NFL Comeback Player of the Year Odds



  • Saquon Barkley played 13 games in 2021 and finished the season on the field, so one could argue that he shouldn’t be eligible for the award. He is, though, and he’s currently the favorite at every major sportsbook. He looks more explosive than he has over the last two seasons and is being fed touches in a lackluster Giants offense.
  • Christian McCaffrey played in just seven games in 2021 but was still a Top 3 pick in the majority of fantasy football drafts this offseason, with many experts ranking him No. 1 overall. Through three games, he has 50 carries for 243 yards and a touchdown and 10 receptions for 57 yards. 20+ touches per game is what you want to see, but the Panthers are a mess. If they are completely out of it the last third of the season, they could scale back McCaffrey’s usage, which could hurt his chances for the award.
  • Brian Robinson Jr. is a dark horse favorite right now after being the victim of an offseason shooting. He is on injured reserve but is already participating in agility drills and could be ready to return as early as Week 5. He’ll have to share the backfield with Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic but was already projected to earn the No. 1 RB role prior to his incident. Plus, he has the best story of anyone on this list easily. Always follow the storylines.
  • Derrick Henry was a preseason favorite for this award, but the Tennessee offense has gotten off to a slow start. Through three games, he has 54 carries for 192 yards and two touchdowns and five receptions for 58 yards. The Titans are off to a slow start. If they’re able to turn things around, it’ll probably be because they were able to lean on Henry.
  • James Robinson is an interesting case. He’s +1600 at FanDuel Sportsbook but doesn’t appear to be listed at any other sportsbook. At first glance, I’m not entirely sure why that is. He looks great, though, and he’s one of my favorite bets on this list because of his odds. Through three games, Robinson has 51 carries for 230 yards and three touchdowns and six receptions for 33 yards and another score. I’ll gladly take a chance on 16-to-1 odds based on his hot start before his odds drop.
