Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham has been the receiver to own in New York for both teams. Should fantasy owners count on him this week?

There are not a lot of receivers capable of going to-to-toe with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, especially rookies. Well, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. turned in a very impressive seven-catch, 108-yard game in an ugly loss during Week 10.

On top of that, he had a 156-yard game in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts and scored twice in Week 7 before his Week 8 bye, In other words, he's rolling.

He'll get another tough matchup at home against the San Francisco 49ers this week. The Niners are actually really struggling lately, giving up six touchdowns to receivers in the last three games. However, two of those came against New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Excluding those two games, they have been one of the worst matchups to receivers all season.

Fantasy impact: There is a lot of risk here, so ODB is more of a low-end WR2 in PPR and standard leagues. If you have safer options, it makes more sense to go with them.
