- Najee Harris has +1000 odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year.
- Only Ja’Marr Chase (-140) and Mac Jones (+275) have shorter odds.
PITTSBURGH - Najee Harris is having a very respectable season as a rookie running back, but his odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year remain long.
He’s 10th in the NFL in rushing yards but is second in the NFL in carries, maybe showing he’s not the most efficient running back in the league.
Harris is also tied for 15th in rushing touchdowns on the season so does he belong as the third choice on the online sportsbooks?
Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds
- Ja'Marr Chase -140
- Mac Jones +275
- Najee Harris +1000
Harris also contributes in the receiving game, ranking seventh among running backs in receiving yards and second in receptions. His numbers are solid but seem to indicate a reliance on volume rather than efficiency.
Can He Compete With Chase?
There’s an argument to be made that Harris’ odds should be much closer to Mac Jones’, however, the fact is that everybody is chasing Ja’Marr Chase at the moment.
Chase is third in the NFL in receiving yards despite being 11th in targets and 23rd in receptions.
He’s also caught the fourth-most touchdowns in the NFL this season.

There’s a lot of time for Harris to catch up to Chase, but as of right now there’s a big discrepancy between the two. If Chase has a couple of weeks in which he fails to put up numbers, the gap could start to close but Harris would need to work quickly.
