NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year favorites: Bijan Robinson, QBs lead

Atlanta Falcons first round draft pick running back Bijan Robinson is the favorite to take home Offensive Rookie of the Year through Week 3.

Here we provide everything you need to know about the 2023/24 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year favorites, including their current odds.

The 2023 NFL Draft included a number of offensive prospects with incredible potential that are expected to make an impact on the league for the next decade or more.

As such, the battle for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award should be fiercely contested with a number of candidates thought to be in the running.

Current NFL superstars Dak Prescott, Saquon Barkley, Kyler Murray, Justin Herbert and Ja’Marr Chase are all former NFL Offensive Rookies of the Year. 

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson won last year’s award with 83 receptions for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns.

Who will emerge as the league’s best offensive rookie over the 2023/24 season?

Bijan Robinson +275

Despite the perceived diminishing value of running backs in the NFL, Atlanta's Bijan Robinson comes into the league regarded as a complete back after rushing for 3,410 yards and 33 touchdowns, while recording 60 catches for 805 yards and eight touchdowns out of the backfield at Texas. 

He immediately slots in as RB1 for a young Atlanta Falcons offense that needs more weapons for second-year quarterback Desmond Ridder. 

Through three games, Robinson has rushed 39 times for 213 yards while catching 14 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown.

Anthony Richardson +400

The Indianapolis Colts were the model of consistency at the quarterback position for two decades with Peyton Manning and - despite some injuries - Andrew Luck starting under center between 1998-2018. 

Since Luck’s surprise retirement, four quarterbacks - Jacoby Brissett, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and Matt Ryan - have led the team for just one year. 

Anthony Richardson, a Miami native who threw for 2,549 yards and 17 touchdowns and ran for 654 yards and nine TDs with the Florida Gators, is the Colts’ new long-term hope after they took him with the fourth overall pick. 

Richardson completed 30/47 passes for 279 yards plus a touchdown and an interception in the first two weeks of the season. He missed the Colts' Week 3 win with a concussion.

CJ Stroud +450

The Houston Texans, even with second-overall pick quarterback CJ Stroud, were predicted to be one of the NFL's worst teams in 2023/24.

They're 1-2 after three weeks, so that's still possible, but the play of CJ Stroud led them to a big 37-17 win over Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In three games, Stroud has a 64.5 completion percentage, 906 yards, and four passing touchdowns without an interception.

Devon Achane +600

Miami Dolphins running back Devon Achane, a third-round pick out of Texas A&M, had a monster game in the Dolphins' 70-20 Week 3 demolition of the Denver Broncos.

After being inactive in Week 1 and running the ball once in Week 2, Achane had 18 carries for 203 yards and two touchdowns on the ground as well as catching four passes for 30 yards and another two touchdowns in the air.

Puka Nacua +700

With star wide receiver Cooper Kupp missing the first four games after going on the Injured Reserve list, the Los Angeles Rams needed a target to step up for quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Enter Puka Nacua, a wide receiver out of BYU, who through two games has caught a league-leading 25 passes for 266 yards.

Nacua's 15 catches in Week 2 broke a single-game rookie record and he is the first rookie to catch over 10 passes in each of the first two games in his career.

He takes to the field on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

Zay Flowers +1200

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers has been one of Lamar Jackson's favorite targets early this year, catching 21 passes for 188 yards in three games.

The 22nd-overall pick out of Boston College has yet to score a touchdown, but he's shown his versatility with four rush attempts this season.

Jahmyr Gibbs +1400

The second running back taken in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Jahmyr Gibbs hasn't been thrown into the fire in the first three weeks of his rookie year.

With 139 rushing yards on 31 carries and 59 receiving yards on 10 catches, he has been used as both a back and a wide receiver.
