Beckham did not have quite the first season as expected with the Browns. He never seemed to get on the same page with Baker Mayfield, causing for inconsistent production. Beckham did have a 1,000-yard season, but scored just four touchdowns and was 25th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Beckham had just two 100-yard games and didn't have one after Week 6. A new coaching staff could be a positive for Beckham, though, and a second season to mesh with Mayfield is another positive. Beckham has three of six seasons with 90-plus receptions, 1,300-plus yards and double-digit scores. Beckham is a top athlete with plus speed. He is a great big-play threat that does well after the catch and on the deep ball. He also will make the acrobatic catch. Beckham is clearly one of the elite receivers in the game. Fantasy Outlook: Beckham really was a bust last year, failing to live up to expectations. He can get it going again this year, though, if he can get on the same page with Mayfield. Beckham could be a good buy-low candidate and emerge as a legit No. 1 fantasy receiver once again. Take him as a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 and hope for him to get back to his old ways. Beckham can get around 90 receptions for 1,300 yards and 11 or so touchdowns.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a disappointing 2019 season, finishing the year 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns, which were all the second-lowest marks of his career. With former head coach Freddie Kitchens gone and replaced by former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski, a resurgence may be in the works. Stefanski, along with new general manager and executive vice president of football operations Andrew Berry, acknowledged Beckham's talent, while also stating that he was in the organization's "long-term plans" after trade rumors swirled for months. With Stefanski also vowing to put the 27-year-old in a position to "make more big plays" and turmoil with the front office seemingly behind him, Beckham may be back on track to being one of the league's most elite wideouts.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. used his social media account to shoot down trade speculation that he would end up with the Patriots after Cam Newton signed there on Sunday. A video of Beckham and Newton working out together surfaced earlier in the offseason, causing some to speculate whether the star receiver could join Newton with the Pats. In response, Beckham tweeted, "U can find me in The LAND homie! We got unfinished business." Beckham struggled through the 2019 season, his first with the Browns, finishing with 74 catches for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. That being said, the Browns don't seem particularly interested in trading the star wideout this offseason. Beckham can be treated as an upside WR2 in fantasy drafts this year.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. stressed on Twitter Monday, June 29, he's committed to playing for the Browns for at least the upcoming 2020 season. 'U can find me in The LAND homie! We got unfinished business,' Beckham wrote in a reply to Los Angeles Dodgers P Alex Wood who wrote '@obj to the Patriots before the season is done. BANK IT!'
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) is 'free and clear' following core muscle surgery, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. Stefanski added Beckham is '100 percent and looking really good.'
Fantasy Spin: Beckham will likely still need to get some reps in training camp to get back to game shape, but he stands to be a value in 2020 fantasy drafts following a 1,035-yard, four-touchdown 2019 season that was deemed a disappointment by many.
Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hernia) is "free and clear." "He's 100 percent and looking really good" following sports hernia surgery. Cleveland's offense was dysfunctional last year, mainly because of a poor offensive line, but OBJ was also playing through injury for most of the year, which contributed to his disappointing season. Beckham's fantasy cost will come down as a result -- you can grab him as more of a low-end WR1 in 2020 -- but he still has league-winning upside if he gains more chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield and stays healthy all year.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. is receiving strong praise from offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. 'He's a worker,' Van Pelt said about Beckham's participation in the offseason program. 'He loves football. He's smart as hell. He's just been a model guy this offseason.'
Fantasy Spin: OBJ was a huge disappointment in his first season in Cleveland, but he's still only 27, and if he can stay healthy, a WR1 rebound season isn't out of question. Take a shot if he starts falling too far in your draft.
Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt has been impressed by star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason. In a press conference with reporters on Wednesday, Van Pelt said that OBJ is "all in" and has been a "model guy" during the team's virtual offseason program. Drama tends to follow Beckham wherever he goes, so it is good news that he is getting along well with his new offensive coordinator. Beckham struggled in 2019, his first season with the Browns. He dealt with an injury during training camp and had a hard time developing chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield. Beckham is still rehabbing after having core muscle surgery back in January but is fully expected to be ready for the start of the 2020 season. He can be treated as an upside WR2 in fantasy drafts this summer.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has been fully involved in the virtual meetings this offseason and has been great to work with, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.
Fantasy Spin: Beckham is still one of the top receivers in the NFL and could have more success this season with a new offensive scheme. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues in 2020.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. struggled for the bulk of the 2019 season for several reasons - including a core muscle injury - but another factor that contributed to his poor first year with Cleveland was that only 59.7 percent of his targets were deemed catchable, according to Pro Football Focus. Over his first five seasons with the New York Giants, his catchable target percentage was 64.9.
Fantasy Spin: A lot of things went wrong for the Browns last season, so while this statistic would suggest Baker Mayfield is to blame, the truth of the matter is that he was only part of the problem. Beckham was rarely ever healthy and the offensive line didn't hold up its end of the bargain either, contributing to a number of Mayfield's off-target throws. Beckham should be expected to bounce back in a big way and be a strong WR1 option in 2020, especially if he can avoid another injury-plagued campaign.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hernia) stated that he will be "bigger, faster, stronger" this season after having surgery in January for a sports hernia. The veteran wideout is coming off one of the worst campaigns of his career in his first season with the Browns, finishing 2019 with 74 catches for 1,035 yards and only four touchdowns. But Beckham dealt with the nagging injury all of last season while constant trade rumors surrounded him. With new head coach Eric Stefanski looking to make him a part of the team's long-term plans, we could see a return to the elite category in 2020 in his second year working with quarterback Baker Mayfield. OBJ could come at a nice discount this fall with WR1 bounce-back upside.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will be a "long-term member of the organization," according to general manager Andrew Berry. Berry praised the star wideout, labeling him a "fantastic player" while also stating that he was enjoying how well Beckham has adjusted to the new staff. Beckham had 74 receptions and only four touchdowns last season, which were both the second-lowest marks of his career. The 27-year-old has been the topic of trade rumblings over the last few weeks, with the most recent rumored trade destination being in Minnesota, the former team of new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has not been involved in any trade talks this offseason, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Beckham has posted at least 1,000 yards in five of his first six seasons in the NFL but has six touchdowns or less in each of the last three seasons. He remains one of the better receivers in the league and should be a weekly starting fantasy option.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr., likely won't be traded to the Minnesota Vikings as recently rumored, but sources believe it's only a matter of time before Beckham is dealt as he 'isn't a good fit with quarterback Baker Mayfield.'
Fantasy Spin: There will be little argument from fantasy GMs who spent a high pick on OBJ last summer only to see him struggle through a 74-catch, 1,035-yard, four-touchdown season that ranked 31st in total fantasy points at the position. It figures to only get better in Year 2, but be very wary of putting much stock in him as a WR1.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr., continuing an ongoing storyline, is not being traded, according to Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta. He told Cleveland media Thursday, April 16, the team is not exploring trade options for Beckham.
Fantasy Spin: Beckham's first year in Cleveland wasn't anything special by Beckham standards, as he caught 74 balls for 1,035 yards and four TDs and was a top-30 WR in standard PPR scoring. In early fantasy drafts, OBJ, who still has tremendous upside, is going around 40th overall, 12th among wideouts, which is a fair place for him after failing to hit double-digit TDs in each of the past three seasons.
Contrary to previous reports, the Minnesota Vikings have not had any trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns surrounding Cleveland WR Odell Beckham Jr., reports Charles Robinson, of Yahoo! Sports.
The Minnesota Vikings haven't had any trade talks with the Cleveland Browns involving wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to sources. The Browns haven't received any calls on Beckham and haven't had any talks about trade compensation. Cleveland doesn't have OBJ on the trade block. This comes after rumors spread Wednesday that the two sides had agreed on a trade to ship Beckham to Minnesota in exchange for draft picks. The Vikings traded Stefon Diggs to the Bills this offseason, so they're certainly in the market for a receiver, but they'll likely address that need in the draft. Beckham is heading into his second year in Cleveland after a disappointing 2019 season that saw him score just four touchdowns. He still had over 1,000 yards receiving, though, and could easily bounce back as a strong WR1 that could come at a discount in fantasy drafts.
The Minnesota Vikings may be interested in trading for Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr., according to WFAN 660's Marc Malusis. He reports the two sides have had discussions that would send OBJ from Cleveland to Minnesota for second- and fifth-round draft picks next year.
Fantasy Spin: Any fire to the smoke? Time will tell, but OBJ would continue to have WR1 potential catching passes from QB Kirk Cousins.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (core injury) is progressing well in his rehab, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. In regards to both Beckham and Jarvis Landry's respective rehabs from offseason surgery, Stefanski told reporters, Both those guys are exactly where they need to be in terms of rehab progression." Beckham had surgery to repair a core muscle injury in late January but appears to be in no danger of missing games once the 2020 season kicks off. After a down year, Beckham needs to be treated as a WR2 with upside in fantasy drafts.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) is on track in his rehabilitation from core muscle surgery performed in January, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Fantasy Spin: Beckham should be ready to participate in offseason workouts soon, provided that he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Even though he will be participating in a new offensive scheme in 2020, Beckham should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy formats as one of the league's top receivers.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (abdomen), who had surgery on Jan. 21 on a core muscle, posted a video on his Instagram of him running on a treadmill on Thursday. A league sources estimates that Beckham will be healthy in a month. There's no guarantee that OBJ will take part in the offseason program, which begins on April 6 for teams with new head coaches. Cleveland's new offensive system will challenge quarterback Baker Mayfield, who won't be able to work with his top receivers until training camp. If Beckham and Mayfield can get on the same page, they should have a good shot to improve on their numbers last season. However, Beckham will be seen as more of a low-end WR1 with upside until the Browns prove us wrong.
Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) should be completely recovered from his core muscle surgery in about a month, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: It appears like Beckham should be ready of offseason workouts as long as he does not suffer a setback. He will be working under a new offensive scheme next season but is still one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues in 2020.
