Each week, we'll take a look at some top performers from the CFL, with an eye to looking ahead to some matchups that could be favourable for TSN Fantasy Football, CFL Edition, presented by Joseph Abboud.

Here are some of the best from Week 10 and players to watch for Week 11:


Zach Collaros, QB, Hamilton (27-for-38, 317 YDS, 1 TD vs. Toronto) - Welcome back, Zach! In his first game since July 4, Collaros delivered a strong performance against his former team, posting the third 300-yard passing game of his career. With Collaros back, the TiCats might have a little more working in their favour offensively.

Jon Cornish, RB, Calgary (163 YS, 1 TD, 17 rushes vs. Edmonton) - In Cornish's second game back from his early-season concussion, the reigning MOP gashed the Eskimos defence for 9.6 yards per carry. Can he, in half a season, make up the 253 yards that he is behind league-leading rusher Nic Grigsby?

Wallace Miles, WR, Ottawa (7 REC, 101 YDS, 1 TD at Montreal) - There hasn't been a lot of consistency from the Redblacks' receiving crew, with different guys emerging from week to week, but Miles has gone for 100-plus yards with a touchdown twice in the past four games, so he counts as the hot target for Henry Burris.


Emmanuel Arceneaux, WR, B.C. - The league's fourth-leading receiver, with 481 yards this season, despite two catches for nine yards against the Riders a couple weeks ago, Arceneaux should be able to get back on the horse this week, facing Ottawa's league-worst pass defence and with Travis Lulay expected back under centre. No one with at least 20 catches is averaging more than Arceneaux's 16.6 yards per reception this season, so he's the prime big-play threat for the Lions.

Jonathan Crompton, QB, Montreal - There has been a revolving door at quarterback for the struggling Alouettes, and the latest to start is Crompton, a second-year CFLer who played for Tennessee in college. Crompton hasn't thrown a touchdown pass yet this season, but has completed better than 60% of his passes for 511 yards in the past couple games, good enough to think that he can move the ball against a Hamilton team allowing more than 260 passing yards per game.

Rory Kohlert, SB, Winnipeg - With Nick Moore sidelined due to a high ankle sprain (and Aaron Kelly already out), the Bombers need some lesser-knowns to take on a bigger role in the passing game. Kohlert, a Saskatchewan native, tied a season high with four catches against the Riders last week and while he hasn't been a deep threat, he does have 139 receiving yards over the past four games and could be in for a bump with a few more looks from QB Drew Willy.
