In the latest NFL OROY odds, Drake London is the +600 favorite to win the prestigious award after an eight-reception, 86-yard (and one TD) contest against the Rams. Rounding out the top three are fellow receivers Jahan Dotson (Commanders) and Garrett Wilson (Jets), who were both first-round picks.

The first running back on the board is Brian Robinson Jr, although he was placed on injured reserve for the first four weeks as he was taken down before the season. He is followed by Breece Hall (Jets), who had 50 rushing yards in Week 2 plus a receiving touchdown, and WR Chris Olave (Saints), who was our pick to win after Week 1. He had five catches for 80 yards against the Buccaneers in his second outing.

Garrett Wilson takes a big leap in OROY ratings

The second wide selected in the draft (10th overall) by the New York Jets was Garrett Wilson. He backed off to a solid start (four catches for 52 yards), with a monster in Week 2 to lead a remarkable Jets comeback. Wilson, who went to school at Ohio State, torched the Browns on his homecoming, hitting eight receptions for 102 yards and two touchdowns.

He got a last-minute score that contributed to a ridiculous Jets comeback to break the Browns’ hearts. His OROY ratings went from +1600 to +800 after Week 2. Another head-turner is 16th overall Commanders pick Jahan Dotson. He has three touchdowns in the first two weeks, although he went from co-favorite after Week 1 to slightly behind Drake London.

Two Steelers who are still very much in the conversation are Kenny Pickett, the only QB taken in the first round (+1300), and George Pickens (+1400), even though he only had two catches for 26 yards early on.

Chris Olave turns heads

After Week 1, where Chris Olave got off to a good start collecting three catches for 41 yards, we were on to him considering his QB Jameis Winston’s propensity to throw the ball. He did even better in his recall performance, leading the Saints with 80 receiving yards, on a whopping 13 targets (although he had a fumble).

He’s aided by high-profile teammate Michael Thomas in front of him, who has 122 yards and three touchdowns on his return, having missed all of 2021.

Olave was the third receiver chosen (11th overall), immediately after Wilson, so he has a high draft pedigree. He has 121 yards so far on the campaign on 16 targets (eight receptions) but is yet to touch ground.

As he becomes more comfortable in attack for the Saints, expect him to continue to eat receptions with Winston often looking for him. At +1200, he presents intriguing value, with four players sporting shorter odds than him.

Pick: Chris Olave (+1200)
