CFL DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for Week 7 – 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. $10,400
I was tempted to write up Taylor Cornelius as my core quarterback this week as he should get the start with Trevor Harris out and is minimum salary but his match-up scares the living crap out of me. I also don’t think you need to spend down at the quarterback position this week with so much value elsewhere on the slate. With that said if you want to have heavy exposure to Cornelius this week I could not fault you one bit. For me, I am going to have exposure to Vernon Adams Jr. Adams is coming off a huge game against Ottawa in which he threw for 288 yards and four scores while also adding in 35 rushing yards on his way to 31.02 fantasy points. Adams has now rushed for at least 28 rushing yards in each game this season and has at least 19 fantasy points in three of his four games. Adams is not only producing at an elite level week in and week out but I also love the match-up against BC. BC has allowed the third-most passing yards per game.
RB- James Wilder Jr. $8,900
There is enough value at the wide receiver position that you can afford to roster Vernon Adams Jr. at his salary and still spend up at the running back position which I think you have to this week. My favorite stud running back on this slate is James Wilder Jr. Wilder has at least 15 total touches and at least 80 total yards in each game this season. Wilder also has at least eight fantasy points in each game this season and is averaging 16.8 fantasy points this season which is the most among running backs. Wilder is also in a really good match-up against Winnipeg. Winnipeg has allowed 102 rushing yards per game this season which is fourth-most in the CFL, 5.6 yards per attempt which is most in the CFL, and four rushing scores which are second-most in the CFL.
WR- D.J. Foster $4,100
Foster is actually the Argonauts starting running back but DraftKings has him listed as a wide receiver. While I would have loved to roster Foster as a running back this week I still like him a lot at his salary at wide receiver as the passing game is where Foster does most of his damage. In his two games, Foster has only rushed six times for 15 yards but also has eight catches for 101 yards and a score. His elite pass-catching ability has allowed him to produce at least ten fantasy points in both of his games which is a trend I expect we see continue this week.
