It’s not going to be easy to find impact waiver wire
pickups this late in the season Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , but there may be a few available in some leagues. For that reason, this week’s pickups are rostered at a much higher rate than usual, but still available in more than half of Yahoo leagues. At this point in the season, trades might be your best bet at improving your roster, but keep an eye out because a lot of leagues could have their trade deadlines set for this week.Here are this week’s waiver wire pickups:Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles ChargersRostered - Yahoo: 45 percent | ESPN: 25 percentWilliams hasn’t gotten more than four targets in the past four games, but he’s getting them where and when it matters. He’s tied with Keenan Allen for second on the team with six targets in the red zone. He got his touchdown on Sunday from 30 yards out. Despite seeing fewer than half of Keenan Allen’s overall targets this season — 66 to 32 — he’s right behind him in the percentage of team air yards — 28.4 percent to 26.7 percent. He’s going to be an important part in one of the league’s best offenses throughout the second half of the season.Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Green Bay PackersRostered - Yahoo: 39 percent | ESPN: 20.7 percentGeronimo Allison is out for what is expected to be an extended period of time, which will give MVS a bigger role in the offense, something he probably deserved regardless. Over the past four games Valdes-Scantling has 27 targets and 317 yards with two touchdowns. He’s already become one of Aaron Rodgers’s most trusted targets already and he’s the team’s deep threat with 12.5 intended air yards, the highest on the team.Ito Smith, RB, Atlanta FalconsRostered - Yahoo: 44 percent | ESPN: 31.6 percentSmith hasn’t gotten a huge share of Atlanta’s overall rushing attempts over the past few weeks — he’s had more than 10 rushing attempts just twice this season — but when he is getting carries, they come with a good chance to score. Smith leads the Falcons with 15 carries inside the red zone. Tevin Coleman only has eight. Coleman does lead the team with eight red zone targets (Smith has three) but when they go to the ground, it’s typically Smith’s turn. All four of his touchdowns have come in the red zone and the Falcons are an offense that ends up there quite often — with their defense they almost have to. Duke Johnson, RB, Cleveland BrownsRostered - Yahoo: 48 percent | ESPN: 49.5 percentIt finally happened. Duke Johnson was treated as a real, legitimate option in the Cleveland offense. Johnson had nine receptions on nine targets for 78 yards and two touchdowns, all of which led the team. Johnson always had that ability, but was never used by Hue Jackson and Todd Haley — Johnson didn’t have more than eight touches in a single game since Week 1. If Johnson continues to be a focal point of the Cleveland offense going forward — he’s against an Atlanta defense that gives up the most receptions to running backs this week — he’ll be a difference maker down the stretch. Happy Saturday Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , and welcome to Week 10 of the 2018 college football season! The New York Giants are off this week, so we don’t have to look forward to an NFL game day with any trepidation. However, the reason for that trepidation, the 1-7 Giants’ play this year, gives us plenty of reason to pay attention to college football in advance of the 2019 NFL Draft. I have already put out my first mock draft of the 2019 draft season, and it will be the last one until after the underclassmen declare.Until then we have plenty of good games, and players to watch. So, let’s get to today’s slate of games!(6) Georgia at (11) KentuckyCBS - 3:30 p.m. We’ve mentioned Georgia before, and that’s because they have a whole mess of talented players. Quarterback Jake Fromm is probably the most interesting, especially if the Giants wind up punting their quarterback decision to the 2020 draft. Beyond Fromm, Georgia has a pair of defensive backs in CB Deandre Baker and S J.R. Reed who should interest a team that is starved for them. The Giants probably can’t afford to invest a premium draft pick in a receiver, but junior Riley Ridley could intrigue if he both declares and slips in the draft.On the Kentucky side of things, the first player to watch is linebacker/EDGE Josh Allen. Like the similarly named rookie quarterback, Allen is big, long, and athletic. He isn’t the most devastating edge rusher in the class, but he has greater fluidity in space than many pass rushers have. The Giants might also be interested in CB Derrick Baity. Baity has the length and ability in press coverage the Giants need for their defensive scheme, but he isn’t the most physical player, nor is he as ‘twitchy’ as you would like to see from a corner.Players to watchGeorgiaJake Fromm (QB)Riley Ridley (WR)Terry Godwin (WR)Deandre Baker (CB)J.R.

The future of the quarterback position is up in the air for the Giants, and Duke’s Daniel Jones could well be high on their radar. They have, after all, had a fair amount success with quarterbacks coached by David Cutcliffe in college. Jones has prototypical size and arm strength Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , athleticism, as well as generally solid accuracy and placement. He is also improving with regards to the finer points of the position, such as movement in the pocket, processing speed, and reading defenses before the snap.Of course, there’s also the Miami Hurricanes. Despite not taking the expected step after their exciting 2017 campaign, they still have talent to interest scouts — particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Considering their ongoing issues at safety, Jaquan Johnson should be particularly interesting. Likewise, cornerback Michael Jackson (Odell Beckham Jr. might lobby for him to be drafted based on his name alone) should interest a Giants’ defense in need of big, long, athletic press corners. EDGE Joe Jackson has impressive upside as a long, lean, athletic edge defender, but he needs some development in the finer aspects of playing his position. On the offensive side of the ball, the Giants might also keep an eye on left tackle Tyree St. Lewis.

As you would expect from both these teams, this game is going to be stacked with future NFL players. This game could use a post all its own to take a look at every prospect in the detail he deserves. Instead I’m going to make a quick rundown of the top players who should interest the Giants this year. (Obviously, you should be watching QB Tua Tagovailoa for the same reasons as Jake Fromm in the Georgia game, but like Fromm, he won’t be draft eligible until 2020 at the earliest.)Players to watch *all of themAlabamaQuinnen Williams (DT)Jonah Williams (OT)Raekwon Davis (DL)Mack Wilson (LB)Deionte Thompson (S)LSUGreedy Williams (CB)Devin White (ILB)Rashard Lawrence (DT)Garrett Brumfield (OG)
