CFL’s Elite of September: A Glimpse into the Top Performers
The Canadian Football League’s (CFL) prestigious Honour Roll for September is out, with Christian Albright, Vernon Adams Jr., and the formidable Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ offensive line receiving top nods. These accolades, powered by Pro Football Focus (PFF), cover stellar performances from Weeks 13 to 17.
Understanding PFF’s Grading: PFF employs rigorous game footage analysis, providing depth to every on-field action. Their meticulous process involves assessing each game, play, and player, culminating in Player Grades – a numeric representation (out of 100) of a player’s position-specific performance. For further details on PFF’s grading system, visit pff.com/grades.
Every month, the CFL Honour Roll highlights players who achieve the highest Player Grades in offence, defence, and the offensive line. To qualify, offensive and defensive players must participate in a minimum of 75 snaps, while special teams players need 25. In the event of ties, snap counts become the tie-breaker.
