XFL Fantasy Football: DraftKings picks for week 5

DraftKings picks for week 5 by Justin Berendzen of Draft Diamonds

Note: I cannot guarantee these will be successful. It is just my advice.


Jordan Ta’amu Saint Louis Battlehawks (at DC) ($9,700)

This quarterback decision was tough. But I think Ta’amu will be successful against the Defenders either in the pass or run game and I think he will be a decent play at quarterback. I will also say Taylor Cornelius from the Vipers is a good play if he does actually start too.


Jacques Patrick Tampa Bay Vipers (at LA)($7,000)

I think that both of the Vipers running backs are good plays this week. Patrick is ahead of Smith though because I think Patrick is the one who is more likely to get TDs.


Nick Holley Houston Roughnecks (vs Sea)($7,100)

Holley should be a decent play especially if the Dragons guard  Phillips the same way the Renegades did. Which I think that the Dragons will do because that’s the smart thing to do. I think Holley will be a really good play week 5.


Jordan Smallwood LA Wildcats (vs TB)($6,200)

I like Smallwood week 5 because obviously McBride is the number 1 for the Wildcats but Smallwood is a Solid number 2 option. And I think that he is successful against the Vipers because they might zero in on McBride more.


RB James Butler Houston Roughnecks (vs Sea)($6,700)

I feel good about Butler because every time he has a bad week he bounces back with a good one. I think Butler is capable of being a solid Flex  option week after week and I think that he is definitely one of the best flex possibilities this week.


RB Darius Victor  New York Guardians (at Dal)($5,800)

I really like Victor this week. I think that when he is good the Guardians are going to win. And I think that he will be successful against the Guardians. And a really good play this week.


New York Guardians DST(at Dal)($3,200)

These defense matchups are really hard this week. But Nelson is the shakiest starter this week and that’s why Im saying play the Guardians D. Also they were really dominant last week.
