The folks over at BetOnline.ag just released a trio of their odds for 2020 NFL season stats leaders which include Defensive Player of the Year, most passing yards during the regular season, and most receiving yards during the regular season.

Defensive end Joey Bosa and safety Derwin James headline the Chargers list of inclusions as both are tied with 20/1 odds for bring home DPoY, tied for seventh-best odds with the Broncos’ Von Miller. Outside linebacker Melvin Ingram is a bit lower on the list as he’s tied with seven other players with 66/1 odds. The RamsAaron Donald was given the best chances at the award with 7/1 odds while Joey’s little brother Nick is second at 9/1.

For regular season passing yards, quarterback Tyrod Taylor - should he stay the starter after the draft - is tied with Washington’s Dwayne Haskins for the lowest odds at 150/1. If the Chargers were to select a quarterback later this month, be it Tua Tagovailoa or Justin Herbert, I would assume the odds for them would be better than Taylor’s.

Finally, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams both made the opening list for regular season receiving yards. Allen is tied with the ColtsT.Y. Hilton and the LionsKenny Golladay with 18/1 odds, good for eighth. Williams is tied with a host of receivers at the bottom with 50/1 odds.
