The XFL season is here, and with it comes XFL fantasy football.

The Duel already has you covered with start 'em, sit 'em picks and XFL fantasy football rankings by position for Week 1, but now we'll take a deeper look at a player who might be the top league's top fantasy option — Landry Jones.

Landry Jones Fantasy XFL

Jones was the first QB taken in the 2020 XFL Draft, and at +300 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, his Dallas Renegades are the favorites to take home the 2020 XFL Championship.

Both of those factors play a big role in Jones' standing as the top-ranked QB in our season-long XFL fantasy football rankings, and he's also QB1 for Week 1, while his Renegades are heavy 10-point favorites over the St. Louis BattleHawks.

With the XFL's unique set of rules and the unpredictability that surrounds schemes and player usage for each of the eight brand-new teams, there's not a lot to analyze for Week 1, so leaning on the betting markets can prove particularly insightful.

Jones never got much action as Ben Roethlisberger's backup in the NFL, but the Renegades took a clear stance that he is their franchise QB by selecting him first overall, and he'll have some intriguing weapons to throw to — including Jeff Badet and Jazz Ferguson, if he's healthy enough to suit up.

Be sure to also check out the rest of our fantasy picks for this weekend's St. Louis BattleHawks vs. Dallas Renegades XFL game at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 9.
