Odell Beckham Jr. Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Rams have announced that they've agreed to terms with WR Odell Beckham Jr. That should make OBJ a top-3 wideout in 1 of the league's strongest offenses the rest of the way. Beckham's arrival effectively kills Van Jefferson's fantasy relevance. We'll see about the impact on fantasy outlooks for WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, as well as TE Tyler Higbee. Beckham will have a hard time delivering regular fantasy-starter production in such a crowded offense, but he'll present weekly upside at least into WR3 range.

WR Odell Beckham went unclaimed on waivers. This was expected since any team that claimed Beckham would have owed him $7.25 million for the rest of the season. Now OBJ is a free agent and can negotiate with teams of his choosing. Expect him to sign within the next day or 2.

The Browns and WR Odell Beckham Jr. have agreed to terms that will allow him to hit waivers on Monday. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Browns are shaving the final 2 years off his contract. If Beckham clears waivers without being claimed, he'd become a free agent at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday afternoon.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports that the Browns and WR Odell Beckham Jr. have negotiated an end to his time in Cleveland. The team reportedly plans to waive Beckham on Friday. If Beckham passes through waivers without getting claimed, he'd then be free to sign with any team. Given that no franchise apparently made a solid enough offer -- or any offer? -- to acquire Beckham and his contract before the trade deadline, it's certainly no lock that he'll be claimed on waivers. We'd certainly bet on Beckham landing somewhere with opportunity, though. That makes him worth holding on fantasy rosters where possible for now. His pending departure leaves targets available in Cleveland, with Jarvis Landry and Donovan Peoples-Jones likely the primary beneficiaries.

Browns WR Odell Beckham will be excused from practice again on Thursday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. Browns GM Andrew Berry and Beckham's agent are reportedly talking through the situation, but it seems like this is heading toward Beckham getting released. Don't expect OBJ to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday.

Insider Michael Silver reports that Browns HC Kevin Stefanski told his team today that WR Odell Beckham is "essentially not on the team right now." Stefanski didn't reveal much in his press conference, only confirming that Beckham was excused from Wednesday's practice and that the 2 haven't spoken over the past 24 hours. We'll continue to keep an eye on this situation, but it sure seems like Beckham's time with the Browns might be over. His absence would leave Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones as Cleveland's top 3 WRs. (Peoples-Jones is expected to return to practice from his groin injury today.)

Browns WR Odell Beckham was excused from Wednesday's practice, USA Today's Josina Anderson reports. We have no other details at this point. Beckham was the subject of trade rumors leading up to Tuesday's deadline. And his father made social-media waves by posting a video of plays when QB Baker Mayfield missed or failed to throw to an open Beckham. We'll see where this goes. HC Kevin Stefanski is scheduled to address the media at 1 pm ET today.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week. With both Beckham and his QB playing through shoulder injuries, he’s a shaky fantasy option.

Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. "should be good to go today" vs. the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Beckham is dealing with an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, but he played through it in last Thursday night's win over Denver.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week. We’re expecting Beckham to play, but he’s a shaky fantasy option with both he and his QB dealing with shoulder injuries.

The forecast for tonight's Broncos-Browns game calls for sustained winds up to 20 mph and gusts around 30 mph. That's enough to impact some longer throws and kicks -- and another reason to expect this to be a low-scoring game.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Broncos. It's a surprise after reports over the past 24 hours that Beckham has a Grade 3 AC joint injury and was facing an "uphill battle" to play tonight. He might be limited and is at risk of re-injuring that shoulder.

NFL Network's James Palmer hears that it'll be an "uphill battle" for Browns WR Odell Beckham (shoulder) to play vs. the Broncos tonight. Beckham is reportedly dealing with a Grade 3 AC joint injury. His status beyond Week 7 is uncertain. WR Jarvis Landry, meanwhile, has a "very good chance" to be activated from IR and return from his knee injury tonight, according to Palmer. There would be targets up for grabs with Beckham out. But Landry would be a risky fantasy play in his first game back and with Case Keenum under center.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. He didn't practice at all this week. Insider Josina Anderson reports that Beckham suffered a Grade 3 AC joint injury -- the most severe -- in last week's loss to the Cardinals. He's reportedly going to try to play through it and is a game-time decision for tomorrow night. Between his shoulder injury and QB Baker Mayfield's absence, Beckham is an extremely shaky Week 7 fantasy play.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos and that QB Case Keenum will get the start. "Baker obviously wants to be out there but just couldn’t make it on a short week," Stefanski said. “We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible." We'll see if Mayfield can make it back for Week 8. Keenum, meanwhile, will make his 1st start since Week 17 of the 2019 season. The 33-year-old has 62 career starts under his belt and sports a 62.3% completion rate, 6.9 yards-per-attempt average and 75 TDs vs. 47 INTs. Keenum is a capable backup but still a downgrade from Mayfield.
