One of the main Giants storylines to watch heading into training camp is the status of Odell Beckham Jr.'s hamstring injury, which kept him off the practice field for a good portion of the team's offseason program. The good news is that Beckham seems to be on the mend.
In a sit-down interview with the NFL Network's Kim Jones, Beckham was asked about his health status, one year after he missed all of training camp, preseason, and the first four regular season games with a strained hamstring.
"It feels a lot better actually," Beckham said. "I would rather be healthy than anything else. I just don't want to go through that, what I had to go through again last year, and not just for myself – just for this team."
Not exactly the most revealing answer, but Beckham added that the plan is for him to be 100 percent by the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. The guess here is that he will have his practice reps monitored throughout camp.
Beckham said that the Pro Bowl that he actually had two tears in his hamstring which didn’t fully heal during the season. If true, then perhaps he has just scratched the surface on his full potential. Once his season started in Week 5, he averaged 17.2 FP (standard) and 24.8 FP (PPR), which was the best in the league in both scoring systems. The only (minor) concerns are his current hamstring injury, and a potential sophomore slump if teams are able to find a way to slow him down.
