DraftKings CFL Week 7 Picks
Our CFL picks have finished in the money in DraftKings GPP’s for 6 straight weeks, and our lineups from last week’s article actually finished in the top 5 of every week 5 GPP. Let’s make it 7 straight weeks of CFL success before we begin to turn our attention to the NFL Preseason.
The QB position is loaded this week. Jonathon Jennings is ridiculously hot, and has ran for a touchdown in two straight games. Mike Reilly can’t stop throwing for 350+ yards, and we expect him to be in a shootout with Henry Burris who is due to have a bounce-back rate. That being said our QB play for week 7 is:
Bo Levi Mitchell
Given the matchup and his current form, I think you have to have a Mitchell lineup in week 7. He has gone over 25 DraftKings points in 4 straight games and faces a horrendous RoughRiders defense this week. That being said, I expect Mitchell and Jennings to each have ownership rates over 30% this week, so I prefer to have a Burris/Williams stack in addition to Mitchell/Parker and/or Jennings/Burnham. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the 3, but would consider Mitchell/Parker to be a lock and Burris/Williams to have the highest upside and lowest ownership.
Given the success Andrew Harris and Winnipeg had on the ground against the Eskimos yesterday, I expect to see Ottawa make an effort to get Grigsby to 15+ carries. In addition, look for him to be more involved in the passing game as well. The Redblacks generally feature their RBs heavily in the pass game, so expect him to get back to 4+ receptions this week.
This Ottawa/Edmonton game has shootout written all over it. We are betting that given the volume is there for Williams and Burris this week, they repeat the success they found against Edmonton in week 1. Given his 1x value over the past three weeks, Williams ownership should be at a season low… just how we like it.
We were excited to see how Toliver looked in his first game back to the TiCats after missing the first 6 from injury. He instantly jumped back into the starting lineup and caught a touchdown pass. Most US fans remember Toliver from his LSU days, but this is actually his second season in the CFL. He went for 48/679/6 as a rookie last season. We love this matchup, coming off bye, with Masoli finally showing some signs of life.
I always come away from watching BC play impressed with Bryan Burnham, but for whatever reason, he has struggled to get consistent PT behind Arceneaux, Gore, and Moore. He’s had back-to-back 100 yard games since Moore’s season ending injury and we expect him to remain a major piece of the Lions offense moving forward.
Speaking of guys that pass the eyeball test… Anthony Parker has looked great since having his playing time increased for Calgary, and he’s our stop Stampeders play this week. We were all over Greg Wilson in last week’s matchup, however we prefer the volume of targets that Parker and Grant are going to get against Saskatchewan vs the inconsistent big plays Wilson provides.
