So you're in the college fantasy football playoffs, are ya? Congratulations there, chief. Now the real fun begins. Before we begin our laser-focus on Week 12, here's what we learned from last week's action...1. Denard Robinson owners cannot be pleased by the play of Devin Gardner.  Gardner has looking pretty sharp under center for the Wolverines, which makes you wonder if Shoelace will get his job back this season.  And even if he does start a game or two down the stretch, will he split time with Gardner?2. UCF RB Latavius Murray has now put up 20 or more fantasy points in his last four games.  Can he continue this pace in crunch time?  Tulsa is up next.  The Golden Hurricane defense completely shut down Houston last week.  Could be interesting.3. I'm ready for some weeknight MAC-tion! Last year we had ridiculous November MAC scores of 63-60 and 66-63. Those types of explosions haven't happened... yet. Are Toledo-NIU or Ohio-Ball State up for a little scorefest this Wednesday?4. Thought Florida's defense would dominate UL-Lafayette, huh?  Think again.  If it wasn't for their miraculous last second blocked FG for touchdown, they would've been a supreme disappointment. Perturbed fantasy owners are demanding a better showing this week against lowly Jacksonville State.5. James Sims is the best fantasy RB since Jake Sharp. No matter how bad the matchup - and believe me, K.U. has plenty of bad matchups - Sims gets the job done.6. Does Kent State have the best 1-2 RB punch in the country? Dri Archer (1,043-12 rushing, 387-4 receiving) and Trayion Durham (1,059-13 rushing, 140-0 receiving) are wreaking some serious havoc on the MAC.7. In Arizona's 56-31 win over Colorado, lost in Ka'Deem Carey's monster rushing performance was Buff "tight end" Christian Powell rumbling 32 times for 137 yards and 2 scores.  Powell has been woefully inconsistent this year, but when he's on, he's providing outstanding value as a loophole TE. Washington and Utah are up next for CU.8. What's up with Silas Redd? He watched last week's 38-17 win over Arizona State from the sidelines in uniform as Curtis McNeal stole the show with a 31-163-2 rushing statline.  No reason was given for his playing time shutout.  Redd (or should we say Lane Kiffin's handling of Redd) cannot be trusted this week with the playoffs on the line.9. Johnny Football is Johnny Fantasy in our world. Mr. Manziel continues to amaze, even in the toughest of venues.  27 fantasy points in Tuscaloosa?  Mighty impressive.  Sam Houston State is up next.  Yikes.10. It took two months, but Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk has finally found his way onto the fantasy radar the last two weeks with 28 and 29 fantasy points.  Can he be trusted against No. 1 Kansas State this week?11. Where have you gone, Case Keenum? Houston was only able to muster up 262 total yards against Tulsa.  No Charles Sims, no Case Keenum, no Patrick Edwards, no Tyron Carrier, no dice.
