Checking in on the Big 12...Fantasy Style

As I was watching some games today I realized that there has been a lot of talk about the Big 12 as a whole but I haven't seen a lot on the individual players this year.  Outside of quarterbacks, I'm not sure I've seen anything about other players in the conference.  A lot of that is probably a selection bias about the things I read and follow or does anyone else feel the same? Either way, I was bored and had some time to kill this afternoon, So I went to cfbstats.com and took individual stats for the quarterbacks, wide receivers, running backs, kickers, and team defenses so I could run their numbers as a fantasy league would.  I don't know if there is any real value to doing this other than seeing what teams are scoring and how they're doing it but I figured I'd share the results. 

Note: Numbers do not include any games played this week.

Quarterbacks

Scoring: mainly used the set up from the RCT Fantasy League.  Quarterbacks received 4 points per touchdown, one point per 20 passing yards, and -2 for interceptions.  Skipped the other stuff because I wasn't going through all the game logs.

Defense

Scoring: 2 pts per forced fumble, interception, and sack.  As you can see, Kansas doesn't do any of those things on defense.

Outside of Kansas being towards the bottom of these categories, any thoughts to the numbers?  Only thing I can come up with is wondering how many people saw Patterson as the leading receiver on this team halfway through the season?
