Week 16 was a wild week in the NFL as a lot of key rookies had some big games for their respective teams. As we come down to the wire on the season with two weeks left, rookies will look to make their final impressions on the regular season.
Honorable Mentions: Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts (6 rec, 102 yards), Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St Brown (9 rec, 91 yards, 1 TD), New York Jets QB Zach Wilson (102 pass yards, 1 TD, 91 rush yards, 1 TD)
3. WR Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals exploded on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and Chase was a big part of Joe Burrow’s historical performance. Chase ended Sunday’s contest with seven receptions for 125 yards in a very productive game for the frontrunner in the Offensive Rookie of the Year race.
2. WR Jaylen Waddle, Miami Dolphins
Waddle is really starting to find his place in the Miami Dolphins offense proving to be a reliable target. He logged 10 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown on Monday night against the New Orleans Saints. Waddle is now only six receptions away from the single season rookie record in regards to receptions.
1. QB Davis Mills, Houston Texans
Mills picked up a huge win over the heavily-favored Los Angeles Chargers. He threw for 254 yards and two touchdowns. Mills has looked very solid over the past couple of weeks and he has posed the question as to whether the Houston Texans should draft a quarterback in the next draft.
