CFL | Spotlight: Edmonton Backfield | 9/16/16

Shakir Bell (DK: $6,000) & John White (DK: $6,000): As you can see by the price of each running back, we along with DraftKings, aren’t really sure who will be playing this Sunday for the Edmonton Eskimos. What we can be sure of is that whoever starts, should have a great game.

CFL | Spotlight: Derel Walker | 7/7/16

But, Derel Walker was beginning to grow as a football player as well, entering the 2014 NFL draft. At the Aggies Pro-Day, Walker disappointed scouts with a 4.65 40-yard dash time, but his other measurables (4.36 20 yd shuttle / 6.82 three-cone drill / 37.5″ vertical jump) were all better than the...

If Darian Durant wants to get pumped up for this game, he should just watch Jeremiah Masoli’s game film from last week when he lit up the Argonauts defense for 318 yards... Read More
