Love Him Or Hate Him, It Is Time To Trade For Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham Jr has been one of the most consistent wide receivers when it comes to fantasy football in recent years.

Since he was selected by the New York Giants with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Beckham Jr has matured into a household name – making a name for himself through some incredible playmaking. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Beckham make a positive impact in the coming months…

2018 has not been his year so far though and it is now time to trade for Beckham whilst his value is low.

There’s a pretty good chance that Beckham’s current owner is starting to consider a move – the Giants wideout has scored just one receiving touchdown through six weeks. He is on track to top the 1,000 receiving yards mark but his ineffectiveness in the red zone is of some concern.

However, all of that might be about to change. With rookie running back Saquon Barkley keeping defences honest, space will open up in the passing game.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning cannot be this bad for the entire season and Beckham will flourish in the coming weeks. A favourable matchup with the Atlanta Falcons awaits before another nice-looking clash with the Washington Redskins before New York’s bye week.

Beckham’s yards per game average isn’t too dissimilar to previous years; it is only the lack of touchdowns that is an issue.

If you are deep at the running back position, it might be worth offering up a competent runner in exchange for the Giants man. He is on track to record 100 receptions this campaign – which would be his second-most since making the step up to the National Football League.

The Giants are unlikely to win many games this year but that should keep Beckham fantasy-relevant throughout the entire season. Garbage points are crucial when it comes to winning fantasy matchups and Beckham tends to see plenty of targets and catches when games are on the line.

As of October 19th, New York are 200/1 in NFL betting odds for Super Bowl glory this year and their only hope lies with Beckham making game-changing plays.

In terms of receiving yards, Beckham has recorded 506 yards through six weeks – putting him in the top 10 wide receivers in the NFL.

With fantasy owners growing frustrated, a sub-par effort against a leaky Falcons defensive unit this weekend could be the final straw. Make your move now; Beckham will almost certainly start scoring touchdowns in the second half of the season.

The New York Giants were once regarded as one of the toughest teams in the National Football League but Big Blue have lost their way in recent years. Odell Beckham Jr is one of two genuine class acts on this roster and he is well worth trading for on fantasy football.

A high scoring week against Atlanta may see his stock rise but Beckham is worth the investment. He could be the difference between making the playoffs and winning your fantasy championship.
