Fantasy football: NFL expected touchdown (xTD) leaders for 2023

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

What is xTD?

xTD stands for expected 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 xTD 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.
