What is OTD?

OTD stands for opportunity-adjusted touchdowns. It is a statistic that weighs every carry/target and converts the data into one number that indicates a player's scoring opportunity. For example, if a player has an OTD of 3.0, it means that a statistically league average player who saw the same number of carries/targets in the same area of the field would have scored three touchdowns.

Diff = Difference between the player's total OTD and actual TD total
Ru OTD = Rushing OTD
