Sanaynay’s USFL Notes

USFL Notes

Below are some personal notes I’ve made for reference in regards to the USFL coming back this weekend. I’m also, as I did with the XFL, putting in some tier championship plays. I really like some of these teams and as you know with the XFL, I love these leagues. I also put together a little cheat sheet for Week 1 DFS. Let me know in chat if you have any questions or how to construct a lineup. Ignore the “Bets” section of the cheat sheet, I typically jot down notes so I can dig further closer to lock and narrow on my plays so those are not officially what I am playing. Remember to have fun and enjoy football while winning a little bit of coin.

USFL Champion:

New Orleans Breakers (+600): 1u

Philadelphia Stars (+550): .5u

Pittsburgh Maulers (+1000): .25u

Michigan Panthers (Mike Nolan)

  • Takes over for Jeff Fisher
  • Josh Love the QB, Carson Strong a solid backup.
  • Reggie Corbin another top back in the USFL
  • WR group is solid with Ross and Walker
  • Solid Defense


New Jersey Generals (Mike Riley)

  • Team won 9 in a row in 2022, finishing 9-1. 
  • Johnson listed as the QB1, expect Kyle Lauletta to mix in like Perez did in 2022.
  • Victor is a bowling ball BEAST.
  • Trey Williams is more of a change of pace, receiving back.
  • I like Moore as a solid WR, nothing special. Satterfield is a big body deep threat.


Philadelphia Stars (Bart Andrus)

  • Case Cookus is back, pass happy offense.
  • Same coach as 2022 – expect the same exact team. Love this team
  • Matt Colburn the RB1
  • Suell in the slot, Corey Coleman outside with Rowland
  • Bug Howard returns as their TE1


Pittsburgh Maulers (Ray Horton)

  • Same OC as 2022. Expect dramatic improvements and more production.
  • James Morgan will be QB1
  • Mandre Londonis a solid back, Groshek slow and meh.
  • FANTASTIC WR group. Walker/Gaither/Hardaway/Hennie all return ++++


Birmingham Stallions (Skip Holtz)

  • Won in 2022. J’Mar Smith is back
  • Same exact team as 2022. Won the ship. Good defense and solid offense.
  • Bo Scarbrough the RB1


Houston Gamblers (Curtis Johnson)

  • Kenji Bahar back at QB. Played “okay” to end the 2022 season.
  • Mark Thompson the top back of the USFL is back
  • WRs will mix in, Palka the slot so PPR viability.
  • Johnson was the Tulane HC 2012-2015. Was awful, combined 15-34.
  • Extreme pass heavy there in 2012, 50/50 in 13-15.
  • Expect them to mirror the Brahmas from the XFL in style.


Memphis Showboats (Todd Haley)

  • Formally Tampa Bay Bandits
  • Same team as 2022 Bandits – new QB in Brady White
  • Alex Collins the RB – long stints in the NFL
  • Deep but spread out WR group
  • Dillon/Davis/Mitchell/Franklin


New Orleans Breakers (John DeFilippo)

  • Pass happy (65%+)//Expect explosive offense. 
  • McLeod Bethel-Thompson the QB, won CFL ship last season.
  • Anthony Jones a solid back, emerged last year
  • Great WR group, can’t emphasize enough how good this offense will be.
  • Dixon/Adams/Morris – Sage Surratt is a WR in a TE body
