Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught all four of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 34-11 Wild-Card Round win over the Arizona Cardinals. Rams QB Matthew Stafford connected with Beckham for a four-yard touchdown during the team's second offensive drive. The former Cleveland Brown has now scored in four of his last five games. Since joining the Rams, Beckham has hauled in 31 receptions for 359 yards and six touchdowns over nine games. The 29-year-old will have a vital role as one of Stafford's top targets in Sunday's NFC Divisional-Round matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Jan 18 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has seemingly settled into a consistent role, and he played well again in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens. Beckham caught five of his seven targets for 39 yards and a touchdown. Beckham has now caught a touchdown in five of his last six games, and he's clearly the WR2 on this team with at least five targets in all but two games. His only real poor performance was his first game with LA when he was still learning the offense. Beckham is still lacking for the high ceiling that fantasy managers would like to see out of him in an explosive offense, but if you're slotting him into your flex spot, you could be doing a whole lot worse.Jan 2 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a miserable game a week ago, but he was able to bounce back in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings. Beckham caught four of his eight targets for 37 yards and a touchdown on the day. Beckham's eight targets were the second-most on the team and the second-most targets that he had seen since he joined the Rams back in Week 10. He's clearly settled into the WR2 role in this offense, and he's a little less reliant on big plays than teammate Van Jefferson. Beckham remains inconsistent as a fantasy option, but his volume makes him a flex play every week in a high-scoring offense.Dec 26 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was dealing with COVID-19 last week, but he's active against the Seattle Seahawks after testing negative and should have strong flex value for Week 15 on Tuesday. After scoring just 3.8 fantasy points in his Rams debut, Beckham has put up double-digit points in each of his last three games while scoring a touchdown in each of those matchups. The Seahawks are one of the better teams against opposing pass-catchers this year, as they're allowing the 10th-fewest points to opposing wideouts. Beckham has seen five or more targets in each of the last three games, though, and he's seen consistent enough volume to have confidence in him as a flex play.Dec 20 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been removed from the COVID list on Saturday. That means, Beckham will be available for Tuesday's Week 15 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Pro Bowl wideout has been finding his groove with his new team lately. In fact, Beckham has scored a touchdown in each of his last three games. Although, he could have trouble keeping that streak alive against Seattle. A defense that has not allowed a receiving touchdown over the last five weeks. Despite that, fantasy managers should consider Beckham a low-end WR2 for this matchup.Dec 18 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
The Los Angeles Rams have closed their training facility and have entered the league's intensive COVID-19 protocols on Tuesday. The Rams placed six players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday, including wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., nose tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day, defensive back Terrell Burgess, tight end Brycen Hopkins, defensive back JuJu Hughes and offensive lineman Alaric Jackson. There's a good chance that more players will end up with positive tests on the Rams in the coming days. While Beckham has a chance to play in Week 15 if he's vaccinated and returns two negative tests 24 hours apart, there's a good chance he won't be available, so fantasy managers need to plan accordingly.Dec 14 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr. Terrell Burgess Brycen Hopkins Sebastian Joseph-Day
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, just one day after cornerback Jalen Ramsey and tight end Tyler Higbee were placed on the COVID-19 list. The Rams have now closed their practice facility and have entered intensive protocols as a result of a number of positive tests. Just as Beckham was starting to get more comfortable in the offense, his status is now in question for Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. If he is vaccinated, he must register two negative tests within 24 hours to be eligible to play in Week 15. If he is unvaccinated, he will miss a minimum of 10 days which would knock him out of the lineup on Sunday. This is a situation to monitor as we head into the fantasy playoffs, as there could be more positive tests for the Rams in the coming days.Dec 14 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (thigh) are both active for Sunday's meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jay Glazer reported that Henderson will serve as the backup to Sony Michel, so fantasy managers should likely avoid playing Henderson if possible.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) is expected to play against the Jaguars on Sunday despite being listed as questionable, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The 29-year-old has appeared in two games since signing with Los Angeles. During this time, he has caught seven passes for 99 yards, though the majority of that came just last week against the Packers.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip), who is questionable for Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hip-pointer injury, said he expects to play on Sunday. "Been through worse!" Beckham said. The fact that the 29-year-old returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday's session also bodes well for his status this weekend. After playing in 98% of the offensive snaps and catching five of a season-high targets for 81 yards and his first touchdown of the year, Beckham can now safely be considered LA's No. 2 receiver behind Cooper Kupp. The Rams may not have to throw much to win easily against the Jags, but Jacksonville is giving up the sixth-most fantasy points to wideouts in the last three weeks.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) didn't practice on Thursday with his hip injury, and his status for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is now up in the air, according to a source. Beckham's hip-pointer injury isn't considered a major issue, but there are some questions about his availability in Week 13. Expect to see OBJ listed as questionable on the final injury report. It's not what his fantasy managers want to see after he played 98% of the offensive snaps and scored his first touchdown of the season in the Week 12 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He's gone from being an upside WR3/flex in a great matchup against the Jaguars to a risky WR3/flex because of the injury.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) was limited in practice on Wednesday, but he was downgraded to a DNP on Thursday. However, head coach Sean McVay noted on Wednesday that he believes that Beckham will be active on Sunday to face the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 29-year-old is dealing with a hip pointer and should be able to play through the issue. OBJ played 98% of the offensive snaps in his second game with the Rams in the Week 12 loss to the Green Bay Packers and caught five of 10 targets for a season-high 81 yards and his first touchdown of the year. It's clear that LA wants Beckham to be the No. 2 receiver behind Cooper Kupp, and the former Cleveland Brown will be a strong WR3/flex against a Jacksonville defense that has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position in 2021.Dec 2 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and Ben Skowronek (back) were both limited in practice on Wednesday.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he expects wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to play a big role in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers in just his second game with the team. It comes after a report on Tuesday where McVay said that Beckham's involvement in the offense was still a "work in progress." Believe what you will, but OBJ did have last week's bye to gain a better understanding of the team's playbook, so we would expect him to be on the field more than the 15 offensive snaps he played in his debut in Week 10 when he caught two of three targets for only 18 yards. The Packers defense has been pretty solid against wideouts this year, but Beckham has the opportunity to become the Rams No. 2 receiver down the stretch, which at the very least makes him a great bench stash until he proves he's ready for a bigger role.Nov 24 · Source via Rams Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. remains "a work in progress" as it pertains to the team's efforts to incorporate him more into the offense after his uneventful debut on Monday Night Football in Week 10. Beckham is also still working through a shoulder injury that had him limited in practices with the Cleveland Browns before he was released. OBJ played only 27% of the offensive snaps in his debut with LA two weeks ago, and he had two catches for 18 yards. He should be more involved in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, but from McVay's comments, fantasy managers shouldn't suddenly expect Beckham to be heavily targeted in just his second game with the team.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made his debut with the Rams in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, but he was unable to do much in his debut. Beckham caught two of his three targets for 18 yards on the night. Beckham had just one practice with the team, and that affected the number of snaps he saw, especially with the Rams offense going with no huddle for the of the game down multiple scores. He should be more involved moving forward coming out of the team's Week 11 bye, but this game was one to forget for him.

Beckham and the rookie Skowronek should both have a role in the offense with Robert Woods (knee) now done for the rest of the season. However, Cooper Kupp has been the most targeted receiver in the league, and second-year wideout Van Jefferson should also have an expanded role, so temper expectations for both Beckham (making his Rams debut) and Skowronek against San Francisco. Beckham disappointed with the Cleveland Browns before getting waived, but he was also dealing with a shoulder injury and was in a low-volume passing attack.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to get some work during Monday Night Football versus San Francisco. The veteran was recently brought in after parting ways with the Cleveland Browns and he was already foreseen to be involved in some capacity. However, there is now a bigger sense of urgency for him to become acclimated with the team's playbook, primarily with Robert Woods (knee) done for the year. Nonetheless, Beckham likely won't get his usual workload, so his fantasy ceiling is still somewhat lower than usual, meaning Cooper Kupp should continue to get plenty of looks from Matthew Stafford against the 49ers.

He is currently weighing offers from the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. Beckham became a fantasy afterthought in six games with the Browns before they waived him with a 17-232-0 line on 34 targets, but he was also playing through an AC joint sprain in a run-first offense.

The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly interested in adding wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. after he is released by the Cleveland Browns. It is unlikely a team claims him off waivers, and Beckham is said to prefer signing with a team rather than being claimed. The Seahawks have been notorious for bringing in high-profile names with off-the-field issues, so it wouldn't be a surprise for them to pursue the 29-year-old when he is officially made available. However, Beckham prefers to play for a postseason contender and doesn't seem like a great fit in the run-heavy Seattle offense that is already loaded with D.K.

Before he hits free agency, he will be subject to a waiver process, during which any NFL team can put in a claim for Beckham and the $7.25 million that he is owed over the rest of the season. Although he technically can't decide which team claims him, Schefter notes, "If a team that does not fit this criteria claims Beckham, there could be potential issues for that team, although it is unclear exactly what those issues would be." If he clears waivers unclaimed, though, the veteran wideout gets to decide where he signs. The 29-year-old has hauled in 17 catches for 232 yards this season.

The Browns attempted to trade OBJ before Tuesday's deadline but were unsuccessful, and Cleveland announced that he would no longer play for the team this year on Wednesday.

It was reported earlier that the Browns had no plans of trading the star wide receiver and that they needed to do a better job of putting Beckham in a position to make plays.

While the talent is there, the Browns' run-heavy offense may be the final impetus to forcing Beckham onto the waiver wire in season-long leagues where more consistent options exist.Nov 1 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is active for Week 8 against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers. However, the Browns will be without wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) and cornerback Denzel Ward (hamstring). Beckham battled through his shoulder issues in the Thursday night win over the Denver Broncos in Week 7, but he wasn't effective at all, catching only two of his six targets from backup quarterback Case Keenum for 23 yards. Baker Mayfield (shoulder) will be back on Sunday against Pittsburgh, but fantasy managers can't realistically expect OBJ to produce for them at less than 100 percent. He has yet to find the end zone in 2021 and hasn't caught more than five passes or gone over 79 yards in a single game this year. Beckham is a low-upside WR4/flex in this run-first offense.Oct 31 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is on track to play in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Beckham has been limited at practice this past week due to an AC joint sprain in his shoulder. The 28-year-old veteran has failed to deliver for fantasy managers so far this year. He's played in five games and he has yet to score a touchdown. Additionally, he hasn't topped 80 receiving yards or five receptions in a game yet either. He's a desperation WR3 play in Week 8.Oct 31 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) has been deemed questionable to play in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after being limited in practice all week. In addition, receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) has been ruled out after was injured before last Thursday's game. Beckham appeared to aggravate his troublesome shoulder in last week's win over the Denver Broncos, but he stayed in the game. The 28-year-old will have quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder) back this weekend, but even then, OBJ has been completely unreliable in fantasy this year with only 16 catches for 226 yards and no touchdowns in five games in this run-first offense. You can find better flex plays at receiver with more upside.Oct 29 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) will look to score his first touchdown of the season when he takes on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8. Beckham is playing through two injured shoulders, which has limited him in practice, but he is expected to be able to suit up for Week 8's divisional matchup. The veteran wideout hasn't done much in the box score this season but he does draw a plus matchup against Pittsburgh in Week 8 as the Steelers are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in 2021. Even with the advantageous matchup, Beckham will be tough to trust as anything more than a low-end WR4 against Pittsburgh this weekend.Oct 28 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder) and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulders) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. Mayfield looked fine during a limited session and is on track to return this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers after missing last Thursday's game with a fully torn labrum in his left shoulder and a fracture in his humerus bone. The 26-year-old is hoping to make it through the season before getting offseason surgery on his non-throwing shoulder. Against a tough Steelers D, he'll be a low-end QB2 for fantasy managers. Beckham played through injuries to both shoulders last week but caught just two of six targets for 23 yards. OBJ has yet to find the end zone this year and hasn't caught more than five passes for 79 yards in a single game. Even if Jarvis Landry (knee) doesn't play and Mayfield returns, it's hard to trust him as anything more than a WR4/flex at this point in this run-first offense.Oct 27 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr. Baker Mayfield
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulders) is playing through serious injuries to both of his shoulders, but he is planning to put off surgery during the season. OBJ fell hard on his sprained right shoulder just before halftime of Thursday's win over the Denver Broncos and was questionable to return in the second half, but he toughed it out and returned to the field and finished the game with only two catches on six targets for 23 yards. The 28-year-old was able to practice on Monday, which is a good sign for his Week 8 availability against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but fantasy managers are likely considering dropping him in 12-team leagues. Beckham has caught exactly two passes in three of his five games played and doesn't have more than five receptions or 79 yards in a single game and has yet to find the end zone. Things won't be any more promising for him if quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder) has to miss another game, either.Oct 25 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught two of six targets for 23 yards in a Week 7 win over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. Beckham, who was originally not expected to play through a shoulder injury, seemed to be affected by the issue as he committed a drop and slipped on another incompletion that most likely would have been caught had he remained on his feet. Beckham also aggravated his shoulder injury trying to make a diving catch and appeared to be in considerable pain, although he was able to return to the contest after halftime. Trending in the wrong direction, Beckham will be a shaky flex option in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but at least he gets 10 days to heal up now.Oct 22 · Source via Browns Odell Beckham Jr.
