FantasyPros Football Podcast: Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 6 + Jay Ajayi Injury Fallout

Oct 8, 2018

With Jay Ajayi now out for the season, who is the next man up in Philadelphia?

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.

Michael Moore from Pro Football Focus comes on board with us as we offer our thoughts on the latest injury news, valuable waiver adds, and trade targets. Which Eagles RB will benefit the most from Jay Ajayi’s ACL tear (3:51) and is Ronald Jones (14:42 & 15:53) in a prime spot to grab Tampa Bay’s starting tailback job? Can fantasy owners depend on Keke Coutee (30:38) as a WR3 for the rest of the season, is it time to consider Joe Flacco (48:28) a dependable streamer, and should you still view Doug Baldwin (58:14) as a buy-low target after his one-yard outing on Sunday?
