2019 NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year

Some of the top NFL rookies on offense will be up for the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year award, and we take a look at the stats and background of some of the most likely prospects along with the odds and predictions of who might be receiving the prestigious award.

Most of the NFL rookies have been drafted or signed by now, and since there’s no telling exactly how well any of them will do on a new team against professional football players, odds makers have released various futures bets that give gamblers a chance to predict their success, including one for the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Last year the honor went to a running back, but this season the top two predictions are quarterbacks, so it is anyone’s guess as to which of these newbies will put on the most impressive debut in 2019.

We examine the top candidates (and a few of the long shots) for this career-changing award and give the odds and predictions of which young athlete will most likely win the 2019 Offensive NFL Rookie of the Year award.

Who was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year last season?

 In 2018, New York Giants Saquon Barkley was named the Offensive ROTY.

Barkley was incredible – on a struggling 5-11 team, he ran the ball 261 yards for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns and caught 91 balls for 721 yards and 4 more touchdowns.

In his rookie season, Barkley broke 3 Giants franchise records, including most rushing touchdowns by a rookie (11) and he broke four NFL records, including most receptions by a rookie running back (91).

How is the winner of the award decided?

A nationwide panel of fifty members of the AP who cover the NFL on a regular basis selects the winner of the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award, and then they cast ballots at the end of the season before the playoffs.

The league will announce the winner at the NFL Honors Presentation, which is held the night before the Super Bowl is played.

This season, the presentation will happen on Saturday, February 1, 2020.

Kyler Murray

Sportsbook Kyler Murray Link
888Sport NJ +225

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Kyler Murray is so good (think Baker Mayfield meets Patrick Mahomes) that the Arizona Cardinals were willing to trade away the quarterback they drafted in the first round last year (Josh Rosen), and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury knew he wanted Murray under center before he even got the Arizona job.

Position: Quarterback

Size: 5’ 10”, 207 pounds

NFL Team: Arizona Cardinals

College: Oklahoma

2018 Stats Line: Completed 260-of-377 for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns with 7 interceptions while running the ball 140 times for 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Dwayne Haskins

888Sport NJ +600

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Some experts believe Haskins is every bit as good as Murray, plus he has the height of a more traditional NFL quarterback, but Haskins isn’t quite as mobile, having only run 79 times for 108 yards and 4 touchdowns, but regardless, he and Colt McCoy will be backing up the newly acquired Case Keenum, at least at first.

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’ 3”, 231 pounds

NFL Team: Washington Redskins

College: Ohio State

2018 Stats Line: Completed 373-of-533 for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns with 8 interceptions.

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Miles Sanders joins a Philadelphia running backs room that was just made better in March with the addition of Jordan Howard, formerly of the Chicago Bears, who will most likely start while Sanders takes snaps to give him rest and to learn.

College: Penn State

2018 Stats Line: 220 rushing attempts for 1,274 yards and 9 touchdowns and 24 receptions for 139 yards.

N’Keal Harry

Sportsbook N’Keal Harry Link
888Sport NJ +1600

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

N’Keal Harry gives quarterback Tom Brady a deep threat target who has the size to battle for catches and get yards afterwards and the speed to pull defensive attention towards him, which frees up the middle of the field for other playmakers.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 2”, 228 pounds

NFL Team: New England Patriots

College: Arizona State

2018 Stats Line: 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and 9 touchdowns and 7 rushing attempts for 10 yards and a touchdown.

888Sport NJ +1600

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

David Montgomery adds depth to the Chicago rushing attack that just lost Jordan Howard to free agency and joins newly acquired Mike Davis, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks, and Tarik Cohen, who is in his third NFL season.

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Size: 6’ 4”, 249 pounds

NFL Team: Denver Broncos

College: Iowa

2018 Stats Line: 39 receptions for 519 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Marquise Brown

888Sport NJ +2000

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Being a wide receiver on Lamar Jackson’s RPO offense wasn’t considered a dream job, but Marquise Brown gives Jackson a quick out during blitzes and other emergencies and looks to be an immediate starter across from receiver Willie Snead.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 5’ 9”, 166 pounds

NFL Team: Baltimore Ravens

College: Oklahoma

2018 Stats Line: 75 receptions for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Mecole Hardman

Sportsbook Mecole Hardman Link
888Sport NJ +2000

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Mecole Hardman, known as Carey to teammates, joins a Chiefs’ roster that will most likely not include All-Pro Tyreek Hill, who faces discipline for off field behavior, so Hardman’s role could prove to be bigger than first anticipated.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 5’ 10”, 187 pounds

NFL Team: Kansas City Chiefs

College: Georgia

2018 Stats Line: 35 receptions for 543 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Parris Campbell

Sportsbook Parris Campbell Link
888Sport NJ +2500

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Parris Campbell is an incredibly fast receiver who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine, and he gives quarterback Andrew Luck another breakaway target to take advantage of the double teams receiver T.Y. Hilton now necessitates. 

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 0”, 205 pounds

NFL Team: Indianapolis Colts

College: Ohio State

2018 Stats Line: 90 receptions for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Daniel Jones

Sportsbook Daniel Jones Link
888Sport NJ +2500

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Daniel Jones is (hopefully?) the answer to the who’s-after-Eli-Manning questions, and he will have at least half of the 2018 season to sit back and watch, but if the team with Manning under center begins to fade like they did last season, Jones may take over sooner rather than later.

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’ 5”, 221 pounds

NFL Team: New York Giants

College: Duke

2018 Stats Line: 237 completions for 2,674 yards and 22 touchdowns with 9 interceptions and 104 rushing attempts for 319 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Drew Lock

Sportsbook Drew Lock Link
888Sport NJ +2500

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

Drew Lock is in a fantastic position with the Denver Broncos because Joe Flacco will be expected to start next season and Lock will be expected to sit back and learn, though if Flacco can’t get the job done by mid-season expect to see more and more of Lock under center.

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’ 4”, 228 pounds

NFL Team: Denver Broncos

College: Missouri

2018 Stats Line: 275 completions for 3,498 yards and 28 touchdowns with 8 interceptions.

D.K. Metcalf

Sportsbook D.K. Metcalf Link
888Sport NJ +2500

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

For someone of D.K. Metcalf’s size and speed – he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.33 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine – it’s surprising that he wasn’t taken until the second round, but he apparently has focus problems that lead to dropped balls, something that head coach Pete Carroll will have to help him fix.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 3”, 228 pounds

NFL Team: Seattle Seahawks

College: Mississippi

2018 Stats Line: 26 receptions for 569 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Darrell Henderson

Sportsbook Darrell Henderson Link
888Sport NJ +2800

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

If the rumors of running back Todd Gurley’s arthritis are at all true, Henderson will have to step in to give him some down time now and again, and on a team like the Los Angeles Rams that requires an above average running game, Henderson’s role becomes important.

Position: Running back

Size: 5’ 8”, 208 pounds

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: Memphis

2018 Stats Line: 214 attempts for 1,909 yards and 22 touchdowns along with 19 receptions for 295 yards and 3 touchdowns.

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside

Sportsbook J.J. Arcega-Whiteside Link
888Sport NJ +3300

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside becomes a Philadelphia Eagle receiver during a season that the receiving room has been packed with free agents because quarterback Carson Wentz has to prove to the football world that he’s capable of leading the team to the Super Bowl without his departed backup, Nick Foles.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 2”, 225 pounds

NFL Team: Philadelphia Eagles

College: Stanford

2018 Stats Line: 63 receptions for 1,059 yards and 14 touchdowns.

A.J. Brown

Sportsbook A.J. Brown Link
888Sport NJ +3300

* 21+ | NJ only | If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER

A.J. Brown has decent size and speed – he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine – and he’ll join a receivers room let by Corey Davis and the newly acquired Adam Humphries, all with the goal to help improve quarterback Marcus Mariota’s passing attack, ranked 29th last season.

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 0”, 226 pounds

NFL Team: Tennessee Titans

College: Mississippi

2018 Stats Line: 85 receptions for 1,320 yards and 6 touchdowns.
