The playoffs are here.  No time to mess around now.  Put in your best lineup and let the best man win.  Here are the key fantasy games on the docket. Seems that the most intriguing action is backloaded later in the day.12:00pm ETIowa at MichiganIt's Senior Day in Ann Arbor, but it appears Denard Robinson will be nothing more than a spectator in this one. Northwestern at Michigan StateThose of who've been spoiled with Venric Mark as a loophole WR have a difficuly decision to make here.  Sparty is coming off a bye, they're at home, and their defense will be ready to roll.UCF at TulsaThis game pits the two best teams in C-USA. The Tulsa defense has tightened things up over the last few weeks. Can Latavius Murray continue on his tear? He's accounted for 12 touchdowns over his last five games.Houston at MarshallRakeem Cato cooled off last week at UAB, only passing for 216 yards and 2 scores - well below his normal output.  Can he rebound against a beat up Houston squad? Fantasy managers certainly hope so.1:30pm ETWashington at ColoradoBishop Sankey could rush for 200+ in this one if the coaches let him. Can Buffalo RB/TE Christian Powell produce anything close to his stellar 132-2 rushing performance from last week?3:00pm ETUSC at UCLALee, Barkley, Woods, Hundley, Franklin... on paper, this one screams of fantasy gold. Let's hope it lives up to the hype.3:30pm ETWake Forest at Notre DameMichael Campanaro is obviously a dangerous play in South Bend. Can he produce some garbage time points? Start him at your own risk.  Sam Houston State at Texas A&MSam Houston State boasts one of the most dangerous offenses in FCS. This could be good news for Johnny Manziel owners.  The longer SHSU can hang around with the Aggies, the longer Manziel plays.  Minnesota at NebraskaT-Magic should have a field day against the Gophers. Will Rex Burkhead's possible return ruin Ameer Abdullah's fantasy value?Texas Tech at Oklahoma StateIn their last two outings, Oklahoma State has been involved in shootouts (74 and 89 total points scored). Can they make it three in a row?Duke at Georgia TechVad Lee put up 34 fantasy points last week against UNC. Can he do the same to that other school from Tobacco Road?Nevada at New MexicoCody Fajardo and Stefphon Jefferson have carried their fantasy owners for most of the year. Don't let them down now, boys.Ohio State at WisconsinBraxton Miller meets Montee Ball. Who's the fantasy king of the Big Ten?4:00pm ETUtah State at Louisiana TechHere's the best game of the day that nobody in the mainstream media will pay any attention to. Kerwynn Williams, Chuckie Keeton, Quiinton Patton, Kenneth Dixon and Colby Cameron all have the capability to put up big numbers.7:00pm ETOklahoma at West VirginiaGeno Smith & company finally got back on track last week fantasy-wise against Oklahoma State.  Can they keep it rolling against a far better Sooner defense?8:00pm ETKansas State at BaylorIf Collin Klein can stay healthy, he should manhandle a terrible Baylor defense. The question is whether Nick Florence and Terrance Williams can do any damage against a pretty solid KSU D.Stanford at OregonAnother great game with huge national title implications. Kenjon Barner was very quiet against Cal last week. Too quiet. The Cardinal defense is the best the Ducks will see all year.10:00pm ETArizona at UtahWord is that Matt Scott could return to action in this one. How well he can play will directly affect WR Austin Hill, but is his return a bad thing for the scorching hot Ka'Deem Carey?
