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.

Browns WR Odell Beckham underwent core muscle surgery on Tuesday, the team announced. He reportedly played the entire 2019 campaign with a sports hernia. That helps to explain OBJ's disappointing season, although there were certainly other issues. We'll keep an eye on his rehab -- and then how he's fitting into new HC Kevin Stefanski's offense. Beckham could be a value in 2020 fantasy drafts and is an interesting trade target in dynasty leagues this offseason.

Browns WR Odell Beckham is questionable for today's finale against the Bengals primarily because of food poisoning late in the week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. But Rapoport adds that "the believe is his condition has improved enough so he can be on the field today." Sounds like we could very well get a weakened version of Beckham, though -- from the already disappointing version we've gotten all year.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Browns WR Odell Beckham is "playing through a painful sports hernia that will need surgery after the season." That couldn't certainly help to explain why the star WR has underwhelmed all year. Beckham indicated earlier this week that the issue has dogged him since training camp. Beckham remains a fantasy starter for today's matchup against the Bengals. But you might want to consider this news as you make the close calls to finalize your Week 14 lineup.

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.
