CFL DFS – Week 1 Early Look

Canadian Fantasy Football (CFL) can be incredibly lucrative if you know how to manipulate the roster requirements and scoring. Daily fantasy players (with little experience) can profit quickly with just some basic information because very little is written about CFL inside the industry. My name is DFS Spreadsheets (@dfs_spreadsheet on Twitter)  I’m a data analyst by trade, and love digging into the intricacies that give our players advantages no one else can deliver.

The easiest way to chat, ask questions, or dive deeper into strategic thinking is through our FREE Discord Channels below…


The chart below shows home/away split data from the past 9 games.

Keep in mind that this is the first week of the season and we have not seen any depth charts yet. My player pool will be a little larger than normal this week. 


  • Calgary has averaged over 291 passing yards at home and over 280 pass yards overall in 2021. The Stamps have great receivers that should be successful as long as Bo-Levi Mitchell can return to pre-2021 form.
  • Montreal averages 134 rushing yards on the road while Calgary gives up almost 120 yards per game at home.

Favourite Plays:

CGY-Ka’Deem Carey-RB-9500
CGY-Reggie Begelton-WR-9400
CGY-Kamar Jorden-WR-8200

MTL-Vernon Adams Jr.-QB-9900
MTL-William Stanback-RB-8900
MTL-Eugene Lewis-WR-10500
MTL-Jake Wieneke-WR-9900
MTL-Reggie White Jr.-WR-5000 (SALARY SAVER)



  • Winnipeg averages 124 rushing yards at home. They lost top WR Lawler and Adams and it looks like rookie WR Dalton Schoen may get the start for $2500. He could offer salary relief to fit higher priced players but also be prepared to take a 0. Janarion Grant should be the primary returner and could se some time on offence. I don’t mind pairing him with the Bomber DST in hopes he breaks one. 
  • Ottawa gets a new qb, rb ( CURRENTLY INJURED) and a couple of established CFL vet WR’s. However, I’m not a fan of playing anyone vs Winnipeg. If you like narratives, former Bomber Darwin Adams plays his first game versus his old team.  With William Powell out, Devonte Williams starts at rb for minimum price. He’s a complete unknown but for minimum price, it doesn’t take much for him to pay off his salary.

Favourite Plays:

WPG-Brady Oliveira-RB-7000
WPG-Nic Demski-WR-8100
WPG-Rasheed Bailey-WR-7300
WPG-Janarion Grant-WR-3300 (SALARY SAVER)
WPG-Dalton Schoen-WR-2500 (SALARY SAVER)
OTT- Devonte Williams-RB-2500 (SALARY SAVER)


NFL Season Pass DFS


  • QB Dane Evans takes over full time now that Jeremiah Masoli is out of the picture. Evans played great in 2019, having 8 games with at least 300 passing yards. He loses WR Brandon Banks but still has a lot of weapons.
  • Saskatchewan lost starting RB William Powell this offseason so Jamal Morrow takes over at rb with only 9 carries on his resume. Hamilton averages 22 attempts against on the road so Morrow should see plenty of action. Like his price but having Fajardo as a TD vulturing QB might cap his upside.

Favourite Plays:

HAM-Dane Evans-QB-8200
HAM-Bralon Addison-WR-9000
HAM-Tim White-WR-7100
HAM-Steven Dunbar Jr.-WR-6800
HAM-Papi White-WR-4400 (SALARY SAVER)

SSK-Cody Fajardo-QB-10300
SSK-Jamal Morrow-RB-6600
SSK-Shaq Evans-WR-9200
SSK-Kyran Moore-WR-7700
SSK-Duke Williams-WR-6700
SSK-Kian Schaffer-Baker-WR-5600 (SALARY SAVER)

Edmonton @ BC

  • Edmonton added CFL receiving yards leader Kenny Lawler in the offseason. Lawler has huge upside but he is the second highest priced wr this week and has a new qb throwing him the ball. Its still not know who will be under centre for the Elks but reports had Arbuckle practicing with the first team.
  • Highly touted QB Nathan Rourke takes over for BC after Reilly’s retirement. He had a huge game last season vs Edmonton when he threw for 359 yards, 1 passing TD and three rushing TDs. Rourke has a great duo of WR in Lucky Whitehead and Bryan Burnham.

Favourite Plays:

EDM-James Wilder Jr.-RB-8700
EDM-Kenny Lawler Jr.-WR-10100
EDM-Derel Walker-WR-5800
EDM-Shai Ross-WR-3400 (SALARY SAVER)
