Odell Beckham Jr’s Fantasy Value Soars with the Browns

In the stuff of fantasy Wet Dreams, Odell Beckham is heading to Cleveland. The elite talent’s been getting it done even with the horrific Giants, and is now in the perfect spot to realize his true ceiling. Most notably, Beckham’s “Surrounding Talent” score skyrockets from a 9/15 up to a near-perfect 14/15 — yes, Baker Mayfield is that stark of an upgrade over Eli Manning. Plus, both Freddie Kitchens and Todd Monken are offensive wizards and disciples of the deep ball who’ll utilize Beckham to perfection. Indeed, after missing 21 games over five seasons — mostly of the soft tissue variety — Beckham’s shaky health makes him a Risk. Still, truly no other WR comes with a higher ceiling.

Perhaps the only negative from this move is Beckham’s “Usage” will take a hit. Kitchens loves to spread the wealth, plus OBJ will face a stiffer competition for targets here. Even if he doesn’t see 10.3 targets per game again, his efficiency should spike with better utilization and QB-play, offsetting the sheer volume drop. Everything other grade skyrockets. Thus, Beckham’s Fantasy Stock Score soars with the Browns, raising 6 total points from a 88 to 94. This sends him all the way up to my No.3 WR and No.11 overall on my latest Big Board.
