The four players were chosen by a panel of judges that includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde, now of TSN, and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.
Bombers quarterback Joey Elliott earns his second Offensive Player of the Week award of the season, thanks to his big outing against the Montreal Alouettes on Thanksgiving Monday.
Elliott completed 17 of his 25 passes for 335 yards and a career-best three touchdowns, en-route to upsetting the Als 27-22 at Percival Molson Stadium.
The win marked the Bombers' first away from Canad Inns Stadium this season.
The Defensive Player of the Week is Eskimos defensive back Chris Thompson.
Thompson was a force for the Esks in their slump-busting 36-20 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday night, registering two interceptions and three tackles.
His solid play allowed the Esks to end their five-game losing streak, as well as remain in the hunt for the final playoff spot.
Roughriders kicker Sandro DeAngelis was Week 15's top special teams player, as he connected on five of his six field goal attempts, as well all three of his extra points to help the Riders to a convincing 36-10 win over the Toronto Argonauts.
For the third time this season, BC Lions running back Andrew Harris is the Canadian Player of the Week. The Winnipeg native compiled 73 rushing yards and one touchdown on 15 carries, and added another 52 yards on four receptions in BC's 27-22 win over the Stampeders on Saturday night.
Harris was instrumental for the Lions in their effort to maintain first place in the West Division and the best overall record in the CFL.
