Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is dealing with a Grade 3 AC Joint sprain according to Josina Anderson's sources. He is trying to do everything to play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.
The Browns are dealing with major injuries at three of four skill position groups, and a short week against the Broncos is not the best way to hope for a quick recovery and turnaround. It is safe look elsewhere for receiver help.
CLE WR Odell Beckham - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs. Broncos
Beckham continues to disappoint this season, turning in another underwhelming game against the Cardinals where he caught 5-of-8 targets for 79 yards. It's clear that he's having a tough time establishing rapport with Baker Mayfield. We've seen these struggles throughout his career in Cleveland. Perhaps OBJ can find his groove with Case Keenum under center.
The Broncos rank 12th in aFPA to wideouts, so this isn't an easy matchup. It's also unclear if OBJ will be able to play in this game, as he's currently dealing with a shoulder sprain. If he's able to suit up, he should dominant target share for the Browns, making him a boom-or-bust WR3 with high upside in this spot. Check to see if fellow wideout Jarvis Landry is also able to play, as this would put a dent in Beckham's target share.
