The play of the year was probably his one-handed grab against the Dallas Cowboys. You know exactly what I’m talking about, he dropped jaws all across the country. The epic play on Sunday Night Football is still getting him the star treatment.
There were some great rookies this year, but none of them shined like Beckham. In seven games this season he had over 100 yards.
His best performance was in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. He had 185 yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions. He had a game against the Washington Redskins where he caught 3 touchdown receptions.
The point is that he is insanely talented. Beckham had such an incredible rookie season that he became a household name, a sensation. The rookie of the year award could not have gone to a more deserving player.
No player accomplished what Beckham did. No offensive rookie became a sensation close to Beckham’s magnitude.
