Wide Receiver Hamilton Tiger-Cats
November 4, 2017 Brandon Banks News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Banks gained nine yards and scored a touchdown on his sole rush, posted seven receptions for 76 yards, lost two yards on his two punt returns, netted zero yards on his sole kickoff return and gained 20 yards on a missed field-goal return in Friday's season-ending 33-0 win over the Alouettes.
Banks was literally all over the offensive stat sheet and finished the season on a strong note overall. The veteran speedster put together his best stretch of work as a receiver over the final six weeks of the season, posting five 100-yard efforts and bringing in five touchdowns during that stretch. The late-season surge led to career highs for Banks in receptions (67), receiving yards (1,011) and receiving touchdowns (eight). He still maintained a strong role on special teams as well and posted a punt return touchdown for the fourth consecutive campaign. Given his impressive play in the latter half of the season, Banks should enter 2018 training camp as one of the focal points of the offense.
