ll just take a look some quick notes on the depth chart here.
First off, we’ll note that Landry Jones is still questionable to start. He’s been limited in practice all week, and here it says either he or Phillip Nelsen, or Eric Dungey will start. He’ll be back week two, but this week could be a game time decision.
Lance Dunbar isn’t listed here, but he’s still on the team and it’s most likely just an oversight on the communications department side. Jazz Ferguson has been riding a lot of hype in recent weeks so Dallas fans may be surprised to see him behind vet WR Freddie Martino, but Jazz has been out of practice with a hand issue.
Donald Parham is behind Sean Price at TE/H, and while I still have high expectations for the 6’8″ target, it makes sense. Price is a more complete TE who contributes as a blocker and pass catcher, while Parham will likely be used more in the slot. I think they’ll both contribute, just in different ways.
We’ve been hearing a lot about Micah Abernathy all throughout camp, so I was surprised to see him in a backup role here. Derron Smith is a star on this defense, but I expected Abernathy to start across from him. Clearly the team has seen something in Tenny Adewusi, who logged 17 pass breakups in his time at Delaware.
At returner, Jeff Badet will be electric, and he brings insane 4.27 speed to the field. The guy is so fast he tore through a pair of cleats in practice.
