Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. ESPN's Dan Graziano confirmed on Friday morning that OBJ is on track to make his 2021 debut vs. the Bears this weekend, barring a setback between now and then. OC Alex Van Pelt suggested that Beckham will be on some type of snap count on Sunday. But, especially with WR Jarvis Landry out, Beckham could still see plenty of volume. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 for this week.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) "has had a good week of practice" and is on track to play vs. the Bears on Sunday "barring an unforeseen setback between now and game time," ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Beckham has been trending toward making his 2021 debut this weekend since putting in his first full practice of the year on Wednesday. OC Alex Van Pelt suggested that Beckham will be on some type of snap count in Week 3, though, which lowers his fantasy ceiling and floor.

Browns OC Alex Van Pelt called WR Odell Beckham (knee) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Bears. OBJ was supposedly a game-time decision for the opener before being scratched. He was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice, so he seems to be trending in the right direction. "He's looked good so far in practice," Van Pelt said. "We’ll see how he feels later in the week, but we’re hoping." Van Pelt also hinted that Beckham will be on a snap count if he plays this weekend. "Definitely have to be smart with his reps. Can’t expect him to come out and have a huge day first time back, we’ve just got to ease him back into it if he does make it to the game," Van Pelt said. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. For now, Beckham looks like a risk/reward WR3 for Week 3.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said WR Odell Beckham (knee) will be "full go" in Wednesday's practice. Beckham has been listed as limited in every practice so far, so this is clearly a step forward. We'll see if he's ready to make his debut vs. the Bears this weekend. Cleveland needs him with WR Jarvis Landry out.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not play Sunday against the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Beckham missed Week 1 as well, despite reported optimism leading up to game day. We'll see about his participation in Week 3 practices.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) is INACTIVE for today’s game against the Chiefs. It’s a major surprise after Beckham trended in a positive direction throughout August. We assume he’ll debut next week, but we’ll see. Beckham’s absence today should move WR Donovan Peoples-Jones into the starting lineup. WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper also get target boosts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) is expected to play "without limitations" against the Chiefs today, "assuming warmups go well and he feels good." Reports on Beckham's Week 1 status have varied a bit, but we're ultimately expecting him to play something close to his usual role.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) is expected to play vs. the Chiefs today, "assuming there are no issues in the morning." Beckham remained limited in practice all week coming off last year's torn ACL and is officially listed as questionable. We won't be surprised if his snaps are a bit limited today, making him more of a WR3 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Chiefs after a limited week of practice. HC Kevin Stefanski wouldn't say when asked Friday whether Beckham will play. But it'd be a surprise if he didn't after a summer full of positive reports on his recovery from last year's torn ACL. Browns-Chiefs doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday, but we should get an update on Beckham that morning.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (ACL) is expected to play a "significant amount" in Sunday's opener vs. the Chiefs, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. "It’s remarkable that Beckham looks as good as he does only 10 months out, but he’s proving to be quite the freak of nature," Cabot writes. "He’s been running full speed for months, cutting on a dime, and leaping high for receptions." OBJ will still carry a bit more risk than usual in his 1st action since last October's torn ACL. But he'll be worth getting in most fantasy lineups in what should be a shootout vs. Kansas City.

Browns WR Odell Beckham took part in 11 on 11 at Thursday’s practice. While we won't see OBJ this preseason, Thursday marks another positive step in his return from November ACL surgery. Cleveland opens the regular season with a huge matchup at Kansas City on September 12.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (ACL rehab) took his first reps in 7 on 7s on Wednesday. That marked the first time he’s moved beyond individual/positional drills. “I think he’s done a nice job in the meeting rooms, walk through, has a much better understanding in Year 2 of the scheme or that type of thing,” HC Kevin Stefanski said. “And then he’s getting good work in. It’s work that happens in the building, happens out on the practice fields. It’ll increase as we go but I think he’s working really hard everywhere – meeting room, stuff they’re doing in the weight room. I think it just keeps showing up. The guy is battling. He’s working very hard.” OBJ remains on track to play Week 1 against Kansas City. We’ll see if we get any word on whether he’ll be limited as Cleveland’s opener draws near. Beckham carries some appeal at a WR30 price.

Don't be surprised if Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has a quiet start to training camp. “With Odell, very similar to a lot of guys, they have an individual plan that’s tailored to them and where they are in their rehab,” HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday, via Mary Kay Cabot of “We’ll bring him along at the discretion of our doctors, our medical team, and Odell, and see how he’s feeling. I had a good meeting with him last night. He’s doing well.” We'll keep an eye on Beckham reports going forward, but it's obviously good that he avoided the PUP list to begin camp. Offseason reports on the health of his knee have been positive as well.

Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has passed his physical and will not have any restrictions to open training camp, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Cleveland manage his practice time and preseason exposure, but Beckham has been generating positive off-season buzz on the field. We’ll keep tracking reports on the star WR.

Browns WR Odell Beckham took the field for minicamp practice on Tuesday for the first time since tearing his ACL last October. He was held out of full-team work but participated in individual drills without a brace or wrap on that surgically repaired knee. "He looked good to me," HC Kevin Stefanski said. It's still uncertain if Beckham will be a full-go for the start of training camp -- but he's trending toward being ready come Week 1.

Browns WR Odell Beckham is on track in his recovery from October's torn ACL, according to HC Kevin Stefanski. "He's progressing very well," Stefanski told reporters Tuesday. "He's trending in the right direction." It's standard offseason rhetoric -- but better than hearing about a setback. Beckham will be nearly 11 months removed from the injury when the 2021 season kicks off, so it's fair to expect him to be at least close to 100%. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Browns WR Odell Beckham has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2020 season. A smooth rehab should have him ready for the start of the 2021 campaign. His absence leaves Jarvis Landry as Cleveland's clear top WR the rest of the way. Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones look like the #2 and #3 WRs. Higgins ran a route on 97% of QB Baker Mayfield's drop backs yesterday, posting a 6-110 line on 6 targets. Peoples-Jones posted a 72% route rate and 3-56-1 line on 3 targets. Higgins is worth grabbing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams. Peoples-Jones is a deeper-league stash.
