Odell Beckham Jr. is widely considered as one of the best wide receivers on the planet. It's why he gets so much attention from the media and defenders, and also why he got paid the big bucks this offseason.


But is he considered one of the best punt returners in the league?


According to FanDuel he might not be, as he was given the high 40/1 odds to score on a punt return this season.

Considering how electric he is, this might be a solid gamble.

Over the course of his young career, he hasn't had many opportunities. He's fielded 33 punts for 263 yards, an average of just less than eight yards per attempt, and most importantly, zero touchdowns. In fairness, that's not entirely Beckham's fault though.

He actually took two punts to the house in 2016, but had them both called back due to holding penalties.

Look at these moves and decide the odds for this to happen for yourself.

His only issue is whether or not new head coach Pat Shurmur will give him the chance. Right now, Kaelin Clay is listed as the team's top return man with Beckham as his backup. That's not set in stone, as Clay is young and Beckham could be the spark the Giants need in any given game to bring home a win.

If he's lining up to return a punt, it's safe to say Beckham has a shot to take it to the house, at least once.
