Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders (10-1)

Maybe "Hard Knocks" hype for the Raiders will drive this price into the ground, but for now, the Oakland rookie's odds are simply too cheap to ignore as a potential bell-cow back.

Jon Gruden has historically committed to the run game, and Jacobs' competition is uninspiring. That could mean gaudy numbers for the Alabama product, who averaged 6.3 yards with 14 touchdowns on just 140 touches in 2018.

Three of the last four offensive winners have been running backs, including Saquon Barkley, who beat out Baker Mayfield's savior season in 2018. Jacobs might not be Barkley, but Murray will be hard-pressed to match Mayfield's rookie year, too. If anyone can usurp Murray, it's Jacobs.

Darrell Henderson, RB, Rams (20-1)

Call it a hype train if you want, but it's hard to deny Henderson's elite upside and opportunity in this Rams offense. Todd Gurley's health is a legitimate concern, and L.A. invested high draft capital in Henderson - who will see plenty of work even if Gurley plays, too.

The Memphis dynamo looked comfortable in the passing game in Saturday's preseason affair and has the natural burst and decisiveness to excel as a rusher in Sean McVay's offense.

If Gurley were to miss time, Henderson's a versatile, dynamic back in one of the best offenses in football. You wouldn't want that at 20-1?

Terry McLaurin, WR, Redskins (100-1)

At long-shot odds, why not take a chance on the speedy Redskins receiver? The third-rounder has impressed in his first offseason in Washington with his burst and route-running, including this nasty route that turned heads (including the defender's) in practice:

McLaurin could find his way to the top of the depth chart soon with the dearth of talent in Washington. He also has a connection with former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who will surely find the field in 2019 and could look McLaurin's way often as he seeks to get comfortable under center.

Backing a WR can be a risky bet with this award. At 100-1? It's legitimate value.
