CFL Fantasy Podcast, Week 21: Don’t get tricked + playoff teaser

Matt Smith/

TORONTO — It all comes down to this.

We are four games away from determining a winner in TSN CFL Fantasy, as the season-long $10,000 contest draws to a close on Saturday night in Vancouver.

With an additional $1,000 up for grabs through this week’s Triple Play Contest, there’s plenty on the line in the CFL’s final regular season week. But that’s about all the clarity you’ll find, as the Week 21 slate brings plenty of new challenges with playoff-bound teams poised to rest starters.

As questions surround several of the CFL’s top stars, Pat Steinberg, Jeff Krever and Hannah Nordman try to piece it all together on this week’s CFL Fantasy Podcast:

Only one team, the Calgary Stampeders, can influence the post-season picture when they visit the BC Lions on Saturday. The Stamps will be fired up as they try to win their third straight West Division title, meaning Bo Levi Mitchell, Don Jackson and Eric Rogers, among others, are considered safe picks this week.

Elsewhere, however, some research may be required. The REDBLACKS have already stated that Trevor Harris, William Powell, Diontae Spencer, Brad Sinopoli and Greg Ellingson won’t play Friday night vs. Toronto. Questions also surround other playoff-bound stars like Jeremiah Masoli, Matt Nichols, Andrew Harris and Tyrell Sutton.

This week the podcast trio also discussed Mike Reilly, James Franklin, locks and bargain buys, and even dropped new information on the playoff edition of the game starting next week — with more weekly prizes to be won — in the latest from the CFL Fantasy Podcast.
