Great deals on players you can pick for your team this week in CFL weekly Fantasy games at Game Zone or Draft Kings as well as players who might be available in your head-to-head fantasy league at 110Yards. Save some salary so you can afford some of the high-priced superstars.
Game Zone is CFL’s new fantasy game on their website which is similar to Draft Kings and is a weekly fantasy game where you choose your team each week and have to stay within a certain salary cap. GameZone is a budget of $70K and Draft Kings is $50K.
110Yards is a more traditional fantasy football service where managers draft their teams and keep their players all season. 110yards.ca can also accommodate a league starting midway through the season.
A note on sports betting:
Draft Kings is a place where people will play for money. I want to encourage everyone to play responsibly if you do play at Draft Kings. I am personally of the belief that such activities are best enjoyed around dollar amounts you would spend at a fast food outing. When people place large bets on sports gambling, they are risking the quality of their livelihood and their ability to provide for their family. If you are struggling with gambling addiction there are many services in place to help you based on where you live.
Chad Kelly, Toronto Argonauts, QB
Draft Kings Price: $9.5K
Game Zone Price: $12.3K
110 Yards Ownership Percentage: 72%
Chad Kelly played great in his first meaningful game as a starter in the CFL. His willingness to take off and pick up yards gives him tremendous fantasy upside. He completed 23 of 14 passes for 213 yards and added 5 carries for 28 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns against Hamilton.
Matthew Shiltz, Hamilton Tiger-Cats QB
Draft Kings Price: $8.6K
Game Zone Price: $7.3K
110 Yards: 24%
Matthew Shiltz came in late last week in relief of Bo Levi Mitchell. He completed 13 of his 14 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown all within the final 6 minutes of the game. He also demonstrated great accuracy in the preseason completing 12 of his 16 passes for 162 yards and 2 touchdowns. Bo Levi Mitchell has been ruled out for Hamilton’s game against Montreal and Shiltz has been named the starter for this game. He is the lowest-priced quarterback and just might surprise some people on Friday.
Dedrick Mills, Calgary Stampeders, RB
Draft Kings Price: $8K
Game Zone Price: $10.5K
110 Yards: 50%
Last year Dedrick Mills was 4th in points per game across his 4 starts and 2 games as a backup. He played very well in relief of Ka’Deem Carey last year. Carey is on the 6-game injured list so look for Mills to have some big games on one of the best ground game teams in the league. Last week he rushed 19 times for 102 yards (5.4 average) and a touchdown.
Johnny Augustine, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, RB
Draft Kings Price: $5K
Game Zone Price: $5.2K
110 Yards: 22%
Brady Oliveira is doubtful to play Thursday due to injury. This would mean that Augustine would get the start if this happens. Augustine is a good running back who has shown great ability to make defenders miss. Winnipeg is often a team that likes to give their starting running back a lot of carries. If Augustine is starting he is at a great price to add to your lineup.
Tre Odoms-Dukes, Calgary Stampeders, WR
Draft Kings Price: $4K
Game Zone Price: $6.8K
110 Yards: 72%
Tre Odoms-Dukes may be in store for a lot of targets. Calgary’s top 2 receivers in Malik Henry (chest) and Reggie Begelton (rib) were both non-participants in practice on Tuesday.
Damonte Coxie, Toronto Argonauts, WR
Draft Kings Price: $3.1K
Game Zone Price: $9.5K
110 Yards: 46%
Damonte Coxie was recognized by Pro Football Focus after his performance in week 2 by being named to their Honour Roll as the highest-graded receiver on the week. In Toronto’s season opener, he was tied for the most targets at 7 and led the tea in catches and yards as he caught 7 passes for 131 yards. It can be difficult to predict who a quarterback’s favorite target is going to be when a team has a new starting quarterback, but based on what we saw Coxie is off to a great start with Chad Kelly.
Tevin Jones, Saskatchewan Roughriders, WR
Draft Kings Price: $4.1K
Game Zone Price: $9.6K
110 Yards: 26%
Jones was elevated to the starting lineup following Derel Walker being placed on the 6-game injured list. Jones was the most targetted receiver across the CFL in week 2 as he caught 9 of 14 targets for 121 yards. Fantasy has a lot to do with chasing touch volume and the high target load could be an indicator of things to come.
Defenses may be more intentional in containing him after such an explosive day in his first game.
Alexander Hollins, BC Lions, WR
Draft Kings Price: $6.2K
Game Zone Price: $11K
110 Yards: 63%
Hollins has been stepping into a bigger role during the absences of key receivers on BC’s offense due to injury. This week BC’s leading receiving Dominique Rhymes is ruled out. Hollins could be relied upon to carry a bigger role with Rhymes not playing. Hollins is 9th in the league in receiving yards with 11 catches for 138 yards.
Austin Mack, Montreal Alouettes, WR
Draft Kings Price: $3.2K
Game Zone Price: $4.9K
110 Yards: 61%
Mack caught 4 of his 6 targets for 120 yards in week 1. He accounted for nearly half of the receiving yards in Montreal’s week 1 win. Montreal only attempted 20 passes in that game so it’s possible he may see a bigger target load moving forward.
Samuel Emilus, Saskatchewan Roughriders, WR
Draft Kings Price: $3.6K
Game Zone Price: $7.1K
110 Yards: 72%
Saskatchewan’s receiver room has some players taking on bigger roles after last week that were not previously anticipated. As a result, there are some low-priced receivers who are capable of some big numbers. Emilus caught 7 of his 8 targets for 78 yards and 3 touchdowns against Winnipeg.
Shawn Bane Jr., Saskatchewan Roughriders, WR
Draft Kings Price: $4.3K
Game Zone Price: $10K
110 Yards: 57%
Last week Shawn Bane had a monster game catching all 6 of his targets for 132 yards.
Rasheed Bailey, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, WR
Draft Kings Price: $6.3K
Game Zone Price: $11.4K
110 Yards: 76%
Rasheed Bailey has been the third most targetted receiver so far for Winnipeg. Winnipeg’s top receiver Dalton Schoen is listed as questionable for Thursday’s contest. If Schoen is unable to go Bailey could be targeted quite a lot by Zach Collaros. Winnipeg is playing a tough defense in the BC Lions, but the Winnipeg has been playing it’s hard to imagine them being stopped.
Cole Spieker, Montreal Alouettes, WR
Draft Kings Price: $3.8K
Game Zone Price: $8.1K
110 Yards: 13%
Spieker had 0 targets in week 1 with new quarterback Cody Fajardo. I am not yet concerned by this number due to the fact Fajardo only attempted 20 passes in week 1. Last year Spieker started in 2 games and had 10 catches for 171 yards in those 2 games.
