Spencer signed a with the Redblacks on Tuesday, Tim Baines of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Spencer caught 71 passes for 706 yards and three touchdowns as a member of the Toronto Argonauts in 2016. He should provide a significant boost for the Redblacks' passing game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Spencer caught five passes for 64 yards in Friday's loss to the Stampeders.

He hasn't seen a lot of targets in recent games, but this was Spencer's highest yardage total since he hauled in 132 yards back in Week 11 against the Ti-Cats. The second-year slotback already has career highs in catches and yards, but he'll look to pad those totals a little further in the Argos' final regular season game, Nov. 5 in Edmonton.

Spencer totaled only 32 yards but did score a touchdown on four catches in Monday's 48-20 loss to the Stamps.

The McNeese State product's 10-yard score came when the game was well out of reach in the fourth quarter and was his first since getting into the end zone in Week 13 versus the Blue Bombers. Spencer has been able to notch a solid number of receptions in every game this season-- his four grabs Monday were the lowest figure he's amassed in that category-- yet the yardage totals have generally been unspectacular. The 24-year-old started off his season with two stellar 100-yard efforts in his first four games, but has tallied no more than 63 yards receiving in the seven other contests he's been active for.

Spencer caught five passes for a team-high 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Alouettes.

He now has 54 catches for 559 yards and two TDs in just eight games, and with the Argos releasing four other wide receivers Monday, Spencer figures to be Drew Willy's top target for the remainder of the season.

Spencer tallied six receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 46-29 loss to the Blue Bombers. He added three yards on one punt return.

The 24-year-old has been an integral component of the Argos offense since coming on board in Week 8. Spencer has hauled in no less than five receptions in any contest, and has 20 receptions over the last three weeks alone. His touchdown Saturday was his first since Week 8, when Spencer exploded for 11 receptions for 146 yards against this same Blue Bombers squad. He's now totaled a career-high 42 receptions and is only 32 yards short of his high-water mark of 502 yards from 2015.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Spencer caught eight passes for a team-high 132 yards in Monday's loss to the Tiger-Cats.

He's now piled up 30 catches for 351 yards in just four weeks of action, but the TD was the first of the year for Spencer. With he and quarterback Ricky Ray now seemingly back at 100 percent and showing excellent chemistry, Spencer could be headed for a very impressive finish to his second CFL campaign.

Spencer gained 36 yards on five receptions, 10 yards on his only rush and 40 yards on four punt returns in Wednesday's 16-13 loss to the Lions.

The McNeese State product put together a near-identical receiving line to the one generated against the Eskimos in Week 9, while also making some solid contributions in the punt-return game. Spencer flashed an impressive ceiling in his Week 8 debut with 11 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown, but hasn't come close to matching that type of production in the subsequent pair of contests. However, with his upside and special-teams work, he may make for a rewarding tournament flyer in coming weeks with Ricky Ray back under center for the Argos.

Spencer caught a game-high 11 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in Friday's loss to the Blue Bombers.

After missing the first six games of the season due to a back injury, Spencer seemed intent on making up for lost time Friday. The second-year receiver had fairly modest numbers as a rookie, but he should see plenty of touches in the short term with both Tori Gurley (lower body) and Vidal Hazelton (ankle) currently sidelined.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Spencer began the season on injured reserve due to a back injury, but he'll get the start at receiver Saturday. The Argonauts are a bit thin at wide receiver, so it's unlikely Spencer will be limited.

Spencer is likely to be sidelined several weeks with a lower back injury, the Toronto Sun reports.

Spencer will begin the season on injured reserve.
