The Wages of Wins, by Berri, Schmidt & Brook

Scroll down to content

Glibly called “Freakonomics meets ESPN,” this book is neither as fun to read nor as provocative as Freakonomics (or, for that matter, ESPN). But they bring up a lot of interesting things, like how scoring (especially in the NBA) is a horrible indicator of value to a team, how quarterbacks in the NFL are woefully inconsistent from season to season, and how Stanford basketball is the most wondrous and underrated sport to behold.

Okay, not that last bit. But worth reading for fantasy nerds like me.
