Beckham corralled six of eight targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay. Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp (9-183-1) stole the offensive headlines for the Rams, but Beckham turned in his second consecutive solid playoff performance. The wideout has settled in nicely as the Rams' first option behind Kupp, utilizing his newfound red-zone abilities (six touchdowns over the last nine games) to keep his fantasy value afloat in a reduced role. Beckham's value shouldn't change much heading into the championship round, as he should have decent upside against a 49ers squad that is reeling at the cornerback position.
Beckham 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. Beckham saw action 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 the field to Cam Akers for a big gain. With his array of skills on display, 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.
Beckham caught just two of five targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to San Francisco. This was an uninspiring finish to the campaign for Beckham. He posted a respectable 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns through eight games after being acquired by the Rams midseason, but two poor outings against San Francisco took a toll on his final numbers. Additionally, his fantasy outlook increasingly appears to be touchdown dependent, as he only topped 50 receiving yards in two appearance with Los Angeles. As a result, Beckham probably should be viewed as a boom-or-bust target against Arizona in next week's wild-card matchup. For what it's worth, he did have one of his best showings as a Ram versus the Cardinals in Week 14 with six receptions for 77 yards and a score.
Beckham caught five passes for 39 yards and one touchdown on seven targets against Baltimore on Sunday. For the second straight week, Beckham barely salvaged his fantasy day with a late touchdown, this time a game-winning catch with just about a minute left in what turned out to be a 20-19 victory for the Rams. It's a disappointing output for Beckham against a Baltimore secondary decimated by injury and represented a continuation of a trend that's seen quarterback Matthew Stafford struggle to get the ball to anyone other than Cooper Kupp consistently. Another favorable matchup awaits Beckham against the 49ers in Week 18.
Beckham recorded four receptions on eight targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Vikings. Beckham finished second on the team with eight targets behind only Cooper Kupp. However, he failed to work efficiently, picking up only 4.6 yards per target. Beckham's longest reception of the day went for 16 yards on a slant over the middle of the field, and he also scored the game-sealing touchdown with 11 minutes remaining in the final quarter when he beat his coverage to the back corner of the end zone. Though Beckham masked his inefficiency with his score, he has now tallied 50 or fewer receiving yards in three of his last five games.
