In the third week of the Canadian Football League (CFL) season, standout performances from Montreal Alouettes’ Cody Fajardo, Toronto Argonauts’ Royce Metchie, and the entire Argonauts’ offensive line have earned them places on the CFL Honour Roll, powered by Pro Football Focus (PFF).
Pro Football Focus, renowned for its meticulous analysis of game footage, offers in-depth insights into player performance. PFF analysts scrutinize every play, player, and game to provide more than 200 distinct data points, which are then used to develop Player Grades. These grades, measured on a scale of up-to-100, represent the performance quality of a player in their specific role.
