2021 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award Leading Players

Dak Prescott is the clear-cut front runner for the Comeback Player of the Year award entering Week 5.

He is coming off a gruesome looking ankle injury that took a lot of time to recover and get back on his own feet.

This season he has seemingly picked up right where he left on and even has an opportunity to win the MVP award if he can keep on leading his team to wins.

Dallas is 3-1 on the year and Prescott has been a tremendous part of that.

This Cowboys offense looks way better than it has the last couple of years and Dak is using those weapons he has to rip apart opposing defenses.

Obviously, stats and win percentages play a big part in these awards but Prescott has both right now.

Not to mention, this award takes big account into overall media hype and the eye test.

Prescott hasn’t had any type of accuracy issues and just recently he threw four touchdown passes against the Panthers in what turned out to be a fourth quarter blowout.

Dak even went toe to toe with Tom Brady and the reigning Super Bowl champions in his first game back from this terrible injury and would have won the game if it weren’t for a last second field goal by Tampa Bay.

Unless anything completely changes in the coming weeks, I literally can’t see anybody else winning this award except for Prescott.

The only way it would be possible is if he completely falls off stat wise and the team plummets down the rankings.

Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow is second on the list for Comeback Player of the Year

Joe Burrow is second on the list for Comeback Player of the Year.

Burrow went through a brutal knee injury where he basically tore every ligament that he had down there.

It took him a long time to recover like Prescott but he returned for Week 1 of this season and hasn’t let anybody down.

In fact, he actually looks way better than last year.

The Cincinnati Bengals are currently 3-1 on the season with Burrow having flashes of greatness on the field. Just last weekend, he threw for 350 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 14-point comeback victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

This Bengals team was expected to be pretty bad in the offseason and Burrow was going to just take his time to get back into the groove of things.

The opposite seems to be happening right now. As long as the offensive line can keep him standing throughout the entire year, Burrow could rival Prescott’s statistics and at least make it a pretty close vote.

Sam Darnold

Comeback Player of the Year award Sam Darnold

Sam Darnold is third here.

Darnold isn’t coming off of some major injury like the other two guys on this list are but he is coming off of a horrible season at quarterback.

He was working with the New York Jets and infamous head coach Adam Gase, a nightmarish position for any young signal caller to be in.

That year he threw for only 2,208 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 12 total games.

It was horrible to watch.

Now he got himself a fresh start with Matt Rhule and Joe Brady on the Carolina Panthers and he’s making the most of it.

He gets to play with an absolute boatload of offensive weapons and a solid offensive line.

Christian McCaffrey always makes his quarterbacks job easier with his receiving ability and D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson provide a great one-two punch at the wideout positions.

Darnold has led his Panthers to a 3-1 start on the year and in doing so he actually leads the league in rushing touchdowns with five.

I have already been seeing people compare the season he is having to the first one that Cam Newton had when he was first starting off with the Panthers.

Who knows, maybe Darnold could morph into the player that we all remember Cam to be during that incredible Super Bowl run!

Carson Wentz

Comeback Player of the Year award Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz is on this list as well but is admittedly pretty far down right now.

Like Darnold, he isn’t coming off of some major injury, but he is coming off a horrible year.

He completed just 57 percent of his passes while scoring 16 touchdowns to 15 interceptions before the Philadelphia Eagles decided to bench him after 12 games.

Wentz is now reunited with the man who somehow pulled an MVP caliber season out of Wentz, the year that they eventually went on to win the Super Bowl.

Carson hasn’t started off great with the Indianapolis Colts this year but the potential is definitely still there.

He is missing some targets in the pass game but has help with a solid defense and a great backfield that consists of Marlon Mack, Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines.

I don’t expect Carson to end up winning this award but he could get pretty close if the Colts become a powerhouse.

Though their 1-3 record doesn’t really indicate that.

Odell Beckham Jr

Comeback Player of the Year award Odell Beckham Jr

Now we have a non-quarterback option. Quarterbacks win this award over 50 percent of the time but Odell Beckham Jr may be the one to flip this percentage in his favor.

It appears the NFL world has completely given up hope that Odell can still be an All-Pro receiver in this league, which is absolutely preposterous.

He hasn’t been the type of player that we saw while he was with the New York Giants, but he has since dealt with inconsistent quarterback play and a serious knee injury.

So far, he hasn’t done anything spectacular in his return to the field but he has gotten himself open on a number of occasions.

Baker Mayfield overthrew him a few times in their most recent game against the Minnesota Vikings on what would have been a surefire touchdown reception.

We all know the Cleveland Browns are going to have a strong record to get Odell at least in the conversation for this award.

All he has to do is get himself some touchdowns and a lot of receptions to prove that he is still the explosive wideout that we have all grown to love.
