2018 Fantasy Outlook
After missing Week 1 due to a summer ankle sprain, Beckham was on pace for a 1,200-yard, 12-score, 100-catch season through the better part of four games before breaking his ankle late Week 5 and missing the rest of the season. Beckham is the only receiver in NFL history to post 90-1,300-10 receiving lines in his first two seasons, and he did it for three. At 5-11, 198, he has only average size, but he ran a slick 4.43 40 at the combine, plays faster in pads and is even quicker than he is fast. One of the league's most dangerous players in space, he can beat defensive backs down the field or take a short slant to the house. And while Beckham isn't big, he plays big - Beckham can out-leap defensive backs in the end zone, and his large hands and ability to catch the ball one-handed extend his catch radius. Assuming Beckham is fully recovered - as expected - the biggest question is the Giants offense. The team brought back a declining, 37-year-old Eli Manning, but the departure of inept play callers Ben McAdoo and Mike Sullivan in favor of new coach Pat Shurmur could have a major impact. After all, as offensive coordinator of the Vikings, Shurmur got 1,276 yards and 9.0 YPT out of Adam Thielen and 849 yards and 8.9 YPT out of Stefon Diggs with Case Keenum under center. Beckham is a far greater talent than either Vikings wideout and won't turn 26 until November. In other words, he's still firmly in his prime. Second-overall pick RB Saquon Barkley figures to occupy a large share of the team's offense, and third-year man Sterling Shepard will have a significant role as will second-year TE Evan Engram. But a healthy Beckham should command his usual target share, and the circumstances around him have never been better. Beckham ran routes on the side during minicamp in June, and he was a full participant at the start of training camp. Read Past Outlooks

Offseason plans to be determined

Quadriceps
April 2, 2019
Although Beckham (quadriceps) attended the first day of the Browns' offseason program Monday, he wasn't present Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "We don't really know the specifics right now, but he won't be here continually right now," coach Freddie Kitchens said. "He'll be back and forth, but he has some things he has to tie up, and we're getting all of that in order now."
ANALYSIS
Beckham was a sporadic attendee of the Giants' offseason program the past two years, so his current absence has precedence. By all indications, he'll make his presence felt at OTAs throughout May and mandatory minicamp from June 4-6 to build his rapport with Baker Mayfield and company. Beckham has yet to address the quadriceps injury that forced four consecutive DNPs to conclude last season, but the aforementioned activities eventually will put an end to any questions about his health.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
2014
Jerry Rice had Bill Walsh and Joe Montana. Randy Moss, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Beckham Jr., sadly, is saddled with present-day Eli Manning and Ben McAdoo. Still, Beckham managed a 101-1,367-10 line, making it his third straight year of 90-1,300- 10 to start his career, something no other player has done. Beckham's efficiency dropped off significantly, however, with only 13.5 YPC and 8.1 YPT, easily the lowest marks of his career, tracking Manning's slide to 6.7 YPA in his age-35 season. At 5-11, 198, Beckham has average size, but his large hands, leaping ability and skill at catching one-handed make him a good red-zone target, something the Giants recognize as he was tied for second in red-zone looks with 23 and fifth with seven targets inside the five. Beckham runs a 4.43 40, but looks even faster in pads, taking short throws to the house and finishing third among WR with 518 yards after the catch. For all his skill and opportunity, Beckham is part of a low-octane offense (24th in YPP) with an easily outsmarted head coach who alternates between neglecting Beckham and forcing the ball to him at inopportune times. Moreover, the Giants also added two more pass catchers this offseason in Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, and last year's second-round pick Sterling Shepard will have a role, so Beckham could lose a few opportunities.
Quick, name the players in NFL history with more than 180 catches, 2,600 yards and 25 TDs in their first two years. There's only one, so let's ease the criteria and ask for 150 catches, 2,000 yards and 20 TDs. Still just Beckham. Did we mention he didn't see full-time snaps until Week 7 in 2014 and missed another game due to a (well-earned) suspension last year? Beckham has put on a show during his first two years like no WR since Randy Moss (149-2,726-28) in 1998-99. At 5-11, 198, Beckham has average size, but he plays bigger due to his huge hands and ability to snag the ball out of the air one-handed. The Giants didn't take full advantage of his red-zone skills last year, targeting him 20 times inside the 20 (19th) and seven inside the 10 (120th). Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo promoted to head coach, it's unlikely Beckham's usage changes much. That's OK because he does plenty of damage from deep - his eight catches for 40-plus yards tied for the NFL lead with Antonio Brown who had 35 more targets. While Beckham's 4.43 40 is merely good, he ran a blazing unofficial 4.31 at the Combine, more reflective of the damage he's done to DBs. While a healthy Victor Cruz and rookie Sterling Shepard could see their share of targets, they replace Rueben Randle and low-end options. None is a significant threat to Beckham.
Beckham's rookie season defied laws of physics and limits of credulity. After missing most of training camp and four games with a hamstring injury, and seeing only six targets in his first two games, Beckham went on a 10-game rampage peak-Jerry Rice would envy. From Weeks 8-17, he went 85-1,233-11, a pace that prorates to 136-1,973-18. That would give him the second-most single-season receptions of all time, the most yardage and the third-most TDs. Before we scream "regression to the mean," of which there will almost surely be some, it's worth noting Beckham was a rookie learning a new system without the benefit of training camp reps, working with a quarterback for the first time while claiming to battle a hamstring injury all year. At 5-11, 198, Beckham has only average size, but ran a blazing 4.31 unofficial time at the NFL Combine (his official one was a merely fast 4.43). He also plays big thanks to a 38.5-inch vertical leap, elite ball skills and large hands, allowing him to operate in the red zone — he tied for fifth in red-zone targets with 26 in only 12 games. Beckham remarkably dropped only two of the 130 passes thrown his way, several of which he snagged with one hand. He also averaged 10 yards per target (4th among the league's 41 100-target wideouts). Beckham had the benefit of being the only game in town for much of last season — at least until Rueben Randle came on during the final two games. With Victor Cruz presumably returning from a knee injury early in the year, that might not be the case in 2015. Still, even if Cruz were 100 percent healthy and Randle emerges as a consistent option — two possibilities that are far from assured — Beckham is the team's unquestioned No. 1 target and one of the rising superstars in the league.
The 12th overall pick in this year’s draft, Beckham has the speed and athleticism to strike for big plays, something that was lacking for the Giants last year. At 5-11, 198, Beckham has only average size, but he has a 38.5-inch vertical leap and ran an unofficial 4.31 40 at the NFL Combine, considerably faster than his 4.43 official time. he should see a piece of the team’s targets right away in the new West-Coast-style offense under coordinator Ben McAdoo. However, third-year man Rueben Randle is still around, along with Jerrel Jernigan who came on late in the season. And of course Victor Cruz is entrenched as the team’s top option, so a major breakout for Beckham as a rookie would be a surprise.
