Odell Beckham caught four passes for 34 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.
In the first game since Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury, Beckham impressed by playing every single snap and operating all over the formation. His first touchdown came on a pretty route in which he roasted Brandon Carr for a 9-yard score. The second score was out of slot, as the rookie sat down in a zone and Eli Manning found him from five yards out. With explosive change-of-direction ability and strong hands, Beckham is quickly becoming a favorite of Eli. The only bad note is that the Giants have tough matchups after the bye: IND, SEA, SF.

Odell Beckham will take over Victor Cruz's starting role.

Beckham was ticketed to only play in three-wide sets, but Cruz's injury changes all that. He'll start opposite Rueben Randle and stay outside when the Giants go to their preferred three-wide look, leaving Preston Parker to man the slot. Armed with an increase in both playing time and projected targets, the impressive rookie needs to be owned across the board. Beckham, an explosive playmaker after the catch with underrated catch-point ability, will be a WR3 against Dallas in Week 7.

Odell Beckham had two catches for 28 yards in Week 6 against the Eagles.

Beckham took a step back after scoring a touchdown in his debut last week. He was a near every-down player in three-wide sets, but finished with just four targets. Beckham is now locked into a starting job with Victor Cruz out for the season, and needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. He'll be a high-upside WR3 in Week 7 against Dallas.
Oct 13 - 12:57 AM expects Odell Beckham to "quickly become one of Eli Manning's favorite receivers."

Beckham made an impact in his debut last week, posting a 4/44/1 line on five targets. He played over 50 percent of snaps despite missing the first month of the season. The Giants plan to get Beckham more involved this week. Beckham is worth WR3 consideration against the Eagles' 29th ranked pass defense.
Oct 11 - 6:46 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is not on the Week 6 injury report.

He's back to 100 percent and will be all systems go for an increased role against the Eagles after playing just over 50 percent of the snaps in his debut against the Falcons. Beckham should play in all three-wide sets, and that's the Giants' base offense under OC Ben McAdoo. He's in the WR3 conversation. Expect Beckham and Rueben Randle to see plenty of Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher on the outside, while Victor Cruz works on slot CB Brandon Boykin.
Oct 8 - 11:05 AM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin confirmed Odell Beckham's hamstring emerged from Week 5 unscathed, and his role will grow moving forward.

Along with Rueben Randle and Victor Cruz, "OBJ" will get favorable matchups with the Eagles and Cowboys over the next two weeks. "He seemed to be fine today, there wasn't an issue," Coughlin said Monday. "We will push him along even further now." Beckham played just over 50 percent of the Giants' Week 5 snaps, registering a 4-44-1 receiving line on five targets with a long PI penalty.
Oct 6 - 5:45 PM

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-5 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 5 win over the Falcons.

He also drew a key pass interference call deep downfield on Falcons RCB Robert Alford to help set up Andre Williams' goal-line plunge. The 12th pick in May's draft, Beckham was only expected to play about 20 snaps in his NFL debut. We suspect he was somewhere in the 30s against the Falcons, and had a big impact on the game. As the Giants face the Eagles next, Beckham is suddenly worth WR3 consideration. He should be owned in all 12- and 14-team leagues.
Oct 5 - 4:10 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is active for Week 5 against the Falcons.

New York's inactives list is LB Jon Beason, WR Julian Talley, OL James Brewer, OL Adam Snyder, OL Charles Brown, DT Jay Bromley, and DE Kerry Wynn. Beckham is expected to play roughly 30 percent of the Giants' Week 5 offensive snaps, likely rotating with Preston Parker. Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle will remain every-down players at Z and X, respectively, in two-receiver sets.
Oct 5 - 11:34 AM

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones expects the Giants to be "exceedingly cautious" with Odell Beckham in his season debut Sunday against the Falcons.

Beckham is the Giants' No. 4 receiver; he's yet to pass Preston Parker. The No 12 overall pick in May's draft has missed a ton of practice time. He knows the playbook for the most part, but the expectation is Beckham will play around 20 snaps versus Atlanta. First and foremost, he needs to stay healthy. If Beckham can remain on the field, his role will grow. He's not a fantasy option right now.
Oct 5 - 9:39 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes "it makes sense to ease" rookie WR Odell Beckham (hamstring) into the offense.

If Beckham suits up Week 5, Graziano expects him to play "something in the range of 15 to 20 snaps." We suspect he will rotate with Preston Parker on the outside in three-wide looks. He is worth rostering in deeper leagues, but it might be a while before Beckham has a large role in the Giants offense.
Oct 4 - 11:01 AM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Falcons.

Beckham said Thursday he'd be happy to just play a limited number of snaps in his NFL debut. We suspect he'll rotate with Preston Parker. Beckham is worth rostering in 14-team leagues, but near-term expectations should be checked.
Oct 3 - 1:13 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) said he'd be happy with a limited number of plays in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Beckham went through a hard practice Wednesday, and did the same on Thursday, though he was officially "limited." As long as he emerges without any setbacks, coach Tom Coughlin said the No. 12 overall pick will be part of the gameplan. However, Beckham won't be startable in fantasy until his snap count gets up around the 70-75 percent mark we eventually expect.
Oct 2 - 8:43 AM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Beckham is on track to make his debut this week against the Falcons. The Giants want to see "some hard practices back to back" before clearing him to return. He's unlikely to be part of the gameplan in his first game back, but could be active as the No. 4 receiver. Beckham will start in three-wide sets when he gets acclimated in OC Ben McAdoo's scheme.
Oct 1 - 1:54 PM

The NY Daily News believes it "remains to be seen" whether Odell Beckham (hamstring) will play in Week 5 against Atlanta.

Beckham has resumed practicing with the Giants' wide receivers, but the team may not want to risk another setback by pushing him too hard. He certainly won't be a full-time player in his first game back. Look for Rueben Randle, Victor Cruz, and Preston Parker to remain the Giants' three-receiver set against the Falcons. Beckham could be mixed in as the No. 4 on limited snaps.
Sep 29 - 3:45 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is practicing on a limited basis Monday, as expected.

Beckham, who says he's as close to 100 percent as he's going to get, has a real shot to finally make his NFL debut when the Giants host the Falcons Sunday. He'll likely be eased in initially, but is worth a stash in deeper 12-team formats. The Giants want to run three-wide sets as their base offense.
