Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 11 (Ep. 432)

We come to you after another great week of football to break down the top waiver pickups heading into Week 11.

Howard (37:09) and Dallas Goedert (38:45) and would it be wise to sell Mark Andrews (58:09)? Sponsors: ExpressVPN - Want to watch every single NFL game this season, no matter where you live?

With Week 1 upon us, we delve into the weekly rankings and discuss over and undervalued quarterbacks (23:35), running backs (28:06) and wide receivers (34:13). Game scripts are a topic of our Week 1 discussion, and Bobby asks Justin which players will benefit the most from their team's initial matchup (39:31), and who will suffer from their team's matchup in Week 1 (46:14). We finish by asking Justin the one matchup he's targeting for immense fantasy production in the first week of the season (49:54).
