2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds & Prop Predictions

NFL Football – OROTY Prop Bets

What a crop of offensive talent coming into the NFL this year. We have strong 2015 NFL offensive rookie of the year candidates at all three of the major offensive positions.

NFL Handicapping Insight

Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota are both top contenders, but Melvin Gordon is the favorite to win the award. We also have two WR’s following up these three in the market – those two WR’s are Amari Cooper and Kevin White.

Odell Beckham Jr. took the NFL by storm in his rookie campaign last season and it earned him the award – it was the first time a WR won the award since 2009 (Percy Harvin). This award is often dominated by QB’s and RB’s, not WR’s.

Eddie Lacy won the award in 2013 and from 2010-2012 three QB’s won (Sam Bradford, Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III). This year’s race is going to be wide open and there are more than a handful of top contenders alone.

2015 NFL Offensive ROY Predictions

My prediction to win the NFL offensive rookie of the year award is Melvin Gordon.

  • Best Bet: Melvin Gordon (San Diego Chargers) +650

Gordon was paying a bit more a month ago in this market, but he has steamed in and will likely continue to shorten as we get closer to the start of the season and more casual fans start placing their NFL futures bets.


There’s no reason Gordon won’t have a successful rookie campaign.

The Chargers have relied on Phillip Rivers a lot in recent years, but having a bruising RB with breakaway speed and moves will be a huge benefit to this offense. The Chargers will become a better team, pending Gordon stays healthy.

I also like the fact that the Chargers offense moves the football well. Gordon should see a lot of red zone touches this season and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to rack up a big TD total on the ground.

Plus, reports have stated Gordon looks good in the pass game, although most of the pass game work will end up going to Danny Woodhead. I’m also not too worried about the Chargers being careful about throwing Gordon into the trenches.

RB’s aren’t a long-term commodity in the NFL, so I expect Gordon to get worked hard early and often.

Lacy won the 2013 NFL offensive ROY award with 1178 rushing yards and 11 TD’s on 284 carries, plus 257 receiving yards and 0 TD’s on 35 receptions. I expect Gordon to surpass most of the numbers.

Who else will give Gordon a run for his money in the ROY race?

I believe Mariota will be the best rookie QB. Mariota may not win a lot of games, but from a statistical standpoints, I expect him to out produce Winston by a considerable margin. Mariota is “smarter” on the field.

I expect both of them to go through enough growing pains in their rookie campaign that they won’t win the offensive ROY award. I believe Gordon’s biggest competition will come from three WR’s.

Cooper, White and Nelson Agholor are three top contenders.

I don’t like White’s situation. He seems a bit banged up and Cutler has said he’s the #4 WR. If Cutler doesn’t get him the football, it’ll be tough to win. Cooper is in a great situation and has already built chemistry with QB  Derek Carr.

Cooper can run routes like nobody else and he’ll be a great NFL receiver.

Agholor is expected to contribute immediately for the Eagles and Chip Kelly. The Eagles are thin at WR and Agholor has walked into a perfect situation. The Eagles air it out regularly and Agholor could become this year’s Beckham Jr.

Todd Gurley will likely be eased into his new RB role with the Rams and I don’t think he’ll make a big enough impact in his rookie campaign. He’s still working on coming back from injury and may not even start the season.

T.J. Yeldon is in a great spot with the Jaguars, especially considering the passing game is now respectable and will draw the attention of defenses. Yeldon has a chance to surprise everyone by winning the offensive ROY award.
