Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs CHI (9 / 3 / 35 / 1 rec - 16.96 points, $8200)
Odell Beckham was targetted a decent amount in this game but only managed three catches for a modest recieving total. Manning was forcing the ball into Beckham's direction a lot but these passes were ill-advised on many occasions as the Bears frequently double covered the star reciever. Beckham was bumped at the line often and struggled to get involved down the field. Luckily, for the Giants and fantasy owners he found another way to get involved. Beckham got his hands on the ball from a reverse, then bought some time before heaving a deep pass to a wide open player for the easy touchdown that was very well executed. Beckham clearly has enough arm for this trick play to surface every now and again as he effortlessly threw it 50+ yards. He was wide open himself on 4th down in the redzone, unravelling after a few seconds into his route while catching a lofty ball but Beckham was alone so it was easily caught.
2018 Week 12 vs PHI (9 / 5 / 85 / 0 rec - 11 points, $8500)
Beckham was underutilized against a ragtag Eagles secondary. He showed an undeniable acceleration in his routes and on a few short receptions, and easily got free for a deep reception early in the game. He was targeted in the end zone twice. Once was into double coverage and behind him and ended up intercepted an on the other he was likely held. Manning also missed him on a short throw right before the interception. Beckham did have a big third down catch in the second half but could have had a much bigger impact on this game.
2018 Week 11 vs TB (4 / 4 / 74 / 1 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush - 16.5 points, $8500)
Odell Beckham and the entire Giants passing attack was relatively quiet as they chose to run the ball heavily in this game. Beckham rarely saw the ball as a result but still managed to give something to fantasy players who started him. He broke free on a deep route down the field after play action and hauled in a perfectly placed ball over the shoulder from Manning. He picked up a first down on an end around play next from Barkley, using his speed to easily get away from the first defender. Beckham was wide open down the middle after Manning had several seconds to survey the field with no pass rush to bother him. He made an amazing grab in the corner of the endzone on a fade route, showing strong hands to secure the ball in bounds before being shoved out over the white line. The Giants didn't need a lot from Beckham in this game and looked content to give him a reduced workload.
2018 Week 10 vs SF (11 / 4 / 73 / 2 rec - 21.3 points, $8400)
Beckham had more than double the targets of any other Giants player in the road win in San Francisco. His two-touchdown performance could have been much bigger with two drops by Beckham plus two poor throws on potential long gains or touchdowns by Eli Manning. Beckham nearly hauled in an end zone one-handed attempt as well. Beckham separated at will against the 49ers, but the connect between Manning and Beckham was solid but not precise. Tampa Bay next week offers an outstanding matchup to continue his strong season of production despite a lackluster team record.
2018 Week 8 vs WAS (11 / 8 / 136 / 0 rec - 17.6 points, $8500)
Odell Beckham made some unbelievable catches in this game and really provided the only consistent threat the Giants had on Sunday. He started the game off with a bang as he hauled in a deep pass along the sideline despite having the defender simultaneously called for defensive pass interference. The defender was actually in off coverage by many yards at the beginning of the route but Beckham was able to close the gap with his elite speed. Beckham got several balls over the middle and was able to get many yards after the catch. He got several first downs, made the first man miss and looked like the only Giants player the Redskins really needed to contain. Beckham wasn't able to get into the endzone despite his big plays as he got so much attention from the defense. He took advantage of soft man to man coverage on a slant play and exploded down the field with some blocks. Beckham made one final terrific one handed catch on a late/off target pass deep over the middle, securing it somehow with one hand. His speed/hands/quickness combination were glaringly obvious in this game, a true nightmare for defenses. It's unfortunate that the team around him are lacking in several areas.
2018 Week 7 vs ATL (11 / 8 / 143 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush - 24.2 points, $0)
Odell Beckham Jr. victimised the Atlanta secondary with a vintage performance that reminded the league he belongs in the upper echelon of pass catchers, regardless of the offense's inadequacies. Beckham won with quickness, route-running, blazing speed and terrific feel for where the boundary was. He and Eli Manning connected immediately on a slant route and followed it up with a beautiful link-up on a shallow crossing pattern versus the Atlanta zone defense. Beckham repeated that feat, gaining 26 yards on a deep crossing pattern against man coverage. It could have been an even more productive day for Beckham, as it turned out. Manning missed him on an easy pitch-and-catch throw to the corner of the end zone on one occasion. On the other, Beckham was wide open in the flat at the Atlanta goal line, only for Manning to delay the pass and go elsewhere ultimately. Beckham capped the spectacular day with a stunning touchdown catch at the back line of the end zone, dragging his feet in bounds effortlessly.
2018 Week 6 vs PHI (10 / 6 / 44 / 0 rec - 7.4 points, $8600)
Odell Beckham was somewhat helpless as the Giants offense looked dismal on Thursday. Manning and the passing attack was failing to complete any balls downfield and Beckham only got short receptions as he was well covered by the Eagle defense for a lot of this game. Manning forced balls into Beckhams direction at times but he was generally covered or the pass was off target. Beckham showed excellent effort and speed when he was able to take short balls for decent gains. He made several defenders miss their first tackle attempt and picked up a lot of "hidden" yards. Manning tried to hit Beckham in the endzone late on a fade but there was no separation with the DB. Beckham's production is tied with Manning's ability to play well a lot of the time and the team were just in a funk offensively on thursday night.
2018 Week 5 vs CAR (14 / 8 / 131 / 1 rec - 27.38 points, $8300)
Odell Beckham started off his day with a spectacular one handed grab along the sideline, securing it in bounds for a first down. Beckham converted many downs for the Giants in this game and they used him in a variety of plays, which plays to his strengths as a highly versatile player. He caught a slant in stride over the middle but lost his footing and fell over, which was unfortunate as he had a lot of space still in front of him. He took advantage of any man to man coverage at the line and was difficult to contain at times in this game. The Panthers paid too much attention to him on a double pass play which allowed Beckham to show off his arm on a deep pass to a wide open Barkley down the sideline. Beckham did well to break up a ball that was almost intercepted, getting his hand in at the right time. Unfortunately this also happenned to him as a deep pass found him in the endzone but the defender stuck his arm in between Beckham and the ball to dislodge it. Beckham's touchdown came on a simple go pattern where he had gained just enough separation in front of the defenders to haul in a pass from Manning. The coverage was tight but he secured the ball in the endzone for the spectacular score.
2018 Week 4 vs NO (11 / 7 / 60 / 0 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush - 10.5 points, $8600)
Odell Beckham was somewhat underused in this game as the Giants struggled to move the ball at all. Beckham was not targeted downfield and the majority of his passes were kept very short to the line of scrimmage. The Saints have shown weaknesses in the secondary and a guy like Beckham should have had better success but the Giants didn't/couldn't get him the ball. He was open a few times in this game and Manning failed to get him the ball, either missing too high or throwing behind him but those plays weren't the whole reason for the Giants inept offense. Beckham was swarmed every time he caught a short ball off Manning and had nowhere to run. His athletic ability wasn't enough to overcome the flurry of defenders running his way and this caused visible frustration. Beckham hauled in slants, curls and drag routes over the middle but could not shake free for a big run after the catch. He had a nice explosive play down the middle on a slant route but this was in 'garbage' time really as the Saints were in a prevent defense. The Giants need to use Beckham down the field more often and show defenses they aren't afraid to go deep, their game plan vs the Saints did not work at all.
2018 Week 3 vs HOU (10 / 9 / 109 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush - 15.4 points, $8300)
Odell Beckham had a relatively quiet game for his standards but was still a strong player for fantasy owners in PPR leagues. Beckham simply was incredibly useful at picking up first downs for the Giants. He ran slants/curls/deep in breaking patterns and hauled in balls all game long to keep the Giants alive. They tried him on another end around rush play that failed to work, perhaps they need to retire this play as it rarely works for Beckham. He showed incredible explosion as always with the ball in his hands, running away from defenders after short passes and getting as many yards as possible after the catch. Beckham looked very slippery and tough to bring down in the open field as defenders struggled to contain him. He had an excellent catch off a tipped pass late in the game but this was negated unfortunately by a holding call.
2018 Week 2 vs DAL (9 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec - 7.1 points, $0)
Odell Beckham Jr. was not involved much in this game and could only watch as his quarterback was under incredible pressure all game long. Beckham got only 4 passes and 2 of these were late as the game was out of hand. Manning and the entire Giants passing attack was woeful and the lack of pass protection decimated any fantasy potential of guys like Beckham. He looked as fast as ever and got wide open at times when he got the ball but the opportunities to go downfield were just too rare. Beckham is a big deep threat but this potential wasn't much use when Manning was on his back after every other third down. He had one chance at a deep ball late but it was way overthrown and fell incomplete. Fantasy owners will have to put up with dud performances like this unfortunately until the Giants solve their offensive line woes.
2018 Week 1 vs JAX (15 / 11 / 111 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush - 16.5 points, $7800)
Odell Beckham looked as explosive and dynamic as ever and Giants fans can relax as their young playmaker is going to be around for a while. He was involved throughout the entire game and Manning looked his wayoften. Beckham caught balls all over the field and kept the Jaguars honest as they had to respect his deep threat potential. He had a slant play early negated by a penalty and had to wait for an underthrown ball which limited its potentialbut these were the minor issues with his production on Sunday. Beckham caused panic from the Jaguars secondary as he ran deep routes, drawing several pass interference calls as he tried to haul in passes. Beckham was also wide open in the endzone on another deep route but unfortunately the ball was overthrown and fell incomplete. He worked the middle of the field very well, getting massive separation at times on the sideline. Beckham was unlucky not to score in this gamebut he will have big games coming this season.
