Odds to Win the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award

Odell Beckham Jr. #13 of the New York Giants runs after a catch in the third quarter of a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on October 1, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. The Bucs defeated the Giants 25-23.

The NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award is given to a player who has shown perseverance in overcoming adversity. In most cases, it’s awarded to a player who is coming off an injury and fares well in his return to the league. For the 2018 season, there’s no shortage of talented stars who could fall into that category.

Keenan Allen and Jordy Nelson are the last two winners of the Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Odds on which man will be crowned the 2018 NFL Comeback Player of the Year are out at 5Dimes, with Odell Beckham Jr., Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz listed as the +450 front-runners. Aaron Rodgers (+500), J.J. Watt (+500), David Johnson (+600), Deshaun Watson (+800), Dalvin Cook (+1200) and Sam Bradford (+1800) are also near the top of the list.

The injury bug ran rampant through the 2017 NFL campaign, and the number of high-profile players returning from injury proves it. Beckham Jr. suffered an ankle injury in Week 5 a year ago and was shut down for the season after undergoing surgery to repair the fracture. Luck missed the entire season with a litany of ailments, and at one point there was some debate on whether he would ever see the field again. In the middle of a fantastic sophomore campaign, Wentz went down with a knee injury in Week 14 and hasn’t played a regular-season snap since.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was the recipient of the 2017 Comeback Player of the Year Award, joining fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who took home the hardware in 2016. Allen and Nelson are the only wideouts to win the award since Steve Smith won the title in 2005.

Is there any value on the board?

Due to the starry names headlining the oddsboard, bettors can find plenty of value at excellent prices. Cook looked like an all-world talent a year ago but lasted only a month into his rookie season before tearing his ACL in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. Cook finished with 354 rushing yards and two touchdowns as a result.

The Florida State product looks fully healthy in the preseason and is in line for a huge season for the talented Vikings, so taking a shot on him to win the Comeback Player of the Year Award at +1200 is a fantastic bet, in my opinion.
