CFL Draftkings Week 16
It's never a bad thing when you double up your money on these weekly games, and I did that last week after a brutal Week 14, so let's try for some more winnings this week. One tip of advice: The best team in the CFL is playing a garbage fire in Toronto on Monday. As you will see here, bet heavy on Calgary
QUARTERBACK - BO LEVI MITCHELL $10900
The Calgary QB is 2nd in the league this year when it comes to average points per game at 23.8. I don't see how he doesn't throw for 300 yards and 3 TD's against a Toronto team that is slowly sinking, Another viable and cheaper option is Darian Durant. He is going up against an Ottawa defence that has given up some points the last few weeks.
RUNNING BACK - TIM FLANDERS $6900
I make this call, but I also warn you to check on the status of Andrew Harris before doing so. Flanders (why couldn't his first name be Ned??!!) has averaged over 18 fantasy points a game since taking over in the Winnipeg backfield. He's a solid pick here---if playing!
WIDE RECEIVER - DAVARIS DANIELS $7300
Since Daniels came into the lineup, he has caught 33 passes---6 of them for TD's. He's a big-play guy and he should be able to combine with Bo Levi for at least one score and a 100 yard game (he has 3 already) in what should be a romp over the Argos. Other players I like this week are Duron Carter, who comes in at a very cheap 7000, and Armanti Edwards.
DEFENSE -- STAMPEDERS $5400
Who is Drew Willy going to throw the ball to? Is Drew Willy going to be healthy enough to play the whole game? Can Toronto get 20 points in this one. This is the easiest pick of the week as far as I am concerned.
