2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL POSTCRIPT: ODELL BECKHAM JR. WR NEW YORK GIANTS

For the fourth time in five NFL seasons, New York Giants ace wideout Odell Beckham Jr. will fail to play in all 16 games as he wound up sitting the last four contests of 2019 due to a serious quad injury.  Injuries and missed time have gone hand-in-hand with Beckham's stellar receiving ability and it is this setup that he will take into drafts next summer where he should drop into firm Round 2 territory for the first time since bursting onto the NFL scene.  In terms of his 2018 production, Beckham was every bit the WR 1 he always has been when on the field as he grabbed 77 balls for 1,052 yards and 6 scores but again we are talking about more missed time undermining the overall product.  Since Beckham's injuries are becoming more than a trend, it is impossible to make him a first round pick in fantasy football drafts next summer given this crucial negative.  As it is, we initially already have Antonio Brown, Adam Thielen, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, and Julio Jones all ranked ahead of Beckham for 2019 and you could make the argument that JuJu Smith-Schuster and Tyreek Hill should be above him as well.  Thus, a second round grade should be a certainty for Beckham next season and even then he carries tremendous risk to continue missing outings.
