Beckham left the Week 5 game with a broken ankle. He's out for the season.

Week 11: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. It's weird to say, but Eli Manning over these next few games is likely fighting for his career as the Giants are likely to take a quarterback with their early draft pick and while some of the members of this team have given up, Manning has not as he was fighting until the end last week. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram have become the two-headed monster on this team as both players are having breakout seasons filling the void created with Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury. The Chiefs secondary outside of Marcus Peters has been atrocious this season. They are averaging 259 yards per game which is the fifth-worst in the NFL on the year. Kenneth Acker and Steven Nelson have both been horrendous this season as they replaced Terrance Mitchell and Phillip Gaines. The secondary does not get much better at the safety position as Ron Parker and Daniel Sorensen have both struggled this season. On the season Kansas City has allowed 1.7 touchdowns per game to opposing wide receivers which is by far the worst in the NFL as the next closest team has allowed 1.3 touchdowns per game. The one thing to note here is that Andy Reid is 16-2 coming off the bye in his career, which is the best of all time, so it would not be surprising if some of these issues got fixed this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs LAC (8 / 5 / 97 / 1 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)

Odell Beckham had an excellent performance on Sunday that unfortunately ended in total misery for the superstar receiver. Beckham and Manning were testing the Chargers deep throughout the game but struggled to connect initially. He was wide open in the endzone but the pass from Manning was overthrown, it easily could have been a touchdown with a better ball. Beckham was electric in open space with the ball in his hands, and he got many short balls/sweep plays to assist this. He was crucial in moving the chains as he converted many downs with curl/comeback plays on the outside. The defensive back was cautious against Beckham, giving him room to avoid a big play down the field. Beckham completely fooled the corner on an out & up route, faking inside before becoming completely wide open down the field as Manning found him for the big score. Beckham sustained another injury to his lower body on a slant play and will likely miss many weeks, if not the entire rest of the season.

2017 Week 4 vs TB (15 / 7 / 90 / 0 rec)

Odell Beckham got his hands on 7 passes vs the Bucs but should have had more. Beckham dropped a few passes on short balls that really should have been caught, despite the wet conditions. Beckham and Manning tried to connect deep down the field throughout the game but struggled for the most part. He did draw a pass interference call one time but Manning overthrew him on a streak pattern on another occasion. Beckham was tough to tackle when he did catch the ball however. He made men miss at times and got a lot of yards after the catch as he broke back across the field, using his spin move to evade the first tackle attempt. He worked back towards the ball for Manning and did a good job securing tightly contested throws on the outside. Beckham broke free on an in&up play in the second half, getting a step on the safety as Manning floated a perfect pass over the top for 42 yards. Beckham did manage to catch a 2 point conversion later in the game but he was ruled ineligible as he stepped out of bounds prior. Despite the pedestrian numbers, he looked as explosive as ever despite the nagging ankle injury. Remains a must play.

2017 Week 3 vs PHI (13 / 9 / 79 / 2 rec)

Odell Beckham Jr. had a very strong performance on Sunday. He looks like he is 100% again as his speed was on display in a big way against the Eagles. Beckham got a lot of slant plays/in breaking patterns to take advantage of soft coverage by the secondary but gradually worked his way down the field as the game progressed. He made several incredible catches, including many off target throws that were placed behind him. Beckham got into the endzone twice and both plays really were very impressive. He was forced to wait on a slow ball in the back of the endzone deep down the field but managed to keep both feet in perfectly before being shoved out of the endzone. Beckham's second touchdown came on a one handed grab on a corner route, managing to secure the ball while a defender was right behind him in the corner of the endzone. His night was not over at this point as the Manning targeted Beckham deep on back to back plays. Beckham was flagged for pass interference on the first play but broke free on the next play and the Eagle defensive back had no choice but to clearly foul him in play. Beckham is back and if the Giants offense can continue to play like they did on Sunday, fantasy owners will breath a sigh of relief for sure.

2017 Week 2 vs DET (5 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)

The return of Odell Beckham Jr. to the field would have been a welcome sight for the Giants faithful, but the receiver was clearly not there yet. Beckham Jr. rotated with Roger Lewis and the superstar pass catcher only came into the game in certain key situations. For Beckham Jr., this felt more like a 'test the waters' outing than a full-go game. He and Eli Manning connected well on some timing routes, but none were more than 10 yards down the field. It was encouraging to see him involved in the offense, but his role was ultimately limited.
