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.
Marquay McDaniel (DK: $8,400): Leading off our Must-Haves for Week 2 is the Calgary wideout Marquay McDaniel. McDaniel will be facing off against the Ottawa Redblacks, for the third time in a row, and will look to build off his stellar 2017 debut. Coming off an early-game injury in the 2016 Grey Cup against this same Ottawa Redblacks team, McDaniel was out to prove his worth in Week 1, and he did just that. Facing the Redblacks 8th-ranked pass defense, he hauled in 10 catches on 15 targets for 114 yards; the Ottawa secondary had no answer for McDaniel. Though... Read More
Emmanuel Arceneaux (DK: $9,600): The first Must-Have for this opening weekend in the CFL is the BC Lions’ top option in their lethal passing game, Manny Arceneaux. Arceneaux and quarterback Jonathon Jennings built up a strong relationship last season in route to Manny posting an absurd line of 115 receptions for 1690 yards and 14 TDs. Though Manny may find it difficult to post similar numbers this year with the Lions’ offseason addition of speedster Chris Williams from Ottawa, Williams is not expected to suit up this weekend, leading us to believe it will be yet another edition of the...

Emmanuel Arceneaux (DK: $8,500): Manny Arceneaux has been the poster child for consistency in 2016 and throughout his career. This year, Manny has scored double-digit fantasy points in every game except for two, and currently has 60 catches for 792 yards and five touchdowns. There are a couple of reasons why we decided to choose Arceneaux this week as a Must-Have; first are his teammates. This year, the B.C. Lions have showcased some great talent all around, but one of the bigger surprises is the play of Bryan Burnham (DK: $6,100). Burnham has caught 47 balls for 848 yards and... Read More
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” wrote William Edward Hickson in 1836. Edmonton, Toronto, and Saskatchewan players will try to do just that. Thanks to a scheduling decision by the CFL that blows our minds, all three of these teams will look to avenge their losses from last weekend in rematches with Calgary, Hamilton and Winnipeg, respectively. This makes for an interesting situation in DFS, as simply checking game logs from last weekend could give a representation of what to expect this time around. Guys like Caleb Holley, Luke Tasker, Bakari Grant, and Jerome Messam may... Read More
WR Marquay McDaniel (DK: $8,400) The Calgary Stampeders are rolling and DraftKing players are reaping the benefits. The Stampeders are currently 7-1-1 (we don’t talk about that tie) and lead the league with 185 points against and second in points for with 278. Their stellar defensive play has given Bo Levi Mitchell and company a great field position advantage and has allowed them to pick apart defenses. One of the major benefactors of this methodical offensive approach has been Marquay McDaniel. He leads the team in targets (74), receptions (52), yards (639) and touchdowns (3). This week McDaniel and the... Read More
