Who will win NFL Comeback Player of the Year?
A quarterback has won Comeback Player of the Year in the last four NFL seasons, so looking at signal callers is a sensible move when betting on this market.
Jameis Winston (+5000) is a player who is definitely worth considering as he returns from injury with a much-improved receiver corps available to him in New Orleans.
Winston is an underrated quarterback who can put up big numbers, and a big season for the Saints would put him right in the mix.
A couple of running backs who could be worth a wager are Christian McCaffrey (+1200) and Saquon Barkley (-225).
Both players have a reputation of being injury-prone but, when healthy, are among the most devastating rushers in the league.
McCaffrey in particular is capable of reeling off huge games with his dual rushing-receiving threat, so if he plays 17 games he could be a shoo-in for this award.
Barkley has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, but is one of the most elusive backs in the NFL and will be hoping he can emulate his Rookie of the Year season in 2018.
Who won NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2021?
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow won Comeback Player of the Year in 2021 after an incredible return to action.
Following a strong start as a rookie, Burrow tore his ACL and MCL to end his season in Week 7 but returned in time for Week 1 of 2021.
He then led the Bengals to the AFC North title with a 10-7 record – their first since 2015 – and broke franchise records for passing yards (4,611) and touchdowns (34).
Burrow and the Bengals would go on to shock the league and make it all the way to the Super Bowl, where they gave up a lead late on to lose to the Los Angeles Rams.
For his efforts in the regular season, Burrow was named Comeback Player of the Year.
