hey guys, since not everyone has access to Sportsline, figure I'd share this...
supposedly RJ White went 4-0 in XFL w1.
Here are White's Week 2 XFL picks and analysis
NEW YORK @ DC | 2/15 | 2 p.m. ET
The Guardians allowed the fewest amount of points last week, but that's not the full story -- their 5.55 yards allowed per play was the second-worst in the league in Week 1. Their offense also tied for the worst in the league with a 10 percent conversion rate on third downs. On the flip side, the Defenders ranked third in yards per play on both offense and defense, and posted the best passing-yards-per-attempt number by a wide margin. With one of the best offenses in the league, the Defenders should be able to expose the Guardians' defense, and I don't think the more conservative offensive game plan of New York will be able to keep up.
TAMPA BAY @ SEATTLE | 2/15 | 5 p.m. ET
I was ready to take the Vipers here, as their offense actually played very well in Week 1, ranking second in yards per play despite scoring just three points. But the Dragons fared better than expected last week, as QB Brandon Silvers played a good Defenders team largely to a draw on a cross-country trip, with two defensive/special teams scores providing the difference. And speaking of cross-country, this is the toughest possible road game in the XFL, with Tampa Bay heading to the Pacific Northwest. That matters, as does the Vipers being on the road for the second straight week. We'll fade them again here and look to get good value on the team starting in Week 3.
DALLAS @ LOS ANGELES | 2/16 | 3 p.m. ET
This is a meeting between the two worst offenses from Week 1 in terms of yards per play, which makes sense as each was missing its starting quarterback. So picking this game will come down to the health of those signal-callers, and I have much more faith in Landry Jones taking the field after he seemed healthy enough to play last week but didn't get the reps in practice to lead the offense. He'll be up against the defense that had the worst yards allowed per play in Week 1, though some of that is a result of playing a Houston team that doesn't run much. That performance got the Wildcats' defensive coordinator fired after just one week, so I'll fade a team that already looks like it might be falling apart.
ST. LOUIS @ HOUSTON | 2/16 | 6 p.m. ET
The Roughnecks had the best offensive and defensive performance in Week 1 in terms of yards per play, so I'm ready to lay whatever I need to, even against a BattleHawks team that played very well on the road in its debut game. A lot of that was a function of leaning on the running game to the tune of 42 carries, but that plan isn't going to cut it against an explosive Houston offense, especially one that's willing to be aggressive on extra-point tries and go for two. The BattleHawks' defense may have ranked second in yards per play, but it also had the worst completion percentage allowed on passes. The Roughnecks will make St. Louis pay if that's the case again this week.
