There is reason for optimism in Riderville heading into the 2018 campaign.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders doubled their win total from 2016 to 2017 and following a busy off-season that featured a number of high-profile transactions, expectations have been raised.
The top storyline heading into the season revolves around the starting quarterback position. Canadian Brandon Bridge performed admirably when called upon last year but the team traded for Zach Collaros in the hopes he can become the next franchise pivot. Having two capable QBs is not so much a controversy as it is a good problem to have and if the oft-injured Collaros can regain his form he can re-emerge as one of the league's top stars.
With division rivals Edmonton and Calgary boasting the likes of Mike Reilly and Bo Levi Mitchell, respectively, it will be tough to compete in the stacked West unless the Riders get solid production and leadership from their guy.
