Summary

Odell Beckham is unquestionably one of the best receivers in the league, yet somehow Giants fans and NFL pundits fail to embrace him because of a mix of maturity concerns and diva-like behavior. Rumors of his being on the trading block persisted in the spring, but nothing came of the chatter. Through three seasons, Beckham trailed only Randy Moss with 4,122 receiving yards and also ranks #2 behind Jarvis Landry with 288 receptions. His 35 receiving touchdowns in his first three seasons rank him 5th. Last year things didn't go as planned; Beckham suffered a gruesome ankle injury against the Chargers and missed the majority of the season. The silver lining is Beckham sustained the injury in early October, and he's participated in minicamps. Beckham is on the final year of his rookie contract, but ownership has promised a new deal; as long as an extension is in place before the preseason, the drama should subside. New head coach Pat Shurmur will call plays this season which bodes well for an improved offense. Shurmur took Case Keenum and turned him into a world-beater, and made both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs stars. Beckham is better than either, by a country mile. With Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard, and Saquon Barkley in tow, Beckham may take a slight step back statistically, but should still vie with Antonio Brown and DeAndre Hopkins for top honors at the position.

Odell Beckham May Not Be What Fantasy Football Owners Expect in 2018

Latest News

Giants | Odell Beckham not close to deal (Sat Jun 16, 03:45 PM) - New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has not made progress in contract extension talks with the Giants, and no deal is imminent at this point, according to sources.

Our View: Beckham has been showing up to the facility in a good faith move to show the team he wants to be there. The team won't get a deal done until there's a deadline. Beckham says he'll show up for training camp, but he could change his tune in order to gain leverage on the Giants. Whenever he gets his deal, Beckham should become the league's highest paid wide receiver.

Giants | Odell Beckham to report on time (Sat Jun 16, 01:17 PM) - New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he plans to report to training camp on time and will not be holding out because of his contract situation.

Our View: Beckham has been showing good faith towards the Giants this entire offseason. He wants a new deal, and he could become the highest paid WR in the league...although reports from Giants beat writers indicate the two sides are not even close in negotiations. Beckham is recovering from the ankle injury that shortened his 2017 season and should be back to his top-5 WR ways for fantasy owners in 2018.

Giants | Odell Beckham update (Tue Jun 12, 11:03 AM) - Updating an earlier report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) preferred to avoid team repetitions, but there was hope he could participate in some during minicamp. There was discussion Monday, June 11, about announcing medical clearance for him.

Our View: Beckham wants a long-term deal with the Giants, so he's not going to risk things in a June minicamp. He's doing individual work and skipping team drills as a precaution.

Giants | Odell Beckham easing in (Tue Jun 12, 08:55 AM) - New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) won't receive team repetitions this week as caution is used this spring. The team and his doctors are on the same page.

Giants | Odell Beckham reports for physical (Mon Jun 11, 01:16 PM) - Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. reported to the team facility Monday, June 11, for his physical, according to a source.

Our View: His participation level is unknown at this time. Beckham had his 2017 season cut short due to an ankle injury, and there's no reason for him to push it at this point in the offseason. He's showed up at voluntary OTAs as a good faith move since he wants a new deal. Beckham is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2018.
