Draftkings CFL Week 15 Selections
QUARTERBACK -- MATT NICHOLS $7000
This might be one of the best deals all season long. Nichols has been the catalyst to Winnipeg's turnaround this year, and he is bargain basement cheap. Going up against the Edmonton defence shouldn't be a problem for Nichols as other QB's haven't had a lot of problems putting up some points against that squad. To see Nichols at a lower price than backups like Masoli, Tate and Jensen is somewhat shocking. Take Matt and roll with some expensive receivers.
RUNNING BACK - BRANDON WHITAKER $6900
There are a lot of RB's with a "Q" beside their name this week. It is too risky to take one of those guys and then not have them play. The Alouettes give up on average over 5 yards on the run so let's go with the Toronto RB to have himself a day against Montreal as he should get about 15-20 touches of the football running and catching it.
WIDE RECEIVER - ADARIUS BOWMAN $10900
The Edmonton receiver leads the league in passes caught, yards and is 2nd in TD's. In the words of th great Dan Patrick, "You can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him". Expect Bowman to catch 7/100/1 if not more. There could be some points scored in that game so if you can get Derel Walker and a couple of Bomber receivers as well, go for it.
DEFENCE - ARGONAUTS $5000
I just don't see Rakeem Cato having any success against Toronto. The Argos will give up the fewest points of any team in the CFL this weekend IMO. If they can get a return TD or a pick six as well, it will make for a great investment.
