2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-18-2014 by Rob Warner
The Giants found their Hakeem Nicks replacement with the 12th overall pick of the 2014 draft. Beckham (5-foot-11 and 198 pounds) dominated at the combine, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. The receiver has strong hands and is explosive after the catch. His pro-ready route-running and separation skills should help him hit the ground running in his rookie season. The LSU alum hauled in 143 passes during his three collegiate seasons, gaining 2,340 yards (16.4 YPC) and 12 touchdowns. He also has special teams value as evidenced by his two punt return scores. His ADP has him selected around WR53 (126.54). Beckham has the most value in dynasty formats, but could potentially have an excellent rookie campaign if the Giants give him starter snaps.
UPDATE: A hamstring injury has kept him out of the first three preseason games. He's reportedly close to 100% and should debut for the 4th preseason game against the Jets.

|12.05||#28 World Ranked - Beckham is perhaps a better fit in the new coordinator's system than is Randle. This is probably a year early for Beckham, but he could surprise this year.|
