CFB Waiver Wire: Players to Pick Up Week 3

CFB Waiver Wire: Players to Pick Up Week 3

This article is part of our CFB Waiver Wire series.

If it wasn't clear already, last week made it known this is going to be a strange season. Just look at the performances of the Big 12 teams. Kansas State and Iowa State both got upset by non-Power Five teams. Things are all just a bit off, but the games are happening and interesting performances are happening on the field. And if teams like Louisiana can pull off upsets it may not be a bad year for picking up Group of Five players off the waiver wire even when they are matched up with a "bigger" team.

Slate Background: There are some conference games, but we aren't in the full-on conference matchups part of the schedule yet. That means a fair amount of FCS teams on the schedule. Not showing up yet? That would be the SEC, who aren't kicking things off just yet.

Editor's note: Chris is pinch-hitting for Nick Grays this week. Grays will be back next week.

Gerrid Doaks, RB, Cincinnati : Doaks and the Bearcats are making their season debut against Austin Peay this week. This will be Doaks' chance to ease himself into being the lead back for Cincy. Last year, he was backing up Mike Warren, a workhorse who rushed 261 times for 1,265 yards and 14 touchdowns. Doaks got 100 carries, but he averaged 5.3 yards per rushing attempt. An FCS team is a way for Doaks to show up out of the gate and hit the ground running.
