Odell Beckham Jr. Injury Bug Persists, Placed On The Active/PUP List

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (undisclosed) appears to be working through minor injuries to start training camp. The Dolphins placed Beckham on the active/PUP list on Tuesday. Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network indicated that this appears to be minor and part of the plan to ease Beckham back into football. After all, Beckham is a 31-year-old wide receiver who has not played a full season since 2019. After catching 35 balls for 565 yards and three touchdowns with the Ravens in 2023, Beckham will look to be a solid third option in the high-flying Miami offense in 2024. Unfortunately, the days of extreme production from Beckham are likely behind us. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle will undoubtedly steal the show in this offense when healthy. Not to mention, rookie Malik Washington could see significant playing time. It is better to pass on Beckham in fantasy this year, but the veteran remains an option in best ball or deep-league formats.

Odell Beckham Jr. Signing One-Year Deal With Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are signing veteran free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to a one-year deal worth up to $8.25 million, according to Tom Pelissero. The three-time Pro Bowler has been linked to Miami for much of the offseason, and he finally found his home for the 2024 season on Friday. While this is an exciting signing for the former superstar, fantasy football expectations should be tempered. The 31-year-old has not reached the 600-yard mark in a single season since 2019, and he will now compete with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for targets. He's a nice depth boost for Mike McDaniel's offense, but he is nothing more than a late-round flyer in 2024 fantasy drafts. Despite playing in 14 games for the Ravens last year, he caught just 35 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns, finishing as the WR63 in PPR leagues.

"Nothing Imminent" Between Dolphins, Odell Beckham Jr.

There is "nothing imminent" on an agreement between the Miami Dolphins and free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to general manager Chris Grier. Beckham was in the facilities a few weeks ago to meet with the Dolphins and an offer was made, but it doesn't sound like the two sides are particularly close to getting anything done. OBJ would offer some more receiving depth for the Dolphins behind one of the best one-two receiver punches in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle if he were to sign with Miami. The 31-year-old former 12th overall pick of the New York Giants in 2014 out of LSU is clearly past his prime due to several significant lower-body injuries, but he can still splash for some big games as a deep threat. Beckham had 35 catches for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 14 regular-season games (six starts) in Baltimore in 2023.

Dolphins Still Looking To Sign Odell Beckham Jr.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, speaking on Friday's edition of NFL Live, the Dolphins are "trying pretty hard" to land free agent wideout Odell Beckham Jr. "They've made him at least one contract offer, possibly two," reported Fowler. "There has not been that financial gulf bridged." The 31-year-old sat out in 2022 after injuring his knee in Super Bowl LVI. However, he returned for the 2023-24 campaign, amassing 35 catches for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 14 regular season games. Nonetheless, Beckham could wait things out before signing with a team. But if he lands in Miami, he could have difficulty getting routinely involved.

Dolphins Have Made Offer To Odell Beckham Jr.

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said at the NFL owners meetings that the Dolphins made an offer to free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., but "business takes time." There remains a gap in the financials on both sides, but the door remains very much open if Beckham decides he wants to sign with Miami in 2024. The 31-year-old veteran wideout had a good visit with the team last Thursday, but the two sides weren't able to work something out. OBJ, who is no longer in peak form after several serious lower-body injuries, caught only 35 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games with the Baltimore Ravens in 2023. If he were to land in South Beach, he'd likely serve as the No. 3 behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, leaving him limited deep opportunities down the field.

Dolphins Hope To Sign Odell Beckham Jr.

The Miami Dolphins' meeting with free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went well on Thursday, according to a team source. The Dolphins were pleased with how the meeting went and hope to sign Beckham. The 31-year-old former 12th overall pick by the New York Giants in 2014 out of LSU won't return to Baltimore after he caught 35 of his 64 targets for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 14 regular-season games (six starts) in 2023. Moving to Miami's high-scoring offense would be good for OBJ's production, but he'd still be at least a distant third on the receiving pecking order behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Beckham had five 1,000-yard seasons in his first six NFL seasons, but then the injuries hit. He'd be more intriguing from a fantasy perspective if he lands in Miami but only as a boom/bust option in deeper leagues.

Dolphins Showing Interest In Odell Beckham Jr.

The Miami Dolphins appear to be a possible landing spot for a free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to Barry Jackson. The veteran wideout was recently released by the Baltimore Ravens. Beckham is clearly not in his prime anymore, but he can still contribute to an NFL roster. Last season, Beckham finished with 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games. He could be an interesting third option behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle on the Dolphins offense.

Odell Beckham Jr. Unlikely To Return To Ravens

Free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. appears to be moving on from the Baltimore Ravens. The veteran wideout was already a free agent, but the possibility of him returning to Baltimore appears to be over. Beckham recently made a social media post thanking the fanbase of Baltimore. The 31-year-old is not the same receiver he was in his prime, but can still contribute at a high level. He has finished with over 500 receiving yards in each of his last two seasons. There should still be organizations out there looking to add a player of Beckham's caliber, but it seems his time in Baltimore is over.

Odell Beckham Jr. Officially A Free Agent

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was officially released on Wednesday night with a post-June 1 designation. Beckham's dead money will spread over two years, while the Ravens won't see the salary cap relief until June 2. After signing a one-year, $15 million deal with Baltimore last offseason, the 31-year-old veteran pass-catcher disappointed with 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns on 64 targets in 14 regular-season games (six starts). The only real reliable pass-catchers in Baltimore were rookie Zay Flowers and tight end Mark Andrews. The Ravens could still re-sign OBJ, but if he were to return, he'd have a limited role behind Flowers, Andrews and Rashod Bateman in the passing game. Beckham should land with another team, but his days of being a big part of an offense are likely over.

Ravens, Odell Beckham Jr. Staying In Communication

The Baltimore Ravens and impending free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. have stayed in touch this offseason, although it remains uncertain if Beckham will return to the team in 2024. OBJ had only 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns in Baltimore in 2023 while providing veteran leadership for the receiver room. The Ravens re-signed Nelson Agholor earlier this month, but that doesn't preclude Beckham from re-signing. Both general manager Eric DeCosta and head coach John Harbaugh would like to see the 31-year-old return, but that doesn't mean it will work out. And even if Beckham does return to Baltimore, he'll be one to ignore in standard-sized fantasy leagues, especially with the team saying that Rashod Bateman will have a bigger role in 2024.

Odell Beckham Jr. Catches One Pass In Win

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. got off to an early start with a 12-yard catch on the team's first offensive drive, but that concluded his contributions as he finished with just one catch for 12 yards in the team's 34-10 victory over the Texans. Beckham Jr. faced a challenging game script as the Ravens maintained a comfortable lead throughout the second half, focusing on running down the clock. In the passing game, Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and Isaiah Likely took on prominent roles, and the potential return of Mark Andrews (ankle) further diminishes OBJ's role consistency. The Ravens are set to host either the Bills or the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game next week, but Beckham Jr. remains a boom-or-bust, touchdown-dependent option in a run-heavy offense behind other primary targets in the passing game.

Odell Beckham Jr. Draws Tough Matchup In Divisional Round

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has had a rollercoaster of a year in terms of fantasy performances. He wasn't the number-one receiver and a lot of the time, either Mark Andrews or Isaiah Likely received more targets than him too. He did still break off big plays throughout the year that got him three touchdowns. Due to his lack of targets, however, he became a touchdown-dependent receiver. The Houston Texans are actually tied with the Ravens in terms of fantasy points per game allowed to opposing receivers with 32.1. Receivers may have gained more yards against the Texans, but they scored fewer touchdowns. Unless the Texans gameplan heavily for Zay Flowers and the tight end position, Beckham doesn't seem to be the one to win any DFS tournaments.

Odell Beckham Jr. To Be Rested In Regular Season Finale

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was rested in practice all week and will be held out of the Week 18 regular season finale on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rookie Zay Flowers (calf) is doubtful and receiver Tylan Wallace (knee) is considered questionable. The Ravens will also rest start quarterback Lamar Jackson with the top seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs already locked up. The 31-year-old Beckham dealt with various injuries all year and was extremely inconsistent for fantasy managers in his 14 games played, catching 35 of 64 targets for 565 yards and three touchdowns. With both OBJ and Flowers out this weekend for a Ravens offense led by quarterback Tyler Huntley, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor will be the top receivers in addition to tight end Isaiah Likely.

Odell Beckham Jr. Has Just One Catch In Blowout Win

The Baltimore Ravens didn't need wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. much in their 56-19 beatdown of the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 on Sunday. Beckham was targeted only once in the game and came down with a 33-yard reception. With the game pretty much over at halftime, the 31-year-old veteran wasn't on the field all that much in the second half. OBJ is a nice downfield threat for quarterback Lamar Jackson, but he's far too inconsistent for fantasy managers to rely on if you're still playing for a fantasy championship in Week 18. Beckham has scored only three times this year and not since he had four catches for 97 yards in the Week 14 win over the Los Angeles Rams. In three games since, he only has four catches on seven targets for 60 yards and no touchdowns.

Odell Beckham Jr. A Risky Flex Option Against Dolphins

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been on a rough stretch over the last couple of games. He received three targets in each game and turned that into a combined three catches for 27 yards and no scores. The Miami Dolphins aren't the best defense against opposing receivers as shown by their rank of 18th in PPR formats and have given up 15 touchdowns throughout the season. The one thing that could be going his way is that Zay Flowers (calf) is currently listed as questionable, so if he misses this game, that makes Beckham the number-one receiver. However, he remains a risky option because his role in the passing game hasn't been consistent throughout the year.

Odell Beckham Jr. Quiet In Second Consecutive Game

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was not able to put much of a fantasy performance together despite the big win over the San Francisco 49ers on Christmas. The former superstar was only able to catch two passes for 13 yards and received just three targets in this one. Over his last two games, Beckham now has three catches for 27 yards on six targets. His role on the offense can change drastically from game to game which makes him harder to trust in the fantasy playoffs. This receiving corps could put up some points in their next matchup though as the Dolphins are in the bottom half of the league against opposing receivers this year.

Odell Beckham Jr. Has WR3 Potential In Week 16

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has seen a rollercoaster of a season with inconsistent output. In Week 14, he saw 10 targets which netted four receptions for 97 yards and a score. Week 15 was a different story with just three targets that ended in one catch for 14 yards. Beckham seems to be affected the most when it comes to the game script since Isaiah Likely and Zay Flower are the first two options. While the San Francisco 49ers boast one of the best defenses in the league, their weak spot is the outside corner which plays right into Beckham's hands. Fantasy managers can consider Beckham a WR3/WR4 in this tougher matchup.

Odell Beckham Jr. Absent On Thursday

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) was not available for Thursday's practice session. The veteran wideout was held out of practice with what is believed to be a minor illness. That being said, Beckham should be fine in time for Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He's coming off a rough outing in Week 15 and it won't get any easier for Beckham this week. Fantasy managers should consider Beckham a possible WR4 for this upcoming Monday Night matchup.

Odell Beckham Jr. Misses Wednesday’s Unofficial Practice

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (unspecified) did not practice in the team's unofficial practice on Wednesday. With the Ravens playing on Monday night, Baltimore didn't have to give a reason for Beckham's absence. But Thursday's injury report will be more telling if the veteran were to miss another practice. The team could just be giving the 31-year-old wideout extra rest before a big matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16. He'll have three more chances to get back on the practice field before Monday's game.

Odell Beckham Jr. Sees Three Targets Against Jaguars

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn't receive much work in the passing game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday night. Despite the 23-7 win, Beckham finished with one catch for 14 yards on three targets. Isaiah Likely and Rashod Bateman ended up leading the team in targets as the game script just seemed to get away from Beckham in this one. After leading 10-0 at halftime, the run game took over and ended with 42 total carries. The rest of the way, Beckham's value will likely be dependent on the matchup and in Week 16, they'll take on one of the best teams in the league the San Francisco 49ers.
