Running Back BC Lions
July 15, 2018 Chris Rainey News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Rainey rushed 10 times for 43 yards and caught six passes for 71 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over Winnipeg.
Rainey stepped in late in the first quarter for Jeremiah Johnson, who departed due to an undisclosed injury, and had his first 100-yard game of the season. The 30-year-old was all over the comeback win in both the return game and on offense, most notably with his 33-yard catch that set up the Lions' first score of the day. Should Johnson need to miss time, Rainey would be a dual-threat fantasy option, starting Week 6 at Ottawa.
