RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Reilly completed 20-of-30 pass attempts for 286 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Friday's 38-21 loss to Hamilton. He added five carries for 26 yards and an additional touchdown.
Reilly started the game off with a bang: his first completed pass was a deep bomb that went for an 88-yard touchdown to tie the game at seven. The Ticat defense held strong for the next few drives after that, and Reilly wasn't able to string together a long one until he hit Kenny Stafford on a 55-yard play to set up Edmonton's second touchdown towards the end of the first half. In the fourth quarter, a pass-interference call would put the ball at the Eskimos' 1-yard line, and the Central Washington product converted a QB sneak to bring the score to 38-21. The comeback bid would end there, however, as the 33-year-old was intercepted on his next and final drive of the game. He and the Eskimos will try and bounce back in Week 3 at home against BC.
