Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is the heavy favorite to win the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year award.

According to odds on DraftKings, Burrow is currently at the top of the field at +215. He’s followed by Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire at +550, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa at +700 and Colts running back Jonathan Taylor at +1000.

Given how it’s a passing league, it’s a safe bet to pick a quarterback to win the award. That means you have to ride with the guy you think will get the most reps.

Burrow is almost certainly going to be the day one starter in Cincy. I’m not saying he’ll have the best career, but Tua and Justin Herbert might not even start right away.

It’d be shocking if Burrow wasn’t under center week one.

Having said that, I expect Jonathan Taylor to absolutely dominate in the NFL. I watched him destroy defenses at Wisconsin for three seasons.

He’s fourth in the odds, but he is going to have every opportunity possible to carry the rock often for the Colts.

I loved the draft pick by Indy, and I think Taylor is going to be one hell of an impressive running back!
