Well, things got better for my fantasy picks in week two. I had three of four correct winners in Total CFL Pick ‘Em with only the Stamps falling short at home. I picked up 439 points this week to move my season total into positive numbers at 192.1 points.
The top score of the week went four-for-four in picks, scoring 910 points.
In CFL Fantasy it wasn’t a great week, but I did make some gains on the competition. In Week one we were in 5570th place, but our Week two picks — while only putting up 58.9 points, placed 4363rd for the week, moving my season position to 5063 with a total of 122.5 Points. The season leader sits at 230.5.
The week’s best lineup of Cody Fajardo, Kienan LaFrance, Terry Williams, Lucky Whitehead, Kenny Lawler, Nic Demski and the Rider Defence went for 113.7 points.
In DraftKings I hit five winners out of six total entries in the full slate four-game Classic mode, a head-to-head victory in a non-cash game and four out of five cashing (including the lineup we gave you here last week). Even though we had a QB who did not play in three of those lineups, we still found victory.
Our best four-game lineup consisted of Vernon Adams, Jr (19.34), William Stanback (14.2), Mario Alford (16.3), Kamar Jorden (9.8), William Powell (12.7), Ricky Collins, Jr (7.55) and the Bombers defence and special teams (11). Worth a total of 90.89 points and good for 123rd place (668 cashed in this 1703 entry contest).
Our Winnipeg Vs. Toronto Showdown lineup of Eric Rogers (9.9), McLoud Bethel-Thompson (2.8), Zach Collaros (18.88), Kenny Lawler (20.79) and Brady Oliveria (5.2) — which we gave you here last week — went for a three-point victory in a non-cash head-to-head contest.
On Saturday, my two-game Classic mode lineup (again, which we gave you here Friday) was good for first place in a 23 entry cash contest and first in a 10-entry non-cash contest. It put up 100.48 points and consisted of Cody Fajardo (29.48), James Wilder, Jr (8.5), Kyran Moore (16.1), Quan Bray (4), Jaelon Acklin (8.1), Mario Alford (16.3) and the Riders defence and special teams (18).
Also, the Riders/Ticats Showdown lineup we gave you of Fajardo, Jeremiah Masoli (8.5), William Powell (12.7), Moore and Acklin was in cash position as 74.88 points was good for 20th place out of 356 entries.
I mentioned that I was tempted to add a late lineup that included Brandon Banks, which I did — but that didn’t turn out so well.
All-in-all, nine wins out of 11 plays, a much better week than Week one and something to hopefully build on in Week three.
