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.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (hip) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He practiced in full all week but admitted that he still hasn’t gone 100% since suffering the hip injury. OBJ will be worth watching closely in Sunday’s opener against the Titans, but he should be locked into fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Odell Beckham returned to the practice field Monday. He had missed most of the previous 3 weeks while dealing with a hip pointer. HC Freddie Kitchens told Cleveland.com that Beckham had been "working on the side." The return gives Beckham nearly 2 weeks to get ready for the regular-season opener.

Browns WR Odell Beckham sat out the team portion of Wednesday's practice with a hip injury, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. OBJ was able to participate in some individual drills. "Team is not concerned about a long-term absence," Graziano adds. This sounds like a minor issue, but it'll be worth monitoring over the next couple of weeks -- especially considering Beckham's injury history and the high price fantasy drafters are paying to land him.

The Browns have reached a deal with the Giants to acquire WR Odell Beckham Jr. The deal will send 1st- and 3rd-round picks plus S Jabrill Peppers to the Giants. Beckham has 5 more years on a contract that he signed just last August, though there's no guaranteed money beyond 2020. The move obviously gives Cleveland a new #1 WR, one of the league's most talented. Beckham and WR Jarvis Landry will challenge each others' target counts in an offense that finished 2018 with lower passing volume. The Giants, meanwhile, sport no WR ahead of Sterling Shepard at the moment. We'll see what they do in free agency and the draft to address a position that's suddenly desperately shallow. Peppers joins a secondary that will also add Antoine Bethea in free agency. If Peppers and Bethea emerge as the 2 starters, the Giants might sport a lack in deep-coverage ability. The big fantasy winner here, by the way, is Cleveland 2nd-year QB Baker Mayfield.

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.
