|Beckham Jr. suffered a pedal ankle fracture in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers, forcing the former 2014 first-round pick from LSU to miss the remainder of the 2017 season. Before suffering the injury, Beckham Jr. was on pace to deliver nearly identical numbers from his 2016 campaign in which he finished with 101 catches for 1367 yards and ten touchdowns as the No. 5 ranked wide receiver.
At just 25 years of age, there is little evidence to suggest that Beckham Jr. will not fully recover from his injury and regain his record-setting form from the first three seasons of his career. The addition of second-overall pick Saquon Barkley should give an otherwise anemic rushing attack a much-needed boost that could equate to more success in the passing game. Also, the Giants made great strides in improving their offensive line with the addition of free agent left tackle Nate Solder from New England, and the selection of guard Will Hernadez with the 34th pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
Doubts surrounding Beckham Jr.'s ability to recover from injury fully and contract dispute will likely push the star receiver to the back end of the first round in most redraft leagues. Although those concerns have some validity, the improvements to the Giants offense and the fact that Beckham Jr. has never finished outside the top-5 in WR make him arguably the best value in the first round.
| Evan Engram week-to-week with MCL injury|

|New York Giants tight end Evan Engram sprained the MCL in his right knee in Sunday's victory over the Houston Texans, coach Pat Shurmur confirmed Monday.
Engram will be considered week-to-week, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The weak tight end fantasy market takes another hit. Rhett Ellison saw three targets good for 3 catches and 39 yards in Week 3 but won't be a reliable fantasy option. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shephard should continue to soak up targets while Engram is sidelined.
|Odell Beckham gets 5-year contract extension|
$65 million guaranteed

|The #Giants and WR Odell Beckham Jr. have agreed to terms on a 5-year extension worth a whopping $95M, source said. He gets the highest guarantee ever for a WR at $65M and averages $20M over the first 3 years. Nice job by the #NYG and agent Zeke Sandhu getting this done. Win/win (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Beckham has been seeking a deal for roughly two years and is now under contract through 2023. He topped 1300 yards and scored double-digit touchdowns in his first three years in the league before breaking his ankle in October last season. He's sat out pre-season action to this point.
