Odell Beckham’s Fantasy Value Being Tanked by Awful Eli Manning

The misery continues! After finally emerging for an explosive 27 FPs in Week 5, Odell regressed to catch just 6-of-10 passes for a scoreless 44 yards, watching his Giants’ fall to 1-5 in a Week 6 loss to the Eagles. More concerning, Beckham was frequently jawing his teammates, coaches, and *gasp* water coolers, and continues to mentally check himself out due to awful surrounding play from Eli Manning. 

Matched up with the generous Eagles CB Jalen Mills, Beckham seemed ready to finally take off in 2018 and begin reaching his limitless ceiling. Unfortunately, disgusting Eli had other designs. He underthrew any pathetic deep ball shots, missed him on wide open intermediate looks, and is just incapable of accuracy on any throw beyond 10 yards.

Indeed, Beckham’s upcoming schedule is incredibly soft, with 4 of his next 6 matchups versus bottom-10 defenses against WRs. Still, genuinely advocating to Buy Low into Beckham is tough as long as Eli is under center. He failed to take advantage of juicy matchups versus New Orleans (worst-ranked versus WRs) and now the Eagles. Plus, his continued sideline antics and off-field distractions are only hurting his appeal among the coaching staff and his teammates. Even if they wanted to grease the squeaky wheel, Eli is incapable, which should keep Beckham checked out often. Of course, Beckham’s upside will always exist with his limitless talent, and if you have a deep bench and the flexibility to absorb the low floor, he’s worth a stab. But don’t overextend expecting the OBJ of old, at least without a QB change
