Week 11: Matchup Analysis

Welcome to Week 11, everyone!!
I love numbers! Let’s see what they say about this week’s scheduled match-ups.

THU AUG 31 530 PM MDT
Ottawa RedBlacks at Montreal Alouettes

We are going to kick off the week on Thursday night!

Trevor Harris rolls into Montreal averaging just over 19 FPTS per game, 4th best in the league. Montreal gives up the 3rd most FPTS to opposing QBs, including over 23 average FPTS over their last 5 games. I like the matchup and will start Harris in some leagues this week.

In Ottawa’s backfield, I’m ambivalent on who gets the start, Powell or Madu, as I have their average performances and projections within half a Fantasy Point of each other, depending who gets the start. Ottawa is certainly a pass-first team, but if you believe they’ll get ahead of MTL in this matchup, expect some good 2nd half usage and garbage time. Montreal allows the 3rd most FPTS to opposing backfields, so there is an opportunity here.

Ottawa gives many options for FPTS out of their receiving core. Ellingson had a stinker last week, but has double-digit FPTS in all but 3 of his 10 games this season. Spencer is averaging 12.5 FPTS in his last three, supported by his return game – watch for Quincy McDuffie to return; he’ll steal some returns when he does. Sinopoli is averaging over 9 targets per game, but that has actually only translated to 7.2 FPTS per. Kenny Shaw had a nasty looking hyperextension of the knee last week, so watch his status. Montreal is actually decent against WR’s, 3rd best against the position. It’s the volume that makes these guys safe plays.

Other side of the ball, Montreal is scoring the 2nd fewest points at the QB position. However, if we ignore Durant’s Week 9 stinker, he is still averaging just over 20 FPTS going back to Week 5. That’s not terrible, and Ottawa gives up the 4th most FPTS to QBs. There could be a value play here as Durant will have to throw to keep up with Ottawa’s offense.

Sutton and Rutley is another situation similar to Powell and Madu, with Sutton ranked slightly higher. Montreal’s backfield gets a good amount of touches, but based on predicted pace of play I don’t see them heavily involved this week. If you’re starting them, you’re crossing your fingers for the major score to pad the FPTS.

Through the air, Montreal scores the 4th fewest FPTS, but Ottawa gives up the 3rd most. Ernest Jackson and BJ Cunningham lead the way. The numbers say to expect 60-80 yards receiving, each. Deploy who you figure will get the receiving TD. Nik Lewis is the target monster, but only has one double-digit game in his 9 this year.

SUN SEP 3 200 PM MDT
Winnipeg BlueBombers at Sask Roughriders

Matt Nichols is a must-start. Going back to Week 5 he is averaging over 23 FPTS per game. Start him in what is suppose to be a high scoring back-and-forth matchup. Back in Week 2, Nichols threw four TDs against SSK, scoring 28 FPTS. Sask, however, is no slouch on D, only surrendering an average of 18.5 FPTS to opposing QBs.

Andrew Harris leads the Winnipeg backfield as the 2nd highest scoring RB in the league, for the 2nd highest scoring backfield in the league. He’ll go up against a decent Saskatchewan Defense against the run, currently surrendering the 2nd fewest FPTS to backfields. But I’m still listing Harris as a must-start. Even though dirty vulture Flanders is still getting use.

Winnipeg’s receiving core scores the 5th most FPTS in the league. SSK gives up the 4th most. Leading the way we have Darvin Adams, averaging double-digit FPTS and 12.5 FPTS over his last three. Feoli Gudino looks to be a value play, with a pair of TDs in his last three games. Denmark was the red-zone target leader last week, and emerged with two major scores! Is Dressler coming back yet? *Edit Dressler has been practicing with the first offense. He comes off the 6 game and will start this weekend!

Flipping over the other side, Kevin Glenn should be a viable start in what should be a high scoring game. He is much more inconsistent though, going over 20 FPTS four times this year, but also scoring under 16 FPTS on four occasions, including two single-digit stinkers. WPG currently gives up 22.2 FPTS per game to QBs, 2nd worst in the league only to Hamilton

Sask’s backfield has had a bit of an emergence over the latter weeks, led by Cameron Marshall. Two TDs in his last two games, and averaging almost 15 FPTS in his last five games. Another decent start against a Winnipeg D that gives up the 2nd most FPTS in the league to RBs.

And SSK receivers currently sit scoring the 3rd most points in the league. Roosevelt is averaging over 10 FPTS per game, with three TDs and 70 yards avg receiving in his last four games. Duron Carter has five TDs in his last four, averaging over 15 FPTS over that span. Barkari Grant is a sleeper option, 10 FPTS avg in his last four with two major scores. Winnipeg surrenders the 2nd most FPTS to WRs.

MON SEP 4 100 PM MDT
Edmonton Eskimos at Calgary Stampeders

Labour Day! I fucking love Labour Day Classics.

What can you say about Mike Reilly? If you can afford him, you’re starting him. He had a stinker last week, but it’s Mike Reilly, he doesn’t do two stinkers in a row. Plus the rivalry with Caglary on Labour Day almost guarantees an amazing game. Ignoring last week’s performance, Reilly is averaging an incredible 29 FTPS going back to week 5. His worst performance over that span being 24.5 FPTS. Calgary, however, gives up the fewest FPTS in the league to QBs. Still not worried, but a slight temper to expectations?

Edmonton’s backfield on paper still doesn’t inspire confidence, but the numbers don’t tell the whole story in this case. Perkins scored his first rushing TD last week, but only averages about 50 yards on the ground, per game. Less than 20 through the air. If he can get the major score you’ll see double-digit FPTS from him this week, but otherwise I’m only projecting about 8 FPTs without.

Edmonton leads the league through the air, with their core scoring over 40 FPTS combined, per game. Calgary is ranked 1st in the league giving up the fewest FPTS to WRs. Tough matchup on paper but easier to get behind. Zylstra is back. Bowman should be back too. Mitchel is averaging double-digits. Watch for the return of Hazelton, who is also giving us double-digit performances. Duke Williams has over 100 receiving yards per game, in his last three. I expect the return of veterans will start to impact the newbies production.

Surprisingly, Calgary’s QBs are only rated 6th best in the league. BLM does seem hampered by some kind of injury, but he seems to be playing through it. Edmonton is ranked 4th best in the league against opposing QBs. Because of the performances that always come out of rival games, I still like BLM this week and can see him doing 350+ yards through the air with at least a pair of TDs.

Messam in the backfield is a touch monster. In all games this season the fewest touches he’s had is 12. The most, 30. Averaging 17. This weekend he should give you about 70 yards on the ground and another 20 through the air. Cross your fingers for the major score. Edmonton surrenders the 4th most FPTS to backfields.

Calgary’s 3rd best receiving core will face Edmonton’s 2nd best secondary. Ugly on paper but again, the pace of this game should provide for plenty of FPTS scoring. McDaniel gives us almost 70 yards per game. Same with Daniels, who is getting the red zone targets now. Michel remains active, just under 9 FPTS per game average.

MON SEP 4 430 PM MDT
Toronto Argos at Hamilton Ti-Cats

And finally, it’s Toronto’s turn to pick on the poor Tabbies. In week 1, Ricky Ray threw 506 yards against Hamilton. I don’t think he’ll do that again, but he should still do well against the worst D in the league across all positions, QB, RB and WR. If he’s healthy, start Ricky.

I hate Toronto’s backfield. As a group they score the fourth most FPTS in the league. But individually, none are very fantasy relevant. Whittaker only has two double-digit performances out of 7 games played. Coombs is out. Martese Jackson is a streaky kick/punt return play. With a TD back in Week 9, I’m almost crazy enough to take a $2500 flier on Declan Cross. But probably not.

Through the air we have an MOP candidate in SJ Green leading the way. 90 yards per game average, 5 TDs on the season, averaging 10 targets per game and 12 FPTS. Start him. Do it. Devier Posey’s return is promising as he was averaging 13 FPTS per game before injury. Doesn’t matter, you’re starting SJ Green. Armanti Edwards is getting over 6 targets per game. Doesn’t matter. SJ. Fuller has been a total disapointment. SJ. Green. SJ. He’ll face a Hamilton D giving up 46.5 FPTS to receiving cores, that is in a whole other category of terrible. SJ. SJ Green.

And then we’ve got Zach Collaros. Poor Zachy. The team averages less than 14 FPTs at the QB position, with Zach’s portion of that being less than 11. Toronto is the 2nd best team in the league against QBs. Poor Zachy. Stay away. *edit* Looks like we’ll have Masoli starting at QB for the Cats. Anyone ballsy enough to start him?

And Hamilton’s miserable backfield. They score a COMBINED average of only 6.9 FPTS per game. The second worst team in the league scores over 12, so miserable may even be an understatement. Stay away.

And finally Hamilton’s receiving core. Terrible, at 27.7 FPTS per game, but not that far behind 2nd worst Toronto at 29.5. Brandon Banks is a danger to rip one off at any time, but that’s what I call the definition of a flier. Luke Tasker still averaging less than 7 FPTS per game, hitting double-digits for the first and only time in Week 9. Toliver is injured. Saunders had a promising start but has faded. Aultman felt like an emerging option until he put up a 1.75 FPTS stinker before the Bye. Stay away.

Good luck this week, everyone! SJ GREEN. SJ.
