Jones threw for 336 yards, rushed for 28 more and accounted for four total touchdowns in a 32-31 come-from-behind victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
The controversial No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Jones is now the favorite by DraftKings to take home OROY honors at +200. He leapfrogged Arizona Cardinals quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Kyle Murray (+350), with Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown at +600.
Jones was being offered at +1000 by DraftKings before making his first NFL start.
Another rising candidate is Jacksonville Jaguars sixth-round quarterback Gardner Minshew, who is being offered at +800 along with Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs.
FanDuel and PointsBet are still giving a slight nod to Murray (+220 and +250, respectfully) over Jones (+260, +300). FanDuel also has much lower odds on Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery at +600 than DraftKings (+1400) or PointsBet (+1600).
Murray leads all rookies and is 10th in the NFL with 830 passing yards. He has thrown four touchdowns against three interceptions and a 79.0 passer rating, but has yet to lead the Cardinals (0-2-1) to a victory.
