Below is a futures report for each CFL team with corresponding odds to win the Grey Cup. The defending champion Blue Bombers are favored to pull off a three-peat, but what teams below the market pacesetters represent value at this point of the offseason?
Winnipeg Blue Bombers (): The Blue Bombers return head coach Mike O’Shea and quarterback Zach Collaros, which could well be the foundation for a third straight Grey Cup. Winnipeg did see talented but aging running back Andrew Harris depart in free agency, but they also added a proven, explosive pass catcher in Greg Ellingson and still boast what should be one of the league’s top defenses.
Saskatchewan Roughriders (): The Roughriders looked like legitimate Grey Cup contenders at one point early last season, and while they did finish with a solid 9-5 record, they fell just short of reaching the title game when they were edged by the eventual champion Blue Bombers, 21-17, in the West Division Finals. Saskatchewan returns all its critical components as well, with quarterback Cody Fajardo, Duke Williams, Shaq Evans and Kyran Moore among those who could play key roles again in 2022.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats (): The Dane Evans Era begins in earnest this season in Hamilton after long-time signal-caller Jeremiah Masoli departed to Ottawa in free agency. Talented young wideout Jaelon Acklin joined him as well, but the Ti-Cats, which went 8-6 last season and lost to the Argonauts in the East Division Finals, aren’t exactly starting over at quarterback. Evans played in all 18 games in 2019, throwing for 3,754 yards and producing a 21:13 TD:INT, while the likes of running back Don Jackson and incumbent wideouts Steven Dunbar, Tim White and Bralon Addison make for the foundation of a strong supporting cast.
Toronto Argonauts (): The Argos added Harris and Brandon Banks to last year’s East Division-winning squad and are banking on getting another productive year out of mobile veteran McLeod Bethel-Thompson.
Calgary Stampeders (): The Stampeders finished with a solid 8-6 mark last season and have veteran Bo Levi Mitchell back in the fold, while the likes of holdovers Ka’Deem Carey, Reggie Begelton and Kamar Jorden provide him with a strong array of skill-position mates.
Montreal Alouettes (): The chances of the Alouettes surprising and improving significantly on 2021’s 7-7 mark will largely hinge on how well Vernon Adams performs as the starting quarterback and whether Trevor Harris can step in effectively if called upon. Speedy and versatile running back William Stanback and pass catchers Geno Lewis and Jake Wieneke are other productive pieces that return in ’22.
Edmonton Elks (): Former Blue Bombers receiver Kenny Lawler joins a talented group of receivers and slotbacks, but the big question will be whether new starter Nick Arbuckle can consistently get them the ball.
BC Lions (): The Lions move from the retired Mike Reilly to Nathan Rourke under center, who likely isn’t fully prepared to maximize a solid group of targets that includes Shaq Johnson, Lucky Whitehead and Bryan Burnham.
Ottawa Redblacks (): The additions of Masoli and Acklin should net some improvement on last year’s East Division-worst 3-11 record, but Ottawa still has plenty of questions at running back and a lack of depth at receiver and slotback.
