Draftkings CFL Week 17
The season is starting to wind down. I'm up considerably on the season, but last week didn't result in anything. Here's some advice for this week if playing.
QUARTERBACK - JON JENNINGS 9200
I am tempted to take Darian Durant against a bad Argos team, but Jennings threw for over 400 yards in Winnipeg last week in a game BC could have won had it not been for some strange happenings at the command centre. I am expecting Jennings to have another big game tonight. I don't know if he will throw for 400 yards, but I see him having a big night.
RUNNING BACK - JEROME MESSAM 8500
As I have said many times this year, you can't go wrong with Messam. He is the best back in the CFL playing on the best team. He should be able to churn up some good yards against a Montreal defence that should get tired out making it easier for Messam to gain some late game yards. A 100 yard game with a couple of touchdowns isn't out of the question.
RECEIVER - DAVARIS DANIELS 8100
The Calgary rookie continues to put up huge numbers in daily fantasy and the actual game. He has averaged over 21 points a game which makes him the best receiver in the game fantasy-wise. One would expect he will combine with Bo Levi Mitchell on some big plays that can get you to the pay window.
Others to consider are Andy Fantuz, Rob Bagg and Bryan Burnham
DEFENCE - ROUGHRIDERS 4400
The Riders "D" has played much better football over the last few weeks and I am looking for that trend to continue. It would be nice if they could get a defensive touchdown, but I can't see this dismal Toronto team getting more than 21 points this week. Go heavy on some other positions and take the Riders at the bargain price of 4400.
