Beckham caught six of his 10 targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 34-13 loss to the Eagles. Beckham once again hauled in some poorly thrown Eli Manning passes and broke tackles after the catch to gain extra yardage, but it was all short stuff as the Giants are not looking down the field very often. Beckham should bounce back, but Manning's play is a drag on his production.
Beckham caught eight of 14 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers. He also threw a 57-yard touchdown pass in the 33-31 loss. Beckham led all players in targets, catches and receiving yardage in this one, scoring his first receiving touchdown in almost exactly a year with a 33-yard score in the fourth quarter. Perhaps his best highlight of the day didn't come as a pass catcher, however, as he hit Saquon Barkley with a 57-yard touchdown pass on a trick play in the second. Beckham has had something of an up-and-down season, but he's averaging 92.4 receiving yards per game and should make trips to the end zone more frequently moving forward. He'll look to do just that Thursday against the Eagles in Week 6 matchup.
Beckham caught seven of 11 targets for 60 yards against the Saints on Sunday. He also had one carry for 10 yards. It wasn't much by Beckham's standards in part because Eli Manning was throwing mostly short passes. Beckham's usage is good, and he's too talented not to break a big play sooner or later.
Beckham caught nine of 10 targets for 109 yards Sunday against the Texans. His longest play was only 30 yards, but Beckham made some nice catches in traffic and used his elusiveness to steal extra yards. He looks completely healthy after last year's major injury.
Beckham secured four of nine targets for 51 yards during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Cowboys. The Giants wanted to get Beckham the ball early and often, but quarterback Eli Manning massively struggled to find enough time in the pocket to consistently deliver the receiver a clean pass. Even when Manning did get a chance to lock and load, his accuracy left much to be desired, and Beckham's stat line was one of the biggest victims to be hit. Beckham owners can nonetheless take solace in the fact he ultimately led all Giants wideouts in targets by a comfortable margin, but it's crucial to keep in mind that it could prove difficult for Beckham to realize his massive potential on a weekly basis if he continues to see low-quality looks.
