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 is on track in his recovery from October's torn ACL, according to HC Kevin Stefanski. "He's progressing very well," Stefanski told reporters Tuesday. "He's trending in the right direction." It's standard offseason rhetoric -- but better than hearing about a setback. Beckham will be nearly 11 months removed from the injury when the 2021 season kicks off, so it's fair to expect him to be at least close to 100%. We'll continue to monitor his progress.
Browns WR Odell Beckham has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2020 season. A smooth rehab should have him ready for the start of the 2021 campaign. His absence leaves Jarvis Landry as Cleveland's clear top WR the rest of the way. Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones look like the #2 and #3 WRs. Higgins ran a route on 97% of QB Baker Mayfield's drop backs yesterday, posting a 6-110 line on 6 targets. Peoples-Jones posted a 72% route rate and 3-56-1 line on 3 targets. Higgins is worth grabbing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams. Peoples-Jones is a deeper-league stash.
Browns WR Odell Beckham is "feared to have suffered a major knee injury," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Beckham is scheduled for an MRI on the left knee on Monday morning to get an official diagnosis. We should know his fate by tomorrow afternoon. Beckham's absence would seemingly leave Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones as Cleveland's #2 and #3 WRs behind Jarvis Landry.
Browns WR Odell Beckham appeared to suffer a knee injury trying to make a tackle after a Baker Mayfield INT in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bengals. He limped off to the locker room with trainers. Stay tuned for an update.
Update: The Browns are calling Beckham questionable to return.
Update: Beckham has been ruled out for the rest of the game. That leaves Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins as Cleveland's top 2 WRs.
Can Ja'Marr Chase go from opting out of 2020 to leading all WRs off the NFL Draft board in 2021? He'll be just 1 of many potential impact fantasy assets we profile over the next couple of months.9:04am EDT 4/20/21 Read More
