Canadian Football League (CFL) Must-haves are our most highly recommended players for any given slate. Our experts select these picks above the rest and have determined they are most likely to reach or exceed value. These are the foundational players that we advise building your lineups around.
Andrew Harris (DK: $8,400): Our first Must-Have of Week 17 in CFL action is the Bombers running back Andrew Harris. Harris has been a stud this year, as always, and is looking to break out with a big game this weekend against the BC Lions. The Lions rush defense has been stingy this year, but we are more interested in Harris as a part of the passing game. The Lions rank 3rd-worst in passing yards allowed per game and Harris has already destroyed the Lions defense through the air once this season. Back in their Week 5 meeting, Harris only... Read More
James Wilder Jr. (DK: $7,500): Our first Must-Have this week is the Toronto Argonauts running back James Wilder Jr. Wilder has exploded onto the CFL scene over the last three weeks, and we believe he is going to keep this stretch of tough running alive against the Saskatchewan Roughriders front line. The Riders run unit ranks 8th (2nd-worst) in the CFL, allowing just under 105 rushing yards per game, a mark that is only better than the Montreal defense. Aside from the positive matchup, Wilder’s usage in the Argos offense is another factor that we love in regards to his... Read More
S.J. Green (DK: $9,100): How does that old saying go? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? That’s about how we feel when it comes to targeting the Hamilton Tiger Cats defense in fantasy. It’s been a rough year for the Cats and it seems like it is only going to get rougher this weekend as they square off with the Toronto Argos for the third time this season. If you’ve been a weekly reader of our CFL content, you can skip this next sentence or two as you’ve read it, or something similar to it, many times this season.... Read More
Bryan Burnham (DK: $8,400): The first Must-Have this weekend is the BC Lions’ slotback Bryan Burnham. BB has had a solid year for the Lions and will look to continue his success against the Hamilton TiCats this weekend. We have picked on the dead last Hamilton defense (in all major defensive categories) consistently this year and we plan to do so again this week. Burnham is coming off of a relatively quiet game against an impressive Calgary D where he hauled in three passes for 54 yards. Although this was a less-than-spectacular game, Burnham did see eight targets on the... Read More
Duron Carter (DK: $8,900): The first Must-Have this week is the Roughriders’ star wideout Duron Carter. Carter has been a stud this year for Saskatchewan and matches up against the poor Hamilton defense. In their Week 3 meeting, Carter hauled in seven passes for 63 yards and his first touchdown as a Roughrider. He was targeted 10 times in that game and will look to post a similar stat line this weekend. Since that game, Carter has gone on a tear, catching 34 passes for 480 yards and seven touchdowns in his last six games. That works out to roughly... Read More
