Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Duke Williams was named the CFL's top performer of the week on Tuesday, with linebackers Darnell Sankey of the Calgary Stampeders and Henoc Muamba of the Toronto Argonauts also recognized.

Williams had his first game with more than 100 receiving yards since returning to the CFL as Saskatchewan claimed a 29-24 home victory over the Edmonton Elks on Saturday.

He had eight receptions for 146 yards, marking the 14th 100-plus yard game of his career.

Early in the second quarter, Cody Fajardo found Williams for the receiver’s first touchdown reception of the season to give the Roughriders a 13-7 lead.

Sankey matched a career-high with 12 tackles in Calgary’s 33-23 win over the B.C. Lions on Friday.

The victory clinched a playoff berth for the Stampeders.

Muamba set his season-high of 11 tackles as the Argonauts defeated the visiting Tiger-Cats 31-12 on Friday, securing the East Division title for Toronto.
