Week 5 CFL Standouts: Highlights from Trevor Harris, Jackson Jeffcoat, and Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Offensive Line

As week 5 of the Canadian Football League (CFL) wraps up, we reflect on the standout performances in the latest Honour Roll, powered by Pro Football Focus (PFF).

PFF’s comprehensive game footage analysis provides an in-depth look at each play, player, and game. This analysis results in over 200 unique data points, providing a robust understanding of player performance. Each player is graded on a scale of up-to-100, reflective of their performance at their specific position. You can learn more about PFF and their grading methodology at

Each week, we spotlight the top Player Grades for offense and defense, along with the highest graded offensive line. Additionally, we’ll give a nod to the top performers from each of the nine position groups as part of our All-Week team. For consideration, offensive and defensive players must have played a minimum of 25 snaps, and special teams players at least 10.

Trevor Harris, the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ quarterback, led the offence with an impressive performance in a narrow 12-11 victory against Edmonton. Harris achieved a PFF Player Grade of 88.2, completing 19-of-29 passes for 292 yards and one touchdown. Notably, he threw a 39-yard pass to Mitchell Picton in the second quarter and made a crucial 13-yard rush late in the fourth quarter to tie the game.

For defence, Jackson Jeffcoat of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers emerged as the star in a 24-11 triumph over Calgary. Jeffcoat earned a PFF Player Grade of 84.1 with one pass knockdown during his 38 defensive snaps. He also achieved an impressive 85.1 Grade on 25 pass rush snaps.
