CFB Waiver Wire: Players to Pick Up Week 8

This article is part of our CFB Waiver Wire series.

Throughout the college football season, I'll pick two guys from every active conference who either caught my eye in the previous week or who have a favorable match-up in the near future. As always, I'll get to any questions or comments you have in the comments section below.

UTSA WR Joshua Cephus (22.3 points)
Stanford TE Benjamin Yurosek (22.0 points)
Tulsa WR Josh Johnson (21.4 points)
Mississippi RB Snoop Conner (19.9 points)
Virginia TE Jelani Woods (16.8 points)
