We’re a quarter of the way through the regular season — even further through the fantasy season — and impactful waiver wire pickups will continue to get rarer. But there’s still a few players widely available who can help your fantasy team over the next few weeks. Let’s take a look at this week’s waiver wire targets:Nyheim Hines Youth B.J. Hill Jersey , RB, Indianapolis ColtsRostered - Yahoo: 15% | ESPN: 15.5%In two of four games this season, Hines has seen at least nine targets. Against Houston, Hines got 11 targets, which tied for the team lead with Chester Rogers as T.Y. Hilton missed time and it resulted in two receiving touchdowns. Hines played a nice 69 percent with Marlon Mack out and Mack was limited on Monday. Even if Hines isn’t playing 70 percent of future snaps, he might have done enough to earn a role as the receiving back and maybe, more importantly, Andrew Luck’s trust. Hines’s role could be important going forward on a team that’s likely to pass often while trailing.Taywan Taylor, WR, Tennessee TitansRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 3.9%With a healthy Marcus Mariota and Rishard Matthews out of the rotation, Taywan Taylor took over as Tennessee’s No. 2 receiver. Taylor played 63 percent of the snaps for the Titans, the second most among their wide receivers, and his nine targets tied with Dion Lewis for second on the team. His average depth of target (12.1) was just behind Corey Davis against the Eagles. Taylor has the talent to be a consistent contributor in the offense and now it appears he also has the opportunity.T.J. Yeldon Youth Saquon Barkley Jersey , RB, Jacksonville JaguarsRostered - Yahoo: 50% | ESPN: 46.8%This is probably a no-brainer and 50 percent ownership is as high as I’ll go for a player in this column, but it’s important to note Yeldon is still available in half of fantasy football leagues — more than half if you play on ESPN. Leonard Fournette will be out indefinitely, so Yeldon will take the load as Jacksonville’s top back (even though Corey Grant should get more playing time). Against the Jets, Yeldon got 62 percent of the snaps and had 18 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown. He also added three receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown. Without Fournette in the lineup, Yeldon played 58 percent of the snaps against the New England Patriots and 67 percent against Tennessee. The Jacksonville offense is apparently going to go how Blake Bortles goes — a risky week-to-week proposition — but for however long Fournette is out, Yeldon will get a lot of work. Taylor Gabriel, WR, Chicago BearsRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 6.6%Gabriel finally had his breakout game in Week 4, along with the rest of the Bears offense. But Gabriel has at least seven targets in each of the past three games. Last week, he had 10 targets with an aDOT of 18.1, the seventh-highest depth of the week. In Week 4, Taylor got his seven targets at an aDOT of 9.6 and took that for 104 yards and two touchdowns. His role has grown each week , especially since the start of the season when he was only taking screens and “touch pass” pseudo-handoffs in the backfield. Against the Buccaneers, Gabriel played 79 percent of the offensive snaps, which trailed only Allen Robinson at wide receiver.Chicago will be on a bye Week 5, so you’ll have to stash him for a week before he can be used, but he can turn into a high upside play starting in a week.Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh SteelersRostered - Yahoo: 43% | ESPN: 31.3%In the Steelers offense, Vance McDonald isn’t going to lead the team in targets, but there are enough opportunity and enough chances at big plays for McDonald to be a solid play at tight end. McDonald has received five targets in each of the three games he’s played. This week turned into 62 yards and last week it was 112 yards and a touchdown. McDonald, now healthy, out-snapped Jesse James 62 percent to 44 percent against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.He’ll continue to get decent looks and maybe more if the Steelers’ defense remains a unit that struggles to stop opposing offenses.Getting to know new Giants’ offensive lineman Spencer Pulley Spencer Pulley started 16 games at center for the Los Angeles Chargers a season ago. With the Chargers signing Mike Pouncey to play that spot this season, Pulley found himself on the outside looking last week when cuts were made by NFL teams to reach the 53-man roster lit.Pulley was one of six players awarded to the Giants, who also added two more free-agent signings in a sudden and dramatic roster makeover. I caught up with the 25-year-old , entering his third NFL season, Wednesday in the Giants’ locker room. Here is a quick Q&A with the Giants’ new backup center/guard.Ed: Are you a little bit surprised to be here? You were a 16-game starter last year.Pulley: Right. I had no idea a couple days ago I’d be on the other side of the country. That’s the way the business works, the business side of it. I’m very happy to be here. I was a little surprised at how fast everything happened, but you’ve gotta be ready to roll with it. That’s just how it goes.Ed: Did you feel like you played well last year?Pulley: I thought I played pretty well. I had some injury stuff toward the end of the year that I think, not to make excuses, but the last half of the year I probably didn’t play as well as I think I can play. I don’t know if that had any part of the whole decision, but that’s what I would say.Ed: You didn’t see being released coming?Pulley: They signed [Mike] Pouncey, so I always knew it was a possibility. But as a player I just went through it not thinking about it, I’m just going to play football.”Ed: I don’t know if you’re aware of what’s happened here but there’s eight new players here -- 15 percent of the roster since Saturday. That’s kinda crazy.Pulley: Yeah. it is crazy.Ed: Is there something that’s typical of the NFL in that, or that tells you how the NFL is in terms of the business side?Pulley: That’s the way the NFL goes. People are always in and out. I can’t say anything about the team that was here, but from what I’ve heard I think Coach is trying to establish a new culture or mindset around here. I don’t know if that’s part of it. It’s my second day.”Ed: Have they told you anything about what the opportunity is going to be here for you?Pulley: Not a whole lot. They’ve told me I can play center and guard, to work in there and get used to the playbook and just kinda work in and see where it goes from there.Ed: You have a preference? Are you more comfortable at one or the other, or does it not matter?Pulley: This time last year I would have said center , obviously, because that’s where I was playing. But I’ve been able to play a lot of guard the last few months, so I feel pretty comfortable there.”Ed: Give us a scouting report on yourself?Pulley: I’m a guy that’s going to come in to work. I like to think I’m pretty smart. I like to know the offense backward and forward. The way the game works and the Xs and Os is probably my favorite part. That’s what I’ve been doing the past couple days is trying to get in the playbook, get around these guys, figure everything out. I like to think I’m somewhat athletic sometimes.”Ed: How hard is it to come and when you get to Sunday feel like you’ll be ready to contribute?Pulley: It’s a challenge for sure. I was in here most of the day yesterday just trying to get around everybody, trying to get in the playbook and learn. There’s always similarities from where you come from, but it’s obviously different. It’s a challenge, but I’m excited about it. I’m all-in with the Giants. I’m pumped to get going. As soon as I can get out there I’d love to.”Ed: Did you know any of the guys before you got here?Pulley: No, not really 鈥?I played at Vanderbilt with Pat Shurmur’s son for one year.”Bonus stuffPulley was 45th among 50 qualifying centers in pass-blocking efficiency last season with a 96.7 mark, per Pro Football Focus. He allowed 38 total pressures, but just one sack. His 52.9 run-blocking grade ranked 42nd among qualifying centers, and his 52.8 pass-blocking grade was 43rd. He was also right about his first half vs. second half last season. Five of his six highest-graded games came in the season’s first eight weeks.
