March Madness: Best CFL Player of the 2010s

With the lack of sports news in the world right now, now is the perfect time for you to crown the best CFL player from this past decade. Vote away!

Bracket:

  • Regions: Quarterbacks, Canadians, Offence (including kickers), Defence.
  • Players’ seeding: Based on players’ statistics from 2010 CFL season until the end of the 2019 CFL season (July 1, 2010–November 24, 2019).
  • Background colours: Based on the team the player played the most games with from July 1, 2010–November 24, 2019.

I did my research for each player’s seeding, comparing over 40 players per region. Here’s who just missed out in each category:

Quarterbacks: Steven Jyles, Buck Pierce, Cody Fajardo, Vernon Adams Jr.
Canadians: Shea Emry, Rob Bagg, Craig Butler, Cleyon Laing.
Offence: Luke Tasker, Marquay McDaniel, Clarence Denmark, Bryan Burnham.
Defence: Kyries Hebert, Juwan Simpson, Patrick Watkins, Jamall Johnson.
