Thoughts Following BC’s Win

Thoughts Following Montreal’s Loss

1 Dominique Rhymes – BC Lions – Previous Ranking: 1

4 GP, 17 Receptions, 283 Yards, and  5 Touchdowns

Dominique Rhymes caught 2 of his 2 targets for 37 yards in the win against Montreal. With Hatcher and Whitehead now both being healthy there is a lot of talent for the ball to be spread around so Rhymes’ target load could possibly decrease.

2 Dalton Schoen – Winnipeg Blue Bombers – Previous Ranking: 2

5 GP, 23 Receptions, 365 Yards, and  2 Touchdowns

Dalton Schoen caught 3 of his 7 targets for 40 yards. He was once again the most targeted receiver for Winnipeg.

4 GP, 19 Receptions, 236 Yards, and 1 Touchdown

Tre Odoms-Dukes caught 5 of his 11 targets for 44 yards. The high target load could be a sign of an increase in production to come as Calgary comes off a tough passing day against Winnipeg. Calgary will need players to step into bigger roles and Malik Henry is out for the rest of the season.

14 Alexander Hollins – BC Lions – Previous Ranking: 8

5 GP, 23 Receptions, 294 Yards, and 1 Touchdown

Hollins caught 1 of his 2 targets for 12 yards. With BC now having a healthy receiver room Hollins may see a dip in production.

2 GP, 7 Receptions, 104 Yards, and 1 Touchdown

Maurice Ffrench had 1 catch on 6 targets for 30 yards. It was a quieter day for Ffrench but he still was tied for the 2nd most targeted receiver for Edmonton which could be a sign of things to come. Ffrench was the most productive receiver in the preseason. Thursday’s game against Hamilton will be Ffrench’s third game in the CFL.

22 Cole Tucker – Calgary Stampeders – Previous Ranking: 21

1 GP, 5 Receptions, 60 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

25 Jaelon Acklin – Ottawa RedBlacks – Previous Ranking: 26

4 GP, 10 Receptions, 137 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

Acklin caught 4 of his 6 targets for 51 yards. It is good to see the 2022 East Division All-Star begin to have more production on what has been a slow start this season.

26 Rasheed Bailey – Winnipeg Blue Bombers – Previous Ranking: 30

5 GP, 12 Receptions, 94 Yards, and 2 Touchdowns

Bailey caught 4 of his 5 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown. He had 33 YAC. Bailey had some quieter games this season and has the potential to break off for some big games on Winnipeg’s dangerous offense.

27 Tyler Snead – Montreal Alouettes – Previous Ranking: Unranked

1 GP, 4 Receptions, 61 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

Tyler Snead caught 4 of his 5 targets for 61 yards. He had 37 YAC. He had a long 44-yard reception late in the 4th quarter that put Montreal in a good position for a scoring opportunity.

1 GP, 2 Receptions, 50 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

Quartney Davis caught 2 of his 6 targets for 50 yards. He had an impressive catch going up and over a defender winning a 50/50 ball reminiscent of what he used to do at Texas A&M.

2 GP, 6 Receptions, 71 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

Watson caught 3 of his 5 targets for 40 yards. Amidst injuries to players such as Derel Walker, Kian Schaffer-Baker, and Jake Wieneke, other receivers continuously are stepping up for Saskatchewan’s offense.

33 Kurleigh Gittens Jr.* – Toronto Argonauts – Previous Ranking: 24

2 GP, 7 Receptions, 63 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns

On the bye week in week 5.

34 Greg McCrae – Winnipeg Blue Bombers – Previous Ranking:

Janarion Grant went down with an injury and Greg McCrae filled in for the return duties for Winnipeg. McCrae returned a missed field goal 102 yards on what was just an incredible return. McCrae is one of the most versatile offensive players in the CFL with the ability to line up in so many areas.

3 GP, 9 Receptions, 120 Yards, and 0 Touchdowns
