Odell Beckham Jr. has no plans to opt out, despite comments

Odell Beckham Jr. was quoted in a WSJ article saying “I just feel like the season shouldn’t happen and I’m prepared for it to not happen and I wouldn’t mind not having it. We’re not ready for the season, so why are we trying to push forward?‘' That interview was two weeks ago but just published on Monday morning. He has said that since seeing how safe the Browns facility is, he has no plans to opt out of the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

Beckham Jr. caused a lot of controversy with his initial quote about not wanting to play in 2020, raising speculation that the superstar receiver may opt out. He quickly went in damage control mode and backtracked on his quotes, saying that he still plans to play in 2020. Beckham is coming off a career low in receptions (74) and yards (1,035) but still being drafted as a WR1 in most leagues. Our expert consensus rankings have him as the 12th overall wide receiver this year but he has arguably the highest ceiling of any player in the league.

He had a disappointing first campaign with the Browns in 2019, hauling in 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns across 16 games. OBJ is deemed fully healthy and is borderline WR1 in all standard leagues. The 27-year-old is currently 11th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
