17.11.2018, 04:13
As the season gets deeper — even though we’re only through three weeks — it’s tougher to find capable impact players on the waiver wire. But there’s still a few who could really make a difference for the rest of the season — and there’s always a chance for a surprise performance to pop up later in the season. So with that said Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey (http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-ray-ray-armstrong-jersey) , here’s a few waiver wire targets as we head into Week 4.Calvin Ridley, WR, Atlanta FalconsRostered - Yahoo: 44% | ESPN: 40.8%Hopefully you got on the Ridley train before Week 3, but a lot of people didn’t He’s still available in more than half of fantasy leagues on both Yahoo and ESPN. The three touchdown game Ridley just had was great and while that’s not something he’s going to do weekly, there’s some staying power with the presence in the Falcons offense.Ridley is tied for second on the team in targets (15), but what he’s done with those is so much better. He has the edge on Sanu in receptions (11 to 10), yards (210 to 73), and average depth of target (14 to 6.4). Sanu appears to have a handle on the snap count advantage, but Ridley looks like he’s turning into the true No. 2 option in the passing game. As a receiver across from Julio Jones on a team that might be in some shootouts, Ridley is a must own if you’re in a league where he’s still available.Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati BengalsRostered - Yahoo: 17% | ESPN: 23.7%The No. 2 option on the Bengals’ offense isn’t as sexy, but Tyler Boyd has been incredibly productive through three weeks. Boyd is second on the team in targets (21) and leads the team in receiving yards (249). Boyd isn’t exactly a deep threat, but he does lead the team in aDOT (12.0). Right now Boyd is WR16 by PPR scoring and he’s barely owned in fantasy. The Bengals offense has been clicking since Bill Lazor took over as offensive coordinator and the Bengals have a pretty favorable schedule of secondaries over the next couple weeks with the likes of Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Kansas City Janoris Jenkins Jersey (http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-janoris-jenkins-jersey) , and Tampa Bay among the teams faced before Cincinnati’s bye.Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay PackersRostered - Yahoo: 34% | ESPN: 34.2%It’s rare that a player on so many waiver wire add columns after Week 1 is still available after Week 3, but that’s where we are with Geronimo Allison. Allison hasn’t had fewer than 64 receiving yards in Green Bay’s first three games and even when he only got a season-low four targets this past week, he turned it into 76 yards and a touchdown.Allison is only the Packers’ third receiver, but Green Bay is using 11 personnel (three wide receivers) on nearly 80 percent of their offensive snaps this season — Allison has been on the field for 75.2 percent of Green Bay’s offensive snaps. He’s the deep threat for an Aaron Rodgers offense, which is never a bad place to invest.Buck Allen, RB, Baltimore RavensRostered - Yahoo: 27% | ESPN: 39.3%Skip ahead if you’re someone who invested in Alex Collins this season (*raises hand*). For some reason, the Ravens are fascinated by giving the ball to Allen near the goal line this season. Only Carlos Hyde, Todd Gurley, and Adrian Peterson have more carries inside the 5-yard line, which has resulted in two touchdowns.Having Allen on your roster is banking on the Ravens continuing to get near the end zone and use Allen in this role, but there’s nothing to suggest that role is going to disappear anytime soon, even if there’s still a better back on the roster.Mark Andrews, TE Kerry Wynn Jersey (http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-kerry-wynn-jersey) , Baltimore RavensRostered - Yahoo: 1% | ESPN: 1.1%If you need a streamer at tight end or are in a super deep league, Andrews might not be a bad place to look.The Ravens will play the Steelers this week, a team that has been killed by the tight end so far this season. Andrews’s 9.9 intended air yards is ninth among tight ends with at least eight targets. Andrews is also second on the team in yards per reception (13.4). He only played 38 percent of the snaps this past week when he caught two passes for 59 yards, but he’s clearly the pass catching tight end on the roster and his role could grow.Pat Shurmur: “I feel like we’re on the right path” The preseason is over for the New York Giants. They won two games and lost two games. Whatever! Odell Beckham Jr. got his big contract. Hooray!! They got through with no major injuries, with only Darian Thompson (hamstring) and Olivier Vernon (ankle) of real concern. Phew!!! Now, the Giants get down to brass tacks.They will have to set a 53-man roster on Saturday. GM Dave Gettleman promised Thursday that the Giants would “keep the 53 best” players and then look to the waiver wire to try and upgrade wherever they can.Having completed his first preseason as Giants coach, one filled with a high number of tough, padded practices and one in which he was praised for his efforts to build relationships with players, how does Pat Shurmur feel about the Giants’ readiness for the 2018 season, which begins Sept. 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars?“I don’t know about readiness. I feel like we’re on the right path with regard to team building, I feel like we’ve got enough information,” Shurmur said. “We played all the players through the preseason, so we’re not going to be guessing as to whether a guy can do it or not. We’re in a position now to pick that initial 53-man roster. We’re in a position to keep moving forward, and I feel good about the work we’ve done to this point.”Here are more takeaways from Shurmur’s post-game press conference.On Donte Deayon’s two-interception night“He did a really nice job. And, on the flip side, I thought he did a really good job when the ball was in the air http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-curtis-riley-jersey , and he caught it. It was the first interception along the sideline and then the second interception he undercut the route and did a nice job. He also had some tackles. I would say he helped himself tonight. He had a good performance.”On the play of quarterback Kyle Lauletta“I think he fell victim to some drops that would’ve made things look a little better. That one scramble where I think he hit (Jerell) Adams, that keeps a drive alive. He was aggressive with his throws down the field, which we wanted to see. You can see he has plenty of arm strength, which is good, and I thought he was pretty poised throughout the game.”On the helmet rule (The Giants were penalized three times)“I thought we had adjusted well, and then all the sudden a bunch of them creeped up on us. We’ll just go back and look at each one and just see why. When we went through this helmet thing, it was said that these were the certain plays we want out of our game and those are pretty obvious. Some of the plays now, we’re getting flags that if those aren’t part of the game, I don’t know if we have a game. So, we’ve just got to see. We all want what’s right and what’s best for the players. I feel like player safety is on the front burner. We want to make sure it’s a safe, physical, gritty game and play the way the rule is written, and I think it’s just a matter of us continuing to coach it the right way and then when it gets officiated, just officiate it consistently. That’s really what we want.”
