No shortage of scoring opportunities for Allen Robinson

I’ve written at length about opportunity-adjusted touchdowns (OTD) in the past. If you’re new to the stat, be sure to check out the original introductions to rushing and receiving OTD. I’ve also improved my methodology in the past, and you can read the rushing, passing, and receiving articles via the provided links.

In a nutshell, the OTD metric weighs every carry/target and converts the data into one number that indicates a player’s scoring opportunity.

    Thanks Mike! This is one of my favorite reads of the week. To help me apply it further, what is the calculation that occurs to come up with the number in the % column? I understand the directional significance (above or below 100), but I think knowing the equation could be helpful. Thanks again,

      This is a factor that helps us better understand a player’s usage as it relates to his scoring opportunity. A mark of 100% is league average. The higher the number, the more the player is used near the goal line. And vice versa. Short yardage backs will often have a high number and scat backs will generally be low in the category.
