The Alcorn State product is now just 49 yards shy of a third straight 1,000-yard campaign, a feat he'll look to accomplish versus the Eskimos in Week 18.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught six passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-25 loss to the Redblacks.

The 30-year-old's numbers have taken a dive from last year in large part due to the struggles of quarterback Jonathon Jennings, but Arceneaux still has 75 or more catches for the third straight season and is 113 receiving yards shy of his third straight 1000-yard campaign. With Jennings showing signs of a rebound, his No. 1 wideout could be poised for a big finish to 2017.

September 23, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux managed five receptions for 62 yards in Friday's 24-23 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

The veteran wideout managed to bounce back after posting just one catch in Week 13, but he remains well below his typically strong career numbers. Arceneaux is averaging a career-low 11.4 yards per catch, while his four touchdowns also represent his worst production in that category over his seven seasons. Quarterback Jonathon Jennings did appear much more comfortable Friday, so there's still hope that Arceneaux can finish off the season on a high note. He'll look to start doing so in Week 16 against the Redblacks following the Lions' Week 15 bye.

September 17, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux notched just one reception for 25 yards in Saturday's 27-13 loss to the Stampeders.

The veteran fell victim to quarterback Jonathon Jennings' struggles, turning in a season low in receptions while coming within six yards of notching his paltriest receiving yardage total of 2017 as well. Instability at the quarterback position has likely contributed to Arceneaux currently logging the lowest YPC total of his career (11.3), but he remains on track to clear the 90-catch mark for the second straight season. He'll look to build towards that goal against the vulnerable Tiger-Cats secondary in Week 14.

September 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux totaled six receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 41-18 win over the Als.

Arceneaux helped Jonathon Jennings get off to a hot start after he replaced Travis Lulay (knee), hauling in a 28-yard scoring strike to cap off the Lions' opening possession. Friday's effort represented the veteran receiver's second 100-yard effort in as many weeks, after not having logged any in the first nine contests of the season. Arceneaux has picked it up after a somewhat lackluster start this season and is back on pace to post his second consecutive 100-reception campaign. He'll look to keep building towards that goal against the Stamps in Week 13.

August 26, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux notched seven receptions for 101 yards in Saturday's 31-24 loss to the Redblacks.

Arceneaux has looked a lot more like his old self the last two weeks, a span during which he's compiled 17 receptions for 190 yards. The 29-year-old wideout is still averaging just 10.3 yards per reception for the season, but he's posted his two best receiving yardage totals of 2017 in the last pair of contests. He'll look to stay hot following the Lions' Week 11 bye.

August 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught 10 passes for 89 yards in Friday's 21-17 loss to the Stampeders.

With both offenses struggling to move the ball, Arceneaux was one of the few stars to supply their usual level of production on the night. In fact, the 10 catches and 89 yards were both season highs for the 29-year-old, who's now tied for third in the CFL in receptions with 50.

August 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux totaled 53 yards on five receptions in Sunday's 41-8 loss to the Riders.

The veteran's production was solid, but it was likely capped by the constant duress that both Jonathon Jennings and Travis Lulay found themselves under courtesy of the Riders' front. While Arceneaux's reception totals have been more than adequate, his struggles to consistently get open downfield have led to a career-low 10.0 yards per reception. The 29-year-old will look to put up more dynamic numbers in a Week 9 showdown against the Stamps.

August 5, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux totaled five receptions for 67 yards in Saturday's 30-15 win over the Riders.

The veteran receiver equaled Bryan Burnham for the team lead in receptions while notching at least five catches for the sixth straight game. Arceneaux's modest 67-yard total was also his second highest of the season, as were his 13.4 yards per catch. The veteran's overall numbers thus far are a bit off his usual pace, and it remains to be seen how Arceneaux's targets will be affected by Chris Williams' entry into the starting lineup.

July 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught a team-high six passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 37-26 loss to Edmonton.

A 17-yard TD catch in the second quarter salvaged Arceneaux's fantasy value on an otherwise quiet night, He's caught at least five passes in five straight games, but the 29-year-old's 9.3 YPC on the year would be by far a career low, as issues at QB for the Lions have limited their ability to stretch the field. Once Jonathon Jennings (shoulder) is back and healthy, expect Arceneaux's yardage to rise.

July 28, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux (shoulder/leg) is set to start Friday's game against the Eskimos.

Arceneaux missed some practice time this week, but he is listed in his regular starting spot on the Lions' depth chart and has not suffered any apparent setbacks leading up to game time, so he appears to be good to go.

July 26, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux (shoulder/leg) is expected to play in Friday's game against the Eskimos, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Arceneaux's injuries have prevented him from practicing this week, but it appears he should still be able to take the field for the Lions' Week 6 contest. If Arceneaux is unable to recover to the point where he can play Friday, Maurice Morgan would likely enter the lineup in his place.

July 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux sat out Tuesday's practice to nurse a shoulder and leg injury, Cam Tucker of the Vancouver Sun reports.

The exact severity of the ailments Arceneaux is dealing with are currently unknown, but it appears as though they aren't too serious considering that he practiced Monday. Arceneaux is coming off a two-touchdown performance Friday, and so long as he is healthy, will continue to be one of the most productive pass catches for the Lions.

July 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught five passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 45-42 win over the Blue Bombers.

The TDs were his first two of the season after the 29-year-old found the end zone a career-high 13 times in 2016. Even with Jonathon Jennings (shoulder) on the sidelines, Arceneaux showed good chemistry with backup Travis Lulay and he should remain productive regardless of which QB is under center for the Lions.

July 6, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught six passes for 48 yards in Thursday's 23-16 win over the Alouettes.

After a quiet Week 1, the 29-year-old has now hauled in 11 passes for 135 yards over the last two games. Bryan Burnham seems to be Jonathon Jennings' top target. but Arceneaux should still see plenty of targets going forward as the Lions' No. 2 option.

June 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caugt five passes for 87 yards in Friday's 28-15 win over the Argos.

The 29-year-old rebounded nicely from a quiet Week 1 performance, serving as a consistent deep threat for Johnathon Jennings against a relatively inexperienced Toronto secondary. Arceneaux may have trouble repeating his huge 2016, but in potent Lions passing game he should be able to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth time in his career.

June 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux collected only 20 yards on three receptions in Saturday's 30-27 loss to the Eskimos.

Last season's leader in receiving touchdowns couldn't muster much in the opener, as the Eskimos appeared to make limiting him a priority. Arceneaux didn't log a catch longer than eight yards among his three receptions, which represented his fewest catches in a game since Week 17 of last season against the Blue Bombers. Given his prominent role in the Lions' passing game in 2016 (105 receptions for 1,566 yards), Arceneaux's involvement is likely to be a priority heading into BC's Week 2 tilt against the Argos.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux caught four passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' final preseason game.

Arceneaux did not play in the Lions' first exhibition game, but his results from the finale indicate he and quarterback Jonathon Jennings are on the same page heading into the regular season. That's hardly surprising, considering Arceneaux finished third in the CFL last year in both receptions and receiving yardage, and first in receiving touchdowns.

November 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arceneaux totaled 56 yards on four catches in Sunday's 32-31 semi-final victory over the Blue Bombers.

Jonathan Jennings' favorite target was lost for good in the third quarter after absorbing a hard hit from the Blue Bombers' Taylor Loffler on a play in which Arceneaux nearly hauled in a touchdown pass. He was helped off the field by the training staff, leaving his status for next week's Western Conference final against the Stamps up in the air. Given that he tallied a CFL-best 13 receiving touchdowns and a team-high 1,566 receiving yards in 2016, Arceneaux's presence will be vital to the Lions' chances of advancing to the Grey Cup.

Coming off a standout eight-catch, 132-yard, two-touchdown effort in Week 18, Arceneaux once again paced the Lions in receiving yards and shared the team lead in receptions with Bryan Burnham.
