Winnipeg quarterback Zach Collaros, Blue Bombers receiver Dalton Schoen and Ottawa receiver Jaelon Acklin have been named the CFL's top performers for July.

Collaros threw for 1,061 passing yards and 11 touchdown passes with just two interceptions in four games as the two-time defending Grey Cup champion Blue Bombers improved to 8-0 with a perfect month.

Collaros, last season's outstanding player, leads the league in passing yards (1,948), is second in touchdown passes (15) and ranks third in completion percentage (70.2 per cent).

Schoen had five of his league-leading six touchdown receptions in July.

He had 19 total receptions for 367 yards and 11 second-down conversion receptions over the last four games.

Acklin amassed 443 receiving yards on 21 receptions and two touchdowns in four games, including a career-high 114 yards on Sunday as Ottawa picked up its first win of the season with a 23-12 victory at Toronto. He added 11 second-down conversion receptions.

Acklin leads the CFL in receiving yards (687) and 100-plus-yard games (four).
