During the past three years, Odell Beckham Jr. has burst onto the scene as one of the top wide receivers in the NFL. Last season, he played all 16 games and finished with career high 101 receptions for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. Beckham has produced at least 1,300 yards to go along with double-digit touchdowns in each of his first three seasons. The three-time pro bowler is also the fastest player in NFL history to reach 200 receptions in only 30 games. To put it simply, Beckham is the engine that drives the Giants offense. He is one of the few players in the NFL that can single handily win or lose a week for your fantasy team.
The Giants signed Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall to a two-year, $12 million deal during the offseason. Marshall will provide the Giants with another receiving weapon while helping to alleviate some of the defense attention from Beckham The Giants also drafted TE Evan Engram at pick 23 in the first round of the NFL draft.
Second-year head coach, Ben McAdoo is starting to assemble a high-octane offense with the potential to rival anyone else in the NFL. But the question remains, what would happen if Odell Beckham Jr. was to suffer a season ending injury?
Brandon Marshall, WR – Odell Beckham accounted for 169 targets last season, second most in the NFL. If Beckham is lost for the season, the bulk of those targets are headed to newly acquired wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who is no stranger to volume with eight seasons of at least 140 targets. His value will increase from that of a WR3/flex option to that of a high WR2 and low end WR1 in PPR leagues.
