The NFL season has hit October and Week 4, and the NFL futures and player awards are seeing some significant adjustments. However, two of the favorites for Defensive Rookie of the Year are holding steady at the top into October.
Linebacker Micah Parsons of the Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Patrick Surtain II of the Denver Broncos are co-leaders at +400, according to current DROY odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. Linebacker Jamin Davis (+1000) of the WFT and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (+950) of the Cleveland Browns are holding steady in the Defensive ROY race.
Through 3 games, Parson's has 13 total tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks. Surtain picked off Offensive ROY candidate Trevor Lawrence in Week 2, and the versatile and instinctive defensive back has been a lockdown defender in helping the Denver defense rise to the top in the early season.
