There are only two weeks left in the NFL season, but the Offensive Rookie of the Year race only heated up in Week 15.
Though Detroit Lions right guard Larry Warford has been as good as any rookie in the NFL this year, the top two candidates for the award are likely to be San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen and Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy. Both came up with big performances in Week 15—Allen had two receiving touchdowns, while Lacy had 171 yards from scrimmage—as each led their teams to major victories that kept each team alive in their respective playoff races.
The Defensive Rookie of the Year race may be getting more one-sided by the week, but as the season nears its close, there are still many rookies to watch for in the Bleacher Report Rookie Rankings as the top first-year players look to close out their strong seasons on high notes.
