Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) is on track with his recovery, according to general manager Andrew Berry.
Huddle Up: Beckham should be ready for training camp and will work on regaining a connection with Baker Mayfield. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when healthy and can be a weekly starting option in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) is on track in his recovery from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to general manager Andrew Berry.
Huddle Up: Beckham has battled injuries and inconsistent play in recent years, and he has become more of a boom-or-bust fantasy option in Cleveland's run-heavy offense. Still, he should offer WR2 upside in 2021 as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks during the offseason.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) received a strong indication from head coach Kevin Stefanski on Monday, Jan. 18, that he will not be traded as he continues to recover from his torn anterior cruciate ligament.
'I texted with him this morning. I know he's working really hard to get better in his rehab. I'm excited to get him back here,' Stefanski said of Beckham during a virtual interview on Monday.
Huddle Up: Beckham is two months into his ACL rehab and signed through the end of the 2023 season, so a trade was always an unlikely proposition. Making things more difficult for a deal to get done is that he is already 28 years old and has dealt with injuries in four straight seasons. The Browns can always decide to go more pass-heavy in the future, but they seem intent on relying on the running game under Stefanski. As a result, a healthy Beckham needs to be viewed as a high-upside WR2 in fantasy in 2021.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) underwent surgery to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Tuesday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: ACL surgeries usually take nine to 12 months to fully recover from, so the most optimistic timeline for him would be early August of 2021. It's a good bet he'll get plenty of days off in training camp next summer, but he should have a realistic shot at being ready for the 2021 season opener.

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) will not return to the Week 7 game because of his knee injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Beckham's injury in the next day or two. Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins should be the starting receivers while Beckham is out of the lineup. Landry is off to a slow start but can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver, while Higgins has a chance to be a flex option.
