The race for the 2020 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award is going to be an incredibly interesting one. This was a loaded draft class for skill position talent, but the rookies have also had a strange, shortened offseason with no preseason games to prepare them for the NFL.

Even with the uncertainty, the betting odds on FanDuel Sportsbook paint a clear favorite in the running: first overall pick Joe Burrow. Burrow's college teammate Clyde Edwards-Helaire isn't far behind, however, and with so much uncertainty we could easily see some long shots contend for the award too.

Here are the top 15 players in the odds to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2020.
