Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is recovering from a torn ACL, suffered in the Super Bowl and remains one of the top free agents remaining as of last week. He will likely be out until November, so the team getting him would be looking at a boost to their roster for the second half of the season.
Beckham started his career with the New York Giants, putting up three straight seasons with at least 1,300 receiving yards. He missed most of the 2017 season after suffering a broken ankle and returned to post back-to-back seasons with more than 1,000 yards in 2018 and 2019, the latter of which was his first season with the Cleveland Browns. In the seventh game of the 2020 season, Beckham suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, and he started slowly with the Browns last season before getting traded to the Rams.
Including playoffs, Beckham Jr. played 12 games for the Rams and recorded 48 catches for 593 yards and seven touchdowns. His most productive effort was in the NFC Championship game, when he caught nine passes for 113 yards on 11 targets. Before he was injured in the Super Bowl, Beckham caught a 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter and added a 35-yard reception in the second quarter. He looked like he was an impact player on the biggest possible stage.
Here are the latest odds for Odell Beckham Jr.’s next team from DraftKings.

Los Angeles Rams
After winning a Super Bowl with the Rams, Beckham Jr. has a strong connection to the team, and he dropped in on head coach Sean McVay’s wedding. The Rams already have Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson at wide receiver. Does Beckham want to be No. 3 on that depth chart?
Green Bay Packers
Once the Packers traded Davante Adams to the Raiders, that left their wide receiver situation in flux, and it looks like Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and Randall Cobb hold down the starting spots. A healthy Beckham Jr. could still be a No. 1 receiving option there, but Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been comfortable about pumping up Lazard as his new No. 1 receiving option.
Baltimore traded Marquise Brown to Arizona, leaving second-year wideout Rashod Bateman atop their wide receiver depth chart. While Bateman is promising, there is no doubt that Beckham would upgrade Baltimore’s receiving corps.
The Cowboys dealt Amari Cooper to Cleveland, leaving CeeDee Lamb as the top receiver. Michael Gallup is recovering from his own torn ACL, suffered in Week 17 last season, and rookie Jalen Tolbert, a third-round pick, looks like he will have an important role in Big D. Beckham would offer some insurance for the uncertainty in that group.
This might count as ring chasing, considering that the Bills are the consensus Super Bowl favorites, and the Bills are in good shape with Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis as their top two wide receivers. However, Beckham could provide a higher level of skill for the depth role behind those two and he is at least comfortable hinting about the idea of a move to Buffalo.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have overhauled their receiving corps a bit, most notably by trading Tyreek Hill to Miami. That leaves holdover Mecole Hardman along with two newcomers – JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling – to take the most prominent wide receiver roles. A healthy Beckham could offer improvement there.
