This Week in the CFL - Aug 1st
Brandon Whitaker RB
214 yards and a touchdown, that was Whitaker’s numbers the last time these teams met. Against the Argonauts defence Montreal has no problems dinking and dunking against that secondary so expect at least five receptions for Whitaker. For as good as the Argonauts defence has been remember they are 2nd last in yards given up rushing.
Anthony Cannon LB
Keep an eye on the injury report! If Cannon is playing he is a good safe Captain bet. Cannon and Whitaker will again be good friends, remember back in Week Three cannon finished with 11 tackles.
Edmonton @ Winnipeg
Jonathan Hefney DB
I’m staying away from Edmonton’s skill positions against Winnipeg’s stingy defence. The easy case would be to pick pass rushing demon Odell Willis but I’m going with one of the league’s leading tackler instead.
Fred Reid RB
Chad Kackert ripped up Edmonton’s D for well over 100 yards last week against this D. You know they’ll feature Reed in attempt to keep Buck Pierce healthy and keep Fred Stamps off the field.
Saskatchewan @ B.C.
Darian Durant QB
The much embattled quarterback is taking a great deal of heat for his lackluster play but this is one of the few weeks to look at him as a serious start candidate. He looked fantastic against the Alouettes and the Lions have given up the most total yards and rushing yards so far this season. Now if someone on the Roughriders could call for more running plays for Durant ….
Travis Lulay QB
I’m calling for a shootout in this game. Guess who gives up the second the most yards through the air? Oh yeah it’s Saskatchewan who are still looking for someone to rush the passer. Yes the Lions are a dreadful 0-5 but the Lions are 3rd in yards passing.
Hamilton @ Calgary
Chris Williams WR
No more Arland Bruce, that says the team has a ton of faith in Williams to continue what we saw him do against the Lions.
Geoff Tisdale DB
The former Ti-Cat defensive back has two interceptions so far on the season and should be looking for pay back against his former team. Expect an inspired performance.
