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:

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.
