FantasyPros Football Podcast: Waiver Wire (Week 4)
Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@) 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.
Jake Ciely (@allinkid) of RotoExperts joins us to break down Week 3 of the NFL season and how fantasy owners should react moving forward. We begin by looking at which 3-0 teams are most surprising to us (2:17) and which teams we think can be Super Bowl contenders in the NFC (5:59) before moving on to injuries and stand out performances from Week 3. We start by covering Rashad Jennings and the Giants backfield (12:28), Marvin Jones’ hot start (13:42), Jimmy Graham’s respectable production (16:08), Russell Wilson’s sprained MCL (16:41), Kelvin Benjamin’s scoreless week (18:57), Ryan Matthews’ injury concerns and how it impacts the Eagles tailbacks (21:06), the mess in the Dolphins backfield (24:00), Christine Michael’s performance during Thomas Rawls’ absence (24:53), Jeremy Langford’s injury and Jordan Howard’s value moving forward (29:20) and Terrelle Pryor’s presence as a multi-threat player (32:40). We continue by looking at high upside waiver wire pickups and discuss Dwayne Washington (35:52) and DeAndre Washington (37:22). We have a quick Adrian Peterson (39:28) digression where we discuss his injury timetable before diving back into the waiver wire and examine which wide receiver you should pick up between Devante Adams, Cole Beasley and Jamison Crowder (42:36), which running back between Cameron Artis-Payne, Kenneth Dixon and Chris Thompson (49:06), which tight end between Zach Miller, Jack Doyle and Cameron Brate (48:07), and we finish by looking at the top streaming defenses for Week 4 (51:26).
