Week 8: Fantasy Preview

Week 8 will kick off on Thursday night, with the Montreal Alouettes visiting the Edmonton Eskimos.

The Eskimos have really disappointed on Defense this year. They give up the leagues most Fantasy points to both Quarterbacks and Receivers. The numbers say Kevin Glenn and his Receiving core should have a good game.

On the other side, Montreal surrenders the league’s most points to Running Backs, pointing to a good game for John White. Reilly is still ranked 2nd most Fantasy Points for QBs and his Receivers also rank 2nd best FPTS for the position.

Friday will see the Bluebombers visit the Argos.

This matchup looks pretty dead-even in terms of Fantasy points. Both teams sit dead center in the middle of the league in terms of performances at all positions, with the Argos having one clear advantage – 2nd best FPTS for their Running Backs, going up against a Winnipeg D that surrenders the 3rd most to the position.

Saturday’s Double-Header will start with the top-ranked Stampeders taking on the terrible Roughriders.

Go heavy on Calgary, all positions. Calgary scores the 3rd most FPTS at the QB positon, 1st at Running Back and 4th at Receiver. Compared to Sask‘s terrible Defense giving up the 2nd most FPTS to QBs and RBs and 4th most to Receivers.

The second part of the Double-Header will be Hamilton vs BC.

BC has a touch match-up for their backfield, but every other position plays quite equal. Hamilton is currently the worst Fantasy performer at QB, but that all could change with Zach Collaros set to make his return.

Things of note this week:

Anthony Allen‘s value fantasy has plummeted with the return of J. Johnson.
Clarence Denmark may turn out to be the most valuable Free Agent on the market at the moment.
Zach Collaros is really close to returning for Hamilton, looks likely for Week 8
Argos have added QB Dan Lefevour. May possibly start over Logan Kilgore?
Sask‘s backfield – Lawrence? We’ll have to wait for the Depth Chart this week.

Ottawa will be on the Bye for Week 8
