Offensive Rookie of the Year Trends
Here are some recent trends to know before betting on the award:
- Dak Prescott (2016) is the only QB to win the award in the last six years
- RBs have won the award each of the last two seasons and in four of the last six seasons
- Anytime the OROY award has gone to RBs in consecutive years, it has never stopped at just two – RBs claimed the award from 1971-1975, 1977-1982, 1986-1991, 1993-1997, and 1999-2002
- Dan Marino is the only QB to win OROY with less than 12 starts in his rookie season
- The award has gone to a player from the NFC in 12 straight seasons – Vince Young in 2006 is the last AFC player to win it
- The Vikings have the most OROY winners with five
- There are nine teams who have never had an OROY winner: Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks
- No TE or offensive lineman has ever won the award
Top Contenders at Each Position
Three tight ends have opened with odds to win the award, and TJ Hockenson and Noah Fant – both selected in the first round – are listed at +1200 and +2000, respectively. These are very short odds considering no TE has ever won the award.
Josh Jacobs was the only RB selected in the first round and is the only rookie running back who enters the season with a clear lead role in his respective offense. (We’ll likely see David Montgomery popping up here soon, too.)
Kyler Murray will almost certainly start Week 1 for the Arizona Cardinals, which explains why his odds are so short. But Dwayne Haskins also has a great opportunity to start for Washington, as he will battle Case Keenum and Colt McCoy for the starting job this summer. No other rookie QB projects to start very early for his respective team.

- Seven of the nine QBs to win the award were drafted in the first-round
- 24 of the 34 RBs to win the award were drafted in the first-round
