Odell Beckham Jr. fit to start, fantasy owners should roll with the hot hand

The Giants' newest star practiced in full all week and will start in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (back) practiced in full this week and should be ready to play in the team's Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguarsaccording to Rotoworld.com. Beckham caught 10 of 11 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: there was never really any doubt that Beckham would play against the Jaguars and his fantasy owners have to be excited about that. With Victor Cruz (knee) sidelined for the rest of the season, Beckham has stepped up and delivered.

Although he's only in his rookie season and it was thought that teammate Rueben Randle would be the most likely to benefit from Cruz's absence, Beckham has proved to be more reliable and efficient.

He seems to catch almost everything thrown his way and mixes in the occasional spectacular play that is causing everyone in the NFL to take notice. Fantasy owners absolutely must keep this guy in the lineup against the Jaguars.
