Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams - $7700

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Browns passing offense while statistically looked great on Monday Night struggled for a large majority of this game. Baker Mayfield was under constant duress as he was sacked three times and held onto the ball for far too long as the Jets defense confused him from time to time. Odell Beckham continues to show why he is one of the top receivers in the NFL as he broke an 89-yard touchdown on a quick slant that greatly inflated the Browns passing numbers as well as a tremendous one-handed catch in the first quarter along the sidelines. The Browns got some good news with Rashard Higgins returning to practice after missing the game against the Jets but will be without tight end David Njoku who suffered a broken wrist. The offensive line continues to be an issue for the Browns as Greg Robinson is not playing at nearly the level that he did last season after being ejected in Week 1 and Kendall Lamm remains doubtful for this game with a knee injury. This is a unit that is going to rely on their offensive line play to throw the deep passes and going up against Aaron Donald and crew will be a major test for the Browns this week. The Rams defensive line thoroughly dominated the Saints this past week as Drew Brees suffered a thumb injury while under pressure from Aaron Donald. This remains a team that is set up to shut-down your passing attack with outside corners Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and with Nickell Robey-Coleman out of the slot. This is a unit that through two weeks have not allowed a touchdown so far this season to Cam Newton and the combination of Drew Brees and Teddy Bridgewater. The Browns will likely get to pick their matchups in this one as they move Odell Beckham into all positions onto the field while the Rams typically do not move their corners which can lead to mismatches as the Saints took advantage of with Michael Thomas catching 10 passes last week. Expect the Browns to test the 33-year old Talib in whether he can keep up with Beckham's speed.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs NYJ (10 / 6 / 161 / 1 rec - 31.1 points, $7800)

In his return to the Big Apple, Beckham made two exceptional plays in the win. On the first drive of the game, he hauled in a 33-yard, one-handed catch down the right sideline with a defender draped all over him. He got open deep on the left side of the field on the team's second drive but was overthrown. In the second quarter, he made a leaping 21-yard reception in which he held on after being sandwiched by two defenders. At the end of the second quarter, he drew a deep end zone shot but was unable to make the catch against double coverage. He came up limping and ended up heading to the locker room early with calf cramping. He received an I.V. during halftime and was able to return for the start of the third quarter. Beckham made the play of the game on an 89-yard touchdown reception during the third quarter. He took a pass that traveled about eight yards in the air and outran the Jets defense for the score, reaching a 21.7 MPH sprint according to NextGen stats. Beckham finished off the evening with 12 and six-yard catches in the fourth quarter.

2019 Week 1 vs TEN (11 / 7 / 71 / 0 rec - 14.1 points, $8100)

It was a tale of two halves for Beckham, who caught all but one of his passes in the first half of the contest. The Titans managed to find a way to limit him to just a 12-yard grab in the second half. His first catch as a Brown was a 16-yard gain where he showed his electric run after the catch ability to tack on some additional YAC. His next catch was a 12-yarder which was negated by an unnecessary roughness penalty. He went on to rack up an eight-yard and four-yard catch on the two ensuing first-quarter drives. He opened the second quarter with a 24-yard grab and then had another reception, this time an 18-yarder, negated by penalty. His only catch in the second half was a 12-yard reception in the third quarter. He came close to pulling in a decent gain in the fourth quarter but couldn't quite hang onto the ball along the left sideline. For what it is worth, Beckham looked just as explosive as usual, putting to rest any concerns over the training camp hip injury that held him out of all four preseason contests.
