NYE’s Crystal Ball: 10 Bold Predictions For 2020 in CFL

2020 is finally here, and the prediction has been that many unexpected things will happen in the CFL.ca. However, we are now bringing the exact expected events to the fore.

The predictions of 2019 has come and gone, and while some happened exactly as predicted, there were some wrong predictions too. For the year 2020, below are the predictions that are expected to come to pass.


There were many quarterback injuries last year, but this year, we are predicting that it’s only a few of the quarterbacks that will see up to 16-18 games. This is a trend that has been on for some time, with Anthony Calvillo being the person to achieve this number of games last in 2004. To make 6,000 yards, an average of 350 yards in each game must be achieved. So, here, Cody Fajardo, Trevor Harris and Dane Evans are expected to achieve these in Saskatchewan, Edmonton and Hamilton respectively.

Lapolice Right Pick In Ottawa

Paul LaPolice is back as the trainer of the Redblacks and he is expected to employ a fresh quarterback. Matt Nichols and Zach Collaros are top on the list for this, and another thing expected from the man is the championship or winning culture that will come with him, owing to his experience in Winnipeg and over the years.

Redblacks Free Agency Fate Reverse

Last term, we witnessed the departure of many attackers, receivers, running backs and quarter backs. This term, during the free agency, GM Marcel Desjardins and the trainer are expected to try to bring in many players during the free agency session, especially offensive players from Winnipeg.

Bombers Fall

The Winnipeg Blue bombers won that of 2019, but won’t win that of 2020. The glimpse of this slump is already being seen in most of their biggest talents being taken away for opportunities in the NFL. They are likely to be at the play-offs, but winning when Edmonton, Calgary and others are there will be an uphill task.

Trevor Harris and Fresh Trainer Scott Milanovich

The quarterback is expected to enjoy the arrival of this fresh coach in Edmonton. Our prediction is that 2020 will see him throwing more than 6,000 yards. He is expected to propel the Eskimos to the height where they will be aiming to emerge victorious in Saskatchewan at the twilight of the season. When the season folds up, Harris may be coasting home with the MOP award.

The Title Goes to the New RB

This is not among the easiest of predictions. It sounds like predicting when the jackpot will be triggered in the Casino Games. But, we are still making it with great faith. How are we predicting that a player with no contract yet in the CFL will arrive and land the rookie of the season trophy in the way James Wilder jr did. So, which team will he come from? Is it from Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or British Colombia?

Riders Rough Ride

After winning 13 the last term, and standing tall above all others in the west division, the Roughriders will find it difficult this term. The new division with mason will be a good thing for Cody Fajardo, but won’t give the riders the wins they will need to stake a full comeback. Though they may have better seasons in years to come, but this season may see them having just 10 wins.

End of the ALS Magic

The Alouettes had a great outing prior to this term, and with Vernom Adams Jr, they were able to climb the rankings. However, the awful performance of their counterparts in the east also caused this, coupled with some luck on their side. Now, the optimism is very valid and the Tiger Cats are expected to make great feats, while the Argonauts and Redblacks will also improve. The prediction is that the Redblacks will get to the playoffs, and this makes it very difficult for Montreal to be on the playoffs without a crossover.

Kamar Jordern

In 2020, this player will stand out as the comeback king. Nobody believed he will still play in 2019, but the receiver surprised all and came back. Though the knee injury is not completely gone, he is expected to be fully fit and to hit at least 1,000 yards this year. This will place the receiving end of the stampedes as one of the best in the CFL.

Hamilton’s Goes Home With the Crown

Having won up to 15 of it last season, we can say that the Hamilton’s winning it this year is not a tall order. They had a very bad outing at the grey cup and must have learnt lessons from that to prepare them for 2020. With Jeremiah back to make the push, and with better players at the backfield, they are great to go.
