CFL DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for Week 5 – DraftKings
Looking for a quick consolidated list of options to play today? Let’s take a look at our CFL Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for DraftKings to help navigate this week’s slate!
QB- Vernon Adams Jr. $10,200
It is really close for me for who the top quarterback on this slate is between Adams Jr. and Cody Fajardo. While Fajardo has been more consistent this season I am giving the slight edge to Adams Jr. due to the match-up against the Red Blacks. Ottawa has really struggled on the defensive side of the ball this season especially against the pass. This season Ottawa ranks dead last in passing yards allowed per game at 318.3, dead last in completion percentage allowed at 77.5% which is eight points higher than the next highest team and is allowing the third-highest passing yards per attempt at 8.6 yards. The only thing the Red Blacks have done great is limit the passing score as they have only allowed one this season but that number is bound to regress with how bad their defense has been this season.
RB- Justin Davis $3,800
A cheap starting running back is always going to be attractive to me in the CFL and that is what we have with Davis. Davis got the start for Ottawa last week and while their depth chart is not out yet this week he figures to be at the top of the chart once again after his performance in that last game. Davis had 12 carries for 43 yards and added in four catches for 14 yards on his way to 8.7 fantasy points. The 8.7 fantasy points were the fourth-highest last week with the other three players producing over Davis costing at least $7,900 in salary. While Davis might not be the fourth-highest scoring running back this week he should easily pay off his dirt-cheap salary.
WR- Ryan Davis $3,100
There are a lot of cheap wideouts I like this week and frankly a lot of wideouts that I like regardless of salary this week. Davis is my favorite of the cheap receivers and one of my favorites on the slate. The reason I feel this way is due to the fact that Davis has been producing. Davis has at least four catches in each game this season and has produced double-digit fantasy points in two of his three games.
