The 2013 NFL season is on pace to be the pass-happiest season in NFL history. In other words, the pass ratio (60.1 percent) is set to break last year's mark (57.65 percent). Using DVOA, we found the correlation with wins for passing and rushing efficiency along with some data on whether or not you need a good running game to succeed with play-action passing.

This week's best fantasy matchups include just about everyone on the Denver Broncos as the Eagles have no hope of slowing down the juggernaut. Matt Ryan's projected matchup is tough, but should we trust New England's defense on the road given the competition they have faced so far?

DeMarco Murray had a big game by traditional statistics on Sunday, but just like his big game against the Rams in 2011, it says more about his skill than it does the overall profile of the Dallas run game.

Why can't Aaron Rodgers seem to lead his team to a comeback in the fourth quarter? There's certainly a lot of regression to the mean on fourth-quarter comebacks, but a 5-24 record is pretty significant.

Matthew Stafford may not beat good teams, but in the fantasy world the Washington defense is a mouth-watering matchup. This also should be the week for Frank Gore to get back on track, but it could be a tough one for Adrian Peterson.
