Date:

Odell Beckham (ankle) is practicing Thursday.

Beckham was limited Wednesday and likely will be again today, but there is little doubt he will be ready to go on Sunday. Likely to play a bigger role this week, Beckham is a locked-in WR1.

Odell Beckham (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The Giants are just managing his practice reps coming off Monday night's game against the Lions. Beckham came down with four catches for 36 yards in that game while playing 34-of-56 offensive snaps. Now that he's had a game to shake off the rust, OBJ should be treated as a WR1 in all formats.

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Making his season debut after four weeks of rest following a preseason ankle injury, Beckham played just over 61% of the snaps, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke. He didn't start, and Beckham appeared to only be getting reps in meaningful situations like third downs and in the red zone. The one pass OBJ didn't reel in was a bad drop on a fourth down in the fourth quarter with the Giants down by two touchdowns. Beckham appeared to avoid setbacks and will be a WR1 next week at the Eagles.

Odell Beckham (ankle) is active for Week 2 against the Lions.

Beckham went through an extensive warmup routine before the game and is ready to make his 2017 debut. He's very likely not 100 percent, but OBJ is a must-start in all formats and all league sizes. Even at less than his best, Beckham is a WR1 dripping with upside in an offense that goes through him.
Sep 18 - 6:54 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Giants and WR Odell Beckham are both open to an in-season contract extension.

Most teams and players don't like to negotiate during the season. Beckham is under team control through 2018, but he's massively underpaid at just $1.839 million this season. Talk of a contract has been in the media for months now, though the two sides don't appear close to anything at all right now. OBJ is expected to reset the market at his position as a 25-year-old.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham will test his injured ankle in pre-game warmups on Monday night.

It is the same routine he followed before last week's game, but Raanan notes there is much more optimism he will play this time around. That said, owners should have a backup plan in place.
Sep 18 - 11:05 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Odell Beckham's (ankle) status for Monday Night Football is "up in the air."

This is about the worst possible news for Beckham owners, but it is important to note most reports this week have said the star receiver will suit up. Even so, it is smart to have an emergency plan in place. Sterling Shepard is still available in 57 percent of Yahoo leagues.
Sep 18 - 9:10 AM

Odell Beckham (ankle) is questionable for Week 2.

Beckham was limited all week, but the expectation is he will be able to play on Monday night. Fantasy owners still should have an emergency plan in place, but Beckham's upside means he has to be in lineups if active. Even with the injury concerns, Beckham is RotoPat's No. 8 receiver this week.
Sep 16 - 10:46 AM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham (ankle) is trending toward playing Monday night against the Lions.

This falls in line with most reports on Beckham's status. The Giants don't release their injury report until Saturday, but Beckham looks likely to play after sitting out last week. The bigger concern with Beckham is how much of a role he'll have at less than 100 percent. Beckham is shaping up as a high-risk WR1 for Week 2.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If concerned about Beckham’s health or his matchup with Darius Slay, there are two GPP pivot options. Sterling Shephard has a great spot against Quandre Diggs - it has the 7th-highest rating in our WR/CB model. A sneakier option in full PPR formats: Shane Vereen, who amassed nine receptions last week. Detroit struggled to defend receiving RBs in 2016, ranking 29th in DVOA while allowing the 9th-most receptions (7.1) and 6th-most receiving yards (46.8) per game. Last week, Arizona's RBs combined for a 9/104/0 line on 13 targets.

Odell Beckham (ankle) is practicing again on Friday.

The Giants won't release their final injury report until Saturday since they play Monday night against the Lions. OBJ seems more likely to play this week, but admitted he's not 100 percent. He could play a bit of a decoy role.
Sep 15 - 12:00 PM

Speaking to reporters following Thursday's return to limited practice, Odell Beckham (ankle) said he was dealing with a 6-8 week injury.

Beckham has been recovering for just 24 days. That would suggest he's more doubtful than questionable to return this week, but the other reports have been positive. Dreadfully for fantasy owners, Beckham is yet again playing in primetime, this time on Monday Night Football. If we don't have clarity on his status by Sunday morning, hard decisions are going to have to be made.
Sep 14 - 2:20 PM

Odell Beckham (ankle) was officially limited in his return to practice on Thursday.

As expected. Beckham nearly played Sunday in Dallas and should be ready to roll against Detroit on MNF. He'll provide a huge boost to a Giants offense that looked utterly lost in Week 1.
Sep 14 - 1:57 PM

Odell Beckham (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday.

It is his first work since spraining his ankle in the second preseason game. Beckham likely will be listed as limited, but even that in the first practice of the week is a good indication he will be ready to go on Monday night. The Giants' offense certainly needs him.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Beckham plays, he’ll return to a tough matchup with Darius Slay, who could potentially shadow him on the outside. Slay was targeted six times in Week 1 and allowed a 2/9/0 line. As a whole, Detroit's pass defense remains poor, which could boost market shares for Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram. Our WR/CB matchup tool provides Shepard the seventh-best score. Without Beckham on the field last week, he was targeted eight times and played every snap. Although he’d lose plays with Beckham active, the Giants used three receivers on 41-of-56 snaps last week. Shepard would be an interesting GPP pivot option.
Sep 14 - 12:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there is "a lot of optimism" Odell Beckham (ankle) will play against the Lions in Week 2.

Rapsheet said Beckham "pushed to play" Sunday night in Dallas but obviously couldn't get the green light. However, it looks like he has a much better chance of suiting up this week against the Lions on Monday Night Football. New York's offense was completely stagnant without him in Week 1, producing just three points and 233 yards from scrimmage.
