Alvin Kamara overwhelming favorite to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
Alvin Kamara is having an incredible season in his first year in the NFL.
The New Orleans RB and former Tennessee Volunteer is definitely having an impact after being selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Kamara has 459 yards rushing, 447 yards receiving, and 7 total TDs for the Saints.
He has been incredibly effective with the offense while also returning five kickoffs for 120 total yards. The Saints are now 8-2 on the season with Kamara playing a key role in that performance. He is a dynamic back who is able to contribute in multiple ways. As a result, he is the clear favorite at Bovada to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
Kamara may be the favorite, but Jacksonville Jaguars RB and former LSU star Leonard Fournette is listed in second place in odds to win the award:
Fournette has 740 yards rushing and 7 total TDs with the Jaguars in eight games. It is fair to wonder where Fournette may be stats wise if he had been able to play in every game. He has four 100-yard rushing games and is looking like an offensive force after putting up impressive numbers at LSU.
