2017 CFL Fantasy All-Stars – Offense

Fantasy Football can be everything from incredibly satisfying, the shot of adrenaline you need during a monotonous day in the office (just kidding, Mr Boss sir. Nobody checks their pools at work!) or it can completely obliterate your state of mind in crushing defeat.

Most of which, are usually held in the hands of the guys on the offensive side of the ball. If you’ve continued to play the game and have become addicted, you’ll generally stack the deck with individual players you would hope will put up big points. Let’s face it, nobody really hopes or plans for their defense to be their highest scoring roster spot week in and week out!

Before we get to the 2017 All-Stars, here are the top 10 drafted players this season as provided to us exclusively by the fine folks at DraftKings.

1) RB Jeremiah Johnson, BC Lions
2) RB Andrew Harris, Winnipeg Blue Bombers
3) REC Brandon Zylstra, Edmonton Eskimos
4) Calgary Stampeders Defense
5) QB Mike Reilly, Edmonton Eskimos
6) REC Greg Ellingson, Ottawa REDBLACKS
7) REC SJ Green, Toronto Argonauts
8) Toronto Argonauts Defense
9) QB Bo Levi Mitchell, Calgary Stampeders
10) RB Jerome Messam, Calgary Stampeders

So as a tribute to those hard working men who put meals on your plate this year, or gave you plenty of fodder for trash talk? Here are your 2017 CFL Fantasy All Stars on Offense, scoring based on DraftKings pricing.
