CFL DFS Picks and Cheat Sheet for Week 6 on DraftKings
We’re back to a full four-game slate for Week 6 in the CFL, and there are a few matchups that could particularly result in fertile DFS environments. We also have players whose salaries don’t match the roles they currently play, which gives them a lot of appeal as value plays out.
Without further ado, let’s jump right into some of the best plays at every position for Week 6 of CFL action:
CFL DFS Picks and Games – Week 6
Quarterback plays for CFL Week 6
Cody Fajardo, SSK to TOR ($10,600): Fajardo is the highest earning player on the slate but worth the investment, considering he’s averaging 19.8 DK points per game and has scored 18.4-25 .1 in three of these contests. Fajardo is struggling with a lingering knee injury that could limit his mobility to some degree, but he’s still working with an impressive line-up of pass-catchers, including an explosive passing pass to Jamal Morrow. Additionally, Fajardo has a chance to bring Kyran Moore (knee) onto the court for the first time this season as the speedster has had limited training the first two days of the week. Meanwhile, the Argonauts have been very vulnerable in the air, giving up 303.0 passing yards per game.
Bo Levi Mitchell, CGY at WPG ($9,900): Mitchell started his season off strong, throwing for 1,112 yards and generating a 6:2 TD:INT in four games while earning a 105.7 QB rating. Mitchell completed over 70.0% of his passes against the Elks in Weeks 3 and 5, and he scored 19.2-22.5 DKs in the last three games. Next, the Blue Bombers put on a deceptively favorable game in the air despite their undefeated status, as they gave up 298.8 passing yards per game. Mitchell also appears to have developed a strong bond with the speedy Malik Henry, who is a great complement to the mid-range exploits of Kamar Jorden and Reggie Begelton.
Zach Collaros, WPG vs. CGY ($8,900): Collaros is making a great play on his salary the other side of the Blue Bombers-Stampeders game, and he’s coming off his best performance of the season in Week 5 against the Lions. Collaros posted 24.3 DK points on a 288-yard effort and three touchdowns in Winnipeg’s big win, and he’ll now face a Stampeders defense that gave up 257.8 passing yards per game despite passing attacks. doubtful the Tiger- Cats and Elks in three of their first four games.
ALSO CONSIDER: Trevor Harris, MTL vs. EDM ($8,200)
Running Back plays for CFL Week 6
Jamal Morrow, SSK to TOR ($9,600): Morrow again produced another solid all-around effort in Week 5, leading to 23.8 DK points on the all-purpose 211-yard force. Morrow has also recorded multiple receptions in every game so far, and he’s now scored 23.8-32.0 DK points in three of his five games. Morrow also recorded double-digit runs in three contests, and the game’s script should certainly give him enough opportunity to do that again in Week 6. The Argos gave up 93.3 rushing yards per contest , which, combined with their vulnerability against the pass. noted in Fajardo’s entry, make it a very attractive all-round target for the fast Morrow.
William Powell, OTT at HAM ($8,600): Powell has looked impressive in his first two games after a late start to the season with an Achilles injury, averaging 5.1 yards per carry in his first 22 racing attempts. Powell is also a very effective receiver out of the backfield, and he could take on at least a slightly heavier workload in Week 6 with Jeremiah Masoli (leg) expected to be out of action and Nick Arbuckle or Caleb Evans under the center for Ottawa. Hamilton gave up 89.3 rushing yards per game, but they gave up 108.5 in the last two games in particular.
Johnny Augustine, WPG vs. CGY ($3,100): The Bombers gave Augustine a bigger role on the court than Brady Oliveira than usual in Week 5 against the Lions, and the strategy seemed to benefit both players. Oliveira carries a $7,000 salary, however, but Augustine is virtually a free square and could potentially edge out his field mate again. Augustine averaged 4.8 yards per carry on 12 rush attempts in Week 5 against BC, and he has the speed to take advantage of a Calgary defense that gave up 140 rushing yards the only backfield they faced who was closest to full health to open a game, that of the Alouettes in Week 1 before William Stanback was injured late in the first half.
ALSO THINK: Frankie Hickson, SSK to TOR ($3,200)
Wide Receiver/Slotback Plays for CFL Week 6
Eugene Lewis, MTL vs. EDM ($10,400): Lewis has an excellent upside due to a robust downline role, and the combination of his sky-high salary and back-to-back lackluster games could certainly keep his roster relatively low. Lewis has averaged a modest 9.5 DK points in his last two games, but he had scored 18.2 and 22.7 DK points in the first two games of the season thanks to a pair of 100-yard performances. Now the veteran speedster, who is sixth in the league in passing yards (312), gets a shot against an Edmonton defense that has given up more than 280 passing yards in three of five games, making him potentially worthy of his five-figure salary.
Duke Williams, SSK at TOR ($8,700): Williams carries a reasonable salary for a player in his upside and with such a favorable game. The veteran has scored 23.1 and 17.6 DK points over the last two games, and he’s recorded at least seven targets in three of the last four contests. Additionally, he’s eighth in the CFL in passing yards (296) and boasts a solid 11.0-yard aDOT, making him a good candidate to exploit the Argos’ vulnerabilities against the pass already noted in the entry of Fajardo.
Malik Henry, CGY at WPG ($6,500): Speaking of receivers with high fantasy ceilings, Henry is quickly proving he belongs in that category after a two-game streak in Weeks 3 and 5 where he tore through the defense of the Elks for a 12-323-2 line of scrimmage. Henry is now fourth in the CFL in passing yards (340) and his 12.6-yard ADOT speaks to a solid role in the field that should certainly continue in the matchup against the Blue Bombers. Winnipeg’s shortcomings against the pass already detailed in Mitchell’s entry should also bode well for a strong comeback from Henry, and his very reasonable salary should certainly facilitate that.
Dalton Schoen, WPG vs. CGY ($5,200): Schoen appears to be a rising star in Winnipeg’s air attack, especially over the past two weeks. The rookie wide receiver has produced a 13-190-2 line on 17 targets in that span, and he is coming off a career-best 8-117-2 line in Week 5 against the Lions who have generated 34.7 DK points. Schoen’s solid 10.2-yard aDOT should play well against a Stamps defense that gave up 297.5 passing yards per game in two road games.

Defensive team plays for CFL Week 6
Montreal Alouettes ($3,500) vs. Edmonton Elks: The Alouettes should be well rested after a bye, and they get a top-notch game against an Elks offense that is already in its third quarterback of the season in Taylor Cornelius now that Tre Ford (shoulder) is out. . Montreal has already been a productive unit as well, averaging 11.3 DK points per game, but they register as the second-lowest paid defense on the slate. The Alouettes were particularly effective after the passer with 13 sacks, and they also had solid ball runs with five interceptions while scoring three touchdowns. Cornelius threw 13 interceptions on 143 pass attempts during his 2021 rookie campaign, and the aforementioned aggressive passing rush could certainly see him commit multiple errors against Montreal.

Total salary expenses: $23.7,000
This trio will take up less than half of your salary cap and will include three players whose production should be fairly locked down. Collaros has a solid game as mentioned earlier, and pairing him with Schoen gives you the opportunity to enjoy what could be a busy night. for them as a battery. Then, Morrow’s versatile role has already led to stellar DK point tallies, giving him one of the highest ceilings on the slate.
