Coach Pat Shurmur said Beckham (quad) is feeling better Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. The superstar wide receiver was unexpectedly ruled out Saturday for Sunday's eventual 40-16 win over Washington. He's reportedly been dealing with the thigh injury since Week 12, though he accounted for two scores (one passing) while handling a 93 percent snap share in a Week 13 win over the Bears. The first real hint about Beckham's Week 15 status may not come until Wednesday when the Giants release their initial injury report for Sunday's game against the Titans. It is a good sign that he's feeling better after resting over the weekend.
Beckham (quadriceps) will not play Sunday against the Redskins. It's a surprising turnaround given Beckham was listed as a limited participant Friday, but he didn't carry an injury designation prior to Saturday's announcement. Sterling Shepard will immediately step in as the primary receiving option outside of running back Saquon Barkley, but the likes of Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard should also see a significant increase in snaps against a Redskins defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points to the wide receiver position in 2018.
Beckham was limited in Friday's practice due to a bruised quadriceps but won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com, Beckham's injury first surfaced in the Week 12 loss to the Eagles. It didn't prevent Beckham from logging his second-most snaps of the season in the Giants' subsequent contest against the Bears, though he was limited to three receptions for 35 yards on nine targets in the victory. In any case, Beckham hasn't been included on any of the Giants' injury reports since suffering the quad issue, so his fantasy outlook should remain promising Sunday, when he'll take on a Washington squad that he lit up for eight receptions for 136 yards Week 8.
Beckham brought in three of nine targets for 35 yards and a touchdown and also threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard on a trick play in the Giants' 30-27 overtime win over the Bears on Sunday. Beckham's catch rate was far from efficient in a tough matchup against the suffocating Bears defense, but the star receiver still found a way to log multiple touchdowns for the second time in the last four games. It was the way he went about it that was a bit different, as Beckham surprisingly notched the Giants' first passing touchdown of the day with a 49-yard scoring strike to Russell Shepard on a third-quarter trick play. Beckham will look to bounce back from his lowest reception and receiving yardage totals of the season in a divisional battle versus the Redskins in Week 14.
Beckham caught five of nine targets for 85 yards during Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Eagles. Beckham got off to a quick start, recording 63 yards on three catches before halftime. He needed an IV at halftime, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com, and slowed down considerably after returning, but some poor throws from Eli Manning and questionable officiating played a part in that. Still, Beckham hauled in his most passes since Week 8 and surpassed 70 receiving yards for the fifth straight game. He'll look to get back into the end zone in Week 13 against the Bears.
