Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. Our weekly waiver wire show is hosted by Dan Harris (@danharris80) and Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL). We’ll be interviewing featured experts who will offer insight to help your squads.

The fantasy semifinals are upon us! We’re joined by Sigmund Bloom of Footballguys.com to break down the week’s top waiver pickups. Is a soft Dallas defense enough of a reason for fantasy managers to trust Jeff Wilson (8:03) even though he’s stuck in a timeshare with Raheem Mostert? Has James Washington (26:32) surpassed Chase Claypool (30:16) in the pecking order, why is Jalen Hurts (36:59) worth snatching off waivers even if you have better options, and is the Washington DST (47:25) actually a sneaky good option against Seattle? The trio ends the episode with a round of Drop or Keep (49:44) and we examine whether it’s time to cut Michael Pittman (51:07), the Bills’ RBs (52:40), and Tyler Lockett (55:49) among many others.
