Evan Mobley is still in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, but the Rookie of the Year favorite is set to return to the court this week.

Mobley (+105) has increased his lead this month, but Scottie Barnes (+270) has moved ahead of Cade Cunningham (+380) in Rookie of the Year odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. Those three are the leading favorites for Rookie of the Year, and Franz Wagner (+1300) has increased his odds to win from +2200 earlier this month.

Mobley will be tough to beat if he remains healthy. The Cavaliers star center is scoring 13.8 points per game, leads all rookies in rebounding (8.4) and averages the most blocks at 1.8 per game. His versatility has been most impressive. Mobley's strength on the defensive end is exceptional for a rookie, and his switchability in ball screens is staggering.

Barnes tops all rookies in scoring (15.6) and FG shooting (49.5%), and he's just behind Mobley in rebounding (8.3 per game). Cunningham (15.3 points) and Wagner (15.0) are next in rookie scoring followed by Jalen Green (14.3), Mobley and Chris Duarte (13.3). Josh Giddey (6.1) leads all rookies in assists and has been solid in rebounding (7.1) with his scoring (10.8) held back by poor shooting.

Here are the leading favorites and contenders to win the 2021-22 NBA Rookie of the Year award on FanDuel Sportsbook.
