XFL Power Rankings ahead of Week 1 of the 2023 Season
Our XFL Power Rankings will be your one-stop shop each week to find out what the pecking order is among the eight teams in the Late Winter/Early Spring Pro Football League.
After three years away, a bankruptcy filing, and then the league sold to Hollywood superstar and WWE legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in 2021, the XFL will return to the field with an opening weekend featuring its first series of four games on February 1. 18 and 19. The season will span 10 weeks before the 2023 XFL Playoffs kick off in late April.
With this season’s draft and training camp in Texas complete, let’s take a look at the power rankings ahead of Week 1 of the 2023 XFL season.
8. Orlando Guardians
The Orlando Guardians fall to last place in these early XFL power rankings simply because the early reviews on their roster and coaching staff led by Terrell Buckley aren’t strong. Both of these elements of their 2023 team are unproven, especially with a quarterback room that includes unnamed Deondre Francois, Mitch Kidd and Quinten Dormady. Although there are talented players on the roster, this team has a lot to prove early on.
7. St. Louis Battlehawks
