RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brescacin could play a larger role for the Stampeders in 2018 than he did a season ago, the Calgary Sun reports.

Brescacin caught just 19 passes in 2017 and the Stampeders are deep at the receiver positions, but with Lamar Durant still working his way back from a knee injury, Brescacin could get more chances to show what he can do early in the season. Brescacin has impressed during training camp, and if that carries over to the regular season, he could continue playing a key role even when Durant is ready to go.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brescacin totaled two receptions for 41 yards in Saturday's 27-13 win over the Lions.

The 24-year-old Northern Illinois product served as an effective complement on the night to Marken Michel and Reginald Begelton. Brescacin has had a solid role in the passing game the last two weeks, as he posted a career-best five receptions against the Eskimos in Week 12. While he's likely still earning the trust of quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, he brings some play-making ability to the table after averaging 14.8 yards per reception and scoring 13 touchdowns on 99 catches over four college seasons. Brescacin will look to continue climbing the ladder against the Roughriders in Week 14.
