Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While it's important to remember that OBJ is dealing with injuries to both his shoulders and is fighting through them, it's difficult to not get frustrated with the situation here in Cleveland. Beckham Jr. still has the talent to be a factor for fantasy football, but it is just not happening in this offense for whatever reason. There are dropped passes, miscommunications, fluke plays, and so much more that are preventing OBJ from being a relevant fantasy asset. The matchup is a good one on paper for opposing WRs, but we simply cannot trust him in our starting lineups as anything more than a FLEX play at this point. Add in Mayfield's injury on top of it all and this screams a situation that should be avoided if you have the luxury.
