This Week in the CFL - Sep 12th

Edmonton @ Hamilton

Fred Stamps: Yes he had just two catches for 39 yards but the guy returned a couple weeks early from his abdominal injury. With an extra week of practice and recovery, expect big things from the Eskimos number one threat. On the flip side the Ti-Cats secondary is back to giving up big plays and really does not have an answer for Stamps.

Avon Cobourne: I’m calling for a massive bounce back game. Montreal got up so quickly on Hamilton; completely negating any semblance of a rushing attack. Cobourne is the definition of a workhorse back and will not repeat his pitiful five carry, two yard performance against an Edmonton squad that is last in average yards per rush allowed.

Toronto @ Saskatchewan

Steven Jyles: I’m sick and tired of picking Argonauts defensive players week in and week out. This may be a hero pick; but Jyles did rush for 47 yards against the Lions and the last time Jyles faced the Roughriders he did post a 116 QB Rating. Yeah I know I’m reaching a bit but at least you know he won’t be pulled for Dalton Bell.

Wes Cates: If you look at his last two games it is hard to be impressed with his yardage totals but remember Cates was going up against the Blue Bombers rush defence in both contests. This week he faces the Bizarro Blue Bombers D in Toronto who are last in league in rush defence, allowing nearly 123 yards a game.

BC @ Calgary

Khalif Mitchell: I’m curious to see what the Lions can do for an encore. Last week he managed three sacks and five tackles overall for a defence that has now gone 13 quarters without allowing a touchdown.

Brandon Smith: This is my hunch pick for the week. Brandon, one of the best corners on Calgary should have plenty of tackle opportunities facing a Lions squad that is 2nd in pass attempts and has the fewest yards rushing.

Winnipeg @ Montreal

Before I continue can I give a quick shout out to Buck Pierce? Five interceptions in one game! Are you kidding me? Maybe you really aren’t that good. Moving on...

Jonathan Hefney: I would have looked at one of the Blue Bombers wide outs but to be honest I have no idea who is going to be “The Man” on any given week. It’s like guessing the Patriots passing game, just infuriating. Hefney will be facing the best passing attack in the league so look for a high tackle total.

Chip Cox: Winnipeg quarterbacks were sacked three times and Buck had five interceptions against Saskatchewan how could I not look at Cox as an interesting pick? The guy is always making big plays and he’ll be facing an offence that is about as mistake prone as they come.
