Odell Beckham

Odell Beckham Jr. Out against Washington.

There is a difference in mentality when you are 4-8 with a slim chance of making the playoffs and 8-4 fighting for a first round bye. The New York Giants, who are 4-8, stated star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out against Washington this week.  This move can be far from surprising for two reasons. First, OBJ is signed to a long term deal and want to get the most mileage out of Beckham and not risk a devastating injury in a game that does not matter. Second, if the Giants lose they could benefit on draft night by having a higher draft pick.
