RISER – Odell Beckham (WR, NYG)
If you’re shocked that we’ve featured a superstar wideout like Odell Beckham as a riser of the week, that’s perfectly understandable. It should be worth noting, however, that seven weeks ago he was listed as one of our fallers of the week.
After all, he’d yet to record a touchdown at that point, was coming off an embarrassing 23-yard performance and had suffered another meltdown following a home loss against the Washington Redskins. Since then however, the Giants have reeled off six consecutive victories and Beckham has begun to look like his Pro Bowl self, picking up eight touchdowns.
This past Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, he scored twice and even took another stab at punt returns, running one all the way back before it was overturned due to a penalty. Although the Giants’ schedule is about to get tougher, Beckham’s play should not suffer as a result. The nightmarish performances of the first quarter of the season appear to be long gone, so expect continued production from the young phenom.
