Maybe you've been riding Drew Brees or Peyton Manning's golden arm to fantasy dominance this year, and one names keeps popping in your head: Billy Volek. For those new to fantasy football, Volek was the Titans backup quarterback who burst onto the scene in 2004 with back-to-back 400 yard passing games during the fantasy playoffs, turning wide receiver Drew Bennett into a star in the process. The lesson? Matchups matter in the fantasy playoffs, especially if your studs are resting because their teams have clinched playoff spots (this applies to you Colts and Saints owners).â†µ
