According to Bovada, the former Alabama RB Eddie Lacy is ahead in the race for rookie of the year. Keenan Allen is next on their list according to the odds. Check out the odds foor the rest of the players that have been listed:

Eddie Lacy (GB) RB                              3/2
Keenan Allen (SD) WR                           11/4
Mike Glennon (TB) QB                           3/1
Giovani Bernard (CIN) RB                       9/2
Zac Stacy (ST) RB                                 11/2

I still like Allen’s chances to win the race. He has been outstanding this season for the Chargers and he should be able to have a few more good games before the season closes out. It would have been interesting to see how Eddie Lacy could have run with the threat of Aaron Rodgers on the roster. He has been running well already, but Rodgers has been on the sideline a lot this season with the busted collarbone.

I would love for Allen to get the rookie of the year award. The last time the Chargers won the rookie of the year was with Shawne Merriman in 2005.

    Allen is going to win as long as he has a couple more big games he’s good.

    whats killing allen right now is the lack of td’s compared to lacy. What has helped allen though is the rodgers injury which if you saw the lions game they loaded the box against lacy. Hopefully allen finishes with some big games not only in yards but td’s.

      The TDs should start coming along pretty soon. They seem to come in streaks.

    What’s the real difference between ROY and Offensive ROY? Same thing for MVP and Offensive Player of the year. It seems like to me that the winner for one should be the winner for the other, so what’s the point?
