FiveThirtyEight: Barkley Isn't the Hero Your Team Needs

At FiveThirtyEight, we looked at the conundrum of drafting Penn State running back Saquon Barkley in the top five, especially if you're the Browns or Giants. While workhorse backs have been romanticized for decades of NFL history, the league has shifted away from them in favor of more passing and a by-committee approach to the position. We also have not seen first-round backs outperform those taken in later rounds. The rushing DVOA since 2002 is the second lowest in the first round, and there's essentially no difference in yards per carry among the seven rounds. Running backs truly can be found anywhere, and Super Bowl-winning teams this century have also proven that.

The Taxing World of NFL Player Finances

Fascinating article from The MMQB about the complicated world of tax filing for NFL players. They owe state taxes based on where they play and practice, not where they live, which means filing a number of different state returns each year. It also means that playing teams in tax-free states can dramatically change a player's net income, to the point where it makes sense to specifically spend the bye week in a tax-free state.
