Should Zac Stacy be in your lineup?
The 2012 college fantasy season is winding down but most importantly, Week 12 is all about the playoffs.
Keenan Reynolds, QB-Navy vs Texas St
Reynolds has been red-hot over the past three weeks and faces a Texas State defense allowing 211.7 rushing yards per game.
Jordan Parker, RB-MTSUat South Alabama
After carrying the ball 32 times for 149 yards two weeks ago against Western Kentucky, Parker has proven that he can be a workhorse back. This week, the freshman running back faces a South Alabama defense giving up over 150 rushing yards per game.
Storm Woods, RB-Oregon St vs Cal
After rushing for 94 yards on 15 carries last week against the nation’s No. 1 run defense, Woods is primed to reach the century mark for the first time since Week 5.
Tre Mason, RB-Auburn vs Alabama A&M
Mason is nothing more than a one-week value play, but a matchup against Alabama A&M makes him worth a Week 12 start.
Justin Brown, WR-Oklahoma at West Virginia
We’re expecting Brown to have his biggest game of the season against the nation’s worst pass defense. West Virginia is allowing over 340 yards per game in the air and has allowed 27 touchdown passes.
JD McKissic, WR-Arkansas St at Troy
McKissic will attempt to find the end zone for the first time since week seven against a defense that has given up 22 touchdown passes and is allowing 255.6 passing yards per game.
Jamison Crowder, WR-Duke at Georgia Tech
Expect Crowder to get a lot of looks this Saturday against a defense giving up 256.3 passing yards per game.
David Fales, QB-San Jose St vs BYU
Fales has had a nice five-game stretch, but the competition gets much tougher this week when he takes on the Cougars’ 10th-ranked pass defense.
Jawan Jamison, RB-Rutgers at Cincinnati
On Monday, Jamison was 50-50 to play with an ankle injury. Even if the junior running back can give it a go on Saturday, he’ll be facing a Cincinnati defense that has only allowed 130 rushing yards per game and seven rushing touchdowns through nine games.
Marcus Sales, WR-Syracuse at Missouri
Sales has only caught six passes over the past two games, so we are not going to risk our playoff lives with a cold receiver on the road against a solid SEC defense.
Zac Stacy, RB-Vanderbiltvs Tennessee
Stacy is probable to play this week against Tennessee, but he has only totaled 18 carries over the past three games. Without the guarantee of a 20-plus carry game, fantasy owners would be wise to sit him in the semi-finals.
Tyler Bray, QB-Tennessee at Vanderbilt
Bray has thrown 13 touchdown passes in the past three games, but this week he faces a Vanderbilt defense that has only given up five touchdown passes all season.
