Statistical fun to help with lineup choices

I'm a big statistics guy, not only studying trends that can help fantasy owners but being interested in how three quarterbacks are on pace to break the NFL record for season passing yards (Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees) and how of the three running backs with consecutive-game rushing touchdown streaks of six this season, two were top-5 overall picks (Arian Foster, Adrian Peterson), while the other (Marshawn Lynch) was an eighth-rounder.
Anyway, on this fine, chilly Friday, I figured I'd delve into the cool stack of ESPN Stats & Information goodies for this weekend and share my thoughts on the fantasy options you might be on the fence about using.
