While Week 14 in the CFL included three games that were decided by four points or less, it instantly became a week we’d all rather forget.
Unnecessary. Ridiculous. Just plain sad.
The Grueling Truth’s own Os Davis wrote an article that gets the point across better than I ever could. Love and respect each other and take the time to hold your loved ones a little tighter this week.

Here’s who I’m rolling with in DraftKings CFL daily fantasy football for week 15…
Jonathon Jennings (BC QB $8,900) – Last week, I tried to save money at quarterback by rolling with Dan LeFevour. What a disaster that turned out to be. This week I’m still going to save money on quarterback but I have a lot more confidence in Jennings and I like the fact that he’ll cost you under $9,000. Jennings is coming off a 278-yard, 2-interception, 2-touchdown performance against an improving Eskimos defense and I expect him to build on that against an Ottawa team giving up over 300 yards per game through the air. Jennings already has major chemistry with Manny Arceneaux, but another full week of practice for Terrell Sinkfield Jr. gives Jennings another talented receiver to torch defenses with.
Brandon Whitaker (TOR RB $6,900) – I don’t know if there’s a player that has surprised me more this year than Brandon Whitaker. After multiple injury-plagued seasons in Montreal, Toronto took a chance on Whitaker last season and it’s really paying off in 2016. He trails only Jerome Messam in yards from scrimmage among running backs and is up against the league’s worst run defense in the Montreal Alouettes this week. Expect another 15 touches for Whitaker as he looks to eclipse both 400 receiving yards and 800 rushing yards on this season this week.
Adarius Bowman (EDM WR $10,900) – It sounds so obvious but Bowman is definitely worth the price of admission. He’s already put up 1400 yards on the season and he leads the CFL in targets by a wide margin with 135. The Blue Bombers have given up the most passing yards in the league, so I expect another big game from AD.
Roy Finch (CGY FLEX $3,600) – Finch is one of three players looking to eclipse 2,000 all-purpose yards this week and he’s by far the cheapest of the three. The issue is that the Stampeders haven’t given him many opportunities from scrimmage but a banged up Jerome Messam means we may see some more Finch on offense. Tory Harris ($3,800) is also worth a look if Messam misses this week.
And just do it! Quincy McDuffie (WPG WR $5,500) – When McDuffie is in the line-up, he’s absolutely electric. McDuffie is averaging 143 yards per game and was back practicing this week. This big play threat does it all from return kicks to make plays on offense. He’s had at least 5 targets in each of his last three games and that includes a 206 yard effort against the Riders in Week 11. If he plays against Edmonton this week, he makes a huge impact.
Best of luck in Week 15!
