Zach Wilson is the new quarterback under center for the New York Jets this season, and there's optimism surrounding the team that's been foreign in recent years. Fans didn't see much of Wilson in New York's first preseason matchup, but he got a bit more run on Saturday against the Green Bay Packers and delivered.
His strong outing in Week 2 of the preseason gave his Offensive Rookie of the Year odds a boost on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Zach Wilson OROY Odds
Wilson found himself tied with Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris for the fourth best odds at +850 following the first week of the preseason. However, after his performance against the Packers, Wilson now sits alone in fourth with +750 odds to win OROY.
It's a slight increase, but it could be a sign of things to come. Wilson went 6-of-9 for 63 yards in his first preseason outing. He followed that up by going 9-of-11 against Green Bay while racking up 128 yards and 2 TDs.
That included an impressive throw on the run from the QB that was perfectly placed near the sideline for Corey Davis.
There's a plethora of first-year QBs hoping to make their mark this season, but Wilson, as his team's clear-cut starter, has a golden opportunity to capture OROY honors.
Trevor Lawrence remains the favorite at +300 in this award race, followed by Justin Fields (+500) and Trey Lance (+600).
