To determine tables growth rates you need to keep a record of table sizes periodically. I store table sizes on a daily basis to draw growth reports.

You could try looking at your transaction log backups, and see what time of day they were very large. Then try to figure out what was running at that time.

I keep 30 days of server side trace files, so I can look there to see what was runnng at a particular time.
