Antonio Pipkin, Montreal – $6721

Antonio Pipkin has been producing results on the field, and with Johnny Manziel hampered by illness, he will have the opportunity to continue to do so. With three consecutive weeks of 19 or more points, Pipkin has certainly earned a spot on your fantasy roster as a bargain quarterback start in a week with only three games. His rushing total gives him a baseline production level that makes Pipkin a very safe gamble. The B.C. Lions defence has had an inconsistent season and does not pose a daunting matchup. 

Alex Green, Hamilton – $9336

The most expensive running back in CFL Fantasy this week is Alex Green, and deservedly so. While Calgary is a difficult opponent, Green’s red zone usage should allow him to again be productive. The Stampeders have allowed four touchdowns on red zone carries in the last two weeks. With Jeremiah Masoli under centre, Calgary’s defence will need to respect the pass in these defensive situations. Green likely won’t eclipse 100 rushing yards, but he has a good chance to again hit pay dirt, and make fantasy owners happy.

Tre Mason, Saskatchewan – $4186

Tre Mason has officially supplanted Marcus Thigpen as the Roughriders lead running back. In a game where both backs were healthy and on the roster, Mason out-touched Thigpen 22 to two on offence, and was very productive with his workload. His modest price point has some risk boiled in. Fourteen of Mason’s carries touches came in the second half when Saskatchewan was already leading. In addition, Mason only had two red zone touches, which effectively limits his touchdown upside. However, in a winnable matchup against an Ottawa defence that has allowed running back production, Tre Mason represents a low-risk, high-reward running back option.

Reggie Begelton, Calgary – $3513

With Kamar Jorden out for the year, Reggie Begelton was featured against the Eskimos last week and was wildly productive. Marken Michel and DaVaris Daniels appear to be taking turns in the boundary wide receiver position, which means they’ll be matching up against the imposing Delvin Breaux this week. With significantly more difficult coverage on other wide receivers, Begelton will remain heavily targeted and productive for your CFL Fantasy lineup.

Bryan Burnham, B.C. – $6332

In four of Bryan Burnham’s last five games, he has produced good to excellent stat lines for CFL Fantasy, including scoring four touchdowns. With Emmanuel Arceneaux out and DeVier Posey just joining the team, Burnham will again be the focal point of B.C.’s passing offence. Montreal’s pass defence has been poor throughout the season and does not present an insurmountable challenge. Ricky Collins Jr. will receive the most difficult coverage matched up against Tommie Campbell, which could funnel further targets in Burnham’s direction. Burnham has a safe floor and a very high ceiling this week.
