  49ers | Odell Beckham a trade target for SF?    Mon Feb 18, 11:08 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is believed to be a trade target for the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, according to ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio.

Footballguys view: Beckham just signed his big-money deal with the Giants last year. Any trade for the veteran superstar would likely come with a high price tag just to acquire him.

  Patriots | Pats pursued Odell Beckham during season    Mon Feb 18, 01:25 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sought after by the New England Patriots ahead of the last season's trade deadline, according to NBC's Chris Simms, who reported New England was the team 'most aggressively pursuing' Beckham at that point of time.

Footballguys view: Beckham is rumored to be on the move this offseason. That may or may not happen, but the Giants did just sign him to a long-term deal in 2018. He's got a $21 million cap hit in 2019 and there's a whopping $35 million remaining in dead money on his contract.

  Giants | Odell Beckham staying put    Wed Jan 2, 12:11 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not be traded this offseason, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Footballguys view: "We didn't sign him to trade him," Gettleman said. Beckham made it through only 12 games this year and hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2016. He'll be the centerpiece of the passing attack and gives the Giants a dynamic duo of skill position players with RB Saquon Barkley. Beckham finished 2018 as the no.16 fantasy wide receiver in standard-scoring leagues. If healthy, he's clearly got WR1 ability for Fantasy GMs.

Footballguys view: Sterling Shepard could be a decent play at Indianapolis this week with Russell Shepard also out, and Evan Engram is a top tight end play with Beckham on the bench.

Footballguys view: Beckham hasn't been on the field over the last two games and the Giants have not shut him down for the year.

Footballguys view: Sterling Shepard will be the Giants #1 receiver, but this points to more Saquon Barkley more than any bump in the passing game. Eli Manning falls out of QB2/Superflex consideration on this news.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) did not travel with the team for their Week 14 game and has been ruled out.

Footballguys view: This is massive news for Week 14 matchups and Beckham is getting further tests which could reveal a problem that affects his availability for the rest of the season. Sterling Shepard gets a bump to WR3/FLex value and Evan Engram becomes a better tight end play, but Eli Manning takes a hit as a QB2/Superflex option.

  Giants | Odell Beckham makes history    Tue Oct 23, 04:01 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. exceeded 5,000 receiving yards for his career in the team's Week 7 loss Monday, Oct. 22. He reached that plateau in fewer games (54) than any player since the 1970 merger, surpassing Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, who accomplished the feat in 56 games.

Footballguys view: The Giants passing game has been down this year, but Beckham is still getting it done at a high level. On Monday against the Falcons, Beckham had eight catches for 143 yards and one touchdown. It was his fourth 100-yard game of the season and there should be many more to come.

The New York Giants and head coach Pat Shurmur recently fined WR Odell Beckham Jr. for controversial comments made during an ESPN interview where he questioned QB Eli Manning's ability and his teammates' heart, according to a league source. Shurmur also had Beckham apologize to the club.

Footballguys view: Clearly Beckham is frustrated with his quarterback..and you could see that on Thursday night as Manning struggled to get him the ball on anything but short passes. We'll see if these two can work it out and produce at the expected level. The Giants have a long week to prepare for the Falcons in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Beckham had a revival in Week 5, but his value is in trouble going forward with neither quarterback possibility inspiring confidence. His matchup against Atlanta in Week 7 should help, but he isn't looking likely to return expected value this year.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. holding back?    Thu Sep 27, 09:55 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he has been 'scared to just hit it' at full speed, and he believes his hesitation cost him a 91-yard touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3. 'There was a slant and it cleared out for me,' Beckham said. 'It was perfect, and I kind of slowed down and, I just hesitated a little bit for a second.'

Footballguys view: Beckham had a very serious ankle injury and surgery last year. While he can still separate and make plays on the ball as well as ever, the breakaway speed hasn't shown up yet. This is a sign that it's mental more than physical and big games are coming soon.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with the Giants Monday, Aug. 27, worth $95 million, according to a source. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The guaranteed money is a record for the position. Another record for Beckham is his new average annual salary of $19 million. He is looking to bounce back after an injury-shortened 2017 season, and the team clearly believes he can do just that. This contract situation never turned ugly as Beckham put forth several good faith moves during the offseason. So long as he stays healthy, Beckham is a superstar and no-brainer WR1 for Fantasy GMs.
