in the season http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/will-hernandez-jersey , 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 http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-goodson-jersey , 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.Saquon Barkley has a mild hamstring strain, Pat Shurmur: “We’ll be smart with him” [Updated] Let’s be honest. All anyone cares about in relation to Monday’s New York Giants practice is that running back Saquon Barkley did not suffer a serious injury catching a pass from Kyle Lauletta.Head coach Pat Shurmur didn’t think Barkley, who briefly had his leg wrapped before practice ended, had suffered a serious injury.“We’ll see. I think he’s alright, but we’ll find out,” Shurmur said.Second Update (5 p.m.) - Pat Shurmur informed the media that the Giants medical staff confirmed that Barkley has a “mild hamstring strain”. He added that the team would be smart with his recovery. “Saquon has a mild strain, and we’ll be smart with him as we move along here http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-aldrick-rosas-jersey ,” Shurmur said.Update: Dianna Russini of ESPN is reporting that Barkley has a "tweaked hamstring", and the team isn't worried. Here are more takeaways from Shurmur’s post-practice press conference on Monday.Joint practicesThe Giants will practice in Detroit vs. the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. “I’m just looking forward to our guys to compete against new faces, new schemes. It kind of freshens things up,” Shurmur said. “I’ve said this before, but Matt (Patricia) and I have organized these practices before, so we have kind of a set of guidelines that we want our guys to follow, but just looking forward to playing against new faces in a new scheme.”First-team reps for Davis Webb and Kyle LaulettaFor the second straight practice, the Giants lessened the workload on starting quarterback Eli Manning. This time, both Davis Webb and Kyle Lauletta got first-team reps in Manning’s place.“We kind of backed off on Eli (Manning) just a little bit. He’s taken a few snaps in his lifetime, so that’s all that was,” Shurmur said. “There’s a double-edged sword to that. By doing that, it allowed us to get those guys bumped up and get more reps, and that’s what we were trying to do.”Young running backs impressing There may not be room on the roster for running backs Jalen Simmons and Robert Martin http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-janoris-jenkins-jersey , but both are doing their best to make cutting them difficult.“I think they’re good, physical runners, and that’s where it starts for them. They know how to run the football and we saw the other night that given a little room, they can make yards, so I think that’s where it starts for them,” Shurmur said. “They’re both getting much better at pass protection, and I think they’re both doing a much better job of catching the football. So, their total game is getting better, but really for those guys, it starts as being runners.”
