CFL Preview week 18

Welcome to another CFL, CFL DFS advice article.  This week we have a 4 game slate. There are only 4 weeks left in the regular season. Montreal is on a bye which makes this week a little more difficult but it should be a fun week.  Let’s get started!

QB:

 

JEREMIAH MASOLI $11,300

Masoli and the Tiger-Cats get the plus matchup of the week against the Argos.  Masoli has been having the best season of his career. He is averaging 306 passing yards a game.  The Argos allow a league-high 288 yards a game. Masoli will be in my cash lineups this week.

 

MIKE REILLY Edmonton Eskimos $11,100

Mike Reilly is second in my rankings this week.  I think he is a great GPP. Whenever you can get him lowish owned you should use him in a GPP if you can.  The Eskimos are struggling to get in the playoffs in a tight west division and every game is close to a playoffs game for the bottom 4 teams in the division.  Look for Reilly to turn it around this week and have a big game,

JAMES FRANKLIN Toronto Argonauts $8,300

Franklin will get the start this week for the Argos.  When Franklin arrived it was expected that he would be the QB to take over for Ricky Ray when he retired.  He was unable to meet expectations early in the season but last week he looked impressive at the end of the game vs the Lions.  Franklin is a nice value play in GPPs this week.

RB:

 

WILLIAM POWELL Ottawa RedBlacks $8,500

Powell seems to get better every game.  He has rushed for 100 yards in 4 of his last 6 games.  Edmonton allows a lot of points to running backs. Powell is an easy first choice at running back this week.

BRANDON BURKS Toronto Argonauts $5,300

It looks as though the Argos backfield will consist of only Brandon Banks. Banks is a low $5,300.  That is a great price for someone that is going to get all of the running back carries and passing targets.  With the Argos starting Franklin at QB I expect Burks to be heavily used in this game.

 

TYRELL SUTTON BC Lions $5,000

Tyrell Sutton will start at running back for the Lions this week.  Sutton is an above average running back that the Lions acquired for the stretch to get them into the playoffs.  The regular readers here know that I like to spend down at running back when I can.

 

 

WR:

 

BRANDON BANKS Hamilton Tiger-Cats $9,700

Brandon Banks has been the most consistent receiver in the league this season.  He and the Tiger-Cats have a great plus matchup this week. Banks should be very high owned this week.  He needs to be in you cash lineups because if he isn’t you are not likely to cash.

JUWAN BRESCACIN Calgary Stampeders $6,300

Brescacin is the only regular receiver on the Stamps that will be in their lineup this Saturday.  He should be the most targeted receiver for the Stamps this week. He has a safe high floor for points.

D’HAQUILLE WILLIAMS Edmonton Eskimos $9,300

Williams has tailed off in recent weeks.  He is still a player that needs to be considered for your lineups.  Especially in GPPs. His ownership should go down since he hasn’t performed up to his price tag.  He still has the potential for a huge game. Ottawa does have trouble stopping the pass.

RASHAD LAWRENCE Hamilton Tiger-Cats $3,400

Rashad Lawrence is getting the start in the slot for the Tiger-Cats on Friday night.  Lawrence is a nice value play. He has low price and he gets a plus matchup against the Argos pass defense.  Putting Lawrence into your lineups gives us some great salary relief to fit in the higher priced players we want to have in our lineups.  

MARKEITH AMBLES Calgary Stampeders $4,300

There appears to be a very good chance that Ambles is going to find his way into the Stamps starting lineup this week.  There seems to be a new Stamps receiver hurt every week. It is making it difficult for their offense but there is lots of opportunity for value plays.

 

Defense:

 

TIGER-CATS $5,100

With Franklin starting at QB for the Tiger-Cats they should be in a good position for some big plays on defense.  

STAMPEDERS $5,300

The Stamps have the best defense in the league and are going to need to lean on it down the stretch and in the playoffs if they want to return to the Grey Cup.  They have been dealing with injuries on offense and their defense has been picking up the slack.
