Odds Released for Offensive Rookie of the Year



Odds have been released for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, including for new Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool.

Claypool is 40/1 to win the award this upcoming season after being selected in the second round by Pittsburgh in the 2020 NFL Draft. He has the eleventh-best odds out of all rookie wide receivers.

The Notre Dame product will be expected to contribute immediately for the Steelers next season. At 6-foot-4, 229 lbs, he should serve as a reliable big play weapon and red zone target for returning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Claypool shined during his senior season in South Bend, catching 66 passes for 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns. His production, coupled with his impressive stature, led to the Steelers selecting him No. 49 overall.

Claypool also has the fourth-best odds amongst AFC North rookies.

No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow has the best odds to take home Rookie of the Year honors at 5/2.

His Cincinnati teammate and former Clemson wide receiver Tee Higgins is 22/1.

Former Ohio State running back and Baltimore Ravens second round pick JK Dobbins is listed at 16/1, fourth-best at his position.
