Baker Mayfield among favorites to win Comeback Player of the Year

Three players Sooners are among the favorites to win the National Football League’s comeback player of the year.

Baker Mayfield, Joe Mixon, Trent Williams are among the favorites, according to BetMGM, a New Jersey-based Sportsbook.


Mayfield (25-1) leads the way with the best odds among the three Sooners after a disappointing sophomore season in the league. Last season, Mayfield threw 3,827 yards, 22 touchdowns (-5 prev. season), 21 INTs (+7) at 59.4 completion percentage.

Mixon (50-1) looks to overcome a disappointing 2019 season with first-year Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zach Taylor. In 15 starts, Mixon reached the end zone only five occasions, averaging 4.1 yards-per-carry after a career-high 4.9 in 2018.

After holding out, last season, Williams (80-1) joins San Francisco 49ers, Super Bowl runner-ups, after ending a nine-season tenure in Washington.

Tampa Bay tight end Rob Gronkowski and Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have the best odds at 4-1.
