These players have the best chance to win Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2020

The 2020 NFL draft featured several high-profile first-round picks on the offensive side of the ball, led by LSU quarterback Joe Burrow (Bengals) at No. 1 overall and concluding with his college teammate, running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Chiefs) at No. 32.

Several wide receivers came off the board in between and a slew of running backs heard their names called in the second round.

But which player is the best bet to win next season’s Offensive Rookie of the Year?

Joe Burrow, QB, Bengals (+250)

QB Draft Preview: LSU's Joe Burrow Is at the Head of the Class

Burrow is a safe bet because he’s one of the few offensive rookies who is a lock to start in Week 1. He also has a pretty strong cast of skill players to throw the ball to in AJ Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon. He should find early success even if it takes a few weeks for him to acclimate to the NFL game.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Chiefs (+800)

Like Burrow, Edwards-Helaire ranks high on this list because of his expected volume of touches. Chiefs coach Andy Reid will use the LSU star as a Brian Westbrook-type in Kansas City, which means a lot of touches, yards and touchdowns to the hard-to-tackle running back.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Dolphins (+800)

Tagovailoa has to be on this list because of his status as a top-5 pick, but there’s a chance he won’t even play in 2020. The Dolphins could decide to ride Ryan Fitzpatrick and let Tagovailoa get healthier than he’s been in several seasons, let alone recover from the hip injury he suffered last November.
