Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants, $8,500
Odell Beckham Jr. comes in at a cheap price among wide receivers, with four receivers more expensive than him going into Week 7. Beckham has a perfect matchup against the Atlanta Falcons’ generous defense, meaning the Giants should have a bounce-back game offensively in this contest.
This year, Beckham has amassed 506 receiving yards and one touchdown on a total of 45 receptions. It’s no secret this offense needs a rejuvenation. Running back Saquon Barkley has seem massive productivity, but you wonder how long he can carry this offense on his own. At some point Beckham has to have another breakthrough game.
The Falcons defense has allowed a total of 417.5 yards, 295.8 passing yards, 121.7 rushing yards and 32 points per game. If this offense can’t get going against the Falcons atrocious defense then we have more problems in New York than what we originally thought.
In 2018, Beckham is averaging 84.33 receiving yards per game, 7.5 receptions, and 11.5 targets per game. The volume is there for Beckham to produce massive fantasy numbers each and every week. Beckham seems to be done with Manning’s poor play overall as their signal caller and has voiced his frustrations against ownership’s wishes. Monday Night Football should at least ease the tension for a week, as all skill position players should be played and have a very productive night.
Prediction: 105 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns
