Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Beckham played through a core muscle injury for most of the 2019 season. He underwent surgery in January of 2020 and was declared “100%” by HC Kevin Stefanski in late June.
  • A torn left ACL ended his 2020 season in Week 7. He underwent surgery on November 10.
  • Prior to that, Beckham underwhelmed as a fantasy asset. In 6 full games, he finished as the WR77, WR19, WR48, WR1, WR41 and WR66. That stretch turned up 23-319-3 on 42 targets.
  • A low, 54.7% catch rate really stands out. He dropped only 1 pass but was targeted deeper down field with an average depth of target of 14.1 — a career-high. His connection with Baker Mayfield routinely looked off.
  • Beckham’s WR1 finish (at Dallas) was boosted by a 50-yard rushing TD. He recorded 3 carries on the season; 3 back in 2019 (16 games).
  • Beckham was decently efficient, ranking 38th among 99 WRs with 40+ targets in yards per route run (1.79).
  • He garnered a 24.7% target share in his 6 full games for a thin, low-volume pass offense.
  • For comparison, Jarvis Landry’s target share stood at 19.4% over the same stretch.
  • Cleveland didn’t make any significant WR/TE upgrades in the spring. The nucleus of this offense, including HC Kevin Stefanski and OC Alex Van Pelt, return.
  • With Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, a strong, high-volume running game will return to the Browns in ’21. Last year, the team ranked 4th in rush attempts; 4th in run rate.
  • Long-time Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot wrote the following over the offseason: "I'm of the mind that Beckham would have flourished in the second half [of 2020] once Baker Mayfield hit his stride. I think they'll be dynamite together, especially now that Mayfield has the confidence to run this offense at a high level.”
  • Mayfield rebounded from a down 2019 to post career-bests in QB rating (95.9), QBR (72.2) and INT rate (1.6%).
  • Beckham was floated as a trade candidate early in the offseason, but barring a surprise, he’ll return for a 3rd season in Cleveland.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line

After posting 1,035 yards in his debut season with the Browns, Beckham’s progress was slowed by a torn ACL last fall. Beckham saw heavy downfield usage in year 1 under HC Kevin Stefanski and a still-developing Baker Mayfield.

Now 28, Beckham enters a critical season. His health will be worth monitoring, but he’s expected to be 100% for Week 1. Plus, the fact that Cleveland will put him right back in a featured role means they have some level of trust in the 3-time Pro Bowler.

If Beckham’s ADP stays in the Round 7 range, he’ll be worth the risk as a WR3.

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.
