Opportunity-adjusted fantasy points (OFP) strips away player talent and efficiency and focuses solely on opportunity.

FORP -- fantasy points over replacement player -- is the difference between a player's actual fantasy point total (FF Pts) and his OFP (or expected total).

Tight end adjustments are made as follows:

Rushing attempts: No change

Rushing yardage: Rush attempts multiplied by a rusher's expected yardage based on in-box defenders

Rushing touchdowns: Rushing OTD

Targets: No change

Receptions: Targets multiplied by a receiver's expected catch rate based on depth of target and location

Receiving yardage: Targets multiplied by a receiver's expected yardage based on depth of target and location

Receiving touchdowns: Receiving OTD

Two-point conversions: OTD multiplied by the league average two-point rate

Fumbles lost: Touches multiplied by the league average rate

Return touchdowns: Excluded due to extreme rareness and randomness
