We’re baaaaack!  Wedding obligations this past weekend kept me on the shelf, but Pat Cotter and I are back in business and ready to help you and your fantasy team!  First, let’s take a look back on this week’s waiver wire.  We begin the segment with our most intriguing RB option, Marlon Mack.  What should your expectations be for Mack and the Colts’ backfield rest of season (2:36)?  We get off on a little tangent talking about Taylor Gabriel (12:00) and Jordan Howard (14:50).  Back on track with the waiver wire.  Number two in line is Ito Smith (16:56).  With Devonta Freeman likely lost for the fantasy season, what kind of role will Smith have?  Last but not least, our third running back is Peyton Barber (21:40).  Can the Bucs’ running game be more efficient moving forward and can Barber build off last week’s performance?  Finally, let’s talk Broncos vs. Cardinals (28:05)!  I have 3 stats of the game that will help determine some key start/sits for this game.  Listen in to find out!
