CFL Fantasy Week Three Starts and Week Two Review

0

In a week of blowouts, quite a few players made big impacts on fantasy rosters. Check out some of the studs of Week Two, and players you should consider for your Week Three lineup!

Week Two Studs

Chris Streveler, Winnipeg – 37.6 Points

Chris Streveler orchestrated a complete beatdown of the Alouettes, and in the process proved he’s the real deal. His price only increased incrementally to $6217. This week he faces a Hamilton defence that has allowed the most passing yards in the league. You shouldn’t expect 37 points, but Streveler projects to be an excellent value.

Bo Levi Mitchell, Calgary – 23.4 Points

After posting a poor 47% completion rate in week one, Mitchell bounced back in a big way for 91%. Ottawa’s defence was great against Saskatchewan, but the wealth of weapons available for Bo Levi Mitchell assures that he will have an opportunity to once again be very productive. Dave Dickenson won’t have the opportunity to pull Mitchell for Nick Arbuckle against the high scoring REDBLACKS, meaning BLM’s upside won’t be capped.

D’haquille Williams, Edmonton – 20.5 Points

Williams was a great value this week and should be again at BC at only $3775. While 75% of his yards have come on two big plays, Duke is the most targeted player in the league. You may not see high reception totals, but Williams explosiveness means all you need is one play for him to return on his salary.

Brad Sinopoli, Ottawa – 13.4 Points

A solid PPR value last week, Sinopoli looks to repeat on Thursday against Calgary. In a poor showing against the Stamps, the Argo’s second most productive receiver was Jimmy Ralph, who shares Sinopoli’s inside field slotback position. In one of the marquee matchups of the week, Sinopoli should again get his share of receptions and reward fantasy players looking for a bargain.

Week Three Starts

Naaman Roosevelt, Saskatchewan – 5.6 Points

It has not been an ideal start to the season for Naaman Roosevelt, but this is the week to get him in your lineup. The Alouettes’ defence has allowed the most yards and total points against this year, and Brandon Bridge is a capable quarterback. At $5162, Roosevelt’s price has fallen, giving fantasy owners a great opportunity to capitalize.

CJ Gable, Edmonton – 8 Points

Game scripts and inconsistent play from the Eskimos offence has conspired to prevent CJ Gable from returning on his high salary so far this year. Jason Maas has made it clear that he wants to have a balanced offence and make significant use of the run game going forward. Hosting the BC Lions, a team that trailed the hapless Alouettes for nearly three quarters of football, Edmonton has an opportunity to lean on the run. CJ Gable is one of the few true bellcows in the CFL, and his salary has become much more manageable at $6474.  

Marcus Thigpen, Saskatchewan

If you want to swing for the fences in one of your running back spots, take a look at Marcus Thigpen. Jerome Messam has only managed 3.6 yards per carry and has not looked as dominant as he did in Calgary. He’s returning from suspension and has an chance to supplant Messam for the starting job. At a $4000 salary he could return great value on. Thigpen was effective in the 2017 playoffs, and is playing a Montreal defence that allowed nearly 250 rushing yards.
