I want to start by saying I will just post the stats of performing rookies, I will not be biased in anyway and I will not give my opion.  However, I want to know everyone's opinion on who they think will win it either based on opinions or stats.  Also, let me know each week if there is a new rookie I should add or drop from the list.

After Week 2: Offensive Rookie of the Year Watch!

James Hardy is fading into the background this season.

Royal is  hurt too much, I have him on my fantasy teams, and was good at the begining of season but not doing much lately.

Strewart is doing ok so far as long he can keep healthy.

Forte is a beast!

 will be better next year but doing ok now.

  is fragile and sucking air this season.

Matt Ryan is very good so far and generaly getting better with each start, he's going to be one the greats.

  is green, maybe next year.

  has a bad case of the drops but gets the yards.  

Tim Hightower is a TD machine but doesn't get the yards.

The rest are just average or hurt.

After Week 2: Offensive Rookie of the Year Watch!

I would have to make a case for DeSean Jackson or Chris Johnson. Both have been surprisingly consistent for rookies. Both have made numerous plays for their teams the last 2 weeks. Outside of Jackson's boneheaded move last Monday, He's been a solid starter and receiving option for Donovan McNabb. Even if the Eagles starting recievers return from injury, Jackson has probably secured the starting spot for the rest of the season. Johnson has stolen the starting job from Lendale White. It looks like Johnson is getting the majority of the snaps. Jonathon Stewart is also making a case for himself. He's also getting most of the snaps but DeAngelo Williams still get a lot of carries. If Darren McFadden gets more playing time and establishes himself, he can take it all because he has the weakest supporting cast out of all of the above.

Nice setup.  I'd like to see special teams impact (i.e. Felix Jones return TD).  I think with Fargas hobbled McFadden ROY stock goes up, but after two weeks dang Felix looks good.  DeSean (barring the bonehead play) has had a nice start to his career (2 100-yard games).  Feel good story has to be Joey Flacco.  You get extra points from me as a rookie QB.  Will be fun to watch, thanks for the post!!
