CFL Draftkings Picks For Week 2

How did Week 1 go for you? If Weston Dressler doesn't get hurt in the first quarter of the game against the Alouettes, I probably land in the money, but injuries are a part of the game so no coin for yours truly in Week 1.

Here's who I suggest for Week 2:


Harris is the top-ranked QB on the board that is healthy behind both Henry Burris and Zach Collaros. Harris was amazing in Week 1 throwing for three touchdowns in less than a half of play. One has to think he may be able to carry on that roll as the REDBLACKS move into Montreal.  It is tempting to take Darian Durant to see what he can do after being off for a year against a Toronto D that gave up a lot of yards to Jeremiah Masoli. Durant goes in at an even 9-grand, so if you want to put some money elsewhere and save 800 dollars from Harris to Durant, go for it.


Unlike the NFL version of the game, special teams points are awarded for not only the Defence/Special Teams Category, but they also go to the player picking up those return yards and touchdowns. As a result, Chris Rainey is someone to look at every week as is Brandon Banks as they are not only return guys, but offensive starters. Rainey scored once on offence and once on a punt return in the Week 1 win vs Calgary. One has to think he is a part of that BC offence, even though he isn't the starting RB.


As I said in Week 1, stacking is big when it comes to daily fantasy sports. If you are in a fantasy hockey draft, and you have linemates on your team, its nice when they combine for a goal. The same in Draftkings when it comes to a passing TD.  Harris to Williams worked against the Eskimos, and I can see these two hooking up again for a touchdown if not more against Montreal.


I can't be the only thinking Roosevelt has the potential for a huge year after a breakout 2nd half where it was Brett Smith getting him the football, and not Darian Durant.  At 7100, Roosevelt seems like a bargain to me.


The Ti-Cats come home for their home opener as they play a BC team that is flying across the country on a short week. While Jon Jennings and the Lions eked out a win in Week 1 over Calgary, I don't see them starting 2-0 as Simoni Lawrence and crew shut them down.

I'm with ya on Hamilton. No way would I take the Riders D. I am tempted to take Hazelton and Gurley at WR.

If you are a big time gambler, take the Riders D. Ray looked horrible last week.

The interview with Durant on the Rider site today was one of his best! Rider Nation is lucky to have him healthy and ready to rock this year. The sky's the limit.

In the Argos versus Riders football game at Taylor Field, Durrant had a noticable obvious limp to his gait on the field of play. Anyone within eyesight range could see that he looks to have re-injured his foot/leg again or it stiffened up on him.

Nice call on Harris and Williams Scruff. I'm sitting in 171st spot going into tonight's games with the Stampeders D, Messam and Owens.
