The latest Canadian Football news from RotoWire's experts.
RotoWire AnalysisThe Roughriders will certainly be happy to have Carter, the team's No.1 receiver, for Saturday's contest. This season, he's tallied 642 yards and eight touchdowns on 50 receptions over 11 games.
RotoWire AnalysisTaken off the six-game injured list Friday, Jones will jump right back into handling return duties for the team. As a result, Marcus Thigpen will be relieved of that role.
RotoWire AnalysisWhile the depth chart for Sunday's game has yet to be released, there's a solid chance Jones will end up back returning kicks and punts for the team. Prior to his injury, he returned 11 punts for 198 yards and four kicks for 94 yards across three games.
RotoWire AnalysisThe receiver and returner was a member of the Roughriders last year, recording two receptions for 32 yards and returning 33 punts for 359 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown. He was most recently released by the team during this year's training camp, but the organization has seemingly found a need for him in their gameplan.
RotoWire AnalysisFlanders -- listed on the roster as a running back -- has essentially played a slotback role for a few weeks, according to Ed Tait of BlueBombers.com, but this week he will officially do so. Flanders averaged just over six touches per game over the last five contests, and he figures to play a similar role in Week 14.
RotoWire AnalysisWith both Trevor Harris and Drew Tate dealing with shoulder injuries, Lindley, as expected, will get the start Friday. Tate is listed as the No. 3 quarterback, so while he likely will be active, he's only expected to take the field in an emergency situation. Lindley completed 7-of-14 passes for 76 and one interceptions in emergency duty last week.
RotoWire AnalysisHarris was placed on the six-game injured list last week ahead of the team's contest with the Alouettes, and while there was some optimism surrounding the quarterback after he was seen throwing at practice Wednesday, the team will remain cautious. Given that Harris was active this week, however, there is a chance he could be activated early. Ryan Lindley is set to start at quarterback for the Redblacks this week.
RotoWire AnalysisMurray-Lawrence will be deactivated for the second week in a row while he continues to recover form injuries sustained in a car accident earlier this month.
RotoWire AnalysisScheuerman has been shuffled all over the Tiger-Cats' roster this season, and he will spend this week on the injured list. Alex Green will be Hamilton's top running back in Friday's matchup with the Lions.
RotoWire AnalysisChambers may have opened in a reserve role if not for the suspension levied on fellow receiver Mike Jones, but with Jones out this week, Chambers will jump right into the starting lineup for his new squad. Chambers caught just four passes in six games with the Eskimos this season, but he could get a chance to play a bigger role for the Tiger-Cats.
RotoWire AnalysisGable is coming off a performance in last week's loss to the Riders where he got just seven carries for 26 yards, which was his lowest output since Week 8. Newly re-signed running back Alex Green is listed as the starter for Friday's contest, so Gable could be in for a very minor role against the Lions.
RotoWire AnalysisThis comes as a bit of a surprise given that Green was just recently added to the Tiger-Cats' practice roster under two weeks ago, but it looks like the team is giving the tailback the opportunity to take on a starter's workload. Sean Thomas-Erlington is listed as Green's backup while C.J. Gable will serve as the third-string running back Friday.
RotoWire AnalysisFantuz recently re-signed with Hamilton after spending a year off as the team's coordinator of player development while recovering from a torn ACL. The wideout posted 101 catches for 1,059 yards in 2016, but it looks like he'll be eased back into the swing of things with the Tiger-Cats. Expect a full return to the field soon for Fantuz.
RotoWire AnalysisTate was seen as a "possibility" to play in Friday's game, and while it looks like the quarterback will be active, he likely won't be used as anything more than an emergency option under center. Ryan Lindley is listed as the starting quarterback for the Redblacks.
RotoWire AnalysisStangby was not at practice Wednesday, so his absence Friday doesn't come as much of a surprise. Stangby remains without an exact timetable, however, so he should be considered week-to-week at this point.
RotoWire AnalysisMcDuffie has been on the injured list since Week 9, but will finally make his return this Friday. Coach Rick Campbell noted that the Redblacks will use both McDuffie and Diontae Spencer against the Blue Bombers in order to take advantage of each of their big play abilities.
RotoWire AnalysisThe good news for Messam and those hoping to use him in this week's fantasy lineups is that he did not suffer a concussion, so he seemingly will not have to be cleared of symptoms in order to take the field this week. However, given that he is dealing with an injury in the head area, the Stampeders still figure to be cautious with him, so it's too early to tell if he will play in Week 14.
RotoWire AnalysisCarter's ankle injury limited him to just one catch for five yards in Week 13, but it appears the setback will not prevent him from playing this week. His availability for Sunday's matchup with the Stampeders will ultimately be determined later this week.
RotoWire AnalysisWhile still not fully cleared, Glenn's listing as No.1 on the depth chart ahead of Sunday's contest and his participation during Wednesday's practice are good signs for his availability. Considering him questionable under further word emerges is likely the safest bet, however.
