$8.6K Dedrick Mills, Calgary Stampeders, RB
At a price point of $8.6K Dedrick Mills is an absolute steal. With Ka’Deem Carey being placed on the 6-game injured list Dedrick Mills is getting the start for Calgary. Last year Dedrick Mills filled in admirably in Carey’s absence. Mills had 4 starts and played in 6 games last year. Among runningbacks, Mills had the 4th highest average in points scored per game played and that includes the 2 games he played as a 2nd stringer.
$9.1K Taquan Mizzell, BC Lions, RB
I have Taquan Mizzell now ranked 4th on my Week 1 Runningback Rankings. Prior to Dedrick Mills getting the nod t start for Calgary, all the runningbacks aside from Taquan Mizell who are among those I ranked in the top 7 are priced in the $12K to $14.7K range. Taquan Mizzell was 4th in week 1 for points scored by runningbacks in what was his first game in the CFL. He had the highest yards per carry among starting running backs in week 1 as he rushed 12 times for 81 yards (6.8 average).
$4.7K Mason Fine, Saskatchewan Roughriders, QB
Trevor Harris is listed as questionable for Saskatchewan’s game against Winnipeg. Mason Fine was listed as the QB2 last week. If Trevor Harris is unable to go then presumably Mason Fine will get the start. The next most affordable starting quarterback this week is Chad Kelly priced at $10.3K. It’s hard to imagine Mason Fine lighting up the Winnipeg Blue Bombers if he gets the start. Last year Mason Fine played 16 games as a backup and started the final 2 games. Last season fine completed 65.6% of his passes as he completed 67 of 102 for 690 yards and added 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.
$4.8K Tre Odoms-Dukes, Calgary Stampeders, WR
Tre Odoms-Dukes was the most targetted receiver for Calgary in week 1 as he caught 7 of his 10 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown. He had the 4th most points in week 1 among wide receivers. With Malik Henry being ruled out for Calgary’s game Thursday against Ottawa I anticipate Odoms-Dukes to continue to have a healthy amount of targets.
$9.0K Alexander Hollins, BC Lions, WR
Alexander Hollins seemed to be emerging as one of the top 3 receivers in what looks to be a high-powered passing offense in BC. During the time in which Keon Hatcher is on the injured reserve, I am anticipating Alexander Hollins to continue to receive a good amount of targets. He caught all 6 of his targets in week 1 for 85 yards. Aside from Hollins and Odoms-Dukes, receivers who had 70 or more receiving yards in week 1 are all priced at $15K.
$6.7K Carlton Agudosi, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, WR
Carlton Agudosi caught his only target for 40 yards in Winnipeg’s week 1 win over Hamilton. Last year he started in 2 games and had 2 touchdowns before getting injured. The 6’6 product of Rutgers has a great ability to go up and win jump balls. While Kenny Lawler is expected he should continue to start for Winnipeg. He has the potential to surprise people with a big game as defenses have so many other weapons to worry about shutting down when they play Winnipeg.
