Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham, who sat out all of last year with an ACL injury, has recorded 162 yards in five games this season, and is coming off a game where he recorded a season-high seven targets. While he has yet to find the end zone, he’s averaging 11.6 yards per catch.

Start or sit in Week 8 PPR leagues?


Beckham’s role appears to be growing in the Ravens offense, but I’d still keep him on your bench for this week. The Cardinals defense isn’t very good, but Beckham has yet to prove that he can be a consistent threat in a Ravens offense that lacks a true WR1. I’d wait a week to make sure last week wasn’t a fluke.

Start or sit in Week 8 standard leagues?


Same logic applies. I’d wait until the team proves they’re going to consistently go to Beckham before putting him in your lineup.
