Every week, well mine the waiver wire for lesser-owned assets to help your squad, whether you favor dynasty or the redraft format -- and well also toss in some tips for DFS players out there. Adidas Nmd R1 Primeknit . Categorized by position, the players are ranked in descending order by ownership percentage in ESPN leagues.Well also include some former go-to fantasy assets who may be overvalued -- in the short- or long-term -- for one reason or another.Busting into November, a couple of under-appreciated aging wingers are turning heads in top-line roles, two young defensemen are demanding greater respect from fantasy players, and the New York Islanders may soon have a new No. 1 netminder.ForwardsBrandon Dubinsky, C, Columbus Blue Jackets Ownership percentage: 38.7You superstitious types will appreciate Dubinskys latest effort to shrug off his early-season slump, per the Columbus Dispatch:Dubinsky, who has no goals and one assist in the first seven games, arrived at practice cleanly shaven in hopes of changing his luck. I needed a fresh look, a fresh start, he said of shaving his beard. Gotta put a couple in the back of the net. Dubinsky scored a nice goal in practice Monday, leading assistant coach Brad Shaw to skate over to the bench and say, With the beard, I dont think that goes in.Grooming act aside, the initiative tells us Dubinsky himself expects to bust out of this dark period at any moment, and there isnt an injury or other fundamental issue at play.Radim Vrbata, RW, Arizona Coyotes Ownership percentage: 12.8Vrbata has served as an underrated fantasy asset since the start of his NHL career in 2001. Now, after a two-season stop in Vancouver, hes back in the desert to add to his Coyotes resume of 232 points (including 110 goals) in 352 regular-season games. As it is, we adore the odds of the 35-year-old nailing this task while skating on a top scoring line with imposing center Martin Hanzal and young firecracker Max Domi. The veteran winger already has four goals in his past four games.Matt Moulson, LW, Buffalo Sabres Ownership percentage: 8.4Casually cobbling together this particular feature on the fly, wed like you to consider Moulson our Waiver Watch asset of the week. If the experienced wingers four goals and one assist -- all earned with the man advantage -- dont charm you, his spot on a No. 1 line with Ryan OReilly and Kyle Okposo should. Also, injured top-six skaters Jack Eichel and Evander Kane are expected to sit out a while yet, securing Moulson in his plum position for the time being.Colton Sceviour, C/LW, Florida Panthers Ownership percentage: 4.4If nothing else, Sundays hat trick (plus an assist and five shots) highlighted Sceviours ripe role on a scoring line and power play with center Vincent Trocheck and winger Reilly Smith. The former member of the Stars might be worth a fantasy whirl in the next little while, but dont feel bad dropping him again when the hot streak ends.Scott Wilson, C/LW, Pittsburgh Penguins Ownership percentage: 3.1As long as he sticks on a scoring line with center Sidney Crosby, Wilson remains a reasonably valuable fantasy commodity in all but the tightest leagues. The 24-year-old forward earned assists on two of Crosbys post-concussion four goals in three games, including one primary helper.Michael Grabner, LW/RW, New York Rangers Ownership percentage: 2.3Continuing to settle in with his new club, the speedster won over hockey-loving hearts in the Big Apple with Sundays hat trick against the visiting Lightning. As outlined by my colleague Sean Allen this week, Grabner could be in for a rebound goal-scoring campaign with the Rangers. Consider the 29-year-old a deep-league fantasy dark horse with substantial upside.Nikita Soshnikov, RW, Toronto Maple Leafs Ownership percentage: 0.1Called up from the AHLs Marlies, the 23-year-old former KHLer is set to make his NHL season debut against the Oilers Tuesday. Soshnikov has the potential to exponentially improve on last seasons five points in 11 games, especially if he lands on a line with center Nazem Kadri.DefendersNoah Hanifin, Carolina Hurricanes Ownership percentage: 17.4A must-own blue-line asset in dynasty leagues, the 19-year-old 5th overall draft pick from 2015 is already projecting to easily outpace last seasons 22 points. Competing on the Hurricanes No. 1 power-play unit hasnt hurt. Half of Hanifins six assists on the season have counted with the extra skater.Damon Severson, New Jersey Devils Ownership percentage: 16.5All too quietly, Severson has totaled six points in his last six games, including an even-strength goal and four power-play assists. Unless the Devils acquire a defenseman from elsewhere, we dont anticipate the 22-year-old losing his position on the top special teams unit anytime soon.GoaltendersThomas Greiss, New York Islanders Ownership percentage: 14.8According to media reports, staring Isles goalie Jaroslav Halak is on the trade block. Barring another top-flight goalie coming back to Brooklyn in return, that would leave Greiss as the Islanders go-to No. 1. Sporting a respectable 2.28 goals-against average and .925 save percentage through four starts, Greiss is coming off his best performance to date, Sundays 33-save, 5-1 victory against the Maple Leafs.Al Montoya, Montreal Canadiens Ownership percentage: 18.1If were to believe Habs coach Michel Therrien, puck-stopping sovereign Carey Price is slated to start 60 games this season. That leaves a somewhat substantial serving of leftover contests for the Canadiens veteran standby, including a probable appearance in one of two approaching weekend back-to-backs. With three wins in four games (while generating a 1.47 goals-against average and .955 save percentage), Montoya has been superb this season. Give him a look in DFS action when its his turn, as well.Lowered expectationsMax Pacioretty, LW, Montreal Canadiens Ownership percentage: 98.0The Canadiens current top line includes Alexander Radulov, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. Frankly, they look dynamite together. Youll notice were not mentioning Pacioretty at all here, and thats a problem for those who own him in fantasy.Pekka Rinne, G, Nashville Predators Ownership percentage: 93.9Consider benching Nashvilles No. 1 until he gets his own act together and/or the rest of the Predators start scoring. To paint the picture in vivid primaries, Sophomore Viktor Arvidsson is currently leading the squad with four goals and six total points in eight contests. Fortunately, while languishing 24rd in the league with 2.38 goals per game, this club is too skilled to struggle for much longer. And Rinne is no chump himself. A temporary rest on your own fantasy pine should suffice.Zach Parise, LW, Minnesota Wild Ownership percentage: 91.7Listed as week-to-week with a foot injury, Parise is prematurely projected to miss at least a handful of games. While intriguing rookie Joel Eriksson Ek has been bumped into the Wilds top six, Mikael Granlund (ownership percentage: 7.6) -- on a line with center Mikko Koivu and winger Jason Pominville -- remains our undervalued favorite in Minnesota for now.Andrew Ladd, LW, New York Islanders Ownership percentage: 68.2Tumbling off of John Tavares line, Ladd has all of one assist to show for his first season in Brooklyn. For now, teen rookie Anthony Beauvillier seems to be one of coach Jack Capuanos preferred options alongside the clubs captain, while second-line center Brock Nelson (ownership percentage: 22.3) stands out with a team-leading nine points.Francois Beauchemin, D, Colorado Avalanche Ownership percentage: 38.4Last seasons leader in blocked shots isnt doing much of that -- or anything else of fantasy interest -- in 2016-17. With only five shots through seven games, Beauchemin hasnt contributed at all to the score sheet since Colorados opener (two assists). Buy Adidas Nmd r1 Online . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Adidas Nmd r1 Primeknit Australia .

"Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones will miss the rest of the season because of a shoulder injury suffered in Sundays win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.Jones, who was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time in 2015, was ruled out for the year Wednesday after receiving a second opinion on the injury. Its a big blow for a defense ranked 26th in the league.Nobody can replace the talent, teammate Michael Thomas said.Thomas will likely move into Jones spot in the starting lineup, with Walt Aikens also assuming a more prominent role.Well go through this week of practice and kind of figure out what our best personnel package will be back there, coach Adam Gase said. Adidas Nmd r1 Primeknit Shoes. We have a lot of moving pieces as far as what we like do with defensive packages.Jones hasnt missed a game because of injury in the past five seasons. He led the Dolphins and all NFL defensive backs last year with 106 solo tackles, and has 31 this season.His absence further depletes a secondary already without rookie starting cornerback Xavien Howard because of a knee injury.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
