Losing and causing fumbles is somewhat skill based, some players just lose more fumbles and some players just force more fumbles than others. Recovering fumbles is entirely luck based, the way the ball bounces around and the number of arms and hands flailing around makes it a coin toss.

On average most teams come up with about 50% of the fumbles during a season, both their own and the ones they force - we have been really bad at recovering so far this season, while it will eventually even out, it would be the gamblers fallacy to assume that because we are behind the curve we are due to recover a majority of fumbles the rest of the season.
