DAVE DICKENSON - QB - B.C. LIONS

When Dickenson is healthy, is there a better quarterback in the league? Answer: No. With the ability to thread the ball through the smallest opening, Dickenson was incredible in Week 1, throwing five TD passes in just three quarters against Saskatchewan. The B.C. Lion pivot finished 28-33 for 362 yards.

JOFFREY REYNOLDS - RB - CALGARY STAMPEDERS

Reynolds averaged a meagre 26 yards in three regular-season games against the Esks last year and then fumbled twice in the West semifinal. But he torched them for 153 yards last Saturday.

RICKY WILLIAMS - RB - TORONTO ARGONAUTS

Under intense pressure, Williams gained 97 yards against the Tabbies.

GEROY SIMON - SB - B.C. LIONS

Simon was Dickenson's favourite target, grabbing two touchdowns and 110 yards.

ED HERVEY - WR - EDMONTON ESKIMOS

Called out by Nik Lewis, Hervey responded with his best game in more than a year with 116 yards on nine catches.

DAMON DUVAL - K- MONTREAL ALOUETTES

The true sign of a professional is being able to battle adversity and become a star. Duval missed two field goals during the early stages against Winnipeg, but finished four-for-six, including a clutch 45-yard kick to put the nail in the coffin of the Bombers.

TIM STRICKLAND - LB - MONTREAL ALOUETTES

Strickland had four - yes four - sacks against Winnipeg.

MIKE MCCULLOUGH - LB - SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS

The Riders are hoping to play a Canadian linebacker in the middle of the defence - and McCullough filled the role rather well last Saturday with two sacks and four tackles and kept Antonio Warren in check against the Lions.

NOEL PREFONTAINE - P - TORONTO ARGONAUTS

Prefontaine averaged nearly 48 yards a punt.

CHIP COX - DB - MONTREAL ALOUETTES

After an outstanding pre-season, rookie defensive back Cox had two INTs for the Als, including one that led to the tying field-goal in a second-half comeback.
