2. Odell Beckham Jr., WR (NYG)
Like previously mentioned, the Top 3 on this list is very easy to come up with. And No. 2 is hands down Odell Beckham Jr.
The talent is obvious to see. Forget “The Catch” he made last season on SNF against the Dallas Cowboys, he seems to wow us on a consistent basis.
Take last week for example. Against the Washington Redskins, the Giants desperately needed a score. Eli Manning threw the ball into a part of the endzone where OBJ (and only OBJ) could wind up making a catch:
He’s more than just skill. He’s smart on the field as well. OK, perhaps earlier in the seaosn he was coming up with some boneheaded displays of frustration as opposing defenses targeted him, but that was to be expected. And you can’t blame the defenders for wanting to make that one big hit that’ll get them on SportsCenter.
When you’re the talk of the league and on the cover of Madden, you will become a target.
Beckham currently ranks fourth in the NFL in receiving yards (1,005) and is tied with Marshall and a few others for second in TD receptions (9).
