Bengals wideout Ja'Marr Chase, who set the NFL rookie record for receiving yards (1,455), won the award last season. This season two rookie wideouts, Treylon Burks and Drake London, slide in tied for the third-lowest betting odds at +800. Investing in a rookie wideout winning the OROY hasn’t been a wise investment over the past two decades, as prior to Chase, only three wide receivers (Odell Beckham, 2014; Precy Harvin, 2009, and Anquan Boldin, 2003) have taken home the hardware since 2000.

A running back has won the award in four of the last nine seasons and in 2022 New York Jets Breece Hall slides in as the second overall betting choice at +750. Bettors have to look just inside the top 10 to find the next running back offered as a betting option in Seattle's Ken Walker III (+1000).

Two players to keep an eye on in the OROY market are Kansas City wide receiver Skyy Moore (+1000) and Green Bay wideout Christian Watson (+1100). Moore, a former Western Michigan standout, could become Patrick Mahomes' top receiving threat after the club traded Tyreek Hill to Miami. Meanwhile, Watson is poised for a significant amount of targets after the Packers traded all-pro wideout Davante Adams to the Raiders.
