Quarterback Montreal Alouettes

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
The Alouettes announced Wednesday that Willy was re-signed on a one-year contract.
Willy, who appeared in 12 games and made two starts for Montreal in 2017, will likely slot in as the backup to 2009 NFL first-round pick Josh Freeman, who the Alouettes signed to a two-year deal in January. If Freeman fails to pick up the intricacies of the Canadian game quickly or his conditioning proves to be an issue in his first snaps in a competitive setting since 2015, Willy would make for a quality insurance option, given that he's made 88 appearances during his previous six seasons in the CFL.
