USA TODAY Sports
The Field – In bets like this, it’s always best to consider the field your top option. More likely than not, your book only offers a couple of players for the comeback player of the year, which means you get the rest of the NFL for odds up to +300. The top candidates for the field would include Eli Manning, Sam Bradford, Reggie Wayne, Doug Martin and even somebody like Michael Vick. While it may be tough for a defensive player to win this award, I also like the thoughts of the field including Demarcus Ware, Clay Matthews and Von Miller. There is tremendous value in taking the field in this prop bet.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots – Getting odds of +500 with Rob Gronkowski is an absolute gift. While the comeback player of the year has never been awarded to a tight end, Gronkowski isn’t your ordinary tight end. Gronkowski has started 44 games in his career and has 42 touchdowns. When healthy, Gronkowski is by far the best tight end in football and Tom Brady’s favorite target on the field. Gronkowski says he’s ready to go and expects himself to participate in every game this season. Oddmakers are banking on the superstar tight end not playing all 16 games, which explains the high line. Still, I’ll take a chance with the insane odds.
Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons – The other player on the board I suggest throwing some money towards is Julio Jones. Last season, Jones was on pace for 130 catches and more than 1,800 receiving yards before he got hurt in October. Despite playing in just five games, Jones caught 41 passes for 580 yards and two touchdowns. Jones is by far one of the top receivers in the league and gets a ton of looks in a Flacons offense that has sometimes abandoned the running game. With Jones being ready to go, you can expect well over 1,000 receiving yards and double-digit touchdowns. Those numbers put Jones in a great spot to win the award and make you some big boy money with odds of +250.
