Odell Beckham Fantasy Projection:
Odell Beckham Jr. played in only 12 games in his rookie season and put up big time numbers that most veterans couldn’t match. Ahead of his years, Beckham Jr. is one of the best fantasy football options at any position. He is amazing. With the ability to catch anything, great route running and incredible athleticism, Beckham Jr. is as close to unstoppable as it gets in the NFL.
In the 2014 season Beckham Jr. put up 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns off 91 receptions. The sky is officially the limit for Beckham Jr. in 2015. If he was that good as a rookie he will be even better in his second season. The NFL was ready for a player like Beckham Jr. but nobody could catch him in his rookie season.
Victor Cruz’s return will hurt his numbers a bit. Cruz will get a heavy workload in the offense assuming he returns as the same receiver that he was before the injury. Beckham Jr. and Cruz are legitimate number one receivers and that’s a pretty good thing to have two of. Beckham Jr. though will prove to be the top dog in the great receiver combination.
Projection: 120 receptions, 1,65o yards, 15 touchdowns
