5. Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants
Odell Beckham Jr emerged as the next great wide receiver in the NFL. Beckham can be much higher on the list but he was a rookie and played in just 12 of his teams 16 games. Beckham became an absolute mega star in New York catching 12 touchdowns in 12 games including a one hander that was regarded as a top catch of all time.
Beckham missed the first four games due to injury but made up for it in a big way. As the season gets closer and I make my final set of rankings I can see myself moving him up. For now the second year player sits at six. Beckham averaged 108.8 yards a game and was Eli Manning’s go to go during the season.
Beckham had 91 catches in 12 games and many people wonder how great his numbers would have been if he played a full season. Beckham had 130 targets in 12 games. He also had 1305 yards receiving. For now I believe Beckham deserves to be ranked in the top five. Beckham was better than most guys who played a full season. He put up Pro Bowl numbers as a rookie in New York and he did it in 12 games. His numbers where so impressive. Beckham is a guy who can be the top receiver when the season is all set and done.
