Betting Outside of Bijan Robinson
Perhaps an even better bet than Robinson is on Tony Pollard, who has +1600 odds to record the most rushing yards in the NFL in 2023.
Tony Pollard has good value at +1600 considering he will be taking over the Dallas Cowboys backfield this season. Despite splitting carries with Ezekiel Elliott in 2022, Pollard rushed for 1,0007 yards on 193 attempts.
Aaron Jones was the only player outside of Tony Pollard to average over 5.2 yards per carry with over 170 rush attempts. Without Ezekiel Elliott’s 231 carries in 2023, Tony Pollard has great value at +1600 to lead the NFL in rushing yards.
Justin Fields (+2000) is the only quarterback with less than +3500 odds, but surprisingly has better odds to lead the NFL in rushing yards than Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Jones, and Kenneth Walker.
No quarterback has ever led the NFL in rushing yards, but Justin Fields has a chance to do so in 2023. Lamar Jackson recorded the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season in 2019 but still didn’t come close to the NFL lead that season.
Fields finished seventh in the NFL in rushing yards in 2022, thanks to his 7.1 yards per carry. Justin Fields finished four rushing yards ahead of Christian McCaffrey on 84 less rushing attempts.
With +200 odds at NFL sportsbooks, Justin Fields to lead the league in rushing yards in 2023 is worth a bet.
