Back To Home

There’s no clear criteria for the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award, won last year by Joe Burrow. Here are the PointsBet favorites with two weeks to go:

  • Saquon Barkley (+140): Can New York’s workhorse RB lead the G-Men to the playoffs?
  • Geno Smith (+180): From Jets bust to Seahawks standout (70.7 completion percentage), Smith was favored until Seattle’s slide.
  • Christian McCaffrey (+275): CMC has given the Niners a huge lift (eight straight wins) following two injury-plagued seasons.
  • Jared Goff (+750): Goff has led the Lions to playoff contention, rediscovering his Pro Bowl form with the Rams.

TAKE FROM OUR TRADER: “We think this is Saquon’s to lose. The vibe around Geno has very much died down, while Saquon is back to being an elite back. McCaffrey is probably more of a default winner if Geno and Saquon limp their way through the last couple of games. Goff probably needs some standout performances in wins.”
