Odell Beckham Jr. Fantasy Football News 2018

Giants WR Odell Beckham (ankle) participated in individual drills during Thursday's minicamp session, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Beckham is 6-and-a-half months removed from the fractured ankle that ended his 2017 campaign in Week 5. We haven't yet heard that he's received full medical clearance, but he's obviously making progress. OBJ should be a full-go by the time training camp rolls around.

Giants WR Odell Beckham showed up for the start of the team's offseason program on Monday. It's at least a small olive branch amid an offseason of trade rumors and holdout threats. The drama isn't necessarily over yet. The trade rumors figure to persist at least until the NFL Draft is over. And Beckham could still stage a training camp holdout if he doesn't get a new contract. But the odds that he's a Giant in 2018 look better now than they did a couple of weeks ago.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Giants WR Odell Beckham "will not set foot on a field without a new contract extension agreed to." He's entering the final year of his rookie deal and is set to earn about $8.46 million, leaving him "just" 11th at his position in 2018 salary. Beckham's situation is complicated by his off-field antics, which include a recent viral video that appeared to show him partaking in some illegal substances. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation but would ultimately be surprised if Beckham misses time due to contract issues. He's a fine target in the back half of the 1st round of early best-ball drafts.

Giants HC Pat Shurmur said from the Combine on Wednesday that he doesn't know if WR Odell Beckham will be ready for training camp. He's still rehabbing the fractured left ankle he suffered on October 8. The fact that he's uncertain for the start of camp nearly 10 months later is a reminder of how serious the injury was. We'll continue to keep a close eye on OBJ's progress.

Giants HC Ben McAdoo announced Monday that WR Odell Beckham will undergo surgery on his fractured ankle and miss the rest of the season. He finishes with a 25-302-3 line in 4 appearances.

He should be ready in plenty of time for the start of the 2018 campaign, which is currently scheduled to be a contract year for a guy who will still be only 25.

Giants WR Odell Beckham suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

We'll continue to pass along updates as we get them.

He dislocated a finger -- which McAdoo said is "sore" -- and sprained the same ankle that he hurt back in August during Sunday's loss to the Bucs.
