NFL Offensive ROY Favorites

Kenny Pickett (+500)

When a rookie quarterback has even a half-decent season, they are typically favored to win Rookie of the Year, so it's no surprise to see Kenny Pickett as the early favorite. The former Pitt Panther was the lone quarterback drafted in the first round and the new Steelers passer has a clear path to starting as a rookie, with Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph his competition. 

Treylon Burks (+750)

Expectations are high enough when you enter the league as a first round pick but former Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks will have even bigger shoes to fill. The Titans shocked many on draft night, trading away star wideout A.J. Brown and replacing him with Burks moments after. With a Brown-sized hole to fill in Tennessee's offense, Burks won't lack opportunities as a rookie. 

Drake London (+800)

The former Trojan receiver was, surprisingly, the first receiver off the board as the Falcons added the big-bodied pass-catcher to a skill position group led by Kyle Pitts. With Calvin Ridley suspended for the 2022 season, London will have a sizable target share — what that leads to, however, in a passing game operated by Marcus Mariota, remains to be seen. 

NFL Offensive ROY betting trends

• Of the last 18 winners of the NFL OROY Award, 15 were drafted in the first round.

• While quarterback is an extremely difficult position to excel at as a rookie, nine of the last 18 OROY winners played the position, including four QBs that were selected first overall in the draft.

• Running backs have won four of the last eight NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Awards. However, in recent years when top rookie RBs have gone head-to-head against top QBs for OROY honors, they've often come out on the losing end. Ezekiel Elliot led the NFL in rushing in 2016 but lost the OROY to his teammate Dak Prescott, while in 2019, Kyler Murray took home the hardware over Josh Jacobs, who rushed for 1150 yards and 4.8 YPA in 13 games. 

• No offensive lineman has ever won the award despite recent linemen like Joe Thomas, Matt Kalil, Jack Conklin, Ryan Ramcyzk and Quenton Nelson all making the Pro Bowl in their first year.
