New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wasn't able to get anything going on Thursday night. Despite being targeted 10 times and hauling in six receptions, Beckham looked rough in this one, finishing with only 44 receiving yards in addition to a fumble. With the team having issues offensively outside of rookie running back Saquon Barkley, the star wideout has been ineffective all season, finding the end zone only once throughout the first five weeks. Unless quarterback Eli Manning can get some protection and find his accuracy, you may want to consider putting Beckham on the trade block, especially while the team continues to experience drama off the field.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been making headlines on and off the field heading into the Giants short-week matchup against the Eagles this Thursday. Beckham Jr. caught eight passes for 131 yards with one touchdown and also threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to running back Saquon Barkley in a loss to the Panthers. He also has been critical of the Giants offense off the field and the team's season is already in the balance at 1-4. Beckham Jr., however, will have an excellent matchup against an Eagles defense that has already allowed four different opposing receivers to rack up 100 yards or more in a game. They have surrendered seven touchdowns to receivers and nine different receivers have scored 10 or more fantasy points against them. An elite talent like Beckham Jr. should be licking his chops and will be a top-10 play among wide receivers for Week 6.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. enjoyed a breakout performance against the Panthers, catching eight passes for 131 yards and one touchdown. Beckham Jr. also got involved on a trick play, catching a pass from quarterback Eli Manning and then threw a beautiful pass to running back Saquon Barkley for a 57-yard touchdown pass. These are the types of electric plays that the Giants are capable of and Beckham Jr. is an elite talent in fantasy. But the Giants quarterback Eli Manning has struggled getting the ball into the hands of his playmakers at times and the team is now 1-4. Beckham Jr. will continue to be a WR1 heading into Week 6.
