Week 1 Fantasy

We are finally here!  The season kicks off tonight in Hamilton with the Riders making the trip out east.  It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest Zach Collaros fan but right now, he’s the best option for the Riders at QB to win football games.  The one saving grace could be the defence if they are able to carry the dominance they had from last year into the start of this season but I don’t think that’s viable…or a recipe for success.

                My Rider fandom aside, we try to bring some kind of analysis and tips for the fantasy aspect of the CFL.  Each week, we’ll look at each matchup and see how each player performs against their opponent that week compared to how they’ve played in the career.  Don’t take these numbers as gospel, they are far from it, but the numbers never lie…except when they do.
