Giants | Odell Beckham hits century mark

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:59:24 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted 10 receptions for 100 yards in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted a game-high 16 times.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham won the statistical battle against friend Antonio Brown, but his pal ended up with a touchdown and a victory. Beckham will look for another big stat performance in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys in a primetime game.

Giants | ODB interested in return game

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 22:53:39 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is eager to try his hand at punt returns going forward. With WR Dwayne Harris (wrist) injured, and RB Bobby Rainey benched for fumbling, Beckham had a taste of the return game in the second half in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns. "It's a lot of fun. It's something that I do enjoy. Hopefully I can help this team out that way or whatever way I can," Beckham said Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners, of course, hate the idea, unless you're a fantasy owner of the Giants DST or in a format which rewards individuals for return yardage. In most standard leagues, there is no benefit to return yardage, but an added risk for injury.

Giants | Odell Beckham off injury report

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 21:19:50 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (thumb) did not appear on the team's injury report Wednesday, Nov. 30. Beckham said the thumb does not bother him until something hits into it. He said the injury might help him. "I have to focus more on catching the ball. I have to really lock in and focus on where I'm placing my hands," Beckham said.

Fantasy Tip: ODB is a must-start fantasy play in any format, and it appears he will play through this nagging injury. If it isn't big enough to keep him from practicing or playing, it certainly isn't something for fantasy owners to be terribly concerned about.

Giants | Odell Beckham back on the field

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 10:42:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (thumb) has returned to team's Week 12 game after missing some time because of a thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham's injury does not appear to be serious, but owners should look for any updates on his status after the game or in the next game or two. Beckham is a No. 1 receiver in all leagues when healthy.

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 10:40:30 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (thumb) went to the locker room during the team's Week 12 game because of a thumb injury. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Beckham will be able to return to the game. Beckham is a must-start option when healthy but a thumb injury likely would affect his ability to catch passes.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. finished with 10 receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 14. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham had a strong first half, but he was limited to two grabs for 18 yards on three targets. Still, fantasy owners cannot complain too vehemently. He'll face the Chicago Bears in Week 11.

Giants | More slot work for Odell Beckham Jr.?

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 10:27:14 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. spent just seven percent of his time in the slot prior to his team's Week 8 bye after playing 19 percent of the offensive snaps there last year. In an effort to prevent double teams against him going forward, the Giants are considering giving him more time inside.

Fantasy Tip: It is much harder for defenses to double slot receivers for a multitude of reasons, but New York's unwillingness to have OBJ work inside more often during the first half of the season probably wasn't the team's biggest problem. Owners of Sterling Shepard - the usual slot receiver - need not panic as the rookie can play outside, plus the Giants are predominantly a three-receiver offense. Beckham remains a WR1 despite the offense's woes thus far, albeit one with a lower floor than his first two seasons.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. not on injury report

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 12:39:35 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) is absent from the team's Week 9 injury report and is expected to play versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Save for an explosive second half against a shorthanded Baltimore Ravens secondary, OBJ has been sabotaged by Eli Manning's inconsistent play and the failings of the Giants' offensive line. Beckham remains a WR1 regardless, but owners hoping for him to recreate his first two seasons may be disappointed again this week. The Eagles have shown an ability to rush the passer and keep opposing receivers out of the end zone, surrendering only four touchdowns to the position this season.
