Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has had to recalibrate his mindset of "killing this season" to accepting a run-oriented offensive role, according to Mark Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. "For me, one of my biggest growths has come in acceptance in a sense and for me knowing it’s probably not going to be that kind of season [with huge numbers],'' Beckham said on a video call Thursday.
"Like I always say, my goal is always going to be my goal, and I don’t feel like I’m ever going to fall short of it. Like I said, learning and acceptance, so you set new goals.''
This is great if looked at solely from a maturity aspect. Fantasy players would prefer OBJ put up fantasy points than block for his teammates, but hard work pays off in different ways. Expectations were already adjusted for him in fantasy, so hearing Beckham say the same is just further confirmation.
