News: 11 hours agoBeckham caught all four of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-11 wild-card round win over the Cardinals. He also completed a 40-yard pass.
Spin: Beckham was incorporated early on, starting Los Angeles' second series with a 17-yard catch before hauling in a four-yard jump ball in the back corner of the end zone to cap the drive. After setting up a touchdown with a 31-yard gain his next time out, Beckham began the second half by catching a lateral and slinging the ball across field to Cam Akers for a big gain. With his array of skills on showcase, Beckham enjoyed Monday's lopsided victory and will strive to remain a key contributor in this weekend's NFC divisional-round matchup versus the Buccaneers.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Beckham returns for his third season with the Browns following an underwhelming 2019 (74-1,035-4 receiving line and one top-10 fantasy week) and injury-plagued 2020 (23-319-3 line and one weekly finish better than 19th in six tries). That's decent production for most players but not for a player who averaged a 96-1,374-12 line during his first three seasons in the league (2014-16). Durability remains a major concern, as Beckham is averaging 9.8 games played over the past four seasons. Beckham turns 29 this year, and his target ceiling is capped a bit in Cleveland's run-first (albeit efficient) offense. Beckham should be valued as a WR3 but has the talent to leap back into the WR2 mix.
