Beckham caught nine of his 13 targets for 79 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Eagles. Another week removed from Beckham's ankle injury, he looked more like himself, hauling in a beautiful 10-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter before pinning the ball to his chest for a four-yard score less than two minutes later. He didn't seem to run many deep routes, recording a long gain of just 14 yards, and may continue to work the intermediate channels until he's back at full capacity. Nonetheless, it appears Beckham can be trusted to produce from a fantasy standpoint again. He'll look to build off of this strong performance next week against the Buccaneers.
Beckham (ankle) is not listed on the Giants' final injury report for Week 3, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. The Giants limited Beckham at practice this week as a preventative measure, but he is apparently progressing well in his recovery, as there is no doubt he will take the field Sunday barring a setback over the weekend. Beckham played just 34 snaps in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions, but with no injury designation heading into Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, that number seems likely to increase. While he did admit that his ankle probably isn't back to 100 percent, Beckham said he emerged from last week's game without any setbacks, ESPN.com reports.
Beckham (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. During a post-practice media session, Beckham told Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York that he didn't suffer a setback with his healing left ankle Monday against the Lions, during which was able to handle 34 of the 56 offensive snaps. "I look to play a lot more this week," Beckham added. Turning in an uninhibited practice Friday doesn't necessarily need to happen for Beckham to up his usage. Until he does, though, owners should operate under the impression he's running at less than full capacity.
Beckham (ankle) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Beckham hasn't completed a full practice session since sustaining a left high-ankle sprain in the second week of the preseason, but he's now strung together appearances in three consecutive practices, sandwiched about an active status Monday against the Lions. During his season debut, Beckham took the field for 34 of the Giants' 56 offensive snaps en route to four catches (on five targets) for 36 yards. Logging a full practice by the end of the week would signify Beckham is back to full strength, but he's clearly not there at this juncture.
Beckham (ankle) caught four of five targets for 36 yards in Monday night's 24-10 loss to the Lions. Beckham overcame his ankle injury to be cleared for Monday night's tilt, but it was apparent that the ailment limited his amount of snaps. Despite having his involvement impacted, Beckham still tied for his team's lead in receptions, with only Evan Engram being targeted more times. Considering the Giants have scored just one touchdown through their first two games, a full-speed Beckham is something they could desperately use. However, with ankle injuries being tricky to manage, it'll be worth monitoring the expectations of Beckham's workload ahead of New York's Week 3 trip to Philadelphia.
