Football Outsiders: 2016 Slot vs Wide: RBs and TEs

Not sure how often you check out Football Outsiders, but I though this was interesting.  It's analyzing receptions for RBs out of the backfield, in the slot, and lined up out wide, and shows how versatile some backs are (Freeman was almost 50/50 passes vs. backfield, with only a few plays in the slot) compared to others (Ajayi got 100% of his touches out of the backfield).  Great food for thought on how RBs (and TE's later in the article) are used and may be used differently this season.
