Despite playing in only four games in 2017, New York Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made the NFL’s top 100 for the fourth year in a row.
Although his season was cut short just five weeks into last season due to a fractured ankle, Beckham was still voted by his peers into the NFL’s top 100 coming in at 77. Last season he came in at number eight.
Of course, he’s much more talented than his ranking, but the list is strictly based off last season. He only played in four games which is why he dropped 69 places from last year.
OBJ is the second Giant to make the NFL’s top 100 as safety Landon Collins came in at number 92.

In four games last season, Beckham had 25 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns. His best game of the season came in a week three 27-24 loss to the eventual Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles where he had nine receptions for 79 yards and caught two remarkable touchdowns.
His rehab from ankle surgery is going well as he is already working out and doing drills, and all signs point to him being 100 percent by the time training camp comes along at the end of the July.
With a healthy Beckham to go along with Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and rookie Saquon Barkley, Eli Manning will be equipped with the best set of playmakers he’s ever had. The Giants should have one of the most dynamic offenses in the league this season.
Next year when the NFL does their top 100 list expect a healthy Beckham to be ranked in the top 10, and expect the Giants to give him the lucrative contract he’s been wanting.
