Three times during the 2015 season Amari Cooper was voted Pepsi Rookie of the Week. No player had more Rookie of the Week honors than that. Now he joins several other rookie standouts as candidates for the Pepsi Rookie of the Year.

Here are the nominees along with their notable seasons statistics:

Todd Gurley, St. Louis Rams

Gurley finished third in the NFL with 1,106 rushing yards and tied for fifth in the league with 10 rushing touchdowns. Gurley became the second Rams rookie to rush for more than 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders

Cooper led all rookies in receptions (72). He also was the only rookie receiver to notch a 1,000-yard season, posting 1,070 yards.

Marcus Peters, Kansas City Chiefs

Peters tied for the league lead with eight interceptions, and his two interceptions returned for touchdowns also tied for best in the NFL. Peters recorded the most interceptions by a Chiefs rookie in the Super Bowl era, and had more interceptions than the entire Chiefs team had in 2014 (6).

Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Winston threw for 4,042 yards this season, the third-most passing yards for a rookie quarterback in NFL history. With 22 passing touchdowns and six rushing scores, Winston is tied for the third most combined scores by a rookie in league history.

Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

Lockett joined Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers as the only rookies in NFL history with six or more receiving touchdowns, one or more kickoff return touchdowns and one or more punt return touchdowns.
