Draft Kings Launches XFL DFS Contests

Football fans who reside in states that have legalized daily fantasy sports gambling, now are able to compete against one another and draft XFL lineups.

The XFL 2020 regular season kicks off next Saturday, February 8th and DraftKings has officially launched daily fantasy contests for the XFL. Football fans who reside in states that have legalized daily fantasy sports gambling, now are able to compete against one another and draft XFL lineups.

This partnership between the XFL and DraftKings is a great way to increase fan engagement. DraftKings provides fans with an interactive experience of getting to know the players in the league, allowing them to ultimately become more involved and interested in the league. With the popularity of DFS rapidly increasing, this serves as a great opportunity for the XFL to attract DFS fans of the NFL, filling a void after the conclusion of the Super Bowl.

For each lineup you draft a “classic scoring” roster format of: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 2 FLEX, 1 DST. (Tight ends are listed as wide receivers).

My name is Pat Traina. I started a website called Off The Gridiron in 2016 to provide football fans with up-to-date news and analysis and also host a weekly podcast. I'm excited for the XFL and for the opportunity at XFLBoard.com to provide fans with all of the latest news going on around the league.
