Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 In Week 7
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will look to bounce back this weekend after turning in a two-catch, 25-yard performance in Week 6. He has a good shot at doing so against a Cincinnati Bengals secondary that ranks 16th in the league in DVOA and allowed Beckham to go for 74 yards and a touchdown back in Week 2. Beckham has looked explosive as ever this season, but his upside has been capped by a run-first Cleveland offense. Fantasy gamers can use Beckham as a low-end WR2 against the Bengals this weekend.Oct 22 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Catches Just Two Balls In Loss
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a quiet outing in a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. Beckham caught just two of his four targets for 25 yards in the blowout loss. He was visibly frustrated on the sidelines during the loss. Cameras showed him slamming his helmet and shoes at the end of the loss. Beckham has been up-and-down in a run-heavy Cleveland offense through six games, but Week 6's outing was by far his worst of the year. He is a good bet to bounce back in Week 7 against a beatable Cincinnati Bengals secondary.Oct 18 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry Both On Track To Play Sunday
Cleveland Browns wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) and Jarvis Landry (hip/ribs) are both set to play in Sundays contest against the Steelers despite having had questionable designations throughout the week. Beckhams absence was tied to receiving negative COVID-19 tests, which put him on track to play so long as he felt up to it, while Landry returned to practice Friday and will look to be a key cog in the passing game versus Pittsburgh. Both hold season-long appeal, with Beckham continuing to have the higher upside of the two, even against a stout Steelers secondary. With Baker Mayfield (chest) cleared to start under center, Beckham and Landry should be utilized with a business as usual mantra in lineups Sunday.Oct 18 · Source via Browns Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Cleared To Return, Expected To Play Sunday
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) passed his second COVID-19 test and has been cleared to return to the team. Beckham was sent home from practice on Thursday with an illness and had to test negative for two straight days before he was able to rejoin the team, per the NFL's 2020 COVID-19 testing protocols. Beckham spent Thursday and Friday working out on his own and joined team meetings remotely. He is expected to travel with the team to Pittsburgh and is on track to play against the Steelers on Sunday. Fantasy gamers can trust him as a solid WR2 this weekend.Oct 17 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry Questionable
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (chest) and wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) and Jarvis Landry (hip, ribs) are listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Steelers. Mayfield practiced this week and said earlier this week that he'll play in a big divisional contest against Pittsburgh. The Steelers Defense has been strong this year, though, and Mayfield might be without one or both of his top receivers, so he'll merely be a QB2 for fantasy managers. Beckham tested negative for COVID-19, but you'll need to check back Sunday morning on his status. The Steelers have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to receivers, so both OBJ and Landry have some upside if they're active. Beckham is a solid WR2 if active, while Landry will be a safe WR3 in PPR leagues if he plays. The good news is Landry returned to practice on Friday and is pushing to play.Oct 16 · Source via Browns Jarvis Landry Baker Mayfield Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Remains Away From Team
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) remains out of the building on Friday per the COVID-19 protocol. All Browns players and staff, including Beckham, tested negative for COVID-19 from Thursday's round of testing, according to a source. That's good news and means that OBJ should be able to play in Week 6 against the Steelers. Against a Pittsburgh defense that has surprisingly allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to receivers, Beckham will be a strong WR2 choice for fantasy managers this Sunday if he's active. He ranks 13th in the NFL with 43 total targets and is the team leader in targets over Jarvis Landry by a wide margin.Oct 16 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Sent Home With Illness
Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been sent home with an illness on Thursday. The Browns aren't assuming anything with Beckham but want to play it safe amidst all the COVID-19 protocols the NFL has adopted this year. This isn't a huge concern just yet, but fantasy managers need to keep a close eye on whether he returns to practice on Friday. The low volume of the passing attack under Stefanski is a concern, but OBJ has been pretty solid as a WR2 so far this year, and he should remain one if he plays this weekend against a Pittsburgh team allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers. If for some reason Beckham can't go this weekend, Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins and tight end Austin Hooper would see an increase in targets.Oct 15 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 In Week 6
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has settled in as a solid WR2 for fantasy purposes this season. He will face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6 in a plus matchup. The Pittsburgh defense has been tough against the run and weak vs. the pass through the first four games of the 2020 season. That could force a normally run-heavy Cleveland offense to pass more frequently than they have skewed through five games. Beckham, of course, always has the chance to break off a long touchdown whenever he takes the field. Fantasy gamers can treat Beckham as a solid WR2 in Week 6.Oct 15 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Catches Five Passes In Week 5
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught five of nine targets for 58 yards in a 32-23 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5. He also completed an 18-yard pass and lost a yard on his lone rushing attempt. While it wasn't a huge game, Beckham tied for second on the team with nine targets and continues to get involved all over the field for Cleveland as he settles in as a low-end WR2 for fantasy. He now has 21 catches for 294 yards and three touchdowns through five games. He will face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.Oct 11 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 Vs. Colts
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a huge three-touchdown game in a Week 4 win over the Dallas Cowboys. He may find it hard to repeat that performance against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5. Indy possesses one of the top pass defenses through the early portion of the schedule, ranking second in DVOA after four games. While last week's game against the Cowboys turned into a shootout, as expected, this weekend's game will likely be a low-scoring affair. In addition to dealing with a run-heavy game script, Beckham will also run the majority of his routes against cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who has been excellent in coverage in 2020. Fantasy gamers can slot Beckham in as a low-end WR2 in fantasy for Week 5.Oct 7 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Looking Healthier, Faster In 2020
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is averaging a faster speed as a ball-carrier this year than he was over the last two years. Beckham reached a maximum speed of 20.64 mph on his 50-yard touchdown run in the Week 4 win over the Cowboys on Sunday, which was his fastest speed this season and second-fastest with the Browns, according to Next Gen Stats. His average max speed of 15.98 mph as a ball-carrier this year is his fastest average max speed in the last three seasons. OBJ looks fully healthy, as he scored three touchdowns this week for his fantasy managers. After a disappointing first year in Cleveland, Beckham is starting to look more like he did in New York. Despite a tough matchup with the Colts in Week 5, he'll be a solid WR2.Oct 5 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Scores Three Times In Week 4
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a huge game in a 49-38 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. Beckham finished with five catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns while adding two rushes for 73 yards and another score in the big win over Dallas. The star receiver drew first blood in the outing on a 37-yard touchdown reception throw by Jarvis Landry on a trick play on Cleveland's first possession of the game. He followed that up with a four-yard TD reception in the second quarter and then iced the game with a 50-yard touchdown run in the fourth. Beckham now has 16 receptions for 236 yards and four total scores through four games. He will be a WR2 against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.Oct 4 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Good To Go For Week 4
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (back) was a full participant in practice on Friday and is good to go for Week 4 against the Cowboys. Beckham was added to the Week 4 injury report on Thursday as he battled through a back issue, but it doesn't look like anything too serious, so his fantasy managers can leave him locked into their lineups this weekend. In a game that could feature plenty of points against a Dallas defense that hasn't been able to contain anyone in three games, OBJ has considerable upside as a WR2 for his fantasy managers. The 27-year-old could be an even better bet if running back Kareem Hunt (groin) is limited or out on Sunday.Oct 2 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Working Through Back Injury
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (back) was added to the injury report on Thursday with a back injury that he's working through. Beckham was officially limited in Thursday's practice, so it looks like he still has a good shot at suiting up in Week 4 against the Cowboys. Through three games in 2020, OBJ has 11 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown and is seeing consistent enough targets to make him a solid WR2 each and every week. This Sunday against a Dallas offense that hasn't had trouble putting points on the board, the Browns figure to throw the ball frequently. The Cowboys secondary is also allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to the receiver position.Oct 1 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. A Solid WR2 In Week 4
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is off to a modest start in 2020. Through three games has hauled in 11 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets. He has the potential for a big game in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys as Dallas has an explosive offense and a shaky pass defense. Those two factors could combine to force Cleveland to throw more passes than they have attempted over the past two games. Fantasy gamers can start Beckham as a solid WR2 for Week 4's matchup with Dallas.Oct 1 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Catches Four Passes
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught four of six targets for 59 yards in a 34-20 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 3, good enough to lead his team in receiving. Beckham turned another solid, yet unspectacular, game for the run-heavy Cleveland offense. Through three games, Beckham has 11 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown for the Browns. While the team running frequently is lowering his weekly ceiling, Beckham could have a big game in Week 4 in a road game against an explosive Dallas Cowboys offense. He is settling in as a low-end WR2 in fantasy this year.Sep 27 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 In Week 3
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is coming off a productive game in a Week 2 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Beckham caught four passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in the win. He will go up against a leaky secondary employed by the Washington Football Team in Week 3. While Washington doesn't have a great secondary, they do have one of the pass rushes in the league, led by rookie Chase Young. That could spell trouble for the Cleveland passing attack in Week 3. The Browns are also seven-point home favorites, so expect the team to skew run-heavy on Sunday. Fantasy gamers can still start Beckham as a low-end WR2 but a WR1 week out of OBJ is looking unlikely.Sep 24 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Not On Trading Block
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will not be traded and the team has no plans to do so in the future, according to Adam Schefter. There was speculation that Beckham was on the block after a disappointing loss to the Ravens in Week 1, though the Browns insist that this was never a possibility. The Pro Bowl wideout bounced back in a big way in Week 2, recording four catches for 74 yards and a score against the Bengals on Thursday night. With matchups against Washington, Dallas and Indianapolis on deck, Beckham can be viewed as a potential buy-low candidate, especially if any of his fantasy managers are concerned at the moment.Sep 20 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Scores In Week 2
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught four of his six targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Beckham and Baker Mayfield connected for a pretty 43-yard touchdown in the second quarter to give Cleveland their second TD of the evening. That went in the books as Beckham's first score of the 2020 season. The star receiver has now drawn 16 targets through the first two games of the season, totalling seven catches for 96 yards. He will be a solid WR2 in Week 3 when he faces the Washington Football Team.Sep 18 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. A WR3 In Week 2
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had an up-and-down game in Week 1's blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He led the team with 10 targets but only finished with three catches for 22 yards against an excellent Baltimore secondary. He should find it much easier to operate in Week 2's Thursday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Expect Beckham to see plenty of targets again in Week 2 against a Cincy secondary that is much more vulnerable than Baltimore's. That being said, it is hard to trust Beckham as much more than a WR3 until we see the Browns offense operate at a competent level, something that has been a rare sight over the past 17 games.Sep 17 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Quiet In Week 1
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a quiet outing in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Beckham caught just three of 10 targets for 22 yards in the lopsided loss while committing several mistakes along the way. The star receiver committed a brutal drop that would have given his team a new set of downs on a third down. He also had a catch negated by a facemask penalty against him after the grab and another reception wiped away after stepped out of bounds before coming down with the ball. On the plus side, Beckham did draw a few pass interference flags for his team along the way.

Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 In Week 1
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will take on a tough Baltimore Ravens Defense in a road game to kick off the season in Week 1. Beckham squared off against Baltimore twice in 2019, posting two catches for 20 yards in their first meeting and four catches for 44 yards and a score in their rematch. The Ravens boasted a strong secondary in 2019 and the Cleveland offense that is expected to be run-heavy under new head coach Kevin Stefanski. For both of those reasons, treat OBJ as a low-end WR2 for his matchup in Week 1.Sep 8 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Gelling In Cleveland
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. spoke with the media on Tuesday afternoon, and he talked about how the chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield should be dramatically improved from last season. He said that their focus is on taking things on a day-by-day basis, but they're both in a better place physically heading into 2020. After a down year in 2019, both of them will be looking to bounce back this year. While OBJ's price has come down slightly because of his disappointing 2019 campaign, he still has one of the highest ceilings of any wideout in the league if everything falls into place in head coach Kevin Stefanski's new offense. He'll be a low-end WR1 with elite-WR1 upside.Aug 25 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr., Baker Mayfield Have Improved Chemistry
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield said his chemistry with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is much improved heading into their second season together. "It's sure as hell going to be a lot better than last year," Mayfield said. Wide receivers coach and passing-game coordinator Chad O'Shea has instilled a better culture among the team's receivers, and Mayfield thinks OBJ will work better in the new scheme. "You can tell how serious the offseason was for him," Mayfield said. "It just kind of permeates throughout the whole building." Beckham is coming off a career-low in catches (74) and yards (1,035), but he's still a low-end WR1 with an incredibly high ceiling if Cleveland's offense can learn from their mistakes of the 2019 season.Aug 24 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr. Baker Mayfield
Odell Beckham Jr. Looking "Explosive" During Camp
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has looked "explosive" during training camp thus far, this according to a source during a phone call with Josina Anderson. This is welcome news to Browns' fans after the veteran wideout produced 1,035 yards and four touchdowns off of 74 catches last season. While those numbers aren't horrific, they are still a long way away from Beckham's elite years with the New York Giants. The 27-year-old can be found floating around in the second or third rounds of fantasy drafts, depending on league size. However, Beckham could see himself returning to a first-round value if he and quarterback Baker Mayfield are on the same page, and he can remain healthy during the 2020 campaign.Aug 19 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. Won't Opt Out
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has no plans to opt out of the 2020 NFL season, despite negative comments he made in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. In the interview, Beckham criticized the NFL, stating, I just feel like the season shouldnt happen and Im prepared for it to not happen and I wouldnt mind not having it. Were not ready for the season, so why are we trying to push forward?" It turns out that the interview took place two weeks ago and Beckham has since backed off on those comments after he saw how safe and sanitary everything inside the Cleveland facility has been. Beckham should be treated as an upside WR2 in fantasy drafts this season.Aug 3 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
