Finds end zone
Beckham caught two passes for 28 yards and one touchdown on five targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.
The touchdown helped patch up Beckham's box score for his fantasy investors, but this qualifies as an ineffective game for the talented wideout. Beckham seems to have settled in as the Rams' primary deep threat, or at least that's how it worked against the Jaguars as Van Jefferson, previously the Rams' lead deep threat by default, ran more underneath by catching six passes for 41 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. If Beckham functions farthest downfield it might bring more big-play upside, but it also might make him more prone to cold stretches when the deep ball isn't landing. The Arizona pass rush figures to make Matthew Stafford get rid of the ball quickly in Week 14, so Beckham might need to get open in a hurry to draw targets regularly.
