Heading into week 19, we have ourselves a tough slate of CFL action. Many of the best players have difficult matchups and prices have continued to climb. Value just isn’t out there like it was early on in the season.
With the playoffs just weeks away, teams are either fighting to avoid an early offseason or they’re potentially going to be resting stars. Calgary is one of those teams who could be resting their stars and if you combine that with high prices from their best players, it’ll be tough to roster them this weekend. With this all being said, let’s get to the Vegas totals for week 19…
EXPECTED TEAM TOTALS
- Winnipeg – 30
- Calgary – 29.5
- Hamilton – 29
- BC – 28
- Edmonton – 27.5
- Ottawa – 25
- Saskatchewan – 25
- Montreal – 20
Henry Burris $10,100 ($ and GPP)
Jonathon Jennings $9,600 (GPP)
Matt Nichols $7,900 ($)
Jeremiah Masoli $7,800 (GPP)
At the quarterback position, Henry Burris is my favorite option to use in all formats. He’s high-priced, but not nearly as high as guys like Mike Reilly and Bo Levi Mitchell. Over his last three games (two starts), he has generated 30, 37 and 20 Fantasy points. It’s hard not to like him in this matchup against the Blue Bombers. He’s got a great history of playing well against them and has gelled well with the receivers even with Chris Williams out. I like him most in tournaments, but he’s definitely cash viable in this slate.

Jonathon Jennings has the highest upside of anyone at this position, but as we all know, is very inconsistent. He’s trending up, recording 23 Fantasy points or better in three of his last four games. Against Saskatchewan it’s hard not to use him in at least one tournament entry.
Matt Nichols continues to be a value at this position, but even with Darvin Adams back out wide, he’s not a great tournament option. In this slate there is a lack of high priced flex players worth paying up for, so I’ll be using Burris in my tournament entries instead. When it comes to cash games it’s hard not to love his consistent play.
Jeremiah Masoli makes for an interesting tournament option because he is priced so similarly to Nichols that he should see some low ownership levels. He has faced Ottawa the last two weeks throwing for three touchdowns in each of those games. Masoli has nice rushing upside, which gives him potential for a huge game at a low cost. Use him strictly in tournaments due to his propensity to turn the ball over (16 turnovers in limited action). (UPDATE: ZACH COLLAROS IS STARTING FRIDAY INSTEAD OF MASOLI. NEITHER OPTIONS ARE IN PLAY THIS WEEKEND)
John White $8,100 (GPP)
Andrew Harris $8,000 (GPP)
Joe McKnight $5,600 ($)
Mossis Madu $5,500 ($)
As we’ve already seen plenty this season, John White is capable of a big game…
