CFL Week Six breakdown
Not the most exciting week for finding interesting values sports on DraftKings. Almost every week this year there has been a running back too cheap to pass up. We do have near bare min RedBlacks RB John Crockett, who is just just $3500 on DraftKings, filling in for the injured Moses Madu Jr. The problem is, Ottawa are also starting backup QB Jonathan Jennings in a tough matchup on the road against the Bombers defence. With the Bombers favored by 10 points, that’s doesn’t bode well for Crockett’s game script. Still, if you believe in 2016 Jennings and not 2018 Jennings, fire away with the Redblacks at low prices and low ownership. If you’re not buying into Ottawa, fire up Andrew Harris who’s expensive but likely worth it with a positive game script as a workhorse back at home.
Calgary is the spot to pay up for this week, though you won’t be alone. I like combining Nick Arbuckle with 2 WRs and mixing in both Ka’Deem Carey and Terry Williams. Those RBs may find themselves in a time share, though one could emerge. The Stamps are 12.5 point favorites and have the highest implied total on the slate.
As is often the case with these DraftKings pools, with unbalanced payout structures, and odd contest pricing, there’s going to be layover again this week. As of writing, only 1,700 of 4,117 spots had been filled. On the plus side, it’s one of the only zero rake contests around and it’s not going to last for very long.
