Is Doug Martin’s backup the top waiver wire pickup of the week?

Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypro) and produced by JP Gale (@GoJPG). Throughout the NFL season, we’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will offer insight to help your squads.

John Halpin (@jhalpin37) of Fox Sports joins us to run through waiver wire targets and recap all of the action in the NFL. We begin with the slough of injuries and discuss Adrian Peterson (2:09), Arian Foster (4:53), Doug Martin (6:05), Jonathan Stewart (8:18), Rashad Jennings (11:20), Thomas Rawls (13:23), Ameer Abdullah (16:02), Danny Woodhead (17:37), Jamaal Charles, and Rob Gronkowski (19:44). We look ahead to some backup quarterbacks like Jacoby Brissett (20:59) and Cody Kessler (23:02) who could impact their team’s offense and defensive matchups while the starters are out. We get some breaking news about Adrian Peterson’s injury and offer analysis on what we think about him and the Vikings running backs going forward (27:50). Moving on, John gives us his top running backs (30:52) and wide receivers (32:00) on the waiver wire worth picking up this week, and then we look at tight ends (38:08) and quarterbacks (38:55) worth streaming in Week 3.
