Week 14: Position Analysis

Hey Football Fans!  Welcome to Week 14!

This week I’ve decided to try something a bit different. Instead of the typical Matchup Analysis, I’ve broken down this write-up by position instead of by matchup.  Let me know what you think! If you prefer last week’s style, I can certainly fall back to that.

Without futher ado…

Quarterbacks

The absolute worst thing you can do this week is go Hamilton pivot. Okay, for once that may not be true! Regardless, Hamilton scores the fewest FPTS at the QB position in the entire league. Doesn’t matter if they are going Collaros or Masoli. However, Hamilton goes up against a BC defense currently giving up the 3rd most FPTS to opposing Quarterbacks.

The second worst team at the QB position is Montreal. Durant is really struggling. The whole team is really struggling. Montreal faces a Toronto Defense 2nd best in the entire league against QBs. Stay away.

Believe it or not, the Calgary QB team scores the third fewest points at the position. The offense doesn’t have to work hard when your Defense is this good. Bo will go up against a Saskatchewan Defense 5th best in the league.

Next best would be the BC lions. But with Lulay out, can you really go with Jennings? He will face a terrible Tabby Cats Defense, surrendering the MOST FPTS to QBs. Maybe this is a value QB option for Week 14… with risk. Mr Interception.

Next up, Ricky Ray and the Toronto Argo’s. Ray would be much more valuable if Fajardo didn’t vulture the ground-based TDs. But they are the 5th highest scoring team at the QB position and should be able to feast-a-plenty against a struggling Montreal team.

Ottawa clocks in as the 4th best team at the QB position. But now we are down to a third stringer in Ryan Lindley. He didn’t look terrible in relief of Drew Tate, but it’s still a risk. Looks like it could be a juicy matchup, however, with Winnipeg surrendering the 2nd most FPTS to QBs.

With the Eskimos on the Bye, next up is the Sask Roughies. Is Glenn good to go? If he is you’ll be tempted to start him with not many other options this week. But I advise caution, as he’ll go up against a shutdown Calgary Defense, best against QBs and WRs. I really hope this one turns into a shoot-out, but that Calgary D is so scary. *Edit – Glenn has been named Starter for Week 14.

Nothing is sounding overly attractive this week. So what do we do?

We reach for Matt Nichols. His salary has climbed. But Winnipeg currently sits atop the Fantasy QB heap. He’ll go up against an Ottawa D that surrenders the 6th most – or 4th fewest, FPTS to QBs. With Ottawa fielding a third string QB, expect the Defense to be on the field a lot, giving Nichols plenty of opportunity to rack up the FPTS.

Running Backs

Let’s start on top – JJohnson in BC, scoring the most FPTS at the position. Up against the woefull Tabby Cats? Must start!

2nd best backfield belongs to Winnipeg. Start Andrew Harris, going up against an Ottawa team surrendering the 6th most FPTS to RBs. A hex upon dirty vulture Flanders!

Shooting WAY up the charts on a ridiculous, surprise performance is the Argo’s backfield. Fantasy irrelevant all season long, and then this Wilder Jr guy comes in and fucking cleans house. Who is this guy? Where did he come from? Can he keep it going? If Whittaker doesn’t return, he’ll face a pathetic Montreal Defense giving up the most FPTS to backfields. Chase those points and start this guy! Hell, get Declan Cross in your Flex too.

4th most productive backfield is led by Jarome Messam in Calgary. Going up against a middle-of-the-road Sask defense. If he’s healthy, he’s in your lineup. He has passed concussion protocol as of Tuesday. *Edit – latest report, he attended practice, but didn’t participate. Keep an eye.

Ottawa’s backfield looks to be startable this weekend as well, going up against a Winnipeg team that surrenders the 3rd most FPTS to RBs. Powell looked dominant last week and with Ryan Lindley at the helm expect plenty of usage. I really like this play for Week 14.

Kienan Lafrance still holds down the backfield for the Roughriders, and still holds down a great value salary. But against that Calgary Defense, I’ll pass.

Can Sutton be started? No. He looks like a dominant runner, but the team around him just isn’t giving him the opportunities.

And finally, CJ Gable in Hamilton, worst team at the position.  Just when you thought he was getting traction under the new coaching staff, he then disappoints once again.  BC is actually the BEST team in the league against RBs. *Edit CJ Gable is ruled out this week. So, move along.

Wide Receivers

The Roughriders receiving core continues to score the most FPTS at the position. They’ll go up against the shutdown secondary of Calgary. I advise caution, especially if Bridge gets the nod. Carter and Roosevelt and even B.Grant will get their looks, but I don’t see enough scoring to go around this week.

Edmonton Receivers score at the 2nd highest rate in the CFL. But they are on the Bye, so no, you can’t start Walker, Zylstra or Duke. Too bad.

Ottawa receivers are the 3rd most productive core in the league. But with a third string QB at the helm, you have to expect a decline in production. As long as McDuffie is still out, your safe play is Diontae Spencer, racking up the FPTS in the return game.  His salary has finally caught up with his huge play. *Edit – McDuffie will be back for Week 14, and it is confimed he will participate in the Return game. Expect Spencer’s production to decline a touch.

Calgary sits in 4th place for WR FPTS scoring, with plenty of mouths to feed. Bo really likes the Boundry slot and receiver positions. Marken Michel, Davaris Daniels ( if healthy ) are your starters. Begelton really took advantage of his time in the slot when Daniels was out last week. *Edit – Both Daniels and Kamar Jorden did not practice yesterday. Mitchel is still looking like a great pick.

Winnipeg receivers, 5th best in the league, will be fully rested when they take on a decent Ottawa defense, 3rd best against the position. Before they went to Bye we had Darvin Adams averaging only 7 FPTS in his last three, with no TD since week 9. Denmark is seeing his Red Zone targets rise, scoring four TDs in his last three games. Dressler is only averaging 6FPTS since coming back from IR. Excpect them to be on the field a lot this week.

Toronto receiving core slots in at the 6th best FPTS producers.  Montreal’s secondary is probably the only thing not in shambles, the 4th best against the position.  I expect Toronto to have a good outing. Start SJ, start Posey, start Edwards.

BC scores the 7th most FPTS at the WR position. We’ll see if their QB can take advantage of the incredible matchup. If any BC receiver is bounce out of a slump – I’m looking at you, Chris Williams!  And maybe even you, Manny! It should be in this game against the worst secondary in the league.

Are you starting any Montreal receivers? Don’t.

And do I have to say the same for Hamilton? Maybe this Andy Fantuz guy will provide some spark but let’s see it play out first.

Good luck this week, Everyone!

Week 14: Fantasy Projections
