Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) had two receptions for 23 yards against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 21. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Beckham was obviously bothered by his shoulder, apparently aggravating it on an attempted catch along the sidelines. He fought through it, though, and had back-to-back catches to jumpstart a 13-play, 75-yard drive that put the Browns up 17-7 and proved to be the decisive points. Of course, 23 yards on two receptions isn't what fantasy owners have in mind, and the change at QB did nothing to get the needle pointing upward with Beckham. He's probably too talented to dump, but some time on your fantasy bench would certainly be justified.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) was being looked at by trainers after landing on his right shoulder against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Beckham was dealing with an issue to the same shoulder entering the game, and it didn't take long for the injury to be aggravated. If Beckham misses time moving forward, Jarvis Landry should enjoy in a bump in value.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is expected to play through his shoulder injury in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: He'll be joined by longtime college and pro teammate Jarvis Landry, who will return to action for the first time since Week 2. Beckham is definitely at risk for an in-game setback, but he also boasts a fair amount of upside against a defense that has been beaten by the deep ball a time or two per game recently. Beckham and Landry can be viewed as WR3 options, especially with Case Keenum under center. Their presence removes most of the sleeper appeal Donovan Peoples Jones possesses, however.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) has an uphill battle to play Thursday, Oct. 21, due to a significant shoulder injury, but he hasn't been ruled out yet.
Huddle Up: Jarvis Landry looks to be ready to return, and he'll be a flex option fresh off of IR.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Beckham may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He is a risky fantasy option because of his injury and the team's quarterback situation, but he can still be a No. 3 receiver if he is active.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 18. The Browns did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Beckham should be available for the Week 7 game, but fantasy players will know more in a few days. He posted a season-high 79 yards and will continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if active.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) left the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals in the second quarter, but was able to return in the second half. He finished with five grabs for 79 yards on eight targets.
Huddle Up: Beckham might have been in line for a huge role with Nick Chubb inactive, and the team changing up its usual run-heavy approach. But he exited, and Donovan Peoples-Jones stepped up instead. Beckham could still have some nice fantasy appeal in Week 7 against Denver on Thursday with a quick turnaround, but it doesn't help Baker Mayfield is a bit limited with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, too. Treat OBJ as more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option at this point.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. needs to touch the ball more, Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said Thursday, Oct. 14. 'He's a good player, and getting him the ball is important to all of us,' Van Pelt added.
Huddle Up: After only four catches for 47 yards on 10 targets the last two games, it sounds like we may have a squeaky-wheel situation here with OBJ. Treat him as a solid WR3/flex option this week with ample upside.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted just two grabs for 20 yards on three targets in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Beckham was mostly invisible, and he was outproduced by Donovan Peoples-Jones (5-70-0) and Rashard Higgins (3-29-1) among the wideouts. He is a shell of his former self from a fantasy perspective, only worth using as a WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams at this point. The Browns host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.
