Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. The veteran wideout had a questionable tag entering this one. However, it was reported earlier on Sunday that he'd be available, so fantasy managers had anticipated this. Beckham had a rough start to the season. Yet, he's found the end zone twice in the last three games and finally eclipsed the 100-yard mark in the Week 11 win over the Bengals. As a result, Beckham warrants flex consideration in Week 12.

Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Zay Flowers (hip) and Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) are expected to be active in Week 12 versus the Los Angeles Chargers, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both players had been listed as questionable but were trending in the right direction after logging full practices on Friday. While Flowers has been a more steady contributor over the whole season, Beckham has shown increased production over the last three weeks with 212 yards and two touchdowns during that span. Fantasy managers can justify starting either Ravens receiver now that tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) is done for the season.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) said he will be a game-time decision in Week 12 on Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers. "I won't say it will be pain-free," Beckham said. The 31-year-old veteran will most likely be listed as questionable on Baltimore's final Week 12 injury report on Friday. OBJ put up his best game of the season in last Thursday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals in a game in which tight end Mark Andrews suffered a season-ending ankle injury. Beckham had four catches on seven targets for a season-high 116 yards before injuring his shoulder late in the fourth quarter. It sounds like Beckham is on the right side of questionable, but he'll be a pretty risky fantasy option with the game being on Sunday night. If he's limited at all or out, rookie Zay Flowers and Rashod Bateman could be targeted heavily in Week 12.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) was able to get through a limited practice session on Thursday. This is good news after the veteran wideout was unable to practice on Wednesday. Beckham suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 11 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He appears on track to suit up for the Week 12 matchup versus the Los Angeles Chargers. It's worth noting that fellow wideouts Rashod Bateman (foot) and Zay Flowers (hip) are also banged up heading into this game. Fantasy managers should check back after Friday's practice for another update.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is not practicing on Wednesday. Beckham had by far his best game of the season in last Thursday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, catching four of his seven targets for a season-high 116 yards, but he also injured his shoulder late in the game and had to leave. OBJ indicated after that game that he'd be sore but nothing to indicate he was dealing with a long-term injury. If the 31-year-old veteran can return to practice later this week, he should have a good shot at playing in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football. With tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) likely done for the year, OBJ's fantasy stock has gone up considerably, and the matchup this weekend is excellent.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury late in the Week 11 Thursday Night Football win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran had his best game as a Raven last week, posting four catches for 116 yards. He flashed his YAC ability that he showed early in his career, so it was disappointing to see him get banged up near the end of the contest. However, head coach John Harbaugh said Beckham Jr.'s injury is not viewed as long-term. Fantasy managers will have to monitor his status heading into the Week 12 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, but he shouldn't be expected to miss much action. If he plays, he'll face arguably the worst pass defense in the NFL. With Mark Andrews (ankle) expected to miss significant time, he could see additional targets down the stretch.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) exited Thursday's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals late due to a shoulder injury. Head coach John Harbaugh said after the 34-20 win that the issue "doesn't look too bad". The 31-year-old three-time Pro Bowler had turned back the clock for a moment on a vintage 51-yard catch-and-run to help ice the game for the Ravens in the fourth quarter. Beckham's evening wrapped up with a season-high 116 yards on four receptions (seven targets). The former New York Giant has 10 days to get right for a possible Week 12 shootout with the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football. Beckham's role is in line to expand with Mark Andrews (ankle) now likely to be out for the rest of the campaign, but Zay Flowers and Rashod Bateman would be busy if OBJ cannot play next Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may be the second-hottest hand on the team right after Gus Edwards heading into a Week 11 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Beckham has found the hole in the defense twice in a row after catching an end zone fade in Week 9 and then a pass across the middle where he outran the defensive backs for a 40-yard score. With the Bengals secondary struggling to contain the pass after getting gashed by the Houston Texans, Beckham has the ability the shake loose again for a score. He can be considered as a WR3/flex value in this matchup.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not practice on Tuesday. Team beat reporter Jonas Shaffer initially indicated that Beckham was tending to a sore knee but the Ravens eventually wound up listing "not injury related-rest" as the reason for his missed practice. Beckham practiced fully on Monday and apparently was just getting a maintenance day on Tuesday as his team is facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night in Week 11. The veteran wideout should be good to go for that matchup, although it would be wise to keep an eye on Wednesday's final practice report if you are counting on him in fantasy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) is not practicing on Tuesday. According to Ravens insider Jonas Shaffer, the veteran wideout has a sore knee. Beckham delivered a 40-yard catch-and-run touchdown last week and was not listed on Monday's injury report, so he's not likely to be in danger of missing the Week 11 Thursday Night Football contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are just a neutral matchup for fantasy wide receivers, so Beckham is only a deep-league consideration.
Nov 14, 2023 2:51 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is starting to find a bit of a rhythm after scoring in back-to-back weeks despite seeing fewer targets this time around compared to the previous few weeks. He hauled in one of his two targets which went for a 40-yard touchdown after he sprinted right past the secondary. Beckham looked the younger version of himself with the Giants as he flashed some big speed. He could be one to watch as the Ravens' passing game has evolved outside of just Mark Andrews and Zay Flowers. Beckham will look to continue his hot streak in Week 11 against the Bengals.
Nov 12, 2023 8:05 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. found the end zone for the first time in his Ravens tenure in Week 9 during garbage time. He hauled in a pretty pass from Tyler Huntley in the corner of the end zone after the game was already in hand, but it allowed him to put up his first double-digit fantasy performance of the season. He has seen an uptick in target share over the last few games, and as long as he can stay on the field, he's been able to catch some more throws lately. With that being said, the Cleveland Browns are the number-two team against opposing receivers this season, which could make it an uphill battle to repeat that performance this week. Fantasy managers can consider Beckham a risky flex option.
Nov 11, 2023 12:13 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Rashod Bateman (back) and Odell Beckham Jr. (rest, knee) have been removed from the injury report and do not carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Bateman's role has fluctuated this season, but he played 57 percent of snaps in Week 9 while managing to command a season-high five targets. Meanwhile, Beckham has struggled to stay on the field but flashed talent when healthy. Just last week, he caught five passes for 56 yards and one touchdown. Both receivers have respectable roles in the Baltimore offense, but it's far more difficult to trust them than it is to trust someone like Zay Flowers, Gus Edwards, or Mark Andrews. For the time being, Bateman and Beckham don't belong in fantasy lineups.
Nov 10, 2023 4:15 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) returned to practice as a full participant on Thursday after being rested on Wednesday. Beckham continues to manage his knee injury, but he should be active this weekend to face one of his old teams, the Cleveland Browns, in Week 10. The 31-year-old had the best game of his first season with Baltimore in the Week 9 blowout win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, catching five of his seven targets for 56 yards and a touchdown. OBJ will be hoping to build on that performance, but fantasy managers should temper expectations from the aging receiver against a much better defense in a game that should be low-scoring.
Nov 9, 2023 8:10 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (NIR rest, knee) did not practice on Wednesday for rest and knee purposes. This appears to just be a rest day for the veteran wideout even though the knee issue is new. Beckham has dealt with a variety of issues this season including a shoulder and ankle injury, which caused him to miss one game, so it makes sense that the Ravens would want to get him some rest. He scored his first touchdown of the season in the Week 9 win over the Seattle Seahawks, although it was backup QB Tyler Huntley who threw him the ball, so he seems to be trending in the right direction. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on his practice status over the next few days to make sure he's ready to play against the Browns in Week 10.
Nov 8, 2023 6:55 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. put together a season-high in receiving yards while tying season-highs in targets and receptions in Week 9. The veteran wideout finished with 56 yards and a touchdown while hauling in five of his seven targets. His first score of the season came on a great play to the back corner of the end zone when Tyler Huntley found him after he got some great separation from the cornerback. This was Beckham's first double-digit fantasy performance of the season and he'll look to keep that momentum rolling in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns.
Nov 5, 2023 5:36 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been better at drawing pass interference calls than fantasy football this season. The good thing is that he was cleared from his shoulder injury and was removed from the team's injury report heading into Week 9. On the other hand, Beckham has seen more than four targets in one game so far this season and has only caught more than two passes twice. Against a Seahawks defense that has improved against the pass since Week 4, it wouldn't be recommended to deploy Beckham into any fantasy lineups regardless of the format.
Nov 4, 2023 3:59 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 9 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The veteran wideout has dealt with nagging shoulder and ankle issues this season. When healthy, Beckham has been quiet with only four targets last week. At this point, fantasy managers shouldn't trust Beckham as anything more than a low-end flex option. He has a decent matchup versus Seattle, but continues to get lost in the shuffle.
Nov 3, 2023 9:06 PM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has expressed frustration over his current role in the offense. The 30-year-old wideout was held without a catch last week, which is only the second time that has happened during his career. He was targeted four times during the Ravens' victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Right now, Beckham is averaging 27 yards per game this season. It's worth noting that he continues to deal with nagging shoulder and ankle issues. His usage might see an uptick if he's able to get fully healthy, but he remains a risky flex option in fantasy formats right now.
Nov 3, 2023 9:14 AM EST
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) has returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday's session while managing a shoulder issue. It seems to always be something with Beckham at this stage of his career, but his return to practice at least gives him a shot to be active in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks after he was injured in the Week 8 victory over the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. Baltimore has barely been able to support one fantasy relevant wide receiver this year alongside tight end Mark Andrews, so OBJ isn't a recommended flex option this weekend if he's active. The 30-year-old veteran has caught 14 of his 26 targets for 162 scoreless yards in his first six games (four starts) with Baltimore in 2023.
