The NFL’s preseason starts this week, and now is the time to start digging into the awards markets.

When it comes to futures markets, you do not need to bet on just one player, and you should also keep adding bets throughout the season. Think of future bets like building a portfolio. If you have four players to win at 20-1, and one of your four players wins, you are profiting a lot even though you just lost three other bets.

Here’s a look at 2023 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds from DraftKings Sportsbook and discuss some good bets to make now.

Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons, +275

Robinson was the first non-QB skill position player to be drafted this past season, and he is expected to make an immediate impact for the Falcons, who love to run the football. Talentwise, it is no shock to see Robinson as chalk for the award, but the situation in Atlanta may be tough for Robinson to win this award. Atlanta has veteran RB Cordarralle Patterson as well as sophomore Tyler Allgier, who will also be getting snaps. Also, if any quarterback has a great season, this award will probably be differed to them. I see why Robinson is chalk, but at these odds, I’m not sure it’s worth a wager.

Bryce Young, QB, Carolina Panthers +500

Bryce Young is the Panthers’ QB1, and if he performs, this is his award to lose. Young does not have the best skill players around him, but he does have a solid offensive line to work with. History has shown that rookie first-round QBs have a very difficult time in their first NFL season, and Young’s lack of star power around him will make it difficult to succeed. However, Young was the top prospect in this draft, and despite his size, he has great awareness, toughness, and he throws the football with accuracy.

Anthony Richardson, QB, Indianapolis Colts +600

History has shown that mobile QBs have an easier time adjusting in the NFL. As a pure athlete, Richardson’s ability to pick up yards on the ground will help make his case for this award. The Colts’ weapons leave a lot to be desired, and Richardson is raw, but there are certain scenarios where Colt’s head coach Shane Steichen develops his offense around Richardson’s athleticism, and Richardson takes the league by storm. +600 seems fair, and it is probably worth a sprinkle when it is confirmed he is the Colts’ QB1.


Rashee Rice, WR, Kansas City Chiefs +3500

Going from any college QB to Patrick Mahomes is exciting, and Rice is a strong, fluid athlete who can make a splash in Kansas City right away. Rice finished his senior season with 96 catches for 1,355 yards and ten touchdowns. He was rated very highly during the combine, and he has a great relative athletic score. With Kadarius Toney injured again, Rice has a chance to start out of the gate for the Chiefs. At 35-1, taking a rookie on the best offense in football, where he has a chance to get valuable snaps, has value.

Quentin Johnston, WR, Los Angeles Chargers +2200

Johnston is a big-body receiver, and pairing him with Justin Herbert seems like a potential match made in heaven. Johnston is expected to start immediately, and given how injury-prone Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are, Johnston can have a huge role in this offense immediately. The Chargers also hired Kellen Moore to be their offensive coordinator, and I anticipate more down-the-field passing from Herbert, which will bode well for Johnston.


Marvin Mims, WR, Denver Broncos +10000

Mims was the first draft pick of the Sean Payton era in Denver, and he actually moved up in the draft to select the Oklahoma wide receiver. Now, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler are hurt, and there is a clear angle for Mims to be the No. 3 wide receiver in Denver. Mims finished his collegiate career with 123 catches for 2,398 yards and 20 touchdowns in three seasons. He also was a punt and kick returner for the Sooners. This is a long shot for a reason, but Mims should get snaps, and this award should have life.
