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.'
Huddle Up: 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 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.'
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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 WR Odell Beckham Jr. has not been involved in any trade talks this offseason, according to a source.
Huddle Up: 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.'
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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.

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.
Huddle Up: Any fire to the smoke? Time will tell, but OBJ would continue to have WR1 potential catching passes from QB Kirk Cousins.
