Wide Receiver Hamilton Tiger-Cats

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Saunders posted seven receptions for 118 yards in the Tiger-Cats' 28-14 loss to the Stampeders on Saturday.
Last season, the former Sooner made considerable strides as a receiver, racking up 1,170 yards through the air and adding another 190 on returns. Saunders is poised to take another leap forward in his second CFL campaign, given both his speed and established rapport with quarterback Jeremiah Masoli. The 25-year-old picked up right where he left off last season on Saturday, and Masoli notably looked his way on four occasions over the final two drives in which the Ti-Cats still had a chance at catching the Stampeders. Fellow pass catcher Luke Tasker and Mike Jones will serve as formidable competition for targets, but Saunders appears likely to enjoy a sizable role in his own right. He'll look to build on his stellar Week 1 effort when Hamilton tangles with Eskimos in Week 2.
