Giants | Odell Beckham's option picked up

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:58:02 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. officially had his fifth-year option exercised Thursday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's the easiest move the Giants will make all offseason. Beckham is arguably one of the three best wide receivers in the NFL and should be selected as such in fantasy drafts. He has averaged 96 catches, 1,374 yards and nearly 12 touchdowns in his first three professional seasons.

Giants | Odell Beckham's option to be exercised

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 09:33:37 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will have his fifth-year option exercised, and an announcement could come this week.

Fantasy Tip: If there were ever a no-brainer decision to make, this would be one. He has averaged 6.7 catches for 96 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game in his career. He's among the handful in consideration for top wide receiver in fantasy.

Giants | No decision yet on OBJ's fifth-year option

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 08:18:50 -0700

The New York Giants remain noncommittal on whether or not they intend on exercising the fifth-year option on WR Odell Beckham Jr. worth around $8 million. The deadline to do so is May 3.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants may just end up waiting until after the draft to take care of it, but there's almost no chance they will pass and give Beckham a chance to hit the open market as an unrestricted free-agent in 2018. He should remain an elite WR1 option in fantasy this season.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. skips workout

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 18:12:44 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. did not work out with the other skill position players during a two-day workout hosted by QB Eli Manning last week, and Beckham said he didn't attend because of upcoming oral surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It would have looked better for Beckham to attend with his teammates, but that doesn't change the fact that he is worthy of a first-round pick and should be one of the first receivers off the board.

Giants | OBJ expects to be ready by OTAs

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 11:53:28 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (teeth) could not accept QB Eli Manning's invitation to work out at Duke University last week because he had to undergo oral surgery. However, Beckham is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs on April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham's excuse was a bit weak - he was healthy enough to attend the NCAA national championship basketball game in Phoenix on Monday night but could not make it to Manning's two-day camp on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the upcoming surgery - but it is unlikely to make much of a difference for his fantasy prospects in 2017. While his overall numbers may come down a bit with Brandon Marshall opposite him, OBJ should still remain a top-five receiver in fantasy.

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 17:31:00 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 15 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles this season.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham averaged 7.5 catches, 98 yards and one touchdown in the two games against the Eagles. He finished in the top five in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns this season and will continue to be one of the most attractive options in fantasy football. He will be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues and may go in the first round of drafts.

Giants | Odell Beckham had trouble with drops late

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 12:00:08 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. had six drops in his final 82 targets of the 2016 season. He had only nine drops in the first 381 targets of his career. Beckham did suffer a minor thumb injury during the team's Week 11 game, which may have affected his play.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham did have a few drops during the Wild Card playoff game but is still one of the best receivers in the NFL. Beckham likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds of fantasy drafts and should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.

Buccaneers | New deal coming for Mike Evans?

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 18:17:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is eligible for a contract extension this offseason, and beat writer Mark Cook believes the Buccaneers should try to extend Evans before New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. receives a new deal and sets the market.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has 3,578 yards and 27 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He is a WR1 in any format and a top-five pick in dynasty leagues.

Giants | Another outburst for Odell Beckham Jr.

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 19:42:13 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. punched a hole in a wall following a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8, according to reports.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham's temper has made headlines throughout the year, but it hasn't stopped him from being one of the most productive receivers. He should be one of the first receivers off the board in 2017.

Giants | Sloppy performance for Odell Beckham Jr.

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 17:23:14 -0800

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. finished with four catches on 11 targets for 28 yards in a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham dropped multiple passes, including a potential touchdown, and wasn't able to take advantage of a porous Green Bay secondary. It was a bad end to his season, but he should still be viewed as a top-three fantasy receivers in 2017.
