3. Are the Baltimore Ravens getting enough out of Odell Beckham?

When the Baltimore Ravens signed Odell Beckham Jr. in free agency, there were plenty of reasons to be concerned. Beckham missed the entire 2022 season while he recovered from a torn ACL. He is now 31 years old, and the best days are over for him. 

Beckham currently has 19 catches for 218 yards. He is averaging 31.1 yards per game, which is down from the 73.6 he averaged for his career. He is also averaging 6.6 yards per target and 1.31 yards per route run. For his career, he averages 8.3 yards per target and 2.09 yards per route run. We knew he would not be better than his old days, but we thought it would not be such a depressing drop. 

Injury has had to do with it, but Beckham has been healthy since week five now. Since week six, his yards per game jumped to 34, but that still features a zero-yard game in week eight. 

Beckham had a season-high 56 yards against Seattle, and he had 2.24 yards per route run, a game that was like his older days. However, he also lost a fumble and had a drop. It has not come together for Beckham with the Baltimore Ravens, and that is unfortunate.
