New York Giants rumors present some bad news about Odell Beckham Jr. and his ankle injury. Beckham is officially listed as questionable for the Giants game against the Detroit Lions on Monday night (Sept. 18). After getting listed as questionable for the Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys, Beckham ended up having to sit it that one out.

The New York Giants will have another practice on Sunday (Sept. 17), where they will do a run-through that won’t be at full-speed. It will still give the coaches a better feeling about whether Beckham will be ready for the Monday night game. It’s also possible that Odell Beckham Jr. could remain a game-time decision, further frustrating fans who just want to know if he is going to be on the field.

Is Beckham a good player to start in fantasy football leagues?

This is going to be a situation that fantasy football owners will have to pay close attention to throughout the weekend. As it currently stands, none of the New York Giants rumors present a positive outlook on the situation. While he could certainly be ready to go against the Detroit Lions, it is entirely unclear whether or not Odell Beckham Jr. is going to be healthy enough to play. That makes him a very risky Week 2 start.

Last season, Odell Beckham Jr. caught 101 passes for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was again a fantasy football star, showing that he was worth early-round selections in the 2017 drafts. A preseason injury against the Cleveland Browns has placed him on the shelf, though, not only hurting owners that have him in fantasy football leagues, but also for anyone playing quarterback Eli Manning.

Are the Giants going to miss the NFL Playoffs?

Most of the New York Giants rumors from this preseason were pretty positive for the team, but the Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys may have put a dent in those expectations. A number of experts were actually predicting that the Giants would beat out the Cowboys to win the NFC East this year [VIDEO]. Without Beckham, though, it could be tough for the Giants to make any headway in the NFL standings. One small favor for them is that either the Green Bay Packers or Atlanta Falcons is going to lose on Sunday.

It’s only Week 2 of the 2017 NFL schedule, but it is already very apparent that Eli Manning and the New York Giants need Odell Beckham Jr. on the field to be a real threat to the other Super Bowl contenders. That may be something the Giants coaches already know, so if Beckham’s ankle injury isn’t fully healed yet, they may hold him back another week so it doesn’t get any worse. Consider these latest New York Giants rumors to be evolving, with Odell Beckham Jr. currently a game-time decision for Monday night.
