Toxic Differential is a statistic in football used to measure a team on their ability in creating and preventing both turnovers and explosive plays. Toxic Differential is calculated by adding together a teams turnover differential (takeaways - giveaways) and its big play differential (big plays for - big plays against). Toxic differential is a combination of three different differential statistics:
1) Turnover differential, which is the difference between the total number of takeaways (opponent turnovers) less the total number of giveaways (team turnovers).
2) Passing Big Play differential, which is the difference between the total number of passing plays of 25+ yards by the team less the total number of passing plays of 25+ yards the team gave up.
3) Rushing Big Play differential, which is the difference between the total number of rushing plays of 10+ yards by the team less the total number of rushing plays of 10+ yards the team gave up.
Injured | Adrian Peterson | RB | Minnesota VikingsPeterson has a torn miniscus And should be out at least one week, if not more.
Injured | Doug Martin | RB | Tampa Bay BucanneersMartin said he suffered a "slight tweak" of his hamstring in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals. He is getting an MRI today, which suggests the team is worried it could be something more. Best case scenario, Martin is definitely questionable for this week against the Rams.
Is there any wide receiver worth drafting on the Eagles roster? The Eagles wide receiver corps this season is far from exciting. The poor showing in their pre-season game highlighted the lack of wideout playmakers on their team. Nelson Agholor was a 2015 1st round pick and has thus far been a disappointment. Rueben Randle came over from the Giants and he has not made much impact either.
Ezekiel Elliot was a mild surprise as the Cowboys picked him with the 4th pick in the draft. Many thought that the Cowboy's front office would take Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey. Now that Elliot will be wearing the star on his helmet, the question becomes where will he be on the depth chart and where should you draft him for your fantasy league?
