Beckham OUT for Week 14 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) is out for Week 17. WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram will again serve as QB Eli Manning’s top 2 targets against a Cowboys team that figures to rest some defensive starters.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He's unlikely to play in this weekend's finale against the Cowboys, again leaving WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram as QB Eli Manning's top 2 targets.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. That will once again leave Sterling Shepard as the de facto lead wideout. Shepard absorbed 9 targets in that role last week but caught just 2 balls for the 2nd straight game. Beckham's absence helps the volume outlook but doesn't turn Shepard into a strong option. TE Evan Engram, on the other hand, has topped 70 receiving yards in each of the 2 games Beckham has missed -- including last week's 12-target, 8-catch outing. He gets a better matchup than his WR teammates against a Colts D that ranks 7th worst vs. TEs in our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz considers Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) "likely" to miss the final 2 games of the season. Beckham's quad contusion is "showing little or no improvement." And the Giants, of course, have no reason to push him back out there. TE Evan Engram has been the biggest beneficiary of Beckham's absence over the past 2 weeks, totaling 17 targets, 11 catches and 152 yards.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) will not practice on Wednesday, HC Pat Shurmur said. OBJ has been sidelined since putting in a limited practice exactly a week ago. His availability for this weekend's game against the Colts is uncertain.
