2016 Week 18 vs GB (11 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Beckham jr. was ineffective on Sunday night and left many plays on the field. He had a tough night with several key passes targeted at him that were dropped. He first dropped a short out pattern that should have resulted in a first down, though the Giants ultimately picked it up regardless. Beckham then had a shot at a fade pattern in the back of endzone, getting good separation from his corner but couldn't come up with the ball over the shoulder. He was open again on a deep out pattern and Manning perhaps threw the ball a little high, which led to another poor incompletion. Beckham was double covered by Greenbay for a lot of the game and they were determined to limit his impact. Manning could not connect with him down the field and this really hampered the Giants offense to score points. Beckham got a few first downs with short passes over the middle but these never amounted to big plays.
2016 Week 17 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
Beckham jr. was kept in check for most of this game as the Giants wanted to escape this game without any injuries and have a strong running game present to take pressure off the passing game. Beckham was covered by Norman for the most part and got open at times but the Giants simply weren't that interested in throwing the ball. Beckham got open on deep in breaking patterns/crossing routes and used his speed in man to man coverage to create separation. Manning used him consistently on third down to move the chains and Beckham often had room to work with in his routes as the defense had to respect his speed to go deep. The Giants had the lead for most of this game and Beckham got to show off his skills in run blocking a lot but rarely got any exciting targets. Manning hardly threw any passes downfield and the Giants did not get into the redzone often. The Giants would have likely gotten more production from Beckham had the result mattered but were content to escape this game with a win, no matter how average the offense looked.
2016 Week 16 vs PHI (20 / 11 / 150 / 0 rec)
Beckham jr. wasn't able to score on Thursday but was instrumental in keeping the Giants in this game. Beckham jr. looked dangerous everytime he touched the football and the Giants were intent on throwing him passes throughout the game to keep the Eagles worried. Manning somewhat struggled to find him early in this game but eventually the duo connected on a well thrown lofty bomb down the sideline. Beckham jr. then began to dominate over the middle of the field and picked up many big first downs on curls/in breaking patterns to take advantage of one on one coverage. His speed and quickness at the line of scrimmage is often too much for a defense to contain for the entire game. He turned a short slant outside pattern into a massive yards-after-catch gain as he outran several Eagle defenders along the sideline. Beckham jr. had a shot at a touchdown late in this game on a fade pattern but the pass was slightly overthrown from Manning and it fell incomplete.
2016 Week 15 vs DET (8 / 6 / 64 / 1 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Odell Beckham jr. got away with a dropped pass that somehow was not ruled incomplete on the first possession but it was for minimal yards and he quickly moved past this. Beckham looked very dangerous anytime he got the ball in space and turned several slant patterns into big gains with yards after the catch. His electric speed demands attention and he can take any play to the house, which makes him a must play in fantasy. He worked well with Manning to convert third downs into first, clutching curl/in breaking/slant routes that were crucial to the Giants offense. Beckham was open on a corner route towards the sideline despite double coverage and snagged a big first down with a perfect over the shoulder pass from Manning to set up his touchdown. Beckham got a clean release at the line of scrimmage and was wide open on an out route in the redzone. He had to grab it one handed as it was slightly off target but he made the catch look routine and walked into the endzone untouched. Beckham deserves to be started each and every week, regardless of match up and can be trusted every week as the Giants love to get him the ball.
2016 Week 14 vs DAL (9 / 4 / 94 / 1 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. was the star of this game but he actually didn't play very well for some of this game. Beckham struggled to make any kind of impact on the game early and had several big drops that could have resulted in touchdowns. He was open down the field on a fade pattern in Cowboy territory but misjudged the ball in the air and it fell incomplete. Beckham later dropped a curl route that would have likely secured a first down to set up the Giants in the redzone. He still converted some key situations with deep in breaking routes, beating his man inside but the Giants pass protection inevitably hurt his production. We all know Beckham has the potential to take any ball to the endzone on any play however and eventually we saw this. The Giants took advantage of single high safety by the Cowboys and fired a short crossing pattern to Beckham over the middle. He simply outran the entire Cowboy defense down the sideline with amazing speed as it looked like the Cowboys were in decent position to tackle him at one point. It wasn't pretty but Sunday night showed why he's a fantasy stud, even in a low scoring affair.
2016 Week 13 vs PIT (16 / 10 / 100 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. was the only consistent weapon the Giants had on Sunday but he wasn't able to will his team to victory on this occasion. The Giants forced the ball to Beckham a lot in the second half, despite close coverage and this led to a lot of incomplete passes. The Steelers kept a close eye on him and never let him get behind the defense. Beckham ran mostly slant/dig/in breaking patterns that tried to take advantage of man coverage with his quickness/speed. He looked for flags on several pass break ups by the defense but got very few calls from the officials. Beckham was a crucial cog for the Giants that allowed them to move the ball at all. The pass protection his quarterback received was lacklustre and this definitely hurt the production of every fantasy player. He did his job well and caught most of the balls thrown his way but Manning was off a lot of in this game and the Giants could never put their best foot forward.
2016 Week 12 vs CLE (11 / 6 / 96 / 2 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. had a very strong performance in this game and made the difference in this contest. He was explosive, had solid hands and had a great rapport with his quarterback. Beckham jr. was open early in the game on a streak pattern and then again on a seam route but Manning was off the mark on both throws. He showed good chemistry with his QB on a rollout however, getting open on the outside for a first down and diving for a low football. Beckham jr's first touchdown was quite spectacular and displayed his pure speed. He caught a short crossing pattern over the middle and simply outran the entire defense along the sideline to burst into the endzone untouched. The Browns secondary did not look like they could catch Beckham if he made it into the open field, as most defenses struggle with his speed. He snagged another ball on a high pass over the middle and turned this into another big play down the field with great yards after the catch but was tackled short of the endzone this game. Beckham jr. ended up scoring anyway as the Giants took advantage of him vs a linebacker in coverage on a crossing pattern in the redzone.
2016 Week 11 vs CHI (7 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. had somewhat of a down week as the Giants stumbled their way offensively to 22 points. He was still able to pick up key first downs over the middle and Manning looked his way often when a conversion was needed. Beckham jr. was taken down 1 yard shy of the first down marker on a few occasions, which hurt the Giants offensive and was somewhat unfortunate. He displayed typical quickness and talent as he looked wide open on many of his catches, including a comeback play deep to the outside in the opponent's redzone. Beckham jr. almost lost the ball on a catch to the outside but was fortunate that the ball landed out of bounds shortly after he lost control. Manning spread the ball very evenly amongst his team and never got too focused into forcing balls to Beckham jr.
2016 Week 10 vs CIN (11 / 10 / 97 / 1 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. was a strong player on Monday night and contributed a lot to the Giants win. He got open several times on slant plays and quick in breaking routes over the middle which he typically has great success with. Beckham also showed nice chemistry with Manning on some plays that broke down and including his touchdown catch. He ran a hook and go pattern in the redzone and was wide open in the back of the endzone for Manning to fire an easy looking touchdown pass. Beckham was crucial at picking up first downs for the Giants when they needed it by deep in patterns against man coverage, using his quickness to get open. He has solid hands throughout the game and caught the ball cleanly. On one occasion Manning fired a pass too high for Beckham down the field but this fell incomplete. Overall Beckham wasn't as explosive as he can be but proved vital with his touchdown catch and had several clutch first down conversions over the middle.
2016 Week 9 vs PHI (10 / 4 / 46 / 2 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. didn't have gaudy receiving numbers like he typically can get but did secure two big touchdowns. Beckham's first score was a slant inside after play action. He beat his man inside to the ball and took advantage of poor positioning by the safety to scarper into the endzone untouched. Beckham scored again on a high quick ball to the endzone that was thrown near the goal line. He got behind his man straight away and went up high before securing two feet in bounds for a perfectly executed goal line pass. He got open again as he broke free down the sideline but Manning overthrow him by a few yards to deny a third touchdown opportunity. Beckham worked the middle a lot with slant plays as he typically does but had mixed results. He had an accurate ball batted into the air after he failed to secure it and had another pass wrestled away by the defender for the turnover. Despite this, fantasy owners will be pleased with 2 touchdowns and easily could have been a third with a better deep ball from Manning.
2016 Week 7 vs LA (9 / 5 / 49 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. had a relatively quiet day on Sunday but did come up with clutch plays when required to help the Giants. Beckham secured a nice first down early in the game on a slant pattern, going low to scoop the ball for the reception. He helped the Giants convert a first down while they were backed into their own endzone as he went up high for a sideline grab that was somewhat awkward to catch. Manning showed confidence in Beckham as he threw a high ball up late down the field into double coverage that Beckham was able to come away with. He caught it at its highest point and denied the Rams secondary any access to the ball. Beckham didn't accomplish much else however as the Giants failed to ever get rolling in this game. The Rams shut down their offense for the most part and limited any explosive plays.
2016 Week 6 vs BAL (10 / 8 / 222 / 2 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. had an epic performance in the second half that won't be forgotten anytime soon. He had humble beginnings early on however as he fumbled away his very first catch, getting out wrestled for the ball. The rest of the first half was quiet for Beckham as Manning was unable to hook up with him and he caught mostly short passes. Beckham began to warm up in the second half as he looked dangerous anytime he had the ball in his hands. He turned his defensive back completely around on a double move down the sideline and Manning floated a perfect pass over the top for the score. Beckham then beat his man again off the line of scrimmage with impressive speed and hauled in a nice pass from Manning along the sideline. Beckham jr's final catch showcased the incredible talent this receiver possesses. He caught a simple slant pattern inside from Manning on 4th and 1 but proceeded to run away from all defenders and was untouched as he raced into the endzone. Beckham's speed was unmatched by anyone on the defense and no single defender for the Ravens could hope to keep pace with him.
2016 Week 5 vs GB (12 / 5 / 56 / 1 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. played relatively well considering the media chaos of the previous week and managed to score the only touchdown for the Giants. He was the only somewhat consistent target for Manning as he caught slants/in breaking patterns against man coverage using his speed. He also had a big first down negated by a hold from his offensive line. Beckham jr. was open running down the sideline in the first half but Manning's pass was too high. The only true highlight for the Giants on Sunday night was his touchdown catch. Manning threw a high ball into the very back of the endzone and Beckham jr. secured it perfectly while keeping his feet just in bounds for the score. The play was reviewed and was close to call but the decision was not overturned. Beckham jr.'s ability has never been in question, simply his concentration and focus in big moments has let him down. He looked wide open at times against the Packers and easily could have had a bigger game if his quarterback/offensive line combo was more effective. The past 2 games have been difficult places to play in and fantasy owners will be optimistic the Giants offense can bounce back at home.
2016 Week 4 vs MIN (9 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. underperformed on Monday night but the whole offensive struggled mightily which further damaged his fantasy production. Manning and co. were not able to consistently stay on the field and rarely entered the redzone, a bad sign for an offense. Beckham jr. got a slant catch early in the game but was subsequently flagged for taunting and had to be well behaved for the most of the game for fear of possibly getting ejected. He was targeted on many other passes in the game but a lot of balls ended up incomplete. He had the ball wrestled away from him on a high curl route pass and dropped a ball on an out pattern. Manning tried to connect with his young star receiver deep on several occasions but the pair looked out of sync. Beckham jr. was open deep on a streak pattern but could only get one hand on the ball that was thrown to him and it ended up incomplete as he went to the ground. He was also partly responsible for an interception as there was massive miscommunication with Manning vs a blitz. Beckham jr. didn't play particularly well in this game overall and didn't seem focused as he failed to deliver any big plays when targeted.
2016 Week 3 vs WAS (11 / 7 / 121 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham had a big day but was held out of the end zone for the third consecutive game this year. However, Eli completely missed Odell on what would have been a touchdown in the third quarter if he seen him deep down field. Odell had seven catches on the day and he often made the most of them. Over half of his catches resulted in first downs and his longest of the day was twenty six yards. Odell could have had a bigger day as he was open on several other occasions but Eli was looking elsewhere. Odell often beat coverage to find openings in the defense but was unsuccessful finding the end zone. He came close on a throw in the flat when he eluded the cornerback to race down the sideline but barely got caught from behind. He landed at the three yard line.
2016 Week 2 vs NO (11 / 8 / 86 / 0 rec)
Beckham jr. was crucial to the Giants passing attack on Sunday despite his numbers being relatively tame. Beckham jr. forced several Saints defenders to foul him for deep pass interference calls that set up the Giants well. His quickness and threat as a downfield weapon was evident all game long as defenders gave him a sizeable cushion to work with at the line of scrimmage. Beckham jr. took advantage of this all game long as he picked up first downs on curls/slants/posts and in breaking routes with excellent route running. Beckham jr. achieved massive levels of separation from his defender often and gave Manning an easy window to throw into. Beckham jr. was crucial in moving the chains and a high level of chemistry with Manning could be seen. Manning rolled out of the pocket several times to find that Beckham jr. was working with him to get open. Unfortunately for Beckham jr. and fantasy owners, he had a surprisingly poor drop on the final drive that kept him without a touchdown. Manning found Beckham jr. down the field on a fade route and floated a pass perfectly in front but Beckham jr. simply dropped it as he was trying to secure it. Rookie receiver Shepard has worked his way up and is taking a lot of the pressure off of Beckham jr. which freed him up for several one on one isolation patterns.
2016 Week 1 vs DAL (8 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Odell Beckham jr. didn't have an amazing stat line by any means but his presence was felt all night long. Beckham was targeted more often than his receptions would indicate but the production fantasy owners wanted was just not there on this day. Beckham jr. was open on a crossing pattern early but Manning misfired too high with a pass. Beckham jr. made a terrific catch&run down the sideline on a fade route, getting a step on his man from the very start of the play while securing a perfect pass in stride from Manning. Beckham jr. then was wide open on a curl route, aided by the fact that defenders had to respect his ability as a deep threat. Beckham jr. got a holding call as he was trying to go deep again against Dallas. Beckham jr. was able to gain massive separation when the Giants offensive line gave Manning enough time to survey the field and a big first down was picked up on a deep in breaking pattern. Beckham jr. should have got a touchdown late in the game on an out pattern from Manning in the redzone. Beckham was open after his break outside but the pass from Manning was too high which allowed the defender to push him out of bounds before he could secure two feet. Beckham jr. is as dangerous as ever but luck didn't go his way on this day. His speed and excellent hands will pay dividends for fantasy owners as the season progresses.
