After a slow start where some fantasy managers left him for dead, Beckham is suddenly a top-12 wide receiver in fantasy. Now, to be fair, it hasn't all been peachy for his managers, as he's tallied 11.4 fantasy points or less in three of the five games. With the low-volume nature of the offense, that'll continue to be a thing, but it's nice to see him tally 17 targets over the last two weeks. Wide receivers have seen a very-high 62.2 percent target share against the Steelers this year, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league, and it makes sense when you see they've struggled to this point. As mentioned in the Hunt notes, the Steelers have allowed 26.5 more PPR points per game to wide receivers than they have to running backs, which is the third-biggest gap in the league. Beckham lines up on both sides of the formation, but mostly at LWR, which means he'll see the most of Steven Nelson in coverage. While Nelson was fantastic last year, he's struggled out of the gate in 2020, allowing 13-of-22 passing for 213 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. He has also intercepted two passes, so it hasn't been all bad, either. But again, opponents have targeted wide receivers 62 percent of the time, which bodes well for Beckham, who's the clear No. 1 target in this offense right now. Knowing they're coming off a game where they allowed Travis Fulgham 10/152/1, this might not be the tough matchup it was for wide receivers last year when Beckham posted just 7/89/0... in two games combined against them despite seeing 16 targets. Beckham is far from a sure thing in the run-first offense but keep him in lineups as a WR2 while he rides a hot streak.

Odell Beckham tore his ACL in Week 7, out for the season

WR Odell Beckham tore his ACL in Sunday’s Week 7 win over the Bengals. He confirmed through a text with NFL independent reporter Josina Anderson.

Fantasy Impact

As feared, Beckham tore his ACL in Sunday’s Week 7 win over the Bengals. He will be placed on injured reserve and rehab towards a full recovery for 2021. “Odell Beckham is set to earn $15.75 million in total compensation next year from the Browns, $13 million is guaranteed for injury and converts to a full guarantee if he’s on the roster the third day of the league year, per Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network. The 27-year-old finishes the 2020 campaign with 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns. Look for Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones to see additional snaps with Beckham sidelined for the year.
