Quarterback Darian Durant was named the CFL's offensive player of the week after guiding the unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders to their fourth straight win.

Durant had 347 yards passing and four TDs in Saskatchewan's lopsided 37-0 home win over Hamilton on Sunday. The victory left the Roughriders (4-0) as the CFL's only unbeaten squad.

Riders linebacker Renauld Williams was named the top defensive player after recording two sacks and three tackles against Hamilton. Williams, a former Ticat, leads the Riders in sacks with five.
