Taric usually has a significant smaller longest killing spree than his counter does. On average, Taric takes less damage than Fiddlesticks. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champ with more HP has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when engaged or poked.

Taric often gets a similar number of minion kills than Fiddlesticks. Champions that do not amass a lot of minion kills typically do not need much CS to be effective.
