Cash In On Value-Packed NFL Comeback Player Of The Year Odds

Written by on August 11, 2016

Will Kansas City Chiefs Jamaal Charles get back to performing like the perennial Pro Bowl player he has before missing nearly the entire 2015 season? Will returning Green Bay Packers No. 1 wideout Jordy Nelson or maybe veteran signal-callers Andrew Luck or Tony Romo shine like never before? If you want to know which NFL stars have the best chances of cashing in on the value-packed Comeback Player of the Year odds, then you’re about to find out right now. Let’s get started with these betting odds.

Analyzing The Cash In On Value-Packed NFL Comeback Player Of The Year Odds


Jamaal Charles +450

Charles rushed for over 1,000 yards in three straight seasons and five of six before getting injured last season. Still, Jamaal Charles looks like a player that could be on the decline as his rushing total declined in each of the three seasons prior to 2015.

Jordy Nelson +450

Nelson had his best season ever in 2014 by catching 98 passes for 1,519 yards but has been dealing with knee issues – to his uninjured good knee – during training camp, so I’m going to remain skeptical until I see otherwise out of Aaron Rodgers’ closest teammate.

Andrew Luck +600

Luck passed for at least 3,800 yards while leading Indianapolis to 11 wins in each of his first three seasons with the Colts before being limited to just 1,881 passing yards in just seven starts last season. Right now, Luck and his stunning +600 return make him a must-bet wager against his NFL Futures Odds.

Tony Romo +750

Romo will have a chance if he can stay healthy and led the Cowboys to a playoff appearance, but I’m pretty sure the Boys will have Romo throwing as little as possible in 2016 while handing the ball off to gifted running back Ezekiel Elliott early and often!

Colin Kaepernick +1700

Kaepernick may have lost his starting job to Blaine Gabbert last season while passing for just 1,615 yards in eight starts, but if he regains the job in Chip Kelly’s explosive offensive system, his dual-threat playmaking ability could land the Comeback Player of the Year award. At a stunning +1700, Kap’s winning the starting job is paramount to him winning.

Joe Flacco +1700

Flacco started 10 games last season but battled slew of injuries all season while failing to pass for at least 3,000 yards for the first time since his rookie season in 2008.  A healthy Flacco could not only win this ward, but lead Baltimore back to the playoffs for seventh time in the last nine seasons!

Kelvin Benjamin +1700

Benjamin became the Panthers’ No. 1 wideout as a rookie in 2014 by catching 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine scores and he could have an even better campaign in 2016 after missing all of last season while playing with an improved Cam Newton and opposite talented No. 2 receiver Devin Funchess.

Steve Smith Sr. +1700

Smith played and started just nine games in 2015 while catching 46 passes for a modest 670 yards and three scores just one season after grabbing 79 passes for 1,065 yards and a half-dozen touchdowns in 2014. After backing out on his proposed retirement, can Smith dial up another surprising campaign in 2016? It could happen, though I say, likely not!

Robert Griffin III +2000

The aptly named RG3 never saw the field in 2015 after losing his starting job to Kirk Cousins, but I genuinely believe that he could resurrect his career right away under the tutelage of offensive genius Hue Jackson in 2016. At a value-packed +2000, he’s worth a wager for sure!

Eddie Lacy +2800

After rushing for over 1,100 yards in each of his first two seasons with the Packers, Eddie Lacy was limited to 15 games and 758 rushing yards in a dozen starts, mostly because he was overweight and in head coach Mike McCarthy’s doghouse. However, reports say Lacy is in phenomenal shape and looking to bounce back in a big way in 2016. At +2800, I say Lacy is definitely deserving of a wager.

Justin Forsett +2800

Forsett was limited to just 641 yards in 10 starts after rushing for a stellar 1,266 yards in 2014. Forsett is a long, long shot if you ask me. Save your money here!

Jimmy Graham +3600

Graham was limited to just 48 catches for 605 yards in his first season in Seattle after racking up a minimum of 889 yards in each of his previous four seasons with New Orleans. Graham was starting to come around after a slow start last season – right before getting injured. Still, I think he’s going to have a big season in 2016 and one that could result in him winning this season’s Comeback Player of the Year award.
