RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (neck) is expected to miss the rest of the 2018 season, Jason Dunk of 3DownNation.com reports.

Ray recently suffered a neck injury in a matchup with the Stampeders and he ended up spending two nights in the hospital while undergoing tests. He was spotted sporting a brace when he was discharged from the hospital Monday and he's now expected to avoid contact entirely for several months. As a result, the 38-year-old is expected to be done for the season, which means James Franklin is set to take over starting quarterback duties.

Ricky Ray: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

June 25, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (neck) has no timetable for a return after being released from the hospital Monday.

James Franklin will now be given the reins in Toronto as Ray is expected to miss most of the season ahead, despite not having a specific timetable for a return to action.

June 25, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (undisclosed) completed 12-of-17 pass attempts for 74 yards in Saturday's 41-7 loss to the Stampeders.

Ray was sandwiched between two defenders on a third-quarter sack and appeared to bend his neck awkwardly against one of them on the way down. Prior to that, he had been unable to sustain a drive of any significance as the Argonauts were down 34-1 when the injury occurred with 4:40 left in the quarter. With the 38-year-old presumably out for the foreseeable future, backup James Franklin should take over under center.

June 24, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (neck) stayed in a hospital Saturday night and has feeling in all extremities after being removed from their loss to Calgary, Kate Pettersen of TSN Radio reports.

The big news here is that the 38-year-old quarterback has not lost any feeling throughout his body and is not showing any symptoms of a concussion following a scary take down Saturday. While it doesn't appear he will be back anytime soon, his overall health is a positive sign moving forward. James Franklin replaced him in the loss and went 8-for-13 for 65 yards while adding a touchdown with his feet, so he figures to keep getting the assignment until Ray is cleared to play.

June 23, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (undisclosed) is being pulled out of Saturday night's game against Calgary.

It looks like it could be an extremely serious injury for the quarterback as the team brought the stretcher out on the field. Per Danny Austin of the Calgary Sun, it appeared that the Ray's head made contact with defensive lineman Cordarro Law. Updates on Ray will probably be scarce until after the game and the following days, but James Franklin will replace him as the signal caller for the completion of Saturday's game.

June 16, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 22 of 37 passes for 233 yards and an interception in Friday's 27-19 loss to Saskatchewan. He also rushed once for eight yards.

The Argonauts' Grey Cup title defense fell flat on Friday as Ray and Co. had difficulty mustering any offense until late in the game. While the veteran signal caller did lead a couple of drives deep into Roughrider territory in the fourth quarter, backup James Franklin finished the first with a short rushing touchdown and passed for another to cap off the second. In between the two scores, Ray threw a pick-six that turned out to be the final nail in the Argos' coffin. The 38-year-old will try to rebound at home against Calgary in Week 2.

June 14, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray will start at quarterback in Friday's season opener against the Roughriders.

Ray's placement atop the depth chart comes as no surprise after he led the Argonauts to the Grey Cup title a year ago and re-signed with the team during the offseason. Ray is 38 years old, but with ample weapons around him and head coach Marc Trestman still overseeing the offense, don't expect his age to slow him down.

February 2, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray will return to Toronto for the 2018 season after signing a one-year deal with the team Friday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Although Ray was considering retirement over the winter, it appears as though the 38-year-old will be back in action for the 2018 campaign. In addition to winning a fourth Grey Cup this past season, Ray accumulated 5,546 yards and 28 touchdowns through the air. The team also signed quarterback James Franklin this offseason, but the starting job will likely be Ray's to lose.

November 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray is considering retirement during the 2017 offseason, Drew Edwards of 3DownNation.com reports.

Coming off his fourth Grey Cup victory, Ray said that he's considering retiring after his 16 season CFL career. The 38-year-old quarterback threw for 5,546 yards and 28 touchdowns last season.

November 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 19 of 32 passes for 297 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 27-24 Grey Cup victory over the Stampeders. He also completed a pair of two-point conversion passes.

The ageless veteran capped off a record-setting season with an outstanding comeback effort to secure his CFL-record fourth Grey Cup championship. Despite the frigid weather and top-ranked Stampeders defense making matters difficult throughout most of the contest, Ray was able to step up with some impact plays when it mattered, firing a 100-yard touchdown pass to DeVier Posey on the first play of the second quarter and eventually leading Toronto down the field with four completions to set up Lirim Hajrullahu's go-ahead 32-yard field-goal attempt with 53 seconds remaining, a kick that would prove to be the difference in the contest. Ray was also able to convert a couple of key two-point opportunities with passes to running back Declan Cross, the second which knotted the game at 24 following Cassius Vaughn's record 109-yard fumble recovery touchdown return. The championship win caps off Ray's 16th CFL campaign in fine fashion, one in which he threw for a career-best 5,546 yards. The victory would be a fitting way to cap off a surefire Hall of Fame career, but it remains to be seen if Ray will opt to return for a 17th season in 2018 and spearhead the Argonauts' defense of their title.

November 20, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 28 of 39 passes for 266 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 25-21 Eastern Final win over the Roughriders.

Ray and the Argonauts' offense as a whole seemed to be stuck in neutral for a good portion of the contest, but the ageless field general saved his best for last. Down 21-18 with two minutes remaining, Ray helmed a game-winning 45-yard drive that culminated in a Cody Fajardo one-yard sneak for a go-ahead touchdown. While his passing yardage total was somewhat ordinary by his lofty standards, Ray connected with seven different pass catchers and came through when his team needed it the most. However, he'll face a tough challenge in next week's Grey Cup against a Stampeders defense that was the best in the CFL throughout the 2017 season.

November 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 26 of 34 passes for 341 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 40-13 win over the Lions.

Ray was locked in from the start of the contest, connecting with eight different pass catchers and hitting S.J. Green, DeVier Posey and Declan Cross for his three scores. The veteran heads into the postseason on the heels of the second-highest passing yardage (5,546) and touchdown totals (28) of his career. Given the prolific results that head coach Marc Trestman's offense yielded throughout the campaign, Ray and the Argonauts look like they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs.

October 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 32 of 43 passes for 423 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 29-28 win over the Blue Bombers.

Ray eclipsed the 5,000-yard mark on the season for the first time since 2008 and fourth time overall in his career. The prolific veteran connected with seven different pass catchers overall and clearly benefited from the return of James Wilder, Jr. to the lineup after a one-game absence due to an undisclosed injury. Ray has surpassed the 300-yard mark in four consecutive contests overall and has at least one touchdown in seven straight games. The victory vaulted the Argonauts into first place in the East Division ahead of their Week 19 bye, moving Ray closer to a postseason opportunity.

October 15, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 32 of 42 passes for 362 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Saturday's 30-27 loss to Edmonton.

Coach Marc Trestman's offense is humming, and while it isn't necessarily leading to wins for the 7-9 Argos, it is boosting Ray's fantasy value. The veteran QB has topped 300 passing yards in three straight games and 11 of 15 games this season, and he's second in the CFL in both passing yards (4,782) and completion percentage (70.4) while sitting fourth in TD passes with 24.

October 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 29 of 39 passes for 341 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 27-24 loss to the Roughriders. He also gained five yards on his sole rush.

Ray put together one of his customarily prolific efforts, connecting with S.J. Green and Martese Jackson for touchdowns in the process. The ageless veteran also compiled his second straight 300-yard and multi-touchdown effort, and his 19-yard scoring dart to Green with 4:01 remaining helped bring the Argonauts within a Lirim Hajrullahu point-after conversion of a 24-24 tie. Ray continues to essentially be a must-start each week, as he's positively thrived in head coach Marc Trestman's system. He'll look to keep up his stellar play against the Eskimos in Week 17.

September 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 25 of 38 passes for 330 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 43-35 overtime victory against the Tiger-Cats. He also rushed once for 10 yards.

Ray had been relatively quiet while James Wilder, Jr. dominated the opposition on the ground over the last two weeks, but he stepped up when needed Saturday. The veteran connected with Armanti Edwards for one of his three touchdowns and then hooked up with DeVier Posey on a pair of others, the first capping off a game-tying fourth quarter drive and the second serving as the game-winning score in overtime. Ray tallied his first 300-yard effort since Week 11 in the process and generated a 6:2 TD:INT ratio in three games against the Tiger-Cats this season. With his production Saturday, the 37-year-old also cleared the 4,000-yard - and 20-touchdown marks for the first time since the 2014 campaign. He'll look to keep the Argonauts' playoff push going versus the Roughriders in Week 16.

September 24, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 18 of 24 passes for 182 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 33-19 win over the Alouettes.

With a 26-0 lead by halftime and RB James Wilder, Jr. running wild for a second consecutive week, Ray didn't have to do much to help secure the win. He did manage a 16-yard scoring strike to S.J. Green just before halftime, his fourth touchdown over the last three games. The veteran has shown he can easily turn it on through the air when necessary, so his reduced production over the last two weeks is simply a product of game flow. Ray and the Argonauts hit the road to take on a resurgent Tiger-Cats team in Week 15.

September 16, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 22 of 32 passes for 224 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 34-26 win over the Eskimos.

Ray couldn't quite put up his customary numbers against the Eskimos' stingy secondary, generating his second sub-300-yard effort in the last three contests. However, Ray did manage to complete an impressive 68.8 percent of his throws while allowing running back James Wilder, Jr. to do the majority of the heavy lifting. Ray does have at least one touchdown throw in all but two games this season and will look to bounce back yardage-wise versus the Alouettes in Week 14.

September 5, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 34 of 47 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Monday's 24-22 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

It was a solid rebound effort from the veteran QB after a quiet performance in Week 10 against the Stamps, but a missed field goal in the last minute kept the Argos out of the win column. Ray is now second in the CFL with 3,343 passing yards despite the fact that he's missed one game.

August 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 22 of 34 passes for 220 yards in Saturday's 23-7 loss to the Stampeders.

The Argos couldn't get anything going on offense in this one, as their only score came on a 115-yard interception return. The Stamps' defense has now held Ray to 359 passing yards and one TD with one INT in two games -- although the veteran QB left the first one early with a shoulder injury -- while he's averaging 379.9 yards over seven games against the rest of the league with a 13:4 TD:INT. As such, expect him to rebound in impressive fashion next week against the Ti-Cats.

August 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) completed 35 of 43 passes for 377 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 38-6 win over the Als.

Ray emphatically put any doubts about the fitness of his ailing shoulder to rest early and often, generating his best touchdown total of the season. The veteran kept his streak of passing for over 300 yards in each contest in which he's played in all four quarters alive and completed an eye-popping 81.4 percent of his throws. Now that he's obviously back to full health, Ray resumes his role as an elite fantasy option each week. He'll look to put together another stellar performance in what could be a Week 10 shootout against the Stamps.

August 18, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) will start Saturday's game against the Alouettes, SportsCentre reports.

Signs earlier this week pointed toward Ray starting Saturday, and the Argonauts' depth chart confirms that he will indeed be back under center this week after sitting out last week's loss to Montreal. Outside of the Week 7 contest he was forced to exit early due to his shoulder injury, Ray has thrown for at least 327 yards in every game this season.

August 17, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) is expected to start Saturday's game against the Alouettes, The Toronto Star reports.

Ray missed Toronto's Week 8 matchup with Montreal due to his shoulder injury, but after practicing this week, it appears he will be back under center for Saturday's rematch. That will be good news for an Argonauts offense that struggled to get anything going last week in Ray's absence. Final confirmation on Ray's status for Week 9 will come when the Argonauts release their depth chart for the week Friday.

August 15, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) took the first-team reps at Tuesday's practice, TSN's David Naylor reports.

Ray missed last week's game due to the injury he suffered in the previous contest, but with him participating in Tuesday's session, he may be able to avoid missing any further action. That would be great news for the Argonauts, who struggled to get anything going offensively last week in Ray's absence.

August 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) will not play in Friday's game against the Alouettes, TSN's David Naylor reports.

While Ray is believed to be dealing with a minor setback and not an injury that would sideline him 4-to-6 weeks as originally reported, he has not been able to throw in practice this week and will miss at least one game as a result. Head coach Marc Trestman has not revealed who will start Friday in Ray's place, but it's likely either Cody Fajardo or Jeff Mathews will get the nod.

August 6, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (shoulder) is day-to-day and may be able to play Friday against the Alouettes, Didier Ormejuste of RDS reports.

Ray was initially diagnosed as out for 4-to-6 weeks with a separated shoulder, but it appears there is optimism he could return much sooner than expected. Look for more updates on his status in the near future.

August 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray has been diagnosed with a separated AC joint in his shoulder and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, David William Naylor of TSN reports.

Ray left Thursday's game against Calgary after taking a hit from defensive lineman James Vaughters, and as a result, he'll be out for at least the next month of the season. Toronto's September 4 game against the Tiger-Cats seems like the earliest Ray will be able to return, and in that time, look for backup Cody Fajardo to take over under center.

August 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray was removed from Thursday's game against Calgary with an apparent shoulder injury.

Ray was forced to leave the game in the third quarter after taking a hard hit from Stampeders defensive lineman James Vaughters. The starting quarterback was 15-for-26 with 139 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by Cody Fajardo under center. His status should be updated after he undergoes further evaluation following Thursday's contest.

July 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 28 of 38 passes for 386 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 38-27 loss to the Riders. He also gained a yard on his sole rush.

While it was disappointing team outcome at game's end, Ray continued to turn back the clock by putting together yet another near 400-yard and multi-touchdown effort. The veteran connected with three different pass catchers for his scores and has thrown for no fewer than 327 yards in any of his six games this season. Meanwhile, after tallying just one passing touchdown apiece in each of his first two games, Ray has now hit pay dirt through the air on multiple occasions in three of the past four contests. He continues to be an elite DFS option each week and will look to extend his torrid start to the campaign when the Argos face the Stamps in Week 7.

July 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 40 of 55 passes for 367 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's 27-24 win over the Redblacks.

The 55 attempts were a season high for Ray, who continues to pile up big numbers in head coach Marc Trestman's offense. The veteran QB is now averaging over 45 passes and 379.2 yards a game, although his 6:3 TD:INT on the year could use some improvement. Ray will try to keep the Argos offense rolling in Saskatchewan on Saturday.

July 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 27 of 46 passes for 330 yards with two interceptions in Thursday's 33-25 loss to the Blue Bombers.

While the veteran QB was able to keep the chains moving, Ray's inability to get the ball into the end zone cost Toronto once Winnipeg took the lead for good late in the third quarter. He's now averaging 382.3 passing yards through four games at the helm of Marc Trestman's offense, but his 4:3 TD:INT leaves something to be desired.

July 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 27 of 41 passes for 366 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 26-25 win over the Redblacks.

The future CFL Hall of Famer continues to look rejuvenated under new head coach Marc Trestman, with Saturday's effort marking his third straight impressive performance to open the 2017 campaign. Trestman's high-powered scheme makes it difficult to pinpoint which receiver will benefit the most each week, but it was certainly veteran S.J. Green's turn Saturday, as he logged 210 of Ray's 366 yards on the night. Factoring in Saturday's production, Ray has compiled a CFL-best 1,199 yards, and he'll look to maintain his torrid pace when the Argos do battle with the Blue Bombers on the road in Week 4.

June 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 30 of 45 passes for 327 yards and a touchdown with an interception in Friday's 28-15 loss to the Lions.

While he wound up with solid numbers, Ray and the Argos had trouble finishing off their drives, settling for field goals until finally getting into the end zone in the fourth quarter. The 37-year-old has come out of the gate flying in 2017 at the helm of Marc Trestman's offense, but after playing only 12 games over the last two seasons, Ray still needs to prove he can stay on the field to reclaim a spot among the CFL's top fantasy QBs.

June 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 32 of 41 passes for 506 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 32-15 win over Hamilton. He also gained four yards on his sole rush.

Despite Ray's storied CFL career, it was difficult to see this one coming. The 37-year-old ran new head coach Marc Trestman's offense with lethal precision against one of last season's top defensive units, completing passes to eight different pass catchers, three of which went over 100 yards on the afternoon. The three-time 5,000-yard passer played as if in his prime, with his yardage total serving as a career high and coming just 18 yards short of the franchise-record 524 yards established by Tobin Rote in 1960. Considering his age and recent history, Ray's performance is highly unlikely to represent the caliber of play he can consistently deliver this season; however, given Trestman's own impressive offensive resume and how he may be able to maximize Ray's strengths, it certainly makes the veteran quarterback a much more intriguing fantasy asset than expected prior to Sunday's breakout effort.

June 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray played briefly during the Argonauts' exhibition season, throwing just three passes in two games, but he will still head into the regular season as the team's starting quarterback.

Head coach Mark Trestman announced in February that Ray would open the season as the Argonauts' starter, and nothing since then has changed. In fact, Ray's hold on the job only grew more secure when Toronto released fellow quarterback Ricky Ray in the final round of roster cuts. Ray played in just nine games last year with modest stats, but he did lead all regular quarterbacks with a 74.5 percent completion percentage.

February 28, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

According to head coach Marc Trestman, Ray will enter the 2017 season as the Argonauts unopposed starter.

Ray played only nine games in 2016 due to injuries, but still managed to pass for 2,397 yards and 15 touchdowns. He is 37 years old, however, and at some point the Argonauts will need to find his replacement. Drew Willy was tested out at some points last season, and there is movement amongst some of those close to the team to acquire Johnny Manziel. Regardless of these rumors, Ray will take the wheel as the Argonauts starter in 2017.

October 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 28 of 42 passes for 311 yards and one touchdown but was picked off twice in Friday's 31-13 loss to the Stampeders.

His return to the Argos' starting lineup didn't have a storybook ending, but Ray hadn't played in six weeks so some rust is understandable. With Toronto now out of the playoff picture, they may elect to give their final start of the season (Nov. 5 in Edmonton) to a younger QB like Logan Kilgore.

October 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Head coach Scott Milanovich announced Tuesday that Ray will start Friday's game against the Stampeders.

Fellow quarterback Drew Willy will not suit up this week while tending to a shoulder injury, which will give Ray the chance to start for the first time since Sept. 5. Ray will have his work cut out for this week facing a Stampeders defense that is first in the league in both sacks and points allowed.

October 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (chest) is in line to start Friday's game against the Stampeders, Dan Ralph of The Canadian Press reports.

Ray has not appeared in a game since suffering a punctured lung in Week 11, but he practiced with the first team Monday, making him the favorite to start in place of Drew Willy, who has already been ruled out for Week 18 with a shoulder injury.

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray, who was expected to miss the rest of the season with a punctured lung, is now considered healthy enough to play but will back up Drew Willy instead of regaining the starting QB role for the Argos, Matthew Scianitti of TSN reports.

The team also released four wide receivers later in the day, so there was plenty of surprising news coming out of Toronto on Monday. Given his initial diagnosis, don't expect Ray to see any action down the stretch for the Argos, even if Willy continues to struggle moving the ball as he did Sunday.

September 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a punctured lung, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.

This is the last thing the Argos want to deal with as they struggle through a four-game losing streak. Dan Lefevour is expected to claim the starting job beginning with a home match against the Tiger-Cats on Sunday. Ray finishes with 1,834 passing yards, and 13 touchdowns against four interceptions, proving that he can be effective even at 36 years of age.

September 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 31 of 41 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns while getting intercepted twice in Monday's 49-36 loss to the Tiger-Cats

The Argos actually led the game 36-24 late in the third quarter before everything fell apart for them and for Ray, with Kenny Shaw's 55-yard INT return for a TD in the fourth quarter just the icing on the cake. It was the veteran QB's best performance of the season in terms of attempts, completions and yards though and his 13:4 TD:INT ratio through seven games is still very good. He'll look to minimize those mistakes Sunday in a rematch at home against the Ti-Cats.

September 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (knee) completed 24 of 29 passes for 213 yards with a touchdown and interception in Wednesday's 16-13 loss to the Lions. He also gained five yards on three rushes.

The veteran was behind center for the first time since Week 5 and looked good in the process, putting together an impressive five-play, 73-yard drive to open the game that was capped off with a 21-yard touchdown strike to Kevin Elliott. Ray forged a near-flawless first half overall, connecting on 15 of 16 pass attempts for 146 yards during the first 30 minutes. His one mistake came early in the third quarter, when Solomon Elimimian picked him off deep in his own territory. The interception was actually the first for Ray since Week 1 versus the Ti-Cats, while his aforementioned touchdown gives him at least one in every game he's played in during the 2016 campaign. The former Grey Cup MVP will go for his first 300-yard game of the season when the Argos complete a quick turnaround and take on the Ti-Cats in Monday's Labour Day Classic.

August 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (knee) has been named the starter for next Wednesday's matchup with the BC Lions.

Ray hasn't taken the field since Week 5, when he sprained his MCL during a win over the Alouettes. Since the injury, the Argonauts have gone 1-2 under quarterback Logan Kilgore. This season, Ray has recorded 1,235 yards, nine touchdowns, and one interception with a 73.7 completion percentage in five games.

August 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (knee) is expected to be ready to return to action following the Argonauts' Week 10 bye, TSN's Gary Lawless reports.

Ray was not able to take the field in Week 9 despite coming off the six-game injured list, but it appears he will be able to do so when the Argonauts return to action next Wednesday. He figures to reclaim the starting quarterback role from Logan Kilgore right out of the gate.

August 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (knee) was removed from the 6-game injured list Wednesday and is on track to return against Saskatchewan on Aug. 31, the Toronto Star reports.

Ray reportedly tested his sprained right MCL in a closed practice Wednesday, which included dropping back and throwing passes to receivers. Logan Kilgore will draw at least one more start, facing the Eskimos at home this Saturday. Surprisingly, the Argos are just 1-3 at BMO field in Toronto yet undefeated in three road games.

July 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray (knee) was placed on the 6-game injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Redblacks.

Ray sustained the injury in Monday's win over the Alouettes, and it was announced shortly afterwards that he will miss the next 3-to-5 weeks. The 36-year-old quarterback was enjoying a fine season before going down, having accumulated 1,235 passing yards with nine scores and just one interception. Logan Kilgore will take over under center while Ray rehabs his injury.

July 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray will miss the next 3-to-5 weeks weeks with a sprained MCL, Gary Lawless of TSN reports.

Ray left Monday's win over the Alouettes due to the injury and will now be sidelined for the next month or so. The injury comes as a huge loss for the Argonauts, as the 36-year-old Ray has been their leader all season, passing for 1,235 yards and nine touchdowns. Expect Logan Kilgore to step into the starting quarterback role in Ray's absence.

July 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray left Monday's game against the Alouettes with a knee injury and is believed to have a sprained MCL, Chris O'Leary of the Toronto Star reports.

He was having an outstanding game before getting hurt, completing 29 of 34 passes for 235 yards and three TDs. Ray will be further examined by the Argonauts' medical staff, but if he is indeed dealing with the sprain as initially estimated, he would likely be out at least a month. Logan Kilgore took over under center after Ray's departure, and figures to take over as the Argonauts' starter if Ray is forced to miss further action.

July 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ray completed 24 of 32 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's loss to the Redblacks.

The Argos' passing game isn't the most dynamic in the league but Ray is staying productive, throwing for 1000 yards and a 6:1 TD:INT through four games. He should be in line for another solid performance when Toronto hosts Montreal in their next game July 25

Ray completed 23 of 32 passes for 283 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 25-14 victory over the Lions. He also gained a yard on his sole rush.

The prolific veteran turned in a much more typical performance in the victory, after generating a modest 186 yards last week versus the Roughriders. Ray was error-free once again, and has thrown only one interception in 90 pass attempts to date in 2016. After he and the Argos dropped his first game back from injury in the opener versus the Ti-Cats, Ray has led Toronto to two consecutive victories. He'll try to make it three straight in a Wednesday matchup against the explosive Ottawa Redblacks in Week 4.

Ray completed 13 of 22 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in Thursday's 30-17 victory over the Roughriders. He also gained 19 yards on his sole rush.

The prolific passer led the Argos to scores on his first two drives, before becoming a game manager for the remainder of the contest. Ray got the scoring started with a five-yard touchdown to slotback Andre Durie after veteran returner Larry Taylor had set up Toronto's offense inside the Roughrider five-yard line with a 59-yard punt runback. He came back with a beautiful 56-yard strike to Vidal Hazelton on a pump-and-go on the next drive, giving the Argos a 14-0 lead they'd never relinquish. The victory represented a significant turnaround for a team that looked out of sorts in a blowout loss in Week 1, but it doesn't seem as if Ray-- who's thrown for over 4,500 yards in seven of his 11 CFL campaigns-- has truly hit his stride as of yet.

Ray completed 26 of 36 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Thursday's 42-20 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

While his numbers were decent on the surface, the Argos were dominated at the line of scrimmage by the Ti-Cats' defensive line and Ray couldn't get many sustained drives going while being sacked six times. After the 36-year-old QB played in just nine games last year due to a shoulder injury, Toronto will need to keep him upright and healthy if they want to make any noise in the CFL's East Division.

Ray enters the 2016 campaign healthy after missing most of last season recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, CBC Sports reports.

Ray started the Argonauts' final two regular season games and the team's lone playoff contest last season, but he spent most of the year recovering from shoulder surgery and serving as a backup. With fellow quarterback Trevor Harris now in Ottawa, and Ray healthy, he is in position to reestablish himself as the Argonauts' top quarterback.
