Beyond the Stats Week 10

Each week I uncover some interesting stats, tidbits and information that you may not know. 

DID YOU KNOW?

Oh what a start! - Kareem Hunt is 2nd in running back PPR scoring despite not scoring a touchdown since Week 3. At the end of Week three, Hunt had 40.1 more points than the 5th ranked running back. 

More on Hunt - three of his four 100-yard rushing games came on the road. 

She'll be coming 'round the mountain - Ravens running back Alex Collins has the most rushing yards (521) without a rushing touchdown. Next on the list is D'Onta Foreman (244 yards). 

Interesting Stat - Cam Newton (341) has more rushing yards than Marshawn Lynch (323). Dalvin Cook (354) has more than both despite playing only 4 games. 

How about that? The Top 3 players in receptions are a wide receiver, a running back and a tight end. (Jarvis Landry 56 recs, Christian McCaffrey 54 recs and Travis Kelce 51 recs). 

Because I'm a stats geek and I find this stuff interesting for no reason at all - Six of the nine leaders in yards per catch have their last name ending in "N" (Marquise Goodwin, Ted Ginn Jr, J.J. Nelson, Travis Benjamin, Robby Anderson and DeSean Jackson. While we're at it, the answer above this one all ends in "eee"  - I'm a mess. 

The "Watson Effect" - Will Fuller V has 7 touchdowns on 15 catches. Let's see how many touchdowns he'll have in his next 15 catches. 

Rookie Trivia - Who's the only rookie to have 6 receptions, 10 rushing yards, 50 receiving yards and a touchdown in the same game this year? The answer - Alvin Kamara (and he did it twice).

Another question - and the answer is not Carson Wentz - Which quarterback, no older than a 5th year veteran, has the most 300 yard passing games this season? Here's a hint - he's not playing this week. Another hint - he likes crab legs. (Jameis Winston - 4 times).
