The MOST important stat when drafting your Fantasy Football team

I consider myself a somewhat analytical person. I feel like this is an important quality when coming up with the correct choice for a tough decision.

When drafting a fantasy football team, it is absolutely crucial to know which players will touch the ball the most. When a player either "touches" (running backs) or "looks"(receivers) at the ball the most, the higher the chance they will pile up yards and hopefully for your sake, score touchdowns. Below is a graph I stole from yahoo fantasy sports, it projects these stats using many smart people calculations.

Enjoy...

Touches is defined as the number of times a running back carried or caught the football.
Looks is defined as the number of times a player was the intended target of a pass.
