With a quarter of the 2013 NFL season in the books, we're beginning to get a very good idea of which players will pace the league in touchdowns at season's end. To achieve this, we'll be taking our weekly look at our alternative to red zone data: opportunity-adjusted touchdowns (oTD).

If you're new to the stat, be sure to check out our introduction to rushing and receiving oTD. The oTD metric weighs every carry/target and converts the data into one number that indicates a player's scoring opportunity.

Four weeks in, oTD tells us to buy on Le'Veon Bell and Alshon Jeffery.
