FantasyPros Football Podcast: Waiver Pickups & Buy/Sell Targets: Week 8

Oct 24, 2017

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

Week 8 is upon us and with six teams on bye, it’s time to start planning out who to pick up off the waiver wire to either fill this week’s holes or to stash away for the future. We’ve got Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) of the Footballguys joining us to give his thoughts on approaching the wire at this point in the season (11:57). It’s a fun episode as we hit on a variety of topics that are surely on your mind like what to think of Ezekiel Elliott’s looming suspension (13:23), Latavius Murray’s outlook (26:32), JuJu’s expanding role (34:50), deep player stashes (40:27), players to drop (49:03), ROS rankings (56:36) and more!
