    Fantasy CFL Fantasy Football 2019!

    So the CFL season kicks off on Thursday June 13th!

    Mike Reilly and D'haquille Williams won't be available as semi-automatic picks for Fantasy players with an Eskimo bias this year though. Semi-major adjustments in strategy may be in order.

    Was a fantastic strategy the first half of the year...second half...not so much.

    Games Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019!

    Please join some or all of these Fantasy Leagues I've created for avid fans:

    For Jackie Parker fans:

    Ol' Spaghetti Legs



    For Normie Kwong fans:

    China Clippers



    For those of Baltic ancestry:

    Balticboys



    For old-time ORFU loyalists or those hailing from London:

    London Lords



    And no, I do not get any Fantasy point credits for inducing people to join the Leagues I've set up. The reason I've been beating the drum trying to get more membership for all these Leagues is just because. It's frustrating and disheartening to set up a cool sounding League and getting next to nobody joining. So please join!

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019!

    I'm bewildered by the lack of promotion for this year's TSN CFL Fantasy. Last year previous years' participants were getting emails for Fantasy by April, several in fact before the season kicked off in late June. So far this year I've not received a single communication.

    Well, I've got one Esk in this week, (gut feeling they'll win but it won't be the blow out one would think). C'mon Daniels!

    Doesn't bother me. They have the Raptors run to deal with. Even though I'm not a Basketball fan I feel its a way larger story than a subpar Fantasy game

    Huh? How is the TSN CFL Fantasy game subpar? Are other Fantasy games done better?



    Granted, I wish they'd add a Kicker back into the selection options. Say allow players to allocate $50,000 for a QB, two RBs, two RBs, a FLEX, a Kicker and a Defence.

    I absolutely adore having a week-to-week fantasy to pick, instead of draft systems that can leave people screwed on day one.

    oh I dont know but questionable costs for players. Reilly never going down while Mitchell did. Players who are starting and decent lower than backups in regards to cost. Lack of updating injuries and/or having people still on the lists that aren't on the team anymore.. Basically maintaining the game.

    All those things though just provide opportunities for the shrewd player!

    Dunno. Market segmentation perhaps? I guess you'll have to ask the Commissioner of each league.

    What I do know is that there's surprisingly little love from Fantasy players for all-time greats Jackie Parker and Normie Kwong.

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    So any Fantasy participant who wasn't somewhat skeptical of Trevor Harris' ability to click with new receivers in a different offensive schemes reaped a bountiful harvest of points yesterday evening.



    I was incensed though when Trevor Harris elected to keep the ball himself from just inside the two yard line late in the game instead of handing it off to C.J. Gable who had scampered 23 yards on the previous play to set up the TD.

    I believe there were over 22,000 participants in TSN CFL Fantasy last year but there are only 12,855 participants so far this year. I suspect that the lack of timely promotion for this year's game had a lot to do with the drop in numbers.

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    So mad at myself. For my flex player, first had Don Jackson, then Terry Lewis, then Romar Morris. Forgot to check the Stampeders depth chart so didn’t realize he wasn’t on it...and the other 2 did alright (anything is alright compared to zero).

    Also, note to self: do not choose BC running backs.

    Can’t go anywhere but up. Thank goodness it’s only week 1! ����*♀️

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    I got off to a somewhat better than average start, but I've been seething with frustration and disgust since Saturday evening. I had a choice between Trevor Harris and Bo Levi Mitchell at QB. Now I despise the Stampeders but my head told me to pick Mitchell, a proven commodity going up against a team on which he feasted last year. Harris on the other hand was with a new team with a different crop of receivers. So I went with my head and not with my heart and ended up with a decent week instead of the very good to excellent one I would have had with Trevor Harris! It's really annoying when it turns out that overriding your heart cost you major points in the standings.

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    It seems I can't pick WRs this year if my life (or at least my Fantasy score) depended upon it. In Week One I picked reasonably inexpensive receivers who had come into their own late last year playing for teams with solid established QBs:

    Bralon Addison - 2.6
    Markeith Ambles - 9.6
    Reggie Begelton - 10.5

    The results were at best underwhelming.

    In Week Two I picked two very decent but not super expensive Eskimos' receivers upon the premise that Trevor Harris would have to throw to somebody other than Greg Ellingson occasionally:

    Ricky Collins ($4273) - 2.1
    Kenny Stafford ($4661) - 3.5

    Wrong again. Very, very wrong!

    Hopefully I won't continue to be mistreated and abused by my WRs. It's not nice, that's for sure.

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    So I had a great week in CFL Fantasy anyway:



    Andrew Harris was my "dud" pick.

    Repeating it however will be a tough act....

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2019

    I am absolutely bloody livid today! I spent $11,060, the price of a very good QB, on two positions and I emerged with -1 points yesterday evening! Mathematically there was no way I could have made two worse picks! And of course I briefly considered William Stanback (43.9 points yesterday) whom I rather like for my lineup but logically Sean Thomas-Erlington made far more sense at basically the same price....

    I'm so angry I almost stormed City Hall this morning!
