Offensive Player of the Year: Odell Beckham Jr.
Truth be told, there wasn’t another player who could even be considered for this honor. Eli Manning was productive, Weston Richburg was solid, and Justin Pugh is still a star, but none were as sensational as Odell Beckham Jr.
For the third consecutive season, Beckham provided elite production to an otherwise stagnant offense—and this time, he did it for a postseason-caliber team.
Beckham finished with 101 receptions for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. It was his first career season with at least 100 receptions, as well as his third straight year with at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
That puts Beckham in the class of John Jefferson and Randy Moss as the only wide receivers in NFL history to record at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of their first three seasons.
More important than the bare production is the fact that Beckham stepped up during key situations in 2016. The prime example is the fact that he gave the New York Giants its only touchdown during a 10-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.
Outside forces may be critical of Beckham’s every move, but without his presence, the Giants wouldn’t have ended the postseason drought.
