2020 NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year Candidates

Brandon Ayuik +4000

If Ayuik stays healthy, he could become the 49ers’ version of Atlanta’s Julio Jones. That’s what Kyle Shanahan hopes, at least. 

CeeDee Lamb +2000

Lamb is a player. Dak Prescott will love this guy in Big D. But, the Boys already have Michael Gallup, Amari Cooper, and Zeke Elliott. So, CeeDee will have to fight for scraps at the target table.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire +400

Andy Reid loves using his running backs. This season, he’s got a running back. Edwards-Helaire could get up to 25 to 30 touches per. The +400 odds make him an overlay to win Rookie of the Year.  

D’Andre Swift +1600

Swift could start in Detroit. The problem? Matt Patricia figures to rotate Swift with Kerryon Johnson. 

Henry Ruggs III +1800

Ruggs III has ridiculous speed. He also has some of the best hands of any wide receiver in this draft class. Raiders coach Jon Gruden will use Ruggs III all over the field. He’s a faster version of Julien Edelman, which makes him a major contender for the ROY. 

J.K. Dobbins +2500

Dobbins will back up starter Mark Ingram in Baltimore. He shouldn’t get enough touches to win Rookie of the Year. But, who knows? If Ingram gets hurt early in the season, J.K. becomes a contender. 

Jalen Hurts +4500

The odds are massive because Hurts won’t start at quarterback. Before writing off Jalen’s chances, though, realize that he could be a more electrifying version of the Saints’ Taysom Hill. Hill gets enough touches each game to go in the middle rounds in fantasy football drafts. That makes Hurts an interesting underdog Rookie of the Year possibility. 

Jerry Jeudy +1500

Jeudy is the best route runner in the 2020 class. He should excel in Denver. But to excel, quarterback Drew Lock must be better.

Joe Burrow +250

If the offensive line protects Joe Burrow, he should win the ROY. Joe’s got some weapons with A.J. Green at wide receiver and Joe Mixon in the backfield.

Jonathan Taylor +900

+900 are overlay odds on JT. Marlon Mack is listed as the Colts’ starter, but Mack has an injury-filled history. Taylor is a monster who dominated Big Ten defenses. Indianapolis has one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. So, if JT gets the start, watch out!

Justin Herbert +5000

Herbert won’t start for the Bolts. Even if he does, the odds are correct because it’s hard to see him having much success. Why even put him on the list? Justin was the sixth pick in the NFL Draft. He deserves some mentioning. 

Tua Tagovailoa +900

Tua won’t start the season under center, which makes him the biggest underlay among the name players. How are we sure the Dolphins won’t start Tua ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick? The offensive line remains terrible. Any time an NFL team must start Ereck Flowers, the line is horrible. Tua has a history of getting hurt. Why not wait to rebuild the offensive line before starting your franchise quarterback?
