There are five players who need no introduction to the Heisman discussion: Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, last year's Heisman runner-up; Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, another 2015 Heisman finalist; LSU running back Leonard Fournette, the Heisman front-runner for two-thirds of the season; Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, whose dazzling play propelled the Sooners to the College Football Playoff last season; and Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, arguably the nation's most under-appreciated player last fall.

But the Heisman rarely goes exactly as forecast. Others can enter the radar and stay there.

We listed the 10 players who could play their way into the Heisman Trophy mix earlier this week, and now we highlight the games where these players can make their moves and make the nation take notice.
