Receivers that remain available.
1. Shaquille Johnson, B.C.
Starts in 2018: 16
Key stats: 28 receptions for 336 yards and three touchdowns
Notes: Johnson brings elite speed no matter the passport.
2. Nathaniel Behar, EDM
Starts in 2018: 18
Key stats: 27 receptions for 257 yards and one touchdown
Notes: Behar hasn’t yet lived up to the hype of his first-round draft status, but still very young and flashed potential last season.
3. George Johnson, MTL
Starts in 2018: 17
Key stats: Ten receptions for 147 yards and one touchdown.
Notes: Long and lean, if Johnson adds some bulk and tenacity he could improve.
Also available: Stephen Adekolu, MTL; Devon Bailey, SSK; Rob Bagg, SSK; Felix Faubert-Lussier, HAM; Samuel Giguere, EDM; Anthony Parker, B.C.; Joshua Stanford, MTL
1. Derel Walker, EDM
Starts in 2018: 11
Key stats: 51 receptions for 875 yards and eight touchdowns
Notes: If Walker is fully healthy from the knee injury sustained on Labour Day there is no question the dynamic pass catcher is the best target available.
2. Chris Matthews, CGY
Starts in 2018: 4
Key stats: 12 receptions for 252 yards and one touchdown
Notes: One of the most physical receivers in the league who made a big impact late in the season after joining the Stampeders. Still has NFL aspirations.
3. Naaman Roosevelt, SSK
Starts in 2018: 14
Key stats: 48 receptions for 570 yards and four touchdowns
Notes: Lack of creativity above all else in Saskatchewan’s offence led to Roosevelt’s numbers declining in 2018. Roosevelt is still more than capable of being a go-to receiver within a CFL offence.
4. Manny Arceneaux, B.C.
Starts in 2018: 9
Key stats: 32 receptions for 553 yards and one touchdown
Notes: Arceneaux was on 1,000-yard trajectory prior to a season-ending ACL setback. How quickly the north of 30-year-old can come back from the knee injury will be a major question for interested teams.
5. Chris Williams, HAM
Starts in 2018: 8
Key stats: 25 receptions for 401 yards and one touchdown
Notes: Started to regain his old form last season with some impressive deep catches, but a torn Achilles suffered in August could limit his availability and production in 2019.
6. Terrence Toliver, HAM
Starts in 2018: 12
Key stats: 32 receptions for 456 yards and one touchdown
Notes: Injuries are starting to add up for this veteran, but there aren’t many 6-foot-5 receivers with hands like Toliver’s.
7. Weston Dressler, WPG
Starts in 2018: 13
Key stats: 45 receptions for 535 yards and five touchdowns
Notes: Can still be dynamic at times, but age and injuries are starting to catch-up with the future hall of famer.
8. Adarius Bowman, MTL
Starts in 2018: 17
Key stats: 39 receptions for 467 yards and one touchdown
Notes: If Bowman can bounce back from less than stellar 2018, he could provide some value.
