TORONTO — There’s just one game to choose from this week in TSN CFL Fantasy, but the stakes are higher than ever in the 106th Grey Cup presented by Shaw.

The choices my be limited, but there are plenty of questions facing Fantasy players in the final week of 2018.

It starts with Trevor Harris, who’s looking to solve the Calgary Stampeders after struggling against them this season. Lately, Harris has been the best quarterback in the CFL statistically, throwing 17 touchdowns over his last seven starts.

Facing an elite Calgary defence, however, will be a different challenge.

“We are talking about a completely different test against the Stampeders,” said Pat Steinberg. “I was a little surprised how little pressure we saw Hamilton get on Harris. You can have as good a secondary there is in the league, but if receivers are given that extra second to create separation, it’s too hard for a secondary to cover.

“The thing with the Stampeders is they’re a completely different group up front,” he added. “There are very few teams in this league that are able to get as much pressure as this front four alone. This is a terrifying defensive line, and when you throw in their other looks and bring Singleton from their second and third layers, it’s a different story.

“I do think he’s going to have a whole lot more in terms of pressure on him and I’m curious to see how he reacts.”

Coming off a six-touchdown performance, can Trevor Harris continue his red-hot play against a talented Calgary defence? Meanwhile, are the REDBLACKS’ struggles against Calgary this season a cause for concern?

Steinberg, Jeff Krever and Hannah Nordman discussed some of the difficult questions heading into Sunday’s game in the latest from the CFL Fantasy Podcast:
