Odell Beckham caught 5-of-7 targets for 54 yards in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Eagles.
Coming back from his one-game suspension, OBJ was a popular DFS play as he was seeking revenge to end the year on a high note. It didn't come, but Beckham did pass Randy Moss in the record books as the player with the most receiving yards in his first two seasons. After posting a 91-1,305-12 line as a rookie, OBJ one-upped it with a 96-1,450-13 line as a sophomore. He'll be a shoo-in top-three fantasy pick next season, but could be in a new offense if coach Tom Coughlin resigns and OC Ben McAdoo moves on. The Giants played at the second-highest pace this season. Jan 3 - 4:48 PM

The NFL upheld Odell Beckham's one-game suspension.

Beckham will miss Week 16 against Minnesota. It's a huge break for the Vikings in a game with playoff implications. Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris are now in line for increased targets, with Will Tye playing a bigger role in the red-zone. There were mitigating factors to Beckham's meltdown against the Panthers, but the decision to uphold his suspension was widely expected. Beckham will be fully reinstated for Week 17.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Odell Beckham's appeal of his one-game suspension will be heard Wednesday.

James Thrash will be the hearing officer. A decision is expected to be handed down quickly after the hearing, so we should know Beckham's final status by Wednesday evening. It remains likely the suspension is upheld. Beckham will be allowed to practice with the team while the appeal is pending.

Pro Football Talk reports Odell Beckham's appeal of his one-game suspension could be decided by Tuesday evening.

PFT reports the precedent is for the decision to be handed down Tuesday so the player can rejoin his team in time for the traditional first practice of the week Wednesday. Players do not usually win these types of appeals, but this case is an odd one for many reasons, not least of which are the alleged pregame threats with baseball bats or homophobic taunts. Beckham is still likely to sit out this week, but that is far from a given.

The appeal of Odell Beckham's one-game suspension is expected to be heard "by Wednesday."

The NFL has a history of taking its sweet time to hear suspension appeals in the offseason, but they tend to expedite suspensions handed down in-season. We'd be very surprised if Beckham's Week 16 availability or lack thereof wasn't confirmed in the next 48 hours. We'd also be stunned if OBJ won his appeal.

NFL suspended Giants WR Odell Beckham one game for "multiple violations of safety-related playing rules."

He appears poised to miss next Sunday night's game against the Vikings. Beckham will surely appeal, however, and the results of that appeal will ultimately determine his Week 16 availability. To be matter of fact, Beckham is lucky to get away with just a one-game suspension after he intentionally speared defenseless Panthers CB Josh Norman with his helmet toward the end of a play. It was a malicious act, and extremely poor timing as the sport of football continues to face heavy scrutiny related to head trauma and concussions.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it is "likely" Odell Beckham is suspended one game for his actions during the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

Schefter cautions the league is still discussing disciplinary actions, but a suspension is justified after Beckham lost control Sunday. Beckham was flagged for three personal fouls, but his most egregious act came when he drove the crown of his helmet into Josh Norman's head at the end of a play. If he is suspended, that play will likely be the reason. Beckham will likely appeal if he is handed a suspension, making it possible he could play in the most important fantasy week of the season. This developing story will be updated all week.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he strongly considered benching Odell Beckham Week 15 against the Panthers.

Beckham was out of control in the third quarter, committing two personal fouls and launching himself into Panthers CB Josh Norman's head at the end of a play. When asked why he did not bench Beckham, Coughlin said, "He’s got to learn at some point how to deal with some things on the field ... I want him out there to win the football game." Beckham is unlikely to face a suspension for his actions against Carolina, but it is not out of the question. Beckham is not making any friends around the league in his sophomore campaign.

Odell Beckham caught 6-of-9 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

The term "meltdown" is overused in an age of social media hyperbole, but that's exactly what Beckham had against Josh Norman and the Panthers. Beckham's game appeared to get off to the best possible start when he scorched Norman for a would-be 52-yard touchdown, but he committed a Ted Ginn-esque drop. Beckham then proceeded to completely embarrass himself, attacking Norman like it was an MMA match. At one point, Beckham had three personal fouls and only two catches. It was an insane display of raw emotion, one Beckham is lucky didn't get him ejected. Thankfully for his psyche and fantasy owners, Beckham has an easier Week 16 matchup in the Vikings.

Coach Tom Coughlin hinted the Giants may utilize Odell Beckham more in the slot with a matchup against Josh Norman looming.

"He's having an outstanding year matched up against the opponent's best receiver a majority of the time," Coughlin said of Norman, "at least until he goes until the slot." Coughlin added the team will continue to move Beckham, who already runs almost a quarter of his routes from the slot, around the formation, but it would make sense for New York to utilize Beckham inside more often in this matchup. These comments suggest they are at least considering it.

Odell Beckham caught 7-of-9 targets for 166 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 31-24, Week 14 win over the Dolphins on Monday night.

Beckham had a bit of a quiet start to this one, catching just two passes for 18 yards before running right by LCB Brent Grimes for a 45-yard catch just ahead of halftime to help set up Will Tye's five-yard touchdown. Beckham missed the first series of the third quarter due to cramping and needed an IV. The Dolphins wish he hadn't come out of the locker room, as OBJ dominated the second half. On his six-yard touchdown in the third quarter, Beckham did a great job dragging his second foot inside the end zone and controlling the ball all the way to the ground after the refs initially ruled the pass incomplete. In the fourth quarter, the Dolphins laughably somehow blew a coverage against the best receiver in football, letting Beckham run right down the middle of the field with nobody within 10 yards of him for an 84-yard score. It broke the 24-24 tie and proved to be the game-winner. He'll do battle with Panthers shutdown CB Josh Norman in Week 15. It'll be one to see.

Odell Beckham secured six of 11 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Beckham was simply unstoppable on Sunday. He dusted Marcus Gilchrist on a crossing pattern late in the second quarter and took it 72 yards for the touchdown. Before that, he made an incredible one-handed catch that went for 22 yards. Beckham very nearly came down with a second touchdown but Calvin Pryor stripped it at the last second. Beckham was checked for a concussion after the play but didn’t show any symptoms. He kept the Giants alive in overtime with a 21-yard catch against tight coverage. Beckham has gone for 100 yards in five straight games and is locked in as a weekly top-five play. Expect him to wreak havoc against the Dolphins in Week 14.

Odell Beckham caught 9-of-18 targets for 142 yards and a touchdown Week 12 against the Redskins.

Beckham was the only source of offense for most of the game, recording 94 of the Giants' 169 total yards through three quarters. The offense found some life in the fourth quarter, and Beckham made it a game with a spectacular one-handed diving grab for a 21-yard touchdown late. The Giants were not able to finish off the comeback, but Beckham once again dominated despite being the only offensive threat on the field. He will remain a top-end WR1 against the Jets next week.

According to Pro Football Focus, only Antonio Brown has seen more targets on third down than Odell Beckham this season.

Brown has racked up 39 third-down targets to Beckham's 33. Beckham has reeled in 22 of those targets without a drop. It's further proof that when the Giants are in a tough spot, Beckham is the player Eli Manning looks to most. Beckham has recorded three straight 100-yard games and will be an obvious WR1 when the Giants return from their bye next week against Washington.

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-12 targets for 104 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

Patriots No. 1 CB Malcolm Butler played a phenomenal game, but was beat on one play that ended up in an 87-yard touchdown for Beckham in the first quarter. OBJ ran right by Butler, and FS Devin McCourty took a poor angle, colliding with Butler on the play. Beckham later had a short TD called back on the wishy-washy catch rule. He caught the ball with both feet in the end zone, but Butler knocked it out afterward. The refs ruled Beckham wasn't a runner on the play and called it incomplete. Beckham and the Giants have a bye before heading to Washington in Week 12.
