Harris and Williams establish that they are, respectively, the most productive runner and receiver in the league. Green, Rainey, Wilder and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking.

HEROES

Andrew Harris, RB, Winnipeg – The league’s most productive running back, who has 591 yards in five games, accumulated 168 yards and two touchdowns on 17 touches in what turned out to be a 20-17 loss at B.C. Fantasy Points: 32.8

D’haquille Williams, WR, Edmonton – After compiling nine receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown against Toronto, the Eskimos receiver now leads the league in receiving yards…by 170 yards! Fantasy Points: 27.3

S.J. Green, WR, Toronto – The veteran receiver had been relatively quiet through his first three games, but broke out with his best game at Edmonton, catching 10 passes for 131 yards. Fantasy Points: 23.1

Chris Rainey, RB, B.C. – With Jeremiah Johnson suffering a foot injury, the door was opened for Rainey to produce 114 yards on 16 touches in a 20-17 victory over Winnipeg. Mix in some return yardage and it turned out to be a very productive game. Fantasy Points: 22.6

James Wilder Jr., RB, Toronto – Although he struggled on the ground, averaging 2.2 yards per carry, the Argos runner finished with 88 yards and a touchdown on 18 touches in a 16-15 loss at Edmonton. Fantasy Points: 20.8

Don Jackson, RB, Calgary – He didn’t find the end zone in a 27-3 win over Ottawa, but the Stampeders’ rookie runner still put up 126 yards on 18 touches. Fantasy Points: 15.6

ZEROES

Trevor Harris, QB, Ottawa – It was a disastrous game in a 27-3 loss at Calgary, with Harris completing 14 of 22 passes for just 93 yards and two interceptions. Fantasy Points: -0.3

Matt Nichols, QB, Winnipeg – In his second game back in the lineup, the Bombers quarterback crashed hard in the second half, finishing with 214 passing yards and three interceptions. Fantasy Points: 2.6

William Powell, RB, Ottawa – Calgary’s defensive dominance wasn’t limited to Ottawa’s passing game either, as they limited the Redblacks’ main runner to 13 yards on nine touches. Fantasy Points: 2.3

Weston Dressler, WR, Winnipeg – In a 20-17 loss at B.C., the veteran receiver managed just one reception for 14 yards, his worst production of the season. Fantasy Points: 2.4
