Gerrid Doaks

25-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Doaks is looking at an uphill climb for a roster spot. The 2021 undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati has yet to play a game in the NFL but has remained employed as a practice teamer -- first by Miami who drafted him in the seventh round then by Houston in 2022. The Texans are locked in at the top two running back spots with Dameon Pierce and Devin Singletary, leaving Doaks to compete with Mike Boone and Dare Ogunbowale for the third back. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old has bounced around Houston's practice squad most of the last two seasons but has yet to appear in a regular-season game during his three years in the league. Doaks has a career 44-179-2 rushing line during preseason action with Miami and Houston.

Ryan Pohle breaks down the final preseason contest of the summer, and he sets his eyes on Jameis Winston with Derek Carr resting for the finale.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Doaks only saw action on the practice squad as a rookie in 2021, and the Dolphins have since added multiple options atop the backfield depth chart. Heading into Year 2, Doaks is competing for an opportunity to stick with the team in any capacity.
Doaks is a rare seventh-round rookie with a real opportunity for touches. He boasts equivalent investment capital to the backs ahead of him on the depth chart, like Myles Gaskin (2019 seventh-round pick), Salvon Ahmed (2020 UDFA) and Malcolm Brown (veteran signing). Perhaps more importantly, Miami has proven willing to ride the hot hand when it comes to backfield carry allotment. Doaks boasts a three-down skillset, but he also missed time due to injury in each of his three collegiate seasons.
