Kenny Pickett headlines the Offensive Rookie of the Year bets to place

Kenny Pickett +900

I don’t love taking the favorite in futures markets, but I do think Pickett’s +900 price warrants a bet on the most likely winner here. The local Pittsburgh product has reportedly been outplaying Trubisky in training camp, and he could steal the starting job sooner than later. If and when that happens, Pickett could be the only rookie QB who starts for most of the season.

Tyrion Davis-Price +6000

Elijah Mitchell is the clear No. 1 running back on the San Francisco 49ers’ depth chart, but Tyrion Davis-Price is one injury away from the starting job. The LSU product has impressed in training camp, and if he steals the starting job at any point this season, he’ll become the head of one of the best rushing offenses in the league.

At 60/1, Davis-Price is worth a shot with that massive upside.

Tyler Allgeier +7500

Like Davis-Price, Tyler Allgeier could be one injury away from winning a starting running back job. Even if Cordarrelle Patterson stays healthy all season, he’s a more efficient weapon in the passing game. Allgeier may already be a better true runner than Patterson, and the rookie out of BYU could be in for a huge workload this season with the Atlanta Falcons wanting to develop their young talent.
