Fajardo, Banks headline 2019 All-Fantasy team
TORONTO — With yet another season of TSN CFL Fantasy in the books, it’s time to look back on some of the biggest performers of the 2019 season.
CFL.ca breaks it all down:
2019 CFL All-Fantasy Team
QB Cody Fajardo
SSK | 366.1 Pts
Not only was Fajardo good for passing touchdowns (he scored 18), the Riders pivot called his own number quite often on the goal line, adding 10 rushing touchdowns to his point total. In his first year as a starter, the 27-year-old became a go-to for TSN CFL Fantasy players by the season’s end.
RB Andrew Harris
WPG | 358.3 Pts
Winnipeg’s running back Andrew Harris was a force in 2019, finishing with 1,380 yards on the ground, 10 yards away from tying a career-high, to go along with four majors. He also added 529 yards and four touchdowns on 70 catches.
His production on the ground and through the air made him a favourite for TSN CFL Fantasy users each and every week.
RB William Powell
SSK | 274.9 Pts
Saskatchewan’s running back William Powell was consistently picked among fantasy users – he finished the season as the most picked player with 79,269 selections.
He was a sure-handed option for fantasy users this season and his final point total proves just that. Powell finished just behind Harris for the league’s rushing title in 2019, accumulating 1,093 yards, and was tied with Winnipeg QB Chris Streveler for the most rushing touchdowns (12).
REC Brandon Banks
HAM | 425.4 Pts
2019’s Most Outstanding Player was a must-start for fantasy users.
To go along with his 1,550 yards, Banks found the end zone 13 times and finished as TSN CFL Fantasy’s highest scoring player.
Banks had an incredible season, hitting career-highs in yards, touchdowns and receptions (112).
REC Reggie Begelton
CGY | 343.1 Pts
Reggie Begelton provided fantasy users consistency in 2019 as he became a star receiver on the Calgary Stampeders.
The 26-year-old had a breakout season, his third in Cow Town, racking up 1,444 receiving yards and 10 major scores. His most impressive game was in Week 10 when Begelton hauled in 173 yards and four touchdowns against the Alouettes.
FLEX Bralon Addison
HAM| 333.7 Pts
Week in and week out, Bralon Addsion was a must-start for any fantasy player in 2019.
The second-year Ticat was a perfect one-two punch on Hamilton’s offence along with Banks. Addison collected 1,236 yards and seven touchdowns through the air and was also used out of the backfield, adding 218 yards and a major on the ground.
DEF Winnipeg Blue Bombers
SSK | 202 Pts
They say defence wins championships and that is absolutely true in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ case.
Winnipeg’s defence led all units in the regular season with 202 fantasy points. The Bombers D helped Winnipeg win both the Western Semi-Final and the Western Final before capturing the 107th Grey Cup in Calgary.
When in doubt, fantasy players could rely on the Bombers.
While Banks and Fajardo were the best of the best in 2019, there were plenty of other noteworthy performances.
Vernon Adams Jr. was sensational after taking over the starting role for the Montreal Alouettes, leading the Als to their first playoff berth since 2014. C.J. Gable notched his second-straight 1,000-yard season in Edmonton and John White found his place in the Lions backfield passing 1,000 yards himself.
Let’s take a look at who would make a second All-Fantasy Team:
QB – Vernon Adams Jr. 362.2
RB – C.J. Gable 246.3
RB – John White 228.5
REC – Bryan Burnham 317.5
REC – Greg Ellingson 267.8
FLEX – Eric Rogers 261
DEF – Hamilton Tiger-Cats 170
