Beat writer Dan Graziano: "Odell Beckham was drafted to give the Giants the field-stretching threat that Hakeem Nicks did not provide last year, and the team believes he can outrun defensive backs and help open things up for Ben McAdoo's offense near the line of scrimmage. Of course, assuming they're right, Beckham can provide a big-play threat in his own right down the field. But their hope is that he has the speed to beat press coverage and stretch out defenses in a way that allows their offense to operate with a variety of quick-hitting options. I have my own concerns over how Beckham will react to big, physical cornerbacks, but there are plenty of people I talk to around the league who like him a lot and believe he'll contribute right away."

Fantasy Impact: 

Beckham will likely start alongside Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle since OC Ben McAdoo is likely to call a lot of three-WR sets. If he plays 70 percent or more of the snaps, he should be fantasy relevant in 2014.
