PJ Walker: The Lamar Jackson of Fantasy XFL?

PJ Walker lit the XFL Field on fire, and is now the unquestioned top-guy in all Fantasy XFL Drafts

The XFL exceeded expectations in a smashing 2020 debut. No one lit the field on fire more than Roughnecks QB PJ Walker. Operating June Jones’ “Run n Shoot” offense to perfection, Walker hucked for 272 yards and 4 TDs, all while racking up a pair of two point conversions. He had all the looks of a fantasy Cheat Code, akin to Lamar Jackson in 2020.

In short: Walker belongs atop not just your XFL Fantasy QB Rankings, but instead your whole Big Board, moving forward.

Sure, we highlighted Walker’s upside within Jones’ scheme over the preseason. Still, we still didn’t see the “Run n Shoot” flowing this flawlessly. Despite operating in a run-obsessed attack under Matt Rhule at Temple, Walker was marvelous as a passer. He  threw with serious zip, and Jones dialed up deep shots time and time again.

The coaching has been particularly impressive in the XFL, and no scheme impressed more than Jones. Given Jones’ previous success crafting stat-stuffing aerial offenses, the Roughnecks explosion should be no surprise, and is no fluke. Expect Walker to continue lighting up fantasy XFL Scoreboards, and make him a priority pick in XFL DFS and future drafts.
