With the (fully virtual) 2020 NFL Draft officially in the books, it’s time to shift our focus to the upcoming NFL season — which may, or may not, kick off as planned in early September.

Now that we know which players landed with which teams, we can take a more in-depth look at scheme fits, depth charts, and projections to help make informed decisions on the futures betting markets for awards such as the 2020 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

The obvious favorite to take home Offensive Rookie of the Year honors is No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow. That said, there are a handful of running backs and wide receivers, and a couple of other quarterbacks who could prove to be serious contenders.

Here are the betting odds to win 2020 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Odds courtesy of BetOnline as of May 4, 2020.

Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts (+900)

Taylor fell into the Colts’ laps in the second round (No. 41 overall), despite his impressive Combine performance and wildly productive college career at Wisconsin. He will have to share touches with Marlon Mack, who is coming off a 1,000-yard season in 2019, but if he is able to establish himself as Indy’s lead back, Taylor could end up going north of 1,200 rushing yards in his first professional season (the Colts have the premier offensive line in the league).

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs (+500)

When it comes to matching up an offensive scheme with an individual player’s skillset, Edwards-Helaire may have landed in the perfect spot. The former LSU running back will likely have a significant role from day one, and as we all know, the Chiefs have arguably the most explosive offense in the NFL.

Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals (+250)

Burrow will almost surely be the Bengals’ Week 1 starter, so there will undoubtedly be growing pains at times in 2020 for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Nonetheless, the Bengals did overhaul their roster this offseason, and Burrow’s projected group of pass-catching targets (A.J. Green, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, Alex Erikson, C.J. Uzomah, Gio Bernard, and Joe Mixon) is a surprisingly talented group.

If Burrow fills up the stat sheet and leads the Bengals to seven or eight wins, he will be nearly impossible to beat here.

Others:

  • Tua Tagovailoa (+1000)
  • Cam Akers (+1200)
  • D’Andre Swift (+1200)
  • Ceedee Lamb (+1400)
  • J.K. Dobbins (+1600)
  • Jerry Jeudy (+1600)
  • Justin Herbert (+1600)
  • Henry Ruggs III (+1800)
