Waiver wire players to target in Week 4

Following Weeks 1 and 2, the waiver wire was plentiful with a number of quality adds to explore in your fantasy football league. Exiting Week 3, however, there doesn’t seem to be the same quantity of talent available. Top options are harder to come by but there are still several players fantasy managers should be targeting to help bolster their roster.

Here are the players rostered in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues or less I recommend targeting on the wire this week.

WR Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings (32% rostered on Yahoo)

Through the first two weeks of the NFL season, WR Olabisi Johnson was operating ahead of Jefferson on the Vikings depth chart. Johnson had out-snapped Jefferson 75-65 through two games. In Week 3, it was Jefferson who the Vikings utilized as their second wide receiver and the results were fantastic.

Lining up both in the slot and outside, Jefferson

Chicago violence reduction plan ‘Our City, Our Safety’ announced by city to target crime over 3-year period

CHICAGO (WLS) — The city of Chicago announced a violence reduction plan Tuesday that it said will work to provide public safety and economic investment over the next three years.

“Our City, Our Safety” is Chicago’s “first-ever comprehensive violence reduction plan,” the city said in a press release. It will focus on areas of the city where crime is most prevalent to empower and heal people.

But this is not about throwing more police officers at the problem.

“This effort starts by tackling the issues at the root of violence, such as systemic racism, disinvestment and poverty,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a statement.

“The focus is on safety,” said Norman Kerr, City of Chicago’s Office of Violence Reduction. “Increasing safety, and that’s something that sure, police, their role is to do that, but it takes more than police. It takes community-based organization, street outreach, everybody has to play a

Though a popular business strategy for new startups today is to sell direct-to-consumer through their own websites, the practice often serves as a springboard for other retail opportunities, not an outright boycott. Direct-to-consumer selling hasn’t replaced brick-and-mortar stores; rather, it has helped redefine how to create brand experiences and nurture loyal customer followings. 

In a similar fashion, many online startups eventually find their way into popular retail stores that you’ve been shopping at for years, whether for a limited run or a long-term residency — Leesa mattresses and Burrow at West Elm, or MVMT watches and Lively lingerie at Nordstrom, for example. It’s just another way for these startups to get their products in front of more eyes, plus it’s undeniably convenient to shop all your favorites at one site and enjoy free

Ibraheem Basir launched his business, A Dozen Cousins, to meld his joy for food with his passion for health and sustainability. The company makes ready-to-eat beans in pouches that are laced with the flavors of the southern U.S. and Latin America. Basir comes from a large family, and when his daughter was born, she became the “dozenth cousin,” hence the company’s name.

Just two years into his journey, Basir is launching into Target on the West Coast today. In celebration of the launch, he goes deep on why he loves beans, how to break into retail, and his advice for aspiring food entrepreneurs.  

Why did you start a Dozen Cousins?

Tencent’s Gaming Business Could Be Trump’s Next Target

Last month, the Trump administration announced it would ban Tencent‘s (OTC:TCEH.Y) messaging app WeChat in the U.S. However, the effort to enforce that ban beginning last week was halted by a preliminary injunction in a California district court.

The judge ruled that the ban raised concerns about the First Amendment rights of WeChat’s users, the U.S. government’s limits on controlling businesses, and the harm it could do to Chinese users in America. The injunction will allow a new lawsuit against President Donald Trump, filed by the U.S. WeChat Users Alliance (which isn’t affiliated with Tencent), to proceed.

The Trump administration’s moves against WeChat wouldn’t have significantly affected Tencent, since only a small percentage of the app’s users are located in the U.S. However, the Trump administration is now increasing its scrutiny of Tencent’s gaming investments in the U.S. — which could matter a lot more than its WeChat users.

BlackRock Wins Regulatory Approval to Start a Mutual-Fund Business in China; Target Price $630

BlackRock, the world’s largest investment management firm, received an approval to set up a wholly-owned mutual fund unit in the world’s second-largest economy, making it the one of the first global asset management firm to win regulatory approval from the China Securities Regulatory Commission.

BlackRock got the green light late this month to start a wholly-owned subsidiary in Shanghai, the China Securities Regulatory Commission said on Friday.

The approval would extend the investment management firm’s spectra in the Chinese asset management market, where it already operates as a mutual fund venture with Bank of China and is in the process of setting up a management venture with China Construction Bank and Temasek, Reuters reported.

Last month, BlackRock reported a 20% surge in profit in Q2, largely driven by a boost in fixed income and continued momentum in cash management.

BlackRock shares closed 1.02% higher at $601 on Friday, the stock
