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.

We’re back after another week of Sunday NFL action to give you the top waiver pickups heading into Week 3, and we’ve got one of the fantasy community’s most loved personalities, Scott Fish, along for the ride with us today. Is Frank Gore (9:02) seriously a top waiver target as a spot-start option and who is the better pickup between Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson (23:26)? Would it be wise to trade for JuJu Smith-Schuster (39:45) now that Ben Roethlisberger is out for the season and is Will Dissly the top TE add over Chris Herndon (42:54)?
