1. Odell Beckham leads Baltimore Ravens in receiving week two

After Zay Flowers led the Baltimore Ravens in receiving week one so many fans are wondering if this will be the case all season. Flowers had 10 targets to three for Beckham, and he had nine catches to just two for Beckham. So, it would be a surprise if we left week two and saw Beckham as the top pass catcher.

However, he still did a lot of things that indicate that he is the number one wideout. He led the team in routes run and air yards. While Flowers was getting all of the schemed-up touches and was being motioned around, Beckham was the X, who played on the line and ran the routes down the field.

Beckham also had two targets that did not count because he drew pass-interference penalties. If you add in the 17 and 26-yard penalties that Beckham helped create, a four-catch for 76-yard game would be promising and would be just two yards behind Flowers.

Now, the attention will start to shift to Flowers. This will open things up for Beckham. The Baltimore Ravens need to open the offense and push the ball downfield more. That means more attempts for Beckham to lead the way. Do not be surprised if he bounces back in a big way.
