I can send them to you, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Not too sure how I can use this data to help look forward. Would I want to analyze each individual player, and extrapolate from there? Or just look at groups of players and see which are the standouts?
If you include age, it should be an independent (X) variable.

What categories are counted in your fantasy league?

I tend to think this is sort of like building a laser device to measure shoe size... much more complicated than it needs to be. Probably you should focus on situations where you expect players to outperform their past seasons, due to being at peak age, getting increased playing time, or having better linemates than in the past. Remember that goal scorers tend to peak earlier (many in their early 20s and most by their mid 20s) than playmakers.
